Fall was born in Montreal, Quebec. She's the daughter of Brian Kelly, an executive and his wife Kitty. She has two brothers, one of which is her twin.

Autumn's parent divorced when she was eight years old and her mother remarried.

Fall had worked as a bartender, model and an actress, and after graduating accepted a role as a management consultant.

Fall met Peter Phillips at the Canadian Grand Prix in 2003. She moved her career over to the UK, working for an American computing firm, and moved in with Peter Phillips and the pair announced their engagement ion 28th July 2007.

Fall had changed career path again and worked as a personal assistant to Sir Michael Parkinson.

Before her marriage to Peter Phillips, Fall converted from a Roman Catholic to a Anglican. If members of the British Royal family marry Catholics they forfeit their position in line for the throne.
