Sarah "Fergie" Ferguson shared her "excitement" at being a first time grandmother on Monday's episode of The One Show.

The Duchess Of York, 61, appeared on the BBC One programme to talk about her new book Her Heart For A Compass: A Novel, which was published on 28 July, with hosts Alex Jones and Gethin Jones.

However, chat soon turned to her grandson August, six months, after her daughter Princess Eugenie welcomed her first child with husband Jack Brooksbank in February.

The Duchess Of York sweetly said that she was "so proud" of her daughter as she is a "great mother" and she shared her happiness at being a grandmother as her other girl, Princess Beatrice, is expecting a child with husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi.


Fergie said: "I've had sisters, daughters, and now it's Barbies put to one side. Now I've got to get into cars and trucks and engines… although, it has to be said, if lovely August wants Barbies, we will bring the Barbies back out.

"I think in life, we never judge anybody or anything, just go for the heart. It is really exciting and of course it is my age group."

Praising her daughter, Fergie sweetly continued: "I'm so lucky, Eugenie is a great mum, everyone says: 'You must be so excited about your grandson' and I say: 'No, I'm so proud of my daughter.' She's a great mother and Beatrice is about to…

"She's already got Wolfie [her stepson], who she is really good to and he's five."

Eugenie and Jack welcomed August Philip Hawke Brooksbank on 9 February at the Portland Hospital in London.

While Beatrice announced in May that she was expecting a child with husband Edoardo in an official statement shared on social media.

It read: "Her Royal Highness Princess Beatrice and Mr Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi are very pleased to announce that they are expecting a baby in autumn this year.

"The Queen has been informed and both families are delighted with the news."
