Sarah Ferguson Felt 'Hurt' By Not Being Invited To Royal Wedding
While the who’s who of the world was invited to the royal wedding, one face was conspicuous in its absence: Duchess Sarah Ferguson. "I was not invited, and I chose to go and be in Thailand in a place called Camelia and ... the jungle embraced me," Ferguson, 51, told Oprah on Friday.
The Duchess of York, who is divorced from Prince William's uncle, Prince Andrew, said the snub was "so difficult. Because I wanted to be there with my girls and … to be getting them dressed and to go as a family. And also it was so hard because the last bride up that aisle was me." Ferguson entire family was invited, including her ex-husband Prince Andrew, and her daughters Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie. She admitted that not being invited was even more hurtful because “when Andrew went with the girls, we were talking all morning and he was saying, 'It's okay. Just remember we had such a good day. Our wedding was so perfect,'” she said. “We're such a unit together. He made me feel very part of the day on April the 29th."
However, Ferguson said the late Princess Diana would have been proud of her two sons. “They did a great job. And I really love the feeling that sort of Diana and I both weren't there. But I'm here to say how proud she would have been, and Kate [Middleton] looked utterly beautiful,” she said.
In 2010, Ferguson was caught on camera accepting money in exchange for a promise of business access to her ex-husband. When asked if she felt ostracized by the Royal Family, Ferguson denied it, saying that she had ostracized herself “by my behavior, by the past, by living with all the regrets of my mistakes, that I sort of wore a hair shirt and beat myself up most of the day thinking and regretting why did I make such a mistake?”
