Queen Elizabeth news: Socialite ‘furious’ at Prince Andrew & Fergie over new £5m house after ‘owing her millions’

A SOCIALITE that Prince Andrew “owed millions” to has spoken of her outrage after Fergie spent over £5million on a new house in Mayfair.

Former pal Isabelle de Rouvre,, 74, sold a Swiss ski chalet to the Duke of York and his ex-wife Sarah Ferguson, in 2014 for £18million.

While the agreement was that the house would be paid for in installments, Ms de Rouvre claims the Yorks were unable to meet a deadline for repayment.

And although she was owed £6.8 million, she agreed to £3.4 million, in part because she believed the Yorks were having financial issues.

Speaking to the Sunday Times, the socialite claims she didn’t vehemently pursue the Royal couple for the full payment due to Andrew’s legal battle with Jeffrey Epstein survivor Virginia Guiffre.

The millionaire thought the couple didn’t have money and that Andrew “would be going to prison in America so I thought it best to get what I could”, de Rouvre said.

She added: “I am outraged that I am now told she has spent millions on another property. It is just incredible and the whole story unbelievable. It is a dirty story as far as I am concerned.”

The Duke of York has always strongly denied all allegations made against him.

  • Socialite fuming over unpaid royal debt

    The chalet in the Swiss ski resort of Verbier was sold to the Yorks for £18million.

    Due to a lack of cash, the seller, Isabelle de Rouvre, agreed for the pair to pay her in cash instalments of £5 million with interest.

    Speaking to the Sunday Times, de Rouvre, 74, described the experience as a “dirty story” and explained that when Prince Andrew and Fergie failed to meet the bill, she was forced to take legal action.

    She said that though she was owed £6.8 million, she agreed to £3.4 million, in part because she believed the Yorks were having financial issues.

    She also thought Prince Andrew might be going to prison due to the accusations brought against him by Virginia Giuffre stating that he raped her when she was 17.

    de Rouvre explained: “I understood they didn’t have the money and believed he would be going to prison in America so I thought it best to get what I could.

    “I am outraged that I am now told [Sarah Ferguson] has spent millions on another property. It is just incredible and the whole story unbelievable. It is a dirty story as far as I am concerned.”

    “It’s spending quality time with your children. It’s not whether you’ve done every single drop-off and every single pick-up. 

    “But actually, it’s those quality moments that you spend with your child where you are properly listening to them, properly understanding what they feel and if things are going wrong, really taking time to think: ‘How as a mother am I feeling? Am I actually making the situation worse for my child because this is bringing up all sorts of things I feel, rather than just focusing on them and how they might be reacting or responding to certain situations?’”
