Wedding bells in the air for the Duke and Duchess of York?
by FFE Entertainment News
In a speech during the Bath Children’s Literature Festival on Sunday, Sarah the Duchess of York said that her story with Prince Andrew “has a happy ending all the time.” Although she did not confirm nor deny news that she and the Duke of York may remarry, she said that their relationship was “lovely” and that they were committed to their daughters and to “what is good.”

With an audience consisting primarily of children, the Duchess of York revealed that she had “married a handsome prince” who was “very, very, very good-looking” and “even married with a sword.”
She added “We had a very beautiful wedding. Mummies and Daddies in the audience might remember it – I think they might have had a day off.
“He really is still my handsome Prince. We really believe in being good parents for our girls.”
The couple divorced in 1996 after years of official separation. However, the Duke and Duchess remained close and both live at Royal Lodge in Windsor. The couple also joined their daughters Princess Beatrice, 25, and Princess Eugenie, 23, for a weekend earlier this month at Balmoral, the Queen’s Scottish retreat.

When asked if they plan to reconcile, the Duchess merely said “He’s still my handsome prince, he’ll always be my handsome prince.
“It’s lovely that we are such a family and the story has a happy ending all the time.
“In our every day, we really respect each other and we honour each other and it’s just lovely to have that sense of integrity, to what we believe is right; to what is good and compassion and love and kindness.
“And that’s the way we are.”
The Duchess appeared in the festival to promote her children’s book Ballerina Rosie and to campaign for bookshops. She lamented that kids today are more exposed to texting and using apps, saying “it’s not encouraging children to write properly, spell, punctuate and keep a discipline.
“We must continue, no matter what, to encourage reading, writing, literacy in children.”
The Duchess supports Books Are My Bag, a nationwide campaign among publishers, bookshops and authors that celebrates and promotes bookshops.
