Sarah Ferguson recalls Princess Diana’s wise words to her throughout her royal trials.
SARAH FERGUSON has spoken up about Princess Diana’s wise guidance to her during her time as a member of the Royal Family.
Even before they married into the Royal Family, the Duchess of York and the late Princess of Wales were close friends. Both women, however, battled during their time at the Firm and eventually divorced their husbands, Prince Charles and Prince Andrew.
Fergie has now disclosed the counsel Diana provided her when she was dealing with her mental health issues.
“Diana and I both had our own mental health concerns, and we used to talk,” she told People Magazine.
“She added, ‘Fergie, remember one thing: It’s so easy to tumble off the pedestal when you’re at the top.’ And now you’ve reached the bottom. ‘All you have to do is climb up.’
“We were positioned as saint and sinner,” the Duchess added.
“And the most essential thing was to stay strong together, which we did, regardless of what anyone said.”
She also shot down rumors that the two ladies were feuding, saying they “promised” to be there for one another.
“We told each other we’d always be together – there was never any daylight between us,” Fergie said.
“However, because we were so powerful together, everyone wanted [to witness a feud].”
“Someone wants to rip something apart.”
Diana would have been “extremely proud” of her boys, Prince William and Prince Harry, according to the Duchess of York.
She went on to say, “And she would be infatuated with her grandchildren, just like me.”
“Because that’s what she wanted… this would be her paradise.
“I know she would say right now, if she were sitting next to me, ‘I am so proud of both of my boys and the great women they have picked.’
“Because everyone has their own unique voice.”
Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson divorced in 1992 and were officially divorced in 1996, but their divorce was amicable.
The Duchess of York was compelled to rent a number of homes after leaving Sunninghill Park, where she had lived with her husband, following their divorce.
Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice, who were four and two years old at the time, allegedly suffered “long-lasting” ramifications as a result of their divorce, according to royal biographer Tom Quinn.
“Beatrice and Eugenie had a very unusual childhood, where their parents, on the face of it, remained friends,” Mr Quinn said of the Duke and Duchess of York’s divorce.Brinkwire Summary News”.
