The Queen had a special role in the planning of Princess Eugenie’s wedding which the Duchess of York only recently revealed.


It is no secret that Fergie is full of admiration for her role model and former mother-in-law the Queen, 92, clearly expressed as she said:

“The queen and I always got on well, still do. I uphold everything Her Majesty represents, has given up her life for. For her country, she’s selfless to the grave.”


Fergie finally revealed that it was the Queen who insisted that her daughter, Princess Eugenie, get married at St George’s Chapel and commented:

“I am so grateful for all the hard work and kindness behind the scenes to make such a special day for our daughter.”

The Duchess also spoke about how beautiful Princess Eugenie looked in her Peter Pilotto wedding gown, which got specifically designed to show the scar from a corrective surgery she received for scoliosis when she was 12 years old. She said:

“I was so proud of Eugenie standing tall and showing her scar. She is an inspiration to young women everywhere.”

Fergie looked beautiful on her daughter’s wedding as she wore an emerald green dress by Windsor designer Emma Louise Design and a Jess Collet hat. She proudly shared photos of Jack and Princess Eugenie leaving the chapel after the ceremony and wrote on Instagram:

“Andrew and I are proud to welcome Jack to the York family… So proud of Eugenie and Jack.”


Sarah and Andrew got married in Westminster Abbey on July 23, 1986, after which the Queen bestowed the titles of Duke and Duchess of York upon the couple. According to biographer Sarah Bradford Fergie struggled with the demands of her title and her husband’s duties as a naval officer.

By 1991 their marriage was under a lot of strain, followed by a separation in 1992 and led to their official separation when the Duke and Duchess announced the mutual decision to divorce in May 1996.

Even though they divorced they remained good friends and still live together at their residence at the Royal Lodge in Windsor.


Prince Philip has not been as forgiving of Fergie as his son Andrew, as he allegedly still harbors ill feelings towards Fergie from 1992 after the scandal broke that involved images of John Bryan, Texan millionaire kissing and sucking Fergie's toes in France the same year.

They put their personal feelings aside on Princess Eugenie’s wedding and posed for pictures that got taken in the White Drawing Room at Windsor Castle standing alongside each other.
