Sarah Ferguson, also known as Sarah, Duchess of York, has an estimated net worth of $1 million. She is a charity patron, spokesperson, writer, film producer, and television personality. Born Sarah Margaret Ferguson on October 15, 1959, at 27 Welbeck Street, London, England, she attended Daneshill School, Stratfield Turgis, and Hurst Lodge School, Ascot. At the age of eighteen, she finished a course at Queen’s Secretarial College. She then worked in a public relations firm in London and later, for an art gallery and a publishing company.
Ferguson is the former wife of Prince Andrew, Duke of York. They were married on July 23, 1986, in Westminster Abbey. They have two daughters, Beatrice and Eugenie. The two divorced on May 30, 1996, after four years of official separation.
Sarah Ferguson is known for her charity and humanitarian work. However, she has not been free from controversy. In 2010, she was in a scandal involving “pay for access” wherein she was videotaped by an undercover News of the World reporter. Such controversy has increased her public profile and notoriety, which led to an increase in print of her project, a children’s book entitled Ashley Learns About Strangers, by Sterling Publishers.
Such incident was an indication that the Duchess is facing problems with debt since 2010, owing hundreds of thousands of dollars in unpaid legal fees. She narrowly avoided bankruptcy in 2011 with the intervention of her ex-husband.
Later in 2011, Ferguson appeared in the reality series Finding Sarah on Oprah Winfrey’s television network. The show follows her journey on “finding herself” after everything that happened to her.
