FERGIE’S SISTER MIGHT NOT BE ROYAL, BUT HER LIFE IN AUSTRALIA IS NOTHING SHORT OF MAJESTIC
Jenny Brown

Jane Ferguson and Ramin Marzbani are romping barefoot on the beach with their two huge dogs and sand between their toes. A world away from palaces and privilege, Jane has a new home on NSW’s Central Coast, a successful business and a fresh lease on life with her “kind, clever” partner.

Her younger sister, Sarah, Duchess of York, also heartily approves of the romance that brings twice-divorced Jane so much joy.

“Oh yes, [Sarah and Ramin] have met and they got on like a house on fire,” laughs the youthful 64-year-old, explaining that the whole family met up for niece Princess Eugenie’s royal wedding three years ago.

“Sarah calls Ramin ‘The Headmaster’. Why? Because his general knowledge is incredible! He is like someone I’ve never really met before and he brings out the best in me, that’s for sure.

“Ramin is a special guy, I love being with him and I am with him most days,” Jane reveals, speaking exclusively to New Idea. “Will we get married? Probably not, because we’re happy as we are. We live together, work together, have fun together and we’re going on an adventure to Italy very soon.”

Jane counts her blessings every day, not least because it could have been a very sad and different story.

Six years ago, on July 9, Ramin died in front of her twice, after suffering a catastrophic heart attack in the emergency department at Sydney’s St Vincent’s Hospital.

“He thought he had eaten too much pizza and it was just heartburn, but then he collapsed,” Jane recalls of the terrifying ordeal. “He didn’t want to go to hospital but I drove him there, rather than calling an ambulance. Ten minutes later he had a heart attack and died right there on the table.”
