  Sarah Ferguson struggled with 'major mental health problems' during tabloid attacks Sarah Ferguson struggled with 'major mental health problems' during tabloid attacks Long before the British scandal sheets began tearing into embattled royal Duchess Meghan, editors and reporters bullied Fergie over her weight and unfavourably compared her to her stylish sister-in-law, Princess Diana.

Sarah Ferguson knows what it’s like to face the harsh U.K. tabloids.

The Duchess of York married Prince Andrew, one of Queen Elizabeth II’s sons, in 1986. They welcomed a daughter named Princess Beatrice in 1988, followed by Princess Eugenie in 1990.

Ferguson, 61, and Andrew, 61, called it quits in 1996. But as a member of the British royal family, the duchess said it’s difficult to escape public scrutiny - no matter how hurtful it is.

"When they say you’re the ‘Duchess of Pork’ or you’re ‘frumpy Fergie,’ you start believing it," she told Town & Country for their September 2021 issue.

The press also pitted Ferguson against her pal Princess Diana.

"It was always that Diana was portrayed as the saint and I was portrayed as the sinner," she said. "Bad Fergie sold an awful lot of papers."

The outlet noted that Ferguson has experienced some public hiccups, like the time she was caught promising a News of the World reporter disguised as a sheik access to Andrew in exchange for nearly $700,000. Since then, she’s released a book and "embarked on a series of media apologies."

But these days, Ferguson is enjoying her time as a grandmother. Eugenie, 31, welcomed a son in February and Beatrice, 32, is expecting a baby this fall.

"It’s a very good moment because I’m free," Ferguson explained. "She’s still with me, that person who thinks she’s fat, ugly and disgusting, and she still has to have her hair done to talk to you, but she’s now not so vocal. The truth is, I am 61 years old and I’m free of the self-sabotaging Sarah."

As for Andrew, while he is dealing with his own woes regarding his controversial friendship with late financier Jeffrey Epstein, Ferguson said she and her ex-husband are devoted to their children.
