SARAH FERGUSON’s unprecedented public speech that broke with protocol concerning royal wives may have gone down well with the audience, but ended up landing in her a lot of trouble, according to commentators.

Biographer Ingrid Seward told viewers: “When Fergie and Andrew first went to America, they were in Los Angeles.

“I was there, I was part of the press crew there.

“I just remember that they were at this very big conference.

“Andrew was giving a speech and then Fergie got up and gave a little speech.”

Royal author Tom Quinn added: “I know, against advice, Sarah wanted to make a speech.

“The wives of royals wouldn’t normally do, it’s breaking with protocol, but she insisted.

In footage of the event, the Duchess is heckled by a man shouting “we love you”.

Fergie appears surprised and shoots back: “I’ll see you later.”

Daily Mail Editor-at-Large Richard Kay gave more insight: “The worm has turned somewhat by then.

“Fergie was not enjoying the same flattering headlines that she’d had in the early years of the marriage.

“Her father was the only one who stood up for her.

“It was one of the things that upset her at the time.

“The monarchy, the institution, were not defending her from, what she considered to be, unfair attacks in the press.”
