What did Sarah Ferguson say?

Sarah, 61, appeared on the show to promote her new novel, Her Heart for a Compass.

During the chat, Christine prompted Sarah over the arrival of Princess Eugenie’s son August.

The host then mentioned Andrew, saying: “You’re incredibly close to the girls – and Prince Andrew as well, you’ve always had this incredible co-parenting relationship.”

Prince Andrew is such good man, he’s a decent man

Sarah responded: “Prince Andrew is such good man, he’s a decent man, a thoroughly good man.

“We did co-parent very well, hence the reason why our girls are very solid and feet on the ground.

“But now as a grandfather, oh my goodness, he’s really good!”
