Sarah Ferguson has revealed she is yet to receive an invite to King Charles III's upcoming coronation, which takes place at Westminster Abbey on 6 May.

It was recently revealed that prospective guests have been asked to save the date ahead of official invitations that will be sent later. Over the weekend, a spokesperson for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle confirmed that the couple had received theirs, but a decision on their attendance is yet to be made.

During a chat with Extra TV, Sarah - who is on a publicity tour for her new historical novel, A Most Intriguing Lady, in the US - revealed that the invitations "haven't gone out yet".

"The invitations haven't gone out yet, so I don't know if I'm going to be there because, you know, who wants me around," she said when asked if her invitation had come through the door yet. "I was thinking that I would open a little tearoom, a portable tearoom at the bottom of the drive."

The 63-year-old author was married to the monarch's brother Prince Andrew, and together, they share two daughters - Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie.
