Sarah “Fergie” Ferguson has endured many awkward moments since she entered public life upon becoming romantically involved with Prince Andrew. The couple, who married in 1986 and were divorced in 1996, remain close friends (per People), and were on hand to celebrate their youngest daughter Princess Eugenie’s marriage to Jack Brooksbank in 2018. Also present at the royal nuptials, and serving in the role of bridesmaid, was Theodora “Teddy” Williams, the 6-year-old daughter of English singer/songwriter Robbie Williams and his wife, Ayda Field.
The awkward moment, which was caught on video, occurred when Ferguson and the little girl crossed paths outside of St. George’s Chapel after the ceremony. As Ferguson made her way down the steps, Williams inquired, “Are you the queen?” to which Ferguson replied, “No, I’m not” and kept walking. Williams shouted out a follow-up question, “You’re a princess?” to which Ferguson quickly replied “yes” before continuing down the steps. Despite the mother of the bride’s apparent discomfort, Williams, who seemed to finally be satisfied, adorably raised her bouquet into the air as Ferguson jumped into a waiting car.
