Princess Anne's son, Peter Phillips, has hailed the Prince and Princess of Wales a "fantastic team" amid Catherine's cancer battle.

King Charles' 46-year-old nephew - whose father is Anne's first husband, Captain Mark Phillips, who also has daughter Zara Tindall, 42, with the Princess Royal - has heaped praise on the Royal couple for the way they balance their public life with caring for their three children - Prince George, 10, Princess Charlotte, eight, and five-year-old Prince Louis .

As Catherine undergoes preventative treatment for an undisclosed form of the disease, Peter - who has two children with his ex-spouse Autumn Kelly - hailed her "remarkable".

Speaking to 'Sky News Australia', he said: "Her and William make a fantastic team together.

"Their kids are great, and they have the balance of public life and trying to be parents to three young children which is always difficult.

"They've got it pretty right because I think as history has taught us and anyone knows that actually you want to be there for your children."

Elsewhere in the interview, Peter admitted "it's still quite emotional" thinking back to the last family time they shared with the late Queen Elizabeth in Scotland before she passed away.

The late monarch died peacefully at her beloved Balmoral Castle in Scotland in September 2022, aged 96, and he said it was "easier" to share their grief with the public after having some private time with Elizabeth.

He said: "I was lucky to be in Scotland before she passed and actually having those few days with her, just in Scotland, just as a family, before she left Balmoral – that was really nice.

"Looking back on it, it's still quite emotional, that part was a proper family moment.

"And then obviously when she left Balmoral it became more of a public grieving."

He continued: "In many ways we'd had our quiet moment with her, we'd said our goodbyes, so whilst it still wasn't particularly easy, it was easier to be able to share the public's grief for her."
