Sarah Ferguson admits she has become a new person after her cancer diagnosis.
The Duchess of York, who has recently had her mastectomy against breast cancer, says she looks at life from a different lens.
Fergie begins by sharing how she has stopped self-hatred for the past few years.
“Not because of seeing death but waking up to stop worrying, stop self-hatred, stop self-doubt, stop all these things. Stop not liking yourself,” she told on her show Teatalks.
Fergie adds: “When I look back, I was OK, I've got good legs but I didn't like myself and that was because, I think, I was always compared to Diana. And I think that at the end, I believed my own press which is, you know, not too good."
Speaking about losing a part of her body, Sarah continued: "You've got an enormous scar, but you like yourself. You've got a badge of office, you just are what you are, and... of course, the last thing that the Queen said to me [was] 'Just be yourself, Sarah'.
