Her reaction to Princess Eugenie’s engagement

The Duchess of York was also overjoyed when Princess Eugenie got engaged to Jack Brooksbank in 2018.

While it is not sure that the mother-of-two cried, her excitement was evident in the different non-stop tweets she made when the news of their engagement broke.

Sarah shared several photos of the couple, turning them into joyful memes with love quotes. On one of the photos, Ferguson wrote:

“A total embrace of goodness and joy. We love Jack and I am so excited to have a son, a brother, and a best friend. Eugenie is one of the finest people I know and so together it will be pure harmony.”

Having your kids find their soul mates is the fulfillment every mother wishes for. Luckily, Sarah Ferguson got to experience that in the space of a year!
