A royal feud: Sarah Ferguson, Camilla Bowles came to blows over Princess Diana during holiday in Balmoral
There was a massive row between Camilla and Fergie due to some long-standing differences that the two women have shared for quite some time now.
We are guessing that Sarah Ferguson must have been quite pleasantly surprised when the Queen invited her to stay over at Balmoral this summer. The Queen, who is still quite close to Prince Andrew and her grand-daughters Princess Beatrice and Eugenie, made a remarkable gesture by calling her ex-daughter-in-law to stay with them in Scotland, ahead of Princess Eugenie's wedding.
Meanwhile, the world was still sinking in the news of Fergie getting back into the royal fold, the news of a very public spat between her and the Duchess of Cornwall has again put her in the center stage. Reportedly, Fergie had a huge fallout with Camilla during her stay at Balmoral. The two had quite an “explosive row” over late Princess Diana, reports Express UK.
According to a source, Camilla and Fergie had a long-standing difference, which had something to do with the 20 years of tension that the women have carried over the late Princess Diana.
“It seems that Fergie has never really confronted Camilla over the pain and heartache she caused Diana over her affair with Charles,” the source was quoted as saying. The source further revealed: “Fergie and Camilla came to blows at Balmoral last week, it was an enormous row that absolutely no-one saw coming.”
“Fergie and Diana were close friends and she saw first-hand the anxiety and depression that [Camilla and Charles’] affair brought to her – and it’s always churned away inside Fergie.” Revealing all to the publication, the palace insider claimed: “Fergie couldn’t hold it in anymore and really let Camilla have it during after dinner drinks at Balmoral.”
"She and Camilla have never seen eye-to-eye, but being at Balmoral brought back a lot of memories of Diana and all the time they spent there together – so it was only a matter of time before she let Camilla have it." As per the palace insider, Fergie apparently told the Duchess of Cornwall that she had “blood on her hands for all the pain she caused."
It was a known fact that the Duchess of York was extremely close to the late Princess Diana, as the two had known each other for six years prior to their marriages into the royal family. Some rumors even claimed that it was Princess Diana, who set up Prince Andrew and Fergie. Diana had invited Fergie to a polo match afterparty at Windsor Castle in 1985.
Speaking about her late friend, Fergie had once said: "Diana was one of the quickest wits I knew; nobody made me laugh like she did."
