Fans all over the world were thrilled to hear Kate Middleton and Prince William's pregnancy news, but the couple's family members were the ones who were most overjoyed!
When asked whether she was excited about the newest addition to the royal family, William's aunt, Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York, exclusively told Closer, "Oh, yes. It's magic to be able to bring new life to the family — to any family."
The 54-year-old — who was previously married to Queen Elizabeth II's son, Prince Andrew — and her daughter, Princess Eugenie of York, attended the Cantor Fitzgerald and BGC Partners Charity Day in New York City, in support of their nonprofit, Children in Crisis, which aims "to support children in Third World countries to read, write, think, pursue their life goals and contribute positively to their communities."
Each year the charity day is held to commemorate the 658 Cantor Fitzgerald employees and 64 Eurobrokers employees who lost their lives in the World Trade Center attacks on 9/11.
Charities join brokers in cities worldwide to conduct transactions with the companies' clients, and 100 percent of the day's revenue is donated to the Cantor Fitzgerald Relief Fund and charities around the globe.
"It's extraordinary that BCG is so generous to do this, because it gives charities a chance to be heard," the Duchess told Closer at the event. "Anything we can do to give back, we like to do that."
