Sarah Ferguson has previously declared that she never wants to be like Princess Diana and has labeled the Princess of Wales a “goody two shoes.”

In the documentary “Diana and Sarah: Royal Wives of Windsor,” Ferguson’s behavior was reportedly dubbed as unconventional and familiar after she wed Prince Andrew. But the Duchess of York was determined to survive the icy disapproval of the Buckingham Palace.

The mom of two’s confidence to handle the situation and go “yahoo” at the establishment was oftentimes shown through the way she dressed. Ferguson was known for wearing short skirts and for baring her legs.

This was one of the ways Ferguson made sure that she was different from Princess Diana. The mom of Prince William and Prince Harry was known for her traditional dressing. Princess Diana didn’t also deliberately break royal protocols like Ferguson did, which made Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie’s mom think that she was a “goody two shoes.”

In related news, Ferguson recently hinted on her friendship with Princess Diana years after the latter’s death. While speaking with Piers Morgan, the Duchess of York said that she thinks Princess Diana would be so proud of her son’s wives.

“She’d really be just so proud. Even before they got married, Diana would have been just literally going ‘I can’t believe these boys have done so well.’ They are such a credit to her. She had this enormous compassion and I honestly think she’d be so proud of the wonderful Meghan and Catherine as well,” she said (via Harper’s Bazaar).

Ferguson also revealed that she thought of Princess Diana the minute she stepped out of the car upon arriving at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle to attend Prince Harry and Markle’s royal wedding on May 19.

“As you can see, the minute I started to walk, I was thinking of Diana in my heart. And I was thinking of my mom. And my father would say ‘the show goes on, get on with it.’ He always taught me to walk tall. And as I came round the corner which made me cry was the kind people that had been so lovely,” she said (via Express).
