Sarah Ferguson compares herself to Jennifer Aniston amid YouTube appearances -‘I’m a star’ | Royal | News

The Duchess of York, 61, has written a number of children’s books and just recently released her first book targeted at an older audience. Fergie has said her children’s books have made her a star amongst the younger generation.

According to the Duchess, Wolfie, five, who is Princess Beatrice’s husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi’s son, thinks his step-grandmother is a “star”.

“For him… I’m very cool,” she said on the Femail Half-Hour podcast.

“He thinks I’m a star because he sees me on television, on YouTube.”

She also added the five-year-old sees her as the “Jennifer Aniston of his life”.

“So much so, we’ve signed our next book deal.”

The book is co-written by Marguerite Kaye and is based on the life of Fergie’s great-great-aunt, Lady Margaret Montagu Douglas Scott.

According to insiders, the pair wish to turn the unreleased book into a TV series.

“[Sarah’s team] is already in talks with at least one streaming service and will be approaching others once a 360-degree treatment of the book is finalised,” a source told Variety.

“Everyone involved is looking at the success of Bridgerton as a demonstration of the immense appeal of period drama on streaming services.”
