Prince Andrew’s ex-wife Sarah Ferguson, also known as Fergie, has shared a hilarious story about her and Princess Diana’s arrest after their royal wedding.
Ferguson, 63, told the story of the “hen party” that got him and Diana into trouble while appearing on “The Kelly Clarkson Show.”
Promoting her new novel The Most Interesting Lady, the Duchess of York recalled her eventful “hen party” in 1986, the British equivalent of a bachelor party, ahead of the wedding of Queen Elizabeth II’s second son, Prince Andrew.
Princess Beatrice and Eugenie’s mother, Diana, said the two had dressed up in police uniforms for a night out at the club, and the picture shows the two in uniform and caps with drinks on a table in front of them.
“We sat down and the waiter came to us and said, ‘Excuse me, this club is a member’s club.’ It’s for fun, we don’t serve police officers here,” he explained.
“Did they think you were a real police officer?” When Clarkson asked, Sarah said, “Yes!” he answered.
When the couple left the party, Diana broke her temper when she saw the woman in her dress. They were then arrested and even put in the back of a police van on charges of “misusing police officers”. But when Princess Diana spotted “smoky bacon flavored crisps” in the van, she “picked them up and started eating them”.
Sarah added: “The cop in the front seat — ‘You can’t do that!’ The women turned their rings in the police van, but the police realized who they were.’
The duchess became emotional as she recalled the time with Prince William and Harry’s mother when Diana was involved in the tragic car accident: “Her and I, we had a lot of laughs. We were in a lot of trouble,” Ferguson continued. “You know what he does?” He would tell me the worst story, a joke, before I was serious.
