I just think that there is no real need for her to do charity wrok. She is not a Princess, has been treated as "not one of us", by the RF for a long time and has also lost popularity with the British public who clearly don't want her around even as a "former Princess" public figure. So why not give up, get a normal job if she can find something, or just retire into private life. If she wants to be invoved with charities she can connect with some existing one and do something for them at times.
Anytime someone raises money to help right a cause is a good thing. Even Sarah. Personally, I think she’s lonely. She’s on the outside looking in. Her “happy divorce” song is all she knows. Yes it would be better if she would be more independent but I doubt that happening. It’s really sad when you think of it. I think at times it’s not her neediness that bothers people as much as her taking does. JMO-she’s lonely

Thank you for clearing that up. Here I thought she was working with charities like the Cancer trust (founded 1990), Children in Crisis (1993), Not for sale (2001), Care (1945) to name a few. I guess I missed that she had ditched these and was trying to what start new charities?????

Since when has been being a princess been a requirement to doing charity work? Or divorce mean you have to stop? Diana, Alexandra (Denmark) come to mind as proof that really isn't the case. Sarah is doing nothing any woman of her background hasn't done with their life. Focussing on charity and society work, after kids are grown.

But yes, she should abandon charities she has helped with for over 30 years, because she is no longer a royal. I mean that would be the responsible thing.

Again the Yorks get railroaded for breathing, people criticize them no matter what they do.

Retire into private life? We peasants do charity work as well. And I wont be hanging up my volunteer badge simply for lack of tiara. So why should she?

Ugh, what is that every time we see a photo of Sarah at some charity event the slugs come out. They slime everything she is or has done and judging by some posts, have an intimate knowledge of her personal finances. Even worse, they want her to go away, be banished from society because they have decided she is not worthy.

Well, you said it Countessmeout, why should she have disappeared once she was divorced? She has enough money not to have to need a job but she puts in an awful lot of time with charity work she has been involved in for decades and she doesn't mind getting her hands dirty to show the need.

People who troll someone they have never met except via gossip rags need to take a good hard look at themselves and asked if they have spent even two hours doing charity work in the last week? Month? Year? At all? Well I am betting it is never for almost all of them because anyone who volunteers for a charity knows it takes more time than fishing in your wallet or writing a cheque to support a charity.

Sarah gives of her time and, when invited she attends charity gala's and since she is not a multi-millionaire donor I can only surmise she is there because she is someone people enjoy having around because she isn't just a wannabe.

She gives of time ?? More likely gets paid for time !! This is how it goes with celebrities you get paid !!!!!!!!! I’m not going to continue with this but really a history of getting money from dodgy people plus has sold out her husband sold herself out.

Well, you know the rules. If she was paid for the charity work let's have some supporting evidence or save your breath to cool your porridge (figuratively of course).

Does it really matter if she's paid her expenses or gets compensation from organizations sometimes? As I see it, if she can bring in more deep pockets or garner more needed attention for a cause, its well worth it. And... the money paid her isn't coming out of our pockets so really no big deal.

No, I preferred her with long hair, especially the style she had on her wedding day.

There's the Starkie book, if you want evidence.

Now that Harry and Meghan are engaged, what are the odds that Sarah will be invited to this wedding? She wasn't invited to William and Kate's, but Harry has kept in touch with her to some extent, since he often visits Andrew and Sarah's ski lodge.

I think it's probably very unlikely she gets invited but who knows. She wasn't invited to Edward and Sophie's wedding either or the marriage of Charles and Camilla.

As she cried VERY pubicly that she was not invited to the last royal wedding (and it was such a shame etc ..), i really doubt that she will be invited to this one.
But who knows ...

I do think she should be invited, if only to make her daughters happy and to ... sort of pave the way for her daughters' eventual weddings to have a full list of senior royal guests.

Another thing -- if Sarah is excluded, her absence will be a very negative and competing story in the newspapers. That kind of negativity really goes against Harry's image.

But Sarah hasn't stayed in contact with Edward or Charles. She definitely has seen Harry in recent years, as Eugenie and Cressida are good friends.

I'm not sure what we'll happen either, but it seems to me there's more chance that Sarah will be invited to Harry's wedding than any of others.

Considering that this might be the last Royal Wedding that Prince Philip will attend (due to his great age), I don't think that Harry would want to put him through the strain of having Sarah at the wedding.

Sarah did not attend William's wedding. If my one brain cell is awake and active, I seem to recall that she went to Thailand or somewhere in the east to a health spa or something and wasn't in the UK during the wedding.

I'm just hoping that with this wedding, there isn't a repeat request for Sarah to do TV commentary for the big day. She turned it down for William's wedding but who knows what she'd think of the offer now.
