Sarah Ferguson is the former-wife of Prince Andrew, also 58, the Queen’s second eldest son.

On Friday this week her youngest daughter, Princess Eugenie, 28, will marry her longterm boyfriend Jack Brooksbank, 32.

Yesterday the Duchess of York took to her social media to launch another project related to her charity work.

She posted an image to her Instagram account to promote charity Street Child.

She wrote: “As a mother, I have found the stories and scenes of children affected by the earthquake and tsunami in Indonesia utterly heartbreaking.

“They need our help. That’s why we are launching a special appeal – please support it if you can https://www.street-child.co.uk/ @streetchilduk #indonesia #support.”

In July Sarah Ferguson announced that her charity would be merging with another.

She revealed hopes to help 10,000 young people in Janakpur, Nepal.

She wrote on Twitter: “We have solutions and will be able to educate and help 10,000 children of the 25,000 all living in this poverty.

“I am merging my foundation @ChildrenCrisis with @streetchilduk. So onwards and upwards @streetchilduk @TomDannatt #streetchild #childrenincrisis #nepal #janakpur.”

Children in Crisis was set up in 1993 and focuses on the well-being of children in various locations including the Congo and Afghanistan.

Sarah founded the charity and is Life President of the organisation.

Will Sarah Ferguson give a speech at Princess Eugenie’s wedding? 

While some plans for the big day have been revealed, the actual itinerary for the reception is currently unknown.

It is traditional for the father-of-the-bride to make a speech, but not the mother.

Princess Eugenie wedding plans will honour her parents on the big day. h

The Archbishop of York, a nod to her parents’ titles, will lead the prayers in the church on the big day.

How much will Princess Eugenie’s wedding cost?

As ninth in line to the throne, Eugenie is believed to feel that she “deserves her moment in the spotlight and a big royal wedding with all the frills,” according to a Daily Mail source.

The princess has planned two days of partying following her wedding on October 12.
