Fergie’s brand new deal

Ferguson’s latest project has given her a reason to smile. According to Hello!, she just inked a deal with Australian publisher Serenity Press to release seven children’s books.

“We are delighted to welcome the duchess to our press,” said Serenity Press publisher Karen McDermott. “Her beautiful books are aligned with our core value of sharing nurturing stories that empower young minds. We cannot wait to bring these books into readers’ hands.”

Fergie, who is already an accomplished author, expressed her excitement about the new releases. At least three of the books — Arthur Fantastic, Genie Gems, and The Enchanted Oak Tree — are set to be released in mid-2020.

The celebs she’d like to be stuck on a desert island with

Ferguson hasn’t officially started her press tour yet but has given a few interviews recently and when she spoke to STYLE answered an age-old question many fans were curious about. That question was which three celebrities would she like to be stranded on a desert island with.

After confirming that her choices could be famous men both dead and alive the duchess chose legendary actors Cary Grant, Sidney Poitier, and Oscar winner Eddie Redmayne.

Fergie couldn’t stop at just three though and threw in David Beckham as well.

What Fergie has said about Prince Andrew’s scandal

When Fergie does begin her promotional tours it may feel like there is an elephant in the room with another question that many have been wondering about. However, the Duchess of York has already talked about her feelings on the drama surrounding her ex, Prince Andrew, after his “car crash” interview. Fergie opened up to Vogue Arabia about her former husband, who she still lives with and remains very close with today.

“It’s incredibly difficult,” Ferguson said of the media scrutiny.

She went on to say, “When I talk about Prince Andrew, I talk about family because the last six months have been hard on [Beatrice, Eugenie] and me … To see such a wonderful man go through such enormous pain. He is the best man I know. It’s just incredible what he has done for Britain, and it’s all nonsense [her voice raises as she alludes to the Epstein scandal], so I talk about familyhood, and I’m very strong about it.”

It was previously reported that Ferguson encouraged her ex to do the infamous BBC interview. However, a spokesperson for the duchess later confirmed that was not the case as she was not in the country at the time that occurred.
