Sarah Ferguson was in pain during Eugenies wedding – and needed treatment to recover – Express

The Duchess of York, affectionately known as Fergie by the British public, decided to have pioneering regenerative stem cell therapy to be able to wear heels again. Fergie had to give up on her stilettos for a long time due to the excruciating pain she felt every time she tried to walk in them. And if she forced herself to wear high heels to mark important occasions she had to endure pain throughout the whole day.

Her feet caused Fergie trouble even during Princess Eugenies wedding last October.

Speaking to the Daily Mail, the Duchess of York said her feet were in such pain she felt relieved to be able to sit down in the pew and rest them for a while before Eugenie entered St Georges Chapel.

The source of the pain seemed to be her big toe, and now, thanks to regenerative stem cell therapy the Duchess is no longer in pain every time she opts to wear shows other than flats.

Fergie headed to the Bahamas to undergo stem cell therapy - an alternative to surgery which is yet to be proven fully safe and effective on humans and is therefore not widely available in the UK.

Speaking about her trip, she said: I went to the Bahamas in March to have the treatment.

I think my toes were ruined by all the riding I did when I was young.

They shaved the bone here and implanted stem cells 20 million of them taken from my midriff into my feet to make new cartilage.

It takes about six months to heal but now I can walk in heels!

Fergie underwent a series of treatments during the years, including vitamin injections, organic fillers and botox - which she had a long time ago, when there was nothing else available.

Ahead of Eugenies wedding, Fergie underwent laser treatment to look her best.

Fergie attributed her glowing skin on October 12, the day of Princess Eugenies wedding, to her happiness.

But she also revealed she did seek the help of a professional to improve her natural beauty.

She said: The happiness was shining out of me because my daughter was getting married.


I was so glad. I love Jack. When Im passionate about anything, my eyes shine.

Above all, it was being joyful for Eugenie that made me look good.

But Id had some laser treatment on my face which helped, too.

Despite having used several techniques to stave off ageing, Fergie said there is one she is no longer going to have - Botox.

She said: I had Botox a long time ago when there was nothing else available.

I really dont like the frozen look.

Im so animated and I like to be myself.

I dont like the thought of needles and am very glad if I look well and happy.

Fergie also said she has stopped sunbathing after suffering two losses in her life which helped her realise she must take care of her skin just as well as any other organs.
