Dropped by all, ridiculed by the press, Prince Andrew can only rely on the unconditional support of his ex -wife, Sarah Ferguson, who is with him on the same roof as the Royal Lodge, in Windsor’s large park. The ex-Duchess of York said she was trying to unite her family to “honor the Queen’s forgiveness and kindness”, insulting that Prince Andrew was a ‘good and kind man’. Sarah Ferguson, who divorced from the Duke of York but still lived with him while living in the UK, said she was determined to keep a happy family unit for their two daughters and now for their grandchildren.

How wonderful she is as a mother, grandmother and great -grandfather and how lucky I am to be able to answer this question from a personal perspective. I think that’s probably one of the main reasons I’m so supportive of keeping the York family together for Her Majesty. Because I am so inspired by her greater power of consistency, perseverance, forgiveness and kindness – it’s more. ”When asked if she would ever marry Prince Andrew if she had a chance to live her life again, the Duchess frankly replied: “Oh yes. He was a very nice and kind man. He was a good man. And our wedding was a wonderful day. It’s just amazing. I think my life is an incredible life, I am very lucky ”. How they were able to share the same roof at the Royal Lodge despite their divorce in 1996, he insisted it was not his real home due to the fact that he spent a lot of time abroad for love , including refugees.
“I spent so much time abroad doing my philanthropic work that when I came back I was very lucky to be living here,” the Duchess said. “It is very wrong to say my home. It’s a place where we’re a united front of women, it’s their home and now my grandchildren come here. But Andrew and I are divorced and I think it’s very important for people to realize that I don’t spend a lot of time here in England.

She continues to stand with her two daughters. “Beatrice, Eugenie and I were called tripods and we remained strong in continuing to tell our truth”.
