Peter Phillips doesn’t regret not having a royal title.

Peter’s parents, Princess Anne and Captain Mark Phillips, opted for him and his sister Zara not to have an official title and Peter says the decision has allowed him to lead a normal life.

He said: “I think Zara would say the same as I do, that we’ll be forever be indebted to our parents for what they did for us, because they have allowed us to have a normal life.”

However, Peter – who is set to marry girlfriend Autumn Kelly next Saturday (17.05.08) – claims that not having a title hasn’t distanced him or set him apart from the rest of his family.

He told Hello! magazine: “I love the freedom I have but at the same time I’m very conscious of the family that I’m a part of and I’m also extremely proud to be part of the royal family.

“I’m a very staunch family member and I’ll defend them to the hilt in any situation.”
