Who is John Bryan and when was he pictured with Sarah Ferguson? | The Sun

THE QUEEN’S youngest son Prince Andrew separated from wife and mother of his two daughters Sarah Ferguson in March 1992. 

However, just five months later the relationship was rocked with scandal when Fergie was pictured in some compromising snaps with Texan millionaire John Bryan.

When the photographs were published, Sarah was staying at Balmoral Castle in Scotland with the rest of the royal family. 

Royal writer Richard Kay claimed in the Daily Mail that Princess Diana messaged him the night before the pictures leaked saying: "The redhead's in trouble."

Who is John Bryan?

Sarah’s fling was with American businessman and “financial advisor” John Bryan, and the pair were said to have met through mutual friends.

Not much is known about the liaison, other than the fact they enjoyed a romantic break together in Saint Tropez, along with Sarah's daughters Beatrice and Eugenie.
