Early life Edit
Isla Elizabeth Phillips was born on March 29, 2012 at Gloucestershire Royal Hospital, weighing in at seven pounds and four ounces.
At the time, the palace released a statement saying the Queen and her family were "delighted" by her arrival. The announcement read:
|“||"The Queen, the Duke of Edinburgh, the Princess Royal, Captain Mark Phillips and Autumn’s family have been informed and are delighted with the news."||”|
While it has been speculated that Isla's middle name is in honor of the Queen, that has never been officially confirmed.
On Sunday, 1 July 2012, her baptism took place at St. Nicholas' Church, Cherington, Gloucestershire.
Line of succession Edit
Despite her position in the order of succession, Isla Phillips does not hold the title of her royal highness. According to the BBC, children of the daughter of a monarch are not "entitled to the rank " and when Isla's father, Peter Phillips, was born, his parents, Princess Anne and Captain Mark Phillips, declined the Queen's offer to give him a title. Since neither of her parents have a royal rank, Isla doesn't have one either.
Public life Edit
The Phillips family reportedly lives a fairly low-key life in London.Making her royal balcony debut in 2017 at the Trooping of colour, she and her sister Savannah are seen at royal events on occasion.
