SARAH Ferguson, the Duchess of York, has confessed her "comeback" moment when she arrived at the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle in May, she was so "nervous" and "moving" that she broke down in tears.
The 59-year-old woman, who is the ex-wife of Prince Andrew and mother of the princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, joined Piers Morgan, Susanna Reid and Kate Garraway in Good morning brittany where she talked about how exciting the wedding was at Windsor Castle, Sun reports.
"It was stressful, and I was glad I had not tripped over those high-heeled shoes," he said.
"The moment I started walking (from the car), I kept thinking about Diana in my heart and thought about my mother and father, who said:" Come on, the show goes on! " He always taught me to walk upright
"It was quite extraordinary. I really looked around and thought: "Are they [cheering] For me? & # 39;
"And someone said 'Fergie' and it was like old Fergie was back."
"I felt that sense of support from the crowd, which was very kind," he said.
"When I got to the corner (of the church), what made me cry was the kind people (among the crowd) who had been so lovely, plus Jack (Brooksbank) was standing there and coming towards me with his arms open.
"It was very moving."
During her marriage to Prince Andrew, Fergie was known for her sense of humor, her daring fashion choices and her friendship with the late Princess Diana.
After her separation from Andrew in 1992, she was also involved in numerous scandals that saw her excluded from the royal family.
Tensions between the Duchess and the family were highlighted when she stayed out of the guest list at the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton in 2011.
Despite claims of a breakup, Fergie said she was deeply honored to be back in "The Firm" for the big day of Harry and Meghan.
"I was very happy for my friend Diana, whom I love," he added.
"I felt very, very honored and grateful for Harry and Meghan for inviting me. That is a great, great point.
"They were very kind and I can not thank them enough for doing that."
She said Diana would have nothing but love for her daughters-in-law.
"She would really be so proud." Even before they were married, Diana would literally have gone "I can not believe that these guys have done so well."
"They are a great credit to her, I miss her, nobody made me laugh better than her, she was hilarious," she said. "She had this enormous compassion and, honestly, I think she would also be very proud of the wonderful Meghan and Catherine, who would like to hold them and say 'You're doing fine'."
Fergie also took a moment to mention the queen.
"Your Majesty is an incredible woman and an icon for the country and one of the best people in the world I have ever met.
"His Majesty gives us that example … and including me (at Harry's wedding) was a wonderful gesture," he added.
The wedding of Harry and Meghan in May set the precedent for the wedding of their daughter, Princess Eugenia, at Windsor Castle in October.
Speaking about the special day when her youngest daughter married wine merchant Jack Brooksbank, Fergie said they were in love.
"The love between Jack and Eugenie is huge … they're twin flames … they're meant to be together," he said. "We were so proud and fuck, I wanted to cry."
"See Eugenie bloom like her and be so brave with her scoliosis."
The Duchess revealed that she wore a wide-brimmed hat by Jess Collett, with two "wings" of straw that came from her side in honor of her mother.
His mother Susan Barrantes caused a stir after fleeing to Argentina with a professional polo player when Fergie was a child. He later died in a car accident in Buenos Aires at the age of 61.
"I wanted that Spanish style again for mom, that Argentine look," said Fergie.
She said she had no idea it would lead to comparisons with Harry Potter's golden snitch.
"We love the golden snitch, in fact, I did not realize that until later," he said.
