Watch: Sarah Ferguson orders Cannes Film Festival to be ‘quiet’

Sarah Ferguson ordered the Cannes Film Festival audience to be “quiet” as she scolded them for “looking for the next party” when they should be worrying about the climate crisis.

The Duchess of York, 64, lost her cool as the crowd continued to speak over her while she stood on stage at a gala auction on Thursday night (23 May).

She thanked auctioneer Simon de Pury as a portrait of the late Queen was sold off for €475,000 in aid of charity - before lecturing the crowd on the environment.

“What I want to say, is why are we here? What is the future and why are we not making our planet better for the youth of tomorrow?” Fergie questioned.
