Five years after Princess Diana and Prince Charles and Princess Diana had their wedding, the world witnessed another royal wedding. The younger brother of the future king, Prince Andrew, married Sarah “Fergie” Ferguson. The Duke and Duchess of York had a marriage riddled with scandals and infidelities and finally ended in divorce in 1996.
Despite this, Andrew and Fergie have been on great terms ever since, and they even live under the same roof. In addition, since she has been spotted several times at royal events recently, public interest sparked again. People now want to know how many times was Sarah Ferguson married, and if she and Andrew may marry each other again. Read on to learn what Fergie will lose if she remarries someone else.
How many times has Ferguson been married?
Her marriage to Prince Andrew was her only marriage so far. Before this, she was reportedly in a serious relationship with one Paddy McNally. Some people believe she actually married Andrew “on a rebound” after her breakup with McNally, who was a widower and 27 years older than her. He did not wish to ever marry again, which was a problem for her.
A royal writer named Judy Wade spoke about this in the documentary Fergie: Downfall of the Duchess: “Probably she did marry Andrew on a rebound when Paddy McNally made it clear he wasn’t going to marry her.” Despite not working things out, Ferguson and McNally have been in contact over the years and are friends today.
What she will lose if she marries someone else
Many royals believe and hope Fergie and Andrew will remarry someday. They have been the subject of makeup rumors a lot, and have spoken fondly and lovingly of each following their divorce. However, they seem to be in a situation that suits them best.
The Duchess stated once that they are the “happiest divorced couple in the world.” IN addition, she is probably not in a rush to get married again with anyone else in the foreseeable future, because if she does, she cannot keep her royal title of a Duchess.
After her divorce, Sarah continued to use Her Royal Highness in front of her name. After several months, it was issued and stated that she could not continue to use the HRH title any longer, since she was not married to Andrew anymore. However, she was allowed to keep her duchess title and is still officially known as Sarah, Duchess of York. However, is she ever marries anyone else, this will also be removed from her name.
