Sarah Ferguson opened up about her past mental issues
Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York revealed that she had a lot of mental problems that she has kept a secret for a long time.
The 63-year-old former Royal appeared in an interview on stage at the 92nd Street Y in New York on Monday. She said,
“I’ve always managed to hide [them] very well. People-pleasing, over-generosity, gift-giving, all that sort of stuff,”
Moreover, the Duchess also revealed why she felt the utter need to buy presents for others in her life in the past.
Prince Andrew‘s former wife confessed,
“[It was], ‘They can’t love me,’”
“I have no self-worth, therefore I must over-compensate. And it’s a thing I talk about very candidly.”
Ferguson was present at the event to promote her latest novel called A Most Intriguing Lady. She also joked with the crowd saying that she also wants to do acting apart from writing.
“I would like to do a Hallmark film,”
“I want to be the one who leaves New York and goes to Vermont or somewhere and the car goes off the road and a really handsome man comes to rescue me.”
Sarah felt reluctant to talk about Prince Andrew and Prince Harry
The Her Heart for a Compass author, however, hesitated to talk about her former husband when asked. She did not shy away from calling him a good man at a point.
Andrew was forced to step down from his Royal roles due to his controversial friendship with sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.
Ferguson then turned the conversation into a discussion about the exes’ two daughters, Princess Beatrice, and Princess Eugenie.
“The thing is, is that the girls and I are called ‘the tripod,’ but it’s very sad to see the cruelty given to another,”
“And I feel very strongly that the most important thing is to keep Beatrice and Eugenie and tripod, the mum, the best way we can, [which to] win is by success, and my goodness, the kids are incredible.”
Ferguson, who shared a troublesome relationship with the Royal Family also managed to tackle the questions when asked about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
The Duchess explained,
“[Princess] Diana and I, we played a lot and had a great time and I feel really strongly — and so would the King — [that she would] be so proud of the grandchildren. And of the family.”
Perhaps hinting at the current strained relationship between Harry and King Charles III, Sarah said,
”And I do believe in family unity. I think forgiveness is key,”
The Sussexes confirmed that the Royal household asked them to vacate Frogmore cottage, the day after the Prince’s controversial memoir Spare was released.
