Prince Andrew and Sarah, Duchess of York may have spent last week in Balmoral with the Queen, but on Wednesday, the friendly exes headed for sunnier climes as they were spotted touching down in Malaga, Spain. The pair flew out on a private jet without their two daughters Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie and disembarked their plane at around 3pm, photos obtained by the Sun show.

Sarah, 59, looked gorgeous in a green jacket and a black dress. She was spotted carrying two pieces of hand luggage while Andrew looked smart in a suit. The ex-couple reportedly flew from Farnborough airport in Hampshire. According to the Sun, they are staying at their favourite spot in Spain, Sotogrande, a gated community that houses some of the richest families of the UK and Spain.

Andrew is believed to have travelled to Farnborough airport from Scotland, where he was staying with his mother, the Queen, and his elder daughter Beatrice. The trio were pictured going to church on Sunday, along with Prince Charles and Camilla. Sarah was also invited to Balmoral but only stayed a few days.

Although the post was a day late, she explained: "I'm a day late but I wanted to celebrate my parents getting married 33 years ago... Thank you for always being the best of friends and bringing us up together."
