During an appearance on the Italian talk show Porta a Porta last week, the Duchess of York, 62, discussed what she believes the Princess of Wales would've thought regarding the life her son, 37, and her daughter-in-law Meghan Markle, 40, have created together after leaving their royal lives behind in 2020.
“The most important thing ― and I know Diana, if she were here, would say that ― they are very happy,” Ferguson told the host of her family members, per HuffPost, who welcomed their second child, daughter Lilibet Diana, in June.
This was not the first time Ferguson has gushed over her late friend's boys. Earlier this year, "Fergie" told People that Diana would have been "proud" of who her sons grew up to be and the partners they chose.

"If she were sitting with me right now, I know she would say, 'I am so proud of both of my boys and the wonderful wives they have chosen," Ferguson insisted at the time. "Because each has got her own voice."
The former besties — who were also fourth cousins that both married into the royal family — had not spoken in the year prior to Diana's passing. The romance novelist told Harper’s Bazaar in 2007, “The saddest thing, at the end, we hadn’t spoken for a year, though I never knew the reason, except that once Diana got something in her head."
