Could Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson be giving their romance another shot? It sure seems like it!
Following their 1996 divorce, the two — who share daughters Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie — are still on good terms.
However, the 61-year-old is currently embroiled in a sexual assault scandal. Last month, he was hit with a lawsuit from Virginia Roberts, who claimed that the dad-of-two raped her when she was 17 years old.
In the documents, which were obtained by The Royal Observer, Roberts claims that the royal "sexually abused Plaintiff in [Jeffrey] Epstein’s New York mansion in this District."
"On another occasion, Prince Andrew sexually abused Plaintiff on Epstein’s private island in the U.S. Virgin Islands, Little St. James," the documents state. "During each of the aforementioned incidents, Plaintiff was compelled by express or implied threats by Epstein, [Ghislaine] Maxwell, and/or Prince Andrew to engage in sexual acts with Prince Andrew, and feared death or physical injury to herself or another and other repercussions for disobeying Epstein, Maxwell, and Prince Andrew due to their powerful connections, wealth, and authority."
Andrew — who stepped down from royal duties in 2019 — has denied any wrongdoing. For her part, Ferguson has stuck by her ex's side.
In August, the red-headed beauty said Andrew was a "thoroughly good man, he's a very gentle man, he's a really good father" while appearing on the TV show Lorraine.
Last week, Ferguson continued to speak highly of Andrew.
“When you make that commitment, you decide to marry a prince,” she told Polsat News of her 1986 wedding. “And I fell in love with him. He was a sailor, he is still. He was a helicopter pilot and was also a prince. I kept my commitment, no matter what. People said: you got divorced. They don’t know how I feel. Divorce is one thing, but my heart is my oath, my obligation.”
