CAUSE Andrew and Sarah Ferguson were spotted driving in Windsor as the royal faced her insecurity.
The Duke of York, 61, and his ex-wife were seen driving from the Royal Lodge today amid a tense few weeks for Andrew with the Virginia Giuffre sexual assault case stalking him.
The Duke of York – who has now lost his royal and military titles – is battling a sexual abuse case filed by Virginia Roberts Giuffre after a judge in New York has ruled, it will continue.
She alleges she was forced to have sex with Andrew three times when she was 17 – a claim the 61-year-old has always strongly denied.
Andrew will now face his trial as an “ordinary citizen.”
And following the sexual assault case, Prince Andrew could lose his security forces and armed bodyguards 24 hours a day, as he is “not a working royal.”
Andrews is expected to lose all three security guards in June 2020 following a Home Office cost-cutting review – but clung to them after the Queen intervened.
His thinkers were once said to cost £100,000 a year in wages, flights, perks and hotels.
