Sarah Ferguson and Prince Andrew divorced in 1996 just 10 years after they tied the knot.
But shortly after calling it quits, the Duchess of York left a cryptic message for her ex-husband on her memoir, “My Story.”
Since the Duke and Duchess of York divorced, it was assumed that they stopped talking to each other about their day to day activities. If they had to talk, it was probably just about their two daughters, Princess Beatrice, and Princess Eugenie.
As such, the mom of two’s decision to dedicate her book to her ex-husband surprised royal fans. On the first page of “My Story,” the words “For Andrew” were written.
And the first few pages of her memoir were also quite surprising. Instead of throwing shade at her ex-husband, Ferguson expressed her approval of Prince Charles’ younger brother.
“I loved most of all how Balmoral relaxed the man I had married: Prince Andrew, the Duke of York. On this vast estate, my husband felt sprung from glaring eyes and incessant protection; he could drive about its acreage without a policeman at his side… He became easy and full of gentle fun, his truest self, and it was lovely,” she wrote.
This week, the former royal couple reportedly returned to Balmoral to spend some time with Queen Elizabeth II and the other members of the royal family. The Duchess of York’s invitation to the vacation home came as a surprise to royal fans because she’s no longer an official member of the royal family.
Unfortunately, Fergie’s trip to Scotland was short-lived. According to multiple sources, the mom of two was forced to leave the Queen’s sprawling estate much earlier than expected because Prince Philip suddenly arrived to reunite with his wife.
Ferguson and Prince Philip’s relationship is still strained at the moment. Sources claimed that the Duke of Edinburgh has not forgiven his former daughter-in-law for all of the shame she subjected the royal family to years ago.
