Sarah ‘Fergie’ Ferguson, Duchess of York, has revealed what the last words the late Queen Elizabeth II ever said to her were.
In the most recent episode of her podcast, Tea Talks with the Duchess and Sarah, Fergie was discussing ‘being herself’ and revealed:
“It’s the last thing that the Queen said to me. ‘Just be yourself, Sarah.”
“And she saw it. She just got so annoyed when I wasn’t being myself. And that’s probably when I got into all the pickles. But now I am myself, and I’m just so lucky to be able to be myself,” Fergie added.
The Duchess of York divulged this interesting tidbit just days before the one year anniversary of Queen Elizabeth’s death: September 8.
On the day of the anniversary, Fergie took to Instagram to pay tribute to the Queen but also to give an update on her beloved dogs.
“As we mourn a year on, we also celebrate the wonderful times we shared with Her Late Majesty the Queen. She entrusted me with the care of her corgis Sandy and Muick and I am delighted to say they are thriving,” she wrote.
Fergie has previously spoken publicly about how Queen Elizabeth’s death signified that she could be herself.
Earlier this year, in March, Fergie said during an interview with Good Morning America:
“I don’t know whether it’s the Queen passing that makes me think I can now openly say what I want to say without worrying I’m going to offend somebody.”
“I’m really, truly authentic Sarah now,” she said.
