Sarah Ferguson, also known as Fergie, was once married to Prince Andrew and they have two children together, Princess Beatrice, 31, and Princess Eugenie, 29. Over the years, royal fans may have noticed her weight change and she has opened up about her diet in the past. She explained she dropped 3st 13lb and slimmed from 13st 5lb to a much slimmer 9st 6lb. How did she do it?

Don’t overtrain, and sleep and good nutrition are just as important.

On The Today Show in 2015, the Duchess explained she was “addicted” to food before shaping up.

She said: “My addiction was food. I used it to suppress my feelings and therefore every time I went through something – a salacious lie the media might tell about me – I ate to compensate.

“I got to a point where I just couldn’t bear looking at myself any minute longer. I was 190 pounds a year ago and I was miserable. You look at the top of the mountain, you think you’re never going to get there.”

Sarah worked as the face of Weight Watchers, which she claimed helped her slim down by a considerable amount.

At the time she said: “It was my difficulties with weight control that made Weight Watchers approach me to be their spokesperson.

“That relationship changed my life, marking an important turning point when my weight, health, personal life and finances all started to come under control.”

In 2016, the Mail Online reported she would eat foods including tomatoes, egg mayonnaise and mandarins to stay slim.

As well as changing her diet, Fergie previously spoke about personal trainer Josh Salzmann in a testimonial.

She wrote: “Fitness is mind, body and spirit, Josh always says…’Free your mind and your bottom will follow’… I personally believe in listening to your body and smart training.

“Don’t overtrain, and sleep and good nutrition are just as important. All of these values have been taught by Josh to me and I personally can say I have lost close to 50 pounds, by not overtraining and incorporating the above disciplines.”

Sarah is the mother of Princess Beatrice, who recently revealed she was engaged to Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, who apparently proposed with a ring worth £60,000. 

She shared her excitement over her daughter’s engagement by posting a series of snaps on Instagram.

Sarah wrote: “I know what a mother feels so I have tears of joy. I am so proud of this sensational news. Andrew and I are just the luckiest people ever to have two great sons in law.

“@princesseugenie took the colour photographs as my girls are so close. Beatrice and Edo wanted her to capture this special moment.”

Princess Eugenie ditched Sarah’s York tiara at her wedding but it is likely to be an option when Beatrice ties the knot.
