“Diana would be very proud of her sons and I think they’re exceptional, exceptional boys with exceptional wives and fabulous children and so I think that she would be going, ‘YES!’” Ferguson shared.
When asked about what Diana would have really thought of Harry’s bombshell decision alongside his wife 梅根·马克尔, Ferguson didn’t think twice.
“I think that what she would have been is very proud of very boys standing tall and firm,” 她说. “They’re very like her and I think that she would be proud.”
Ferguson, who shared a close friendship with Diana, added that the princess would have loved being a grandmother.
“哦，我的天啊, can you imagine the grandmother races that we would have together?” said Ferguson, 如出口报价. “The parties… I would bounce her off the bouncy castle, 这是肯定的. Although she would outrun me, she always outran me. She was like a gazelle. 而且当然, 你懂, her tinkering laughter… what a beautiful woman.”
“And I’m glad we’re still talking about her and I’m glad there’s a statute to her and that we honor her,” 她补充说.
