Ferguson was spotted just a few days ago inspecting tributes left for the Queen alongside ex-husband Prince Andrew.

The 62-year-old Duchess snapped a shot of the large floral tribute left out for the Queen, who she is said to have had a close and long-lasting friendship with even after her divorce from the Duke of York.

The Duke and Duchess of York had travelled from their Royal Lodge to Windsor Estate to inspect the tributes left by well-wishers of the family.

Ferguson had paid tribute to the Queen, describing her as "incredible" and that the long-reigning Monarch "leaves behind an extraordinary legacy".
