Sarah Ferguson talks Prince Andrew relationship in rare interview: 'We're a solidified team'

·Freelance Writer

Sarah Ferguson has given a rare insight into family life with former husband Prince Andrew and their two daughters, Princess Beatrice, 30, and Princess Eugenie, 28.

During an interview on ‘Good Morning Britain’, the Duchess of York spoke candidly about her relationship with Andrew, post-divorce, describing him as a “great father”.

“The way we have always managed is to be very, very solidified as a team together,” the 59-year-old revealed.

We support each other emotionally and we support each other health-wise.”

In turn, the former couple’s amicable relationship has enabled the family to stay close despite them filing for divorce in 1996.

“At least every two weeks we sit down together and communicate, the four of us,” Ferguson added.

The Duchess also discussed her role as a mother to Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, who wed Jack Brooksbank on October 12, 2018.

“I believe in example by leadership,” Ferguson revealed. “The way I have been a mother to my girls, is I never hide anything from them. So, the fears? We address them straight on.”

“I think the one thing I’ve done incredibly well – although I say it myself – is that I’m a really good mum. I think that my girls show that.”

Despite calling it quits on their decade-long marriage, the Duke and Duchess of York have remained close friends over the years.

The former couple famously lived together in the Royal Lodge from 2008 until 2015 when Ferguson moved into a ski chalet in Switzerland that they purchased together.

Speaking about her parents surprisingly friendly relationship, Princess Eugenie told Vanity Fair back in 2011 that they’re the “best divorced couple I know.”
