These days, Sarah Ferguson is on good terms with the royal family –– possibly even better terms than Prince Andrew, who is reportedly considering following in Prince Harry’s footsteps with his own volatile tell-all book. Yet, from the sound of her recent interview on the podcast “Life’s a Beach,” it seems that she wasn’t particularly close with one member of the royal family. The Duchess of York describes her ex-father-in-law, Prince Phillip, as “very wise.” Yet, she says, “You had to be on your best. If you asked a silly comment, you were certainly told it was a silly comment.” Fergie laughingly called it “terrifying,” adding that it could make “you lose all your confidence.”
While it’s easy to see that Ferguson thinks fondly of her late ex-father-in-law, her description of his serious disposition certainly painted a picture. These days, she has an unusual way of being able to feel close to the late Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip. Upon her death, the Queen gave her beloved corgis, Muick and Sandy, to Ferguson. During an appearance on BBC’s “The One Show,” Ferguson explained, “One thing I really love when I’m with them … I really think about [Her Majesty], and I just really think about the value system that she supported in this country.” It’s clear, based on the corgis’ new home, that Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip cared for Ferguson just as much as she cared for them.
