, that Charles is not, contrary to some reports, actively seeking to evict Andrew from the palatial home. Hardman said that as long as Andrew can afford to maintain the property, he will be permitted to stay there.
“It seems inevitable now that they will just formalize it within a few years and remarry. They live in the same house, they spend all their time together…”
— Friend of Sarah Ferguson and Prince Andrew
Hardman also wrote that some insiders “fear for [Andrew’s] mental well-being.”
Omid Scobie’s recent book Endgame claimed that Charles had at one stage been “in tears because he was afraid for Andrew’s mental health.”
Some of Andrew and Sarah’s friends believe they will eventually remarry. One told The Daily Beast recently: “It seems inevitable now that they will just formalize it within a few years and remarry. They live in the same house, they spend all their time together, they adore the children, they don’t ever argue.”
A reporter at the London Times wrote after Christmas that Sarah’s late father, Major Ronald Ferguson, once told them: “Those two never wanted to get divorced. It wasn’t them. It was that family.”
Others, however, have poured cold water on the idea. Andrew Lownie, a historian and biographer who is publishing a biography of Andrew soon, previously told The Daily Beast he thought it was unlikely they would ever actually remarry because to do so would inhibit Fergie’s ability to continue working in the private sector.
He said: “I don’t think she wants to get remarried to him. She’s very happy with the current arrangement where she has all the benefits of being in the royal family without any of the restrictions.”
Representatives for Sarah and Andrew have been approached for comment.
