Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson have both arrived separately in Aberdeen, fuelling rumours that they are spending a week with the Queen at Balmoral.

The divorced pair have stayed on good terms, however, recent speculation has suggested they have rekindled their romance.

Prince Andrew took a private jet on Tuesday and Fergie landed on a commercial jet on Thursday.

Prince Andrew has had quite the week already. Yesterday, he accidentally wished the wrong daughter happy birthday on Twitter.

Their daughters, Beatrice, 31 and Eugenie, 29, are expected to join them at Balmoral.

This isn’t the first time the former married couple have visited Balmoral since their divorce, however, this is deemed as more significant due to the rumours.

“The Queen wanted them there as a family and it’s very much her giving the private nod of approval.” A royal insider told The Sun.

“They went to great lengths to avoid being spotted together arriving.” The source added.

ITV’s royal editor Chris Ship revealed the couple were back together in April, but this was denied by the Duchess.

Fergie married Prince Andrew in 1986 and though they divorced in 1996 after being separated for four year, they have remained good friends since.

They live together in the Royal Lodge in Windsor.

A Buckingham Palace spokeswoman said: “The Duke of York’s travel to Scotland was paid for privately. Balmoral is The Queen’s private home so we wouldn’t comment on who may or may not be staying there.”

Fergie has retained a close relationship with her two daughters, although it has been through its fair share of rocky patches.

Recently, a friend of Princess Beatrice told The Express that she “cried for days” after Fergie was caught up in a sting operation by the News of the World.

She was secretly filmed by undercover reporter ‘Fake Sheikh’ Mazher Mahmood, agreeing to grant him access to Prince Andrew, in exchange for £500,000.

    2020 Vision Monday: Polls show a 17-point swing toward impeaching Trump, which could drag down his reelection bid

    As of three weeks ago, a majority of Americans — 51.1 percent, on average — opposed impeaching President Trump. As of today, opposition to impeachment has plummeted 7 percentage points (to 44 percent) and support has climbed nearly 10 points (to 49.8 percent), according to FiveThirtyEight's preliminary polling tracker. It still seems unlikely, although perhaps slightly less so, that Senate Republicans will ever abandon Trump and vote to remove him from office, even if most voters eventually want them to.

    Nigerian police rescue 67 from 'inhuman' conditions at Islamic 'school'

    Police in northern Nigeria rescued nearly 70 men and boys from a second purported Islamic school where they were shackled and subjected to "inhuman and degrading treatments." The raid in Katsina, the northwestern home state of President Muhammadu Buhari, came less than a month after about 300 men and boys were freed from another supposed Islamic school in neighboring Kaduna state where they were allegedly tortured and sexually abused. "In the course of investigation, sixty-seven persons from the ages of 7 to 40 years were found shackled with chains," Katsina police spokesman Sanusi Buba said in a statement.

    In Jamal Khashoggi's death, Saudi money is talking louder than murder

    Anyone interested in what it looks like to get away with murder should peruse the attendee list for Saudi Arabia's flashy "Davos in the Desert" this month. Vaporizing into the desert heat is all the righteous alarm that compelled leading financial firms to boycott the event last year out of concern that Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, weeks before, had ordered the grisly killing of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi. Attending this year's extravaganza are executives of JPMorgan Chase, Goldman Sachs and Citigroup, all of them institutions selected to underwrite the kingdom's highly anticipated, partial public offering of its oil company, Aramco, valued $1.5 trillion to $2 trillion.

    Climate change researchers recommend banning all frequent flyer reward programs to cut carbon emissions by targeting jet-setters

    A new report commissioned by the Committee on Climate Change, the UK government's official climate-change advisers, has called for a ban on all frequent flyer reward programs to discourage people from traveling by air so much. Researchers from Imperial College London, who wrote the report, said that just 15% of the entire British population take 70% of all flights from the country. The report also called for an "air miles levy" to punish people who fly long distances, which would target those who rack up the most air miles, rather than people who travel shorter distances.

    Russia denies US news report it bombed 4 Syria hospitals in 12 hours

    Russia on Monday denied a US newspaper report that its warplanes bombed four hospitals in rebel-held territory in Syria over a period of 12 hours this year. The Russian defence ministry rubbished the claim in a report by The New York Times, saying "the alleged 'evidence' provided by the NYT is not worth even the paper it was printed on". The May strikes -- which the newspaper tied to Moscow through Russian radio recordings, plane spotter logs and accounts by witnesses -- are part of a larger pattern of medical facilities targeted by forces supporting Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in the country's devastating civil war.

    The White House on Monday tried to distance itself from a violent parody video that shows President Trump shooting and stabbing critics and members of the media in a church. “But based upon everything he has heard, he strongly condemns this video,” Grisham tweeted. According to the New York Times, the crude video was shown at a pro-Trump conference at the president's Doral Miami resort over the weekend, where Donald Trump Jr. and former White House press secretary Sarah Sanders were among the guest speakers.

    When police misconduct occurs, records often stay secret. One mom's fight to change that.

    Furious about the way she was treated, she worked with other families whose relatives were killed by police to help push for the recent passage of California's new Senate Bill 1421, which as of January 1 overrides decades of precedent and requires police departments to open internal investigation records related to deadly force and police wrongdoing. The law could inspire reform at police departments across the nation at a time when the relationship between police and the public is fraught with tension following numerous fatal shootings, particularly involving victims of color.

    Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) is running for president again — at least in Anthony Scaramucci's dreams. The famously short-lived White House communications director has since turned on the president who appointed him, and has publicly said he's trying to knock President Trump off the 2020 ticket. Now, it seems Scaramucci has decided on his dream candidate, and has launched a website and line of T-shirts to persuade him to run.

    More than a dozen police killed in ambush in violent Mexican state

    Suspected cartel hitmen shot dead more than a dozen police in an ambush in the western Mexican state of Michoacan, authorities said on Monday, in one of the bloodiest attacks on security forces since President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador took office. The ministry for public security said the attack was carried out in the municipality of Aguililla in Michoacan, a state that has long been convulsed by turf wars between drug gangs, notably the Jalisco New Generation Cartel (CJNG) and its enemies. The federal public security ministry said 14 police were killed, though its Michoacan state counterpart reported that 13 officers were confirmed dead and three injured.

    India blocks SMS services in Kashmir after trucker killed

Separately Indian officials said that a 24-year-old woman died in the latest exchange of artillery fire with Pakistan over their de-facto border dividing the blood-soaked Himalayan region. Security sources said the decision to cut text messaging services was taken to reduce the ability of militants to communicate.

    Why Leaving Syria Is Necessary

    Key point: Americans cannot be expected to fight and die in Syria indefinitely. An explosion of criticism had erupted in Congress and the news media in response to President Trump's decision to withdraw a small contingent of U.S. troops stationed in northern Syria. Those forces served as a (mostly symbolic) barrier to Turkey's ambitions to conduct a military offensive against Syrian Kurdish forces there.

"Weather conditions in Japan up to now have been relatively moderate," said Toshitaka Katada, a disaster expert and professor at the University of Tokyo. Those days are over, and Japan's readiness for disasters, still based on data collected decades ago, hasn't kept up with the times, he said.

The Vatican said its police chief, Domenico Giani, bore no responsibility for the leaked flyer but resigned to avoid disrupting the investigation and "out of love for the church and faithfulness" to the pope. Giani, a 20-year veteran of the Vatican's security services, has stood by Francis' side and jogged alongside his popemobile during hundreds of public appearances and foreign trips.

    Son of sheriff who called immigrants ‘drunks’ at White House event arrested for public intoxication

    The son of a Texas sheriff who used a White House press conference to describe immigrant offenders as “drunks” likely to repeatedly break the law has been arrested for public intoxication. Sergei Waybourn, 24, faces a count of indecent exposure as well as public drunkenness just days after his father, Tarrant County Sheriff Bill Waybourn, was criticised for the comments. Responding to a California court ruling that banned immigration officers from arresting people on the basis of records that have been proven unreliable, Sheriff Waybourn said 7% of his 4,200 inmates were “illegal aliens”.
