The Duchess of York opened up to Town & Country magazine this month about not being invited to Prince William and Kate Middleton's royal wedding in 2011.

Sarah Ferguson and Prince Andrew, William's uncle, divorced in 1996. But they remained close as they raised their two children, Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie.

Andrew, Beatrice, and Eugenie were at the wedding at Westminster Abbey in London. Ferguson, meanwhile, decided to leave the country.

"I didn't think I was probably worthy to go to their wedding," Ferguson told Town & Country.

"I took myself to Thailand, actually, to be far away from it so that I could try and heal," she added.

Seven years later, the duchess attended Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's royal wedding at St. George's Chapel.

Ferguson said on "Good Morning Britain" shortly after the wedding in 2018 that she'd received the invitation from the Queen.

"I think that Her Majesty's an incredible lady," Ferguson said.

"What an icon to the country, and one of the finest people in the world I've ever met. And I think that Her Majesty leads by such example and so inclusive - to include me is a wonderful gesture," she said, adding: "Her Majesty knew me from when I was a little naughty age 10 ... I can't thank Her Majesty enough for being so steadfast to me."

In the interview with Town & Country, Ferguson spoke about Netflix's royal drama series "The Crown," saying she'd offered to help the show's executive producer develop her character but was turned down.

"I said to him, 'Why can't I help my character?'" she said.

Representatives for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment.
