Sarah Ferguson “horrified” the palace when Prince Andrew was away.

The Duchess of York is bubbly and has always maintained a happy disposition. She immediately won the hearts of the members of the royal family after she married Prince Andrew. However, she also shocked them one time when she flaunted another man while the Duke of York was away.

In Channel 5’s “The Royal Family: Affairs and Infidelities” documentary, Katie Nicholl recalled how Ferguson was involved in scandals before her divorce with Prince Andrew was finalized. Among the string of controversies she got into was with Steve Wyatt.

Wyatt had a reputation of being a playboy. When Ferguson was spotted with him, many saw their connection. There was reportedly a “very close friendship” between the two and there was a “huge amount of speculation.”

According to Majesty magazine editor Ingrid Seward, Ferguson and Wyatt had few dinners and one time he insisted to sit next to the duchess saying that “she’s my woman.”

“The hierarchy at the Palace were absolutely horrified that she could flaunt this man in this way, when her husband was away at sea,” Ingrid explained.

“Prince Andrew was in the Navy, so after the euphoria of the wedding and the honeymoon on Britannia, Sarah was almost imprisoned, if you like, in Buckingham Palace.”

In an interview with “Good Morning Britain,” Ferguson admitted that she and Prince Andrew split because of their long periods of separation. For seven years, she only saw Prince Andrew 40 days a year and it was difficult for her. She felt abandoned as she looked after their two daughters Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie.

They also recognized the fact that they didn’t fight hard enough for their marriage. There are rumors that they have already reconciled and are back together. They never addressed the status of their relationship but Ferguson said their life together is the “greatest ever.”

In related news, Prince Charles is reportedly not supportive of Prince Andrew and Ferguson’s second shot at love. The Prince of Wales is “not OK with Fergie” and couldn’t stand her because of the embarrassment she brought to the royal family.

Aside from flaunting a man while her husband was away, Ferguson was photographed with her financial advisor sucking her toe. Many believed that the “toegate” scandal was the reason for her and Prince Andrew’s divorce.
