Reports have it, Prince Andrew is back in a relationship with Sarah Ferguson, his ex-wife. They got divorced in 1996 but still kept living together while raising their daughters.
Last year Fergie famously said she and Andrew ‘never really left each other’ and are ‘the happiest divorced couple in the world.’
Last weekend, She joined Prince Andrew after he completed a number of official royal visits overseas. The couple stayed in Bahrain on a private visit but were official guests of their host, the Bahrain Crown Prince.
It is the first royal visit by the Duchess of York in over 25 years and has been seen as proof that she is increasingly becoming part of The Firm again.
Friends of the couple say it is an open-secret that the pair are now ‘friends with benefits’ as neither is dating nor linked to anyone else.
According to Metro UK, royal sources said the previous barrier to them getting back together again was Prince Philip. The Queen’s husband was said to have been furious at Fergie after she was pictured having her toes sucked by businessman John Bryan. However, the Duke of Edinburgh is said to have mellowed and now simply ‘doesn’t care’ if Andrew and Fergie are officially reunited.
On her part, the Queen has always had a soft spot for Fergie and has invited her to Balmoral for the last few summers.
The only person who reportedly could prevent their reunion is Andrew’s elder brother and heir to the throne – Prince Charles. Prince Charles is said to be adamantly opposed to Sarah becoming part of the royal family again. She took Princess Diana’s side during the acrimonious divorce with Prince Charles and he is said to be worried she will try to make money from her royal position.
