SARAH Ferguson has broken her silence after it was revealed she has not been invited to the King’s Coronation.
Despite knowing Charles since childhood, the Duchess of York, 63, is not among the 2,000 guest invited.
She is expected to watch the event on TV at Royal Lodge, which she shares with disgraced ex Prince Andrew.
Yesterday, Fergie spoke out for the first time since the guestlist was revealed on Thursday.
She posted a tweet with a link to a fundraiser by a friend of hers who has motor neurone disease.
It reads: “This is my friend John Chart’s last trek. John, who suffers from #MotorNeuroneDisease, climbs Everest to raise awareness about MND and how more research is needed. Support John by donating to help find a cure & share.”
She also shared snaps of the pal who is trying to reach Camp 1 on Everest to raise awareness of MND.
Hours later she was photographed looking less than impressed in a Range Rover with Andrew.
It comes as the coronation snub has puzzled insiders given she was at the Queen’s funeral in September, and spent her first Christmas in 30 years with the royals at Sandringham.
Her and Andrew’s daughters, princesses Eugenie, 33, and Beatrice, 34, are expected to be at the Westminster Abbey ceremony on May 6.
Royal author Phil Dampier said: “I’m sure Fergie will be disappointed but she has had many years of ups and downs in her relationship with the Royal Family, and I’m sure she will accept it.
“The Queen had a soft spot for Fergie and Charles was generous in inviting her to Christmas. But on a formal occasion he probably feels a line has to be drawn.
“Space is limited and some hard decisions have had to be made.
“The fact is Fergie and Prince Andrew split up more than 30 years ago so she cannot expect to be at the top of the royal pecking order.”
Fergie claims to have known Charles and Camilla as a child and mixed in royal circles before meeting Andrew and marrying in 1986.
The couple separated and in 1992 photos emerged of Fergie having her toes kissed by her financial adviser John Bryan.
Outraged Prince Philip banished her from Balmoral and Sandringham whenever he was present and she finally divorced in 1996.
Last month, after the Palace revealed the design of the Coronation invites, Fergie confessed she did not expect to be a guest.
In comments which could also have been aimed at Harry and Meghan, she said: “You can’t sit on the fence and keep one foot in and one out.
“Don’t cry about not being invited to weddings. You chose to leave, now go and live it — and be it.”
Sarah moved into Royal Lodge with Andrew ten years after their divorce. And in 2010 he bailed her out paying off £1.5million debts.
