May 18 2008 – Peter Phillips / Peter Philips & Autumn Kelly wedding pictures
Peter Phillips & Canadian bride Autumn Kelly at St George’s Chapel, Windsor. They got married on Saturday, May 17, 2008.
Peter Phillips is the grandson of Queen Elizabeth. This is the first British royal couple who has sold the exclusive rights to their wedding photos to a commercial magazine, Hello!
However, the silver lining was that this ensured privacy to Kate Middleton and Chelsy Davy, the girlfriends of Prince William and Prince Harry. Prince William could not attend because his best friend had his wedding in Africa on this same weekend. Prince William sent Kate Middleton as his representative to attend on his behalf. Chelsy Davy was attending this function as her important milestone as this was her first invitation to a royal event.
Autumn Kelly’s parents worked to bring up their children. Autumn Kelly’s father is Brian Kelly and her mother, Kitty, is a hairdresser. Autumn Kelly’s elder brother Kevin is a chef. Autumn Kelly’s younger brother, Chris, is a builder.
There was a green theme as the bridesmaids wore green. The bridegroom’s best men wore green colored ties under black suits.

Chris Kelly was the opposite in nature to his twin sister, Autumn Kelly. Autumn Kelly was social and outgoing. Chris Kelly was quiet and reserved.
Chris Kelly smoked a big cigar.
In a bizarre conincidence, Autumn Kelly’s nickname back then was Princess Autumn.
Autumn Kelly had applied for a job in the Security Intelligence Service in Canada. Autumn Kelly passed her first round of interviews after her application was approved for the post of the counter-espionage agent. Autumn graduated from Montreal’s prestigious McGill University. Autumn Kelly had a degree in Asian Studies specialising in Chinese. Autumn Kelly studied Far Eastern languages. Autumn Kelly had read extensively about Chinese business expansion and its efforts to steal industrial secrets.
Oxford and Cambridge were recruitment places for spies. McGill University in Canada was also the same. After Autumn Kelly met Peter Philips, she lost interest to become a spook for intelligence. Autumn Kelly moved to UK.
Hello! would sell 20 pages of the royal wedding pictures. Queen Elizabeth and the immediate royal family were not consulted over the £500,000 deal. Autumn Kelly’s blue collar family could not afford to pay for her wedding. Peter Philips’ mother, Princess Anne, was reluctant or refused to pay for her son’s wedding. Autumn Kelly was made the scapegoat to save Peter Philips from blame. Autumn Kelly was said to be the responsible person who negotiated for the sale of her wedding photos. Autumn Kelly and Peter Philips’ wedding was the most private one that did not give the public access to coverage because Hello! had its exclusive deal.
The Royal Palace aides laid stringent conditions on the photographers from Hello! They were instructed to photograph Autumn Kelly and her relatives. They were forbidden to photograph around Queen Elizabeth and the immediate Royal Family.
Queen Elizabeth and her Royal Family assembled to pose for free photos for her loyal and beloved subjects. Hello! magazine asked for permission to use their cameras to snap on their equipment this family portrait. Their requests were denied. Only British newspapers were permitted to take the privileged, rare pictures of the Royals gathered together.
It was a dignified snub to show that money could not buy real, blue blood Royalty.
