Fergie praises ‘extraordinary’ Beatrice and Eugenie and says her family represents ‘kindness’


The Duchess of York has paid tribute to her daughters, Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie, for their hard work as she says the York family is a “supportive unit”.

Sarah Ferguson, 63, popped in this morning to promote her new romance novel, A Curious Lady, which was published today, and was asked about her family.

Having publicly expressed her support for Prince Andrew when he was taken to court over allegations of sexual abuse, which he has always denied, the Duchess said she will always be by her ex-husband’s side just as he has always supported her.

She told announcers Holly Willoughby and Joel Dummett that family “doesn’t stand for judgment, kindness, and moving forward.”

Fergie discussed the importance of “moving forward as a unit” amid difficult times, and criticized social media “sewers” for being inappropriate.

As she sat on the This Morning sofa, Holly asked the Duchess about the difficulties she faced in the past few years as Virginia Gioffre accused Prince Andrew of assault.

Last year, the Duke of York, 63, settled out of court with Ms Giuffre in an undisclosed payment but believed to have been around £10m.

Discussing her support for her ex-husband, Fergie said: “It’s Beatrice, Eugenie and I are a family unit.

“My girls are for service, they believe in taking on and keeping very challenging jobs and they are mothers and public figures who do philanthropy.

The Duchess of York appeared this morning to discuss the release of her new romance, A More Curious Lady, and spoke about how her family unit means “kindness” and “non-judgment” when asked about her support for Prince Andrew after sex. allegations of assault against him

Fergie said the York family's unity symbolizes

Fergie said that the York family’s unity symbolizes “non-judgment, kindness, and moving forward” and that people should “stop believing what they read”.

And she continued, “They are extraordinary examples of princesses who were in service, which is what their grandmother taught them and what she taught them with humility.

So I think the York family unit does not stand for judgment and kindness and going forward to make people sit up and stop.

Stop believing what you are reading… Go forward as a unit.

Fergie added, “Remember, I had a hard time and he was always there for me.”

Elsewhere in the interview, the Duchess joked that her grandsons August Brooksbank and Sienna Mapelli Mozzi think “Grandma is hilarious” because she often reads them bedtime stories and gets personal while doing so.

She also revealed that her book will soon be adapted for television, but did not confirm when the series will begin production.

When asked if she thought the novel could kill Prince Harry’s memoirs, she said: ‘I think so! And Jeffrey Archer, too! Get them out!

In a later clip, the Duchess took part in a pet psychic reading, where Bethany Crowler showed a photo of Moeck and Sandy, the corgis she and Prince Andrew inherited from Queen Elizabeth, to see what they thought.

After looking at a picture of the dogs, the psychiatrist determined that they had managed to adjust to new owners well after Her Late Majesty’s passing, but they needed reassurance and one followed Fergie’s dogs more frequently.

She added that one of the dogs was likely suffering from bloating and could have done so by changing the diet.

Fergie revealed that Mrs. Crowler was “spot on” and Sandy actually followed her everywhere she went, while Muick “eats everything”.

On Monday, the Duchess appeared on The One Show as part of her promotional tour, and revealed her concern about corgis.

“They are National Treasures – I feel terrified when they come out running,” she told the broadcasters.

They chase everything. Right in the trees, bang, so! I say “No, no, no, the nation loves you, stop, stop, stop chasing squirrels!”

The Duchess’s novel, released today, is her second romance book after Turning a Compass, which will be published in 2021.
