They’ve maintained an extremely close relationsh­ip since their 1996 divorce. But sources close to the Duke and Duchess of York, both 61, believe it’s only a matter of time until the pair make their way back down the aisle.

Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson are believed to have reconnecte­d during the pandemic when they chose to spend much of the year sheltering together at their Windsor home, Royal Lodge.

“Sarah and Andrew have been closer than ever in the past year,” the source told Vanity Fair. “It has rekindled something and I can see a second wedding happening if it all goes Andrew’s way.”

The pair, who share daughters Princess Beatrice, 33, and Princess Eugenie, 31, may have a while to wait. Despite their new commitment to one another, Andrew has a pressing matter to deal with rst. The prince’s relationsh­ip with late convicted sex o ender Je rey Epstein has landed him back in hot water. The Queen’s second eldest son has been accused of molesting a then-teenage girl. Virginia Roberts Giu re, now 38, has led a civil suit against the prince in a US court, accusing him of sexually assaulting her in 2001 when she was just 17.

Andrew has been accused of hiding “behind palace walls” at the Queen’s Scottish estate Balmoral and “wasting time” after he evaded being served legal papers for over a month.

Regardless, the duchess has made it clear she is standing by her man, who is protesting his innocence. “I kept my commitment, no matter what,” Sarah told Polish TV show Polsat News. “People said: ‘You got divorced.’They don’t know how I feel. Divorce is one thing, but my heart is my oath, my obligation,” she added.
