THE JUDGES' EYES WERE ON PRINCESSES Beatrice, 5, and Eugenie, 4, as the two made their equestrian debut at the Royal Windsor Horse Show on May 14. But the real show was on the sidelines, where the girls' parents, the Duke and Duchess of York, cheered on the kids and cozied up to each other. Though the two have been separated for 26 months, "their glances gave the impression they had never been closer," noted the Mail on Sunday, fueling yet another round of reconciliation rumors.

The pair had already been spotted having an intimate candlelit dinner the month before. Then, a week after the horse show, Andrew invited Fergie to a cocktail party aboard his ship, HMS Cottesmore, before dinner and dancing. Last week the couple packed up the girls for a week at Balmoral. So are they getting back together? Nobody knows. Says royal author Brian Hoey: "Nothing surprises me anymore about that family."
