“He reminded her of her marital duty and insulted her by suggesting that if she really was going to leave she should book herself into a ‘nunnery or looney bin’.”
Fergie, who shares two children with Prince Andrew, daughters Princess Beatrice, 30 and Prince Eugenie, 29, has had her fair share of public embarrassment, including her infamous “toe sucking’ photos and accepting a bribe from a ‘fake sheikh’ – all of which will no doubt have left Philip furious.
However, in recent years, their ongoing feud seems to have simmered. The Duchess of York was invited to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding at Windsor Castle last May, and held court at her daughter Eugenie’s wedding to Jack Brooksbank at the same venue just a few months later.
Fergie also appears to have been welcomed back to the royal fold, given the increasing amount of joint public appearances she has put in with ex-husband Prince Andrew, sparking speculation that the former royal couple have rekindled their romance.
