Yolk’s on them!
Sarah “Fergie” Ferguson recently reminisced about getting arrested with Princess Diana at her “hen party” — British speak for a bachelorette bash — ahead of her 1986 nuptials to Prince Andrew.
“It was extraordinary, because we went to a nightclub, of course, you go to a nightclub with the Princess of Wales,” the Duchess of York, 63, recalled on Tuesday’s episode of “The Kelly Clarkson Show.”
Ferguson said the pair decided to dress up as police officers for the festivities. But they quickly found themselves in the crosshairs for their get-ups.
“We sat down, and the waiter came up to us and said, ‘Excuse me, this is a members club. It’s for fun, and we don’t serve police officers here,’” Ferguson explained to Clarkson.
Ferguson said after they left the hotspot, Diana forgot she was in costume and got picked up by police for impersonating police.
“We were then arrested. … We go in the back of the van,” Ferguson continued, adding they hid their engagement rings once inside.
Diana saw “smoky bacon flavored crisps” in the vehicle, Ferguson remembered, and she “started taking them and eating them.”
That is, until an officer in the front seat shouted at her: “You can’t do that!”
Once authorities realized Diana and Ferguson were royals, they were free to go. Diana had married then-Prince Charles in 1981 before divorcing in 1996.
“She and I, we laughed a lot. We got into trouble a lot,” noted Ferguson, author of “A Most Intriguing Lady.” “You know what she used to do? She used to tell me the worst story, joke story, just before I had to be serious.”
In a 2021 People interview, Ferguson denied rumors of bad blood with Diana, whom she affectionately calls “Duch,” before her 1997 death.
“We promised each other we would always be together — there was never any daylight between us,” she said at the time. “But everybody wanted [to see a feud] because we were so strong together. People want to break something so strong.”
Ferguson and the disgraced Duke of York, 63, divorced in 1996. They share two daughters — Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie.
Although the ex-couple officially parted ways nearly 30 years ago, they have remained friends.
