SARAH FERGUSON has shared an insight into the childhood soft toys that were played with by her daughters Princess Eugenie and Beatrice.

In a picture published on social media, the Duchess of York displayed four cuddly toys as she posed in her conservatory holding up the book, Oi Frog, by Kes Gray. The toys included a crowned frog, puffin, a cat and lion.

In another image, Sarah shows off a number of teddies including a smiling mushroom and a unicorn.

During coronavirus lockdown, Sarah has shared images on Instagram with a children’s book which she reads on her YouTube channel, Storytime with Fergie and Friends.

Sarah and Prince Andrew continue to live in Royal Lodge in Windsor having remained on good terms since their divorce.

Their two children grew up in the estate.

During the pandemic, Eugenie and her husband, Jack Brooksbank, isolated in Royal Lodge, while Beatrice stayed with her fiancé Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi.

The couple, who had to reschedule their wedding due to the pandemic, were residing at his mother’s home in Chipping Norton.

While speaking on Darlton Harris’ podcast, City Island Podcast, in May, Sarah opened up about the lockdown experience.

She said: “During this lockdown period, I’ve really loved spending more time with Eugenie and Jack.

“My daughter got married to Jack in, oh goodness, was it last October? No, it was October before, heavens!

“And so, of course once she’s gone to get married they live away.

“So, I haven’t seen her so much and so now it’s been a total joy to spend real quality time with her.

“And, first time in 30 years, I even baked a lemon drizzle cake with her, so the first thing is that it’s fantastic.”

She opened up about not seeing her eldest daughter during the lockdown period but said their family is no different than everyone else’s.

Sarah continued: “It’s sad for me that Beatrice, she was going to get married next week, but they postponed the wedding.

“Edo and Beatrice have been living with her future mother-in-law who is lovely.

“Great friend of mine.

“But I’m missing my other daughter but it’s just like everybody else, we are just the same family as everybody else.”

Although UK lockdown restrictions are beginning to ease, but it is not yet known when Beatrice and Edoardo will be rescheduling their wedding for.

A spokesperson for Beatrice and Edoardo told People in April: “There are no plans to switch venues or hold a bigger wedding.

“They aren’t even thinking about their wedding at this time. There will come a time to rearrange, but that’s not yet.”

During lockdown, Sarah has announced news of her new charity Sarah’s Trust back in June.

Officially announcing the news, the Duchess of York said: “I am incredibly excited to be bringing all of my charitable causes under one roof with Sarah’s Trust.

“It’s something I have wanted to do for a long time. We will focus on a whole range of causes, all across the world, but at this terrible time it’s right that our first projects should be to help to contend with the impact of coronavirus both at home and abroad.

“It has been humbling to be able to see just a little bit of the incredible work being done by our @nhsengland and other health workers and I’m proud that, working with my daughters and new colleagues at Sarah’s Trust, we’ve been able to make life a little easier for some of them.

“I’m also pleased that we’ve been able to support vulnerable children in Ghana, building on the sort of charity work I’ve been involved in for many years now.”
