Duchess of York ‘besotted’ with Manuel Fernandez
Britain’s Duchess of York is “besotted” with Manuel Fernandez.
Sarah Ferguson, 55, took the 47-year-old internet entrepreneur to a motor race at London’s Battersea Park, where she was presenting the trophy yesterday (28.06.15), along with her daughter Princess Beatrice, and had spent the evening at a party in Sussex together too.
The Duchess – who lives at Royal Lodge in Windsor with her former husband and father of her children Prince Andrew – met Manuel 18 months ago, and, according to the Mail Online, he has stayed more than once with Fergie at the £13million Swiss ski chalet she recently bought with Andrew.
However, friends have insisted Fergie and Manuel – who has devoted his life to campaigning against domestic violence following the brutal murder of his 50-year-old sister Maria in 2008 – are “just good friends”.
Meanwhile, Princess Beatrice is also coy when it comes to her love life.
She has been dating her boyfriend Dave Clark for over seven years and finds it “difficult” when people ask her questions about him.
A family friend previously said: “[Beatrice is] very steely under everything – she is a strong character but a little bit more sensitive.
“[The questions] must be difficult for her”.
