‘Happy days with Mum (always in my heart) my sister Jane and Puff the Poodle on a lake in Scotland. She died far too young .. we miss you Mum,’ she captioned the image.

Susan died in 1998 following a car crash in Argentina, just one year after the death of Princess Diana.

The Duchess of York’s mother earned the nickname ‘the bolter’ and caused a stir in British social circles when she eloped with Argentinian polo player Hector Barrantes in 1975, a year after her divorce from Fergie’s father Sir Ronald Ferguson.  

Sir Ronald died in 2003 following a heart attack in Basingstoke, Hampshire.
