Sarah Ferguson says Princess Diana would split time between Santa Barbara and London | Royal | News

Sarah, also known by royal fans and her friends as Fergie, spoke about the late Princess Diana in a wide-ranging interview. The Duchess of York believes the late Princess of Wales would be proud of both her sons despite fallout in recent years.

She told the Sun: “I think first and foremost she’d be hugging her grandchildren and so proud of both her sons and their wives.”

Princess Diana, Sarah continued, would strive to remain close to both Prince William and Prince Harry even after the Sussexes left the UK for California.

She said: “She’d be travelling between Santa Barbara and Kensington Palace.

“She would also be championing her causes when it came to children’s charities.”

The death of Diana, Fergie also said, came too soon and wasted her immense potential.

The Duchess of York said: “If she can be such an iconic and inspirational figure having passed away so dreadfully young, imagine what more she could have achieved had she lived.”

Princess Diana died in 1997 in a car crash in Paris.

Prince William and Prince Harry put their differences aside last month to mark her 60th birthday and unveil a statue they commissioned.

This isn’t the first time the Duchess of York has spoken about Princess Diana and her sons in recent weeks.

In an interview with the Telegraph Magazine, Sarah touched upon Prince Harry and Meghan’s new life in California, saying her only advice for the couple would be to “be happy”.

Fergie, who was also interviewed by Oprah Winfrey, refused to say what she had made of Harry and Meghan’s two-hour-long chat with the US journalist.

However, she said: “All I want to say on this is that Oprah helped me greatly when I went to the US and was interviewed by her.


“I’m a great supporter of Oprah and everything that she does.”

Fergie spoke to Ms Winfrey in 1996, after her divorce from Prince Andrew, and famously said royal life “was not a fairytale”.

During the Telegraph interview, the Duchess also commented on Meghan’s debut as a children’s book author, being one herself.

She said: “I think it’s wonderful that Meghan has written a children’s book; having done that myself, I know the effort it takes.

“I did have to make my own way in the world when I left the family, and it is not always easy”.

Fergie met Meghan before her wedding to Prince Harry and even helped her learn how to curtsy, as recalled during the Sussexes’ interview with Ms Winfrey by the Duchess of Sussex.

The Duchess of York was among the 800 guests at St George’s Chapel on Meghan and Harry’s wedding day in 2018.

However, she had not been invited by Kate and Prince William on their big day in April 2011.

In an interview with Town & Country magazine, Fergie recalled being excluded from the guest list while her daughters Eugenie and Beatrice and former husband Prince Andrew were all in attendance.

She said: “I didn’t think I was probably worthy to go to their wedding.

“I took myself to Thailand, actually, to be far away from it so that I could try and heal.”
