Sarah Ferguson’s family has some happy news – her niece Heidi Luedecke is getting married! Heidi, who is 27 years old, is the daughter of Sarah’s older sister, Jane Ferguson. She’s going to marry Ben Collinson, who works with art.
Sarah, who is often called Fergie, shared her excitement about Heidi and Ben’s engagement. She loves her niece Heidi and is happy for the couple.
Heidi’s mom, Jane, is also thrilled for them and made a joke, saying, “Welcome to the crazy family, Ben!”
Heidi works at the Tate Gallery in London, which is a place for art. This might be similar to her cousin, Princess Eugenie, who also likes art. Eugenie is Sarah’s and Prince Andrew’s daughter, and she studied art in college like Kate Middleton. Heidi has been working at an art gallery in London since 2015.
Not many people know this, but Sarah Ferguson also worked at an art gallery in London before she married Prince Andrew in 1986. In 2003, Heidi and her mom Jane went with Sarah to an event for Weight Watchers in Australia, where Sarah was a spokesperson.
Jane shared the happy news on her Instagram, posting pictures of Heidi and Ben, showing off her engagement ring.

Sarah Ferguson has been in the news recently because she talked about her breast cancer diagnosis on a TV show called Loose Women. She did this to encourage women to go for their breast cancer screenings. Sarah thanked her older sister Jane for pushing her to go for the screening, which helped find the cancer early.
Sarah was diagnosed with breast cancer after a mammogram she had already scheduled. She had surgery to remove it and kept her fans updated on her recovery throughout the summer.
Sarah has started a grant for breast cancer research in partnership with The V Foundation for Cancer Research. This is important to her because she had a mastectomy over the summer. She talked about a special dye that can detect cancer, and she’s grateful to the doctors and nurses who helped her.
Sarah’s family, including her daughters Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie, has been very supportive. She’s also a grandma to Beatrice’s sons August and Ernest, and to Sienna, Beatrice’s daughter, and Christopher Woolf, who is Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi’s son from a previous relationship. Sarah says her grandchildren have been a source of joy and healing for her.
