Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle have benefited from Sarah Ferguson’s rebellion in a unique way.

Alice Dear, a journalist for Express, the Duchesses benefit has to do with the strict protocol surrounding speeches. In the 1987 documentary “Diana and Sarah: Royal Wives of Windsor,” it was revealed that Prince Andrew and Ferguson rewrote their speech during their royal tour in Canada.

During their farewell dinner, the Duke of York stepped down from the stage and gave Ferguson the opportunity to have the last word. Ferguson’s speech was dubbed as somewhat comical.

“I could not go through a whole tour letting my dear husband for a year and a day do all the public speaking. So we agreed, for once, that I should have the last word tonight,” she said.

Dear claimed that this move from Ferguson, which was a first that time, paved the way for Middleton and Markle to give their own speeches at public functions. The Duchess of Sussex, who just wed Prince Harry on May 19, has proven how comfortable she is in speaking to massive groups of people in various engagements.

Most recently, the “Suits” alum gave an emotional address at the University of the South Pacific in Suva during her overseas tour of Australia, Fiji, the Kingdom of Tonga, and New Zealand.

Middleton, on the other hand, has been giving speeches since she wed Prince William in 2011.

In related news, Ferguson has reportedly created her own fairytale even after her and Prince Andrew’s divorce in 1996. In 2013, the Duchess of York told Cheltenham Literature Festival that her ex-husband is still her handsome prince.

“It’s lovely that we are such a family and the story has a happy ending all the time. We really respect each other and we honor each other and it’s just lovely to have that sense of integrity to what we believe is right – to what is good and compassionate and love and kindness. And that’s the way we are,” she said (via E! News).
