“Perhaps [Prince] Andrew and Sarah [Ferguson] because Sarah had famously been not invited to spend Christmas there when her daughters and ex-husband was there.”

This special treatment could have possibly annoyed other members of the family.

Meanwhile, the couple will discuss their decision in an upcoming interview with Oprah Winfrey.
