The Duchess of York's spokesperson announced Fergie was diagnosed with skin cancer last month

Sarah Ferguson has been seen in public for the first time since her cancer diagnosis was announced, as she was photographed in Miami.

The Duchess of York was seen attended the annual Haute Living 100 event in Miami, Florida earlier this week.

This event honours "influential individuals in Miami, including philanthropists, entrepreneurs, power couples, developers, creatives, athletes, hospitality power players, and more".

Sarah wore a military-style blazer from The Extreme Collection during her outing in Miami, which cost £1,125.

She paired this with a Dolce and Gabbana clutch bag and Geox black ankle boots.

This comes as the mother of Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie was diagnosed with malignant melanoma last month, which is a form of skin cancer.

The duchess, 64, spent much of last year recovering from breast cancer.

On January 21, her spokesperson released the following statement: "Her dermatologist asked that several moles be removed and analysed at the same time as the duchess was undergoing reconstructive surgery following her mastectomy, and one of these has been identified as cancerous.

"She is undergoing further investigations to ensure that this has been caught in the early stages.

"Clearly, another diagnosis so soon after treatment for breast cancer has been distressing but the duchess remains in good spirits.

"The duchess wants to thank the entire medical team which has supported her, particularly her dermatologist whose vigilance ensured the illness was detected when it was.

"She believes her experience underlines the importance of checking the size, shape, colour and texture and emergence of new moles that can be a sign of melanoma."

The NHS saw a huge surge in people looking for information on melanoma skin cancer after Sarah's diagnosis.

There was one visit every 13 seconds to the NHS website, according to reports, for information on melanoma in the two days following the announcement.

Some 13,662 visits were made in 48 hours, which was more than eight times higher than the same time during the previous week (1,624 visits).
