Title: Sarah, Duchess of York: News and Pictures
Post by: Kuei Fei on December 27, 2010, 07:11:17 pm
Fergie’s solo Christmas: No Andrew. No Eugenie or Bea. Just her (and a few servants)

Quote
Sarah Ferguson is going to end one of her worst years by spending Christmas Day all alone.
The Duchess of York was due to fly out to Norway to stay with her close friend Geir Frantzen, the frozen food magnate, but yesterday became the latest victim of the weather chaos when her flight was cancelled.

Now she will be rattling around in her ex-husband’s house tomorrow, while Prince Andrew and their daughters Beatrice and Eugenie join the rest of the Royal Family for a festive lunch hosted by the Queen at Sandringham.

^sorry KF i don't think that anyone  deserves to be in Xmas day alone... I know that you are not from europe, but here Xmas is like your Thanksgiving... It's so special and it's sad being alone at this time...

I agree that Christmas is a time to spend with family & good friends. Her girls could have stayed with her. Although I don't think that would have gone over well with the royal family, she is still their mother. It makes no sense to my why U. Gary would be an acceptable invite to William & Kate's wedding, but Fergie did not get an impromtu invite to the Sandringham Estate and is said to be excluded from the wedding guest list. The punishment should fit the crime, so to speak, and U. Gary is by far worse for the royals than Fergie could ever be! ...

I agree Earth Angel... Fergie was very close to william when he was a little boy... he spent more time with fergie than with princess Ann or even with the queen..
i dont say that she did right things not she did bad things... but she never did anything bad to him.. and was a close friend to his mother, that leave her alone... when relation with the royals were bad.. maybe she was the only one that understood diana... because they did the same to her...

Hey Byechoc :hi: , Christmas has the same meaning into countries celebrating that day.

Furthermore,  the BRF is certainly not living on "continental" Europe yet they are as Europeans as your are (by just taking a look at their ancestors).

Before the scandal (an other one) about her selling access to her own family, I would have agreed with you.  I actually thought that the BRF were very harsh on her by making her stay on a separate place (cottage) at Sandringham and not with her children&rest of the family on that day.

For sure they know her better and they (esp. Prince Philip was) were right about her...

She needs to learn for stopping making again, again... and again the same mistakes.  She has put her own family at high (security) risk for what?  Money.  $500,000 precisely.   :wopedo:

Miss Winfrey – who has signed up the Duchess to star in a new reality series in which she will undergo therapy on camera – told Parade magazine: ‘She sent me an email about how it’s so difficult to give up going to Spain this year.

(...) 'And I said, ‘You have no money. People who don’t have money don’t go to Spain on holiday. Hello!’

Someone really needed to tell her the truth.

Whilst I agree with you on how they been treating Diana...  After their divorces, they weren’t that close.

Anyway, I really doubt that Diana would have understood Fergie there.  

Diana knew how to hold a budget whether it was a small one (her salary as a nanny) or a big one (her inheritance by investing it into a flat and sharing it with friends or her allowances as an PoW).

Whereas Fergie (although having a job) was mostly spending her life on the phone talking about her "social" life.  After marrying Andrew, she began her excessive spending (far far over her budget!).  That’s why she owes money to HM.

Despite Diana was an aristocrat, she took a job at a very young age.  As a mother, she made her boys to deserve by meriting/working for what they want to get whether it was money (what she was naming as "pink/purple....grannies") or not.  
They were washing her car or else.  I think that the fact she died, while they were so young and having not a down-to-earth adult really around teaching them these basic lessons, explains how one of them to act as such a spoiled......

The day that Oprah gets married and has to deal with those dynamics, has a child and gains control over her personal weight, I'll listen to her advice.  If I had to shun every family member who made mistakes, there'd be the sound of one cricket at my home during Christmas (Uncle Gary aside).  Christmas isn't a time for judgment.

Title: Put a Royal Sock in it Sarah! - Telegraph article
Post by: Anne-Elliot on March 09, 2011, 01:24:01 pm
V. funny article!

Quote
Who would want to be the Duchess of York’s PR this week? Short of being caught in a YouTube tryst with Charlie Sheen, snorting cocaine off a *pavement walker* in a hot tub, Sarah Ferguson’s stock could not conceivably sink any lower.

At a time when her beleaguered, though still swaggering ex-husband, the Duke of York, is fighting for his future as Britain’s trade ambassador, her blunderingly gauche attempt to “support” him has merely piled Pelion on Ossa

I agree that some things are better left unsaid, however, Judith Woods and others apparently want the truth swept under the rug because it makes the entire country look bad. Well, this article didn't make the Brits look any better. Apparently they'd all rather live in their own little world where the truth is always considered better left unsaid. :thumbsdown: ...

I deem this article as ill in its premises as Judith Woods deems Sara! I'm convinced it's the British majority's collective cultural blindness that causes such willful ignorance.

Fergie footnote
http://www.independent.ie/lifestyle/fergie-footnote-2576691.html
Quote
There are some things in life you can depend on, such as the changing of the seasons or Sarah Ferguson being caught up in any royal scandal involving sex and money.

When Prince Andrew's estranged wife Sarah was caught, on camera, having her toes sucked by her "financial adviser" in August 1992, she kicked off an era when the royals became fair game for the paparazzi and prying investigators.

As the photos were splashed across the British tabloids, you could almost hear centuries of royal mystique come crashing to the ground.

The candid shots, featuring Texan John Bryan and a topless Fergie on a sun-lounger in the south of France, were at the heart of what the queen famously called her "annus horribilis" and began a decade of lurid royal revelations.

Sarah has continued to be a trial for the British royal family.

Quote
Given the latest problems to afflict her former husband, the British government might now be ruefully recalling the words of one cabinet minister who, 10 years ago, warned that the decision to appoint Prince Andrew as a trade ambassador was an "accident waiting to happen".

Time to stop duchess from exploiting her title

Quote
I’VE never been much exercised by the “doings” of the Royal family, except to admire the Queen’s stoical regard for her duty.

However, the latest debacle with regard to Prince Andrew has brought, once again, the ridiculous Duchess of York to the fore.

Will someone find a way to deny the title to this pointless air-head?

It may be that I live near York and that I am a native of Yorkshire but I find her increasingly stupid comments hard to endure. She has surely exploited her title long enough and though she has little, if anything, to do with this area she continues to milk the title for all its worth, mainly in the US.

One has to say that the Duke of York’s tolerance of the foolish woman says a great deal for his loyalty, even if he has little else to offer in his role as an overseas trade envoy.



Title: Re: Time to stop duchess from exploiting her title
Post by: Kuei Fei on March 12, 2011, 06:06:05 am
She hsould have lost it upon her divorce, admittedly along with Diana's princess title. In or out, royal or not.


Title: Re: Time to stop duchess from exploiting her title
Post by: Alexandrine on March 12, 2011, 03:47:25 pm
She does NOT have a title. Imagine that Andrew was known as Mr. Windsor so Sarah would use after her divorce to him Mrs. Windsor. Well in this case it's Duchess of York.

It's only courtesy and it's her legal right. Diana was after her divorce, "Diana, Princess of Wales".

The queen cannot do anything about it.

what is she whining on about - 'I chose to go and be in Thailand in a place called Camelia... the jungle embraced me,' she explained. She really does live on a different planet to the rest of us, I'm sure the rest of us would love to be able to 'choose' to jet off to Thailand whenever we're not invited to something. She obviously has no concept of the real world whatsoever. When your kids can afford to spend thousands of pounds on moronic looking headgear that would feed and clothe my kids for a whole year, she really has nothing to complain about at all.

I am sure she understands in a way why she was snubbed. However UG was there along with people the Couple barely knows.

It must have hurt to not see your Nephew whom you saw grow up and was close to marry. While Kate's Drug dealing Pimp Uncle could.While Elton John (who only met William twice and Kate never) could watch. While the Butcher and ShopKeeper who didn't know them was within a few feet.

There was a clear favouritism there.

Naturally Sarah was not invited. She isn't a memeber of the family. Yes her daughters were there, but that is different. I fail to see why she would think she should be invited. She is divorced and has been for some time.

No I don't think she gets it @ all.  The toe episode alone was enough to make people sick but I also agree with Mousiekins that if Uncle Fester was invited, then Sarah should be despite her not being a part of the royal family.  After all, Uncle Fester has more sins in his own closet that Fergie (@ least that's what I think but ladies, feel free to correct me on this one).  I do think that PW worships the Middletons that even a drug pimping like Fester would get away with it.

Post by: Varya on May 11, 2011, 03:45:23 am
Reading the people.com article I think she really does get it. She understands that the reason she was not invited was because of her own mistakes... and even with that knowledge a rejection like that (especially when a known and filmed criminal- Uncle and Pimp/Drug Dealer Gary- was invited) has to have hurt.

I don't care what others say... I like Sarah and I always have. If her ex and her daughters still have her as part of their lives, who am I to say she should or shouldn't be there. At least she's tried to own up to her mistakes, and let's face it she (like Chelsy) has always been the "bad" ex wife of a prince, even before she did anything.

I agree - if anything it's making Sarah looked foolish; however, I understand that Sarah seems to gravitate towards Oprah because Oprah helped Sarah with her debts.

Sarah Ferguson is Debt Free! Oprah Winfrey Helps Duchess of York Sarah Ferguson Get Back on Her Feet

SARAH Ferguson is officially out of debt — and it’s all thanks to Oprah Winfrey.

Sarah — the shamed Duchess of York — has been taping a reality TV series, Finding Sarah, for Oprah’s OWN cable network, now set to air sometime this summer, which helped pay off a substantial portion of the $7 million debt hanging over her head.

Fergie — who as caught on a hidden video camera trying to shake down a reporter posing as a business for $500,000 in exchange for meeting her ex-husband, Prince Andrew — has fired most of her staff and been counseled by Oprah’s financial guru, Suze Ormond, about living within her means.  A spokesman for Fergie says Andrew helped clear the debt but “there are a number of television and book projects in the pipeline this year, both in America and the UK, which will begin to bring in revenue.” 

Recent reports claimed Sarah is furious that she hasn’t been invited to Prince William’s wedding to Kate Middleton.

“Sarah is devastated that she hasn’t been invited,” a source told the PopEater website.

Hasn’t she been punished enough by the family? Sarah is down on her luck and this is the same as kicking a person while they are down.

“Sarah was hoping that the wedding would provide her with the opportunity to spend quality time with the family and prove she can and does deserve to be part of the family.

“Any hope she ever had of being invited back into the fold is over. Sarah might be the last person on earth to finally get it but even she knows now she’s not welcome.

“The Duchess will be watching the wedding on television just like the rest of the world, but not from England.

“It will be too painful for her to be in London. She will be abroad. Once again trying to start her life knowing that kissing a prince doesn’t guarantee a happy ending.”

Well she only has to look at her behaviour as to why she was left out. I dont think it has anything to do with divorce, because the Duke of Kent's estranged wife got invited. I think if Fergie hadnt of buggered it up with the cash for access sting she might of been given an invite.

She brought all that on herself. She isn't down on her luck, she has sabotaged herself and she has done more than enough damage to herself. People get down on their luck through no fault on their own, that is why it's called being down on their 'luck.' Luck isn't something you can control.

Quote
“Sarah was hoping that the wedding would provide her with the opportunity to spend quality time with the family and prove she can and does deserve to be part of the family.

Quality time with people she tried to sell and quality time with the daughters she already clutches as tickets to a social life, since they were sixteen? This isn't some family graduation ceremony and this isn't some silly barbecue wedding in the backyard.

Quote
“Any hope she ever had of being invited back into the fold is over. Sarah might be the last person on earth to finally get it but even she knows now she’s not welcome.

Finally, something filters through her thick skull.

“The Duchess will be watching the wedding on television just like the rest of the world, but not from England.

At least she is doing that with herself.

Quote
“It will be too painful for her to be in London. She will be abroad. Once again trying to start her life knowing that kissing a prince doesn’t guarantee a happy ending.”

After she kissed Andrew, she had a title, security, and could easily have made a living all her own as a military wife, but chose not to. She wasn't guaranteed or owed anything more than what she made out of what she was given by God and by her marriage to Prince Andrew. She had more from that than anyone else could have dreamed off and as for her pain of being in London, she has no business being there anyway. At least she's being decent in this respect.

I agree but I don't think Fergie will ever stop rubbing elbows to Americans who saved her financially.  Kissing butt to Oprah is the way to go, after all, it was Oprah who was there for her right after her divorce and when she got booted out of the royal family.   She's legendary of spending more than she has.  I think Fergie loves money too much to know the meaning of the word "enough."  Fergie is Fergie, as leopards can not change their spots.  She will always be this way.   :whistle:


Yes, Princess Alucard, Fergie had her toes sucked from one of her "supposedly financial adviser" when Pr. Andrew was away in the military.  Apparently she got lonely as a military wife.  Not a nice quality in a spouse, royal or otherwise IMO.


Title: Re: That's Fruity! Fergie flashes those toes but this time for classy photoshoot
Post by: Kuei Fei on May 21, 2011, 03:08:38 am
I think Oprah is 'helping' her because Oprah likes the control and likes the connection via Fergie to the RF. I think this is the real reason the RF banned her, because of the scummy people (Midds aside, but Kate is the bride and certain things are unavoidable) Fergie is associated with. Beatrice looked like a dork, but a lot of people had silly hats on for the occasion. Fergie is so pig stupid it's unreal; there's some sort of switch broken inside of her and I am sure that she will keep sinking mentally and emotionally until the final, self destructive act that either puts her in a grace or puts her in a hospital (psyche ward).

most likely the bentley belongs to the royals, as for protection officers most likely again coming out of their own pocket since the public taxes are not responisable for them anymore.  As for Sarah shopping she has the right to do so, maybe her daughter is buying her stuff now you never know.  IMO it's not the publics business what Sarah is doing or what she is shopping for, the public isn't paying for her anymore, and if she goes bankrupt then that's her PERSONAL business not the publics.

So sick of this obnoxious woman and her annoying daughters. It's ironic that she expects all kinds of perks associated with a royal lifestyle that she is no longer entitled to. Meanwhile William and Kate who will one day be King and Queen of England are trying to live a simple lifestyle and don't want all the trappings that come with being a royal. Sarah would do well to take a few lessons in attitude and shopping from Kate.

People really should stop giving her what she wants. Then maybe, just maybe, she might go away ... how many times is going to be blubbering on television?  :-

I'm glad she spends time with her daughters, but sometimes I think she uses them as a tool, or views them as her personal credit card.  :think:

The woman needs help, to accept responsibility for her own failings and to grow up. I don't see evidence of any of that.

Sitting on Oprah's coach is not the answer for her. Talk to any psychologist and I'll bet they will tell you that this is the type of thing that is only feeding her colossal ego and addiction to self.

She doesn't have title.

She has the right, as do ALL divorced wives of peers, to use their former title as a surname - just like Diana became Diana, Princess of Wales she became Sarah, Duchess of York.  The various wives of Earl Spencer, after their divorces have used 'own name, Countess Spencer' as their names.  It is the normal thing to do for divorced wives of peers of the realm.

If Kate and William divorced she would be Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge.

And yet most people do - particularly if they have children.

The change is in fact in a woman's first name e.g. if you look at how Carole Middleton is labelled when she attends Ascot it is as Mrs Michael Middleton but if she divorced Michael she would be Mrs Carole Middleton.

If you have had name for some time then why change it just because you are divorced.

None of my divorced friends have returned to their maiden names.

This event however was to do with the Teenage Cancer Trust and just happened to be in Cambridge - thus the patron/trustee of that charity was the one who was there to open it.

If it had been held anywhere else Sarah would have been the one to open it because of her long-standing support for this charity.  Just because it is in Cambridge doesn't meant that it should be Kate to open it.

If something associated with one of Kate's charities was to open in York I would expect Kate to open it ahead of one of the York family.

The place name in their titles is just that 'a name' while their commitment to their charities is what is important and Sarah, despite all her other gaffs, has been a loyal worker for her charities and she has tried, successfully, to engage her daughters in charity work with both the girls now having their own charitable interests and patronages.

Duchess of York: These children give me hope and faith

In an exclusive interview on the 20th anniversary of the charity she founded, the Duchess of York tells Jane Clinton how much Children In Crisis means to her.




Quote
The Duchess Of York is feeling inspired. The charity she founded, Children In Crisis, is 20 years old this year and she has just returned from one of its latest projects: building a school in Liberia, West Africa.

“When I was there I was so completely happy,” says the Duchess, the charity’s founder and Life President. “It felt like there was blood flowing through my veins again. When I meet the children and people of Liberia it gives me hope, excitement, curiosity and total faith.”

Children In Crisis gives youngsters the education they need to help transform their lives in some of the world’s poorest, most dangerous and conflict-ridden countries, including Liberia, Afghanistan and the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

Since the charity began in 1993 it has helped 1.3million children but its work also includes training teachers as well as vocational skills training and the education of women. It is, says the Duchess, Sarah Ferguson, about empowering communities while remaining sensitive to their culture.

“When I started Children In Crisis I said we must provide support to allow cultures to live in dignity having achieved for themselves. For example we don’t give fish, we give the people rods so they can catch their own fish,” she explains.


Quote
“The whole point of our charity work is to give children the right to an education and to dare to dream. It is about the forgotten children, the forgotten places, the forgotten countries.”

The Duchess’s recent trip was to Monrovia in Liberia to see the sixth and latest school project due to open next month. Until then a couple of tiny mud huts serve as a school for the children there.

With the co-operation of FAWE (Forum for African Women Educationalists) and the local community that has supplied land, sand and wood, a nine-classroom school is under construction. It will have a teachers’ office, library, separate latrines for boys and girls, and a water point.

“Sometimes charity work is very absorbing because the more you do, the more you realise how much there is to do,” admits the Duchess.

“It is such a gift to be able to be in a position to do something about it. Going to Liberia and other places makes me think that I can do something and I can be useful.”

Sarah, Duchess of York is invited to join the Queen at Baroness Thatcher's funeral
The Duke of York's former wife is to join the mourners at the funeral of Margaret Thatcher, whom she describes as a 'steadfast friend'.



Often described as a divisive figure during her life, Baroness Thatcher is to undertake a remarkably unifying act after her death.
Mandrake can disclose that Sarah, Duchess of York has been invited to the funeral of the former prime minister. Fergie has been persona non grata at events attended by the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh since she divorced the Duke of York in 1996.
“Sarah is honoured to have been invited and intends to go,” says one of Fergie’s friends. “She wants to pay her respects to Lady Thatcher.”
The Duchess featured on the front pages of newspapers when she did not attend the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s wedding in 2011. She had been a close friend of Prince William’s mother for many years until they fell out before Diana, Princess of Wales’s death.
Fergie’s spokesman declines to comment on the invitation. However, the Duchess told me last week that Lady Thatcher had been a “steadfast” friend to her.

I think Sarah's outfit is ok, it's length appropriate, buttoned-up and black. The problem is the jacket is too-tight for her, bad fit.

Another problem is Sarah's desire to pull-goofy faces, at the funeral.  :-

On a positive note, it's good to see she was still thought of by Baroness Thatcher.

True she didn't do anything wrong, I do like her outfit really but the fit is bad.

I just think that after 30 years in the press, Sarah should know that the press is always on the lookout to make her look bad and her Fergie fun lady facial expressions at a high profile funeral should be kept at bay. That is what she never understood the press is not her friend, they will always watch her to put her back into the old box. The press doesn't ever want to rewrite a image once created and Fergie's faces even if brief gave them their money shot.
But altogether it's harmless, I am glad to see her there and that she was well thought of by the Baroness.

We don't know what she was doing.  We have two photos but no context for those photos. Without the context the photos themselves are meaningless.

We know that there was a lot of laughter during the service - that was audible to anyone who watched it.

Sarah could have been doing a lot of things when those photos were taken and the DM, as usual with Sarah, chose the ones that show her in the worst light and her detractors, again as usual, jump on her.

The pair, who still share Andrew’s Royal Lodge home at Windsor despite divorcing in 1996, went to Scott’s in Mayfair, London, on Wednesday.

Fergie had attended Baroness Thatcher’s funeral earlier.

Friendly exes? Sarah Ferguson and Prince Andrew enjoy a night out at Loulou's, leaving the club separately but not far behind each another


Most failed marriages don’t result in cosy friendships.
But Sarah, Ferguson Duchess of York, and Prince Andrew seem to be on good terms as they were spotted leaving LouLou’s nightclub shortly after each other.
The pair looked elegant as they left the exclusive private members club in London’s Mayfair on Wednesday.

When Sarah had her title and plenty of money, she threw it all away; if Sarah had stayed on, Diana would have been the outsider and Sarah would still have the "HRH" and handsome husband and probably more princes and princesses as time went by. She then lost it and is now begging to be let back in.

Maybe she would have been happier if she married a rich aristo (since she likes the $$$$) instead of Andrew. I think Koo stark would have made a better wife for Andrew. I read an article about Koo and I was really blown away with the way she came across. But maybe being in the limelight might have finished off Koo too who knows.

Fergie's problem is that because of her English lineage, she thought she was better than the Windsors. Diana admittedly made that same mistake. They both thought they were more powerful and smarter, but go figure, both ended up in messes. Koo was only scuppered because she had one minor indiscretion as a teenager, harmless really. I believe she would have been a faithful wife, hardworking royal duchess and less of a woman interested in reliving her life through her children. Why Koo was scuppered because of a harmless indiscretion while it was okay for Fergie to cavort with a bunch of smutty types and behave like a dame in a saloon is beyond me.


Title: Re: Sarah, Duchess of York: News and Pictures
Post by: Snokitty on July 13, 2013, 05:45:09 am
Because some people really do believe that you are a better person just naturally if you have a title. The title means certain things are overlooked because well you know they are just better than everyone else. The title in GB means something to some and look at all the Midds did for years just to get that title. Notice now they act all superior and self important. I crack up laughing every time I see James trying to project an image of sexy man about town.   :laugh:

The title is why Sarah and her little quirks weren't bothered with until she humiliated Andrew in a world wide way. Andrews title was bigger and so she had to go.

I think Sarah wasn't a big catch herself; supposedly teh courtiers were cool at the idea of her joining the RF and didn't see her as wife material for Andrew.

The thing with Sarah is, that some women have a rotten draw in life with men. She's never been considered wife material even by the men she gives her all to and I did mention the possibility of her being Andrew's mistress for so long. I wonder if her sorry destiny is to be a mistress and not a wife to prominent men.

I pity her as well.

Unfortunately, she continues to come across as pathetic and does not seem to have a handle on her insecurities and emotional problems.

This is one of the many reasons I don't think they should remarry. 

You can't send her out in the public as a representative of the Queen.  She's unhinged and unpredictable.  She's not a good role model and will only cause further embarrassment. 

I bet she's great fun to be around. Imagine sitting between Sarah and Harry at dinner, it would be a riot.  I'm fine with her playing the role of Andrew's wife privately within the RF.  I just don't like her in any official role.

Sarah did better when she was sent out to represent the Queen than Kate or William has.

There is a lot more to Sarah than just the things the press says about her. Sarah may fail a lot but she has never given up trying. She has supported her charities over the years and written children's books.

The royals are a very dysfunctional bunch. I would say Sarah fits right in with them.

Post by: Kuei Fei on September 13, 2013, 08:13:22 pm
^That is the reason Sarah should stay out of it; the RF is a mess, but Sarah would only make it messier. It would also 'reward' her lounging around Andrew's life and it's not like we liked the same about Kate, Kate getting a ring after lounging around William's life and getting rewarded with a ring and title.

Let her continue to be part of Andrew's life if that is what Andrew wants, but as a formal wife, she had her chance and threw it away. Andrew never publicly denounced Sarah for her actions and that alone shows she didn't deserve him as a husband. Throw in her adultery and binge spending and she was endless trouble.

Before thirty she had the world by the tail and she might have ended up part of the RF while Diana was pushed out; her stupidity and ingratitude got her tossed out and it's a bit of a slap in the face when you see how she could even make her own practical living and Diana was restricted from engaging in commercial practices as a result.

Sarah doesn't just lounge around and Andrew just like William married the woman he wanted and was not forced. Sarah wasn't liked by the courtiers and they spent many hours trying to break up the marriage. Sarah and Diana got different divorce settlements so was Sarah supposed to never be able to make her own money because she was married to Andrew once.

Why Koo was scuppered because of a harmless indiscretion while it was okay for Fergie to cavort with a bunch of smutty types and behave like a dame in a saloon is beyond me.

Basically because Koo's indiscretion was on video and being billed as an American soft port actress wouldn't fly well within the Palace  or with the public, no matter how sweet Koo was in reality. Sarah was called firey, a breath of fresh air, but she had lived with Paddy McNally who rejected her desire to take the relationship to engagement and told her the best thing she could do for herself was to be with Andrew once he found out Sarah had been invited to a weekend with the Royals through Diana. Sarah was given the go ahead because compared to Koo's press image, she seemed a more acceptable to the Courtier's, even though the Courtiers were said to still be quietly searching for a Princess or another Aristo connected lady for Andrew. The Courtier's weren't exactly happy about Sarah (many said right from the beginning that she was a loose cannon who would not be able to cut it) but the Queen liked her, Diana liked her, Charles liked her and Andrew ended up falling for her,but sadly Sarah blew it all to shreds with her behavior.

In America the British press were busy tearing Koo to shreds in the papers, to insure her image was damaged in the public and she had no press mouthpiece to help her fight back, it was too late once the UK Press decided to go after her and decided she wasn't suitable.  I always felt sorry for Koo, she had a lot of potential , but that one act in the 80's of making a soft porn film, put her out of the running, but really we've seen just as much of Kate out on the balcony in France, but Kate wasn't making a film.  :tehe:

had the queen forced Chuck to either pick his future wife (Camz), or his throne....you'd have bet that his throne would have been the first choice.  

And had the Queen put down her foot when Diana came to her about Camz and ordered Chuck to stop fooling around, perhaps Chuck and Di could have forged at the very least a friendship out of their marriage.

chuck is weak...but the Queen is even weaker.

I will never understand the why the own Charles fans be in denial when Charles himself said never loved the woman he married and yes always prefered the mistress, even the home he bought when courting his future wife is in neighborhood of mistress. Some like it or not he must know his own feelings. No one around back then denied/put down the feelings of Charles for mistress when he choiced marry someone else.
-----

As for Sarah:
I also think she looks good compared to others who are in BRF now - IMO this not meant such big thing, as isnt this hard find someone better than that weird bunch. But IMO if Sarah really intended back to that family (re-marry Andrew) the mess will be even bigger than in 1980s/90s.

I never read the troubles of Sarah & Andrew were anything related to press (The press never was the reason of trouble in marriages of the Queen's sons, only scapegoat for people dont like admit their faults & mistakes.), but yes, Andrew be much of time away (IIRC she know it will happens when she married him), and she believe she could be another socialite in the world, her problem was she wanted this lifestyle via public money. :sigh:

Quote
That is the reason Sarah should stay out of it; the RF is a mess, but Sarah would only make it messier.
IMO it will be a PR disaster have Camilla, Kate & Fergie together as in-laws. Sarah again will be suffering the consequences, after all she's her own worst enemy, Andrew havent a good rep nor is someone else important in family, indeed, his image have worsened alot in other words Sarah will be used as scapegoat in an even bigger level.

I think it's too bad Andrew didn't fight for Koo; things would have been tighter between the US and UK and Koo would have lived it down.

I find it surprising that the Windsors didn't put a stop to Fergie until they knew her and knew her well enough to realize she was bad news. I mean, no stable job, stable income, no sort of love life that would indicate that she has anything together and apparently she was more suitable than Koo, who at least had a life of her own beyond being a ski groupie?

This is one thing I will never understand; big warning signs should have been flying when the courtiers even HAD to do a cleanup operation of her background. When they knew that Fergie hadn't really held down a consistent work schedule and had been wearing tight denim black jeans while being a vampy groupie of the ski set, they should have just told her to take a huge hike and take her past with her. She supposedly held down a job for a while, but never really got herself an organized life. The Windsors made the same mistake they made with Townsend, using a minor blight on someone's past to end up ruining a potentially great marriage. Koo was seventeen when that happened and by all accounts was underage and can't be held responsible for her actions; I would wonder where her parents are and where the police were, who should have been arresting the film crew.

Koo could have pleaded exploitation or something and she would have ended up just fine. A minor brief scandal, small, and then smooth sailing. Instead Andrew married someone who might have looked good on paper, but go figure, the Windsors ended up with another mess. Princess Margaret's ex-husband was PR gold, but ended up being a disaster.

Its not the courtiers who have to live with a "suitable" companion, or be intimate with.   Not all Royals are like Chuck who can do his wife, while thinking of his mistress. :thumbsdown:

If the Royals only married other royals, eventually in the next generation or two, the gene pool gets rather small.  As it is, Victoria's descendents are IN most of the Royal houses..In order to keep the bloodline from getting too closely related, you need to bring in new blood.

 My mate Fergie: Extraordinary enduring friendship of Duchess of York and mum from council estate
As they hug at a reunion organised by the Sunday Mirror, it is with the tearful affection of two women who adore each other's company


hey are the most unlikely of friends.

One is a duchess whose home is a 30-room mansion in the grounds of royal Windsor Park.

The other lives on benefits in a terraced council house on a rundown estate in Hull.

But, incredibly, Sarah Ferguson and Tonia Sargerson have somehow bridged the enormous social chasm that lies between them.

And when they hug each other at a reunion organised by the Sunday Mirror, it is with the genuine tearful affection of two women who simply adore each other’s company.

Their extraordinary friendship was forged during a much-criticised TV documentary five years ago, when Weight Watchers ambassador Fergie went to East Yorkshire to advise Tonia’s hard-up family on beating obesity.

The controversial royal was accused of preaching to the hard-up Sargersons during her six months filming on Hull’s Preston Road estate.

And the family said she couldn’t wait to get away from them.

But when the cameras stopped rolling, something remarkable that the critics hadn’t foreseen took place.

Sarah Ferguson and Downton Abbey's Lord Julian Fellowes to make a royal film follow-up
THE DUCHESS of York’s rapprochement with the Queen, when she was invited to spend a summer weekend at Balmoral after a long period in the cold, has paid commercial dividends for Prince Andrew’s former wife.


I hear she has been allowed access to the royal library at Windsor Castle to research a sequel to Young Victoria, the film she co-produced with Martin Scorsese four years ago, starring Emily Blunt.

Sarah now wants to make a film about Prince Albert and to invite Julian Fellowes, who wrote the script for Young Victoria, to write the screenplay.

“It’s very early days,” a spokesman for the duchess tells me, “but she does want to make another film, this time based on Albert, and she would like to ask Julian to come on board.”

The project gets the thumbs up from Lord Fellowes who told me: “I’m up to my eyes in other things, like Downton and the Wind In The Willows, but I would love to write a follow up to Young Victoria, although I haven’t been approached yet.”

Duchess of York opens new cancer unit in Southampton
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-hampshire-25404741
Quote
Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York, has officially opened a new multimillion-pound cancer unit in Southampton.
The £2.4m 10-bed facility at Southampton General Hospital has been funded by the Teenage Cancer Trust.
It has been offering specialist treatment to people aged 16 to 24 from the South of England and the Channel Islands since September.
Roger Daltrey, lead singer of The Who, pulled out of the event due to illness.
'£1,000-a-day'
Facilities at the unit - which has taken eight months to build - include six inpatient en-suite bedrooms, four day care beds, a large social room and a 24/7 kitchen area.
A trust spokeswoman said many of the unit's features were designed by young cancer patients, alongside the hospital architect.

hope this Trust can help a lot of cancer patients ...after watching my mother die of cancer anyone helping with others that are suffering this way has respect from me

Do you guys think that Sarah will slowly be moved back into a royal role? She's making official appearances and she's certainly been welcomed back by being allowed to stay at the main house at Balmoral (during the summer). It was a mistake to take Fergie in untrained the way she was, but realistically I believe that if she abides and stays out of trouble, serious trouble, then she might be allowed in if she accepts that she won't be given the same free hand she was given before.

^I don't think she will ever have a royal role again.  She's not really making official appearances, it's not clear to me why she opened this hospital wing - either they called on her to fill in after Roger Daltry pulled out, or she has some personal link with the hospital.  I doubt it was an "official" thing.

I've always felt that Andrew keeps her close because that is a safer strategy than having her out on her own being a loose cannon.  HM and PP are completely over her, and basically she is allowed to be so close to Andrew because he is the favourite child of HM.

^Don't Fergie and Andrew live together, at times?  Somewhere in my memory bank I recall that.  They are, evidently, very good friends which is a bonus for their children.  I wouldn't be shocked to see them marry again, but more likely after HM is no longer with us, knock on wood.

They live together at the Royal Lodge, Andrew got it after the QM passed away.  Fergie's settlement included an amount to buy a house but it never happened, she lived in rented houses until her house burned down, then she moved into the Royal Lodge.  It's all a bit strange if you ask me.

The main barrier to remarriage is PP.  He can't stand Fergie.


Title: Re: Sarah, Duchess of York: News and Pictures
Post by: Kuei Fei on December 19, 2013, 03:50:35 am
I believe Sarah still lives at Royal Lodge rent free.

Thing is, that I think they're waiting for Beatrice to marry since I think as a married couple, Sarah and Andrew would be a hindrance and would be working on their image rehabilitation more and it would be out of character for them to ignore their girls while working on themselves.

So they wait until there's an official announcement and a wedding. I don't know if Sarah would function well, along with the fact that Andrew really hasn't expanded his horizons or grown up, but Sarah misses the security of royal life and the respect and a lot of the other benefits she was stripped of the minute she left royal life.

I just don't know if she has matured.

Thing is, that each time she seems to mature, she is caught out messing with the RF or something else. She can't seem to balance her finances and I wonder if she is unstable in some mental area. She's still self destructive. After "The Young Victoria" and other successes, she was on top, but blew it big time with the access scandal.


Title: Re: Sarah, Duchess of York: News and Pictures
Post by: cate1949 on December 19, 2013, 06:34:10 am
 I think a part of what bonds Fergie and Andy is their mutual secrets and acceptance of each other's faults and vices. 

I do doubt that they will remarry - and the seeming examples of acceptance we see now are 1) because eventually the girls will marry and Fergie will have to be part of that and 2) another rehab attempt with Fergie 3) keep her close and out of trouble - especially for the sake of the daughters.

Fergie is kind of tragic - she obviously - and she has said this herself - deeply regrets having blown her marriage and life with the RF.  She was to some extent encouraged by Diana who saw the Andrew Fergie divorce as a stalkinghorse for her own divorce.  She did get caught up in the atmosphere of rebellion and misbehavior that was going on in the family at the time and she simply wasn't strong enough as a person to wthstand all those influences and know what she really wanted.  One has to admit that once she was left outside - she did work and actually had a lot of successes including her children's books.  But she always self destructed and that blew back on the RF.

I think she is now united with Andrew  and trying to assure a place for their daughters re: the changes PC is making in the RF.  Another Fergie scandal would simply be too much negative press for the girls and it is clear she and Andrew whatever their faults - love those girls and want the best for them.

It is odd that she just when she gets her stuff together she ruins it, for example, cash for access scandal. Almost as it someone was briefing against her... I don't believe the cash for access sting was the first time, probably been going on for years so why the sting?

I don't believe that Andy didn't know about it..........beyond getting a stipend from his mother, where else does his cash come from?

Look to Chuck.  If anyone of the royal family tipped off the press about Sarah, I'd lay odds that its chuck.  There is no way that he wants the focus off his sons and his direct line.  what better way to further marginalize the yorkie princesses by reporting what Mom and Dad have been up to?  Guilt by association.


Title: Re: Sarah, Duchess of York: News and Pictures
Post by: serene grace on December 19, 2013, 03:50:42 pm
They way Sarah said she could get Andrew, IMO implied he was in on it. That's just my opinion.
I think he did it at times to help her make a bit of cash on the side.

I think several of those RF stings were Charles sponsored, from Sophie's( a former employees gave an interview and said Charles sponsored the Sophie sting, and Edward press on failures concerning Ardent, Charles supposedly did not want them working and he also wanted them damaged according to the former employees, so Charles could in turn build up Camilla) I think PC was in on the UGary sting, to even Kate's nude sunbathing exposure. Charles is cut throat and takes no prisoners, he's been around a long time and knows where all the bodies are buried.
I think they (PC) possibly wanted Williams Queen tainted in some way, and the nude sunbathing was the opportunity.

To get back to Sarah, I think the powers that be on the inside decide to expose her dirty dealings, cash for contact.

Correct......look to Chuck.

IMO< its Chuck who is behind keeping Kate in the background.  He doesn't want the competition of his son and the son's family.  He wants the focus to be on him and Camz as the next King and Queen.  Look at how much he hated being in Diana's shadow...there is no way that he will allow another inlaw to outshine the birth royals.
 
And he never like his former-sister-in-law either.  Felt that she was a "bad" influence on Diana.  Chuck should watch out however.  Willy also knows where the bodies are buried...and if chuck thought he had a war of the wales with Diana, IMO, its nothing that is coming when Willy decides to go up against the old man.

I don't buy into a lot of the conspiracy theories re: the Queen as she has shown time and time again that she avoids confrontation, she avoids dicey situations and she lets PP run the family.  But Charles is a whole nother matter - so yes I'd bet he has been behind some of these "stings" - we know for certain he got Sophie - we know he was mixed up in the demise of Ardent and I'd bet he has been involved with Fergie.  LOL - family gatherings must feature an undercurrent of resentments and mistrust - what a crew.

It would be just common sense to make sure Kate and Will don't get too popular - there are already many people who would prefer the crown pass Charlie by.  Charles is well known for his various campaigns - and he has the influential friends to help him.  Look at the whole "Diana is crazy" whisper campaign - which really worked - a lot of people  still think she was slightly bonkers.

Jimmy Saville claimed he did little "jobs" for the royals - too bad we can't find his diary - wonder how many people Charles skunked through Jimmy's efforts?

I wonder why Sarah disliked performing duties when she was married to Andrew, but is so active now and has been since her divorce. Charitable stuff, tours, appearances, that kind of thing. I often think she would like to be a royal in her own right and would prefer to be able to do this until the end of time.

I don't think she has at all; there's something rotten about her and something I don't think is good for her daughters or for the RF or for Andrew. Look, she's nearly fifty, but has blown every chance she might have had to get herself together. She has had millions, blew them, and has blown any chance she had to remarry while HM and Philip are around.

She keeps acting like she's royal, but I wonder, how many times is she still going to mess up? She's not at all changed and I think a lot of her past counts against her.

Before she was married to Andrew she was known as a ski groupie and pressured McNally to marry her, demanding it all the time and being a complete vamp. She had no real direction, dropped any steady job she might have had, and certainly hasn't shown any fiscal responsibility. According to a biography she ahd an overdraft at hte time of her marriage. She blew HM's money like water and spent the majority of her time mooching off of her connections to her kids, which to me IS bad parenting.

I think it's disturbing that she's never really done anything productive or solid or trained and gotten a real career since twenty years ago (her divorce) and she's still living with her ex-husband, which is freeloading. I don't think she's solid and since her daughters have distanced themselves, both girls are thriving. As for adulthood, she should have been an adult by age twenty-six and by the time she was married, but she acted like the RF owed her everything.

Post by: Spice on December 21, 2013, 04:32:48 am
I agree that there are a lot of similarities between Sarah and Waity but IMO Sarah doesn't have the narcissism of Waity, she's basically harmless and a bit of a clutz.


Title: Re: Sarah, Duchess of York: News and Pictures
Post by: Kuei Fei on December 21, 2013, 07:13:10 am
I think Sarah has plenty of narcissism, I think in fact she rivals Waity in that area. I sometimes wonder what it would have been like if she had been stripped of her courtesy title after the cash scandal or perhaps even after her marriage. Letting her keep it was a huge mistake on HM's part.

Sarah (along with Diana, but that's another story) largely looked down on the Windsors, viewing her Stuart lineage as more impressive and yet, the dipwit never learned that lineage isn't the point and if she were SO superior, why wasn't she making something more of her life beyond being a ski bunny and chalet groupie.

Harmless people don't try to exploit their ex husband to get a mountain of cash.

Sarah is 54, in six years she will be sixty and she still hasn't changed or learned a single thing from her mistakes. She's still scrounging around, labeling her ex as her 'bestest friend,' spends time living with her ex, apparently hasn't even tried to move into her own home, hasn't bought a home to retreat to (renting was a huge mistake), and hasn't at all bothered to build a trust account so she can live off of the income and end up living a secure and comfortable life without relying on Andrew.

I don't think Andrew has moved on, mainly since he lacks the balls to throw his leech wife out on her arse to sink or swim. He won't move on and find someone nice to share his later years in life with mainly since he never gives himself a chance. If he wanted, if he had the guts, he would end up asking the courtiers to get rid of her once and for all and the courtiers would gladly do it, merrily do it in fact. Yet he won't. She's treating him like she treated Paddy McNally, making it clear that Andrew is HERS and she isn't going away.

I think she is harmless compared to Waity, in terms of her impact  on the monarchy.  Sarah is but a footnote of history.  Her main characteristic is immaturity.  Waity is more than a footnote (unfortunately).  She will bring the House of Windsor down, one way or another.

One thing they both have in common is that they snared clueless princes who should have known better.


Title: Re: Sarah, Duchess of York: News and Pictures
Post by: cate1949 on December 21, 2013, 08:52:29 am
I have sympathy for Sarah that I do not have for Kate.  Sarah had her mother abandon the family when she was a kid - and she was sort of raised by her father.  I say sort of because she had very little in the way of limits or guidance and he was often not even around.

She has a compulsive disorder - she compulsively overeats hence her life long struggle with weight - she compulsively over spends hence her indebtedness.  That compulsiveness is a mental disorder for which she has tried to get help but failed (keep trying).  She has horrendous issues with self esteem - understandably but also related to her problems with weight.  She always tried to please people and so never asserted effectively her own needs.  She was clearly no match for Diana nor Diana's schemes.  And it did not help for a somewhat overweight woman who was not that pretty to be constantly compared to the slim, gorgeous and always fashionably dressed Diana.  Her husband is an interesting character - interesting sexual history and she was alone for long stretches during the marriage while he was away with the Navy doing who knows what to whom knows what.  No wonder she got herself into trouble - and dealing with the RF with no support from him cause he was not there.  She was led to believe that when they married she would move with him on his overseas assigments but when the time came - she had to stay at home.  The tabloids were truly and utterly viscious to her and delighted when she fell.

She was outmatched, outclassed, in over her head, received little support and got utterly screwed when the divorce settlement time came.  Yet she has never said anything unkind about Di or the Queen or Andrew.  She has always worked since the divorce. 

She lives with constant regret over the decisions she made and has never been able to establish another relationship after Andy.  I think she is a sad example - almost tragic - and I do feel sorry for her.  She has though a great relationship with her daughters who are very loyal to her - and their loyalty makes it clear she has redeeming qualities.

She and Diana paid a high price for their rebellions.


Title: Re: Sarah, Duchess of York: News and Pictures
Post by: Kuei Fei on December 21, 2013, 09:47:11 am
After Diana died, Sarah could have started anew and could have possibly earned her way back in if she had been smart and thing is, that Sarah might have been able to stay on and remain and HRH while Diana ended up getting herself thrown out via the Queen Mother (apparently Diana dissed the QM to a friend and the QM found out) and would have been snug and secure with a a loving husband and heatlhy kids (with more if she wanted them) and had Diana required to curtsy to her upon greeting. Stupidly Sarah didn't realize just how she had it and didn't appreciate how many cards she would have had over Diana if she had had half a brain. As for being herself, Sarah had at no point ever figured herself out, so how could she be herself outside the RF only?

Sarah didn't rebel, she walked away and shirked her duty to her family and country and herself. Diana reacted to the double life she was leading and flaked out, any sane person would. Sarah's husband was faithful, he was fairly vice free compared to his brothers, and go figure, that wasn't good enough for Sarah. As for her mother abandoning the family, that has happened to a ton of families and most don't let it get them down. Sarah had an unstable life beforehand and chose to continue that instability. Being compared to Diana was an issue only in her head; a ton of women face comparisons day in and day out and she had HM's favor and enjoyed Balmoral, made that easy for HM and earned a lot more kudos for being earthy and unlike Diana, Fergie didn't have to face a lot of the abuse from Charles that Diana did. Andrew never badmouthed his wife to friends or the public.

The support I give for Fergie is that she at least TRIED.  She faced her demons (in her own way) and was brutally honest about them to the point of personal embarrassment, I agree, but she still made an attempt and that is the sign of someone maturing.

To be honest, I haven't heard anything but positive reports on her and her activities over the last year or two, which are slim and she truly loves her children and works with her husband to make life as normal as possible.  I can really see the adoration in her towards them and it shows in the young women that they are coming into their own, with confidence. 

Those two issues do not compare to Waity in any way, shape or form.

Fergie's amazing transformation: Duchess of York sheds TWO STONE on gruelling 90 day mountain bootcamp
Duchess of York, 54, shed the pounds with help of trainer Josh Salzmann
Pair stayed in £17,000 a week Verbier chalet with American TV crew
Three-month regime included strict diet, daily runs and mountain hikes



Sarah Ferguson has lost two stone after embarking on a gruelling three-month bootcamp in the Swiss Alps.
The newly-trim Duchess of York, 54, who once weighed almost 16 stone, shed the pounds with the help of her personal trainer of 20 years Josh Salzmann.
She has reportedly seen the weight fall off after sticking to a strict diet of blended foods, daily runs and mountain hikes over the past 12 weeks.


But while she has been put through her paces daily, it hasn't all been so tough.
The mother-of-two and Salzmann stayed at a luxury seven-bedroom, £17,000-a-week chalet in ski resort Verbier, reports the Mirror - the same one she stayed at last Christmas.
The upmarket chalet comes equipped with its own swimming pool and sauna.
The pair were accompanied by a TV crew filming for a documentary to be screened in America in 2014.

One dubbed the 'Duchess of Pork', Sarah, who lives at Royal Lodge in Berkshire, showed off her new slimline figure at a charity lunch in Los Angeles.
Wearing a demure black ensemble, she said she wants to use her weight loss ­experience to help raise awareness of the battle against obesity.
'I went up to the mountains, and I ran every day. That's how I got fit,' she said.

'I may have lost 30lbs, but I want to help combat global obesity.
'I want to really get into America and support young children who need to be educated about the future.'

Quote
The couple's daughters Princesses Beatrice, 25, and Eugenie, 23, spent Christmas with the Queen and the rest of the royals. They are expected to join their mother for the New Year at the luxury chalet.
'Beatrice and Eugenie always go and spend the holidays with their grandmother because I love Her Majesty so much.

Only 28 pounds in 12 weeks this sounds more like a ski vacation to me. I did one for 12 weeks in Utah a few years ago I lost 86 pounds. I was doing 5 to 7 hours of activity a day from hiking to class room time learning nutrition and cooking. It was great but since then I have gained some back. :o.

granted it is harder to lose weight when you get older but 30 pounds in 12 weeks doesn't seem impressive - she looks better but she still could stand to lose another 30.

I am with you JuneBug - that remarks was so ingratiating and in a way - rather self promoting.  Of course she could have told the truth as in "of course they spend Christmas with the Queen - that is where the money and status is not to mention we have to fight to maintain their place in the RF what with all the pressure to reduce the size of the RF nowadays".

But yes - I do like Sarah and have some empathy for her.

She did do a reality show for Oprah's tv station a few years back. She came across very liable.

She was treated "unfairly" because she did a huge amount of stupid things that even Diana didn't pull. Diana didn't entertain an Iraqi oil minister while Gulf troops were moving against Saddam and go figure, the Kuwaiti RF was enjoying refuge in Britain at the time. Diana also didn't mess around topless with a man in front of her children in France. Just those two things are reason enough to leave her with next to nothing. Andrew was a faithful loving husband and supported her even all through that.

Ugh; she's pushing sixty and she's been an ex-royal for just about thirty years. Her entire life has been a kind of reality sideshow for a very long time now.

She should just give it a rest and live a quiet life.

I'd debate the loving husband thing - suspect Andrew has his own thing going on and always has

consider the issue with the marriage was how often the  loving husband was never home and she was on her own

She is responsible for her own problems but she has always worked and tried to make her own way.  She had a rough childhood - being abandoned by one's mom is not pretty and after mom left she pretty much brought herself up.  Yes she has been foolish yes she has been indiscrete yes she has shown very poor judgement - but she also got eaten alive in the pressure cooker of Diana and the RF - I cut her a break.

I had an exceptionally uniquely rough childhood and as for her navy husband, he was a naval officer and she knew this. I had to bring myself up and since I've been there, I understand, but I don't sympathize. I don't because she had a lot more at a young age than I did. She threw it all away on some elusive principle of 'being myself' and she still hasn't figured that out at all, as far as I can see really. It's not like she's someone who had nothing; she had tax free alimony, has been living with her ex since forever, and has connected friends. If she had a brain she would have made something of herself and avoided throwing it all away like she has.

Besides, her childhood was several decades ago.

I disagree with the claim that she has always worked and tried to make her own way.  She has a compulsive spending disorder, spending whatever she 'earns' many times over.  Despite being bailed out repeatedly she always slides back into debt.  She has never held down a steady job since leaving the RF.  She always has her hand out.

Phew! Sarah may have trimmed up but boy she looks ancient and rough in the face.

Sarah's lived a rough life; I'm thirty and just bounced back from weight gain (caused by poop congested, but that's for later) and I spent my twenties living a fairly non-abusive life to my body. Hence, my body is able to handle rough stuff much better.

Look at Sarah's History:

Diet Pills/radical diets
Sexual promiscuity
Chaotic mental health
Drifter lifestyle (not really setting down real roots)
Unstable work history (anxiety from trying to get a job and income)
Financial worries (always overspending)
Endless Tanning and sun exposure
Frequent exposure to the harsh winter weather at skiing resorts

She lived rough during her twenties and thirties and since then her body hasn't been able to keep it together while she goes about taking a wrecking ball to her body. Anyone's physical health lasts only for so long until deterioration continues.

yup - KF I right and those sun and ski  loving younger royals should keep this in mind -

something I notice about the RF - Sarah included - is unlike most wealthy people - they for sure do not go for the cosmetic surgery.  Admittedly too much surgery can make oyu look grotesque - but an eye lift as an example - would freshen the face- nothing too radical.  But they all seem to fail to take advantage of that - too celeb I guess.

Her body is too badly abused to bounce back or for any cosmetic adjustments to be effective.

When I read about her addiction to diet pills and her addiction to:

Champagne
Rich Foods
Junk Food/Candy
Liquors/Cocktails

You never really read about her eating stuff that is hearty and healthy and I think she's on a real downward spiral right at this time in life. She's never really stood on her own two feet (while single before marriage she was ski bunny living off of her boyfriends) and she leeches off of Andrew and her daughters still. She has no real life of her own and it makes me irritated that she is like a human sloth, hanging from her daughters and ex-husband. Andrew really hasn't had a life outside of his ex. I've no clue why the RF doesn't just kick her out of Royal Lodge and start helping Andrew move on in his life. It's so ridiculously pathetic, after all these years.

It's been nearly twenty years since the divorce and she's still clinging as if it were yesterday that the marriage ended. Cut the woman loose and move on BRF!

She looks good !!!  :thumbsup: Go Sarah !!!  :bouncy: I like her it must have been awful not doing anything right and being put every time against the goddess of The British press Di ... the two women were doing the same things but only one got the beating while the other was worshiped God knows why ...

Thing is, that Sarah was older and more experienced in life and Andrew wasn't cheating on her with a variety of lovers. She was in fact doing the cheating while Diana only took on lovers after she realized that she wasn't going to really sustain Charles' interest. Sarah had a faithful husband who only wanted her to act like the royal she was supposed to be. Andrew was a man who had a life before Sarah and just because Andrew wasn't coddling Sarah and being a new Daddy does not mean that Andrew wasn't a good husband. Sarah also blew through mountains of money and drew up massive debts. Despite having plenty already, the hog wanted more.

Then, after the topless mess (which she pulled right in front of her daughters no less) she had the gall to act like SHE was the victim (even though she had made her husband a laughingstock and had been promiscuous with other lovers) and then foolishly thought HM would forgive her for cheating on her favorite son. Then after the divorce (several other opportunities thrown away) she decides she will exploit her connection to her ex and offers access for cash. Then after getting caught she decides to lawyer up and get a better settlement out of the RF, but it was brushed aside since she had just destroyed all her credibility.

Besides, after the divorce, she made millions from Weight Watchers and had a fabulous amount of opportunities. She repaid her overdraft and then made a fortune, but foolishly frittered it away. I'm surprised since she does have a portion of Andrew's military pension and she oddly never bought a home of her own, paid it off, and would then have a safe place for herself. I have no clue why she never did that, or get some kind of home in the US. Renting for a long time adds up considerably. I do think that if she would stop trying to push people to take care of her she would be in a better place.

There must be more about Sarah and Andrew's marriage than is out in public.

Title: Re: Sarah, Duchess of York: News and Pictures
Post by: rosielinks on February 22, 2014, 07:35:04 pm
Well, there you go.

I think she was hurt that Paddy McNally would never marry her and so jumped at the chance to marry into the BRF. She was pretty worldly wise and so his tastes did not shock her as they would other girls from her background.

This explains why PA is happy to have her around. It also accounts for the fact that he never married again and had any more children.



Title: Re: Sarah, Duchess of York: News and Pictures
Post by: Kuei Fei on February 22, 2014, 08:06:34 pm
Thing is, that Sarah was pressuring McNally even though he had stated openly he didn't want marriage and his children were a priority to him first and foremost. Sarah wouldn't listen and kept up the relentless pressure. It's no wonder he dropped her off at the palace and never looked back. She also had five boyfriends in five years, not too stable to me.

If Andrew had some kind of predilection, she was likely a gold-digger moreso than we thought before. If there were 'preferences,' then she knowingly married that and if she was upset about her marriage, she had no business running around with other men. She wasn't brought in from a convent and married forcibly to a pervert.

I think her lack of luck comes from facing reality about people and listening to them; she sounds like the type that wastes her life and time on people who openly say they aren't going to give that part of themselves that she wants. Andrew didn't want to be a 9-5 guy, he was a military man and enjoyed his work as a sailor and soldier.

She is said to have shed more than two stone on a gruelling three-month bootcamp in the Swiss Alps.

And Fergie’s dramatic weight loss was plain to see when she was in New York last week.

Wearing her hair scraped back off her face, the Duchess of York looked tired and drawn as she left a restaurant in Manhattan.

And the 54-year-old’s physique looked noticeably trimmer in a fitted blazer, which she teamed with a crisp white shirt and a patterned blue and white scarf.

Fergie, who once weighed almost 16st, revealed she had been sticking to a diet of blended foods, daily runs and mountain hikes for 12 weeks.

She said in December: ‘I went up to the mountains, and I ran every day. That’s how I got fit. I may have lost 30lb, but I want to help combat global obesity.’

THE Duchess of York’s hopes of remarrying Prince Andrew have taken a blow after he reportedly “canoodled” with a stunning model who is a former girlfriend of George Clooney.

Yesterday friends of Sarah Ferguson, 54, who divorced Andrew in 1996, said she was “a bit taken aback” by the reports.

She looked tired and drawn last week when photographed leaving a New York restaurant a few days after Andrew dined with Monika.

She has lived at Andrew’s home, Royal Lodge at Windsor, for six years but the Yorks were said to be just “best friends” until last August. Then the Sunday Express revealed Fergie had been invited with Andrew and their daughters Bea and Eugenie to stay with the Queen at Balmoral and there was speculation they might remarry.

One of Fergie’s friends said yesterday: “Sarah is a realist and knows remarriage is not on the cards while the Duke of Edinburgh is alive but she is still a bit upset by this.”

The diet drink was created for her after Sarah decided to embark on a health and fitness regime

Reclining on a fur throw in an eye-catching African print silk blouse and harem pants, the Duchess of York is clearly keen to show off her three stone weight loss.

The Queen’s former daughter-in-law has endured a life-long battle with her weight and was shocked into taking drastic action when she stepped on the scales last year only to discover she weighed almost as much as she did when pregnant with her first child, Princess Beatrice, now 25.

Sarah, 54, speaking exclusively to Hello! magazine, said: ‘I used to be so angry. I believed I was never going to lose the weight, that I had lost control. I couldn’t fit into any of my clothes. I was just drowning in eating, drowning in food.’

After hitting her heaviest weight since pregnancy she immediately headed to the upmarket Swiss ski resort of Verbier with her long-time fitness trainer, Josh Saltzmann, and embarked on a calorie-controlled weight loss programme, particularly cutting out sugar, combined with daily mountain running.

As revealed by the Daily Mail, she also developed her own range of pudding-flavoured teas, including jam roly-poly, to sip on while others tucked into tea and cakes as they returned from the slopes.

Over five months she has managed to lose three stone – and says she is determined to keep the weight off this time round.

2. Headlines hurt her feelings
3. Diana
4. Her amazing relationship with Andrew
5. Her amazing relationship with the girls
5. She is having a fresh start (again)
6. Money - lack of or business ideas

Exactly. As much as  like Sarah, am afraid that most times she is her own worst enemy. Why does she need to give these interviews knowing people will mock her. The two main reasons I can think of is 

1) Either to stay relevant  OR
2) she is hard up for cash again!

Either way, if she were my mother I would have talked some sense into her to stop all these nonsense and think of a better/ more dignified way to make money. Can't she see how Sophie Wessex is handling herself?

She was never the glamorous one. Always the one doing the chasing so she never stood a chance.

Fergie back on official duty - tours in LA with will.i.am
ONCE persona non grata, the Duchess of York has made an extraordinary comeback to accompany Prince Andrew on a royal engagement overseas
.

The former husband and wife visited Boyle Heights, the Los Angeles neighbourhood where television’s The Voice judge Will.i.am grew up, to tour his after-school tutoring college.

They met students and posed for photographs later posted on the Duke of York’s official website and Twitter feed, although the event was not listed on the Court Circular.

Aides tried to play down the engagement as “private”, although Andrew was visiting in his official capacity as chairman of the Steering Board of iDEA, the recently-launched Digital Enterprise Award which helps young people in Britain to develop their business skills.

Will.i.am is on the board and his i.am.angel Foundation runs the centre, which helps 120 underachieving students to get better grades every year
The public appearance comes less than a year after the Sunday Express exclusively reported that the Queen had accepted the Duchess back in the fold.

She invited the couple to Balmoral for the weekend last August with their daughters Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, in scenes described by household staff as “just like old times”.

I wonder if Fergie will in fact be let back in and become a royal duchess again; she would hopefully be more appreciative of her second chance and it would bring Fergie in as a player and end up likely causing a huge swell of interest. After all, another wedding, no matter how small will cause interest and if Fergie starts working more, she'll overshadow Kate and William and will change a lot of the dynamics.

Nighthawk - not suggesting she abandon her daughters - but how many scandals does she get to create?  how often do we have to watch a woman still closely associated with the RF hawking some product?  Now it's tea - weight lose TV programs.  Before that it was access to the RF - almost dragging PA well into that mess.

How often has HM paid her never ending debts?  PA also?

It would be one thing if she had struck out on her own - but she still lives in a grace and favor home with her ex husband - she is still closely associated with the royals - and now she is doing engagements with Andrew.  Every scandal she is involved in rubs of on the RF.

How many screw ups before one learns not to screw up?  She has emptied that bank account.

KF - Fergie looks like she is 70 years old - this I have sympathy for her - her fair skin - her constant sun bathing (especially with men licking her toes) and messed up face life - she has not aged well.  She still dresses and wears her hair as if she was that carefree young woman who Andrew courted.  There is no chance she would out do anyone in the RF - any wedding would likely be very low key.

I think there is considerably less sympathy for Fergie and her goings-on in Britain than there is in the U.S., for various reasons.
There is a blur between celebrity and (ex) royal in the States, and Fergie plays up to that. Her sad confessionals went down better in the U.S. market, which was more forgiving of her stuff-ups and quite admiring of her attempts to pick herself up and do better next time.
 
In Britain she is regarded as vulgar, a person who harks back to the dreadful 1990's with regard to the royal family, and her exploits then helped to injure the reputation of the Windsors at home and abroad. She's regarded with exasperation, hasn't done her daughters any good by being  constantly seen with them, and there is relief that she mostly kept her interviews and commercial enterprises on the other side of the Atlantic.

I don't understand why she isn't made to live on her own, on her own dime. She has no right to live in the home of her ex-husband and certainly, no right piggybacking on the social life of her daughters. It's been too long and Andrew has been too indulgent.


Title: Re: Sarah, Duchess of York: News and Pictures
Post by: meememe on May 18, 2014, 09:27:33 am
The reason she hasn't been made to live on her own is that she hasn't got any money so she would be on unemployment benefits and in a council flat - just the PR the BRF doesn't want - not good to have the mother of the Queen's grandchildren on unemployment or living on benefits in that way - better to be seen to be supporting her indirectly rather than have her going down to collect her unemployment benefits.

She has no skills really, is at an age when many people are being put out of work due to their age - mid-50s with no experience/qualifications = unemployable. Beatrice, with a 2.1 Bachelor's degree is struggling to be employable at 25 so it would be impossible now for Sarah to be considered for a job.


Title: Re: Sarah, Duchess of York: News and Pictures
Post by: Kuei Fei on May 18, 2014, 06:24:03 pm
Sarah put herself in that situation when she decided to squander the millions she made on a regal lifestyle she had no business trying to live. Sarah should be facing the consequences of her actions, not being taken care of like she's some little kid.

 As for Beatrice, she should have gotten a more practical education. She had no business expecting to get a royal role, just using university as a way to pass the time having fun and getting an ornamental degree. She's unemployed because she vacations all the time, not because she's unconnected. Once she found out she would be required to make her own way (one a huge trust fund), she should have gone out, gotten skills, and begun to use her connections.


Title: Re: Sarah, Duchess of York: News and Pictures
Post by: meememe on May 18, 2014, 10:56:48 pm
As someone with a History degree I find it rather nasty for anyone to suggest that it is an 'ornamental degree'. It isn't. It takes a lot of hard work and has supported me my entire life.
 
We don't know when Beatrice was told she wasn't going to be a full-time working royal - or even if that is what she is being told mind you. There has never been any official statement from BP to that effect - just ONE comment made by a 'source' in the early 90s that has taken on a life of its own - that suggestion was that Charles wanted a 'smaller royal family' and that is all that was ever made.

Like William and Harry she may have been told to spend her 20s enjoying herself before working full-time for The Firm in her 30s.

She has gone and done another course in finance since leaving university and then worked in that field for 8 - 9 months - long enough to find out if it was for her.

She is now doing another internship in another field so she is trying to find where she wants to be and trying to get further skills in a very hard employment environment in the UK. She wouldn't have gained that internship without using her contacts in all probability.

She can't win in the jobs area: if she gets a job the complaint will be 'she used her connections' but if she doesn't work 'she is lazy and sponging'.

She is trying and will find her feet no doubt in the future - and that future could still be as a working royal - she has more patronages than Kate and does more work for her charities that we know about.

IMO, while the girls were minors, Andrew had to allow Fergie to live with him.

The whole underage girl scandal was likely not his first rodeo.  Not exactly a positive for any parent wanting visitation.

I think it's likely that his perverse behaviors are part of the reason HM continues to bail Fergie out and allows her a free ride.  It's also best to keep Fergie financially dependent.  The only other viable option would be locking the woman up. 

Once HM passes I doubt Chuck will be as generous.  He will willingly throw both his brother and Fergie to the wolves.  He hasn't had much to do with his brother in any meaningful way in decades and so won't be seen as guilty by association. 

I think the entire York clan recognizes that the ship is sinking.  Which is why Bea and Eugenie appear to be focused solely on forcing Cress onto Harry. 



Title: Re: Sarah, Duchess of York: News and Pictures
Post by: cate1949 on May 19, 2014, 02:45:53 am
^ Amen sister!!  LOL - yeah Charles has no great affection for Andrew and that is obvious.  Which Andrew and Fergie know - hence their need to cerate allies in the golden circle - poor Harry!  But - Harry is not naïve - he knows what is happening in that family - he has already been approached by Andrew Bea etc to intervene on their behalf.  He is said to have refused.  So why he now gets himself involved I do not know.

Yes - take it easy on us history types!  Without history you would not know who you are!  Bea's problem is not that she was a history  major - she just has expectations that are no longer realistic .I have pointed this out before - but - Charles knows what is coming up - the RF must be trimmed.  So there will still be titled relatives and they will still have patronages and still - like most of us - do charity work.  But they are not going to be financially supported any longer. 

This isn't the first time this has happened in the RF - George V had to reduce the number of titles and Prince/Princesses.   With each generation the RF gets bigger and there is a point at which it has to be reduced.  HM supports her 3 kids (PC has his own source of support) and to a lesser extent their children.  PC when King will have to support his kids and their children.  He is not going to add more people to the dole - the children of his siblings are on their own - they are not going to be official royals.

This would not be such an issue for the York  girls if Andrew and Fergie had provided for them.  And neither girl is going to be poor - they have trust funds.

Fergie did not have to live with Andrew because of custody - she lived with him because she was broke and because she and Andrew chose that.  In the early years of the divorce they lived in separate houses - it was not until the QM died that Windsor Lodge became available and they lived together.

Andrew and Fergie's involvement in the Epstein case nauseates me.  Keep in mind the court records were sealed so as to not further embarrass the RF.  So there may be worse than we already know about that case in those records.  Epstein - a known alleged pedophile - paid off a million of Fergie's debts as a favor.  Andrew's involvement with shady characters and shady deals very often involves Fergie and her inability to live on a budget.  If I take a harsh attitude towards both of them - it is because of this.  They bring trouble to all around them.

I'm a history fanatic and am like a sponge; I just think that Beatrice should stop mooching around like Sarah and get something to support herself. Charles is right to cut them off since they have the perfect circumstances to end up making a good life for themselves. The Yorks are half the reason the monarchy is in jeopardy.

Sorry that I am a bit off topic but I could not help seeing this comment in the article that you posted.

Quote
She humbly took a seat at the opposite end of the VIP area to where Prince Harry was sitting with a starry entourage that included former Prime Minister John Major (once his legal guardian), his cousin Peter Phillips, and Seb Coe and his wife, Carole.

Why was John Major Harry's legal guardian? Surely if one parent is alive there is no requirement for a legal guardian unless this was written into Charles will. But why John Major? why not Charles Spencer, Prince Andrew, Princess Anne Prince Edward, or Diana's sisters. I find that most strange.

Noticed that he is also guardian to William so perhaps it is something to do with the financial side.


Title: Re: Sarah, Duchess of York: News and Pictures
Post by: cate1949 on May 19, 2014, 07:44:07 am
as I recall reading - Major was made their legal guardian just in case of some catastrophic event.  He would have been chosen instead of the brothers because he was pm and also - we are talking bout the succession here so you would have to imagine possibilities that might occur with others who were also in the line of succession.  I also think Major was a good friend of HM - he was later made of knight of the garter I think


Title: Re: Sarah, Duchess of York: News and Pictures
Post by: Rosella on May 19, 2014, 08:15:14 am
I can't remember whether John Major was Prince William's godfather or not. He was certainly a knight of the Garter which is one of the reasons why he was invited to the 2011 Royal wedding, as all the Knights were invited.

He was appointed the Princes' legal guardian as he could act in an independent way on the Princes' behalf in legal and administrative matters on occasions when it would be improper or awkward for Charles to do so. For instance, he acted in William and Harry's interests in certain legal manoevres to do with Diana's will (distribution of some of her property when they reached 30) for instance.

Post by: Kuei Fei on May 19, 2014, 08:28:26 am
If anything happened to Charles, while the boys were in a minority, Andrew would be made Prince Regent and would look after the boys personally. I think the Prime Minister would be in charge of their official life, which would have put Fergie in a more powerful position than Diana, interestingly.

As for Sarah, I wonder if a condition of her being allowed back in, would be that Andrew would agree to support himself and not live off of Charles once Charles becomes king; that way Sarah would be brought back in, but not supplied from the public purse. Andrew would be off of Charles' hands and certainly, it would be win-win.


Title: Re: Sarah, Duchess of York: News and Pictures
Post by: Rosella on May 19, 2014, 09:23:45 am
Andrew couldn't have been made Prince Regent  as Elizabeth II was physically and mentally able. There is only a Prince Regent situation if the monarch is completely unable to fulfil the duties expected of him/her.
 
 We don't really know who Charles would have appointed as the boys' guardian from his own family, had he died before his sons reached their majority. However, John Major was appointed after Diana's death, to look after their legal interests, and that arrangement would probably have remained.

Sarah Ferguson was spotted enjoying an evening out at celebrity hotspot Chiltern Firehouse with a glamorous group of friends last night.
The Duchess of York, 54, paired her trusty pastel pink blazer with matching nude slipper shoes with pink piping for the girls' night out.
She wore a short black dress featuring a flared drop hem with mesh strips, and carried a navy tote.

Sarah, Duchess of York hopes events prove lucrative
The Duke of York's former wife has been appointed as the director of S.Phoenix Events Limited

 With Sarah, Duchess of York already a regular face at high society soirées on both sides of the Atlantic, it is perhaps a natural step that she now hopes to carve out a career in the events industry.

Mandrake can disclose that Fergie is the director of a new company called S.Phoenix Events Limited. The business, which was set up at the end of May, is not trading yet but is expected to file accounts in February.

While the Duchess’s spokesman declines to comment on the exact nature of Fergie’s new business venture, the company is registered to an office of the accountancy firm Tax Innovations in Hampshire.

The new career move comes after the mother of Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie has struggled to bring in a regular income since her divorce from the Duke of York in 1996.

After initially earning money through several books and television appearances, the Duchess, 54, went on to co-produce the 2009 period drama The Young Victoria alongside Martin Scorsese

Yes but she also cares about her son's and granddaughters' feelings as well and so compromises - meets Sarah with her son and granddaughters when her husband isn't around.

If she didn't ever see Sarah the question could be turned around - does she care about the feelings of her son or her granddaughters at all?

She also knows that two more babies to Kate means Andrew can remarry without her consent which means that Sarah could be back in sooner rather than later or not at all of course.

It's odd that Andrew's said to be her favorite son when he comes off like a spoilt bafoon most of the time. The only positive I can say about him is that he's active in his daughter's lives and doesn't let Fergie become "homeless." This might be a venture that has her being paid to attend social events. It'll make sense because it's worked for Donna Air, and I'd even say her daughters.

I adore Sarah and it makes me very happy to see her trying to be a better person and plan to do such things.But i cant help to think that she always goes on the wrong direction.The problem as far as i see is that she wants to fix problems and goes back to a point in her life there is long time gone and have no return instead of build a new life a new Sarah.No wonder she keeps failing.She should give up on the old life the old Sarah and starts a new one.A new chapter.

I think Sarah has all opportunitys.But going this way i dont see her sucsseding at all.She should go away from limelight instead of going back there.All she always wants to do is somehow related to royal duties and marketing herself as a Duchess.But shes no longer a Duchess and probablly never will be again.She has proved many times that selling herself and her own familly and putting all in the limelight purelly to get more money doesn work for her, for them and for nothing.Honestlly.Its just dont make her image any better.There are other ways to make money and in more private and decent ways.She can have a carerr go back to study something or even try to get a job through the many friends and conexions she has.Staying out of limelight becoming independent and an example maybe not for the wolrd to see and apllaud as i believe she wants but for a few around her that really matters.Being an independent and decent person.Healthy mentally and phisically.Thats would be amazing for her and everyone around her.Not becoming famous again for sometime just to get envolved in scandals and fall again at some point.

I think she has such a huge ego and until she fix this problme she will continue to fail.She wants to be known and recognized.She still havent grown out of this phase and she needs to do it before anything else.Otheriwse she will keepmon failing coz she acts like she still in apoint of her life thats already been gone.It seems she refuses to change but wants people to believe shes trying  :bored:


I believe the Queen accepting her more into royal circles again is probablly coz Beatrice will get engaged sooner as rumours sugests.And this obviouslly means Sarah will be back on royal familly.Maybe not officially but she will be seen more and more until shes back for real.I believe probablly Beatrice demanded this and its only natural if not sensitive from the queen to accept.I dont think it has to deal at all with the Queen forgiving Sarah especailly if Sarah shows shje havent changed at all.Loosing weight and dressing better getting envolved with using the RF name and image to make Money for herself isnt the best way to get the queens forgiven in my opinion   bignono

I have to say that it is very distastefull this feeling everyone has that theyre just waiting for Prince Phillip to die so they can put her back on the familly.Honestlly.No words for this kinda of feelings!!!I think when prince Philip dies things will change and get very bad between the ones that remains.The famillys if u ask me.There will definatelly be the begginning of a war and i hope people are smart to have theyre lifes very well defined by then.Otherwise it will be a nightmare honestlly and all very publiclly if u ask me.

^good insight - she does hang on to that Duchess thing - trying to recapture her royal glory

I doubt Andy is going to marry her again - he does not say the nicest things about her in public - he said they were only together because of the kids - and he also said just a year ago that he feels like he has "three" kids - meaning Sarah as child.  Hardly the way you speak of someone you want to marry IMHO.

This may be why she is determined to be financially independent.  Frankly - the generation that is impressed by her is ageing fast - young people have no interest in her.  She better make it work this time.

Some kind of arrangement should be made to move Sarah out once and for all; she's an albatross and while I believe that she shouldn't be reduced to poverty, she should be required to move somewhere quiet, like in a small village or the countryside. Andrew hasn't moved on because he knows having his ex-wife around will only end up complicating dates and weekend fun with someone else. Andrew needs to ball up and kick her out permanently and put her in her place, as an ex-wife.

As for the rest of her ventures, this might work, but then she will likely sabotage herself. I do not think that she is someone who will end up keeping it together and I do not think she is someone who will likely refrain from acting out, yet again. She's too destructive to herself and others. As for waiting to haev Prince Philip kick the bucket, I bet anything it's because Philip is HM's backbone and Sarah will want to take advantage, during HM's mourning and take advantage of HM's passivity.

On the other hand, Andrew has to want to marry her, something I don't think he does.

I've always had a soft spot for Sarah, so I hope that she has some marketable plans that will make her financially independent, and I hope that Andrew INSISTS that a financial advisor be in charge of her money from her on so that she will not bankrupt again.  

I applaud the Yorks for keeping a close family unit, but I think it has been too bad that Andrew has not had a duchess all these years -- both for himself personally and as a royal.   Perhaps he was just consumed with trying to carve out a royal position for his daughters . . .

You know, Sarah remains as positive as she does because she always gets picked up by the RF and rescued from consequences. This is so wrong that she's been allowed to live like this, piggybacking on her daughter's lives and preventing Andrew from moving on and forming new healthy relationships. With friends and women. It's not like he should be forced to remarry, but thing is, he should be out dating and enjoying life. He should have been out and doing that years ago after the divorce.

You put yourself in stupid places. Yes I think you know it's true
Situations where it's easy to look down on you
Think you like to be the victim. Think you like to be in pain.
I think you make yourself the victim almost every single day

You do what you do. You say what you say.
You try to be everything to everyone.
You know all the right people. You play all the right games.
You always try to be. Everything to everyone.

Yeah you do it again. You always do it again.

You say they taught you how to read and write. Yeah they taught you how to count.
I say they taught you how to buy and sell your own body by the pound.
I think you like to be their simple toy. I think you love to play the clown.
I think you are blind to the fact that the hand you hold is the hand that holds you down.

[Chorus]

Spin around and fall down. Do it again.
You stumble and you fall. Yeah why won't you ever learn?
Spin around and fall down. Do it again.
Yeah you stumble and you fall. I wonder if you will ever learn.

Yeah why won't you ever learn?

Come on now do that stupid dance for me.


Ooh yeah you do what they tell you to do. You say what they say.
You try to be everything to everyone.
Yeah you jump through the big hoop. You play all the right games.
You try to be everything to everyone.

Fergie goes hell for leather! The Duchess of York shows off her slender shape in a racy figure-hugging dress


Sashaying out of the Dorchester Hotel in London last night, the Duchess of York made sure all eyes were on her - and her figure-hugging black leather dress.

Cinched in at the waist and paired with black heels, it showed off her newly slimline figure to maximum effect.

The Duchess was at the hotel's China Tang restaurant to celebrate the birthday of old friend Sir David Tang, who joined her as she left the building alongside other guests.

Sarah Ferguson lost 42 lbs: ‘I used to be so angry, I was drowning in eating’

Quote
Duchess of York Sarah Ferguson lost 3 stone, which is approximately 42 lbs by our yank scale, from October, 2013 to March, 2014. Many outlets are reporting this like she recently lost the weight, but that’s not the case. This story reminds me of Renee Zellweger’s new look in that it took months for the US media to notice. Sarah was on the cover of Hello! Magazine showing off her weight loss in March. It’s just that she has been hitting more red carpets recently and her new figure is turning heads. She looks like she’s lost even more weight recently. In her profile in Hello! Magazine earlier this year, Sarah said that she lost the weight by sequestering herself in Switzerland, giving up sugar and taking four hour walks.

Quote
Later in the interview, the Hello! journalist mentions Sarah’s trainer, one of two mentioned in the article. (She also has a local pilates instructor visit her at home.) She gets a bit defensive and says “To be honest with you, I did it by walking – to the mountains and up and down the stairs, every day. Josh didn’t do it, I did.” She also said that he walked with her and talked to her and that “he knew what I had to do was mentally break down the barrier.”

She looks incredible and it’s obvious she put in the hard work, but it really strikes me that she has no clue that wealth and privilege gave her the incredible opportunity to take weeks off in a Swiss chalet, hire a trainer to be with her the whole time, and spend 4 hours a day in reflective walks in the mountains. That’s not something the average working person can do to say the least. Good for her for getting healthy and losing weight, but I would have liked to have heard more self awareness in this interview.

Oh and she was asked about the rumors that she’s on-again with Prince Andrew (whom she divorced in 1996), but she remained vague and diplomatic. She said “Prince Andrew and I have two of the most outstanding girls, we communicate better than ever and we show great respect and loyalty to each other…. I think that we are in the right place right now.” The last we heard they were still going on vacations together.

http://www.celebitchy.com/402093/sarah_ferguson_lost_42_lbs_i_used_to_be_so_angry_i_was_drowning_in_eating/

I do think Sarah has anger issues, real serious ones that she's not addressing at all.

I do bet that Sarah has problems having Diana being brought up all the time and I do think she has a lot of frustration she hasn't dealt with or come to terms to. She's seeing Diana's boys live a secure future while her own daughters, who are princesses of York, face a future where they will be cut out of the royal pocketbook. She keeps up this facade of high spirits, but under all that is something fierce that she hasn't at all resolved. She should commit herself and sort herself out. I would.

Her slender new figure is the envy of many after she lost four stone on a strict diet.

But the Duchess of York may have been trying a little too hard to show it off yesterday – when she donned this daring ‘sexy Santa’ costume for a party.

Sarah Ferguson, 55, was spotted showing off her slim-line legs in the racy outfit as she celebrated Christmas with friends and family.

FERGIEVISION: A duchess has to earn a crust. But is this US infomercial flogging a 'Fusion Xcelerator food emulsifier' her most extraordinary pursuit yet?
Quote
...And does it explain her VERY desirable new life in Belgravia?
The Duchess of York is so confident that her new US ventures will be successful that friends say she is planning to move out of Royal Lodge, the Windsor home she still shares Prince Andrew, 19 years after their divorce – although this has been officially denied.
The Mail on Sunday has learnt that Fergie is renting an apartment from a friend in upmarket Eaton Square in Belgravia, where Charles Saatchi and Nigella Lawson once lived – and where rents can reach up to £10,000 a week. However, a source said the Duchess is paying a ‘peppercorn amount’.
‘She is using the Eaton Square place as her London base,’ said one friend. ‘She intends to spend much of this year splitting her time between London and the US while she launches her businesses and if things take off she may consider getting somewhere more permanent.’

Follow us: @MailOnline on Twitter | DailyMail on Facebook

The market's saturated with gimicks endorsed by celebrities that I don't expect her venture to take off. Besides, now that Andrew's embroiled in the sex mess, she's further tainted by association with him, imo. I think she's a failure before she even begins.
She's mooching off a rich friend/associate by renting a fancy flat for nothing.

it might be a lot healthier for all concerned if she did move out of Windsor Lodge get her own independent life especially since the girls are definitely past the need for Mommy all the time stage.

But yes Andy's problems and the reminder of just how disreputable she and Andy have been in the past may throw a damper on her plans - that would be too bad but just goes to show she should have separated herself years ago - had her own identity.

Thing is, once she lost her HRH, she had no business living on royal grounds.

I really do believe that she never should have been coddled or covered for. If she ended up on welfare, so be it, it would be a good lesson for her daughters. She's been an albatross for her daughters and she has had no business inserting herself into their royal lives. She has been taking full advantage of both of them.

Any bets she knew about Andrew's activities, using it as leverage to get what she wanted out of him?

Could be the case. I remember reading that he keeps her close because she knows where the bodies are buried. She alegidly renting a flat in Eaton Square in Belgravia for peanuts, so she might be distancing herself from Andrew. Anyway, she can't form her own identy and make money because she's marketing herself as a royal, so I maintain that she's finished before she even starts her new venture. She might have to start talking in paid interviews that exposes the royal's secrets to make her living.

I wonder how much of the dirt is a product of Sara's many screw ups?  The claim is made in the vanity fair article that Andrew's friendship with Epstein was in part due to needing Epstein's help to bail Sara out.


Or how about when Sara offered to sell access to Andrew to that undercover reporter - talk about sinking low.  read the transcript of what she offered in that situation - really low.

Sara may know a lot about Andrew's sexual proclivities - but she herself has dug plenty of her own dirt up.

Cash-strapped Fergie took £15,000 from alleged paedophile billionaire at centre of claims Prince Andrew slept with under-age 'sex slave'

Sarah Ferguson was once given £15,000 from alleged paedophile billionaire Jeffrey Epstein to pay off her debts.

The deal was struck in December 2010 after months of negotiations with the disgraced tycoon who insisted on helping with her financial troubles.

It came within days of the Duke of York flying out to visit Epstein in New York, fuelling speculation he had smoothed the path for his ex-wife to take the money just 18 months after he was released from jail for soliciting prostitution from under-age girls.

The Duchess of York later claimed her judgment had been 'clouded' by her desperation to get out of her £5million debt and vowed to repay the money.

But when asked today whether she had paid back the cash, her spokesman told MailOnline: 'No comment'.

Fergie's relationship with Epstein has been thrown into the spotlight once again amid the furore over claims Prince Andrew had sex with an under-age girl 'procured' by the disgraced tycoon - an allegation the prince 'emphatically denies'.

This is another reason I understand why royal wives, ex-wives, should be ordered to stand on their own feet and accept or expect nothing from the royal family.

Oh man; if it turns out that this is how it happened, Fergie will have facilitated the worst mess since her toe sucking scandal. Worse actually. I mean, she literally got Andrew introduced, then Andrew went from there (his choice to be blunt), but this is the worst thing she's ever done. She exploited her husband and it would explain why she would defend this disgusting behavior. If Andrew talked and admitted that Fergie had introduced him and made money, it would show she's used Andrew before.

And it isn't as if Maxwell was so respectable - she had fled to the US to escape the shame of her father stealing hundreds of millions from the Mirror's pension fund. 

It had best occur to Fergie that her plans for financial independence are done if she is too closely associated with Andy now.  Her royal cache looks a lot less cachey  with the claims made re: Andrew.  No one will want her as their spokesperson.

All the reaction to Fergie's defense of Andy in the US has been negative - she is for sure not so appreciated.

Fergie might have introduced randy andy to these people, but he is his own person, he did not have to commit under age sex with these girls, nobody held a gun to his head.  He was old enough to know better, and his daughters were growing up, maybe not that much younger than these girls, gross indecency in my opinion.  Yes, the introductions came from Fergie, but no, randy andy did not have to go the whole hog along the under age sex route.  Nobody forced him, his own decision and he should be held responsible for it, not Fergie or anyone else.  He is like the rest of his family, not good at taking responsibility, always the fault of someone else.

This is the worst though; a alleged pedophile and Sarah had to have known. Andrew made his choices, but this was Sarah initiating it. This is yet ANOTHER reason she never should have been allowed to live on at Royal Lodge after the divorce. She's too easily corrupted and just plain too low. No wonder Diana cut her out.

I was reading a Fergie biography the other day. It appears that quite early in his daughter's marriage Major Ferguson found himself pressed for cash. So, unknown to his daughter (according to the author) he would contact people he would meet socially and upon them paying anything from £1,000 to £5,000 he would invite them to visit his home to meet his daughter and occasionally Andrew.

He had a copy of Fergie's events diary and would hold a dinner or cocktail party on days/evenings when she was free, in order that these guests could meet her.This went on for  a couple of years until courtiers found out and finally the Queen was told. With that sort of thing going on in her family background no wonder Fergie doesn't really care where money comes from so long as she gets some.

Sarah did not grow up royal - she worked .  She went to secretarial school.  She worked after she and Andy got married - made more money than him.  Obviously when you read what her father did she did not have a good upbringing re: ethics of any sort.

And that is the problem with these two - moral compass not working.  Despite constant "change your ways" feedback - compass still not working.  Both Sarah and Andy had enough money to live comfortable upper middle class lives - but that was not enough for them.  So they take the freebies and Sarah gets into debt and then Andrew feels he has to help her pay it off so he starts scrounging around too.  A taste for luxury neither can afford.

Sarah's best man in the world remark was just plan idiotic.  Hey dopey - how about "I regret that my problems with money resulted in my husband having to arrange for loans from Epstein"????  And apparently - she did not pay him back as she claimed she would when all this surfaced in 2010.  Way to go Sarah.

PP has been right all along - this woman needs to be banned.

Post by: Kuei Fei on January 07, 2015, 04:29:15 am
Thing is, during her time as a single young woman she wasn't working on a steady, stable basis, she was working haphazardly/sporadically while traveling the world on a shoestring budget and during her engagement she gave Andrew an expensive gift, but was overdrawn at the bank at the time. So even then she was unstable. During her time as a single young woman she was a ski groupie who essentially hung around loaded men and was infatuated with Paddy McNally and he didn't want to marry her. So she was always someone who never did learn to take either a more modest approach to expectations and never really worked.

Quote
Sarah did not grow up royal - she worked .  She went to secretarial school.


It's interesting to note that at the time, upper class ladies were trained in practical things like typing, knew an office trade, and then ended up working for a time in expensive places that paid well and enabled them to buy nice stuff.

Quote
She worked after she and Andy got married - made more money than him.  Obviously when you read what her father did she did not have a good upbringing re: ethics of any sort.

Even though she wasn't supposed to. She could have lived a comfortable life as a royal duchess, since her husband's income was comfortable, she never wanted for anything. Yet, she wanted a life more like Diana's, which was more exotic and luxurious. Fergie wore nice jewels, nice gowns (horrendously designed), but oddly it never worked out that way, Fergie wanted more and more and more. It really did lead to her downfall in the end. As for her father, her father was adulterous and he didn't raise her in any really attached way. Tina Brown called her upbringing "Roald Dahl, compared to Diana's "A Little Princess" upbringing."

Quote
And that is the problem with these two - moral compass not working.  Despite constant "change your ways" feedback - compass still not working.  Both Sarah and Andy had enough money to live comfortable upper middle class lives - but that was not enough for them.  So they take the freebies and Sarah gets into debt and then Andrew feels he has to help her pay it off so he starts scrounging around too.  A taste for luxury neither can afford.

Neither learned that their view of themselves had to change. I mean, just because Andrew was born a prince didn't mean that he was living shabbily. He lived in palaces, visited family castles, could have easily made his rooms comfortable and elegant, but chose not to take responsibility for his tastes, same with Fergie. Fergie has less reason to be so snotty about her interest in living luxuriously since after all she's not a born royal, she's not even titled. Well connected, but not titled. She has no business burdening people with her vaunted 'expectations' with life in general. I've long hated how she mooches off of even her own daughters.

if she said what you think she should say, that would mean taking responsibility for her actions, something Sarah never does. As for the remark itself, it was so immature. Worst thing in the world to say about a man who was hanging around a alleged pedophile and getting massages from CHILDREN! Compelte and utter idiot.

Quote

Why doesn't HM just strip Fergie of her courtesy title, kick Fergie out of the royal estates, and then end up pushing her off of the Yorkie's backs once and for all? This idea of an ex-royal retaining a title and nominal standing should end and Fergie has had enough out of the royal family. This should be the last straw.

Why are Fergie and Andrew signing a mortgage together for that large ski chalet in Verbier that they stay at regularly? According to the Daily Fail it costs £13 million. You'd think they would have other things on their minds, besides which isn't Fergie supposed to be broke?

^yeah pretty amazing - Fergie has signed a bunch of deals to market stuff as a spokesperson - so you see why she gets into financial trouble - as soon as she has the money - she spends it !!

I can see the logic of wanting to have a property to leave to their girls since neither owns anything but if you really wanted a nest egg for your daughters - is a ski chalet in Verbier really the best bet?  How about a stock portfolio or just plain old savings?


Maybe they plan to rent it out when they are not using it - that would make sense

I love it when she starts touting her integrity - and how the American people know how much integrity she has - yup we do - and it is zero.

She really comes off incredibly dumb in this interview among other things.

And of course - if Andy goes down her association with him will damage her ability to keep on getting those endorsements so naturally she has to defend him.  He could take her down.

It was painful to watch - she came off as not terribly bright. insincere and also as if she did have something to hide.  Desperate.

Imperial College distances itself from Duchess of York after she uses its name to promote her soup diet on US TV show

Prince Andrew's ex-wife claims to have lost 4st thanks to a £65 blender which turns fruit and vegetables into smoothies and soup.
In an interview promoting the product on morning TV, she said that she had been motivated to help beat obesity by her work with Imperial College London, one of the world's most prestigious scientific institutions.

Sort of sums it up

'Andrew was said to be in on the ‘access for cash deal’ that she was crucified for in the press, she took all the blame to protect the Queens favourite , hence the Queen’s soft spot for her. Phillip on the other hand couldn’t care tuppence about Andrew or his ex wife , I’m not sure whether she is just making sure her nest remains feathered or is really totally delusional about Andrews nasty habits, I think probably the former.'

'It is becoming more apparent they have some kind of co-dependency, and ‘united in sleaze’ may be spot on. She doth deflect a bit too much.'

'Something is humongously questionable.'

'She has an air of desperation about her… and it seems to be the same size as his air of arrogance. They should remarry and be done with it.'

I think Fergie and Andrew are well matched in their co-dependent relationship.

PA has a lot to hide, and IMHO always did, and Fergie is happy to hide it away providing she gets some kickback. In this case it is not necessarlity money, but reflected glory/fame that the BRF provides. And I think that is why HM has not clamped down on her and allowed her continue being on US TV chatting about the BRF like she is still a fully paid up member. No wonder PP got rid off her.

And I have lost all respect for HM now ( I was a HUGE supporter of her before) as she allows all the dirt to be hidden away to protect her "favourite" son. All she has done is enabled PA and his behaviour to continue, to the long term detriment of the BRF, and relegated PP to being "a bl***y amoeba" he always said he was.

She has done the Monarchy no favours at all with her behaviour. This may have worked  before the internet, but with so many having access to information the BRF would rather we didn't have, that is no longer the case.

And this is IMHO only.

As London Fashion Week kicks off in the UK tomorrow, models will be stalking the catwalks with unsmiling faces and serious expressions.

Not so, Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York, who made sure to grin, grimace and mug her way down the runway for Naomi Campbell's Fashion For Relief show at Somerset House on Thursday night.

Wearing a long black dress with her hair falling loose around her shoulders, Sarah, 55, gave something of a performance, spreading her arms wide as she joined a range of celebrities to raise money for the war against Ebola.

there's no lesson learned in this letter. all i read is how important she think she is with: people asking her  ??? and the need in a letter give the details of what she did. sounds accusatory. if you write a letter to your mom and 80% of the letter are: this is what you did - there is sooo much blame underneath the 'i forgive you'. also - people who 'forgive' are arrogant. they say that to show how superior they are in comparison to the other person. besides - who is she to forgive. it's God's business to forgive or not forgive. not hers. if she was really mature she would have understood her mother's choices and their impact on her life with compassion. there's nothing to forgive. things had to happen exactly as they did. if she can't learn from that - then she's a 55 years old child and that's what is sad about her 'letter'

I'm so tired at hearing how royals have had it rough; Sarah was working for a lot of high level companies when she was a young adult, shopping at major labels and traveling all the time. In no way did Sarah have it rough and as for men, she brought it on herself. They diddled her and didn't commit mainly since she had a complete lack of respect for herself and men can often sense a troublemaker, which is what Sarah has been since she married Andrew.

Despite it all, Diana still had more than enough money and had more than enough chances in life. A title, connected to the BRF, and much else besides, there comes a point when you have to realize in some ways, you have it great in your life. Being a kid from a divorced mess of a family life is not a lease to mess up your own marriage, your own life, and piggyback on your kids. Diana had it GREAT in life too, but she did fail in several areas to make her life work for her.

Now set to be released from prison, which has infuriated Cressman family
Family described her getting parole as a 'devastating blow to all of us'

Is Fergie's killer aide plotting to spill her racy royal secrets? A Saudi prince's indecent proposal. Philip's 'fling' with a renowned novelist... Will Jane Andrews reveal all?

    Jane Andrews worked for The Duchess of York for nearly eight years
    Fergie's former confidante has served 14 years for killing her boyfriend
    Now 48, it is feared she may be tempted to write her long-awaited memoirs
    Could reveal Duchess's secrets which have long evaded the public gaze

She does that doesn´t she.  Slims right down, stays there for a short while and then up the weight goes again.  She appears to have been a yo-yo dieter all her life, being slim obviously does not come easy to her and she keeps sliding off the diet.  Used to be Weight Watchers face for the US didn´t she?  I think they sidelined her when she went chunky again.  Seems such a waste of effort to lose all that weight and let it slide back on again, but I suppose the old will power slips, human nature at the end of the day if being slim is not natural for you.  My mum was like that, up and down with her weight, she was a comfort eater, maybe Fergie is the same.

‘No longer am I the Duchess of Pork’: Sarah Ferguson appears on shopping channel QVC to promote $60 juicer she credits for helping her shift 55lbs

    The Duchess of York joined presenters on the US shopping channel
    Revealed she had finally be able to overcome cruel jibes about weight
    Credited American people for helping her regain her confidence


Quote
She is famous for her yo-yo dieting and was once branded the ‘Duchess of Pork’, but Sarah Ferguson has said she has finally put her days of being overweight behind her.

The ex-wife of Prince Andrew, who revealed her 3 stone 9lb (55lb) weightloss earlier this year, made an appearance on US shopping channel QVC promoting the healthy juicer she credits with helping her shedding the pounds.

The 55-year-old mother-of-two, who this month revealed she has finally moved out of her ex-husband’s mansion to set up home in a £13m Swiss chalet, said she made her own juices with the gadget, which is currently on sale at $59.97 (£38.39).

Sarah Ferguson uses royal links to flog jam and biscuits on day 

She vowed never to let her commercial activities embarrass her former mother-in-law, the Queen.

But her latest money-making scheme will inevitably incur Her Majesty’s displeasure.

On the day the Queen became the longest-reigning British monarch, the Duchess of York was shamelessly plugging her new deal with a Norwegian ferry firm which utilises her childhood nickname — Fergie’s Flying Culinary Circus.

Prince Andrew’s ex-wife has linked up with the company Color Line to bring out an ‘Afternoon Tea’ range of teas, jams, biscuits, cakes, plates, forks, sweets and candles.

^^ Now we know why Sarah migrated to the chalet in Switzerland with such publicity. She's in full commercial mode. Apparently she has a line called 'Duchess's Choices' in which she promotes all kinds of so-called quality products. This is probably aligned to the ferry trip and the new enterprise. I just wish she'd disappear!


Title: Re: Sarah, Duchess of York: News and Pictures
Post by: meememe on September 12, 2015, 04:17:36 am
She can't disappear as she has to earn a living and the only skill she has is her name. She didn't really do much of a job before marrying and since the divorce this is what she has done - promoted goods etc - sometimes more successfully than others.

She could, of course, claim that she can't earn a living due to people insisting she not do this sort of activity and thus become eligible for unemployment benefits and a council house (something that really would embarrass the Queen - to have the mother of her grandchildren living on benefits (and I am talking real benefits not the Sovereign Grant which is given to The Queen for a specific purpose or the incomes from the Duchies which are no different to the incomes of other land owners etc in the UK).

I remember the condemnation that arose when it was reported that Princess Alexandra's daughter was receiving such assistance and Charles stepped in to help her. Marina was, of course, an actual member of the royal family but no where near as high profile as Andrew and his daughters.


Title: Re: Sarah, Duchess of York: News and Pictures
Post by: Rosella on September 12, 2015, 06:24:07 am
^^Of course I'm not inferring that Fergie should end up in a council house or claiming benefits. That would be ridiculous.

However, she did go this commercial route before, with Weight Watchers and other enterprises and made a fortune from them, it was reported. Then there were stories of Fergie borrowing from her daughters' Trust Funds and from friends several years later.

If Sarah has lost the huge sums she has earned, either from financial incompetence or extravagant living, that's hardly the fault of the long-suffering public, IMO. I believe that if she had behaved responsibly, addressed her financial issues and successfully invested the large sums of money she has undoubtedly earned in the last decade and a half, there would be no need for her to go around flogging juices and jams. After all, I don't think there is a huge section of the public in Britain or the U.S. that is begging to see Fergie in the public arena.

Title: Re: Sarah, Duchess of York: News and Pictures
Post by: meememe on September 12, 2015, 09:21:57 am
She didn't receive all that much in the divorce though and was several million pounds in debt at the time.

A million pounds was put into each of the girls' trust funds, she received half a million pounds for a house which as never been bought and another half a million for herself and an ongoing annuity as part of Andrew's pension (standard when divorcing someone in the military).

She couldn't claim a husband with a multi-million pound income as Andrew's only income was his navy pay.

That is why she needed to work with companies like WW immediately - to pay off her debts and start earning some money to support herself as she didn't have the money to set herself up for life.

Fergie showcases her trim new figure as she

Resplendent in a flattering midnight blue ensemble, Sarah Ferguson showed her support for the Silent No More Gynaecological Cancer Fund and The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity's campaign at a ladies' lunch.

The Duchess of York, who showcased a trim new figure for the occasion, joined socialites and IT girls at the annual ladies' lunch in support of the charity campaign held at Fortnum & Mason last week.

Sporting a healthy glow from her recent jaunt to France, the 55-year-old was in high spirits as she lent her support to the charity campaign.

And that colour does not suit her at all. Some people can wear black. Others put on something black and it overwhelms them.

For Fergie, the black dress wears her and is too stark for her colouring. And she dresses too young for her age too, which is always unflattering on an older woman, IMO anyway.

^ Too fat for the frock she is wearing, does her no favours and shows ever last bulge.  She never did have any dreass sense when you look back over the years at the awful outfits she has worn, nothing appears to have changed since then.  If she wants to be a size 10 or 12 again then some serious work needs to be done by her.  For her size, shape and age a frock fitting like a tight body stocking is not the way to go.  Or maybe she thinks we want to see her bulges  Even her arms are heavy. Good luck to her wearing the frock, however IMO it does her no favours at all.  I am a size 10 and no way would I wear a frock like a second skin at her age.

So, Camilla is bringing Sarah back into the family, eh?  Frankly, I would like it if Sarah and Andrew reconciled and she became a working royal again.   It would be interesting in an otherwise dull family.

Meanwhile, Sarah is applying for Swiss residency.  I have read for years about how much she loves the mountains and Switzerland, so this is probably a very good move for her.  I wonder if the purchase of the villa is in anticipation of the changes coming when the Queen dies and Andrew wants to make sure he has a place to call his own.

I don't think Fergie was ever a working royal, she would only be interested on something if it benefited her or she could profit. She hasn't been a good influence on Andrew and neither has he been good for her.

Swiss residency for tax purposes?

Sarah worked like any other royal in-law.  She was enormously popular with the Family and the public in the beginning.  The Queen adored her.  She really was the queen's favorite.

Andrew has already paid for a 75 year lease on Royal Lodge at Windsor. No more money needs to be spent and he can only bequeath the lease to either Beatrice, Eugenie or Sarah. That means it remains with the York's until 2080 when the lease expires and the Lodge returns to the Crown Estates.

Sarah, Duchess of York is left 'devastated' after being ditched by her toyboy lover Manuel Fernandez after two years together


The Duchess of  York is said to be 'devastated' after being dumped by her partner Manuel Fernandez.

Sarah Ferguson, 56, was reported to have been dating the half-Irish half-Spanish internet entrepreneur since being introduced by a mutual friend in early 2014 and, despite the eight-year age gap, insiders say she was 'besotted' with him.

They made several public appearances together at a string of high-profile events and, last September, the pair attended Sir Bob Geldof's wedding in the South of France.

The last time The Duchess of York Sarah Ferguson visited Australia 13 years ago, it was in her capacity as a high-profile Weight Watchers ambassador.

But her latest trip Down Under will be a more business-focused affair, as she is scheduled to speak at the Macquarie Graduate School of Management, The Daily Telegraph has revealed.

The globetrotting ex-wife of Prince Andrew, Duke of York, 56, is set to arrive in Sydney on Tuesday - shortly after she was spotted attending a charity auction in Hollywood, California.

Double booked’ Fergie chooses her bride: Prince Andrew’s ex attends society wedding of model in London with her daughters after turning down clashing invitation

Wedding season is here, and this weekend it kicked off in earnest, with not one but two high-society nuptials – which brought a painful dilemma for Fergie.
The Duchess of York and Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie had been invited to entrepreneur Ali Spencer-Churchill’s Suffolk wedding, but declined in order to attend the London nuptials of model Petra Palumbo and Lord Lovat.
The trio happily posed for pictures as they arrived at yesterday’s ceremony shortly before the arrival of the 26-year-old bride.
Petra and her new husband later headed to their reception at the spectacular roof garden of the City’s No 1 Poultry building, which is owned by Petra’s father, Lord Palumbo.
Although Ali and new wife, It girl Scarlett Strutt, were no doubt disappointed that Fergie was unable to attend, their guest list included a host of other celebrities and society figures, including Guy Ritchie and Lord Freddie Windsor, who arrived with Prince Harry’s ex girlfriend, Florence Brudenell-Bruce.

I find it interesting how after her divorce, Fergie never had any lovers who were connected, powerful, or even wealthy. Yes, this entrepreneur is a man of means, but Diana was courted by men with megabucks and power and she could have had almost any man she wanted. Dodi doted on her, buying her endless new things and feting her as much as he could on his yacht and Dr. Hasnat Khan was a skilled surgeon. Diana in so many ways was deluged with opportunities and yet Fergie, she never had the same. She apparently didn't get squired around clubs and restaurants and other places by men of substance and didn't get endless gifts from wealthy heirs and sons of magnates. I don't believe Fergie ever had marriage proposals from high up men and really, when you think about it, I believe that as the mother of two high ranking princesses, she would have been doing better.

Post by: Kuei Fei on May 20, 2016, 06:49:41 am
I do think Fergie has a ton of unresolved hostility and I believe she is someone who has an undercurrent of hatred. Showed she still held a HUGE grudge over how she was left with nearly nothing to live off of and she had to see Diana get a huge chunk of change along with housing and various other immense benefits. Diana was even offered royal protection and her offices were in St. James and Diana had a budget for that as well.

Meanwhile, Fergie was forced off to rent office space in a less than prestigious area and I believe lost her royal bodyguards. Thrown off palace grounds, lost her HRH, a punching bag for the press all the more and has made money, but can't seem to keep it together. It always comes apart. While Diana was being courted by the press leadership and spending time being feted by so many, Fergie was cast into the social shadows.

I do believe that Fergie has never forgotten this and basically it's simmered, boiling inside and eating away at her peace of mind. After she got caught selling access, one of her secondary reactions was to go to a lawyer so she could renegotiate her former divorce settlement. I don't believe she has ever been able to fully register and accept that for one reason, fate perhaps, she'll always be second ranked and treated less generously.

Just think about it for a minute. She grew up on a struggling farm and had to deal with being pudgy her whole life, being ignored by boys as a wife type, and ran with the ski set and was a hostess for a wealthy Paddy McNally, but ended up being used as a beck and call girl. Then while running with the ski set, she's the one who doesn't have designer clothes or nice jewels or a large trust fund to reach into. Or really many nice things.

So she ends up on the arm of the Duke of York and marries in, perhaps thinking that so much will change, but it doesn't. Then she has to deal with Diana, who has Duchy money to buy the best, is swamped with jewels, and is lauded as the Second Coming of fashion and glamor. Then as a wife of a royal duke she is expected to project a certain image and wants to lead a certain way of life, but since she can't, she is still restricted.

Then she goes around living life as she did before, only on an elevated scale, which only gets her into trouble. Then she flaunts her new goodies, kind of an 'F-You' to people who used to regard her with indifference or patronizing indulgence and treated her with 'kindness.' Instead, she only earns contempt from the public, an ecstatic press covers her messes and mistakes, while incurring the frustration of HM and the courtiers.

I wonder how on earth the BRF didn't see the trouble Fergie would bring coming.

By all accounts, she was:
*Working in PR before deciding to drop it to go around the world on whim
*Hanging out with the fast set at chalets in Switzerland and worked as a nanny/cleaner to afford her way
*Had an overdraft at her bank and no real money of her own that would sustain her personally
*Basically cohabited the entire time with a man who was clear about not wanting to get married
*Had a photo of her in a bathtub with her legs dangling over the edge while she was covered only by bubbles
*No real stable work history that indicated she would stay on track
*No real sustaining hobbies of her own that would enable her to occupy herself constructively while Andrew was away
*Badmouthed Andrew publicly during the engagement about his vocabulary

The red flags were there in abundance, but they were ignored in favor of a fairy-tale.

Pictured snoozing on the London Underground the other day, the Duchess of York nevertheless remains as sharp as a tack when it comes to spying money-making opportunities.

I can disclose Fergie has signed up to a corporate speakers’ agency in Canada, where her services are being offered for more than 20,000 Canadian dollars (£10,600) a speech.

By happy coincidence, the popular Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are expected to visit Canada later this year so Prince William’s auntie would be perfectly placed to cash in on renewed interest in all things royal.

'I will take Rupert Murdoch's paper for millions': Debt-ridden Fergie to sue over Prince Andrew cash for access 'sting' in which she was filmed receiving £27,000

The Duchess of York is set to launch an extraordinary multi-million-pound legal battle against the former owners of the News of the World – six years after the newspaper published footage of her apparently offering access to Prince Andrew for cash.
The sting – filmed and published in 2010 – appeared to show the former Royal accepting a £27,000 cash deposit from an undercover reporter as part of a £500,000 deal to be introduced to the Prince, then a UK trade envoy.
The Mail on Sunday understands the Duchess plans to bring a legal case against Rupert Murdoch’s News Group, seeking compensation for years of lost earnings, and claiming the story damaged her credibility and earning power.

Shamed Fergie is seeking bigger divorce payout from Andrew
By Andrew Pierce

The Duchess of York has held secret talks with Princess Diana's lawyers about renegotiating her 'paltry' divorce settlement with Prince Andrew.

Sarah Ferguson consulted Anthony Julius at Mishcon de Reya, who famously negotiated a £17million pay off for Princess Diana when she divorced Prince Charles.

The figure is in stark contrast to the £15,000 a year which the duchess receives from Prince Andrew after their marriage ended after ten years in 1996.

^^ What Fergie gets only 15,000 a year? Is that all? Can't believe that's all!

Fergie didn't have any leverage; she didn't come from an illustrious family that would enable her to negotiate from a position of power and then of course, her scandals and overspending and then the toe-sucking mess that she got herself into. Her daughters are princesses of the Blood, but they aren't the first ranking heirs, so no real leverage there as well and I don't believe that she could state any kind of terms.

Yet.

She ended up engaging in commercial activities and made millions off of it while Diana was banned from doing the same.

Sarah, unlike Diana, married a poor prince who personally, at the time, had a very small fortune in real terms. He did't have an income from something like the Duchy of Cornwall that Diana was able to use as leverage against Charles. As a result Sarah was only able to get 50% of Andrew's the income and subsequent naval pension - the 15,000 pounds per year.

She also received 500,000 pounds to use to buy a home, which has never been bought. What has happened to that money I don't know but suspect that it is still in a trust for the girls. She also arranged that 1 million pounds be put into trust funds for the girls and a payout of 500,000 for her personally. A total therefore of 3 million with the ongoing half of Andrew's pension for life. Andrew also agreed to pay all the expenses for the girls' education (as did Charles for the boys').

Diana's leverage was being William's mother and nothing else. Her settlement set the standard for the ex-spouses of future monarchs who are also the parent's of a future monarch as well while Sarah's settlement has set the standard for the younger children's divorced spouses.

Sarah also said at the time that she didn't want a huge payout as she wanted to be able to work and undertake commercial deals - which she has done successfully at times and not so successfully at other times. Diana didn't have any interest in the commercial world as no experience in anything other than doing some charity work having never done anything else.

As for stripping Sarah of her right to use 'of York' - it would take legislation to deny all wives of the right to continue to use their married styles/titles on divorce and not LPs as she has the same rights as every other divorced wife - to continue to use that styling as part of who she is.

In some cases, Diana was referred to as Diana Windsor, Windsor being the dynastic surname and I think it would fit just fine for Fergie. An LP in this case could be explained as being created specifically for Fergie and not applicable to other wives not married to other men.


Title: Re: Sarah, Duchess of York: News and Pictures
Post by: meememe on July 13, 2016, 09:54:52 pm
Diana was never Diana Windsor - her married name, if she had a surname at all was Mountbatten-Windsor but she had a title in her own right and so was Lady Diana.

Common law in the UK can't just be ignored - and that is what it would be to try to strip Sarah of the same rights of every other woman in the land - and that is what you are suggesting - to say that she isn't the equal of every other woman despite being the mother of two of HM's granddaughters.

It can't be done by LPs as her style isn't created by LPs as she was only the wife,  only Andrew's title was. It will take legislation and under the existing common law and other existing legislation wives and ex-wives have rights - and that includes the right to continue to use her married name after her divorce.

Don't forget that one more child to William and Kate and Andrew and Sarah can remarry without any consequences at all - and I wouldn't be surprised if that actually happens - and most certainly would if Sarah was to be stripped of her right to use her married name as a divorced wife. Should they remarry then she would also get back the HRH and not one thing anyone can do about it.

I think Sarah would love nothing more than to go back to being Andrew's wife; she would get her HRH back, she would have her security, and she would be able to gloat that she lived and came back into the royal fold while Diana is dead in her grave. I always did think that Sarah dreamed of somehow getting back at Diana in some way.

I think Andrew and Sarah are following the Charles/Camilla strategy; wait long enough, stay together long enough, and basically get the ring. It would warm Sarah's cockles that she would regain her HRH, royal protection, and she would be a lot smarter about not messing up since she would be fully aware of the boon she's enjoying. Diana out in the cold, in an exploited grave while she Sarah, is back in the palaces and castles. I've always thought that Sarah has secretly hated how Diana got a fat settlement, residence in KP, and basically excellent press and beaux.

I think she's hopeful that HM will either break or Philip will drop and HM will give in despite all the destructive things she's done. After her divorce, she was on good terms with the Queen, had begun to make mounds of money and could have lived off of the interest of her gains alone, but she threw it all away and frankly as far as I'm concerned, the Windsors are so weak for allowing that woman to freeload the way she has.

I think the real issue is immaturity; Andrew hasn't really grown up in many ways and Sarah was matched with Andrew via Diana and he was down and Diana thought it would be great to have a friend as a relative. I really do think I he is kept from moving on by her and by his unwillingness to grow up and kick her out and make her make her own way in the world. I think he's like a lot of royal men in this respect.

Post by: Kuei Fei on July 19, 2016, 07:55:23 am
I think bringing Sarah into the BRF was the biggest mistake Diana ever made; Diana had blind spots about people and Fergie has been one of them. If Diana had not done matchmaking, chances are Andrew would still be married to a woman he himself had chosen and HM had approved of. It's too bad that the BRF was so harsh about Koo Stark, that would have likely bound the US and Britain closer and Koo would likely have been an excellent Duchess. Meanwhile for some reason, Fergie's ski bunny past wasn't held against and now look at the mess that has been caused.


Title: Re: Sarah, Duchess of York: News and Pictures
Post by: kolkomilko on July 19, 2016, 08:00:54 am

Title: Re: Sarah, Duchess of York: News and Pictures
Post by: Kuei Fei on July 19, 2016, 08:49:45 am
Of course, for some reason the BRF are worried about talking to the press instead of specific warning signs in regards to personality. Waity kept the no-press rule (at least overtly), but ended up getting the ring and causing horrific damage. Fergie kept the discretion rule, look at her antics.

I think (according to Kitty Kelly) Koo would eat HM's favorite chocolates while visiting, arranged picnics, and basically wore a short ra-ra skirt to a dinner. For some reason the BRF foolishly thought that Koo was unsuitable as a result, even though Koo didn't really owe the BRF adherence to any kind of dress code. I would in fact be relieved since Koo wasn't putting up some false front and wasn't basically lying about herself. Thing is, Sarah behaved well and got on well with HM, but look at the walking disaster she was as an HRH and basically humiliated Andrew from day one.

I do think that Sarah still nurses a HUGE amount of *despise* towards Diana, mainly since I think a lot of her unresolved issues stem from always being second place. Diana was the daughter of a wealthy Earl, Sarah the daughter of a bankrupt farmer from among the penurious gentry. Diana's sons are lauded (not so much William) while her daughters get derided all the time. Meanwhile, she's in debt again and Diana got a HUGE settlement. While Diana god all the bright shining press and awards, she got crucified on a regular basis and Sarah got left with next to nothing.

Exactly KF

But she needs to get over herself, she's nearing 60years old now, and realise that she not owed anything from anyone -and never was- just because she is/was Sarah Ferguson. It's this whole thinking that this current generation sometimes have (someone labelled them as Generation Snowflake) that they are owed adulation, love, money etc etc just because they think they should. And Sarah has that in bucket loads.

Plus her hugely inappropriate statement at PW wedding that she feels closer to PD because both of them were not at the wedding.  :-

What?! bignono

His mum, PD died. She wasn't invited because she died when he was a child, yet she is still thinking that they are on the same level. No Sarah, you weren't invited because you weren't wanted there. It's not your wedding so you don't get to decide who is invited or not. But if you're invited to your own daughters' weddings, then great. Have a fab time but you need to move on from this absurd entitlement reflex you have. It's called envy.

And one of the reasons PD got to wear all those fabulous clothes is because she worked. Hard.

So get over yourself already.

Post by: Kuei Fei on July 19, 2016, 12:34:09 pm
I don't think she ever got over being the lesser preference for the BRF since day one; according to the biography about her, Fergie was always considered first backup, not first choice and I think it preyed on her sense of belonging and self worth. When you throw in the fact that she was always the poorer relation; all the girls at the ski chalets wore better clothes, had better jewelry, and more money than she did. Sarah's alienation is what caused her to conform so desperately to be accepted and then go wild once she was in and had access to all those goodies. then go figure, she messed up the one chance she had to make a great life for herself and then ended up making things even worse. As for that comment about her and Diana being on the outs over the WK wedding, that was one of the worst things I have ever heard. She keeps plumbing new depths.

Yes, she is "Duchess of York," not "THE Duchess of York." This is why in the case of royals, no ex should be able to use their former title in any way. I don't believe it would be a good idea for her to continue to use the York title. She's still pushing and trying to get more advantages.

 I read a biography about her and basically, her entire life has been summed up as being second place, but also unwilling to follow any rules or constrictions. She thought she was staying true to herself while making an idiot of herself in public and breaking all the royal rules. Then there were her battles with the courtiers and her inability to vet anyone she hung out with. As for being second place, she was always in many ways second to Diana. Second when it came to positive press coverage, second in regards to wealth, second in regards to status via birth (Fergie comes from landed gentry and not the aristocracy) and frankly her family wasn't wealthy or anything other than struggling. It's not like she had great looks and while struggling with her weight, messed with drugs and too much booze and damaged her body's ability to lose weight healthily. She never really has learned from her mistakes and her mind seems broken as she fixates on the past and keeps mentioning so much about her royal life.

If she were not so fixated on her past and trying to get a title, I am certain that she would have ended up better off by now. She needs to let the past go and stop hanging onto her daughters and stifling their own growth.

friends feared she would commit suicide after her break-up from Prince Andrew.

The Duchess of York separated from the Prince in 1992, before their divorce was sealed in 1996.

Speaking at an event at London's China Exchange last night, she spoke of the turmoil she was thrown into after the royal couple broke up.

She said: 'There was a moment when I did not want to come out of the room. One of my good friends who was looking after me, she did think every time she came into the room that I would have committed suicide.

'It was when the world saw a huge public humiliation and I think those experiences have made me much stronger.'

When she became engaged to Andrew, she had a huge debt in her account, had little to no income (because of her constant vacationing she was barely working), and had married a man who was faithful and basically indulgent. Instead of occupying her free time constructively, she decided to overspend, chose to mess around with dozens of lovers, and basically run amok. She had the biggest chance in the world to enjoy a stable, secure marriage, but threw it away with both hands. Now she's so bitterly remorseful. When she had it, she didn't care about it.

She had no business being left with so little to work with financially and while she made millions, the Windsors should not have been so cheap in the settlement. Frankly she had nothing, was left with little. She should have gotten at least ten million pounds and been left to make her own way. I wonder how differently she would have lived life if she had done so.

I wonder how things might be different if HM actually had the guts to issue an LP to remove the courtesy title from Fergie and basically reduce Fergie back to having the status as a member of the untitled gentry. It might actually end up being a huge wake up call that she needs, that she is no longer a member of the BRF and it would set a precedent that anyone who leaves the family leaves with any title they came into it with. I think the courtesy title "Duchess of York" has only kept Fergie in a kind of psychological limbo and prevented her from moving on.

There are no LPs that created Sarah - Duchess of York so there are none that could be issued to strip her - unless she were to strip Andrew of his title. Sarah's title comes from her marriage and all divorced wives are entitled to continue to use their married names - regardless of who they are - whether it is Mrs John Smith becoming Mrs Jane Smith or any other women.

She is no different to any other woman and to say she is is unfair.

She could still be Mrs. Mountbatten-Windsor if she insists on using her husband's name... just drop the titles because she is no longer royalty. I don't think keeping the title has done her any favors. And it would also cause confusion if Andrew were to remarry because then there would be two people with the same title. Imagine a king divorcing a queen, she keeping her title, he remarries and then there are two (or more) queens? Doesn't make sense. Yes, there can be multiple Queen Mums but that is different.

There have been multiple Dukes, Earls etc (including the Queen's cousin the Earl of Harewood) who divorced, married again and the first wife was still Countess, Duchess etc, but with a different styling. They're addressed differently, for instance after her divorce Diana went from being the Princess of Wales to Diana, Princess of Wales. Diana's brother, Earl Spencer, has two exes still alive who were entitled to be Countess Spencer until they remarried.

Under British law wives are entitled to keep their married name until they themselves remarry, if they ever do. It's no different to Mrs Smith or Mrs Jones remaining Mrs Smith or Mrs Jones thirty or more years after their divorce if they want to. Some women don't want that and change back to their maiden names, of course.

I'd say Sarah doesn't want to be anything other than Sarah Duchess of York because it helps with her commercial activities in the US where some still regard her as a member of the BRF. She isn't, but it still doesn't change the fact that she is entitled, under the law, to be Sarah, Duchess of York until the day she dies if she doesn't remarry, (and I don't think she will.)

I don't think she will either.

She likes the title too much, plus the lifestyle she has acquired because of her association with the BRF.

We've never really left each other': Fergie opens up on her relationship with her ex-husband Prince Andrew as she's quizzed over whether they will reunite

They're know to be the friendliest of exes, and even shared a home for almost 20 years after their divorce.

And now the Duchess of York, 57, has intriguingly revealed that she and Prince Andrew have 'never really left each other', in an interview on Australian radio.

The mother-of-two, affectionately known as Fergie, made the comments on the hosts Kyle and Jackie O show when the former asked if they would ever reunite.

Post by: Kuei Fei on October 25, 2016, 01:08:34 am
HM should just issue and LP stating that ex-wives of the BRF are only able to style themselves with the surname Windsor or Mountbatten and all titles and styles will remain the property of the BRF. If HM had the guts to do it, it would send a message that you're in or out.


Title: Re: Sarah, Duchess of York: News and Pictures
Post by: Rosella on October 25, 2016, 01:30:41 am
The Queen would not be able to issue LPs depriving her sons' ex wives of their titles, as, by the custom of centuries, in Britain every single woman who takes on her husband's name when she marries, from Mrs John Smith, the postman's wife, to the new wife of Sir Henry Bloggs to the brides of Earls, Marquesses and Dukes, take their status from their husbands.

That remains, with the exception of the form of address, after divorce, and until they marry and take on the new husband's name if they wish. Some woman don't take on their husband's name at all and some revert back to their maiden names after divorce, but they cannot be deprived of their married name and title. There are no exceptions.

^That's what I thought.  That law is immovable.  Why should I lose my Mrs. John Smith because I'm divorced?  I have the right, by law, to change my name, as you suggested, but what would be the point unless my ex was a mass murderer or something.  I'd be thinking of my children and their futures at that point so it's a sensible law.  Nobody should be granted the power to take that away from anybody.  Whether anybody likes or dislikes Sarah, DoY, is neither here nor there.  She was legally married and is legally entitled to the name.

I wonder if whether or not Fergie is secretly reveling in the self-destructive behavior of William and Harry; for so long, Diana's Sons were the hottest ticket in the market and she was 'stuck' with the York princesses who would never inherit. Now, if Beatrice were considered a possible contender for the Throne, it is something that would make Fergie over the moon, a kind of permanent triumph that would give her 'one over' Diana. It would in fact make her not Queen Mother, but the Mother of the Queen and I cannot imagine just how nutters that would make her.

Let's be frank, the RF isn't filled with 'nice' people without ambition.

Title: Re: Sarah, Duchess of York: News and Pictures
Post by: Kuei Fei on January 03, 2017, 02:04:25 am
I'm not a fan at all; frankly I believe that while she is nice in the sense that she is fun, she's unstable and likely very bitter and has a toxic core to herself that is not going to heal at this point in her life. She's unwilling to let her daughters have lives of their own. I do think her jet set life has damaged her before she married Andrew. I don't believe that there is realistically a chance that Andrew will remarry her since if he wanted, he could have fought for it at any time. No way is Fergie ever getting back in. Even when HM drops, there will be Charles to contend with and I do not believe that she will ever get the HRH again. It's over for her really in that family and it's too bad she's so unwilling to move on and have any kind of life of her own.

I don't think Diana showed wisdom in promoting a match between Fergie and Andrew. I think spending much of her life in second place has damaged her as well.

does Andy even want to marry her or is she a albatross around his neck?  Does he feel guilty hence his tolerance of her?  He has been overheard saying unpleasant things about her.

Sarah is the perfect example of what happens when you live your life carelessly - fail to recognize what has value and care for it - so she is always trying to get back what she threw away. 

She looks awful in those pics -


Title: Re: Sarah, Duchess of York: News and Pictures
Post by: Kuei Fei on January 03, 2017, 05:46:16 am
If I were Andrew I would kick her out and order her to get a place of her own. He's being too nice and she's taking advantage. It's not like he owes her anything and while I wouldn't recommend leaving her in the street, she should be forced to move on her own two feet and if it means welfare, so be it. As for the title, that should be yanked and she should be known as Ms. Sarah Windsor and be content with that. I just find it disconcerting that Fergie can't seem to pull herself together and stop blowing money, hanging around people who just get her into trouble, and basically lead a straightforward life. I wonder if she's still mentally competing with Diana, despite the fact that Diana is dead and isn't a threat to her happiness and shouldn't be to her peace of mind.

Sums up the rivalry issue perfectly: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tlmCWK9hE_s

She needs to let the past go and move on. I don't see anything but more bad times ahead if she isn't cut fully loose. I think being a duchess, with a royal title, but not an HRH and fully accepted back has been eating away at her mind for years. I think she's kind of crazy because of it. That comment about being with Diana in spirit because she was banned from the wedding was well beyond creepy.

Diana's title, Princess of Wales, even minus the HRH, was still a royal title; according to many biographers. In the case of royalty, no attachment should be allowed. Sarah should be as Leogirl said. In the case of royalty, there should be a clear distinction and she should have it removed. Andrew is not every other man out there, he's a royal prince and a royal duke. She has no business clinging to a connection that was long since legally severed.

She was the wife of a peer of the realm and the divorced wives of peers are able to use their former title in the same way that Sarah does e.g. the divorced wife of Earl Spencer still uses Countess Spencer as do other divorced wives of peers of the realm.

Diana herself wasn't royal once she was divorced. She was only able to use Princess of Wales as it had been the style she used as the wife of the Prince of Wales. Had she remarried she would have lost the right to use Princess of Wales.

I sincerely think she's losing her mind and it's fascinating to see this kind of thing as it is happening. It's not like reading about it in the past tense, but as it is happening. Being known as Margaret York isn't going to help her and it's clear she is likely fracturing in terms of her personality. A new name won't turn her into a brand new person with her past and fundamental personality traits wiped out. I am certain that she needs to be hospitalized and afterwards, confined in the country at an estate where she can avoid doing damage to herself and her daughters.

Openly stating that she wished she had bulimia and wanting to call herself Margaret York? I think she's reached the breaking point mentally and is now far gone. I don't think she's reached a point where she's going to end up going crazy, I think she's passed that Rubicon. I think she's been literally insane for quite some time.

I think she's been gone for a long time, it just isn't openly stated and I don't think she's aware that it's all over for her mentally and emotionally. A person can be insane, but functional and I believe that there isn't any more left for her mentally and emotionally. I wonder what on earth happened to her that would break her like this (although the abuse she got in the press was damaging) and I don't think she's really going to end up 'coming back' to sanity.

I wonder if whether or not losing her "HRH" sent her over the edge for some reason.

The entire RF makes HM look weak; I'm disgusted at how Fergie lives on while Diana ended up dead in Paris. It is consolation that despite her hold over HM, she is in fact not at all living a better life. On the fringes and basically thoroughly discredited; no billionaire suitors and no one takes her ventures seriously.

Fergie's new executive role schmoozing the Chinese: Duchess of York gets new job as director with media and entertainment company
Quote
After her alter-ego was exposed, Fergie kept her professional head down. But now she is having another brave stab at being an entrepreneur and has got a new job as executive director with Gate Ventures, a media and entertainment company.
The company's CEO is Geoff Morrow (a former songwriter who penned Can't Smile Without You for Barry Manilow), and it makes investments in the UK and the Chinese performing arts sector.
The enterprising Duchess has taken on a host of business ventures since her divorce from Prince Andrew in 1996 by cashing in on her royal connections.
Fergie has been tidying up her business affairs in recent months. She corrected company records for La Luna Investments and Strawbugs Ltd so that Sarah, Duchess of York, not the fictional Margaret, is listed as a director.
At the same time, she cleared up confusion over her directorships of two other companies, Fergie's Farm and tea business Ginger & Moss.
Both listed her as HRH Sarah Ferguson — even though she was stripped of her title in 1996, almost 20 years before both businesses were set up.

When is the UK government going to get the royals under control? Fergie isn't an HRH, but she is connected to the RF and the RF has a bad habit of thinking they can play with the Chinese and not get burned. The Chinese are better at this and have outfoxed just about everyone. They are not at all being nice or truly believe she has brains and skill, but because of that connection, which means that they have access to the BRF bypassing the UK government. I am certain that this idiot thinks she's on par, but she isn't. The BRF is clearly messing with experts and they are clearly unaware that the Chinese are using them to get concessions using the power and leverage that the BRF have. First William with meddling in the World Cup and now this new act of idiocy.

Did FERGIE arrange for Harper Beckham's birthday tea party at Buckingham Palace? David Beckham defends daughter's royal welcome from Eugenie in event 'organised by Duchess of York'

    Harper Beckham was invited to a tea party at the palace by the Duchess of York just days before her milestone
    And pictures - including her holding a balloon  - were posted on social media today, Harper's actual birthday
    The highly unusual move was considered by critics online to be 'too much' for David and Victoria's daughter
    David later was forced to clarify the event 'wasn't the palace opening the gates for Harper's birthday party'
    A family spokesman also clarified that the event was a private function organised by the Duchess of York

Also: Sarah, really? I mean really Sarah! We all know you're desperate as fck, but this is a new low and won't entice you any more to anyone. What is going on in that head of hers fck knows.

PS And also Vicky getting that OBE for "services to fashion", I mean wtf! Stealing designs, hiring an actual designer and passing it off as her own and then tanking the whole brand by firing said designer after the exposure and scandal with her own designs is hardly something I'd call a legit "contribution" to anything.
The becks and fergs should write a book "How to be dead-desperate, shill your kids and yourself and embarrass everyone nin the process whilst making yourself the laughingstock of the nation and garnering hatred".

I don't know what did her in so much, but I guess the Winds, the marriage, divorce, bankruptcy, scandals, sunbathing, drinking and smoking.. plenty actually and many look awful after so much bad happening in their lives (not that it's not partly her own doing). I don't know, but I do always get a good shock when I see her w/o photoshop, same with Kate.. Two peas in a pod, eh?  :sigh: It's actually amazing when you think about how good Diana looked, though her skin wasn't the best towards the end either, too much sun & apparent sun damage (though nothing that couldn't be fixed down the road), but really all that stress and sunbathing and she looked quite amazing!

Avoiding drink and drugs did more for Diana than anything else; Fergie allegedly used to do a ton of coke and she just loved herself the finest wines and other drinks that can be on offer. That is where the real damage comes from. Throw in the manic instability and other aspects and she has done herself no favors throughout her life. She's wrecked her looks and she's wrecked her entire life really. Bad diet as well, plus abusing your diet via pills and constant fluctuations, it's asking for damage to be done.

Diana not drinking/partying and doing drugs kept her looking young. She was also barely 36 when she died... Kate will be 36 in January and looks awful because of the aforementioned activities, and Sarah will be 58 in October (22 yrs older than Diana ever got to be). Sarah hasn't aged well, but she is also approaching 60. If you look at any 40th high school reunion, some people look their age, some look 10-20 years older, and some look 10-20 years younger.

Even before her marriage Fergie was running with a rough crowd and living a rough life. Royal life gave her access to more and she took it all; with the rest of her life, the regrets she surely has have eaten her up and clearly she's at a point where she can't switch gears. She looks like someone who has clearly burned herself out. Diana died young, but in many areas, she was still making a lot of the right choices. Sun was her vice, but she just didn't abuse herself so much.

More than anything else, I think it's blackmail; something about Fergie has always rubbed me the wrong way and she has proven that she's not a good person, she's not someone who is misunderstood, and she's not someone who is going to turn into some kind of good girl who does good and stays good. Her holding on to Andrew is basically some form of blackmail and I do wonder why after she was caught selling access, she wasn't quietly incarcerated in a mental hospital and kept there. It would have been the perfect pretext and really, HM keeps letting all these chances of getting her out of the way slip through her fingers.

^so true. Whatever secret Sarah's blackmailing Andrew with should be made public. Andrew's never paid for any mistakes his made, so that's why he's a bloated useless arragant fool he's now, imo. The queen keeps giving into him for some odd reason and giving him promotions and awards after the underage sex scandal broke. He's still flying around the wrold on the tax payer's dime as a business envoy; a job that the public was told that he no longer has. The Yorks have done a lot of damage to the monarchy. I'm sure that there are ways to sideline them or something to get them in line but no one seems to be doing anything about them. They're disruting Charle's plan for a slimmed down monarchy because of Charles not giving the Bea and Eugenie royal roles and Andrew feeling less important in the royal family because of it. Letting the Yorks out to hang and dry is far better than to keep them and their scandals in the royal family, imo. Fergires like a bad rash that left to fester and contaminate other. She's not a good person imo either.

Sarah Ferguson became an ambassador of the Aquiva Foundation after meeting its CEO, a German entrepreneur called Florian Bollen, at a charity event.
The Duchess’s photo was displayed on the Aquiva Foundation’s website, which called her ‘very engaged’ with the eco-charity’s work bringing affordable drinking water to people in need.
The foundation even boasted that Prince Andrew’s ex-wife used her ‘network of connections’ to ‘spread the word’ about the water crises in developing countries.
However, the foundation’s website has recently been taken down, its contact email bounces back, and the charity is in hot water for failing to file its accounts on time.
Due to the delay, the Charity Commission is contacting the Aquiva Foundation’s trustees, as part of its commitment to ‘uphold transparency’.
The Commission served the Aquiva Foundation with a default notice earlier this year for failing to file its 2014 accounts. The documents were eventually submitted 524 days late.
In its most recent accounts available, for 2015, the Aquiva Foundation had income of just £250, compared to £52,300 the previous year.
When I called the charity’s accountants to ask whether the Aquiva Foundation is still operational, one employee said: ‘I can’t give you any information.’ Bollen set up the charity in 2011.
He previously made a living building giant observation wheels, but two of the projects — the Great Berlin Wheel and the Beijing Great Wheel — were never built because of the ‘financial crisis’. He is now thought to be involved in the brewing industry.
A spokesman for the Charity Commission says: ‘All charities are required to provide information about their income and expenditure each year in order to uphold transparency — a key driver of public trust in charities.
‘The Aquiva Foundation is late filing its accounts so we will be engaging with the trustees to ensure that they comply with their reporting requirements.’
Sarah Ferguson’s spokesman was contacted for comment.

£5m on personal appearances, £22m on her TV animation shows and £9m on a health products deal: Now Fergie demands £40m from Rupert Murdoch for lost wages after Fake Sheikh sting
Quote
She wants Rupert Murdoch to stump up for all this
Personal appearances
Fergie claims that prior to the sting she made £799,000 a year from public speaking and TV appearances, which dropped to £52,000 and then zero.
So from 2010 to 2017 she says she’s lost £4.8m
The ‘Fergie’s farm’ roll out
She claims she had advanced plans for two TV animation shows – Fergie’s Farm, to be followed by Sofi On Safari. Merchandising and DVD sales would have swelled her earnings to a staggering £22m
The ‘Mme Pantaloon’ books
She says plans to launch her Helping Hands children’s book series in America were damaged by the Fake Sheikh scandal. She also had to shelve plans for a series, ‘Madame Pantaloon’, costing her £766k
The health products deal
She says she was in discussions with Windmill Health Products to promote personal care products, including appearances on the QVC shopping channel. The deal was scuppered by the scandal, costing her £8.6m
The big-money commissions
Fergie had agreed to help find investors for a merger of the Jaeger and Aquascutum fashion labels, and was working with an Oscar-winner on new film projects. Loss of commissions cost her £5.8m
The staggering total sum claimed by the Duchess for loss of earnings caused by the News of the World sting £40,584,625
Read more: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5292869/Duchess-Yorks-cash-access-sting-claim-hits-40m.html#ixzz54lydGu1H
She's quite mad. She decided to not take responsibility for her life as she still lived way beyond her means when she had money after the divorce. She's going to get a big reality check with this lawsuit.  :o


Title: Re: Sarah, Duchess of York: News and Pictures
Post by: Kuei Fei on January 21, 2018, 12:17:21 am
If she had had money sense, Fergie should have lived off of the interest of her ventures after making millions. She could have financial security and could have had more ventures, but she stupidly squandered all of it. This lawsuit might in fact antagonize Murdoch into reacting by releasing more damaging information that he has on the BRF. I'm certain that he has more info on the Duchess that could ruin her for good, so this is not a smart move.


Title: Re: Sarah, Duchess of York: News and Pictures
Post by: MOSAIC on January 21, 2018, 12:36:25 pm

She is quite simply totally deluded.  Her reputation was already in tatters at that time.  In fact no reputation to ruin even then.
Murdoch has recently been hospitalised   If anything happens to him I doubt she could expect  any mercy from his
two sons and certainly not from daughter Elizabeth.

Fergie faces £2million legal bill if she loses her fight for '£40million lost wages' after Fake Sheikh sting
Quote
New documents show Sarah Ferguson’s legal fees are likely to reach £1,354,056 by the time her £40million action against the publisher of the now defunct News of the World reaches the High Court, possibly in the autumn.
The newspaper’s costs are estimated at £951,195, and she could be ordered to pay them as well if she loses her battle for what she claims are loss of earnings since the story tainted her public image.
The documents show the Duchess has already spent £321,556 on legal action against News Group Newspapers and ‘fake sheikh’ journalist Mazher Mahmood, and has gone over budget on agreed or approved costs by £120,000.
But the Duchess, 58, has faced long-standing financial problems, and questions have been raised about how she will find the cash to fund her legal battle.
Brought up by her polo-playing father Major Ronald Ferguson, her penchant for first-class air travel and lavish gifts, as well as her apparent willingness to cash in on her Royal connections, has caused concern.
Read more: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5404647/Fergie-faces-2million-legal-bill-loses-lawsuit.html#ixzz57QlGIxk1
Where did she get £321,556 from in the first place? This could be the reason Eugenie's etting married in October; to make sure her mum's free to attend the wedding instead of still being embroiled in her legal case. I think Fergie's goin to lose because over the years, she's proven not to be a savy business woman and she's ruined her own reputation. The newspaper sting only highlighted how money hungry and imoral she is.  :cookie:

Thinking about it I probably already know the answer:  who put her up to this?  Who is urging her on?  Or is she just desperately scouting around to see
who she can tap for £40 million.  Not Murdoch luv  - not even to shut you up, not even out of pity.  You need saving from yourself, Murdoch won't do it.
What reputation?  That went long ago.

-Referred to her former husband as the best 'man, father and friend'
-Couple split in 1992 after six years of marriage and divorced four years later

mouse47., York, United Kingdom, 9 hours ago

If these two are considering getting back together then might I suggest they do it quietly and retire from public life. This woman may be great fun and a good mother, but dignity seems to be sadly lacking.


the woman is a hopeless mess, it's not moot, but she's above all a genuine sort, nothing fake about her, as in Sophie, Kate and Meghan, and nothing cunning - like Camilla

Fergie's always gushing about Andrew and her 'girlies'. I'm sure she does love them but it also keeps her relevant and part of the Royal package, or so she thinks. And this woman wouldn't know what dignity is. She was bad when she was young, now she's older she's become even worse. Gosh, she's going to be so centre stage at the October wedding and glorying in it all. It will be her finest hour since her own wedding. The royals will just have to be stoic. I'll be interested to see how Philip manages!!

You know, she is the one that wanted out, not the other way around. HM allegedly didn't want Fergie to leave the marriage, so I don't get WHY Fergie's hanging on is tolerated. She wanted out, got thrown out after those photos were published during their separation, suddenly she wants to hold on to all that status. She should be locked in a psych ward and forced to deal with her contradictory nature. Her renouncing of her royal life didn't liberate her, it only threw her into the celebrity milieu that only hurts her.

Just like before her marriage, she's trying to keep up with a wealthy set and she keeps struggling to keep up.

Post by: HRHOlya on February 25, 2018, 01:42:42 pm
^ I don't think that Fergie really wanted out. Diana talked her into it as test-drive for herself, so she'd better know how to handle a divorce from Charles. But I don't think it was Fergie's greatest idea to want out, I think she was in limbo regarding that decision. Then the pictures were published, and the one who really ordered the divorce was actually Liz the queen mum, not Liz II. Liz II ordered the divorce on her mother's orders. Actually Liz the qm drove many decisions of the family and had great influence on Liz II and Liz II did up to the end what mummy ordered, and also Phil as "head of the family". I just don't know what the breaking point with Philipp was, because he's famously the one who still doesn't tolerate Fergie, did that come with the toe-sucking pics or later? Liz II never really had anything against Fergie, even after that humiliation.

That is the great change in Liz II, before her mother's death she ordered divorces and radical things at the behest of her mother (&partly Phil); since her mother's death she's been the famous ostrich who wouldn't utter one word, even if BP itself were to collapse, as long as it doesn't "hurt" the monarchy and Phil doesn't explicitly order anything.

Her problem is this delusion that being completely unrestrained means she's being authentic; I read a book about her called "Fergie Confidential" and basically it's practically a catalog of her making one bad choice after another all in the name of 'being her real self' and ignoring almost all advice on a nonstop basis.

I understand that The Queen gave Fergie quite the scolding and Fergie was sent packing. I don't think the Queen needed the Queen Mum  to get mad at Fergie. She was furious by all accounts. And the topless photos were lying all over the breakfast table at Balmoral. Cringeworthy stuff.

I don't blame the Queen Mum for QE II's decisions. If the Queen listened to the Queen Mum she would never have allowed CHarles to marry Camilla. The Queen Mum was strongly against the wedding of C and  C. I think the Queen allowing the wedding was very radical. The only "traditional" thing she did was not attend the registry wedding.

i think she knows where all andrew's skeletons are - before the underaged girls scandal i'd never understood that 'friendship', but after that all makes sense. in late 1990s, she was involved with a italian count/aristo he was stranged of his wife but never divorced... she probably would have married him if he had got a divorce

^^ Very true, Liz II isn't a puppet and I guess she indeed was furious and had words with Fergie. It was sth I watched, a docu I think (? I should keep better track so I can refer to things in case anyone else is interested), but basically it was said that Liz II acted on her mum's orders in many many things (incl the York marriage dissolution), and after Liz died Liz II then just let go and became the ostrich she is; it was said that she was before that "too hands-on" (thanks to her mum) ordering divorces etc, and after her mum's death she became way "too hands-off" (e.g. allowing the C&C marriage and similar).

I find it ironic that Fergie, since leaving Andrew, has never had luck in love. Before she dated and married Andrew she basically got passed around and hung out with a fast set of people where she coludn't keep up financially and now she's basically back to it post-divorce, trying for one man after another, getting rejected and humiliated.

She was messing around with that financial adviser in 1992. Those pictures came out that year.

Sarah is genuinely good with kids and the people, different of DIana's daughter-in-laws (2 very fake women) - particularly the latest one.

She was called a breath of fresh air when she joined the royal family. Sarah though can be quite clueless which got her into trouble in various ways. IMO. she probably does look forward to being a grandmother.

i agree she was a breath of fresh air (like diana was). she definetely was the last one to marry into this family. kate and meghan are nothing like that. Funny thing is Diana' danughters-in-law makes Sarah look well!

I cannot get over how she manages to get these 'jobs' despite not being a member of the BRF anymore and yet has all the perks and protection. I will never understand WHY she filed for a separation since she had it a lot better than Diana and at least had a better husband to her who was faithful. She didn't have it half as pressure filled as Diana did and she had the especial favor of HM and at some point even Charles approved of her.

She may have been deluded enough to think she had a future with one of her financial advisers.

Post by: CathyJane on September 08, 2018, 02:52:15 am
Probably. She should have gone back to Paddy whats his name, the guy she was with before Andy.


Title: Re: Sarah, Duchess of York: News and Pictures
Post by: Kuei Fei on September 08, 2018, 03:02:43 am
Paddy never wanted to marry her; allegedly after his marriage ended he became a devoted father and didn't want to remarry, something he had to remind Fergie of time and time again. After all her scandals, I don't think he would want her around his sons as a stepmother or even as a girlfriend/mistress.

She may have been deluded enough to think she had a future with one of her financial advisers.

None of them made enough money to maintain her in what she views of how a royal should live. Bryan would never have been on her list of eligible men and I am certain that she would never have ended up getting Andrew if not for Diana's naive matchmaking idea. Really, Diana was foolish to think Fergie would be a good royal duchess.


Title: Re: Sarah, Duchess of York: News and Pictures
Post by: sandy on September 08, 2018, 01:56:15 pm
Diana wanted a "friend" close by and felt Fergie's marriage to Andrew would help. It did....at first. But Andrew fell for her and the matchmaking could have been a flop potentially.


Title: Re: Sarah, Duchess of York: News and Pictures
Post by: Kuei Fei on September 15, 2018, 09:06:39 am
Diana also thought that Fergie would be a great source of comfort and camaraderie, but Fergie ended up being a brown noser and did her best to ingratiate herself among the other members of the BRF, which had the effect of isolating Diana all the more. I don't think Fergie and Diana were buddies, Fergie just insinuated her way into Diana's life and maxed out the opportunity to get in via Diana's indlugence and snagged Andrew. I don't care how well connected she was, Tina Brown was right when she wrote in her book that landing the second son of the monarch and future Duke of York was a spectacular achievement for the second tier Sloane that Fergie was at the time. I do believe Fergie still has major resentment and jealousy issues in regards to Diana and I do believe that Diana was back-stabbed by Fergie almost every step of the way.

Sarah Ferguson net worth: How much is Duchess Of York worth? How does she earn her money?

The Duchess is worth about £764,000, equivalent to one million US dollars, says TheRichest.com.

https://www.express.co.uk/news/royal/1029028/sarah-ferguson-net-worth-how-much-duchess-of-york-worth-earn-how

Somehow I doubt she has that much money. I wonder if she dropped her lawsuit against the newspaper for her pay for access to Andrew that she said the press ruined her image to make money for publishing her in action.  :bored:  As usual she didn’t take responsibility for her own actions in the matter.

Would the £764,000 be cash in the bank, or in kind? How much would her tiara and other jewellery Sarah got as gifts when she was in the BRF be worth, and how much did she put into the mortgage of that Swiss chalet she and Andrew bought together a few years ago?


Title: Re: Sarah, Duchess of York: News and Pictures
Post by: HRHOlya on October 10, 2018, 08:08:42 pm
^^ Those are often abstract numbers and take into account income, property, estate and marketability, not cash in the bank/ "fun money" lying around to spend.
Taking into account her tiara and other jewellery, clothes, the Swiss chalet and the "pull" she still has to flog stuff on QVC and sell books, I'd say US$ 1mil isn't that far fetched in terms of net wrorth.

The good old "cash poor, asset rich" comes into play here.

I think Fergie does all sorts of shady things for money, things that would curl the hair of any woman really; I also suspect that she's living off of the taxpayer via Andrew.

Is it mortgaged? It may have been purchased outright.

According to this there's a joint mortgage on the ski chalet and Andrew and Sarah occupy different parts of it. Still, it is a Fail article, so who knows. However, she had only just wiped her previous load of debts at the time of purchase, so whether bought outright or mortgaged, Andrew would have been a chief contributer you would think. Maybe one or more of Fergie's generous friends lent her the money for it?

I'm not divorced from Andrew - I'm divorced TO him': In her first full interview for 20 years, Sarah Ferguson discusses her weight issues, complex personal life, Eugenie’s wedding... and THAT remarriage gossip

Only the coldest of hearts could fail to warm to Sarah, Duchess of York. Dotty and generous, she is bursting with energy and child-like joie de vivre.

‘Oh, I am in every way a child,’ she agrees, in that ‘posh but not plummy’ voice we remember so well from when she first burst into the Royal Family like a flamed-haired wrecking ball in the 1980s.

‘It’s who I am. It gets me into endless trouble. People think you’re impossible or difficult if they can’t relate to you, if you don’t take life seriously. But the key to me is that I look at life with a child’s sense of excitement and joy.’

Doesn’t she just. Who didn’t fall in love with her all over again (while holding a nervous hand over our eyes) watching her at her younger daughter Princess Eugenie’s wedding to Jack Brooksbank last month. There she was, breaking with protocol yet again to hug well-wishers in the crowd before entering St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle.

I’m starting again at 58’: Sarah Ferguson reveals she ‘murdered herself’ with self-hatred following her divorce from Prince Andrew – but now their life together is ‘the greatest ever’
Sarah Ferguson has revealed how she 'murdered herself' with self-hatred following her divorce to Prince Andrew.

Fergie, 58, explained how she blamed herself for her split with the Duke of York in 1996, following ten years of marriage.

However, she says that her and Andrew's life together is now 'the greatest ever', branding it as 'our fairy tale'.

The Duchess of York also described how she's 'starting my life at 58', after returning to the royal fold earlier this year.

She is both lost and broken; broken mentally if she thinks anyone is fooled by this and she is lost since it is clear she has not moved on at all from her time as an HRH. I am certain she is clearly lost and unable to comprehend life for some reason. She doens't seem to understand that no one owed her anything and I believe that she has been trying to get respect without being willing to earn it.

Then why does she live with him? Why doesn't he throw her out for good and live his own life? He doesn't owe her anything and as for a paltry settlement, she made ten times, twenty times that amount over so many years. She doesn't deserve to live on royal estates and lodges and she does not deserve to be supported by him. She is so low, so cheap despite all her chances to better herself. Pity Diana thought Fergie would be a good match, Diana's instincts were grossly wrong in that respect. I know Diana viewed Fergie as a natural friend, but like many of DIana's 'friends,' the 'friendship' was one sided on Diana's part and parasitical on the part of Fergie. Diana made the mistake of thinking that Fergie was more than she really is, which is a cheap tramp who leeched off of every single boyfriend she ever latched on to.

Sarah Ferguson is launching her own lifestyle brand! Find out all about it
It's set to be a very exciting 2019 for Sarah, Duchess of York, since she has made an exciting announcement for the year ahead – she's launching her very own lifestyle brand! The news was shared by Sarah's assistant, Antonia Marshall, who posted some pictures of the products on her Instagram page. "Thank you @sarahferguson15 for the wonderful Christmas presents from your amazing new brand Sarah Senses, to be launched in 2019," she captioned her gallery of photographs. We can't wait to see more!
It's thought that the launch will support Street Child UK in some way – the charity for which Sarah is a patron – since the presentation box features a leaflet in name of the cause.

What Sarah Ferguson 'REALLY earned from Prince Andrew divorce'

SARAH Ferguson and Prince Andrew divorced in 1996, with the Duchess of York claiming that she received very little from the royal family in her settlement – but the true sum totalled was actually very high, according to senior Palace sources.


https://www.express.co.uk/news/royal/1090855/sarah-ferguson-news-prince-andrew-divorce-earned-royal-news-spt


Title: Re: Sarah, Duchess of York: News and Pictures
Post by: HRHOlya on February 24, 2019, 06:59:40 pm
^ "The Duchess of York’s claims reportedly infuriated Palace officials, with a senior courtier telling the the Telegraph: "The Duchess's claims are quite extraordinary.”

The source added: “She was treated extremely generously and she has now behaved appallingly."

Senior sources gave the newspaper details of the 1996 divorce settlement, totalling around £3million, which included:

    £500,000 provided by the Queen for her to buy a new house for her and her children.
    £1.4million provided by the Queen to set up a trust fund for Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie.
    £350,000 in cash provided by the Queen which had no restrictions on its use.
    An agreement that the Duke of York would pay his daughters' private school and university fees.
    A modest monthly allowance which it is believed was then based on the Duke of York's salary as a Royal Navy officer.

However, another source disclosed to the newspaper that Fergie took advice around the year 2000 from Diana’s divorce lawyer, Anthony Julius, who helped the Princess of Wales secure her staggering divorce settlement.

They reported that Fergie had a view to “to go back to the royal family and renegotiate the settlement” and that “Mr Julius was outraged by how small the settlement was”.

However, in the end, the Duchess of York did not pursue a new divorce deal.

Unlike Diana, who was bound to a strict confidentiality clause by her divorce terms, Fergie has been able to disclose details of her married life and has made an estimated £2.2million from writing her autobiographies.

She has also remained in the marital home with Prince Andrew, in an unusual relationship which has prompted many royal watchers to speculate that the pair may be set to re-kindle their romance."

<< Which boils down to what's been known all round and that Fergie has been given basically nothing. Because all the greater sums were set to go to their daughters.  It is really shameful how little she got and I'd have fleeced them like Di did, Fergie "had Liz's friendship", yeah great, doesn't buy you a clothes, a roof over your head or pay the electric bills....

^I thought that was a decent settlemet. The thing is that Ferfie has said herself in interviews that she became asccustomed to the royal life and wanted to still live that way after the divorce. She comes ff a nice bust stupid in that she doesn't take resposibility for herself and her actions. He conducts herself like an idiot not knowing when to stop and just shut up and relax.

Interesting that Dickie calls her an outsider.  :cookie:

The Duchess of York looked in great spirits as she enjoyed a night at the theatre.

Sarah Ferguson, 59, was all-smiles as she hit the red carpet for the opening night of Ain't Too Proud - The Life and Times of The Temptations' Broadway Play in New York on Thursday.

Posing up a storm for the cameras, Fergie seemed to be in her element.

Fergie's trip to New York comes after she flew out to Sierra Leone last month for charity work.
