Royal WARS: How Sarah Ferguson was REJECTED by ‘goody two shoes’ Princess Diana
SARAH Ferguson was determined she would “never be like” Princess Diana, a documentary has sensationally claimed.
Sarah Ferguson became a member of the royal family five years after Princess Diana when she wed Prince Andrew in 1986. Diana had wed Prince Charles in 1981 in a grand ceremony at St Paul’s Cathedral. At the time, Fergie and Diana were in a similar position, having just been launched into the spotlight while attempting to come to terms with their new lives.
While Fergie and Diana shared many similarities during their time married to the Prince’s, the Duchess of York “would never be like Diana”, a royal documentary revealed.
According to “Diana and Sarah: Royal Wives of Windsor”, Princess Eugenie and Princes Beatrice’s mother was proud to show the differences between herself and Prince Charles’ wife, and would even refer to Diana as “goody two shoes”.
After marrying into the royal family, Fergie’s behaviour in public was often labelled as “unconventional” and “familiar”.
However, the Duchess was determined to survive the “icy disapproval of Buckingham Palace”, the documentary claims.
Fergie’s confidence to “handle the situation and go ya-hoo at the establishment” is said to have been shown mostly through the way she dressed.
The former royal would often wear bare legs with short skirts while wearing a confident smile on her face.
Fergie would also often interact with the press, something which was frowned upon.
In footage from her time married to Prince Andrew, Fergie can be seen chatting to a photographer, asking him how he was.
This – as the documentary claims – is something Diana would have never done.
