We are forced by events - namely Fergie pointedly refusing to rule out remarriage to 'my Prince' Andrew - to revisit the famous year 2000 interview with Tatler in which Andrew said he might consider remarriage, and Fergie chimed in her agreement.
In the interview with Tatler, Prince Andrew said: "We are not just doing it for the children. We are doing it for our own benefit too," before adding, "I don't rule remarriage out and I certainly don't rule it in. If ever the opportunity arose, I do not know what I would do, as it is not in the plan."
The duchess told Geordie Greig, the editor of Tatler: "There has been no discussion on remarriage or reconciliation or any other such word ... I simply say if it should happen, great. It is not in, nor is it ruled out."
She added: "The love is still very much there, just in a different form ... Our situation at Sunninghill is quite extraordinary and very original."
Oh yes indeed!
