Turkey’s social services have called for the Duchess of York, Sarah Ferguson to be prosecuted for secretly filming orphanages in the country.

They accuse her of going “against the law in acquiring footage and violating privacy,” according to the state-run Anatolia news agency

The duchess made an undercover trip to Turkey to examine orphanages for the ITV programme aired earlier this month.
