Since Prince Andrew was very fond of his stuffed animals, his ex-wife, Sarah Ferguson, slept in the same bed with them when they were together, author Ingrid Seward claimed.
The expert said that during their marriage, the red-headed beauty was surrounded by "around a dozen teddy bears" on his bed.
Recently, Andrew's former maid, Charlotte Briggs, shared some interesting details about Andrew's bedroom.
"I said to her, ‘Oh Fergie, you haven’t still got your old teddies have you?'" Briggs recalled. "And she said, ‘No they are all Andrew’s.' We found it very funny and fell about laughing.”
Briggs worked for the royal family in the '90s and said that arranging his stuffed animals was a big task.
“As soon as I got the job, I was told about the teddies, and it was drilled into me how he wanted them," she confessed. “I even had a day’s training. Everything had to be just right. It was so peculiar. It was so odd. After all, he was a grown man who had served in the Falklands. But he absolutely loved the teddies and was very clear about how he wanted them arranged. All 72 of them. Each had to be carefully positioned. They were old-fashioned teddy bears — the Steiff ones — and nearly all of them had sailor suits on and hats."
“It took me half an hour to arrange them — most bizarre thing to be paid for," she added. “Then, at bedtime I had to take all the teddies off and arrange them around the room. They each had a set place. We had to stack the smaller ones in an unused fireplace, again in size order, to make them look pretty. His two favorite bears sat on two thrones either side of the bed. The others would sit at the foot of the bed on the floor.”
