Royal Wedding News - Sarah Ferguson, Duchess Of York

Royal Wedding News – Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York

On April 29 the world watched as Prince William of Wales second in line to the throne married his love of 9 years, Kate Middleton, becoming the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. All the who’s who of Britain and Royalty around the world were among the 1900 guests gathered at the Westminster Abbey. But there was someone missing. The fiery haired former duchess of York, Sarah Ferguson.

Just a week and a half after the royal wedding Sarah Ferguson did an interview with Oprah. There were rumors flying around about Sarah’s wedding invitation. That she was not invited; and that she was invited but she refused to attend.

Truth is, as the ex-wife of Prince Andrew, she was not invited. Even if she was invited she could not have been seated with her daughters, Beatrice and Eugenie or Prince Andrew, because she is divorced from the royal family. If she was invited, she would have had to sit near the back of the church by herself.

Sarah spent Will and Kate’s wedding at a resort in Thailand with no TV or radio. In the end she did call a friend and listen to the wedding over the phone. She talked to Prince Andrew on the morning of the wedding and he reminded her how perfect “their” wedding was. He carried a picture of Sarah in his pocket, it was his way of taking her to the wedding.

Realizing that she and Andrew were the last Royals to be married in Westminster Abbey, Sarah admits that “she had it all and she blew it”. Married on July 23, 1986, they separated in 1992 and divorced in 1996. She rode in the same carriage and appeared on the same balcony, waving to the crowd below.

Fergie, as she is known, wishes Will and Kate all the best, and hopes that the press does not hound them as they did Princess Diana, William’s deceased mother and herself.

Sarah lives with her daughters in the same house as Prince Andrew, although they rarely see each other since they both travel a lot. Sarah says that it is a lot like their marriage was. When she was married to Prince Andrew she lived in the castle with the queen, but only saw Andrew about 40 days a year because of his work in the armed forces.

Sarah feels that both she and Diana were at the wedding in spirit. Sarah was best friends with Princess Diana since she was fourteen years old. Diana was the one who introduced her to Prince Andrew, and after their marriage, Diana had a friend and confidant in the royal family.

Sarah will be doing a series on Oprah’s OWN network called “Finding Sarah” from Royalty to real life. This show will show how Sarah made the transition from being a royal with 4 ladies-in-waiting to real life where she no longer has a staff and has to learn to do domestic things, and finding herself in the process.
