Meghan's foray into publishing comes amid her rising stocks in the royal family, and reports she's particularly favoured by the Queen. In contrast, Fergie has only relatively recently been invited back into the royal fold after years in the wilderness.
‘Imogen is one of the quickest-witted people I know,’ Ferguson told the paper. ‘Every moment with such a clever lady is a jump into joy and creativity, and I am so lucky to have a friend like her. I am excited about the future working with Imogen, as her writing is, for me, superb.’
Despite a string of scandals and disgraces in her past, it seems that Fergie believes she’s perfectly placed to give advice, feeling she’s aced at least one thing in life.
‘I believe in example by leadership,’ he told the Daily Mail.
‘I think the one thing I’ve done incredibly well — although I say it myself — is that I’m a really good mum. I think that my girls show that.’
Insiders say that although there is no personal animosity between the royal women, a peeved Fergie is determined that her writing career won't be overshadowed by anyone.
