Sarah Ferguson: Fergie’s mistake which meant she was called ‘VULGAR’ compared to Diana
Sarah Ferguson, who was formerly married to the Duke of York, is said to have made a big fashion mistake in her royal life, which led to her being compared negatively to Princess Diana. It is said her fashion choices caused her to be deemed “vulgar” by an influential member of the Queen’s staff.
Sarah Ferguson, 58, popularly known as Fergie, is the ex wife of the Duke of York and was a friend of the late Princess Diana, who died at the age of 36.
A new documentary has told of how it all went wrong for the Duchess of York in the public eye, leading to negative comparisons with Diana.
It is believed her “vulgar” fashion choices coloured the public perception of her in the early days of her marriage.
While Prince Charles’ late wife Princess Diana was believed to be a royal fashion inspiration, Sarah was not.
This meant that one of the Queen’s advisors was particularly “unkind” about her.
“One of the Queen’s private secretaries described her as “vulgar, vulgar, vulgar.”
“It’s unkind, but I think a lot of people responded to her outfits like that,” a fashion expert told ITV.
The interviews came out as part of The Royal Wives of Windsor, an ITV show which aired at 9pm this evening.
“Fergie sadly may not go down as Diana as a fashion icon,” said one interviewee on the show.
Another interviewee said: “A lot with Sarah was self inflicted.

“She went out on one engagement with the Duke of York and she was wearing a shawl that resembled a duvet.”
Later on in the show, experts discuss how Fergie was “turned against” by the press.
This was before the infamous “toe-sucking” scandal when she was pictured in a compromising situation with her financial advisor.
“Sarah was adored at first, but it quickly began to go wrong and her energy and enthusiasm went wrong,” said one expert.
“The press turned against Fergie, she made one or two mistakes. And then of course she was famously photographed with her financial advisor.”
Yesterday, the first episode of the series explained Princess Diana always called Prince Charles a certain name during their courtship.
During their courtship, Lady Diana always referred to Prince Charles as ’Sir’,” Andrew Morton, a royal biographer revealed.
He added that no one could imagine Meghan Markle, 36, referring to her future husband Prince Harry, 33, in the same way.
Andrew also spoke about the period in which Prince Charles and Diana began courting, when Charles had turned 30 and Diana was just 19.
“At the age of 30, Charles was showing no signs of settling down. On paper, Diana was absolutely perfect as a royal bride,” he said, referring to Diana’s virginity and aristocratic background.
“All of these things seemed to be important at this time,” he added.
