The Queen’s “special treatment” for Meghan Markle may have irritated Fergie.
A royal expert stated in a documentary that Meghan Markle’s “special treatment” may have “irritated” other members of the Royal Family, such as Sarah Ferguson.
This weekend, a documentary on 61-year-old Sarah’s life in the Royal Family will air, revealing how her marriage to the Queen’s second son, Prince Andrew, ended in divorce. Last year, Meghan, who turned 40 on Wednesday, and her husband, Prince Harry, 36, abruptly left their royal roles.

In a rare in-depth interview with the Daily Mail in 2018, Sarah discussed her experiences of spending Christmas alone.
Before checking the news to meet Beatrice and Eugenie at Sandringham, the Duchess announced she will watch the 1959 drama classic ‘Ben-Hur.’
“I’m going to watch Ben-Hur and really enjoy it, then I’m going to follow the news and see how the girls are doing,” she said. “I know Her Majesty adores my daughters, so I’m pleased to share them — both in August and at Christmas.” Sandringham is a. “Brinkwire News in Condensed Form.”
