Fergie (The Duchess, That Is)
Roger Friedman of FoxNews.com must be the only person in the world who would describe Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York as "loyal" to the Queen and the Royal Family. I like Fergie, but there is no love lost among any of them and -- as far as she's concerned -- nor should there be. The Royal Family is wildly out of touch and bizarre -- Diana would describe the feeling of sneaking into her kitchen late at night to get something as if it were a betrayal of the servants; in other words, you were trapped and felt guilty for doing anything. And Fergie's dieting adverts and other mass media forays (she almost did a talk show) hardly add lustre to the Crown, at least certainly not in their eyes. But again, I'd rather hang with Fergie than anyone else in the Royal Family, excepting the heir and the spare, of course.
