Princess Diana would be “proud” of the sons and their “wonderful wives” says Sarah Ferguson.

Princess Diana would be “proud” of the sons and their “wonderful wives”, Sarah Ferguson has told People magazine.

“If she were sitting with me right now, I know she would say, ‘I am so proud of both of my boys and the wonderful wives they have chosen,’ because each has got her own voice,” the Duchess of York said.

“And she would be just like me, obsessed with her grandchildren. Because that’s what she loved.”

Princess Diana was close with the Duchess’ daughters Princess Eugenie, 31, and Princess Beatrice, 32, Diana “adored my girls. She adored the boys. This would be her haven. Her heaven,” she added.

Sarah Ferguson said she and Diana had been teenage friends and revealed Diana’s nickname was “Duch”.

“We were best friends from when she was 14 and I was 15,” she said.

“She taught me so much of public life. She was so brave. We used to have the most incredible time together,” she added.

The Duchess, whose debut novel, the sweeping coming-of-age story Her Heart for a Compass, will be published by Mills and Boon on August 3.
