London: Duchess of York Sarah Ferguson believes Duchess of Cambridge Catherine is "entitled to have a moment alone" with her husband.

Ferguson spoke out after topless pictures of Catherine were published in a French magazine.

Ferguson, who was once photographed topless, said she has "total empathy" for Catherine.

"As you know, I`ve been there and have total empathy with the beautiful lady who does a beautiful job. Surely she`s allowed to have a moment alone to be with her husband," quoted Ferguson as saying.
