Just because they're royal doesn't mean the royal family don't have their share of problems or behind-the-scenes family politics.
And with two big weddings this year and two royal babies on the way there is going to be a lot of family get-togethers including.
One of those big weddings is Princess Eugenie's impending nuptials to boyfriend of seven years Jack Brooksbank.
While her mother Sarah 'Fergie' Ferguson has stayed on good terms with ex-husband Prince Andrew, the same can't be said for the rest of the royal family.
There is one person in particular Fergie may want to steer clear of at the wedding to avoid an awkward encounter and that person is Prince Philip.

"Philip has been unable to forgive Fergie for the damage he perceives she did to the family via her series of extramarital affairs and subsequent commercial work," according to a recent report from the Daily Beast.
While the 58-year-old will, of course, be present at her daughter's royal wedding in the Autumn, she was snubbed from Prince William and Kate Middleton's wedding in 2011.
Let's hope family politics can be swept under the rug for Eugenie's wedding.
However, there may be another awkward encounter at their autumnal nuptials but for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
Harry's ex-girlfriend Cressida Bonas is a potential choice to be one of Eugenie's bridesmaids.
The former couple were introduced by the newly-engaged princess back in 2012 and dated for two years until parting ways in April 2014.
