In her podcast, Tea Talks with the Duchess and Sarah, Sarah Ferguson opens up about her personal life and post-surgery struggles after being diagnosed with breast cancer. While discussing her journey, the Duchess candidly shares her experience with “FOMO” (Fear of Missing Out) and the complexities of family dynamics. She reveals that she often feels FOMO when her two daughters, Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice, spend time with their in-laws and their own young families. However, she also expresses concern for the other grandparents, thinking about their absence when the grandchildren are at her home, Royal Lodge. Sarah acknowledges the importance of sharing these precious moments and ensuring everyone feels included.
Sarah Ferguson’s love for her grandchildren is evident. She thoroughly enjoys spending time with Eugenie’s sons, August and Ernie, as well as Beatrice’s daughter, Sienna. As a doting grandmother, Sarah treasures their visits and cherishes the memories they create together at Royal Lodge. However, during her podcast, the Duchess discloses that her daughters are currently on vacation, and due to her post-surgery recovery from a mastectomy, she was unable to join them. Despite not being physically present, Sarah will undoubtedly receive photo updates, keeping her connected to her grandchildren even from afar.
Ever wondered what it’s like when grandchildren visit a royal residence? In an interview with The Sun’s Fabulous magazine, Sarah Ferguson shares her preparations. She explains that every time her grandchildren come to Royal Lodge, the furniture is cleared out to create a safe and spacious environment for them to play. Although she doesn’t specifically mention the reason behind this rearrangement, it is assumed that it allows the little ones to have ample space to run around freely without any potential obstacles or hazards.
Sarah Ferguson’s affection for her newest grandchild is evident in a fan letter she recently released online. In the letter, she encloses a heartwarming photo of baby Ernest George Ronnie Brooksbank peacefully sleeping in his Moses basket. The Duchess, known for her handwritten letters, decorates the border with a jungle-themed design painted in watercolors. She expresses her joy and love for little Ernest, referring to him as their “new little lion cub.” The nickname showcases the bond Sarah feels and the happiness he brings to their hearts.
Sarah Ferguson’s openness and honesty about her experiences as a grandmother, her struggles, and her emotions provide a relatable insight into the world of family dynamics. Her candid discussions around FOMO and the importance of including all family members are a reminder that even within royal circles, these concerns exist. Sarah’s deep love for her grandchildren is evident in her actions, such as preparing Royal Lodge for their visits and the endearing nickname she has bestowed upon the youngest member of the family.
