Sarah, also known as Fergie by members of her family and friends, took to Twitter to wish Mr Johnson a speedy recovery as he battles against coronavirus. The Duchess of York quoted Mr Johnson’s first speech as Prime Minister, delivered the day after the December 12 elections, to express her “gratitude”.
Fergie wrote: “Boris we send the strong words you spoke about in your speech and quote these lines.
“‘I, and we, will never take your support for granted.
“‘I will make it my mission to work night and day, to work flat-out to prove you right in voting for me.’
Mr Johnson was first brought to the London’s St Thomas’s hospital on Monday afternoon, after his cough and high fever appeared to be persistent.
The Prime Minister himself wrote on Twitter he had been hospitalised following his doctor’s advice but he remained in “good spirits”.
A few hours later Mr Johnson was moved to the intensive care unit (ICU) of the hospital after his conditions worsened, Downing Street said in a statement.
It read: “The Prime Minister has been under the care of doctors at St Thomas’ Hospital, in London, after being admitted with persistent symptoms of coronavirus.
“Over the course of [Monday] afternoon, the condition of the Prime Minister has worsened and, on the advice of his medical team, he has been moved to the intensive care unit at the hospital.
“The PM is receiving excellent care, and thanks all NHS staff for their hard work and dedication.”
Sarah has taken to her social media platforms more than once since the coronavirus crisis started to thank NHS and frontline workers.
In late March, Fergie published a thought-provoking message on Instagram, where she said nature is taking back control.
She wrote: “Mother Nature has sent us to our rooms like the spoilt children we are.
“She gave us time and she gave us warnings. She was so patient with us.
“She gave us fire and floods, she tried to warn us but in the end she took back control.”
Over the past few weeks, Fergie also took care of NHS workers by delivering, alongside with her daughter Princess Eugenie and her son-in-law Jack Brooksbank, care packages for doctors, nurses and carers.
These packages contained food, such as dried pasta, pasta sauces, rice, cereal bars and tinned fruit.
In addition, there was also toothpaste, soap, shower gel, hand wash and anti-bacterial wipes – products disappeared from supermarkets’ shelves after panic buyers stripped them bare during the first few days of the crisis.
A friend of Eugenie and Jack told the Daily Mail: “They wanted to do anything they could to help.”
