Sarah Ferguson Just Made Her Triumphant Return to Social Media


The royal family members have remained relatively quiet on social media ever since Prince Philip's passing on April 9. While the royal family Instagram account was used to honor the late Duke of Edinburgh for ten days following his death, members of the family have only recently been returning full-time to the spotlight.

One of those figures is Sarah Ferguson, the former wife of Prince Andrew and former daughter-in-law to the duke. The Duchess of York has been off her Instagram and YouTube accounts for weeks following the late duke's passing, but she finally shared an Instagram story earlier today to promote her Storytime with Fergie and Friends.

In the Instagram story, Ferguson wrote: "4 p.m. @storytimewithfergieandfriends on @youtube. When We Went Wild by @isabella.tree. Swipe up for channel #storytimewithfergieandfriends @alliratee @quartokids @quarto.knows."

The Duchess of York launched her book project in the spring of 2020 when the coronavirus pandemic first began. In daily videos meant to entertain children, Fergie donned elaborate costumes and constructed colorful sets while reading a variety of children's books. She also included some high-profile guests along the way, including her daughters Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie. Her efforts were not wasted, as the videos quickly garnered thousands of views in only a matter of weeks, and her YouTube page has almost 10,000 subscribers.

While Ferguson has not commented on Prince Philip's death publicly, her youngest daughter Eugenie posted a loving tribute to the late duke, saying, "Dearest Grandpa,⁣ We all miss you...I remember learning how to cook, how to paint, what to read. I remember laughing at your jokes and asking about your spectacular life and service in the navy. ⁣I remember incinerating the sausages and you swooping in to save the day.⁣ I remember your hands and your laugh and your favourite beer. I will remember you in your children, your grandchildren and great grandchildren. ⁣Thank you for your dedication and love for us all and especially Granny, who we will look after for you."
