Sarah Ferguson has told how she would have loved to 'share experiences' of becoming grandparents with her late sister-in-law Princess Diana.
Fergie, 61, dotes on her first grandchild, August, who is the son of her daughter Eugenie and husband Jack Brooksbank.
And with her youngest daughter Beatrice due to gives birth in the autumn, she's relishing in her relatively new role grandparent role.
But the arrival of the next generation of royal offspring has led her to gush about her friendship with the late Princess Diana, saying the pair would have hosted 'granny parties' to share their love of 'putting smiles on children's faces'.
Opening up about her family life, she told Bella magazine: "Diana and I had the same complete love for children.
"We both loved nothing more than to put a smile on a child’s face.
"We’d be having granny parties together and having a great time. I wonder whether there would be room for the kids to get onto the bouncy castle, as she and I would be the first on."
Sarah said she would have envisaged Diana splitting her time between visiting her grandchildren Archie and Lilibet in California and spending time with George, Charlotte and Louis at Kensington Palace.
She told The Sun: "I think first and foremost she’d be hugging her grandchildren and so proud of both her sons and their wives.
“She’d be travelling between Santa Barbara and Kensington Palace.
“She would also be championing her causes when it came to children’s charities.”
When Fergie is not on 'grandparent' duties she has penned a new fictional novel with co-author Marguerite Kaye set in Victorian England about Margaret (the Duchess's middle name) navigating royal life.
Her Heart For A Compass is a fictionalised retelling of her own great-great aunt Lady Margaret.
Sarah explained that she was led to create a story after finding very little information about her relative and being left wondering about specific life choices including why she got married relatively late.
