Prince Philip did attend the wedding of his granddaughter, Princess Eugenie, but the tension between the 97-year-old and Sarah Ferguson was clear to see, says royal expert Duncan Larcombe.
Larcombe, who spent over a decade working as the royal editor at The Sun, admitted that Philip turning up at today’s wedding as a “big deal”.
They both attended Meghan and Harry’s wedding in May – but remained at a safe distance from one another.
However, at today’s wedding, Fergie sat directly in front of Philip.
Referencing the rift between Philip and Fergie, Larcombe says: “Prince Philip doesn’t like Fergie, I think it’s safe to say, and hasn’t approved of her since way back in 1982, I think.
“There was an issue over whether he was going to turn up. He did turn up, and he sat behind her.
“But, from what I watched, I didn’t see any eye contact between the two of them or anything at all.”
