Thinking of some of the strong women who've been part of my life - my late mother, my dear, departed friends Diana and Carolyn Cotterell and my fierce, beautiful, loving daughters Beatrice and Eugenie who make me proud every day #InternationalWomensDay #BalanceforBetter pic.twitter.com/na9Xgdimvc— Sarah Ferguson (@SarahTheDuchess) March 8, 2019

In her thoughtful post, The Duchess of York reminisced some “strong women” who have been a part of her life including her late mother, “dear departed friends” Diana and Carolyn Cotterell, and her “fierce, beautiful, and loving” daughters Beatrice and Eugenie.
She mentioned how these women make her “proud” in the post that features a collection of heartwarming pictures.
Ferguson and Lady Diana’s bonded after marrying into the royal family although their relationship was “complex”. Their friendship was closely admired by the world.
The Duchess of York married Prince Andrew in 1986, 11 years before Lady Diana tragically lost her life in a car accident in 1997.
Although Ferguson and Lady Diana reportedly stopped speaking to one another, Ferguson shared in an interview that the two of them were like “siblings”.
The stories of her feud with Lady Diana are anything but new. The Duchess has been in media’s radar for decades and she was pitted against Lady Diana long before Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton came along.
“Women, in particular, are constantly pitted against and compared with each other in a way that reminds me of how people tried to portray Diana and me all the time as rivals, which is something neither of us ever really felt,” Fergie wrote in an interview with Hello.
In the interview, Ferguson expressed her contempt over the “vile” things that are shared over social media today.
