                            Is Camilla not going to Princess Eugenie's wedding because of rumoured rift with Prince Andrew?

The Royal family apart from one familiar face will be attending Princess Eugenie's wedding on Friday in Windsor, England. The Duchess of Cornwall and Rothesay will not be attending Princess Eugenie's wedding as she is currently in Aberdeenshire, Scotland. 

This will be Camilla's second day of events in Scotland and she is visiting many local schools and also the Highland Games Pavilion. Many royal reporters shared that Camilla's events had been planned much before Princess Eugenie's wedding date was fixed. Camilla's husband Prince Charles is expected to attend the royal wedding despite rumors that he and Princess Eugenie's father, Prince Andrew, have some rifts. 



 

Rumors and speculation are suggesting that Camilla's absence is because of the fact that Prince Andrew did not really support her wedding to Prince Charles after the death of Princess Diana. As reported by Mirror, a source close to Camilla shared that Camilla "has always felt Andrew could have done more" and went to the extent of saying that he was "deeply unhelpful". Prince Charles will leave for Scotland post the wedding lunch. 

A royal expert, Richard Kay, claims that Camilla wrote a handwritten letter to Princess Eugenie and apologized for not being able to attend her wedding to Jack. She shared that she had already made the commitment to visit a local school and did not want to disappoint the students.

The former wife of Prince Andrew and Eugenie's mother Sarah Ferguson was very close friends with Princess Diana. Sarah Ferguson's relationship with the royal family has been a bit strained and complicated. 



 

In the year 1996, she officially got a divorce from Prince Andrew after there were many cheating scandals and also four years of separation. In the year 2010, Ferguson was caught up in a bribery scandal and was caught offering access to her ex in exchange for money. Sarah was invited to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding which took place in May but she was not invited to the reception after. She was not invited to Kate Middleton and Prince William's in the year 2011.
