Princess Anne's children had a "secretive sister" living with them who keeps herself out of the limelight.

Peter Phillips and Zara Tindall have a rarely talked about the younger sister who seems to share a tight bond with the two royals.

Stephanie Phillips, 23, is the daughter of Anne's former husband Captain Mark Phillips and his second wife, Hawaiian horse rider Sandy Pflueger.

She grew up not far from royal siblings Peter and Zara on a nearby farm on the family's Gatcombe Park estate in Gloucestershire following the split of her parents in 2012.

Stephanie was a flower girl at the weddings of both Zara, 39, and Peter, 43, and pictures suggests a tight-knit family.

One cute snap shared on social media shows horse rider Stephanie appearing to give Zara's husband Mike Tindall a piggyback.

Another shows her in a fancy dress with Peter and his estranged wife Autumn while in a third she described Peter as "the best big brother".

One image shows a picture of her with Peter's daughter Isla and a message from Autumn which reads "she loves her Aunty Steph".

The whole extended family have been pictured talking and laughing at equestrian events where Zara has been competing.

Peter and Autumn Phillips' daughters Savannah and Isla, and Zara and Mike Tindall's two daughters Mia and Lena all live on the Gatcombe Estate.

It was given to Captain Mark Phillips as a wedding present by the Queen.

Stephanie now lives in nearby Worcester and has been dating William Hosier since 2019.

She is also believed to be a keen skier and travelled with her boyfriend to the slopes in Austria in January 2020.

Stephanie also likes to travel and prior to the coronavirus pandemic posted snaps from trips to Hawaii, Australia, New Zealand, Croatia and Slovenia.
