This is no royal affair.
Sarah Ferguson is setting the record straight about a rumored budding romance between her and director, producer and entrepreneur Manuel Fernandez.
"Manuel is a wonderful person, but we are just friends—friends and business partners,' she told the Daily Mail. "I'm the ambassador for his new lifestyle app, vVoosh, which is launching this year."
The Duchess of York was previously married to Prince Andrew, the second son of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, for a decade before divorcing in May 1996. Together, they share two daughters Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie of York.
Since the split, Ferguson has remained publicly single until she stepped out with Fernandez at amfAR's 22nd Cinema Against AIDS Gala in May 2015, fueling gossip that she had launched a new relationship.
