Sarah Ferguson has finally revealed the inner workings of her living arrangement with her ex-husband Prince Andrew, and lifted the lid on how they successfully co-parent together.

The 61-year-old married Andrew in a lavish ceremony in Westminster Abbey in 1986 but, due to conflicts in their schedules which meant they spent little time together, they split in 1991.

In a piece for the Sunday Times, she revealed how the divorced couple co-parent daughters Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, and her decision to remain living at Royal Lodge in Windsor with Andrew.

"I travel a lot and I’ve always been able to make wherever I am home," she said. "If I am staying in a hotel I have the same family photographs and scented candles around me.

"When I’m in the UK I’m lucky enough to stay at Royal Lodge. I wouldn’t call it my home as that would be presumptuous.

"We are very good co-parents together."

In a recent interview with US TV show Good Morning America, she went to describe her ex-husband as a "great man" and described their wedding day as "the best day of [her] life."

"I would do it all over again because he was a very good-looking sailor, but I fell in love with him and I think love conquers all," she said.

In her Sunday Times piece, she also wrote about her mental health and the arrival of her first grandchild, August, in February this year.

She is due to become a grandmother for a second time when Princess Beatrice gives birth this autumn.

She wrote that August, the first child of Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank, "loves her energy" and enjoys watching her play dress up in her hats.

She previously told PEOPLE that she is "so proud" of her daughter and son-in-law as parents.

"When little August comes in to see me, I firstly look at my wonderful and beautiful daughter Eugenie and Jack," she said.

"I am so proud of them as parents. I've known Jack for 10-12 years now, so he's like my son, he is my son-in-law, but he's like my son.

"I adore them both. To see Eugenie and Jack being beautiful parents of little August, I'm really proud."

She went on to explain how she has a therapist and relies on her family and friends and work to "keep her focused on what's important" amid her struggles with her mental health.

She added that she sometimes finds things difficult because she is so sensitive, which was evident when she was snubbed from Prince William and Kate's wedding at Westminster Abbey in 2011.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge invited nearly 2,000 guests to the ceremony but Sarah was left off the list.

"I was not invited, and I chose to go and be in Thailand in a place called Camelia," she told Oprah in an interview.

"It was so difficult. I wanted to be there with my girls, and to be getting them dressed and to go as a family.

"And also, it was so hard because the last bride up that aisle was me."

Recently, she also spoke on Good Morning America about Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle, who left the UK for a life in the US last year.

"I wish Harry and Meghan so much happiness and I know that Diana would be so proud of her sons and their wives," she said.

"I loved Diana and I will always love her even if she isn’t here in person. It’s a really lovely thing to have."
