The cost to access to her ex-hubby, Prince Andrew, is $500,000 pounds ($724,000 American dollars). But first, a down payment of $40,000 in cash is required. The Queen must be shitting in her royal gown right about now.
LONDON — Duchess of York Sarah Ferguson said she was "very sorry" for her lapse of judgment after she was recorded apparently offering to sell access to her ex-husband Prince Andrew in return for 500,000 pounds ($724,000).
The duchess said in a statement released Sunday that she had financial problems, but "that is no excuse for a serious lapse in judgment and I am very sorry that this has happened."
"I very deeply regret the situation and the embarrassment caused," she said.
The tabloid News of the World posted video on its website that appears to show Ferguson discussing payment terms. She is heard to say "500,000 pounds when you can, to me, open doors."
Asked if she was referring to the prince, she said: "Yeah."
The newspaper said Ferguson, 50, spoke to an undercover reporter posing as a businessman.
Andrew is an international British trade ambassador. Both the newspaper and the duchess said he had no knowledge of the meeting.
The report is embarrassing, but there is no suggestion Ferguson did anything illegal. Link
Wow Fergie - times must be tough to be selling your royal soul. Forget grace, dignity and your reputation! Drinking and smoking while negotiating a deal is certainly not a healthy combination.
But here in America, what Sarah did is called lobbying and our politicians make billions. It is a business deal. Its capitalism!
Don't worry Sarah, this too will soon pass.
