Sarah Ferguson is back to working on her podcast, Tea Talks with the Duchess and Sarah, following her cancer diagnosis and subsequent treatment. And people have questions for the duchess and her cohost.
In particular, it seems as if people really want to know what the royal family does at Christmas. Are they like other families? Do they play board games? And is it true that when Queen Elizabeth II was alive she banned Monopoly because of how competitive it made everyone?
According to the Daily Mail, during the podcast, Sarah Ferguson revealed that the family does in fact, "'love games, board games, card games, Scrabble, jigsaws', and that they are 'a very unified family." Considering Ferguson specifically pointed out Scrabble, it is clear that this is one of the preferred board games for the royal family at Christmas.

Basically, the duchess says that the royal family really is like other families and they "love to do what other families do and that’s lovely."
However, while she may have pointed out that they are fans of Scrabble, she did not address the matter of Monopoly and the late queen. And we can't blame her, especially if the royal family isn't playing the game due to competition between family members.
We are loving Tea Talks with the Duchess and Sarah because it really feels like a chance to get to know a different side of not only Sarah Ferguson, but also the rest of the royal family. In a lot of ways, she is not only humanizing them, but making them sound like other families.
After learning this little tidbit about the royal family we can't wait to see what else Ferguson has to share with her listeners.
Are you surprised by which board game the royal family seems to prefer?
