Sarah Ferguson found herself in a slightly awkward situation on Wednesday's Good Morning Britain when she faced probing questions about Prince Andrew's alleged tiff with King Charles III.

Fergie, 64, joined Susanna Reid and Martin Lewis on the morning show on 5 June to discuss her recent health scares, having been diagnosed with skin cancer this year following her breast cancer treatment.

The Duchess of York discussed her journey to recovery and even her wish to join the cast of Netflix's hit series Bridgerton. However, the atmosphere shifted when Martin Lewis brought up the reported squabble between her ex-hubby Prince Andrew and his brother, King Charles III.

It's reported that there's tension because Charles is nudging Andrew to pack up from the Windsor residence he shares with Sarah. Addressing the elephant in the room, Martin cautiously asked, "Bit of a damper... obviously, you live with Prince Andrew in Royal Lodge."

"What's the scoop with that? " Martin queried, prompting Sarah to reply, "Well, you know it's not a ‘Debbie Downer’. It's life in the fast lane. I'm a guest for a start. I am a very lucky guest and a very comfortable guest, thank you very much", reports the Mirror.

Choosing to remain neutral, Sarah added, "But I tend not to get involved in brothers' discussions and I think that's the best, most safe place to be."

She firmly stated, "Let the brothers discuss it between themselves and I keep it like that.”

King Charles and the Duke of York are reportedly locked in a heated debate over the future of Royal Lodge.

The monarch has allegedly threatened to cut ties with Andrew if the scandal-hit Royal continues to refuse to leave the £30million mansion where he's resided for two decades (since signing the lease in 2003) and which he shares with his ex-wife Sarah.

King Charles is said to have suggested that Andrew relocate to the smaller Frogmore Cottage, amid whispers that Prince William is eager to move into the property as the future king. Prince Andrew was relieved of his official duties after being forced to step down due to his involvement in the Jeffrey Epstein scandal.

As the one who manages the Royal household's finances, King Charles has contemplated limiting funds, including Andrew's hefty £3million security bill, if he remains in the Lodge.
