Ferguson praised Brooksbank as "a man of integrity," she told the hosts of BBC One’s The One Show on Monday, August 2, while promoting her new book, Her Heart for a Compass. "He's just one of my most favorite people. I call him James Bond, actually."
"He's just a superhero in my book, and he's a great father, a fabulous husband, and he's never at front of house, he always likes to be at the back," the Duchess of York continued.
The 61-year-old former wife of Prince Andrew also gushed over Eugenie, saying “I’m so proud of my daughter. She’s a great mother.” Prince Eugenie married the businessman in October 2018 at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle, and the pair welcomed their first child, son August, in February.
Ferguson recently opened about her four decades under the microscope of the public eye and how she finally put aside her identities as a Duchess and “Fergie” to embrace her real self, “Sarah.”
"It's like I've gotten out of my own way," she candidly said, OK! reported. "I've really become Sarah. The Duchess is there. Good old Fergie's there too. But Sarah is authentically present."
The mother-of-two admitted that life in the spotlight comes with many challenges, and that the constant fear of messing up stifles her ability to live freely. Ferguson explained that she often has "this extraordinary fear of getting it wrong or putting my head above the parapet only to be hit down."
