Sarah Ferguson Opens Up About What Made Her a Better Mother to Beatrice and Eugenie
Ahead of Princess Eugenie's October wedding to Jack Brooksbank, there's been a resurgence in interest about her side of the British royal family, especially her mother, Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York.
The Duchess once had a fraught relationship with the other members of the royal family following her divorce from Prince Andrew―she wasn't invited to Prince William and Kate Middleton's wedding in 2011―but recently she's been spotted at events like Royal Ascot and Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding in May.
Most recently, Sarah penned an op-ed forEvening Standardwhere she talked about how her charity Children in Crisis would be merging with the organization Street Child.
"When I founded Children in Crisis, I believed there were no borders for suffering, egos should play no part, and no race, creed, or accident of circumstance should stand in the way of a child’s right to an education," she wrote.
"That’s why I am so proud to hand the reins on to Tom [Dannatt, Street Child founder], and agree to change the name of the merged charity to Street Child," she added.
The Duchess also explained how the charity, which builds schools and trains teachers in conflict-affected areas, has made her a better mother to Eugenie and her older sister, Princess Beatrice.
"It has certainly made me a better mother to my daughtersBeatrice and Eugenie, giving me a sense of perspective, and allowing me to encourage them to use the platform they have to get involved in charitable work," she wrote. "It has probably saved my life, too, by giving me purpose through hard times."
Sarah also compared merging her charity with Street Child to Eugenie's upcoming wedding: "I see it a bit like Eugenie getting married later this year. She’s 28, and when your children get to that age, you let them do their thing." She added that Beatrice and Eugenie will be ambassadors for the charity.
