"Since he stepped back [from royal duties] he doesn't actually take taxpayers' money. And I'm in a position where I can support him and the rest of the family through my work," the author, 63, spilled in a new interview. "And I’m really pleased and proud to do that."

"All I will say is that for many years now – it started with Budgie the Little Helicopter – I've really pushed to look after my girls and to contribute to the York family life," she added.

Ferguson is making the press rounds to promote her book A Most Intriguing Lady: A Novel, so unsurprisingly, she's been hounded with questions about her former spouse, who settled out of court after a woman named Virginia Giuffre claimed he sexually assaulted her when she was 17.

Fergie previously shared that her kindness towards Andrew stemmed from her love for his mother, Queen Elizabeth II.

"During the last three years, her poor son has been going through such a tumultuous time, and I think [Her Majesty] was very relieved I could help her with him, so we became even closer, then," she explained to an outlet, noting the late matriarch "knew" Sarah would "always" look after him.
