Sarah Ferguson Opens Up About Mental Health Struggles and Support from Princess Diana

In July 2021, Sarah “Fergie” Ferguson spoke with PEOPLE about her mental health, which had been significantly affected by the cruel headlines and tabloid scrutiny she faced in the UK when she first gained public attention in 1985. She revealed that she had experienced major mental health problems due to the trauma and had believed the hurtful words written about her. The Duchess acknowledged the self-shame she had felt and had even apologized to her young daughters for the negative impact it had on her.

She described the experience as “dark” and mentioned working on overcoming self-sabotage. Fergie also discussed how she and her close friend, Princess Diana, were often pitted against each other in the media. While Diana was portrayed as beautiful, Fergie was often depicted as “fat” and “frumpy.” She expressed that both she and Diana had their own mental health issues and supported each other during those challenging times. Fergie emphasized the importance of remaining strong together despite the negative portrayals in the press.
