Sarah “Fergie” Ferguson is done with her expat relatives’ wishy-washy behavior: “You’re either in or out.”

While the Duchess of York didn’t name names in her interview with The Independent, she did accuse former working royals of playing “the fence” following their exit from the Palace.

“Well, you can’t have it both ways,” Ferguson told the outlet. While Ferguson didn’t clarify who “you” is in reference of, it’s not lost on fans that her nephew is Prince Harry, who has turned the monarchy on its head with his estrangement from the royal family, explosive docuseries, and tell-all memoir.

“You can’t sit on the fence and keep one foot in and one foot out,” the duchess continued. “You’re either in or out.”

Ferguson knows first-hand what it’s like to step away from the Palace. She married Prince AndrewKing Charles’s brother, in 1986. They welcomed Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie before divorcing in 1996.

Though Ferguson didn’t shun herself (or daughters) from her affluent in-laws, she did decide to forgo Her Royal Highness title after their split. She went on to pursue a career writing children’s books in the US, she became a Weight Watchers ambassador, and even had a brief stint in acting.

“It was my decision,” she told The Independent. “If I’m going to go, then go.”

Just last month, Ferguson praised Harry for seemingly doing the same. She claimed his mother, Princess Diana, “would be incredibly proud” of his family. Ferguson also went out of her way to say, “I have no judgment on the Sussexes.”

Now, however, Ferguson is seemingly accusing the Sussexes of having their cake and eating it too.

“But then don’t cry about not being invited to weddings. You chose to leave, now go and live it – and be it,” she said.

It’s assumed that Ferguson will be attending King Charles’s Coronation Weekend as the two have remained on pleasant terms. Her possible reunion with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will have fans dialed in.
