Prince Andrew's corner will never be empty so long as Sarah Ferguson is around.
"Andrew is a true and real gentleman and is stoically steadfast to not only his duty but also his kindness and goodness of always seeing the best in people," the Duchess of York, who's been divorced from the Duke of York since 1996, wrote on Instagram on Friday. "I am deeply supportive and proud of this giant of a principled man, that dares to put his shoulder to the wind and stands firm with his sense of honour and truth."
His ex-wife's loyalty aside, Andrew's "sense of honour and truth" has come under intense scrutiny in the wake of an interview he gave to BBC Newsnight in which he acknowledged that staying at a residence belonging to convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein was "definitely the wrong thing to do"—though when he was doing it, he reasoned, it seemed like "the honorable and right thing to do."
Or in Duchess Sarah's view, "It is so rare to meet people that are able to speak from their hearts with honesty and pure real truth, that remain steadfast and strong to their beliefs."
