I doubt Sarah would want that. In one of her latest interviews she said that it was the lack of money of the second son that forced her into the divorce. I don't think Andrew was that "poor", but Sarah obviously has different ideas about her lifestyle. There's an element of greed into it, as I can't imagine leaving the man one loves fro money without being greedy at heart. But greedy people make bad Royals, IMHO.

Wouldn't it be easy for Andrew to find someone better than Sarah, who has caused him and the RF so much hurt and embarrassment? Perhaps he has already found happiness in this regard and the press just hasn't found out.

I don't think Sarah and Andrew would remarry. Even if they end up romantically linked, I think they will spend time together, but continue to maintain a certain distance, allowing each of them to pursue their various interests. IMO Sarah is not going to be willing to get sucked back into the can of worms her previous royal life ended up being - and frankly, she can do without the public scrutiny. That is an acceptable situation from the point of view of the BRF as well, since they don't really have to put up with Sarah being a working member of the BRF, and it will probably also put an end to all the sometimes inappropriate women that Andrew ends up with. The focus of the BRF will be the Wales children, without the distraction of a Duchess of York Mark II!!!

I don't think Andrew and Sarah will remarrry either. I don't think they have that sort of relationship. You can be very close to someone as a friend/confidante/etc. w/out it crossing the line into romance. And they are the parents of two daughters which will keep them linked forever. While the idea of Andrew as a bachelor prince is most appealing, you have to wonder if he's lonely or ever craves love and affection. Or maybe, as someone pointed out, he has found someone special and is keeping it strictly private. Tho if it were a serious relationship I doubt he'd be able to conceal it for too long.

It's not that he could find somebody BETTER than Sarah, he just doesn't have any goals to share with a helper. Look at PC and Camilla. She shares his goals and dreams for this country. What goals and dreams does PA have? If he had some clear, well-thought out ones, he might be in the hunt for a helper to manifest them. I think he's just golfing through the rest of his life. . . .

Oooh, thats harsh! Whilst I am no fan of Andrew's, I do think everybody is entilted to their own goals and aspirations in life, and are entitled to share their lives with people who share similar goals. Whilst Prince A is a member of the BRF, he is not going to be getting the top job, so in reality, I think his own personal aspirations are no different from those of a normal person.

I think it would be a terrible mistake if Andrew and Sarah remarried. I think their credibility and whatever respect they've worked all these years to attain would go right out the window. IMO, most people have forgotten (thankfully) the fiasco of Sarah's very public (and stupid) adultery and I think most ppl have and are willing to forgive and forget, so to speak. If her and Andrew marry again it's all going to be brought up front and center. Sarah will look like a leech who's unable to continue a life outside the BRF (she'll def be accused of wanting back in on the "royal" lifestyle and I believe ppl will believe she has just been biding her time until she could get her claws back into Andrew) and Andrew will look like a weak whipped child who's still under the spell of the woman who cheated on him, humiliated him and his family and brought disgrace to the royal institution. Remarriage would be a nightmare, I'm afraid. I so hope it doesn't happen.

Why on earth would they want to remarry?

They have this really wonderful post divorce relationship, acting as a family when they both share their daughter's highs and lows, and each other's, and still get caught every now and then having a romantic little dinner a`deux!

They are a stronger family apart than a many marriages. If it aint broke . . . don't fix it!

He certainly seems to be serious about his current role as a trade ambassador, and he had his naval career as well. It's my opinion that he wants to serve his country in some way.

I think there are some things that need to be made public. I hear Sky and Sam saying that he's not doing anything to warrant the civil list so I would think that expressing your passion to the people would help that out.
Mine aren't private. Anybody who knows me knows that being a cancer survivor I want to find a cure in my lifetime.
It would be nice if Prince Andrew were as vocal and passionate about a cause such as that.

(Well, if he were really vocal like me, they might get the little men in white to take him away.. . . )

And if he was to support such a worthwhile cause, he would have my support. Let industry be taken care of by the people who really know about it.

Any ideas on what this actually means?
Now why in the world when he told her never to say this she says it? I would think loose lips sink ships and would blow a reconciliation.


Oh Sky, you know me too well!!!

'Tis strange, I agree. Sarah appears to want us to think that it isn't over between her and Andrew, but yet they couldn't stay married for any number of reasons. She's in a netherworld between being still married to Andrew and being a single, independent woman.

Which makes me wonder, she was so possessive of Paddy What's-His-name in the past, does she still have some of those traits to cling to PA?
