After the Duke and Duchess spoke about Sarah Ferguson’s warmth and openness to them, the Duchess of York, aka Fergie, reportedly denies having “really met” Meghan.

The couple mentioned Ferguson in Harry’s memoir, “Spare,” and in their Oprah Winfrey interview, saying the Duchess of York showed Meghan to curtsey to the late Queen Elizabeth ahead of their first meeting, as per MailOnline.

According to the publication, Harry and Meghan claim Ferguson has been one of the friendlier members of the royal family and recalled having drinks with her at her home in The Royal Lodge. 

In an interview with The Telegraph, the Duchess of York, however, said she ‘doesn’t know’ Meghan and “haven’t really met her.”

She did, however, per the publication, confirmed to have spoken to Meghan at the late Queen’s funeral, saying: “She looked absolutely beautiful. I think she is beautiful.”

Meghan recalls the moment she met the late Queen, saying:

“I didn’t know I was going to meet her until moments before. We were in the car, and we were going to the Royal Lodge for lunch, and he [Harry] was like, “Oh, my grandmother is here, she’s gonna be there after church.”.

“‘Right in front of the house we practiced and ran in. Fergie ran out and said, ‘Do you know how to curtsy?'” she recalled.

In his book, Harry said he hoped Fergie would be the first member of the family Meghan would meet as his girlfriend.
