Fergie doesnt expect Coronation invite – and says she prefers to watch it on TV

Sarah "Fergie" Ferguson, the Duchess of York, has revealed she doesn't expect to be invited to King Charles III's coronation next month.

The 63 year old chatted all things Royal and about her family and two daughters during an appearance on Loose Women today (Wednesday 5 April), and admitted that she would prefer to watch the ceremony on TV anyway.

Sharing her plans with the panel, which included Coleen Nolan and Christine Lampard, Sarah, who used to be married to Prince Andrew, the Duke of York, was all smiles.

“I personally will be having a little tea room and coronation chicken sandwich and putting out the bunting, that’s what I’m going to be doing," the Royal said. "Because that would make me very happy.

“I also love to watch it on telly because you hear a lot on telly, the commentators' are always good and then everyone, all the family come back.

The Duchess, who wore a navy blue velvet blazer, a bright pink top and a black skater skirt for her appearance, went on to say that she doesn't expect to be included in all the important royal occasions because she's now divorced from Prince Andrew.

"You can’t have it both ways, you can’t be divorced and then say, ‘I want this…’ [You’re in] or you’re out," she offered honestly.

The Royal continued: “I think it’s really great to be supportive big time and then when all the family come home, I know all the ins and outs from commentators on television!

"And there’s a little old people’s home nearby and I’ve got a little van… It’s a three wheeler… Maybe I should take the corgis down there, with the bunting and sandwiches…"

Discussing the Coronation invitations, which were first revealed last night, Sarah recognised that it's "such a huge day for the nation and the globe, and the world".

The stunning design showcases lots of things the King is passionate about, including environmental issues, and there's lots of beautiful little animals in the print.

As well as mice and rabbits, there's also a traditional Green Man design, an ancient figure from British folklore who symbolises spring and rebirth.

Amongst the variety of flowers and plants on the invitation, there's also a number of thistles, pointing to the importance of Scotland and Balmoral to the King and his late mother, Queen Elizabeth II.

Asked to give her opinion on Charles becoming the new monarch and Camilla being called the Queen for the first time, Sarah shared with the Loose Women panel: "I think he’s going to be an amazing King and with the lovely Camilla by his side, I think it’s great that it’s the Queen, it’s not the ‘Queen Consort’, it’s the Queen.

"I think she has been there tirelessly with him too, they’ve both been together and I think the work he’s done on environmental issues, and now we say well done, but we didn’t many years ago.

"I think it’s going to be a phenomenal day," she added excitedly.

Loose Women continues weekdays at 12.30pm on ITV.
