Despite this, when Ferguson said she phoned Andy Harries, the series’ executive producer, to offer her royal knowledge, she was cast aside.

Speaking to Town and Country magazine, the duchess mentioned that she wanted to help the show further develop her character, who only made a brief appearance in season four.

“Hello? Where is Fergie?” she jokingly told the outlet. “I said to him [Harries], ‘Why can’t I help my character?’” she adds.
