dfter thirty years, Sarah Ferguson is about to spend his first Christmas at Sandringham. To banish her from the Norfolk residence – and from the Christmas celebrations with the royal family – was the Prince Philip. Who had included her in her “black list” in the summer of 1992, when the duchess, not yet divorced from Andrea, was photographed topless in Saint Tropez while Texan billionaire John Bryan sucked on her toe. When those pictures were published, Sarah Ferguson was right at Balmoral Castle. Since Philip no longer wanted to find the duchess under his own roof. While Queen Elizabeth, over time, returned to consider Fergie the redhead part of the family.

The divorce between Sarah and Andrea was announced in 1992. And since then, as revealed by a source al Sun, “as long as Philip and the Queen were alive, Fergie was never again admitted to the Christmas festivities at Sandringham”. Now that the Duke of Edinburgh and The Queen are gonenow that on the throne is Charles IIIit seems that the veto on Sarah fell. An insider has in fact revealed to the Sun that the staff of Sandringham he is already preparing the Wood Farm – a five-bedroom residence – where Fergie, her ex-husband Andrea and their two daughters will stay during the Christmas holidays Beatrice and Eugenie with their respective husbands and children. «For thirty years, Sarah spent Christmas alone», the insider told the Sun. “But this year things will be different.”

The invitation to Sandringham could also mean, as speculates the Daily Expressthat the Duke and Duchess of York will appear alongside other members of the royal family during the traditional Christmas day walk to St Mary Magdalene church. Andrea’s presence in public, however, is by no means a given. Since he was involved in the Epstein scandal which cost him the loss of titles, official positions and military honors, the prince has been as much as possible marginalized, on official occasions, by the royal family. Last June, just to give an example, during the Trooping the Color on the balcony of Buckingham Palace he wasn’t there. But maybe King Charles will make an exception at Christmas.
