Sarah Ferguson & Prince Andrew don’t seem to have any plans to remarry right now

Princess Eugenie wedding

Before Prince Andrew’s years-long involvement with Jeffrey Epstein reemerged around Epstein’s 2019 arrest, one of the big stories around Andrew for years was will Andrew and Fergie remarry.” I can see now that Andrew and Fergie both wanted those stories out there, and that their “will-they-or-won’t-they remarry” conversation hid a multitude of sins. Still, the storyline in 2016-18 was “Fergie and Andrew will remarry when Prince Philip dies.” The theory being that Philip absolutely loathed Fergie and refused to acknowledge her. So will it finally happen? Nowadays, Sarah Ferguson is desperate to distract from the Epstein stories, so I imagine that’s why this old chestnut got dusted off:

Sarah, Duchess of York has opened up about her unique relationship with former husband Prince Andrew and addressed rumours that the pair are set to remarry. Sarah and Andrew split in 1992 and divorced in 1996 but continue to live at Royal Lodge in Windsor together. Their close friendship and living situation has meant the former couple has been plagued by rumours that they will one day reunite romantically – something Sarah appears to have not ruled out.

“All I can say is that we’re happy with the way we are right now,” she teased when quizzed about their relationship in an interview with The Telegraph.

“We always say we are the most contented divorced couple in the world. We’re divorced to each other, not from each other,” she added. “We are co-parents who support each other and believe that family is everything. I’m proud of the job we have done together in bringing up our children and sustaining a strong family unit. Our bywords are communication, compromise and compassion.”

While Sarah may be happy with their current situation “right now”, she is still single and admitted she finds the idea of dating during a pandemic a “nightmare”.

“I will say this: I feel very sorry for young people trying to date during this pandemic. It must be a nightmare! In answer to your question, there’s no one in my life,” she said when quizzed on her love life.

I’ll admit that I’m genuinely interested in whether they will remarry now that Philip is gone. We heard for so many years that Philip’s “still alive” status was the only thing keeping them from a remarriage. Now it seems more likely that they would want to remarry so that they couldn’t be made to testify against each other in any and all future criminal and civil trials! And yes, it’s still kind of crazy that they live together at Royal Lodge still, after all these years. By the way, what in the world is happening with that Swiss ski chalet that Andrew bought and Fergie was using for a time, and then the previous owner sued Andrew for failing to make his annual payment?

    How lovely that the media are quizzing Fergie on her and Andrew’s relationship status and not on his continued evasion of the FBI in a child sex abuse trafficking case. She would be a fool to remarry him because if the ish finally does hit the fan, it’s going to splash on her too. I for one think they should just go ahead and get hitched again and have another big public ceremony. The BRF sure could use the good PR that royal weddings bring 😉

    • (TheOG) Jan90067 says:

      Freeloading Fergie is WAY OUT of the age range that PA prefers. He is an Ephebophile (Ephebophilia strictly denotes the preference for mid-to-late adolescent sexual partners). While he may want to keep Freeloader close because she knows ALL his secrets, there won’t be any reason to marry because, sadly, he will NEVER go to trial. NEVER.

      Even as much as Charles detests him, to have EA (Ephebophile Andy) branded as such legally, and jailed, WILL be the end of the monarchy. It’s one thing to be whispered/talked about, it’s another to be LEGALLY branded as such, so intimately, w/in the immediate family.

  2. ThEHufflepuffLizLemon says:

    I’m always curious about logistics. Obviously Royal Lodge is huge. Do they live on the same hallway? Have dinner together regularly? Or just wave occasionally in passing? Is there still any “romantic” connection afoot?
    It’s absolutely none of my business and Andrew is a criminal and a pedophile, but if this was fiction, and he wasn’t so awful, it would be a great premise for a romantic novel-or comedy.

    “Years ago, she divorced her Prince Charming to save the embarrassment of having her miscommunication in a business deal come out during trade negotiations with a nearby ally. Now she’s moved in to the castle to get through the two Royal weddings of their girls and help the grieving family through the loss of the King. Could this former Princess still get her fairy tale ending?”

    But instead, he’s a pedophile and they’re gross and she’s covering him because they’re both up to their neck in illegal stuff. I prefer my fiction to her blathering.

    • Lee13 says:

      I don’t personally believe that there is any “romantic connection” left between these two. Any discussion of a potential re-marriage gives me strong Troy McClure & Selma from the Simpsons vibes. Nothing to see here folks!

    Last I heard of the swiss chalet was that they were trying to sell it. As for Fergie and Andrew remarrying, as Kaiser said it would only happen so that they won’t have to testify against each other in court. Furthermore they will never remarry because Andrew is attracted to young girls. Fergie is too old for him and I believe this was the real reason why their marriage broke down. Their current arrangement suits them very fine. They keep each others secrets and Sarah gets the perks and privileges of royal life without having to be married to Andrew. Oh and the reason Fergie is doing interviews now is she’s promoting her new historical romance.

    • (TheOG) Jan90067 says:

      Apparently last heard, TQ finally bailed them out for the balance of the monies.

  4. Becks1 says:

    I would not be surprised if there was a quiet remarriage at some point, but I think it be less out of love and more as a way to avoid testifying etc. I think a lot will depend on what happens with Ghislaine Maxwell over the next few months.

    It’s weird to me because Fergie and Andrew are both so, let’s say, problematic, and yet they seem to be the most close-knit family unit in the Windsors, and Andrew is willing to defend his daughters against the Firm while Charles seems to hide behind the Firm to punish his sons. Maybe that’s just because the princesses are on social media more and show more of that side? Maybe because Andrew desperately needs the family image? IDK.

    • Merricat says:

      Maybe it’s that neither of them can pretend to be perfect, like the Cambridges do. Perfection doesn’t allow for vulnerabilities, and without that, there’s no intimacy.

      • Tessa says:

        I don’t think the Cambridges can get away with pretending to be perfect. I think some don’t buy into their spin. The trouble is that Andrew is not in a position of power but William is and will be King someday. which is not a good thing.

      • Merricat says:

        I think their behavior has shown how imperfect they are, yet they nonetheless try to project that image, as in Kate Who has Never Put a Foot Wrong. Also, I don’t think it’s a forgone conclusion that the monarch will survive long enough to accommodate William.

    • Digital Unicorn says:

      I agree that they will have a quiet marriage at some point in the future, esp if Maxwell talks. Plus there is the money aspect, Chuck will completely cut off Andrew from the public purse when he takes the throne but am sure Mummy will leave him a nice big pot of money in her will – Fergie will want a piece of that.

    • Sofia says:

      One of Andrew’s “best” qualities (actually his only quality) is his fierce defence of his daughters and constantly fighting with Charles about them. He tried/tries getting them security, money, working royal privileges etc etc and while Charles has shut them all down, Andrew at least fights and keeps fighting for it.

      That is the only thing I will EVER give Andrew credit for. Nothing else.

      • Maria says:

        I don’t really give credit to him for that. He does that because he doesn’t want to pay for them.

      • Tessa says:

        Andrew would also want to see his heiresses be working royals and get security other working royals get and the prestige of being a working senior royal.

    • Rnot says:

      It really says something about the family that Andrew and Fergie appear to be the best parents compared to the Queen’s other kids.

      • Tessa says:

        I’d agree except for Andrew not being a role model due to his association with Epstein and Ghislaine.

  5. Lizzie Bathory says:

    If I took my young daughters to “Pedophile Island” & was photographed at parties with Jeffrey Epstein, I think I’d be keeping a low profile right now. And yet we’re hearing a lot about Fergie these days. I guess there’s only so much time to get some cash before Charles is on the throne.

  6. Harla says:

    I would like to know where the public outrage is regarding Fergie living rent free in a royal property! Is the outrage lost behind the couch? Was it misplaced on the bookshelf?

    • MsIam says:

      I guess the Daily Fail hasn’t told the people they should be outraged by this. “Save it all for the Sussexes, how dare they escape our clutches!”

  7. Sofia says:

    Did Fergie and Andrew even want to divorce in the first place? I would have thought they would have been happy having an open marriage but the toe sucking incident caused too much embarrassing for the firm and they essentially got them to divorce, not the two people involved in the marriage. I haven’t looked closely at their relationship so if this is all wrong, sorry!

    • (TheOG) Jan90067 says:

      It seems Philip said that he didn’t care if she was going to cheat, but “too get caught, and have it splashed on the front pages was “too much”".

      Here’s just one article I found about it; there are more:

    • Tessa says:

      Fergie complained because Andrew was away on military assignments. That said. There were reports she was “bored” with him, he would just like his golf games and sitting in front of the TV. She strayed with two people, both her financial advisers. I think they were done as a couple but perhaps would have led separate lives. A picture was discovered with the first financial adviser holding one of her children and the second financial adviser she was caught with.

  8. Chaine says:

    My guess is as long as she gets to live for free at his mansion, her testimony will be Andrew did nothing and she knows nothing about Epstein and Maxwell.

  9. Ainsley7 says:

    Andrew and Fergie’s marriage was never about love. The Queen forced a divorce on them because they embarrassed the monarchy. Andrew and Fergie didn’t want a divorce. They were perfectly happy with their arrangement. Which is why Andrew never kicked her out. Why would he? They’ll get remarried if they think they might be called to testify against each other, but otherwise there is no reason to. They’ve never been anything more than friends and have the same penchant for get rich quick deals with shady people.

  10. Tanya says:

    It’s not a Romantic situation. Fergie moved to Royal Lodge because she is broke and had nowhere to live. Her brokenness had become embarrassing to the family so Andrew moved her in. Even their domestic help has blabbed to the press that there is no intimacy between them. They both just live there.

  11. Rapunzel says:

    I wonder if Fergie hasn’t all along been a cover for Andy’s sexual perversions.

  12. Jennifer says:

    I still don’t get their relationship. Are they platonically living together or just semi-secretly boinking/a couple here?

  13. Tessa says:

    I would say never. Neither one was true to the other. And her living there IMO was due to her money problems over the years.

  14. Alexandria says:

    Does she have her own house? I reckon she’s living there because Andrew doesn’t want to buy her a house and also pay for extra security. So he just rides on the privileges he has and shares them with Fergie.

    Damn UK, you really got to get rid of these leeches or just leave them to Britain.

  15. sassafras says:

    They were clearly good chums who were not sexually compatible. The ickiness of Andy’s preferences and the Royal melodrama w/ Phillip aside, there’s actually something quite lovely about best friends who raise a (seemingly) happy, functioning family together. It would be a nice thing to normalize, IMO, in this age of “non-traditional” families.
