Sarah, Duchess of York — the ex-wife of Britain's Prince Andrew — has begun the process of establishing residency in Switzerland, she told Le Nouvelliste newspaper in an interview published on Wednesday.

The former Sarah Ferguson, widely known by her nickname "Fergie", said she wants to live in the ultra-chic ski resort village of Verbier, in the Canton of Valais, where she has been a frequent visitor.
   
"I want to officially become a Valaisian resident," she told the paper.

"The administrative process is ongoing."

She explained that she "discovered" Verbier as a 16-year-old, when her mother brought her to the Southern Swiss village for a holiday, and has regularly returned for family vacations since.

Sarah co-owns a chalet in the village with her ex-husband, Queen Elizabeth's second son from whom she divorced in 1996.
 
Britain's Embassy in Switzerland declined to comment on the duchess's attempt to establish Swiss residency.
