And make excuses about it. However, being an optimist I sincerely hope that she turns the corner. For the sake of HM. Really. And her children.

I genuinely believe that Sarah has played out her last "second" chance. And today's announcement of the wedding of William of Wales underscores that the baton has passed to the next generation: she's beyond the winsome creature who could charm her way out of her errors, decades past the Royal bride.

Quiet retirement on an adequate pension. Perhaps they'll even let her come to the wedding. Perhaps. If they lock up the liquor.

Since William gave Kate Diana's ring, I think he is very anxious to honour his mother. And even though Diana and Sarah weren't speaking at the end, they were good friends for years, and Sarah is also the mother of William's cousins who are fairly close to his age. I think he'll keep that in mind. I wouldn't be surprised if Sarah is invited to the wedding (and sits in the "friends" section...not with the family).

I think Sarah will be invited to the wedding.

It would be an act of extreme generosity to invite her to the wedding. I wouldn't make book on it.

Nor would I, NAPretender. Unfortunately, we may be in the minority.

Maybe Sarah can pull herself halfway out of the mud by perhaps penning a book on a royal wedding?
Just a thought.

I can't imagine Sarah being invited to the wedding, after everything that has happened. I believe, also, that "the baton has passed to the next generation", and that, even if this latest scandal had not happened, we'd still not be seeing much of Sarah anymore. Maybe she'll get the occasional job, or there will be the occasional sighting of her coming out of a restaurant, but I do think this is the most we'll be seeing of her in the future.

I think some of you will be surprised (or maybe I will be). As has been said, William and Kate are the next generation. They don't necessarily feel the same way about Sarah as the senior members of the royal family do. (I don't imagine some of the senior members of the RF were keen on seeing Diana's ring again, but it was William's choice to give it to Kate.)

The point is that this is William and Kate's wedding, and within reason, they'll invite who they want to invite. How would William answer to his cousins if they asked whether their mother would be invited?

He'd say, "My wedding. My rules." Considering the feelings of most of the senior royals I believe she'd have to be on EXCELLENT behavior to be allowed. Not as an invitee but as a guess of either her daughter's or her ex.

It's not as simple as, "I'm your cousin so you have to do it."
It's "I'm your cousin, please do me this favor."

Cool

I don't know if Sarah will be invited. However, I can see her on one of the US networks as a Royal expert/commentator during the wedding. Oh joy. In fact, I'm sure we all we read or see her on tv with "advice" to Kate and bringing up her same stories about being in the Firm and being Royal.

Snork. You have a way with words, m'dear. Yes - I can absolutely see Sarah doing that, in the same manner that Charles Spencer did the US TV commentary on the York wedding in 1986.

Something along the lines of Joan Rivers.

Shouldn't a wedding be an occasion for generosity and reconciliation? Just asking.

Not particularly. A royal wedding has a degree of formality and protocol.
Sarah is no longer a member of the BRF, she is divorced, but as this wedding doesn´t seem to be the usual British royal wedding she may well be invited, besides Prince Philip has been very quiet lately.
I must say I would rather see her as a discreet guest than a commentator or advice giver.

That is a good point. Given Sarah's penchant for embarrassing behavior, it might be smarter to let her in so as to keep an eye on her. Still, it's quite horrible to think that someone can have you hijacked in such a manner.

William puts out an air of being his own man and you might think he'd put his foot down and tell her to stay out of it completely. It's one thing for Sarah to make Andy look like a fool, he seems to not mind egg on his face when it comes to her, but to screw up William's day, Sarah is asking for everyone to come out with guns blazing.

Doing anything to bring negative attention to this wedding will finish her , I've no doubt. The Queen, Phillip, Anne, Charles, William and a nation (regardless of their overall feelings toward the bride) excited for a moment that comes only once a generation or less, will wipe Sarah out.

At the time, I think that Charles Spencer had an ongoing work relationship with one of the US broadcast companies or had been working for one recently.
