When the Queen's son Prince Andrew and his wife Sarah Ferguson went through their very public break-up, the Duchess of York moved out of their marital home to rent a nearby mansion – and it was seriously epic.

Sunninghill Park in Ascot was their marital home together, gifted to the couple by the Queen, and they lived there with their children Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, but from 1994-1997, Sarah leased a property nearby.

Kingsbourne is the official name of the grand house, located on the Wentworth Estate near Ascot. The huge mansion with its multiple rooms also had a tennis court and swimming pool on site.

It is believed that Sarah Ferguson did move back to the family home of Sunninghill though, even after her divorce.
The grand house in Surrey had ample grounds too
Prince Andrew acquired Royal Lodge officially in 2004, two years after the Queen Mother's death as she used to reside there. Then, in 2006, his ex-wife Sarah Ferguson came and joined him at the royal home, and their daughters Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie stayed there until they were adults.

Speaking about her unusual living arrangements to USA Today, the Duchess said: "Andrew and I, we’re the happiest divorced couple in the world – extraordinary, really, isn’t it. We live in the same house, but then, it's a big house, so that’s ok. But I think it's really good that we believe in compromise and communication and compassion. And family."

In 2018, Sarah made another telling comment: "Although we are not a couple, we really believe in each other. The Yorks are a united family. We've shown it. You saw it at the [royal] wedding. We stand up for each other, fight for each other. We're totally respectful of each other’s position and thoughts and we listen to each other … And we sit around the table and have afternoon tea together. It’s a very important part of our lives."
The Grade II-listed residence, Royal Lodge, boasts 30 rooms and has lavish interiors, and lots of the décor is revealed via Sarah's YouTube channel and Instagram account.
