King’s ‘Olive Branch’ to Disgraced Andrew: Charles’ Christmas ‘Invitation for Fergie’

King Charles’ ‘request for Fergie to spend Christmas with the family’ would be an ‘olive branch’ from the Monarch to his brother – but would never have been permitted while Prince Philip was alive.

Sarah Ferguson is expected to spend Christmas with the Royal Family for the first time since her divorce from Prince Andrew 30 years ago.

According to royal analyst and biographer Phil Dampier, any ‘invite’ would be an indication of Charles being ‘forgiving and generous.’

‘This looks like an olive branch from King Charles to his brother, who is otherwise out in the cold,’ Dampier said.

He is still a member of the family, and by inviting ex-wife Fergie, Charles appears to be forgiving and compassionate.

‘It would never have happened while Prince Philip was alive and Fergie spent many Christmases on her own at Wood Farm while the rest of the royals were in The big house.

‘Andy and Fergie’s daughters are grown up with kids of their own so it makes sense for them all to be invited, including the Duchess of York.

‘This will please Andrew but I still don’t think he and Sarah will ever remarry’.

Following the couple’s divorce in 1992, the Royals barred Fergie from spending Christmas with his family.

In the aftermath of the Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell sex trafficking scandal, the duke was relieved of his royal duties.

Wood Farm, on the other hand, is apparently being readied to accommodate Andrew, Fergie, and their children Beatrice and Eugenie.

Andrew is barred from public life, but you can’t ban him from family Christmas. Sandringham staff have been charged with preparing Wood Farm for the entire York family.

‘After her divorce from Andrew, Sarah was never allowed to spend Christmas Eve or Christmas Day with the family while Philip and the Queen were still living.

‘She had Christmas supper on her own for 30 years. But today things are done differently.’

Royals customarily exchange presents in Sandringham’s White Room during Christmas, followed by a black-tie evening supper.

It comes after Andrew was photographed in his Range Rover at Windsor on Monday, after a former head of royal protection called him a “over-inflated egotist” for insisting on keeping his armed police guards.

The Duke of York, 62, appeared stressed as he drove his green 4×4 around the Berkshire town where he still lives with his ex-wife Fergie, amid claims he was left fuming after being informed by government ministers that his £3million-a-year armed police guards would be axed in the aftermath of the Jeffrey Epstein scandal in December.

As a working royal, the King’s brother was originally entitled to a taxpayer-funded security detail consisting of armed police officers who accompanied him on all travels outside of Windsor, where he lives at the Royal Lodge.

The decision to deprive Prince Andrew of his formal responsibilities in January signaled that he would not be returning as a senior royal, and the newest action suggests that Andrew will confront a significantly stronger position on the subject with Charles than he did with the Queen.

This came after facts of his association with paedophile Jeffrey Epstein surfaced, as well as the catastrophic Newsnight interview in which he denied sexually assaulting Virginia Giuffre.

Meanwhile, Mike Tindall is anticipated to be invited to Christmas as a result of his involvement on I’m A Celebrity.

Fresh off witnessing Jill Scott being crowned Queen Of Jungle, the 44-year-old rugby player, who came fourth on the ITV1 show, seemed in good spirits as he spent time with family on Monday.

Mike was accompanied by his wife Zara, 41, and their three children, Mia, eight, Lena, four, and Luca, 20 months, as they visited the theme park.

The Sussexes are unlikely to receive an invitation.
