Tensions may be rising the Royal Family once more as Prince Philip could be set to see his ex-daughter-in-law, Sarah Ferguson, a lot more. The Duke of Edinburgh and Duchess of York famously feuded during her scandal-plagued separation and divorce from Prince Andrew. However, according to Royally Obsessed podcast hosts Roberta Fiorito and Rachel Bowie, the Queen may have accepted the Duchess of York again.
Ms Fiorito told listeners: “In 1996, Andrew and Fergie’s split became official.
“I thought it was interesting that Fergie apparently received a lump sum settlement of about £3 million for her divorce.
“It seemed low, but according to interviews she was way more focused on maintaining her relationship with the Queen.
“That to her was the ultimate thing that she wanted to leave with in tact.”
She continued: “Of course, there were numerous scandals for Fergie.
“And none of them endeared her to Philip, who was already annoyed about the very public cheating and divorce.
“Ever since then, their relationship in particular has been quite bad.
“But flash-forward to present day and there are rumours running rampant that Fergie and Andrew are back together.”
Ms Bowie added: “It is interesting to think about, but what we do really know is that Fergie is back in the Queen’s good graces.
“I guess that’s despite how Philip would feel about it.
“But she’s also about to have a great 61st year with the new grandbaby with Eugenie and had Beatrice’s wedding and her YouTube channel has been a delight.”

Fergie’s relationship with both Philip and the Queen had begun positively as they all shared common interests.
However the breakdown of her marriage to Andrew threatened to derail a lot of her goodwill in the family.
The publication of the infamous toe-sucking photos during a Balmoral holiday seemed to be the final nail in the coffin.
According to one oft-repeated telling, Prince Philip marched downstairs with a copy of a paper with the photos on the front page, handed it to Ferguson, and quipped, ‘There but for the grace of God go I’.
The Queen suggested that Ferguson return to London, and in effect exiled her from the family’s inner circle since then.
