Moreover, Diana was the one who set up Fergie with Prince Andrew. They met each other when Diana invited Fergie to the party at Windsor Castle, held after the Ascot Races back in 1985.

Unfortunately, they didn’t talk to each other for quite a long time before Diana’s death. Nevertheless, during the interview with Harper’s Bazaar, Sarah Ferguson said that Diana was looking for her the day before she died, and wanted to talk about something:

I really miss Diana. I loved her so much. Diana was one of the quickest wits I knew; nobody made me laugh like her. But because we were like siblings—actually, we were fourth cousins and our mothers, who went to school together, were also best friends—we rowed. And the saddest thing, at the end, we hadn't spoken for a year, though I never knew the reason, except that once Diana got something in her head....I tried, wrote letters, thinking whatever happened didn't matter, let's sort it out. And I knew she'd come back. In fact, the day before she died she rang a friend of mine and said, 'Where's that Red? I want to talk to her.
