In a recently resurfaced interview, Sarah Ferguson reflected on her 'mesmeric' wedding day to Prince Andrew - revealing that the feeling of being a royal bride is 'unfathomable'.
The Express have revisited the quotes from a 2011 TV interview Sarah did with Piers Morgan.
During the chat, the TV host asked the Duchess of York what it was really like on her wedding day at Westminster Abbey, all the way back in 1986.
She told Piers, "You are taken with such a wave of energy, that it is just mesmeric, it is just extraordinary.
"And you're so in love. Anyway, it's your wedding day. Like every bride's wedding day, it's a special day.
“And you've got a beautiful dress on. But you're standing there with the man you love.
Referencing the enormous crowds that came out to cheer on the newlyweds, Fergie said, "And then there are people out there who are wishing you so well. And it's just extraordinary.
“It's just unfathomable. You can't explain it.”
In the resurfaced interview, the Duchess of York also stated that she married for nothing other than love - and affectionately called Prince Andrew 'my man'.
She told Piers, “We married for total love. And when I went up that aisle, I married my man.
“I also married a sailor, and I got a prince. But my man was the most important thing for me, Piers, because nothing was more important than him.”
Sarah and Andrew enjoyed a happy marriage for some years, until troubles started to appear in 1991, soon after the pair had welcomed their two daughters, Beatrice and Eugenie.
The couple eventually separated in 1992 - but didn't officially divorce until four years latr, in 1996.
However, the Duke and Duchess of York have maintained an enduring friendship since their split, with Fergie still living with her ex-husband at their former home, Royal Lodge - where they raised their family.
Sarah has, since then, continued to praise Prince Andrew, explaining that they are still great friends.
In a 2013 interview, she confessed, "He's still my handsome prince, he'll always be my handsome prince."
It's likely that Sarah's attendance at the most recent royal wedding, that of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, also conjured up some poignant memories of her own special day all those years ago.
And it seems the wedding day certainly left the Duchess emotional, with her admitting to BANG Showbiz that she cried during the Duke and Duchess of Sussexes nuptials.
She confessed, "It was such an honour, just beautiful.
"To see love like that is nothing better. That makes you cry."
"I thought it was fantastic, I thought the whole wedding was a complete joy. The music was beautiful. It was goosebumping, I'm very lucky."
