Thank you Junebug. thumbsup

Sarah has always remained one of my favorite royals, along with the late Diana.....really good hearted people that you could relax with.  Cant imagine saying that with the present royals-except the York Princesses, the Princess Royal's children and Harry.

Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York, arrived in Belgrade's Nikola Tesla Airport for a charitable visit with the Djokovic Foundation at 3am last night.

She opened a refurbished primary school in Kadina Luka, near Ljiga, with tennis champ Novak Djokovic himself at 7am this morning, after he met her in Belgrade.

The school near the small town in the centre of the country is the first to have been renovated by the charity as part of its project Skolica Zivota (Little School Of Life).

Chuck didn't love Di. There was nothing to work out.
Well said!

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.

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

video Sarah and Andrew before they were married:They were engaged at this point
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kqSsLRf2K0c

I still think Andrew and Sarah were in love when they married.

I still like Sarah despite her problems.

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. A few stunning outfits and a dozen good patronages and she would have been fine. The Achilles Heel of the Windsors is how they want a finished product, not a long term good bet and worry about PR too much.

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.

Too bad no one ever listens to the courtiers.

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.

William and Lupo: the real royal love match


« Reply #157 on: December 18, 2013, 07:30:25 pm »

^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.

I think once Beatrice and Dave announce an engagement, there may be  York remarriage on the way.

^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.
