The fourth season of “The Crown” created a huge scandal for the British royal family, with even some MPs accusing the series of portraying the monarchy in a bad light. However, there is at least one royal who was extremely excited to see herself on the show.

Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York and the ex-wife of Queen Elizabeth II’s second son Prince Andrew, was portrayed on the show by actress Jessica Aquilina. The character made her debut in the fourth season as the series began covering the adult lives of the monarch’s four children. Though Ferguson’s character had comparatively little screen time, she appears briefly as she begins dating Prince Andrew and steps into royal life. Their wedding in 1986 was also featured on the show.
