‘Prince Andrew will always be my handsome prince’ says Duchess of York

The Duchess of York has once again spoken fondly of ex-husband Prince Andrew revealing the former couple try to set the best example for their daughters, Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie.

“He really is still my handsome Prince,” the Duchess explained as she attended the Bath Children’s Literature Festival on Sunday. “We really believe in being good parents for our girls.”


Sarah, Duchess of York has spoken fondly of her former husband, Prince Andrew.

“He’s still my handsome Prince, he’ll always be my handsome Prince,” Sarah replied when asked if the couple would reconcile in the future.

Speaking at the festival, the Duchess looked back on her wedding day to the Prince. “We had a very beautiful wedding,” she explained to the guests. “Mummies and Daddies in the audience might remember it, I think they might have had a day off.”

Sarah, who still lives with Prince Andrew at the Royal Lodge in Windsor, explained that the couple’s story still has a “happy ending”.

“It’s lovely that we are such a family and the story has a happy ending all the time.

“In our every day, we respect each other and we honour each other.”

The Duchess who was at the festival to talk about her latest book, Ballerina Rosie, also spoke of the importance of encouraging children to read.

“We must continue, no matter what, to encourage reading, writing, literacy in children.”

Earlier this year reports suggested the couple, who have remained close since their divorce, would re-marry.

“Mark my words, they will marry,” a source told The Daily Telegraph. “It is only a matter of time.”

Reports of the rekindled romance between the former husband and wife was further fuelled when the Duchess joined Andrew and their two daughters at Balmoral to visit The Queen.

The trip was Sarah’s first time at the Scottish estate in over ten years, and the invitation was seen as Sarah being publicly welcomed back into the family.

In recent years, Sarah, has spoken of the reasons behind the couple’s divorce.

“We got divorced because I had to go out to work, and Andrew and I believed that it wasn’t right for me to be commercial while I was still in the Royal Family.”
