Sarah Ferguson has said that Princess Diana would have been the "naughtiest, funniest" grandmother had she lived to meet the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's son Prince George. Sarah, a close friend of the late princess, spoke fondly about Diana, her sons William and Harry, and Duchess Kate during an appearance on The Meredith Vieira Show this week.
"She would have just been the naughtiest, funniest and the best ever, just because she loved her boys so much and she would be so proud of all of them and what they've achieved," she said, when asked what kind of a grandmother Diana would have been.
In April, the royal couple will welcome their second child together – and Sarah was asked about reports in the US that they are expecting a little girl they will name after Diana. "Ummm, no," she replied. "I have not heard that."
During her appearance, Sarah spoke briefly to again defend her ex-husband Prince Andrew, who she divorced in 1996 after ten years of marriage. "Knowing him as I know him, he's one of the greatest men I've ever met in my life and my best friend and great father to my children," she said.
"Buckingham Palace put out a denial on his behalf, that's how it works with the Royal Family. They stand by that denial. There is nothing more to be said."
