Sarah Ferguson heaps praise on Meghan Markle after her latest feat

Former wife of Prince Andrew, Sarah Ferguson is voicing support for Meghan Markle, merely days after she reportedly backed the latter's fiercest critic, Piers Morgan following his reproval of Prince Harry's wife over their Oprah Winfrey interview. 

The Duchess of York, 61, congratulated the Duchess of Sussex after she published a new children’s book, titled The Bench.

In a chat with The Daily Mail, Fergie, who is an author herself as well, said: “To sit down and work hard to write a book, in any genre, should be supported and respected.”

“To encourage literacy in general not just children’s books, is a love of mine and to encourage more women to delve into their creative selves and get a book out is very well done,” she said.

Her remarks come not long after infamous British broadcaster Piers Morgan claimed that he received messages of support from Prince Andrew’s ex-wife over his refusal to apologize to the former Suits actor for his comments after the Oprah Winfrey interview—which eventually led to his resignation from Good Morning Britain.

Morgan wrote: “Not all Royal duchesses were as thrilled as Meghan ‘Pinocchio’ Markle to see me leave GMB. ‘People have said how much they miss your morning joy and humour,’ texted Sarah, Duchess of York, ‘get back out there!’”

“Perhaps we should start a new breakfast show together … ‘Morgy and Fergie in the Morning’, anyone?” he added.
