17 de sept. de 2021 · While Anne's divorce wasn't nearly as high-profiled as King Charles' separation from Diana Spencer, her marriage was overflowing with drama, infidelity, and conflict. What led Anne and Mark down such a precarious path? Look no further — this is the real reason why Princess Anne got divorced.
We may not know the exact moment when Princess Anne and Tim first met, but in 1986, the naval officer came into the royal orbit when he was made equerry—a sort of official assistant to the royal family—to Anne's mother, the Queen. Prior to that, Tim had served aboard a number of naval vessels, including briefly on the royal family's yacht, the Roya...
Tim was made a trustee on The Princess Anne's Charities trust—at that time, one of just three trustees, according to People. "The appointment just shows Anne's affection for him," a source told the publication in 1989. He remains on the board of trustees to this day, and is its longest serving member.
A number of personal letters from Tim to Princess Anne—who was, at that time, still married to her first husband, Mark Phillips—were anonymously delivered to the UK publication The Sun. The letters were, in turn, given over to Scotland Yard to investigate, and while their contents were never published, they quickly became a source of public specula...
Less than three years after their separation was announced, Anne and Mark Phillips legally divorced. Shortly thereafter, Anne and Tim made their public debut and, on December 12 of that year, the couple wed in a small ceremony at a Presbyterian church near Balmoral (the Church of England did not allow marriage rites for divorced individuals.) Anne ...
Tim quickly became a fixture of royal life alongside the princess, accompanying her on state visits and to royal events. In 2005, the couple attended the wedding of Anne's brother, Prince Charles, to his longtime girlfriend Camilla.
While Tim did not receive peerage through his marriage to Princess Anne, he has been given a number of awards and honors over the years for his service to the crown and the nation. In 2007, he was awarded a CBE—Commander of the Order of the British Empire, the highest rank of the awards—on the same day that Anne's daughter Zara was invested with an...
Anne and Tim spent plenty of time as wedding guests in 2011, attending both the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton together, as well as that of Anne's daughter, Zara to Mike Tindall. In 2011, Tim was also made a Knight Commander of the Royal Victorian Order by the Queen.
Tim and Anne cheered on Zara as she competed at the 2012 Olympics. She ultimately took home a silver medal as a member of the Great Britain equestrian eventing team.
The royal couple attended the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle in May, and of Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbankin October.
During the Queen's Platinum Jubilee, Tim was granted a rare dispensation to remain on the Buckingham Palace balcony, despite a decision to only host working royals (and, in the case of the Cambridges and the Wessexes, their children) on the balcony during Trooping the Colour. "The Queen is happy [for Timothy Laurence] to attend as a frequent attend...
