Sarah, also known by her fans and friends as Fergie, is so excited for the arrival of Eugenie’s first child she has already prepared a present.
Speaking about her new book ‘The Adventures of Charlie, Blue and Larry the Lamp Post’, Fergie said: “This book will be dedicated to my first grandchild.”
The Duchess is already gearing up to welcome more little ones in her family.
She added: “I am bringing out one children’s book a month for the next 12 months to create a lovely library for my grandchildren.”
Fergie, who has been writing children’s book since the 1990s and in the midst of the first national lockdown launched a YouTube channel dedicated to entertaining children, said she sees herself as a “fantastic” grandmother.
