Sarah Ferguson is currently in Australia to mark the 120th anniversary of the Ladies Pavilion at Sydney Cricket Ground and she stopped by the KIIS FM studios to chat to shock jock Kyle Sandilands and his co-host Jackie O.
The bizarre interview included live animals with Kyle bringing out a chicken at one point, but also delved into the Duchess’ life as a royal.
She revealed that there was one person who still scares her silly every time they come face to face: the Queen.
“Who was the last person you got tongue-tied over?” Jackie asked the Duchess of York.
“I always get really nervous before meeting the boss,” Ferguson replied, explaining that she meant her former mother-in-law, Queen Elizabeth II.
“But does she make you feel at ease and comfortable in her presence?” pressed Jackie.
“Oh of course, she’s brilliant. She makes you feel comfortable within the first five seconds,” Ferguson replied.
They also spoke about her relationship with her ex-husband Prince Andrew, with whom she’s remained close since their divorce.
When asked if there was a change of them ever getting back together, she gave a rather vague answer.
“Well, I always think — we’re divorced to each other right now … so we never really left each other,” she said.
“In the fairy tales that we’re brought up on, a prince comes along on his white charger … but what if the real true thing is to find peace and happiness in yourself? Then after that, see what happens.”
