Sarah Ferguson was all smiles as she left Europe 1 radio studios in France on Tuesday.

Prince Andrew’s ex-wife, 62, who is commonly referred to as Fergie, could be seen clutching a beautiful bouquet of flowers and waving to well-wishers as she exited the building. 

The mother of Princess Eugenie, 31 and Princess Beatrice, 33, was giving an interview to Radio France’s Historiquement Votrre programme about her book Her Heart for a Compass, which is now available in a French version. 

The Duchess of York, who wore her fiery red locks loose, put on a stylish display in a houndstooth coat, which she paired with a plain black dress.

She completed her ensemble with flat, patent shoes and a bangle on her wrist, and added a pair of tights for warmth.

Sarah opted for a smokey eye and touch of blusher for the occasion, and added a nude-coloured lip.  

Historiquement Votre is a programme where journalists, author, royal experts and historians discuss historical anecdotes and the lives of well-known personalities.  

It is hosted by French royal expert Stephane Bern.

The Duchess of York’s Her Heart For A Compass, which draws on Sarah’s own life journey and incorporates research into her ancestry, is a fictional account of the life of the duchess’s great-great-aunt Lady Margaret Montagu Douglas-Scott.

It was co-written with Marguerite Kaye, who has written more than 50 historical romances set in a variety of eras. 

However, it received mostly negative reviews in the press after hitting the shelves in August.

Critics branded the book ‘boring’ and a ‘slog’ with an ‘insipid’ main character and a tone that jumps between ‘archaic and contemporary’. Almost all commented on the lack of sex and said it was at the ‘PG end’ of Mills & Boon.

But at the time, Sarah said she and co-author Margarete Kaye, who has written more than 60 books, remained ‘unified’ behind the work.  

She is due to publish her second historical romance novel, which will again be co-written with Kaye, in 2022.
