Fergie says she was most ‘persecuted royal woman in history’ after Andrew split

Sarah Ferguson has claimed she is the "most persecuted" woman in royal family history.

The Duchess of York told French magazine, Madame Figaro, that it's in her DNA to overcome adversity.

The 62-year-old confessed she still loves Prince Andrew, 61, and she stands by him in the face of sexual assault allegations made by Victoria Giuffre, which the Duke of York vehemently denies.

Fergie, speaking of negative media coverage she suffered following separating from Prince Andrew in 1992, opened up over the difficult time after the breakup.

She said: "I was maybe the most persecuted woman in the history of the royal family, but I'm still here.

"The bruised reed that doesn't break is in my DNA."

The mum-of-two said her daughters are her priority and never misses any of the calls if they phone.

Fergie went on to say being a mother was the one thing she has done best in her life, believing it was because she did not have a motherly figure of her own.

Susan Barrantes divorced her father in 1974 and moved to Latine America to raise horses before she passed away in 1998, six years after Fergie and Andrew's split.

Speaking of her ex-husband, who she still lives with at Royal Lodge in Windsor, she reminisced over her wedding day.

She added the big day was the most beautiful day of her life.

Fergie said: "I loved him and I still love him today, I will stay by his side, because I believe in him, he is a good man."

It comes after Ms Giuffre, 38, made allegations against the prince that she was sexually assaulted.

The Duke of York has not been criminally charged and has 'unequivocally' denied the allegations.

Speaking of her latest novel, Her Heart for a Compass, the Duchess of York said writing during the Covid pandemic lockdown was therapeutic.

She said it boosted her self-esteem and has approached a French production company about movie rights.

Fergie opened up over wanting to see the book be made into a French movie starring Lea Seydoux as the heroine Margaret.
