Prince Andrew’s ex-wife, Sarah Ferguson, has known Queen Elizabeth for decades. Now she revealed what she used to call her mother-in-law. It’s a very idiosyncratic nickname.
London – The Duchess of York is always good for a surprise. Sarah Ferguson (62), who has been married to Prince Andrew (62) for decades and has known Queen Elizabeth II (96, † 2022) since 1980, has now revealed that she was still close to her even after Andrew divorced in 1996 and that she was very special Nicknames for the monarch.
Ferguson summarized her great respect for the regent in a few words
Fergie attended the event to promote her debut novel, Her Heart for a Compass, a coming-of-age story about her ancestor in Victorian England. “I’ve known the boss all my life and there’s no one like her,” Fergie said at the festival, according to The Telegraph . “I would never have done anything without the blessing of the boss (Sarah Ferguson says ‘the boss’ in English),” she said. You still think about it today.
According to the magazine, when asked if any women had inspired her characters in historical fiction, Fergie immediately named the late monarch. “No question, my mother-in-law,” the author and mother of two was able to quickly commit to.
Sarah Ferguson and the Queen’s Corgis
Apparently Sarah Ferguson found the corgis, which Prince Andrew then brought to his mother as a gift. “The Corgis will return and live with the Duke and Duchess at Royal Lodge. It was the Duchess who found the puppies given to Her Majesty by the Duke,” a source close to the Duke confirmed to people.com .
Despite their divorce, relations with both Andrew and the Queen remain good
She had said goodbye to Elizabeth II in an emotional post, giving an insight into her relationship with the regent. “To me, she was the most incredible mother-in-law and friend,” she continued. “I will always be grateful to her for the generosity she showed me after my divorce. I will miss her more than words can express.”
How good the relationship is can also be seen from the fact that the Queen’s beloved corgis stayed with the Duchess of York after her death. Fergie and Andrew have remained close over the years and despite their divorce and despite the year-long Andrews abuse scandal that ended in a settlement, they still live together at the Royal Lodge in Windsor.
