Queen: Sarah Ferguson reveals she calls Her Majesty THIS secret name ‘in private’
QUEEN ELIZABETH: Sarah Ferguson, the ex wife of Prince Andrew, once called the Queen a specific very personal name in private circumstances, her memoir revealed.
Queen Elizabeth II, 91, was once mother in law to Sarah Ferguson, 58, the ex wife of Prince Andrew, 58.
The Queen is also grandmother to the Duchess of York’s two daughters: Princess Eugenie, 27, and Princess Beatrice, 29.
This relationship afforded Sarah certain liberties with Her Royal Highness in the past, including a secret name she used to call her in private settings.
In her book My Story, which she wrote in 1996, Sarah revealed she used to call the Queen “mama”.
“In private, I called her mama… When she waved me to sit next to her in the car or at church, I felt favoured and blessed.”
She also expanded in the book on how the Queen continued to be “consistent” with her after her 1992 separation from Prince Andrew.
“Through all the chaos of the past six months, the Queen and I had stayed consistent.
“She still took my calls, and I still brought her grandchildren to Windsor for tea on Sundays.”
In the past, Sarah has also described herself as “lucky” to be able to talk to the Queen.
She revealed this during an interview with Australian channel Eyewitness News in 2016, two decades after her 1996 divorce to Prince Andrew.
“When you are lucky enough to be able to talk to Her Majesty, everything’s always OK,” she told the broadcaster.
Sarah, who still lives with Prince Andrew at the Royal Lodge, is reportedly closer to the Royal Family than she has been in recent years.

The Duchess of York frequently tags Prince Andrew in posts on her Instagram.
Also, Sarah is invited to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding in May, according to reports.
The wedding will be shortly followed by the wedding of Sarah and Prince Andrew’s own daughter, Princess Eugenie, in October this year.
