The duo in question had been detained on the grounds of “impersonating police officers” and were even held in the back of a law enforcement vehicle.
As of late, Sarah Ferguson has come forth with the claim that she and Princess Diana were apprehended at her bachelorette party in 1986, on account of dressing up as policewomen for the festivities, thereby giving rise to charges of impersonating officers.
In a recent appearance on The Kelly Clarkson Show, the Duchess of York recounted the extraordinary event, stating: “It was extraordinary, because we went to a nightclub, of course, you go to a nightclub with the Princess of Wales. We sat down, and the waiter came up to us and said, ‘Excuse me, this is a members club. It’s for fun, and we don’t serve police officers here.”
Clarkson, taken aback by the account, inquired as to whether or not the authorities had genuinely believed the two women to be real police officers, to which Ferguson confirmed their suspicion: “Yes!”
Moreover, she proceeded to divulge that both she and Diana had hidden their engagement rings after being taken into custody by law enforcement officials.
Revealing more about the incident, Fergie disclosed that Diana had come across some “smoky bacon-flavoured crisps” while inside the police van and had begun consuming them. This was until an officer sitting in the front seat chided her with the words: “You can’t do that!”
Ferguson, mother of Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice, candidly admitted to not missing Diana, who passed away in 1997, because she is with her “all day.”
Fergie reminisced, “She and I, we laughed a lot. We got into trouble a lot. You know what she used to do? She used to tell me the worst story, joke story, just before I had to be serious.”
Curiously, the bond between Diana and Sarah had existed long before either of them became members of the royal family. In point of fact, the two women were fourth cousins and their mothers had even attended the same school. They had been acquainted with each other since their youth, although they only began to grow closer after reconnecting in 1980, when Diana was 19 years old and Sarah was 21. The pair shared many mutual friends and interests and soon began meeting for lunch on a weekly basis.
