While Prince Andrew and his daughters Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie all attended King Charles III’s coronation on May 6, Andrew’s ex-wife and Beatrice and Eugenie’s mother, Duchess of York Sarah Ferguson, did not.

This is because Fergie wasn’t invited.

There’s definitely no bad blood between Fergie and the royal family though as she shared on Instagram that, despite not receiving an invite, she celebrated the historic event at home.

“I hope you have got the bunting out ready for the Coronation tomorrow. I certainly have,” the Duchess wrote.

“Today I assembled a tea fit for a King which I shared with the residents at the Manor Care Home in Windsor to help them celebrate. Enjoy the weekend!”

Along with this caption, Fergie shared some sweet images of her set-up (and one of her cute dogs made an appearance in the snaps too!)

Fergie spoke further about how she wasn’t invited to the coronation during an appearance on ITV’s Good Morning Britain – and again, made it clear that she was fine with it.

“It’s a state occasion, and being divorced, I don’t think you can have it both ways,” she said.

“I am divorced and I’m really loving being divorced to my ex-husband, not from him but to him, it’s important to differentiate.”

“That’s a lovely feeling to be part of, it really is. [But] as I said, you can’t have it both ways. You mustn’t sit on the fence. You’re either in or out, don’t muck around,” she continued.

Fergie then added, “The great thing about this moment in time is the unity of family, and I think that Charles and Camilla are doing an exceptional job at unifying the family.”

Plus, once Charles and Camilla were crowned during the coronation ceremony, Fergie once again took to Instagram and posted a picture of them along with the caption:

“Sincerest congratulations to Their Majesties, the King and Queen.”
