Duchess of York joins tribute to slain honeymoon couple
11 SEPTEMBER 2008 Speaking before the Cardiff memorial, at which she read Yeats' poem He Wishes For The Cloths Of Heaven, the Duchess said: "I think the whole world was taken by the tragedy of Ben and Catherine, who were taken away at such a young age".
Sarah has also agreed to become a patron of the Mullany fund, a charity set up in memory of the late couple to help finance prospective medical students and physiotherapists. Ben, 31, was a trainee physiotherapist and his new wife, also 31, was a GP. The Duchess has already donated £10,000 from the Sarah Ferguson Foundation.
"They were so in love and so happy…" she said. "It is just an extraordinary story."
