The Duchess of York, widely known as Fergie, is known for her flamboyant style and animated character – and the mother-of-the-bride was no different when she arrived at her daughter’s royal wedding to Jack Brooksbank in October. Sarah, 59, enthusiastically waved to crowds and beamed as she got out of her car and greeted royal fans in Windsor. And now Fergie has told how she was warned to be “demure” and told not to “go over the top”, but couldn’t help herself during a rare interview. She told ITV’s Good Morning Britain: “The most extraordinary thing is when I got out of the car everybody said ‘oh no go in to the church, be demure, don’t go over the top’, but you can’t, I went nuts.”

To which Piers Morgan laughed and said: “You can’t, you’re Fergie”, prompting Sarah to laugh.

The 83-year-old had been a close friend of Sarah’s mother and attended the Duchess’s 1986 Westminster Abbey to the Duke of York.

She was killed in a car crash the Rover 400 she was driving collided with a Renault catering truck on a two-lane highway in the countryside.

When I got out of the car everybody said ‘oh no go in to the church be demure, don’t go over the top’, but you can’t, I went nuts.

Speaking about her Manolo Blahnik handbag, the Duchess of York 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.”
