In this uncertain world, we can always be sure that Sarah Ferguson, Prince Andrew’s ex-wife, can say absolutely bizarre things.
She was there again on Tuesday, tweeting a few unusual messages that indicated that “Mother Nature” had released the coronavirus on humanity to punish us for not taking care of the planet.
At the time of her social media fusillade, she knew little; her former brother-in-law Prince Charles was already suffering from the virus. Charles had seen the queen two weeks earlier, leading to concerns that the virus could spread to the royal household.
One of Fergie’s tweets was accompanied by an enchanting picture of a cherry tree in full bloom that looks like it was taken on the huge private property, Royal Lodge, where she lives rent-free with her ex-husband.
