DIARY: She’s no longer HRH, but Fergie’s discovered a new source of royalties

As the world awaits the publication of Norma Major’s memoirs, Midas PR is about to promote the true story of another well-known celebrity wife - a certain Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York.

As the world awaits the publication of Norma Major’s memoirs, Midas PR

is about to promote the true story of another well-known celebrity wife

- a certain Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York.



The book, with the working title My Story - despite being ghost-written

by American Jeffrey Schneider - is due to hit the shelves in November.



Tony Mulliken, Midas’s genial joint managing director, tells me he

hasn’t yet met the ex-HRH, but feels the vibes are good. The PR

programme will be worked out with the Duchess, but he does predict it is

not likely to include a tete-a-tete with Clive Anderson.



Mulliken has yet to see the Duchess’s manuscript, although he says it

has been delivered to the publisher Simon and Schuster and they are

‘thrilled with it’.



As for whether this means the firm has blown it with the rest of the

Royal family, Mulliken thinks not, although there is one piece of work

he feels he would have to turn down - that’s the other book: Fergie: Her

Secret Life.



That book covers her fling with toe-sucking Texan John Bryan and is

currently the subject of High Court action between publisher Michael

O’Mara Books and the Duchess’s lawyers.



Mulliken says: ‘We work for many publishers but if we were asked to do

that particular job, sadly, we’d have to say no.’
