Sarah Ferguson could create a new headache for Buckingham Palace after revealing she could see herself writing another memoir.
The Duchess of York has already written two memoirs: My Story, published in 1996 just months after her divorce from Prince Andrew was finalised, and then Finding Sarah in 2011, which came after another bout of financial woes.
But now, following the fallout from Prince Harry’s bombshell autobiography Spare in January, Fergie, might end up adding fuel to the fire.
In an interview with the website Royal Central to publicise her new historical fiction book, Sarah, 63, was asked whether she could imagine herself writing another memoir at some point. She replied: ‘Yes, I do. Watch this space.’
During a media round for A Most Intriguing Lady, she revealed she was pleased that her writing career had taken off, giving her another ‘claim to fame’ aside marrying into the royal family.

A source told the Daily Mail that Fergie ‘constantly’ has new offers to write a new memoir and ‘will consider them seriously, though nothing has been decided’.
‘It is very much an idea at this stage,’ they added. ‘She would not want to do anything to embarrass the family.’
Sarah has had something of a renaissance recently, having been invited to join King Charles and other senior royals at Sandringham at Christmas, as well as looking after the late Queen’s corgis.
It has been rumoured that Andrew is considering putting his own side of recent events down in print – but sources close to the disgraced royal have denied this.

Elsewhere, the Duchess hailed the ‘liberating’ feeling of embarking upon a successful career in her 60s.
In an interview with OK! magazine, the royal said her new career ensured that marrying into the Firm was no longer her ‘only claim to fame’.
She said: ‘I feel very proud to have embarked on a new career in my sixties.
‘Not many people get that opportunity. Now having married into the royal family isn’t my only claim to fame, I’m an author who has made the Sunday Times Bestsellers List.
‘It feels like this is my time. It is very liberating.’
The mother of two, who still lives with former husband Prince Andrew in Windsor’s Royal Lodge, has also written books for children and hosted a YouTube programme for youngsters.
Sarah has recently been making a slew of appearances to promote her new novel, and in a recent interview, opened up about the corgis (pictured) she adopted from the late Queen following her death last September
Sarah’s OK interview follows other appearances to promote her latest novel, including an appearance on Rylan Clark’s Radio 2 show at the weekend.
While chatting with the host, she opened up about the two corgis she adopted from the late Queen.
Muick and Sandy moved to Royal Lodge after the monarch’s death last September.
And according to Sarah, the two dogs are doing ‘really well’ in dealing with the adjustment.
She said: ‘They’re great, they’re really happy, and their tails have gone up now, so I think they are over their grief.’
The corgis were a gift to the Queen from Andrew and his daughters Princess Beatrice and Eugenie following the death of the Duke of Edinburgh.
The royal said they are ‘so sweet’ and noted they had been taught well, adding: ‘I think they’ve been trained by her [the Queen] to be so gentle.
‘When you take a little digestive biscuit and break like it she used to with her little hands… she must have put a little biccie in front of them, and they gently take it.’
At Henley Literary Festival last October, the royal described taking care of the animals as a ‘big honour’, according to the Telegraph.
She added that Muick and Sandy are ‘national treasures’.
The late Queen owned more than 30 of the sandy, short-legged dogs throughout her reign. But she had resisted taking on any new dogs in recent years, not wanting to leave any behind after her death.
She was gifted her first corgi, Susan, for her 18th birthday by her father King George VI. Ten generations of her corgis then descended from Susan.
Her dogs were given the royal treatment, having their own rooms with elevated wicker baskets and meals of beef, chicken, rabbit, liver, cabbage and rice being prepared by a chef each evening.
Sometimes the Queen herself made the dog’s meals. But her late husband was said to have ‘loathed’ the dogs’ yapping.
Muick, pronounced Mick, joined the royal family at the start of 2021 along with a so-called ‘dorgi’, a cross between a corgi and a dachshund, called Fergus.
Muick had been named after Loch Muick on the Balmoral Estate, where the Queen died last September. Fergus had been named after the late monarch’s uncle who was killed in the First World War.
Fergus died after just five months and was replaced with a new corgi called Sandy, as a 95th birthday present from Prince Andrew and his daughters, Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie
At the time of the new corgi arrivals, the Queen’s dresser Angela Kelly, said: ‘I was worried they would get under the Queen’s feet, but they have turned out to be a godsend. They are beautiful and great fun and the Queen often takes long walks with them in [Windsor’s] Home Park.’
