well, in all fairness to Sarah, she after all got the title of Duchess of York for life, didn't she. Correct me if that's wrong. If it isn't, she has all the right in the world to go and flaunt that stupid title, doesn't she.

I have a question. Forgive my ignorance on this one, but I just to this day don't get why she racked up so many debts during her marriage. Didn't she get a reasonable allowance of some sort? What on the planet did she (over)spend it on?! Didn't she have everything she needed in Buckingham Palace where she and Andrew had a condo?! Again, how did she manage to reck up millions of debt? How much was it anyway? And what happened with her 'second financial crisis' some of you are alluding to? how come she got into trouble again? She doesn't have a gambling habit or anything of the sort, does she?

From what I've read, she's never been able to control her appetites. She just couldn't/can't control her whims and desires. Again, a case of no self dicipline. She had regular shopping sprees in New York, not to mention in London itself.

As for her recent behavior, yes, I think she should start acting her age, but I doubt she will. She's dragging her kids to parties that are somewhat unsafe due to the people there (rap artists, other such), etc. and can't seem to comprehend the fact that she's almost what, sixty? The reason I think the royals are justified in exiling Fergie is because of the sheer reckless disregard for what was expected of her. It isn't asking for too much for her to behave in a dignified manner and remain aware of what is expected and rising to the occasion.

As for residency, well, they had apartments at Buckingham Palace, then their home Southyork, plus other places I'm sure. The allowance was mainly for spending money I think, but Fergie wanted out of season foods, extravagent clothing and jewels, which were at times too expensive. Plus she shamelessly abused her position as Duchess of York, blatantly requesting designers to send her free clothes and shoes.

What burns me is that it is up to the younger generation to clean up the mess the older generation has made. Fergie and Diana cheapened the titles that were bestowed upon them at marriage and had lots of fun, but in the end their kids are the ones paying the tab. Please don't start about Charles, I'm tired of people acting as if he's the only one who caused all the problems. In the end I am not a Fergie fan.

She may look almost 60 (with all her nips and tucks) but she's not even 50 yet. Poor thing.

Princess Mary hardly looks like she is "on the verge of a nervous breakdown." She has restored my faith in princesses and the standards of behavior they should represent while still being a princess of the people. She has not cheapened her title in any way. She is insanely popular in Denmark. Now, back to Sarah.

I don't think the Queen would have held back custody of the children but if Sarah had been truly destitute, the Queen would have naturally been concerned about the girls in Sarah's care.

Sarah's family wasn't well off, Andrew didn't have a large income and she had enormous debts. I think she could have found a more decorous and respectable way to pay off her debts but with the amounts she owed, it would have taken much much longer and one has to wonder how her daughters would have fared.
Many women are able to earn themselves a decent amount, without having to constantly remind people that they were married into such and such a family. I think what annoys me about her, apart from anything else, is her need to remind people, in the hope that they will treat her as something special, which of course she is not. Neither Sarah or the children were ever going to be destitute, Andrew still paid the girls upkeep and school fees and I didn't notice Sarah going without new clothing, makeup or food.

It's called Sunninghill and it's in Berkshire, it was of course nicknamed Southyork after the house in Dallas.

Here is a small article on her debts.

I realise you don't like her, but there's no need to start playing fast and loose with facts. She was born in 1959, which means she's in her mid-forties, and her marital home is called Sunninghill Park, not Southyork, which is a media invention.

I'm afraid I could easily see Sarah ending up destitute after the Queen refused to bail her out the last time. The girls would have been taken care of but Sarah, I just don't see the Queen or her family helping her out if she didn't get her financial house in order.

Playing a little devil's advocate here, if I may, skydragon, I think perhaps, you are very knowledgeable about the royal family and behavior of the British upper classes but the area of commecial endorsement in America, is a totally different world with different forms of expected behavior.

Commercial endorsement a time-worn way for a public figure to get back on one's financial feet and yes, of course, one is expected to trade on connections, or to play up whatever reason the public would have to be interested. With Sarah it was her association with the royal family. Its probably why Weight Watchers hired her; I don't think they would have liked it if she had refused to let them use her royal associations in their campaign.

Again, playing a little devil's advocate, you may well think that Sarah is nothing special, but she's getting on David Letterman and getting on the cover of Ladies Home Journal so quite a few people must think she's special or these people and organizations wouldn't give her the time of day. These people are in a business and they are not going to put her on their cover or put them on their TV show if they don't think she will attract interest. Its true that Sarah would not get this attention without her connections to royalty, but in this world, people don't care.

Sarah is not royal any more and she lives in a different world now with different expectations. If she was too loud and boisterous to be a royal when she was a royal, I think it was a little unrealistic to expect her to tone it down when she was no longer royal. Actually I see Sarah as a better fit in her current line of work than she was when she was a royal. The prim and proper way, I fear, was never going to be Sarah's way. To be honest, in her current area of business, she has had success and she has lasted a lot longer than other celebrity spokespersons.

Perhaps, as a member of the British upper classes you are most annoyed with her for betraying her own people, the British upper class and betraying the strictures and morals that the class represents? I come from a class-based upbringing in the American South but no doubt, its quite different from yours. But Southerners too react with horror when they perceive that one of their own has betrayed them.

I hope you don't take offense, skydragon because with my background, I can totally understand your aversion to Sarah because part of me totally recoils to anything that is attention-seeking, loud, brazen, or (as the Germans would say) unvershaemt (shameless).

On the other hand, now that I'm in New York and working with people in sales, marketing, media, and public relations, I am beginning to see how the other side lives so to speak and it definitely lives under the equally-held belief that the world is so saturated with images, soundbites, news and information that unless a person is loud, unique and forceful, that person won't be seen. In other words, bad attention is better than no attention.

Its a curious (and to me a foreign) way of living but one of my dear friends definitely comes from this world. She has a heart of gold but she embarasses me every time we go out. She, like me, grew up in the socially conscious and very strict Southern society and while it didn't bother me, it just about killed her and she couldn't wait to get out of it. It wasn't until I met her that I realized that there were some people whose personality was so big that a refined and conservative environment would kill them.

I certainly understand that the area of commercial endorsement in America is a totally different world with different forms of expected behavior. A also understand that a member of the BRF SHOULD NOT display those kind of behavior.

No need to be a member of the British upper class to be annoyed by Sarah's activities. I'm just a middle-class Canadian and I'm upset to watch her degrade the royal family of my country.

Thank you Ysbel! At last someone who shows some common sense and sensitivity to the argument!

Sorry ysbel, destitute to me speaks of the unfortunate souls who cannot even afford a bedsit, (a room in a house that is the bedroom and living room, sharing a bathroom and kitchen with several others), who cannot afford food, clothes, botox or anything else. This was never going to happen to Sarah, she may have had to suffer the indignity of 'cutting down' but, she would never have been destitute. The royal family or her own family would, IMO, have helped her out with accomodation and a small allowance, but she would have been expected to work at paying everyone she owed. The times I have heard someone say they have absolutely no money, only to find that is because the balance in their current account has fallen below 15,000 and they may have to take some money from their saving accounts!

I don't have any problem with her working. We all know of 'celebrities' and their commercial ventures and endorsements and we all except that. Just using the title DoY would have got her work, it's her perception that she has to remind people of who she was and what she once had. Her need to introduce herself as the DoY rather than Sarah. You can always spot a faded or failing star when they have to remind you of what they actually did.

I don't think people especially think she is something special, they want her in the hope that she will let slip some little snippet, a piece of gossip, something she has heard from her daughters. That by associating themselves with her, it will bring them kudos. If she was 'special' surely she wouldn't need to keep reminding people of her 'royal' past.

I am in some ways 'old fashioned', I listen to the quiet person, who holds your attention with that indefinable something, I buy from the person with a quiet, but absolute confidence in the product they are selling. Unique, yes, loud and aggressive, no.

There are people who do not thrive in a refined and conservative society, so why did Sarah marry into one of the most conservative institutions in the UK.

I always thought that Sarah was some what a free spirit, full of fun, and one that really enjoyed life. Yes, she may have fallen from grace, but she is human. I kinda like her.

I agree with you. I like her too, ok, she has made mistakes but who hasn't? It must be very hard to be a member of the Royal Family. I like the fact that she was always true to herself and did not change her 'out there' personality just to please the family. What you saw was what you got and I liked it.

Although, I don't like the idea of her encouraging her daughters to attend parties hosted by P Diddy etc. I love parties, don't get me wrong, its just that those sort of parties are not the sort of parties I thought parents would encourage their kids to attend.

But apart from that, it's thumbs up for Sarah from me

Oh, I love parties and I think the girls should be encouraged to go out and enjoy themselves at parties suitable for their age, but not with their mother. What is suitable for a woman of her age to attend, is not normally suitable for her daughters!

I think that even though Sarah isn't a member of the British royal family anymore she is still associated with them on a personal level enough to not be out endorsing even good companies like Weight Watchers or hawking her little red doll books or her own jewellery line.

As she has pointedly made note of in various interviews she is the mother of two princesses whose grandmother happens to be the Queen of England. She's clearly using her title, the Duchess of York, to draw attention for these products and for herself. Would Weight Watchers have hired her if she didn't have a title or weren't famous? If she were just plain old Sarah Ferguson who went on their program and lost a certain amount of weight? Why would they have chosen her specifically of all their thousands of other success stories?

Just as she wouldn't be on David Letterman, the Today Show or Ladies Home Journal if she were some regular British gal. She is connected to the royal family in a more personal way than as some servant or ex-employee or someone whom Charles plays polo with (i.e. a more casual connection), and I think she needs to respect that as the royal family doesn't officially endorse anything she shouldn't either. Even as an ex-family member. So long as she keeps reminding people that she is connected to the royal family she shouldn't use her Duchess of York title or name to associate herself with Weight Watchers or any other organization. If she steps out on her own on her own merits (which would be hard at this time since its so ingrained in the public eye) then that is something different.

To me, she's clearly someone who is trying to have the best of both worlds. She escaped the strictness and protocol-dominated world of the royal family and gets to have her freedom and to do whatever she wants. But she's still using her connection to the very family she's disassociated herself from by divorce to promote herself and to make herself money.

We later found out that their assets were down to $1 million. I could do a lot with a million dollars. :)

I do know of people from well-to-do and well-educated families who ended up homeless because they had so many problems the families couldn't deal with them and basically cut their ties. I don't think something that drastic would have happened to Sarah but she was out of control, much more than she is now, so if she hadn't gotten her life in gear, it would have been understandable if the families had cut their ties and taken custody of her daughters away. At the time, I was actually very surprised that they didn't. When Sarah lost her jewels in an airport, that act seemed so careless that she didn't seem to be responsible enough to handle children.

I understand that a lot of Sarah herself isn't that special. However, for a lot of people what makes someone special is the fact that by associating yourself with them, it will bring you kudos or some sort of inside scoop. In certain circles, it would be said that the Duchess provides value for that fact alone.

Mind you, I'm not trying to convince you that this is the right way, I don't even believe it myself. Only to open the discussion to another way of thinking and the possibility that the society that Sarah is inhabiting now is one for which her temperament is well-suited.

Yes, I understand what you mean. My one complaint with Sarah (and to a lesser extent Andrew) is that they're just not moving on. Its been 10 years since they've divorced and they seem still joined at the hip. I wouldn't even mind if she talked about Andrew and her daughters. I understand that they still have a lot of fondness for each other. But the idea that she is still hanging onto the hope of an invitation from Buckingham Palace for this or that, and Andrew working behind the scenes to get her invited makes me want to tell both of them to get over it. It didn't work out and they should get their own lives in gear.

I don't think that's old-fashioned, skydragon, just temperament. Some people I think are prone to respond more favorably to quiet confidence and others are more prone to respond to excitement and drama. I'm not that old and I still prefer a more reserved atmosphere whereas, people old enough to be my parents respond more to the excitement. They complain that the quiet confident person is cold and lacks warmth. (Incidentally, that was the very complaint Diana had about the royal family, I could see warmth and caring among the family members, but apparently she couldn't. I suspect the volume was too low for her)

I do think though lately the pendulum has shifted towards more excitement and drama at the expense of self-respect. In America, the sports world has been fixated on a football player who has self-destructed with two teams already for getting into loud conflicts and drawing undue attention to himself. He's on his third team now, and justed OD on painkillers. The press is eating it up even though the situation is dangerous to the player and distracting to the team. Actually its pretty sad and I think the same way that I thought about Sarah when she was married to the royal family - was that this guy has got to get away from it.

Why should she submit herself to the restrictions of a royal if she's not royal any more? Did the divorce not mean anything? Yes she did keep the title but that wasn't a special case made for Sarah.

As far as trading in on her connections, she has good company with Princess Michael who is also in restrained financial circumstances and has traded on her title to write children's books, and make appearances. The difference is that Princess Michael is still in the royal family which should be more of a cause for concern (and according to BeatrixFan, has style, don't know if that means anything as far as character goes but I'll agree with that one)

While I do like Sarah, I admit that everyone has stated very valid points on their issues with Sarah BUT I am going to have to respectfully disagree with some of the above.

Yes its admirable and very wise that they have managed to remain a cordial relationship and have shared in the raising of their daughters. Too many divorced couples upon divorcing their spouse take it upon themselves to divorce themselves from any relationship with their children.

If it was one or the other who was NOT moving on and in essence hindering the other (Sarah or Andrew) from having another relationship then I would agree. As we all know both Sarah and Andrew have had relationships since they divorced but always come back together. But it appears that both of them having problems moving on but the better question is WHY SHOULD THEY?

Despite Sarah inability to fit into the "royal" world, and the fact that she cheated on Andrew. Its apparent that they both share a love for each other that can't seem to find with anyone else. Yes, Sarah does want to maintain a relationship with the Royal Family and Andrew works behind the scense to make sure it happens. If we are going to blame someone, why not Andrew? Why won't he leave it alone...she's not making him. Its because he cares about her. I've said it once and I've said it before... Andrew loves Sarah despite all the flaws that have been discussed in great detail. He gets it and he's okay with it. Why should they get over it? You can't help who you love. In the perfect world, he should be able to have the same relationship with Sarah that Charles and Camilla had prior to their marriage. Accepted as an official companion and not part of the royal world.
