Sarah Ferguson was the devoted mother every inch as she stepped out last night wearing a diamond bracelet emblazoned with her daughters’ names on it.
The 62-year-old ex-wife of Prince Andrew, commonly referred to as Fergie, stripped down stylishly in a black polo-neck dress, leather jacket and low heels as she attended a book launch at the private members’ club Annabels in Mayfair.
And she was in good company, with Samantha Cameron, Rebekah Brooks and multi-millionaire Richard Caring all leaving the glamorous bash.
Meanwhile, across town, Princess Eugenie, 31, joined Princess Beatrice, 33, at an exclusive dinner hosted by James Blunt’s wife as she enjoyed a rare kid-free night out with her sister.

Fergie wore her hair in a slicker blow dryer and injected a touch of glamor with pearl earrings and a diamond-encrusted bracelet adorned with Eugenie.
Fergie is mother to Beatrice, 33, and Eugenie, 31, who have both welcomed children in the past year.
And last night, Eugenie joined sister Beatrice for a well-deserved night off from parenting duties as they attended an intimate dinner hosted by James Blunt’s wife, Sofia Blunt, to launch Loci vegan sneakers in aid of the Blue Marine Foundation.
Beatrice, who gave birth to her daughter Sienna in late September, was joined by her Italian husband, Edo Mapelli Mozzi, 38, when they attended the event at Blunt’s exclusive The Fox and Pheasant pub in Chelsea.
Eugenie, whose son August was born in February, dressed stylishly in a black dress, before wrapping up in a green tartan coat at the end of the evening after moving to the glamorous members’ club Maison Estelle.

Earlier in the day, Fergie was all smiles as she left Europe 1 radio studios in France.
She could be seen holding a beautiful bouquet of flowers and waving to the benefactors as she left the building.
The mother of two gave an interview to Radio France’s Historiquement Votrre program about her book Her Heart for a Compass, which is now available in a French version.
Wearing her fiery red locks loose, the Duchess of York put on a stylish display in a houndstooth coat, which she paired with a plain black dress.

She completed her ensemble with flat, patent leather shoes and a bracelet on her wrist, adding tights for warmth.
Sarah opted for a smokey eye and a hint of blush for the occasion and added a nude lip.
Historiquement Votre is a program in which journalists, writers, royal experts and historians discuss historical anecdotes and the lives of famous personalities.
It is hosted by French royal expert Stephane Bern.

The Duchess of York (pictured) discussed her debut novel co-written with Marguerite Kaye
The Duchess of York’s Her Heart For A Compass, which is based on Sarah’s own life journey and includes investigations into her parentage, is a fictionalized account of the life of the Duchess’s enchanted aunt, Lady Margaret Montagu Douglas-Scott.
It was co-written with Marguerite Kaye, who has written more than 50 historical novels set in different eras.
However, it received mostly negative reviews in the press after hitting shelves in August.
Critics labeled the book “boring” and a “slog” with a “tacky” protagonist and a tone that jumps between “archaic and contemporary.” Almost everyone commented on the lack of sex, saying it was on the Mills & Boon “PG end.”
But at the time, Sarah said she and co-author Margarete Kaye, who has written more than 60 books, “stayed united” behind the work.
She will publish her second historical novel in 2022, which will again be co-written with Kaye.
