If the royal rumor mill is to be believed, Sarah Ferguson isn’t exactly the royal family’s favorite person — but that doesn’t mean the rest of the world can’t have a soft spot for the original Fergie.
Just as many cheered her unexpected appearance at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s May wedding, Ferguson made quite the splash in her duties as mother of the bride at younger daughter Princess Eugenie’s wedding to Jack Brooksbank on Friday.
Prince Andrew’s ex-wife — some reports say the former couple have rekindled their flame — stole the show in a bright green wrap dress by Emma Louise Design, which she paired with a matching wide-brimmed Jess Collet hat with yellow ribbon trim. In a sentimental touch, the redhead also carried the very Manolo Blahnik clutch her late mother took to her own royal wedding in 1986.
But her meme-worthy facial expressions and hand gestures were arguably the event’s biggest “lewk” — and royal-watchers were eating it up.

Her bold outfit also fetched some comments.

Early bitching about Fergie starting: "Who's in this car? It's someone with a MASSIVE hat." "Must be Sarah Ferguson."

Fergie's hat reminds me of the Delta Airlines logos from the 1930s and 1940s pic.twitter.com/mFTS4jyx6c
