Sarah Ferguson - not just mother to our two favourite princesses Beatrice and Eugenie but a soon-to-be filmmaker, it seems.

The Duchess of York is set to make a movie about Prince Albert - with The Queen's blessing - and rumoured to be inviting Downton Abbey creator Julian Fellowes to write the screenplay.

This would not be the first time the pair worked together on a project for the silver screen. Fellowes wrote the script for 2009 movie Young Victoria which the Duchess produced.

However, nothing is set in stone as yet. A spokesman for the royal revealed to the Daily Express: "It's very early days but she does want to make another film, this time based on Albert, and she would like to ask Julian to come on board."

Despite being busy, Fellowes is also keen, saying to the paper: "I'm up to my eyes in other things, like Downton and the Wind In The Willows, but I would love to write a follow up to Young Victoria, although I haven't been approached yet."

So, does documenting the life Prince Albert signify Duchess Sarah and Prince Andrew are indeed becoming close again? According to senior royal aide, no. "It would finish Prince Philip off, they said.
