Duchess of York pays visit to U.S. dieters ATLANTA -Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York and a self-admitted "closet American," encouraged a hotel ballroom of 1,500 dieters to pursue their goals and told her tale of slimming down from 220 pounds. Since 1997, Ms. Ferguson has worked as a celebrity representative for Weight Watchers Inc. Ms. Ferguson said she spends as much time in America as she can, telling about the "puppy fat" that trailed her into adulthood, and of "thundering down" stairwells at Buckingham Palace as "fat, frumpy Fergie."
