Sarah Ferguson has wowed royal fans after announcing her plans to read a book called ‘Love You Forever’ on what would have been her 34th wedding anniversary to Prince Andrew.
The Duchess of York, 60, has been sharing videos filmed from her home during lockdown for her series Story Time With Fergie and Friends, which she shares on YouTube.
After Fergie announced today’s book would be Robert Munsch’s Love You Forever on Instagram, royal fans couldn’t help but comment on the choice, with one posting a winky face and writing: ‘Fitting book for this date.’
Today would have marked Fergie’s 34th wedding anniversary to Prince Andrew, with the former couple marrying at Westminster Abbey on 23 July 1986.
Fergie has been very dedicated to her channel since the start of the coronavirus pandemic, sharing a video every day with her YouTube followers.
Announcing her choice of book today, she shared a snap on Instagram, writing: ‘Today at 4pm on Fergie and Friends I am going to be reading Love You Forever by Robert Munsch and my guest friend is @jonathanbremner.’
Fans appeared delighted with her choice of book, with one commenting: ‘Ooooh that book.’
Another posted a crying emoji alongside several hearts, writing: ‘Love your story time.’
One added: ‘Love that book,’ while a fourth commented: ‘Can’t wait, we love storytime.’
The former couple married in July 1986 in Westminster Abbey, before going on to split six years later and divorcing in 1996.
She still lives with him in an unusual domestic arrangement at Royal Lodge in Windsor, and has never dismissed rumours they may remarry.
The Duke and Duchess have stayed ‘best friends’ for their two daughters Princess Eugenie, 30, and Princess Beatrice, 31, and spent lockdown together.
Their wedding anniversary comes days after the couple watched their eldest daughter Princess Beatrice, 31, tie the knot to Italian beau Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi at the Royal Chapel of All Saints at Royal Lodge on Friday.
Beatrice’s wedding was initially due to take place on May 29, but had to be postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
She eventually decided to have an intimate ceremony in front of 20 close ones, which included her mother Sarah, father Prince Andrew, grandmother the Queen and grandfather the Duke of Edinburgh.
Royal expert Jennie Bond said it was a ‘sign of Sarah’s unwavering loyalty to Prince Andrew’ that she stayed out of the pictures released to the public.
Earlier this year, royal expert Robert Jobson told FEMAIL that Fergie and Andrew relied on one another for support.
Speaking about their close connection, he explained: ‘Sarah has been a rock for Andrew at this time.
‘She is his number one supporter and at this tricky time for him she has been somebody he could turn to.
‘They have remained very good friends whilst they raise their children and her continued support of her ex husband shows what a mature relationship and good appreciation of each other they have.’
