Sarah Ferguson: Duchess of York Prince Andrew ex reveals passion as she turns age 60

Sarah Ferguson married into the Royal Family in 1986.

At that moment she became Her Royal Highness The Duchess of York, but now she is known only as the Sarah, Duchess of York.

This is because she and Prince Andrew, 59, divorced in 1996.

However, the couple remain great friends, still living together in the Royal Lodge, Windsor.

Sarah, who is often fondly referred to as “Fergie”, was born 15 October 1959.

She may not be an HRH anymore, but the Duchess is still beloved to many Britons, as are her daughters.

Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie are eighth and ninth in the line of succession.

Last week Sarah announced a new passion project with her daughter Eugenie on her Instagram account.

The Duchess honoured International Day of the Girl with her charity Street Child.

She wrote: “Honoured to chair panel discussion for my charity @streetchilduk to mark #InternationalDayOfTheGirl, held in partnership with @hellomag. So happy and proud my daughter Eugenie was there as global ambassador for Street Child.

“Globally 64 million girls aged 5 to 14 are out of school.

“Educating girls has enormous and far-reaching benefits like reducing rates of child marriage, promoting healthier and smaller families, improving wages and jobs for women, and empowering women to have a voice in decisions that affect their lives.

That is why #InternationalDayOfTheGirl @StreetChildUK are calling on you to help close the gap between the world’s most marginalised girls and the rest, ensuring that they no longer get left behind.

“Thanks to the UK government all public donations made before 4th January 2020 to Street Child’s #MindTheGap appeal will be doubled, meaning a donation of just £15 is enough to cover the school fees, uniform and learning materials for a girl.”

Recently Sarah Ferguson admitted to Botox and facelifts to keep her looking youthful.

In an exclusive interview with the Daily Mail, Fergie revealed she has had botox, a thread lift, organic fillers, a laser facelift and vitamin injections in her face.

The Duchess told the publication that she had laser treatment on her face ahead of her daughter Eugenie’s wedding to Jack Brooksbank.

Sarah is keen to make sure she stays looking natural, however. “I really don’t like the frozen look,” the Duchess said. “I’m so animated and I like to be myself.

“I don’t like the thought of needles and am very glad if I look well and happy.”

Sarah Ferguson: Five facts about the Duchess of York


Sarah is the second daughter of Major Ronald Ferguson and Susan Mary Wright.

Her parents divorced in 1974, with her mother going on to marry polo player Héctor Barrantes in 1975 and moving to Argentina. Sarah stayed in the UK with her father, who remarried in 1976 and went on to have three more children.


Sarah married Prince Andrew on 23 July 1986 at Westminster Abbey in London.

She wore an ivory-silk wedding gown designed by Lindka Cierarch which had a 17 foot train and 20 foot veil. As is tradition, Sarah wore a diamond tiara, and her wedding band was crafted from Welsh gold.

The couple spent their honeymoon abroad the real yacht Britannia off the coast of the Azores Islands.


Sarah and Andrew divorced in 1996 after separating in 1992.

However the couple remain on good terms, even living together in the Royal Lodge from 2008 until Sarah moved to a ski chalet in Switzerland they bought together in 2015.


Sarah has written children’s books for many years, her first being a series about Budgie The Helicopter in the early 90s.

She has also been the US spokeswoman for WeightWatchers after famously battling her weight over the years.

On top of commercial endeavours, the Duchess devotes plenty of time to charity, including Children in Crisis, which she founded in 1993.

Social media

Fergie, as she is known to friends, uses both Twitter and Instagram.

She has over 200,000 followers across the platforms, and shares many insights in to her life.

Most of the Royal Family are not on social media, but are represented by Kensington Palace, Buckingham Palace, or Clarence House.

Sarah’s daughters, Beatrice and Eugenie, are the exception, with both joining their mother on social media.
