Britain's Princess Anne denied banner-headline reports Monday that she was planning to divorce her estranged husband, Mark Phillips.

"I haven't seen a paper today," Queen Elizabeth's only daughter told Independent Television News. "Divorce? Never been mentioned by anybody."

Princess Anne and Phillips announced their separation last August, saying there were no plans for divorce proceedings.

The Daily Express said the princess was pushing to end the 15-year-old marriage despite Phillips' wish to let the separation run on indefinitely.

The Daily Mirror and Today reported that Queen Elizabeth had given Anne permission to divorce Phillips. But the Daily Mirror said the monarch was insisting the 39-year-old princess should not rush to untie the knot.

Buckingham Palace declined comment.
