Sarah Ferguson breaks her silence after being snubbed by King Charles with an invitation to her coronation.
The Duchess of York is not expected to attend the event next month, even though Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie were scheduled to attend last week.
Experts claimed King Charles Decided not to invite Sarah to the historic event because she is an ’embarrassment’ and is no longer a member royal family.
She has yet to comment on the news, but tweeted yesterday to support her friend’s charity’s Everest expedition.
She posted: “This is my friend John Chert’s final trek. Suffering from #MotorNeuroneDisease, John climbs Everest to raise awareness about MND and the need for more research.” .
“Please support John by donating to find and share a cure.”
In a follow-up tweet, she shared a photo of John holding a doll of Little Red, a children’s book character.
she wrote: #MND #consciousness.
Yesterday, she was seen for the first time since news broke that she would not be attending the coronation ceremony.
She made a solemn appearance when she was seen leaving the Royal Lodge at Windsor.
The 63-year-old Duchess of York was in the passenger seat of a Range Rover driven by her ex-husband, Prince Andrew.
The mother of two was casually dressed in a tan blazer, shirt and black round glasses.
Meanwhile, Prince Andrew, 63, was wearing a navy jumper over a red shirt and driving a 4×4 out of the complex.
Royal commentator Tom Bower previously told MailOnline that Sarah excluded herself due to her previous “deeds.”
He added that her presence “would provoke critical comments that Charles didn’t want.”
And expert Richard Fitzwilliams praised the “very wise” decision from the king, as she had been “a disgrace to the royal family for years.”
But the apparent decision surprised some royal watchers, with Meghan’s friend Omid Scobie tweeting: “If true, this feels a bit cruel, doesn’t it?
Bauer said Sarah’s absence would be excluded “because she is not part of the royal family.”
He added that she had excluded herself “by her past actions,” and that “her presence would provoke critical comments that Charles didn’t need.”
One of Sarah’s most embarrassing moments came when a photo surfaced showing her getting her toes sucked by her financial adviser, John Bryan, at her Saint-Tropez vacation villa.
She also allegedly had a rift with her former best friend Princess Diana after claiming she got warts after borrowing her shoes. They hadn’t spoken yet when Diana died.
And in 2010, she apologized after an offer to sell access to Andrew for £500,000 was secretly recorded.
Fitzwilliams told MailOnline, “The decision not to invite Sarah Ferguson is very wise and welcome. She has been a disgrace to the royal family for years.
“She gives embarrassing interviews over and over, it seems endless.
“Sometimes dignified silence is necessary, but she doesn’t seem to be able to do it.”
Sarah attended the Queen’s funeral at Westminster Abbey last September, but was not one of 30 guests at Prince Philip’s funeral in April 2021.
She wasn’t invited to Prince William and Kate’s wedding in 2011 and went on vacation to Thailand, but Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding took place at St George’s Chapel in Windsor in May 2018. attended the
Speaking of the coronation, one of Sarah’s friends told The Independent, “She’s hugely supportive of Charles and Camilla and doesn’t want this to be about her.
“All day long we talk about the new king and the success of his reign, but she has always stood up for the royal family. The Queen definitely would have liked her to be there.”
Her lack of invitation came even though Andrew showed up for an Easter service at St George’s Chapel in Windsor — her ex-husband is still excluded from most of royal life.
Sarah herself has also seen something of a renaissance in recent months, being invited to meet King Charles and other senior royals at Sandringham for Christmas, as well as taking care of the late Queen’s corgis.
She was also a favorite of the late Queen and was known to spend a lot of time with her, including walks in Windsor Park.
They knew each other before Sarah married Andrew, as her father, Major Ronald Ferguson, was the royal polo manager.
Last month, Sarah revealed in a chat with Glamor editor Samantha Barry that she had not received an invitation to the coronation, joking that it was “undecided” if she would eventually go. .
“The invitations haven’t gone out yet. Are they there?” she asked when asked if she planned to go.
Sarah also claims she doesn’t mind if she isn’t invited, stating: A tea room at the bottom of the drive with bunting and cake.
