THE Queen’s eldest grandson has used his Royal connections to sell milk on Chinese TV – potentially raking in “tens of thousands” for the appearance.
Peter Phillips has appeared in two adverts for a state-owned dairy firm in China – adding to the row over what Harry and Meghan might do next as they seek “financial independence”.
Phillips, son of Princess Anne, can be seen on the advertisement smiling at the camera and holding a glass of milk.
The 42-year-old appears in front of a large stately home, with the caption reading “British Royal Family member Peter Phillips”.
He grew up on his mother’s large estate in Gloucestershire, and boasts of being brought up on Jersey milk from a herd at the property.
Phillips and his Canadian wife Autumn Kelly also raked-in the cash by selling their wedding in 2008 to Hello! Magazine.
He has never had HRH status, and has been scrutinised in the past for how he made his money along with sister Zara.
Last year it was reported that he held meetings to discuss launching a horse-racing private members club in Hong Kong.
The 30-second advert shows Longleat House in Wiltshire in the background complete with a replica of a royal carriage, according to the Daily Mail.
In his advert, which could see him making tens of thousands of pounds, Mr Phillips says: “Bright Dairies has got a fantastic reputation all over China and outside of China as well, for producing high quality dairy products.”

Donning a black bow tie and dinner jacket, he is seen peering out of a high window, before a butler approaches him with a bottle of milk on a silver platter.
He then tells viewers: “As children, we used to spend a lot of time down at the dairy. There was a herd of Jersey cattle at Windsor and we were brought up on it.
“And it was always much fuller of flavour, much creamier, than other milks that we had growing up. That has something to do with the way the cows are bred.”
Buckingham Palace declined to comment when contacted by The Sun last night.
