Princess Eugenie was a day late to celebrate her divorced parents’ wedding anniversary, but she made sure to make up for it with a sweet message for them.

Princess Eugenie took to Instagram on Tuesday to celebrate the 33rd wedding anniversary of her parents, Prince Andrew, and Sarah Ferguson. Although the couple has been divorced for 23 years, they remain close friends and even live together at the Royal Lodge in Windsor.

“Who else has ever forgotten to congratulate their parents on their wedding anniversary!" Eugenie started in the caption of two photos from their wedding day on July 23, 1986. “I'm a day late but I wanted to celebrate my parents getting married 33 years ago...” she explained. And added:

“Thank you for always being the best of friends and bringing us up together.”

Eugenie tagged Prince Andrew and Sarah in the post and added the hashtag “wedding anniversary” at the end.

HAPPILY DIVORCED

Prince Andrew and Sarah, who are also parents to Princess Beatrice, grew up in the same circles and had met occasionally at polo events. They re-connected at Royal Ascot in 1985 and married after just one year of dating.

After welcoming both of their daughters, trouble started to arise for the couple, and they announced their split in 1992. However, their divorce was made official four years later.

The former couple has managed to keep a friendly relationship through the years, speaking fondly about each other and proudly dubbing themselves as “the happiest divorced couple in the world.”

That, and their living arrangement has caused the public to speculate they are back together and will get re-married anytime.

SETTING THE RECORD STRAIGHT

Aware of the rumors, Sarah released a statement through her spokesperson last March, which read:

“The Duke and Duchess remain good friends as they have been for many years, and nothing has changed.”

Speaking to Hello magazine a few years ago, Sarah talked about her family and explained their dynamic saying:

“A table goes best with four legs. A table can't stand on three legs, really, so you have the Duke and I, and the two girls. 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 together and communicate, the four of us."

She also talked about her role as a mom to Eugenie and Beatrice, saying: "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 that my girls show that."
