Sarah Ferguson Reveals the Reason Why She Feels 'Liberated' After Queen Elizabeth's Death

“I think also the Queen dying has sort of liberated me a bit. My sense of purpose has always been, for 62 years, 63 years, to be very loyal and to uphold Her Majesty’s values,” she told ET. “She was more a mother to me than my own mother, really, and therefore now she’s not there anymore, I feel as though maybe I can be free to be Sarah. I feel as though I’m liberated from my own mental shackles.”

With the shackles removed, Sarah says she now feels free to be her authentic self. “I don’t think I’ve shown anybody the real Sarah that you’re seeing today. I’m very authentic today… There’s nothing holding me back now. I sort of feel free to be myself,” she said.

Sarah has just released today (March 7) a new historical romance novel, “A Most Intriguing Lady.”

The book is a “sweeping, romantic compulsively readable historical saga about a Duke’s daughter—the perfect Victorian lady—who secretly moonlights as an amateur sleuth for high society’s inner circle.”

“Pacy, romantic, and fun, ‘A Most Intriguing Lady’ documents one remarkable woman’s ability to be both the perfect lady, and a perfectly talented detective…and, of course, to find love too,” the book’s description concludes.

A few months ago, Sarah addressed speculation that she offered to consult on season five of The Crown.
