Sarah, Duchess of York enlisted the help of one of her good friends and a former Luxembourg royal for her latest YouTube project. The 60-year-old set up her YouTube channel, Storytime with Fergie and Friends, during the lockdown, and has been delighting children around the world with her daily stories and activities. Sarah's guest on Wednesday was Tessy Antony de Nassau – the former wife of Prince Louis of Luxembourg.

Tessy, 34, who runs bespoke consultancy Finding Butterflies, read The Little Engine That Could by Watty Piper. Her youngest son Noah, 12, sat by her side in the background as she read the popular children's book aloud.

Prince Louis married Tessy in September 2006 and they share two children – Gabriel, 14 and Noah. The Grand Ducal Court announced the couple's separation in January 2017 and their divorce was finalised last year. While Louis works in Paris, Tessy has since based herself in London with her sons, although the trio are currently quarantining with Tessy's extended family in Switzerland.
