Sarah Ferguson: Prince Andrew ‘SPANKS Fergie’ in rare clip ‘You naughty boy!’
Sarah Ferguson and Prince Andrew shared more than a spicy moment with the public, with the Duke of York going as far as spanking his then-wife on camera – unveiling in a rare video the playful relationship the couple had ahead of their own Royal Wedding.
Sarah Ferguson, also known as Fergie, and Prince Andrew, who were then engaged, are seen joking around while walking to film what seems to be an official shot.
The loved-up couple appear to fail multiple times in their attempts to remain serious.
When Fergie bursts into laughter yet another time, Prince Andrew calls her to go back to their initial position to retake the shot
After Fergie comes near him, the Prince spanks her on her lower back, leaving the duchess speechless.
Seconds later, while the groom-to-be is in stitches, she says: “I don’t like him today!”
In the run-up to their wedding, which took place on July 23 1986 at Westminster Abbey, the pair were also filmed joking around while looking at a dining set Fergie believes to be “really nice”.
In a heartwarming video, the pair chat in front of a series of plates and glasses.
As they seem to choose them, Fergie is heard saying: “These are very nice for dinner if we have nice people to dinner.
“They are extra, they are for me, because I like them.”
As they keep browsing, surrounded by precious china and rare porcelains, Prince Andrew seems confused over a detail related to an object they are taking a look at.
Fergie, after trying to help him remember, calls the Duke “you naughty boy”.
Sarah and Andrew’s marriage lasted for ten years before they decided to separate.
The pair filed for divorce after Fergie was photographed with oil tycoon John Bryan.
The scandal created a rift between the Royal Family and Sarah, with Prince Philip being so angered at the redhead he reportedly can’t stay in the same room with her.
This split sparked fears the Duke of Edinburgh may not attend Princess Eugenie’s wedding on October 12, where Fergie is believed to play a big role as mother of the bride.
Still, Prince Andrew and the duchess continue sharing a close bond, and they still share their family home, the Royal Lodge in Windsor.
Speaking about the years that followed the separation and how her family held together, Fergie had previously said: “Well, it still is a fairy tale, because it just has a very modern, different ending, you know?
“I’m — Andrew and I honour and respect each other. And he’s very kind.
“When I arrive in England, he gives me a room to stay in.
“And the two girls are a fantastic example of co-parenting.
“Andrew and I believe very strongly in that.”
