The Duchess of York joined the team at Good Morning Britain this week to talk about her charity work for Street Child and her visit to Nepal to help disadvantaged children. She also reflected on being able to attend Prince Harry’s wedding after missing Prince William’s.
Prince Andrew’s ex-wife, Srah Ferguson, was not invited to Prince William’s wedding, and the host Piers Morgan, said that he thought this was “completely wrong”. He also said of her appearance at Prince Harry’s wedding in May that she was “back where she belonged”.
He said: “Let me ask you, there was a moment, I want to show this moment to viewers at the Harry and Meghan wedding. Where you stepped out of the car, to arrive and everyone went nuts with joy at seeing you. And it was sort of, it was like your comeback moment to the firm. And that was the way it was portrayed. And I felt so sort of heart warmed for you watching it. That there you were, back where you belonged.”
Fergie replied: “Thank you. It is kind of you to say that, it was nerve-racking. And I was glad I didn’t trip over with those high-heeled shoes on. But, as you can see, the minute I started to walk, I was thinking of Diana in my heart. And I was thinking of my mum. And my father would say ‘the show goes on, get on with it’. He always taught me to walk tall. And as I came round the corner which made me cry was the kind people that had been so lovely. Plus, Jack was standing there and he came towards me with open arms.”
She added: “I felt that I was really happy for my friend Diana, and my mum and dad. And I felt very honored and grateful to Harry and Meghan for inviting me, that is a big point.”
The host insisted of highlighting how wrong it was she didn’t receive an invitation for William’s wedding. “It was a huge thing because you weren’t at William’s wedding, and I felt that was completely wrong,” he said.
The Duchess just said that it was “very kind” of Prince Harry and the Duchess of Sussex to invite her to the wedding.
Fergie spoke about how proud Diana would have been of her two boys and their wives. “She’d really just be so proud,” Sarah Ferguson said of Diana. “Even before they got married, Diana would have been literally going, ‘I can’t believe these boys have done so well.’ They are such a credit to her.”
“I honestly think she would be so proud of the wonderful Meghan and Catherine as well,” the 59-year-old Duchess said. “She’d want to embrace them and say, ‘You’re doing well.’”
