Sarah spoke with pride about her role as a mother. In a new, wide-ranging interview, the Duchess of York spoke about how important her daughters Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie are to her.

She told French magazine Madame Figaro: “My daughters are my priority, I am always listening, I never miss a call.”

Sarah continued: “If there’s something I’ve done well in my life, it’s being a mother.”

Sarah, who is also known as Fergie among her fans and friends, added her attention to her daughters may be the result of having been left behind by her own mother.

She said: “Probably because I haven’t really had one myself.

“One day, I’ll write a book about my mother, who ran away with an Argentinian polo player when I was 11.”

The Duchess’ mother Susan caused a stir in social circles in the Seventies after leaving her family behind to move to Argentina with professional polo player Héctor Barrantes.

Sarah and her elder sister Jane Louisa were then brought up by their father Ronald Ferguson, who divorced his wife in 1974.

Sarah, who told the magazine she has nicknamed herself and her daughters “the Tripod” due to their close ties, has often voiced her pride and admiration for her daughters.

In mid-September, she shared with Good Housekeeping a personal letter addressing Eugenie and Beatrice.

She said: “Every day I thank the universe for allowing me to be your mother.

“You have always been the blood in my veins. From the time you were wee tots, you made my life complete.

“I look at how full of humility, laughter and joy you are in your hearts, and I marvel at you both.”

In this letter, Fergie also spoke about becoming a grandmother and how she loves her new role.

She said: “I smile from my heart every day, because that is how it feels to be a granny.

“I have so many fun ideas of things to do with my grandchildren, and of course they’re a perfect new audience for all my children’s books.”

Sarah first became a grandmother on February 9, when Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank welcomed to the world their son August Philip Hawke.

A few days after her return home from The Portland Hospital, where she was also born in 1990, Princess Eugenie shared on Instagram a snap of herself and Jack holding their newborn baby.

In mid-September, her elder sister Princess Beatrice also welcomed her first child, Sienna Elizabeth.

Beatrice and her husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi have decided against sharing a picture of the child for the time being.

However, upon announcing her name, the couple also shared a photo of the footprints of Sienna taken at birth.

The pair are also the proud parents of Christopher Woolf, known as Wolfie, son of Edoardo and his ex-partner Dara Huang.

Opening up on her relationship with the five-year-old boy, Beatrice had previously called him her “bonus son” rather than a stepson.
