Duchess Fergie 'deeply unhappy' over royal wedding reception snub: Report

Duchess Sarah Ferguson, commonly referred to as Fergie, is "deeply unhappy" after reportedly not receiving an invitation to the upcoming royal wedding reception, sources told the Daily Mail.

Though Fergie was one of the 600 guests who received invitations to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's upcoming May 19 royal wedding at St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle and subsequent reception at St. George's Hall, Prince Andrew's ex-wife was kept off the list for a second reception reserved for the royal family's "inner sanctum."

The intimate nighttime gathering is being hosted by Harry's father, Prince Charles, "who can't see why she is still such a big part of his brother's life." (Despite being divorced, Fergie and Andrew live together at Royal Lodge.)

"Numbers are limited to the evening party, she is not a member of the royal family anymore and Prince Charles simply doesn't have time for her," a source told the Daily Mail, while also noting that daughters Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie did receive invitations to the party.

The outlet added that, despite Fergie's controversial reputation within the royal family, she and Harry have remained close. So, despite being snubbed by Prince William and Kate Middleton for their royal wedding back in 2011, "Prince Harry personally intervened to make sure she had an invitation to his wedding."

"He absolutely, 100 percent wants her there and has told palace officials that in no uncertain terms," a source said.

The Daily Mail also suggested that the family's lasting sourness around Fergie stems from Prince Philip's alleged "grudge" against her after she was caught cheating on his son, Andrew, during their marriage. Philip, who once described his son's ex as "having no point," has reportedly "held a grudge against her for a long, long time and normally refuses to even be in the same room as her."

Though Philip has been laying low recently while he recovers from hip surgery, he is expected to attend his grandson's upcoming wedding, which would put him in the same place as Fergie.

"It will be fascinating to see if the Duke of Edinburgh acknowledges her," a source mused.
