The Duke of York and Sarah Ferguson, who divorced 22 years ago, have long been surrounded by claims they are secretly back in a relationship.
Daily Star Online had previously reported how ITV News’ royal editor dropped the bombshell the pair were “unofficially back together”.
Chris Ship revealed Fergie had flown to Bahrain with Andrew as his “partner”, where they stayed together earlier this year on a private visit.
It came after Fergie broke her silence on her and Andrew’s life together, describing it as “our fairytale” and “the greatest ever”.
But now, Daily Star Online can reveal the Queen would not have to give consent to her marrying Prince Andrew again thanks to Prince Louis.
The Royal Marriage Act 1772 states that the first six people in line to the British throne can’t get married without permission from the monarch.
Until recently, the pair would have needed to ask the Queen for approval again before they could get remarried.
But, when Prince Louis was born in April 2018, Prince Andrew was bumped off the top six in line to the throne – meaning he would no longer need to get his mum’s permission to retie the knot with Fergie.
And since Prince Harry’s son Archie was born in May this year, Andrew has now slid down the list to eighth in line.
Fergie and Prince Andrew have sparked speculation they are back together after they were recently spotted at the Royal Ascot and pictured arriving at the wedding of Lady Gabriella Windsor together.
But gushing fans have been stopped in their tracks by a royal expert who told Daily Star Online Fergie was a “disaster as a royal” and the pair should absolutely not get back together.
The claims come 27 years after Andrew and Fergie divorced.
The pair announced their separation in March 1992, six years after they got married.
Five months later, the Duchess was embroiled in arguably the Royal family’s biggest ever scandal when compromising photographs with her “financial advisor”, taken at her holiday villa in St Tropez, were published.
