Prince Andrew could relocate to London with Sarah Ferguson if evicted from Royal Lodge


The Duke of York may be struggling to afford the upkeep of his Windsor home as his annual grant is set to be cut.

Prince Andrew could move into his ex-wife’s Sarah Ferguson home in London’s exclusive Belgravia as he faces possible eviction from Royal Lodge. The townhouse had been intended to be an “investment property” for their daughters Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie, however with the prince’s annual £249,000 grant due to be cut, he may be forced to downsize from his property on the Windsor estate.

Without his grant, Andrew will be unable to maintain the £30million property or pay the £1million per year security costs.

Last year Fergie paid £5million in cash for her London house, with plans for it to become an “investment property” for the couple’s daughters.

An insider told The Sun: “It has been finished to a really high standard, but now suddenly it has all gone quiet about moving a tenant in.

“They are looking to keep it empty to use themselves. It’s a far cry from a mansion on the Windsor estate, but this is their only London property.”

The Duchess of York will do “all she can” to help the Duke, friends say, as she is determined that he will not be supported by taxpayer money.

Fergie has several streams of income from her books and business ventures and still lives with Andrew at Royal Lodge despite their divorce in 1996.

“She and the girls want to do all they can to keep Andrew where he is as it is seen as a significant loss of status for him to lose his home.

“She totally accepts that with a change of reign will come a change in circumstances and she supports King Charles entirely.Royal Ascot - Day 4

When they were first married Fergie and Andrew lived at Sunninghall Park in Berkshire, which was a wedding present from the Queen.

In 2007 Andrew sold it to a Kazakh billionaire for £15million, £3million above the asking price.

In December the prince also finally sold his ski chalet in Verbier, Switzerland, for around £19million.
