Sarah Ferguson is more than ready to welcome her first grandchild at age 61. The Duchess of York shared her excitement while revealing that she has plans to over pamper the baby.

Sarah Ferguson and Prince Andrew's younger daughter, Princess Eugenie, 30, is set to be a first-time mom this year. This child will be the British Queen's ninth grandchild.

For Prince Andrew and his ex-wife, Ferguson, it will be their first time as grandparents. The entire household is swimming in sheer excitement, and the soon-to-be grandmother has announced that she will spoil the little one silly.

She explained that playing with children makes her happy and that Eugenie's child would have the most memorable childhood, especially since grandma will have a fun time playing and will also buy every toy required.

The Duchess also admitted that despite grandparents spoiling and providing all the fun for their kids, they might not necessarily be in charge. According to her:

"The great thing about grandmothers is you get to spoil the kids rotten and enjoy all the fun and mischief of childhood, but ultimately it's not you who's in charge."


Ferguson promises to have more in store for her first grandchild. The author recently embarked on a project that involves writing children's books.

She has started the process and is set to debut the publication titled "The Adventures of Charlie, Blue and Larry the Lamp Post" in the coming weeks.

Without a doubt, the 61-year-old believes her daughter will not stray from what she learned while growing up.


This was an action inspired by the news of the baby's arrival, and the author told a news outlet that the book, which will have 12 more volumes, is dedicated to her unborn grandchild.

One major topic that recently had Ferguson's heart apart from baby jitters is seeing her life on TV. She happens to be a fan of the Netflix series "The Crown," which features the English royals' lives.

While commenting on one of the episodes that depicted her 1986 wedding to Prince Andrew, she said: "I thought it was filmed beautifully. The cinematography was excellent. I loved the way they put my wedding in as well."


While binging Netflix series and excitedly waiting for Eugenie's baby to be born, the Duchess has voiced her opinions concerning the 30-year-old's parenting skills.

Without a doubt, the 61-year-old believes her daughter will not stray from what she learned while growing up. She acknowledges that the expectant mother will be "present" in the child's life, just like she was.

Ferguson is still very present in her kids' life, Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice. Recently, the mother of two talked about missing her older daughter, who was absent, while spending time with the rest of the family at their Windsor Lodge.
