Duchess of York Sarah Ferguson Opens Up About Quarantine Life Without One of Her Daughters

Amid stay-at-home orders in the United Kingdom, Duchess of York Sarah Ferguson, and her family (except for her older daughter, Princess Beatrice) have been quarantining under one roof. She recently opened up about her quarantine life and missing having her two daughters in the same house when she was a guest on the City Island Podcast along with 2019 X-Factor champ Dalton Harris.

Ferguson, who is also known as Fergie, has been self-isolating with her ex-husband Prince Andrew, daughter Princess Eugenie, and son-in-law Jack Brooksbank at their family’s residence in Windsor, the Royal Lodge. However, the Yorks are missing Princess Beatrice and her fiancé Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, whom she was supposed to marry on May 29. Unfortunately, the soon-to-be married couple had to postpone their wedding due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Fergie revealed that Beatrice is staying with Edoardo and her daughter’s future mother-in-law Nikki Shale, whom the 60-year-old duchess described as a lovely person and a great friend of hers. She said that she misses her daughter, just like any parent. Princess Beatrice still makes sure to keep in touch with her family through video calls.

On the upside, with her younger daughter staying with her, she gets to spend more quality time with Eugenie and Jack. The couple has been married since October 2018. Sarah said that she doesn’t see Eugenie that often ever since she tied the knot. So, she’s loving every moment of their time together under lockdown. They even baked lemon drizzle cake together. Fergie revealed that it was the first time in 30 years that she and Princess Eugenie did it together.

Sarah Ferguson tied the knot with Prince Andrew, Queen Elizabeth II’s third child, and second son, in 1986. Unfortunately, they decided to part ways a decade later, in May 1996. Because of the divorce, Fergie was stripped of the Her Royal Highness (HRH) title. However, she was able to keep the Duchess of York title. She can continue using that title provided that she stays single. If she gets married again, she has to drop the name as well.

Although they are already separated, the Duke and Duchess of York still live under the same roof and reportedly remain close friends. The two were most recently photographed at the Royal Lodge in April. They were reportedly packing cupcakes together to be sent to Thames Hospice.
