The scandals that have surrounded Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson since their marriage and divorce are laid bare in Fergie & Andrew: The Duke & Duchess of Disaster.
Once a handsome and loving couple with the world at their feet, they fell from grace in a blaze of bad publicity after marrying in 1986.
This documentary premiere delves into Andrew’s scandalous friendship with convicted paedophile Jeffrey Epstein and his recently arrested right-hand woman, Ghislaine Maxwell.
It also examines the succession of gaffes and undercover tabloid stings that followed in the Duchess of York’s wake once she was no longer part of the Royal Family after her divorce from Andrew.
The saga of Prince Andrew and Fergie is a sequence of disasters. She sought attention and the kind of indulgence she could not afford, and he mistook deference for friendship – his judgement clouded by his status.
However, throughout the years one thing has been constant – the Duke and Duchess have managed to remain good friends. But will it ever be possible for Fergie and Andrew to shake off the mistakes and the sensations of their past?
At 9.00pm following Fergie & Andrew: The Duke & Duchess of Disaster comes The Royals: A Family in Crisis.
This documentary looks at the developments affecting the modern monarchy, including royal weddings, grandchildren, marital issues, Prince Phillip’s ongoing health concerns, and the rift between Harry and William which led to Harry and Meghan acrimoniously quitting the Royal Family entirely – all told in great detail with archival footage and exclusive interviews with royal insiders.
