Fergie Not Welcome At Royal Functions

Compiled From Wire Services

The Duchess of York may be getting back together with Prince Andrew, but her mother-in-law won’t have her performing royal duties, a newspaper reported Sunday.

“The duchess will be told that her presence is not required with other members of the family at royal events including state occasions, Royal Ascot and garden parties at Buckingham Palace,” The Mail on Sunday reported, referring to such events as the opening of Parliament and the popular June horse races.

Media speculation of a reconciliation between the former Sarah Ferguson and Andrew, second son of Queen Elizabeth II, has increased since a summer vacation in Spain with their children, Princess Beatrice, 7, and Princess Eugenie, 5.
