Sarah Ferguson says late Queen helped Andrew through ‘tricky time’

Sarah Ferguson on standing by Prince Andrew

Sarah Ferguson has opened up about the “tricky time” Prince Andrew faced during his sexual assault case brought on by Virginia Giuffre. The Duke of York went on to settle the civil case out-of-court last year for an undisclosed sum.

Sarah, also known as Fergie, has shared how Andrew received help and support from his family during his US legal battle as “no one can break the York family”.

Speaking to the Independent, the Duchess of York said the late Queen Elizabeth was “amazing” as the “strong family unit”, including herself and daughters Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, came together to aid the disgraced Duke during the sexual assault case.

She said: “The three of us have helped their father through a very tricky time.

“And don’t forget also that his mum was amazing.”

“The Queen and I, when she was alive, we both bookended him to help him through this.

“So, we’re a very strong family unit.

“No one can break the York family.”

Following the US case, the Queen stripped Andrew of his royal patronages, honorary military titles, and his official use of his HRH style.

He is no longer a working royal and will not appear on the balcony along with his family for the King’s Coronation in May.

Meanwhile, while speaking with ITV’s Loose Women, Fergie revealed she didn’t even receive an invitation to the grand event and has made other plans for the day.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been invited, the Palace revealed, however, it is still not confirmed whether they will be making an appearance.

Heads of state from Ireland, France, Spain, Belgium, Japan, Monaco and Hungary will be present for the grand ceremony on May 6 in Westminster Abbey.

However, Joe Biden has since announced he will not be attending and First Lady Jill will be attending in his place.
