I don't think Andrew can be disliked more than he is now, actually. Judging from comments on the Daily Mail anyway, Sarah is better-liked than him.

I wouldn't be surprised if they quietly remarried someday at All Saints' Chapel in Windsor, walking distance from Royal Lodge. Previously they probably would've wanted any remarriage to be a huge ostentatious celebration, but Covid has changed everyone's expectations. If Beatrice and Edo could marry at All Saints' Chapel with a handful of guests, there's no reason Andrew and Sarah might not do so someday.

I really don't think Andrew has anything to lose by marrying Sarah anymore. Mostly, it seems like he is extremely reviled by a large percentage of the public, while Sarah is viewed as something more akin to an eccentric aunt.

I don't think they will ever remarry. The only change I see would be that Sarah attending more royal events and that's it.

They did go their separate ways it seems with their being involved with other people. I don't think they were pining for each other all those years. I don't think it will happen. Sorry, I double posted. Could the posts be combined?

Sarah has been pretty unpopular for a long time. She was something of a laughing stock before the divorce and her lifestyle since then has not made her popular at all.. Andrew is certainly and deservedly disliked, but it could be worse and I doubt if he is so much in love with Sarah that he wants to remarry her, knowing that he might be even more disapproved of. Sarah was involved with Epstein as well.. she and Andrew both share the love of money that led them into this unsavoury relationship.

Why could they want to remarry? Maybe Andrew would want to give Sarah more security? Maybe she wants to have the HRH back? Maybe they would do it for the kids? Maybe it would be a thread to get more money out of Charles? The fact that the queen did actually order mornng dress instead of allowing Andrew the admiral's uniform (and I think Harry wouldn't have minded to wear a Major's uniform, the one he has worked for!) so I guess it was because of Andrew has shown him that his mother will not forget. She loves him but he has strayed too much. So maybe he could get remarried without loosing anything, but on making Sarah a "honest woman" again and have careful PR now that he is a grandfather and the papers might let loose. Maybe after his mother's death...

The only reason I can think of is without being Andrew's wife they won't be able to be buried together at the royal burial ground at Frogmore. If Sarah is his wife then she could be buried beside him there but otherwise separate burials or he has to be buried somewhere else. Only royals and their spouses can be buried in the Royal Burial Ground.

If they announced they were getting remarried then a lot of things that they potentially want to keep quiet including both their personal lives, scandals before and after divorce, dodgy connections, finances over the last 30 years would become fair game to the media, as well as anything Sarah wants to do in the future. No she wouldn't now be required to start doing royal duties again since her husband is "retired" but there would still be a spotlight on them in ways I'm sure they don't want. And that's just assuming that they would get remarried at All Saints, Windsor and wouldn't try to get somewhere more grand.

I can't imagine them doing it for Sarah's HRH or the kids at this late stage either.

The "kids" are in their 30s and married. What woud it do for them??? and "making Sarah an honest woman"? Sarah has been divorced from him for 20 years, she has had her own life and other lovers, so has he.
I think the concept of marriage making someone "an honest woman" has long since gone..
If Sarah had been his girlfirend for a long time and they had had childrne he might want later in life to marry her but that wasn't the case

It would also allow them to jointly attend family events. If the Duke and Duchess of York were still married, I assume the latter would have been invited to her father-in-law's funeral, and they would have been seated together at Princess Eugenie's wedding rather than arriving separately.

Andrew is rarely seen in public now, so I dont think that she'd miss much... except a few events like chirstenings where we wouldnt see pics of her and Andrew anyway. Look how they were both left out of B's wedding.

There's no law stopping them getting married again but I doubt she'd ever regain her HRH after the last debacle of being caught trying to sell access to Andrew. Knowing that she'd be denied the HRH might deter them as it would be hugely embarrassing & humiliating for them and their daughters..

I did not think of their burials, that’s an interesting point. Unless public opinion shifts, I could see Andrew being laid to rest elsewhere anyway. After living happily as they are, they might worry that their getting remarried would change things. They divorced when I was young but they seem to have been happier divorced than they were married.

On Philip’s funeral, I’m not so sure she’d have been invited on a limit of 30 even if they had been married. He was less forgiving of her than HM I understand. Even for someone who didn’t want fuss, 30 was very small. He had a large family and circumstances in his life made him closer to his extended family than perhaps most of us would be.

If they did remarry, wouldn't Andrew be responsible for her debts?
I know he's helped her in the past, but I don't think he is legally obligated to do so.
If they remarry it could be a different story.

I doubt they would remarry while the queen lives and in Charles' reign, I don't think he would issue LPs to strip her of a HRH once married again to his brother. I wouldn't wonder if they are already remarried and just didn't make it public. I mean, someone must have given Meghan the idea about "Marrying" Harry 3 days before her official marriage...

Of course they are not married.. If tehy had married secretly it woudl have leaked out.. knowing how "discreet" Fergie is herself.
And Meghan's "marrying Harry" was all her own idea....

Whether public opinion shifts or not, Andrew is a Mountbatten-Windsor by birth and he has a right to be buried with his family and his ancestors when he passes away.

I am no fan of his, but really. Enough is enough.

I am also not a fan but neither am I as big a critic as others Iíve come across, not least because he hasnít been proven guilty. That he is not married to Sarah would mean he couldnít have both though as another poster highlighted, and I did wonder if public opinion might sway him to ask the girls to lay him to rest with Sarah rather than in the Royal Burial Ground.

Thinking about it some more, I suppose he could have both without remarrying if he was cremated. Weíll find out what his wishes are hopefully a long time from now.

I don't think they will remarry. Maybe they are better as friends and co parents.

Sarah might not be popular, to put it mildly, but right now, there are no expectations of her. If they remarry (provided that they wish it), she's going to be held up to SOME standards, although not as high as they would have been before his disastrous interview. And she's bound to fail. Wise thing to do: stay under the radar. People just got accustomed to the idea that with two grown-up children with husbands of their own, this arrangement of yours to "bring them up together" isn't going to end. Never, it seems. Why give them a new thing to talk about?



And I'm saying this as someone who has always had a soft spot for both of them despite their epic failures. They blew it up big time. There's no recovery from this. Even if they do want to remarry - and we don't know this, - letting the sleeping dogs lie is the wiser course of action. Then again, it's Andrew and Sarah we're talking about. Wise isn't the word I'd appy to them first.

Just read in the Daily Fail that Andrew and Fergie visited the queen several times since Philip's death. It seems they appear like a couple even when visiting HMS Bubble...
