Sarah Ferguson makes a comeback on social media in a new avatar weeks after Queen's funeral
LONDON, ENGLAND: Prince Andrew's ex-wife, Sarah Ferguson has finally posted on social media after a long silence following the Queen's funeral. The mother of Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice shared an image of herself donning an equestrian attire while holding a top hat in her hand on Tuesday, October 4. She appeared to be posing in a stable which matched her outfit. Sarah's last post was recorded on September 9 where she expressed grief about her former mother-in-law's death.
Sarah captioned the Instagram post with, "I hope to see you at Henley Literary Festival Wednesday Oct 5, 2PM where I'll be chatting with @marguerite_kaye about Her Heart for a Compass. Click the link in my bio to claim your tickets now my lovely readers! Xx." The fans of the Duchess of York filled the post with positive comments. A fan of hers commented, "Looking beautiful, that look is so you," while another said, "You look amazing." Another fan claimed to "love all her outfits."
Sarah's outpouring of love for the Queen
Sarah married Andrew in 1986 and had two daughters Eugenie and Beatrice during their time together. The couple separated in 1996. However, they are still very much on good terms as they both live at the Royal Lodge in Windsor Great Park together. Sarah has always been a very close to the Queen but was seemingly absent during the the late monarch's funeral procession held at Westminster Hall on September 14. While she is tight-lipped about the reason, she revealed on an episode of the 'Tea With Twiggy' podcast about the Queen being her "greatest mentor," in 2017. "My greatest mentor and a person who believes in me is the Queen ‑ and [she] has never faltered. I absolutely admire the incredible way Her Majesty is so modern, and how flexible, and how understanding, and how forgiving and how generous," said the Duchess.
Sarah also shared a post expressing her sorrow about the Queen's death on September 9. She reminisced about her bond with the Queen and wrote, "I am heartbroken by the passing of Her Majesty the Queen. She leaves behind an extraordinary legacy: the most fantastic example of duty and service and steadfastness, and a constant steadying presence as our head of state for more than 70 years. She has given her whole life selflessly to the people of the UK and the Commonwealth. To me, she was the most incredible mother-in-law and friend. I will always be grateful to her for the generosity she showed me in remaining close to me even after my divorce. I will miss her more than words can express."
