Sarah Ferguson Will Be Seated With Royals At Princess Eugenie’s Wedding Despite Snub At Meghan And Harry’s One

Sarah Ferguson is slowly making her way back to the Royal Family. She might have gotten used to being snubbed at official royal events, but Fergie will play a key role at her daughter’s wedding.
The royal commentator Richard Fitzwilliams thinks Princess Eugenie’s nuptials will be the perfect time for the Duchess of York and her former husband, Prince Andrew, to demonstrate the power of their friendship as they will come together as a united front to support their daughter.
22 years have passed since their divorce, but the pair has been always very cordial and supportive of each other. When Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank will tie the knot at St. George’s Chapel, Fergie and Prince Andrew 'will sit together', thinks Richard Fitzwilliams.
Let's face it she is sitting there as the mother of the bride, not as a royal. She is not royal anymore.— Cariadissima 🍸 (@cariadissima_) June 23, 2018

The royal duo will be united at the ceremony, despite not being permitted to sit together at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s royal wedding in accordance with the royal protocol. Sarah appeared alone when she walked to St. George’s Chapel whilst her husband was accompanied by their daughters.
But Fitzwilliams is sure Fergie will not be alone when Princess Eugenie walks down the aisle in October. He commented:
Royal protocol is made by the royals themselves. I suspect they may well sit together, as the bride’s parents, it would make sense. The issue is one of some sensitivity as the Duchess has rarely been included in royal events in recent years as she is no longer a member of the Royal Family.
Even though the Duchess of York is quite close to her former husband, she has a very complicated relationship with other members of the Royal Family. But, maybe her daughter’s wedding will bury the hatchet once and for all.
