The early years of her life inside the Royal Family will be dissected, including the backlash Fergie received from the Queen and Prince Philip after the infamous 'toe-sucking' incident. The year-old soared in popularly after marrying the Queen's son Prince Andrew in , and alongside her sister-in-law Princess Diana, the pair sparked a new interest in the Royal Family. She and Diana, however, endured a difficult relationship at times, and despite their closeness away from the spotlight, Fergie was heartbreakingly not on speaking terms with Diana before she died in A documentary, The Royal Family at War, detailed what happened in the fallout, and how they remained friends despite both separating from their husbands in , and divorcing them in Author Robert Jobson, the Evening Standard's royal editor, told the programme that Fergie's autobiography My Story - published 25 years ago - would play a part in the friends' split.
Andrew and Fergie separated in but were still married and spending time together with the rest of the royals at Balmoral Castle in Scotland when the scandalous photos made front page news. Not long after that, Kay said he got calls from both Bryan and Fergie, who were curious and concerned about what the papers were going to run. The queen was reportedly furious after seeing the images and Fergie was told to leave the Scottish estate and go back to London. The duchess still remains close with her ex-husband and the queen eventually forgave her, but her relationship with some other members of the royal family was ruined.
