THE Duke of York even slept with teddies and stuffed toys during his marriage, UK Times can reveal.
Andrew covered the bed he shared with Sarah Ferguson at Buckingham Palace with bears.
The couple lived together in private apartments after their wedding in 1986.
Royal expert Ingrid Seward revealed how she and Sarah roared with laughter after she mistook the teddy collection for Fergie’s childhood keepsakes.
Ingrid described how she visited Fergie at the Palace while writing a biography in 1990.
She recalled: “She showed me to their bedroom and there were around a dozen teddy bears on the marital bed.
“I said to her, ‘Oh Fergie, you haven’t still got your old teddies have you?
“And she said, ‘No they are all Andrew’s’. We found it very funny and fell about laughing.”
