Sarah Ferguson: Why royal baby means Fergie allowed to WED ‘handsome’ Prince Andrew again
SARAH FERGUSON remains close to her ex-husband Prince Andrew, but will the pair ever remarry? It has been revealed they are now free to wed again now the royal baby has been born, due to a royal law.
Sarah Ferguson, 58, who is also known as Fergie, remains close to ex husband Prince Andrew, 58, but the royal baby birth means their ‘strange relationship’ may take a turn.
The Duchess of York married Prince Andrew in 1986, but the pair’s marriage did not last – they divorced a decade later. Despite this, the pair have remained close – it is known Sarah and Prince Andrew still live together at the Royal Lodge.
Will they ever marry again? The birth of the royal baby means there is a chance it could happen.
This is because of a royal law dating back to 1772, known as the Royal Marriages Act, which states the first six individuals in the line of succession to the British throne cannot marry without the king or queen’s consent.
Now that the royal baby of Kate Middleton, 36, and Prince William, 35, has been born, Prince Andrew has dropped from sixth place to seventh place in the line of succession.
This means he is able to marry whomever he chooses without the consent of his mother, Queen Elizabeth II, 92, whose husband, Prince Philip, 96, has a feud with Sarah Ferguson.
Royal laws aside, Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson have made no secret of their affection for one another in recent years.
Sarah often posts pictures of Prince Andrew on her Instagram account, including recent pictures of him on stage at a St James’ Palace event.
Meanwhile, Prince Andrew has made a statement by hosting Sarah as his guest at royal events which are listed on the prestigious Court Circular.
But it was back in 2013 when Sarah really wore her heart on her sleeve about her affection for Prince Andrew.
He really is still my handsome Prince,” she said of Prince Andrew at Cheltenham Literature Festival in 2013
She spoke of the pair’s shared values: “We really believe in being good parents for our girls.”
Later on, Sarah gushed about the pair’s 1986 audience to the audience: “We had a very beautiful wedding.”
“Mummies and Daddies in the audience might remember it, I think they might have had a day off.”
“It’s lovely that we are such a family and the story has a happy ending all the time.
“In our every day, we respect each other and we honour each other.”
Earlier this month, a palace insider opened up about the Duchess and Duke of York’s relationship.
“Believe it or not, they do live together at the Royal Lodge,” the source told Express.co.uk exclusively.
“She used to stay in a different house, but she sold it and moved in after the Queen Mother died.
“He made her an apartment there to stay there. “It’s a strange relationship, no one really knows, even I don’t quite know how it all works.”
