The life of one of Britain’s most controversial ex-royals is chronicled in exclusive interviews with Allan Starkie, her former financial advisor, friend Mark Fuller and Ingrid Seward, Editor of Majesty Magazine.

“And then you wake up in the morning to find you can’t go to the shops and you can’t phone your friends. And you can’t be seen smoking cigarettes. And you certainly can’t go and get drunk with the girls at the wine bar.” – Mark Fuller, Acquaintance, talking about Sarah’s life as a royal

“John [Bryan] was caressing one of her toes. He became known thereafter as a toe sucker. He confided in me a number of times that he was actually licking the instep and the upward thrust of his tongue at one point did perhaps touch her big toes. But hardly, hardly pure toe sucking in the real sense of the word” – Allan Starkie, Former Financial Advisor
“And then [after her divorce from Prince Andrew] BANG! The only reason you’re being let in is because you got two daughters. Can you imagine going on a holiday with your daughters and they’re going in the royal plane and you’ve got to get Easyjet? It’s embarrassing as a mother and it must have been awful for the girls as well.” – Mark Fuller, Acquaintance

“I would have a lot of baked potatoes. Baked beans, Kraft singles – love those. A lot of Taco Bell. Oh man if it wasn’t for like ,you know, Taco Bell, which you could order like 11 things for $5. Um, so, yeah it wasn’t necessarily the healthiest diet at those times.” – Katy Perry on her early days as a struggling musician
