Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York, and Prince Andrew got married on July 23, 1986. The couple divorced on May 30, 1996, but have remained close ever since, so it's perhaps unsurprising that their wedding anniversary was celebrated by their daughter, Princess Eugenie, on Instagram.
They wrote, "Late post, but it's been 33 years since the wedding of Prince Andrew and Fergie in 1986. And so here's Queen Elizabeth running after little Prince William to stop him from getting closer to the carriage. Her Majesty as a grandma is cute":
