Sarah Ferguson, the ex-wife of Prince Andrew, is speaking out this week to say that she is “100% certain” that he is telling the truth about his role in the Jeffrey Epstein scandal.
“I want him [Andrew] to come through this. I want him to win,” Sarah said, according to Daily Mail.
When asked if she is completely sure of Andrew’s innocence, Sarah said, “No question. I know everything about him. I think he is an extraordinary person.”
Sarah was married to Andrew from 1986 until they divorced in 1996. She described them as “the happiest divorced couple in the world” and added that while they live under the same roof at Royal Lodge, Windsor, they each have their own rooms.
“We support each other like pillars of strengths,” she said.
While Andrew has admitted to being friends with Epstein, who committed suicide while awaiting trial for various sex crimes in 2019, he has long denied playing any role in his crimes.
Sarah defended Andrew as a “good man” in another recent interview.
“Prince Andrew is just such a good man, he’s a really thoroughly good man,” she said. “He’s a very gentle man, he’s a really good father and we did co-parent very well, hence the reason our girls are very solid and have their feet on the ground.”
“But now as a grandfather he’s really good, he can go for hours talking about football, and those things,” Sarah continued. “It’s a joy to see him really shine as a grandfather.”
When asked about the life she envisions for her and Andrew’s two daughters, Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie, Sarah said, “Nobody has a normal life… what is normal?”
“After the pandemic, what is normal?” she continued. “Social media’s ramping out of control. Trolling’s terrible. The cancel culture is huge. The cancel culture is a major problem.”
“So what is normal?” Sarah added. “The way I look at normal for my girls and for me is to keep researching and looking at who you are. If you love what you’re doing, then do it. If you don’t, then change it.”
In the end, Sarah feels grateful for the life she’s led herself.
“I’m the luckiest girl,” she said. “If you were standing up at my eulogy, it’s just the most extraordinary life. I have had the most extraordinary life.”
