Sarah Ferguson just released her secret recordings from years ago that contained her most candid and brutal revelations about Prince Philip, Princess Anne, and Princess Diana.

According to a royal source, the recording is being released now to deflect the attention from Prince Andrew. The Duke of York is still being linked to Jeffrey Epstein’s sexual abuse scandal.

“Fergie also left no stone unturned with regards to exactly what she thought of all the members of the royal family  –  in particular, Anne and Philip. She didn’t hold back and it was probably her most candid and at times brutal interview to date,” the source said.

At the time of her interview, Princess Margaret just wrote a letter to the Duchess of York accusing her of bringing nothing but shame to the royal family. It is highly likely that the letter is also part of her interview.

Ferguson was supposed to release the recordings in the ‘90s, but she reportedly backed out after getting cold feet. Since then, she had been sitting on the recordings and only decided to release them now.

“At this point, Fergie is desperate to deflect all the heat off Andrew. She’s used to being surrounded by drama and scandal so isn’t too worried about the attention ‒ and if it means giving Andrew a break from all the Epstein drama he’s engulfed in, then that’s a good thing,” the source said.

Another revelation in the recordings has to do with Princess Diana. Ferguson and the Princess of Wales used to be very close. But they had a falling out after Fergie exposed Princess Diana’s biggest secrets.

Prior to the late royal’s death, the mom of two tried to make amends with Prince Charles’ ex-wife. However, her attempts were all in vain. Princess Diana died without ever patching things up with Ferguson. But the Duchess of York said that a source told her that Princess Diana had been asking about her before she passed away.
