Sarah Ferguson put on a chic display as she stepped out in a funky embellished jacket for a book launch in London.

The Duchess of York, 63, wore a little black dress with a flowing skirt to attend the launch of Imogen Edwards-Jones’ latest book ‘Have You Got Anything Stronger?’

Fergie beamed as she donned a £1,555 white cropped embellished leather jacket from Alice + Olivia covered in chunky studs, and showed off her large golden watch. 

But this isn’t the first time that Fergie has sported the stunning jacket, as she wore it just last Monday when she was in New York to visit Glamour editor Samantha Barry to discuss her book. 

She also went for a similar look to when she was across the pond, as she also opted for a black knee-length skirt and over-the-knee boots.

However, today the mother-of-two chose to wear a pair of black sheer tights and lace up ankle boots for the literary event at Daunt Books.

She kept her auburn hair loose, with a dainty headband keeping it out of her eyes, showing off her pearl stud earrings. 

Fergie was seen posing with the new book with model Yasmin Le Bon and author Imogen Edwards-Jones. 

Some other high profile stars also attended the launch, including ex-Prime Minister David Cameron and his wife, Samantha, and also television presenter Claudia Winkleman. 

For today’s outing, Sarah kept her makeup neutral and looked to be having a brilliant time as she posed against book cases and spoke animatedly with other attendees. 

Imogen Edwards-Jones is the author of 20 books, including five Sunday Times bestsellers. 

Her latest offering follows a year in the life of four best friends as they navigate careers, friendship, love, sex, money, children, and question their harassed realities.

These are similar themes that have recently cropped up in Fergie’s life, as she revealed to Glamour editor Samantha Barry that she believes ‘forgiveness is key’ when it comes to ‘family unity’. 

Speaking in a 60-minute interview, the Duchess was asked about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, who are currently living in a $14 million mansion in California.

Fergie noted that Harry’s late mother Princess Diana would be ‘so proud’ of her children and grandchildren – adding that she believes King Charles feels the same way.

She said: ‘Diana and I, we played a lot and had a great time and I feel really strongly – and so would the King – [that she would] be so proud of the grandchildren. And of the family. And I do believe in family unity. I think forgiveness is key.’

The relationship between the Duke of Sussex and other members of the royal family has been fraught with tension after Megxit, when Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle quit as working royals, made a number of sometimes spurious claims about the Firm and moved to a $14million mansion in California. 

Since then, they have released a number of explosive interviews, as well as a bombshell Netflix series and Harry’s memoir, Spare. 

In January, Prince Harry demanded the Royal Family apologise to Meghan after he claimed his family were treating him as if he were ‘delusional and paranoid’.

The prince said: ‘You know what you did, and I now know why you did it. And you’ve been caught out, so just come clean.’

In an interview with The Telegraph before the official launch of his book, Harry appeared to blame his family for the feud.

He said: ‘It was all so avoidable. But they just couldn’t help themselves.’

But while Fergie might suggest forgiveness is key to family unity, royal experts have previously suggested others feel Harry should apologise to them.

Elsewhere, Fergie – who has been candid in her support of Andrew over the past few years – was unusually coy about their relationship when grilled about it during an event to promote her new romance novel, A Most Intriguing Lady.

Fergie covered all manner of topics – but shied away from sharing any in-depth details about her former spouse, whom she divorced in 1996. 

‘I feel that he’s… I did… in 1986 I married a very good man. Zip,’ she said when asked about her close connection with Andrew, 63, who has – as Samantha noted – ‘had a difficult few years’, having fallen from grace as a result of his friendship with paedophile Jeffrey Epstein and a multi-million-pound settlement he paid to his sex abuse accuser Virginia Giuffre.

Although Fergie was reluctant to discuss Andrew, she was much more verbose when it came to praising her late mother-in-law, the Queen, describing her as being ‘more my mother than my mother’. 

‘The Queen was like a hand of support behind your back without being there,’ she said.

Celia Walden opted for a bold fuchsia coat as she posed next to a rather beaming Fergie, who was holding the new book   

‘For the whole nation, for the world. Steadfast, consistent, iconic. [She had an] extraordinary ability to put someone at ease. I still now think it was such an honor [to have known her].’ 

The Duchess of York’s close relationship with the Queen was cemented when it was revealed that Her Majesty had left her beloved corgis to Sarah after her death. 

‘They’re very good boys, they’re very gentle,’ Fergie said of the pups. ‘I think they knew that they weren’t to jump up and be naughty. They used to sit and watch the racing with her. And when you give them a biscuit, they don’t snatch. They’re very special, they’re national treasures.’

However, taking on the care of two ‘national treasures’ has – the Duchess joked – been somewhat ‘terrifying’ because she admits she constantly panics that they’re going to get injured on her watch. 

But Fergie’s close bond with the Queen and her ongoing role within the peripheries of the Monarchy have not managed to secure her an invitation to what will likely be the biggest royal event of the year: King Charles’ coronation.
