CAMILLA, Duchess of Cornwall, will snub Princess Eugenieâ€™s Royal Wedding because of her long-running feud with the bride-to-beâ€™s parents Sarah Ferguson and Prince Andrew, according to explosive royal claims.
Royal sources have even suggested the real reason for the duchess’ no show is because she would rather host a shooting party at her Scottish home.
But her apparent snub has sparked speculation of a royal rift between senior members of the royal family, at a time when the firm, especially the younger members, are riding a wave of popularity.
Sources close to the family say Camilla “hasn’t forgotten” that Prince Andrew failed to speak up as she and Charles struggled for acceptance of their relationship following the death of Princess Diana.
While Camilla and Princess Eugenie’s mother, Sarah Ferguson, have never seen eye to eye as the Duchess of York was close friends with Princess Diana.
A royal aide told the Daily Mail: “Camilla has always felt Andrew could have done more.
“The Queen listens to Andrew and he could have helped his brother at a time when he had few allies within the family.
“In fact, I would go so far as to say he was deeply unhelpful when support would have meant a huge amount to her and the Prince.
