Sarah, Duchess of York made an incredibly touching tribute to the late Princess Diana on International Women’s Day by posting a photograph and calling her a 'dear friend' as she grouped her amongst some of the strong women she’s been lucky enough to have in her life. Taking to social media to talk about the females who have meant the most to her, Sarah wrote, "Thinking of some of the strong women who've been part of my life - my late mother, my dear, departed friends Diana and Carolyn Cotterell and of course my fierce, beautiful, loving daughters Beatrice and Eugenie who make me proud every day."
She shared a gorgeous black and white picture of her two much-loved daughters, which showed them posing together for a selfie recently. The photograph she shared of herself and Diana, Princess of Wales was a fabulous throwback. Smiling together the pair look like they’re having a lot of fun together.
