It was Sarah's first public outing in months and it comes just a day after it was revealed that her ex-husband Prince Andrew, had reached an out-of-court financial settlement with his accuser Virginia Giuffre.

Princess Beatrice and Eugenie's mother looked glamorous in a black gown with sheer sleeves and a sparkly belt.

Sarah looked stunning as she left Claridge's on Thursday

Earlier in the day, the former royal was pictured being driven through Windsor Great Park in her Range Rover.

Sarah has been keeping a very low profile since the Duke was served with legal papers which alleged he sexually assaulted Virginia Giuffre in 2001 – even temporarily putting a pause on her YouTube channel, Fergie & Friends, where she used to read a children's book every day.

Her last video was posted on the 31st of December.

Sarah has also been silent on Instagram, and only recently returned after a month-long absence to make a special announcement.
