Sarah, Duchess of York gets on famously well with her ex-husband Prince Andrew and continues to support him in his personal and work life. So it was touching to see the Duchess pay tribute to Andrew on social media over the weekend, following the Duke's business trip to China. "So proud of @hrhthedukeofyork and the Pitch team in China. Congratulations to all of the entrepreneurs who took part," Sarah captioned a series of photos of Andrew.

The Queen's son founded Pitch@Palace in 2014 as a platform for entrepreneurs to meet people who can help turn their business dreams into a reality. The scheme runs in 61 countries and Andrew has travelled around the world to meet the well-deserving entrepreneurs.

Sarah and Andrew married in 1986 but split ten years later. The couple, who are the proud parents of Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, have remained the best of friends and even live in the same residence in Windsor, the Royal Lodge.

Sarah has previously spoken to HELLO! about her relationship with her ex and co-parenting, saying: "We're a family unit and we lead by example. We support each other emotionally and we support each other health wise. At least every two weeks we sit down and communicate, the four of us." She continued: "I think the one thing I've done incredibly well – although I say it myself – is that I'm a really good mum. And I think my girls shows that."
