Sarah Ferguson will have various roles to fulfill during Princess Eugenie's upcoming wedding.

The Duchess of York is very hands-on when it comes to the planning and preparation of her daughter's big day. According to Emily Hodgkin of Daily Express, Ferguson will take on the social side of the responsibilities.

Prince Andrew's ex-wife is expected to greet the guests and will also have the honor to sit at the parents' table. Aside from this, the Duke and Duchess of York may also dance together. Since Prince Andrew and Ferguson remain friends after their split, there will unlikely be any awkwardness if that happens.

In fact, according to an insider, the exes are working together in planning the wedding reception. "Sarah and Andrew are helping to organise the evening party," a source told Vanity Fair. "The plan is for a marquee to be set up in the grounds and dancing late into the night."

"Sarah is being very hands-on, but in a great way, and Eugenie wants her mum to be a big part of it all and will make sure Sarah is included in every aspect," the insider added. "Sarah is bringing a very eclectic and exciting guest list to Windsor."

Princess Eugenie's wedding reception will be held in Royal Lodge in Windsor, Prince Andrew and Ferguson's shared home. The duchess is expected to be hands-on with the decorations because she has an intimate knowledge of the house. In fact, she and Prince Andrew still live together in the property even after being separated for years.

"Sarah Ferguson still rules the roost at the Duke's home — even though they're divorced," the insider said.

Ferguson confirmed this in an interview with radio host Kylie Sandilands. "No we're not married - we are very happy the way things are. He is the finest man in my life - he is a nugget of goodness. I threw myself into a love affair for life."

Prince Andrew and Ferguson are expected to sit together on Princess Eugenie's wedding if the bride will give her sister, Princess Beatrice, a major role during the ceremony. Otherwise, she might be seated between her parents.

"If they do sit as a three I wouldn't be surprised if we see Andrew, then Beatrice in the middle and Sarah on the other side," said James Brookes, communications director of Royal Central. "If Beatrice is playing a big role in the service, then it might be that Andrew and Sarah sit together."
