When Prince Andrew and Sara Ferguson divorced in 1996, the royal family hoped that the days of her scandals would be left behind. Unfortunately, that has yet to happen and she remains an involved member of the royal family, and still lives at the Royal Lodge with her ex-husband!
As Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s wedding draws closer, one question that was on the front of our minds was what role Duchess Ferguson, or Fergie as she is affectionately known, would play. When Prince William and Kate got married back in 2011, Fergie wasn’t even invited to the ceremony.
However, Prince Harry is close to his aunt Fergie and personally spoke to the palace officials and told them she would be attending. He left no debate in his orders, so Fergie will be present at the upcoming nuptials this time!
Controversy is now swirling around the fact that although she is a member of Harry’s family as he sees it, she is not invited to the private Family celebration of the wedding! Prince Charles, Harry’s father, will be hosting a secondary reception for the family and he has made it clear she is not welcome.
In fact, Prince Charles completely disagrees with her current relationship with Prince Andrew! While it may be sad that Duchess Fergie will not be celebrating with the rest of the family, we’re certainly relieved that this time she will at least be at the wedding!
This is an intriguing story, and we thought we could follow it up with a video that is sure to get a smile out of anyone! We hope you enjoy the video below!
