Sarah, Duchess of York receives apology from magazine – see statement

The Duchess of York was wrongly accused of writing a tell-all book

Sarah, Duchess of York has received an apology from a magazine who mistakenly reported that she had been offered $15m to write a tell-all book about the royal family. The statement from Closer read: "On Aug 17, 2018, we published an article under the headline 'Sarah Ferguson Reportedly Offered $15 Million for Royal Family Tell-All Book.'

"We now reservedly accept that any suggestion that Sarah, Duchess of York is considering writing or accepting financial reward for any such book about the royal family was based on pure speculation and is totally without foundation. We sincerely apologise to the Duchess for suggesting otherwise." Prince Andrew's ex-wife has since reposted the statement on Twitter.
