Tina Brown isn’t the only royal author turning her attention to Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson. The Express reports that Andrew Lownie, who previously wrote tell-all tomes about Louis and Edwina Mountbatten and the Queen’s uncle, Edward VIII, is preparing to publish a biography on the Duke and Duchess of York. He reportedly told The Telegraph, “It’s the third book in a trilogy about unusual royal marriages. It’s going to be a full-scale biography of both of them, like the Mountbatten and the Windsor books, which, as far as I can tell, has never been written before.”
However, Lownie made it clear he’s not looking to take any kind of stance either way and simply wants to tell the story as it unfolds through interviews with those closest to the former couple. The author is also hoping Andrew and Ferguson will speak to him personally, too. “At a time when everyone is happy to put the boot in, I’m hoping to humanize the story and see if there is another side,” Lownie stated. Most pertinently, for royal watchers, the book will delve into why Andrew and Fergie couldn’t make it work, and how they manage to be such good friends nowadays.
As Hello! magazine notes, Andrew and Ferguson have continued living together at Royal Lodge since 2004 and, despite calls to kick them out following the prince’s legal woes, it’s unlikely they’ll ever be forced to leave.
