Andrew And Sarah Divorce: What Sarah ‘Fergie’ Ferguson Has Said About Divorce From Prince Andrew?

Andrew And Sarah Divorce: Along with public disapproval, a worldwide economic downturn, and other difficulties, the immediate royal family also had to deal with the trauma of three divorces in a decade. Prince Andrew, the second son of the Queen, announced his divorce from Sarah “Fergie” Ferguson first of the three royal children.

What Sarah ‘Fergie’ Ferguson Has Said About Divorce From Prince Andrew?

They started dating in 1985, and on July 23, 1986, they tied the knot at Westminster Abbey. Before beginning their romantic relationship, the two had known each other since they were children and spent many Saturdays together at polo matches.

After their wedding, Prince Andrew and Fergie became known as the Duke and Duchess of York and represented the British monarchy on official overseas trips and royal engagements.

As a result of their union, the couple had two daughters: Princess Beatrice in 1988 and Princess Eugenie in 1990.

However, after separating in March 1992, Fergie and Prince Andrew announced their divorce in 1996, nearly a decade after their wedding.

There were severe problems in their marriage long before they divorced.

When asked what advice she would give to Kate Middleton before her April 2011 wedding to Prince William, Fergie gave further insight into her marriage problems with Prince Andrew in a 2007 interview with Harper’s Bazaar.

They were separated for extended periods, she said because Andrew’s job required him to serve in the navy. For the first five years of their relationship, they only saw each other an average of 40 days per year.

Fergie advised Kate, “All I’d say is, no matter what, stay with your man; don’t let him be taken from you. Even if he isn’t a prince, your love for him will keep him by your side forever. I wed my boy, a prince, and a sailor by coincidence, because I loved him (and still do) and because my only requirement was “I have to be with you.” The newlywed Andrew, who assumed he would be stationed in London, was told by the courtiers, “You have to go to sea,” just two weeks after the wedding.

During my first pregnancy, I was left alone with the baby; after Beatrice was born, Andrew was given 10 days of shore leave, and when he went and I cried, they all said: “Grow up and get a grip.” Keep your own counsel and don’t let anyone tell you how to think, act, or be. Authenticity is the most important thing.

The couple officially split up on March 19, 1992. It was declared by Buckingham Palace that Fergie would no longer represent the Queen in official royal capacities.

In August 1992, the split made news once again when photos of American finance manager John Bryan kissing topless Fergie in a sunbather were published in the Daily Mirror.

Paris Match, a French magazine, was fined £84,000 for publishing the images of Fergie and Bryan without their permission.

When Fergie and Prince Andrew announced their split in 1996, they also shared custody of their daughters Beatrice and Eugenie. On May 30, 1996, they completed their separation.

When asked by Harper’s Bazaar in 2007 why she wanted a divorce, Fergie said it was so she could start a new career.

She explained that she and Andrew decided to divorce so that she could “go off and get a job” because “it’s not right for a princess of the royal house to be commercial.”

Fergie has made hints since the early 2010s that she is interested in reconciling with her ex-husband Andrew and getting back together with him for a second marriage.

She told Good Morning America that she and Prince Andrew were still together before the premiere of her documentary Finding Sarah in 2011.

A visitor of the Queen in 2013, she remarked to The Telegraph, “He’s [Prince Andrew] still my handsome prince, he’ll always be my handsome prince.”

In July 2021, Fergie told The Telegraph, “All I can say is that we’re pleased with the way we are right now.” The publication had asked her about her relationship with Prince Andrew. We always say we are the most contented divorced couple in the world. In other words, we’ve gotten a divorce from each other but not from each other.

We are a loving and supportive blended family that values family above anything else. I’m proud of the job we have done together in bringing up our children and sustaining a strong family unit. Our watchwords are open dialogue, mutual understanding, and kindness.

Prince Andrew and Fergie look to be on good terms at this time. They got the corgis after the Queen died in September 2022 and she and her ex-husband got custody.

For Ferguson, it was “a big honour” to take over care of the Queen’s dogs, which she called “national treasures” in an October 2022 article published in Town and Country Magazine.
