SARAH FERGUSON and Prince Andrew have often described themselves as “the happiest divorced couple” but does Sarah’s touching tribute to Andrew mean the pair have reunited?
Sarah Ferguson and Prince Andrew will have a busy few months ahead planning the wedding of their oldest daughter Princess Beatrice. The Princess will wed property tycoon Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi at some point in 2020, and the Duke and Duchess of York are “delighted” with the news. Despite being divorced since 1996, Andrew and Sarah frequently praise one another and even live together.
The Yorks also released a joint statement on the announcement of Beatrice’s engagement to Edoardo.
Sarah and Andrew said: “We are thrilled that Beatrice and Edoardo have got engaged, having watched their relationship develop with pride.
“We are the lucky parents of a wonderful daughter who has found her love and companion in a completely devoted friend and loyal young man.
“We send them every good wish for a wonderful family future.”

But does this touching tribute mean the pair have reunited?
At an event at the home of American businessman Ernie Boch Jr in July, Fergie gave a touching speech about her ex-husband.
She said: “Yes, I do live in Royal Lodge with my handsome prince, who is the best-looking prince of the whole darn lot, you know, there you go.”
The crowd at the lavish party could be heard whooping as Sarah pointed out one of her aides couldn’t help chuckling.
She said: “Antonia is still laughing.

“She’s been with me for ten years and still laughs at my jokes, it’s pretty good.”
Despite divorcing in 1996 after ten years together, Sarah and Andrew are often spotted at events together, even holidaying alongside their daughters Beatrice and Eugenie.
The pair still live together at Royal Lodge in Windsor, following a house fire which destroyed Fergie’s home.
However, it may not be wedding bells for another of the York clan, as friends insist they are not in love.

One friend of the couple told The Telegraph: “They love each other but are not in love.”
“They are best friends who trust each other implicitly.
“They travel a lot so they are often like passing ships in the night, but it works.
“With Beatrice and Eugenie, they are a very close family unit.”

In an interview on Australian radio in 2017, Fergie was asked if she would ever remarry Prince Andrew.
She replied: “I always think ‘have we really?’.
“We’re divorced to each other right now.
“We’ve never really left each other.”
A spokesman for Sarah said in a statement earlier this year: “The Duke and Duchess remain, good friends, as they have been for many years, and nothing has changed.”
