The plans for Princess Eugenie’s upcoming wedding have been publicly called into question, and her mother Sarah Ferguson is not having a bar of it.
The mother of the bride-to-be posted a photo of a letter written by Sarah Wade – the CEO and Co-founder of Humanitas Charity of which the Duchess is a patron of, to her social media accounts.
The letter was originally shared by Antonia Marshall, who works as the Duchess’ personal assistant.
The original tabloid article that Wade and the Duchess are protesting denounced the wedding between the 28-year-old royal and her 31-year-old fiance due to their lesser-known royal status. The writer also made swipes at the similarities between their upcoming 12 October nuptials and Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s May Royal Wedding.
Wade’s letter openly called out the “vitriol” expressed in the piece.
“I would like to draw into question the purpose of the feature, is it to make a young couple feel embarrassed or ashamed of the choices they have made for their wedding day or is it to incite anger and hatred towards them?” she wrote.
“Either way, the outcome is negative and tantamount to bullying.”
“The rhetoric is inflammatory and divisive, suggesting that the Princess has a ‘hunger for glitz and glamour that is every bit as monstrous as Mother’s Fergie’s’ and making the ill-search judgement that the Princess has done ‘almost nothing of note’.”
