Fergie's kids 'devastated' by her debt

London - Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie were devastated by their mother's financial problems.

The daughters of Britain's Prince Andrew and Sarah, Duchess of York took part in reality TV show Finding Sarah for Oprah Winfrey's new network OWN which documents their mother going on a soulful journey to rebuild her self-esteem, after she was caught trying to sell access to her former husband.

But new scenes have shown how upset her children were by the events.

In clips which show Eugenie, 21, in tears, Sarah said: "Seeing Eugenie so upset brought out the fighter in me".

Leading her away, Sarah then says: "What's wrong Eug?" while her youngest child replies: "I don't like it."


Sarah tries to comfort her daughter telling her: "It's fine baby, it's fine. Don't be sad, don't be sad, what are you getting sad for? They can't hurt you, they can't hurt us. We've got to keep tough.'"

Further scenes, which aired on Sunday night in the US, show Beatrice, 22, crying while discussing her mother's "re-invention".

On Monday, Sarah, 51  - who was married to Prince Andrew for 10 years until they divorced in 1996 - declared she is "debt free" for the first time in her life.

She said: "I am debt free for the first time in my life. But I definitely have to work, because I don't have any income at all. I am a single working mum.

    "I am a single working mum" ... really she has no clue what the life of a single working mum entails, dropping kids off at school, being late at work EVERYDAY to drop kids off at school, Picking kids up from school, Having to leave work early EVERYDAY to pick kids up from school, Paying for rent, school fees, transport, food, clothing, medical expenses and additional extras (often without financial assistance from the father). Having to cancel commitments and social engagements because you couldn't find or afford a baby sitter... Being a single working mom is relentless, ruthless and if you ask me doesn't apply to you if the children are over the age of 18 and have the vast majority of their needs provided for by their father. Sarah, you are not a single working mom in the textbook sense of the word, you are a single working woman who just happens to have kids (read: adult offspring).
