Before William's second son came into the picture, Prince Andrew was the sixth in line for the throne. But we're willing to bet he's not too upset about falling in ranks to the seventh spot. Why, you ask? Let's break it down.

According to the Royal Marriages Act 1772, the first six people in succession for the Head of Commonwealth title are obligated to ask the Queen's permission before they marry someone. This means Prince Andrew is now free to wed anyone of his choosing. But who could it be, we wonder?

The flame is strong

Well, from the looks of it, Prince Andrew has been very close with his ex-wife, Sarah Ferguson. The pair separated in 1992 and divorced in 1996, after the reports of Sarah's infidelity surfaced. They did, however, remain in contact, mainly because the two share daughters, Eugenie and Beatrice.

What's even more interesting, the Duke and Duchess of York still live together at the Royal Lodge in Windsor. Also, Ferguson doesn't hide her warm feelings towards her ex-husband. She sometimes posts about Prince Andrew on her Instagram, and once even refered to him as "the best looking."

In addition, royal insiders call their relationship"strange"and can't exactly say what's going on between the two.

Of course, it's very significant that Prince Andrew is now free to choose his wife by himself. It wouldn't be surprising if the Queen disapproves of Sarah Ferguson, given her behavior leading up to the couples divorce.

We prefer to believe that love is still strong between the ex-spouses. Next year is wide open for the royal weddings, so why postpone the festivities?
