Many love Sarah Ferguson’s spirited personality.

In contrast to the proper traditions of the royals, she may have been exactly what the family needed, especially in the 1980s.

And now, the beloved Duchess of York has spoken out for her first in-depth interview in 20 years.

Speaking to the Daily Mail, Sarah recalled her daughter’s recent wedding with fondness and said it reminded her of her dear friend Princess Diana.

When she shuffled into the church, surrounded by loved ones, the duchess was struck by the loss of her best friend.

“I thought of absent friends and family; of Diana – but she’s with me all the time. What I miss most is her tinkling laughter,” she said.

“Diana was my best friend and the funniest person I knew. She had such a timing and wit.

“It was a total joy to be with her because we just laughed and enjoyed life so much, and I know she would have loved the wedding.”

The mum became overwhelmed with the love that filled the wedding chapel on her daughter’s big day.

The sparks flew between Eugenie and Jack, and Sarah knew that her daughter shared the same joy that her and Diana used to.

“My proudest moment,” Duchess Sarah said, “was watching Eugenie standing tall, very proud to show her scoliosis scar in her low-backed dress.

“I’d gone to all the fittings and sat there beaming with delight, and because there was no veil it was a very strong statement.

“We rang St George’s Chapel to make sure there wasn’t a special rule specifying veils must be worn, but there wasn’t and Eugenie just wanted to be herself.

“The tiara (borrowed from granny) danced to her. She was just so radiant. She said: ‘Mum, I thought I was going to get nerves,’ but she didn’t.

“She and Jack are just meant to be. He adores her, and now I’ve got a son.”

Sarah will always share that special friendship with Princess Diana, doting on some of their favourite memories together.

And now her daughter has found her best friend for life, a man that her mum sees will make Eugenie laugh and bring her life joy.

Princess Eugenie has shared a never-before-seen wedding snap and our hearts just can’t cope.

The gorgeous bride and husband Jack cuddled their bridesmaids and page boys in the beautiful shot that was taken at Kensington Palace.

The photo was taken by British photographer Alex Bramall. He said it was an “honour and a privilege" to capture Eugenie and Jack’s special day on camera.

Eugenie captioned the snap: “Jack and I would like to thank everyone who was involved in making our day so special and for all the wonderful wishes as we start married life laughing together.”

The lovebirds tied the knot on Friday, October 12. The star-studded wedding ceremony took place at St. George’s Chapel on the grounds of Windsor Castle.

Jack sobbed as Eugenie was escorted up the aisle by her dad the Duke of York.

Apparently, Jack said: “Oh… my heart… Oh, break my heart,” as Eugenie walked up the aisle.

Eugenie and Jack exchanged vows in front of celebrity friends and members of the royal family. Queen Elizabeth II and husband Prince Philip were in attendance, as well as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Charles and a host of celebrities.

Talk about relationship goals, am I right?

Just a day after our heart's MELTED as Princess Eugenie married her long-term boyfriend Jack Brooksbank in St George's Chapel in Windsor, the beaming couple have already released four official royal wedding photos. 

Princess Eugenie wore an incredible a Peter Pilotto wedding gown (designed by Pilotto and Christopher de Vos) for the ceremony – which incorporated a number of meaningful, personal symbols to the princess, such as a shamrock as a nod to her Irish heritage – and contrary to reports, did change into a formal evening dress for her evening reception at her family home in Windsor Lodge – a beautiful silk Zac Posen creation. The American designer, according to Buckingham Palace, was inspired by Windsor and the surrounding countryside and "the blush of an English rose," when designing the dress.

In the other three photos released, the bridal party was captured in the White Drawing Room in Windsor, including a beaming Prince George next to his sister Princess Charlotte with Jack alongside Theodora, the daughter of Robbie Williams and Ayda Field, and the rest of the page boys and flower girls.

A separate shot was also taken with the immediate members of the royal family, including Princess Eugenie's grandparents, Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Phillip and her parents, the Duke and Duchess of York, Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson. Her now-husband's parents were also in the photograph.    

Finally, a beautiful black and white portrait of the happy couple sharing a kiss during the carriage procession was released. The couple said they were "delighted" to share the pictures with the public.

The photos were taken by British fashion photographer Alex Bramall, who said it was "an honour and a privilege" to be invited to photograph the couple. He previously shot the Princess for a profile in Harper's Bazaar. 

Eugenie and Jack exchanged vows in front of their nearest and dearest friends, members of the royal family and 850 guests who were invited to join them on the special day, including celebrity friends such as Liv Tyler, Demi Moore and Cara Delevingne.

They looked genuinely in love and thrilled to be tying the knot, as we all say from the ITV broadcast which attracted over 3 million viewers – the highest view count for the channel since Will and Kate's marriage in 2011. 

Congratulations to the gorgeous couple!

Sarah Ferguson arrived at St George's Chapel to witness her youngest daughter Princess Eugenie marry her fiancé and long-time boyfriend Jack Brooksbank.

Wearing an emerald green dress which show-cased her glamour, the Duchess of York donned an amusing green hat as she climbed the chapel stairs. The dress was made by local Ascot dress maker Emma Louise Design.

It seems to be the hat that’s gaining more attention than the dress, for once. It would be more suited to Hogwarts than Windsor Castle tbh.

It’s resemblance to the famous golden snitch from the Harry Potter Quidditch franchise has not gone amiss:

The hat was nearly blown away in the wind as she attended the wedding, but the wings probably would have carried it to safety, or else strategically landed on Princess Eugenie’s head to get the best view of the wedding.

Who knows, maybe two teams of Quidditch players would have chased it around the grounds on broomsticks?

Ferguson may even be showing her Harry Potter house colours, who would have thought she’d be Team Slytherin?

The mother of the bride was joined by eldest daughter and maid of honour Princess Beatrice, who wore blue.

Sources are insinuating that Beatrice is Team Ravenclaw. If she is the seeker she's in a great position to get the snitch, that's for sure…

Princess Beatrice, elder sister and Maid of Honour to Princess Eugenie, has broken a slight tradition with her outfit for the royal wedding and opted for an outfit of colour, after some experts expected her to wear a more pastel colour in line with the bride, as Pippa Middleton did to sister Kate's marriage to Prince William. And she also opted to arrive with her mother, rather than the bride as was expected. 

She arrived at St. George's Chapel in Windsor alongside her mother, Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York, wearing a boatneck-style Ralph & Russo dress, which was a vibrant royal blue. It was accompanied by a simple purple fascinator.

Eugenie's wedding dress code was quite strict (men had to wear morning coats and women day dresses), and Beatrice followed the rules to a T by perfectly matching her fascinator to her dress (as the royals do) and a pair of heels. Her style for the day, was fittingly, more demure than on previous occasions so that her sister would take centre stage. 

A Maid of Honour isn't quite as big a tradition in Britain as it is here or in the US, but the royal family confirmed that Beatrice would take the role by sharing a sweet family snap of the two sisters on social media.

The elder sibling was also notably there as a support to her mother, who though no longer officially in the royal family, naturally played a key part in the wedding. Despite the Duke and Duchess or York separating many years ago, they still live together and are frequently seen out at public events supporting both their daughters.

The big day has finally arrived for the Royals, and the bride has made her appearance. 

Princess Eugenie made her entrance at St. George’s Chapel looking incredible in a Peter Pilotto gown.

The dress was designed by both Peter Pilotto and Christopher de Vos, and it has buckled the minimalist trend that other Royals have opted for. 

Eugenie is wearing the stunning Greville Emerald Kokoshnik tiara, also known as the Boucheron tiara.

The gorgeous piece of jewellery once belonged to the Queen Mother, who was left it by Mrs Greville. 

The 28-year-old opted for her hair to be in an up style by Sonny-Jo Macfarlane at Hari’s and make-up by Bobbi Brown’s Hannah Martin.

Eugenie accessorised her look by matching the tiara with emerald earrings. 

The diamond drop earrings are a gift from the groom, Jack Brooksbank.

Eugenie’s wedding shoes are by Charlotte Olympia and she carried a bouquet by Patrice van Hellen Oakes. 

The off-the-shoulder, Peter Pilotto gown beautifully honours her battle with scoliosis.

The princess underwent surgery at age 12 for the spinal condition and she bravely chose to embrace her scars on her big day.

Jack and Eugenie are now officially man and wife.

The Duchess York has officially fired back at the Daily Mail, and we could not agree more with what she had to say. Get it, mama!

Sarah Ferguson could not believe the content of the scathing article Jan Moir at the Daily Mail penned about her daughter.

Princess Eugenie recently announced that that her wedding will be held in St. George’s Chapel, Windsor, and 1200 seats will be open for the public to attend.

Because this is the same venue Prince Harry and Meghan Markle had for their wedding, Jan claimed in her article: ‘Who the hell does Princess Eugenie think she is?’

But that’s not all the writer had to say about the princess.

The article went on to compare her to one of the Queen’s corgis, critiqued her outfit choices, called her spoiled, and mocked her job at an art gallery.

‘Let us be frank. For her first 28 years on this planet, Her Royal Highness Princess Eugenie of York has done almost nothing of note,’ the writer continued.

Don't believe us? Check out the article for yourself. There is no holding back on the attack of the princess' character.

Poor Eugenie was then labelled as a royal moocher, with the dead set goal of gaining fame from her royal relations.

‘Like a neatly groomed, determined seagull, Eugenie has spent nearly three decades drifting along in the richly foaming wake of the Queen, picking off what she can from the royal catch.’

Well, her mother, and rightly so, decided to break the usual rules of engaging the media and step in to defend her daughter.

The Duchess of York posted a letter that her colleague Sarah Wade, CEO of Humanitas Charity, wrote to the Daily Mail.

The CEO questioned what the article’s purpose was: ‘Is it to make a young couple feel embarrassed or ashamed of the choices they have made for their wedding day or it is to invite anger and hatred towards them?’

She also called the article ‘tantamount to bullying’ and said the Daily Mail’s words were ‘unfounded and hurtful abuse’.

Eugenie’s mother posted the letter with the caption: ‘Couldn’t agree more with this letter about the disgusting article that Jan Moir wrote about @princesseugenie and Jack. Bullying at its’ premium and hiding behind a newspaper commenting about people you’ve never met.’

It seems that Sarah Ferguson is not going to lie down while her daughter’s reputation is slandered by a widespread publication based on ‘unfounded’ grounds. Girls have got to stick together!

The charity CEO then ended the letter with: ‘It is imperative that we support freedom of expression, but not when the intended outcome is to inflict pain on another person or incite others to do so.

‘And Jan Moir’s article does just that.’

Commenters have expressed their support for the Duchess and her daughter Jeanie, and could not believe that Jan’s article had been approved by the newspaper.

‘Good for You Ms. Sarah! Awesome retart. All Mom's should take a page from your book!’ One mum from Texas replied.

‘Absolutely disgraceful article and it’s about time Moir was sacked ! Daily Mail get your act together.. bullying on an epic scale,’ said another comment.

We have yet to see a response from Jan Moir or the Daily Mail, but we're glad to see Sarah Ferguson is making a stand against uncalled for negativity and what another commenter called, 'defamation of character'.

On Monday night, top model Jourdan Dunn was at LouLou’s nightclub in Mayfair to join the likes of Cara and Suki for a star-studded fashion bash.

Unfortunately for this Victoria’s Secret model however, things did not go according to plan.

 

A photo posted by Jourdan Dunn (@officialjdunn) on

On her way out of the venue a model and her friend were surrounded by paparazzi trying to get a shot of the pair.

As they tried to make an exit from Love Magazine’s Fashion Week party the 25-year old’s pal got on the wrong side of one photographer and the two ended up coming to blows.

In a video posted by TMZ, the model can be seen trying to stop her friend from engaging with the paparazzi but it clearly did not work out well.

While it is not clear from the video what started the fight, it does become pretty clear how it all ended, with one photographer on the ground and Jourdan hopping into a car for a quick exit.

The name of Jourdan’s friend is not known although some media outlets speculate that he could be a publicist. 

However he didn’t appear to be at her side earlier in the day when she attended the Burberry show at Kensington Gardens.

Also spotted at the party, but decidedly not in the same video, was Princess Eugenie. The royal was seen arm in arm with Cara Delevingne as they left the party alongside actress Clara Paget.
