Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson are afraid they will be kicked out of the Royal Lodge after the death of Queen Elizabeth II. According to The U.S. Sun, the divorced royal couple fears King Charles III is considering changing who lives at the royal residences. One insider told the outlet the Duke and Duchess of York feared they’d be «thrown to the wolves.» Another royal insider told The U.S. Sun, «They are no longer under the protection of the Queen, but it would seem callous to throw them out so soon after she died.» The second royal source added, «But if he’s doing no duties and rattling around a £30 million mansion during the cost-of-living crisis, then it’s a terrible look.»
According to Woman & Home, the Royal Lodge is a Georgian mansion in Windsor Great Park with 30 rooms. Fergie and Andrew’s home has an indoor swimming pool, a private chapel, and eight cottages for staff. The Royal Lodge was a getaway for King George VI and family. Marion Crawford, a former governess to Queen Elizabeth and Princess Margaret, said the mansion was a place for the royal family to relax. «At Royal Lodge, court etiquette was forgotten, and ceremony left behind… We had all our meals together and went for picnics, and above all, we gardened,» Crawford once said (per Woman & Home).
