Sarah Ferguson Follows in Footsteps of King Charles and Prince William

Sarah Ferguson, the former wife of Prince Andrew, has taken a page from the book of King Charles and Prince William by commemorating the 80th anniversary of the D-Day landings. On Instagram, she shared a touching photo of King Charles with veterans, accompanied by a heartfelt message.

“Today we mark 80 years since the D-Day landings. We remember and honor the service and sacrifice of all those who, with our Allies, turned the tide of World War Two and changed history by rescuing us from tyranny,” she wrote.

Ferguson, the mother of Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice, added, “The debt we owe them is eternal and must never be forgotten. We will remember them. #DDay80 #DDayanniversary #DDayveterans.”

Earlier, from June 5th to June 6th, 2024, King Charles, Queen Camilla, and Prince William, along with other royal family members, attended a series of events to honor the sacrifices made during the historic military operation.

Prince George, at just ten years old, seems to be following in the artistic footsteps of his mother, Princess Kate, his grandfather King Charles III, and his late great-grandfather Prince Philip. In December 2022, George delighted royal fans with a festive watercolour painting of a reindeer in the snow, complete with two colorful robins.

The painting was shared on the Prince and Princess of Wales’s official Instagram page, where it quickly garnered praise. “You have a budding artist there!!” commented one fan, while another noted, “like King Charles!”

Hannah Dale, the artist who inspired George’s painting, told HELLO!, “He’s obviously got talent. He has an eye for form and color. It was lovely to see.”

King Charles himself is an accomplished painter, with his work first exhibited at Windsor Castle in 1977. In 2022, 70 of his watercolours were displayed at The Garrison Chapel in Chelsea, London, featuring landscapes from Scotland, Provence, and Tanzania.

Charles has said of his painting, “You become increasingly aware of things that may have escaped your attention previously – things like the quality of light and shade, of tone and texture, and the shape of buildings in relation to the landscape.”

Prince Philip also had a talent for painting, often creating landscapes and even a portrait of the late Queen Elizabeth II. He gifted Princess Eugenie a bespoke painting for her wedding, which she proudly displays in her London home.

Princess Kate, who studied art history at the University of St Andrews, has also inspired her children with her passion for art. In 2021, she shared an impressive Scottish landscape on Instagram, thanking the people and communities they visited in Scotland.

Kate is a royal patron for the National Portrait Gallery, The Foundling Museum, and The Royal Photographic Society, further showcasing her dedication to the arts.

Meanwhile, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle recently shared their first post on their newly-launched website after King Charles officially handed over the role of Colonel-in-Chief of the Army Air Corps to Prince William. The post, titled “THANK YOU NIGERIA,” detailed their memorable trip to Nigeria, including a cultural reception in Lagos and a polo match fundraiser.

Sarah Ferguson, affectionately known as Fergie, has also been in the news for her health. She recently thanked her supporters on Instagram following her breast cancer diagnosis. “Thank you so much for your kindness and support,” she captioned a photo of a vibrant pink flower.

Fergie was diagnosed with an early form of breast cancer during a routine mammogram screening and has since undergone successful surgery. She expressed immense gratitude to the medical staff and emphasized the importance of regular screenings.

In a recent episode of her ‘Tea Talks’ podcast, recorded a day before her surgery, Fergie shared how her sister Jane encouraged her to get the screening. “Thank you, Jane,” she said, highlighting the importance of early detection.

Fergie also referenced her father, who died of prostate cancer, underscoring the significance of early detection and regular health check-ups.
