LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Princess Diana didn’t live long enough to see son Prince William wed, but according to fellow Royal and good friend Sarah Ferguson, the late Princess would have had fun getting to know Princess Catherine.
“What would Princess Diana think about Kate?,” Kit Hoover asked the Duchess of York of on Monday’s Access Hollywood Live.
“Well, she was just such a great lady, she was my best friend since I was 14. We had a lot of laughter. She had the best wit of anybody. I think she would have loved to gone on to have a little girl,” Sarah told Kit and Billy Bush. “Perhaps with Catherine, she would have [had] such fun going around doing all the things, fashion and helping her with all her clothes for this great, big long trip [to Canada and California].”
“Do you understand why you weren’t invited [to the Royal Wedding]? Was it the right thing for the royals not to invite you?” Billy asked.
“Yes completely,” the “Finding Sarah” star said. “I was so proud of them. Catherine is beautiful. She is serene like a swan and it’s such a lovely, new fresh start, young love, and it’s fabulous.”
Sarah revealed that she has yet to meet the Royal family’s newest member.
“I’ve never met her but I’ve seen her and I’m rather fascinated with how wonderful and she looks so beautiful and I just love the romance and the whole thing,” she added.
“Finding Sarah” airs Sundays on OWN at 9 PM.
