Queen’s grandson sets up company making coronavirus tests ‘ready in 15 minutes’

The Queen's grandson, Peter Phillips, could be at the forefront of the battle against coronavirus as he sets up a company to make speedy tests.

Princess Anne's son is one of the three founding directors of XF Medical Limited, a new business which boasts tests are "ready within 15 minutes".

The company's website states a "quick and easy finger prick test" is all that is needed inside mobile units that can "come to your office, event or place of work".

The Queen's eldest grandson has been called "an entrepreneur with a background in sports and entertainment", with "unique" experience in "organising large-scale events with specific logistical challenges".

The tests are administered by ex-Forces medical personnel.

The company is already "involved in discussions with a number of corporate entities and organisations", reports the Mail Online.

XF Medical Ltd, situated in King's Road, Chelsea, London, aims to meet the demand of accurate and fast testing during the coronavirus pandemic.

Phillip's spokesperson also said: "Any current or future contracts for Covid-19 testing are commercially sensitive and are under (non-disclosure) agreements."

Philips, 42, has never held a royal title, the same for his sister Zara Tindall.

In 2008, Hello! magazine paid £500,000 for the rights to Philip's wedding to Canadian Autumn Kelly.

Last year, it was reported he held meetings with Chinese entrepreneur Dr Johnny Hon over a possible launch of a horse-racing private members' club based in Hong Kong.

He organised the not-for-profit Patron's Lunch to celebrate the Queen's 90th birthday in 2016, where another of his companies, Sel UK Ltd, was paid £750,000.

Peter and Autumn Phillips announced in February this year they had separated and will co-parent their daughters, Savannah, nine and Isla, eight.
