The royals you probably forgot was in The Vicar of Dibley
When you think of the royals most likely to appear on a beloved TV show, you probably directly think of actress and Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle.
But another royal actually appeared in a fan-favorite British comedy – Sarah Ferguson, once married to Prince Andrew, Duke of York, played herself in Dibley’s Vicar.
Ferguson, now 61, is a successful writer, philanthropist and television personality away from royal duties.
She appeared in a special Comic Relief episode of The Vicar of Dibley in 1999, towards the end of its original airing.

More interestingly, Johnny Depp starred alongside Sarah Ferguson in the same special, called “Celebrity Party”.
In the special episode, the BBC contacted the vicar to ask if they could make a documentary about the village, and Geraldine graciously invites Johnny Depp to a party at the Vicarage, where royalty Sarah Ferguson was also present.
David refused to attend the party because he did not believe it. However, when David visits the presbytery the next morning, Geraldine tells him what happened at the party.
Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York, subsequently arrives in the plot after leaving her tiara behind and tells Geraldine how much other celebrities and big names loved her party.
However, the party wasn’t perfect, as in the episode there is a power cut during the lavish event, so poor Geraldine can’t even see any of her famous guests.
