The heir to the throne is said to adamantly opposed the idea of Fergie becoming a royal again, according to The Sun. A source close to the Prince said: “Charles is not OK with Fergie. He can’t stand her in reality. “He thinks she’s brought embarrassment to the Royal Family in the past and his relationship with his brother has been strained as a result. “They don’t get on personally. There’s so much baggage because he feels she sided with Diana over Camilla all those years ago.
“He looks at a royal like Lady Sarah Chatto (Princess Margaret’s daughter), an intellectual and someone who loves the arts, and thinks Fergie is no comparison.
“The fear with her is that she will never stop promoting herself and looking for ways to make money off her royal position.”
Even though Fergie was not invited to Prince William’s wedding to Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge in 2011, the Duchess of York is now closer than ever to rejoining The Firm.
It comes as the couple, who have been divorced since 1996, were claimed to be having an intimate relationship by a reporter this week.
Unlike previous years, both Prince Andrew and Fergie are now single and not dating or pursuing other people.
Prince Philip, who once disliked Fergie, has no objection to their relationship.
Close friends say he “doesn’t care” anymore if the couple are reunited.
The Queen is also supportive of Fergie as she has invited her to Balmoral over the summer for the past three years.
Fergie married Prince Andrew in 1986 at Westminster Abbey and became parents to Princess Beatrice in 1988, and Princess Eugenie in 1990.
However, the couple’s marriage became strained when Andrew’s naval career forced them to spend months apart.
The Duchess of York was often seen in the company of other men, including her American adviser John Bryan who she was pictured with on holiday in France.
The couple then separated in 1992, with their divorce being finalised in 1996.
Despite their differences, the Duke and Duchess of York have remained close and share homes in Windsor and Switzerland.
