She also did not attend the official coronation ceremony, although she was seen at the subsequent concert.
Even after her divorce from Prince Andrew, Sarah has maintained a close bond with her former mother-in-law, Queen Elizabeth. Following the queen’s passing, Sarah spoke about the profound impact it had on her. She expressed, “I am now finding my own voice and sense of identity. I believe the passing of the queen has somewhat liberated me. For over six decades, my purpose has been to remain loyal and uphold Her Majesty’s values,” she shared. “She was more of a mother to me than my biological mother. With her absence, I feel a sense of freedom to embrace my true self, liberated from my own mental restraints.”
