Sarah Ferguson and Prince Andrew divorced in 1996.

"Of course, being in the public eye constantly brings challenges, but also great privileges," she added.

The former flames' bond often confuses royal watchers, but biographer Andrew Lownie hinted at their love of Eugenie and Beatrice connecting them forever.

"The reason they are still living together is partly because they are still really good friends, and partly because they want to be good parents," Lownie added.

"She of course gets all the benefits and status of being still connected to the royal family," Lownie continued. "She can live at Royal Lodge for free, and enjoy all the benefits of cooks and staff, which gives her a certain status that is very important to her in terms of earning a living."

Despite their split and Andrew losing HRH status, Ferguson and the Duke of York often attend royal engagements with one another.

"Prince Andrew and the Yorks are firmly back in the fold," a source told an outlet. "There's a feeling that, no matter what Sarah's personal faults — and she can be like Marmite in that respect – she has been a good mother to the girls and loyal to Andrew."

Victoria Arbiter alluded to the Yorks enjoying their friendship.

“There’s long been speculation regarding whether or not Andrew and Fergie will remarry," Arbiter told GB News. “But their current situation seems to suit them both well so why complicate things?”

"We always say we are the most contented divorced couple in the world," Ferguson said during a television appearance. “We're divorced to each other, not from each other.”

“Fergie’s previously said they’re the happiest divorced couple she knows so there’s little to be gained by remarrying," Arbiter continued. “They’ve always shown immense loyalty toward each other and clearly their relationship works exactly as it is.”

In January, documents from Jeffrey Epstein's case were unsealed, and Andrew was further implicated in the scandal. Royal editor Charlotte Griffiths claimed Ferguson was "drafted in on wifely duties."

"Even though they're not married, she is very much on hand nonstop to just keep him going," she said on GB News.

"There are some basic things that you can do if you're a posh royal living in the country, and actually he's been socially outcast from even some of those," she explained. "So he certainly can't do any charity work or any royal work of any kind. Especially now in the light of this second batch of documents."

Ferguson spoke to Bella Magazine.

Lownie spoke to Daily Express.
