DUCHESS OF YORK Sarah Ferguson has taught her daughters BEATRICE and EUGENIE to keep smiling - because she's sick of seeing sullen royals.

The WEIGHTWATCHERS champion insisted her daughters always looked happy when captured by photographers, because people hated looking at miserable, spoiled brats.

She says, "I said to them that when they get out of the car, wherever they are in the world, they've got to smile because there's somebody on the 10th floor of a building in Oklahoma City or somewhere and they want to see Princesses that are smiling.

"They're from privilege and they've got great backgrounds, a very lucky life. 'Now smile and show the world it's OK, and don't look grumpy and sulky and put your head down, because that's a bore.'"
