Sarah Ferguson just revealed the touching reason why she wore a green suit and skirt to Princess Eugenie’s royal wedding on Oct. 12.

While speaking with Daily Mail, the 59-year-old mom of two said that she used a vintage Manolo Blahnik handbag, which was once owned by her late mother, Susan Barrantes. The accessory was what inspired Ferguson’s outfit to the wedding.

“Mom had carried the handbag at my wedding to Prince Andrew and the admission tickets were still in it. They were green – which was why I wore green on the day,” she said.

Upon her arrival at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle, Ferguson was photographed in her Emma Louise Design dress, as well as her quirky Jess Collett hat. She was all smiles while waving to the crowds and while standing beside Princess Beatrice.

Princess Eugenie arrived at the chapel a few minutes later with her dad Prince Andrew. At that time, Ferguson and Princess Beatrice were already inside the church waiting for the ceremony to commence.

Less than a month after Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank’s wedding, the Duchess of York opened up about the special day and her relationship with Prince Andrew. Even though the ex-couple divorced in 1996, Prince Andrew and Ferguson have remained close friends. In fact, they still live together at the Royal Lodge.

When asked if they have plans to remarry, Ferguson said (via Express), “We are divorced to each other, not from each other. We’re the happiest divorced couple in the world.”

The mom of two also said that she and Prince Andrew regularly tell each other that they love each other. “We both say it. We are completely compatible,” she added.

And days after her interview, Ferguson paid tribute to her ex-husband on her social media to commemorate the Remembrance Day Service last Sunday.

“To all those who died for our freedom, you will always be in our hearts. We must never forget,” she captioned the snap of Prince Andrew, Prince Harry, and Prince William.
