‘Her majesty is incredible!’ Sarah Ferguson in REMARKABLE speech to honour Queen

SARAH Ferguson paid a glowing tribute to Queen Elizabeth as she revealed her happiness at being invited to the wedding of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry last May.

Sarah Ferguson praised the “incredible” Queen for welcoming back into the Royal Family with the invitation to attend the wedding of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry. Fergie insisted Queen Elizabeth is one of the “finest ladies” she has ever met as she shed some light on her feelings about attending the ceremony in Windsor last May. The Duchess of York also revealed she “went nuts” at her daughter Princess Eugenie’s wedding to James Brooksbank in October.

In a rare interview with Good Morning Britain, Fergie said: “Her Majesty is an incredible lady, and what an icon to the country.

“One of the finest people on the world I’ve ever met. Her Majesty leads by such example that to be so inclusive, to include me, it’s a wonderful gesture.”

She continued: “Her Majesty knew me from when I was a little naughty, aged 10. I still am a little naughty, I’m always going to be, that’s why I write children’s books.

“But I can’t thank Her Majesty enough for being so steadfast to me.”

Sarah Ferguson was at the heart of her daughter Princess Eugenie’s wedding celebrations last month. She was seen smiling warmly with Prince Philip, who was famously critical of her during her marriage to Prince Andrew in 1986.

Fergie, 59, enthusiastically waved to crowds and beamed as she got out of her car and greeted royal fans in Windsor. During the interview she told how she was warned to be “demure” and told not to “go over the top” but could not help herself during a rare interview.

She added: “The most extraordinary thing is when I got out of the car everybody said ‘oh no go into the church, be demure, don’t go over the top’, but you can’t, I went nuts.”

The Duchess of York also told how she decided to pay tribute to her late mother, Susan Barrantes, at her daughter’s wedding. Mrs Barrantes tragically died in 1998 in a car accident.

Speaking about the Manolo Blahnik handbag she paired up with a vibrant emerald-green dress, Fergie said:“When I was wearing it, the ladies Emma and Louise form next door made it, and the handbag was what mum had in 1986 for my wedding and when I opened the bag there were the green admission tickets from 1986 so I wore green for her from the tickets from the bag.”

Sarah also said she felt very grateful towards Meghan Markle and Prince Harry for inviting her to their wedding. She had previously been snubbed when Prince William tied the knot with Kate Middleton in 2011.

She laughingly added: “It was nerve-wracking and I was glad I didn’t trip over with those high-heeled shoes.

“I felt that I was really happy for my friend Diana, who I love, and my mum and dad. I felt very honoured and grateful for Harry and Meghan to invite me. That was a big point.”

Sarah Ferguson appeared on the ITV morning show talk about the charity Street Child which helps educate children in some of the world’s toughest places to grow up.

Fergie, who is a founder patron of Street Child was joined by Tom Dannatt, the charity’s CEO and founder where they are expected to discuss the charity’s 10th anniversary.

Her daughters Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie are also involved with the charity.
