Sarah Ferguson Wants To Be Portrayed More On 'The Crown' — And She Even Reached Out To The Executive Producer!
While most of the royal family didn't tune into The Crown, Sarah "Fergie" Ferguson is adamant on being featured in the Netflix series.
“'Hello?'" she joked to Town & Country. "'Where is Fergie?'"
The 61-year-old even wrote to Andy Harries, who is the executive producer of The Crown. "I said to him, 'Why can’t I help my character?’” she explained. However, Harries declined her offer.

Season 5 of The Crown is currently filming, and the latest season will cover Princess Diana's tragic death — something that creator and writer Peter Morgan is being extra careful about.
“I've spoken to him about it and he's very conscious about the responsibility he feels to Harry and William with this program moving forward," Edith Bowman, host of the "The Crown: The Official Podcast," which Morgan frequently appears on, said.
“Because what they've been through already has just been excruciating for two young boys and young men," Bowman added. “He feels he has a sense of duty to them.”
In February, Prince Harry weighed in on the historical drama.
"They don't pretend to be news. It's fiction. But it's loosely based on the truth. Of course, it's not strictly accurate," he told James Corden.

"It gives you a rough idea about what that lifestyle, what the pressures of putting duty and service above family and everything else, what can come from that," he said. "I'm way more comfortable with The Crown than I am seeing the stories written about my family, or my wife, or myself. That is obviously fiction – take it how you will. But this is being reported on as fact because you're supposedly news."
While Ferguson might be itching to be featured more, Prince William feels differently.
According to a source, the 39-year-old was "none too pleased" with the show, adding that he “feels that both his parents are being exploited and being presented in a false, simplistic way to make money.”
