Duchess of York reveals she was thinking of Diana during Harry wedding

‘Diana was in my heart’: Duchess of York Sarah Ferguson reveals how she was thinking of her beloved friend when she made ‘nerve-wracking’ return to royal fold at Harry and Meghan’s wedding

Sarah Ferguson has revealed how her close friend Princess Diana was at the front of her mind as she made her ‘nerve-wracking’ return to the royal fold at Harry and Meghan’s wedding.

Prince Andrew’s ex-wife said she ‘wanted to cry’ when she was greeted by cheering crowds at Windsor Castle as she arrived for the ceremony in May earlier this year.

The occasion saw the Duchess of York emerge from years in royal wilderness, having been snubbed for the wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge in 2011.

During a rare TV appearance on Good Morning Britain, she told how her late sister-in-law Princess Diana had dominated her thoughts on the day.

Speaking about the walk into the church and past hundreds of royal fans, she said: ‘It was nerve-wracking and I was glad I didn’t trip over in those heels. 

‘But the minute I started to walk I was thinking of Diana in my heart and my mum. My dad would say “the show goes on, get on with it”.

‘I also felt so emotional because of the kind people that had been so lovely, plus Jack Brooksbank [Princess Eugenie’s then-fiance] came towards me with open arms.

‘I felt very happy for my friend Diana, who I love, and I felt honoured to be invited by Meghan and Harry. It was very kind of them I can’t thank them enough for doing that.’ 

The Duchess also revealed that she views herself and Diana as ‘trailblazers’ for the likes of Meghan and Kate on the ‘dos and don’ts’ of royal life.
