Kiwi builder Gary Lewis has split from Lady Davina Windsor after 14 years of marriage.

The pair, who met during a trip to Bali in 2000 and married at Kensington Palace in 2004, divorced in 2018, a Buckingham Palace spokesperson confirmed to Hello! magazine.

Lewis, a builder from Gisborne, was the first person of Māori descent to marry into the royal family, and has two children with Lady Davina, the daughter of the Queen's first cousin, the Duke of Gloucester, and 30th in line to the throne.

In 2004, the pair spent time living in Auckland's Grey Lynn.

They have been frequently spotted alongside other members of the Royal family during official engagements, such as at the Trooping the Colour and the marriage of Prince William and Kate Middleton.
