The Original Fergie Wrote A Historical Romance Novel Loosely Based On Her Life-Story

January 13, 2021 / Posted by:

I think we could all use a hearty belly laugh right about now. I know I sure did, so when I read that Fergie, ex-wife (and current roommate and possible again-wife of Prince Andrew), has written a romance novel based on her real-life “fairytale” marriage to a Prince, I threw my head back and let out a cackle so loud my cat came in to check on me. Yes, Willie boy, I am fine. I’m better than fine, I’m pre-ordering Her Heart for a Compass by Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York.

According to The Sun, the Victorian era-set novel follows Lady Margaret, an “unconventional” heroine who is “a little bit bolder than the average Victorian debutante.” The character is based on herself, as well as on the life of “her great-great-aunt, Lady Margaret Montagu Douglas Scott.” And if you think Fergie, whose middle name is Margaret, didn’t decide to dress up in period costume and make a little video to promote the book, then you don’t know Fergie.

Here’s what Fergie told The Sun about the book:

“Everybody loves a fairytale. I lived a fairytale myself by marrying a Prince. People want to be taken out of their everyday life at a time of anxiety and isolation.”

Fergie’s inspiration for the romance came from the life of her great-great-aunt, Lady Margaret Montagu Douglas Scott, whose parents were close friends of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert.

But despite the historical setting, the Duchess, 61, confirmed her royal romance won’t be too chaste.

So there’s definitely going to be some toe-sucking, but will Lady Margaret borrow money from a shady businessman to save her family from ruin? And will her Prince Charming be on the run from American Pinkerton agents for frequenting an underage sex ring run by that same shadowy figure? We will have to wait and see! But it looks promising.

There is scandal in Her Heart for a Compass, but it reflects the period in which it is set, and is a story based on a journey of the heart.”

Fergie, who has previously penned children’s books, added that she drew on “many parallels to my own life” for her first adult novel.

She explained: “I found happiness as did Lady Margaret in the story. I love her courage, her free spirit and challenging the status quo. The story is about a young woman who wants to break the mould and follow her heart.”

I honestly cannot wait. Even though I know that the majority of the profits are probably going to be donated to the Prince Andrew Legal Defense Fund.
