Despite a romantic reunion still on the cards for Fergie and Andrew, there remains one prominent family member that strongly objects; Prince Philip.
According to a new Channel 5 documentary The Royal Family at War, the Duke of Edinburgh was said to be left fuming when highly suggestive photos of Fergie surfaced with a man she claimed to be her ', financial advisor' were released while on holiday in St Tropez, just five months after the Duke of York announced he was separating from Ferguson.
The photos showed the Duchess of York kissing the Texan millionaire, John Bryan, and in one of the photo's the gentleman is seen sucking her toes.
Royal author Katie Nicholl said: "Up until that point, she had enjoyed warm rapport with her father-in-law but from that moment on the Duke of Edinburgh never forgave Sarah for the embarrassment and the humiliation that she had reaped.
Nicholl continued: "Sarah was never welcomed at Balmoral again, she was never welcomed at Christmas with the Royal Family again. She was an outcast."
