Fergie leaves Balmoral Castle early amid dispute with Prince Philip

Fergie leaves Balmoral Castle early amid dispute with Prince Philip

The Duchess of York has reportedly cut her trip to Balmoral Castle short, where she was staying as a guest of Queen Elizabeth.

Sarah Ferguson arrived at the estate late last week but has already begun her journey back home from the Scottish Highlands.

According to the Daily Mail, Fergie made a quick getaway after Prince Philip arrived at the castle, a few days earlier than originally expected.

The pair have had a rocky relationship ever since she and Prince Andrew divorced in 1996, with insiders claiming that the Duke of Edinburgh refuses to be under the same roof as the Duchess.

Ferguson was spotted arriving at Balmoral on Thursday after travelling from London to Scotland via a commercial flight.

Prince Andrew on the other hand came via private jet. It is assumed the reasoning behind the separate travel arrangements is due to rumours circulating around Andrew’s relationship with Fergie, as many hope the pair are back together.

The Duke of York was spotted for the first time in public on Sunday after news broke of Jeffrey Epstein’s apparent suicide over the weekend.
