The Duchess of York opened up about the decision not to attend King Charles’ Coronation.

In a recent interview, Sarah Ferguson opened up about why she chose not to attend King Charles’ Coronation, as E! News mentions here. The British author has been married to King Charles’ brother, Prince Andrew.


“No I’m not [going] actually cause it’s a state occasion. And being divorced, I don’t think you can have it both ways.” she said on Good Morning Britain. “So, I am divorced, and I’m really loving being divorced to my ex-husband—not from my ex-husband, it’s quite a differentiate. And also getting out there as a new novelist—second book, or for noveling—but also to really say, ‘It’s OK. I can start a new career now.’ And I really hope that many people watching will go, ‘Right, we get this. We can do this. Why are we saying we’re too old or we’re retiring?’ No! Get out there and seize it.'” she added.

Although she will not attend the event, she will still honor the important day. “I think that Charles and Camilla are doing an exceptional job at unifying the family. And just because I’m not there on the state occasion, but in private I can be there. And that’s a lovely feeling to be part of the family. It really is. As I said, you can’t have it both ways. You mustn’t sit on the fence. You’re either one in or out, but don’t muck around.” the Duchess continued.
