The Palmer family
First appearance: "The Singh Brotherhood"
Created by: Lee Falk & Ray Moore

The Palmer family is the family of one of the main protagonists in the American comic strip "The Phantom". The most prominent member is Diana Palmer-Walker, who is married to Kit Walker, the 21st Phantom. Her mother Lily and uncle Dave are frequently featured in the stories.

Over the years, several of Diana's relatives have made appearances in the stories. There are several persons who have been described as "cousins", however, Diana has also been described as her grandfather's "only grandchild", making it possible that the term "cousin" is to be taken as a more general term of relative and not neccessarily as first cousin.
