a lot of people didnt like sarah becuz she didnt fit what a princess looked like while diana did. sarah was a down to earth person and i love her for that and thats why andrew fell in love with her. if andrew wasnt the duke of york and the son of the queen i think they would still be married now, they would have worked everything out.

Hm, I don 't know. Anne is a down-to-earth person, IMHO while Sarah is a bit too undisciplined in her tastes and behaviour. I believe she doesn't ponder her actions much in advance on doing something and so out of impulsiveness and due to her character, she often makes the wrong choices. Well, lately she seems to have herself more under control but still IMHO she does make a lot of faux pas like the interview she gave about Beatrice and the bikini-issue. But all that of course does not make her unlovable. She is rather likeable, I believe she is honest to a faultand a reliable friend, but she seems to be magically called to dropping clangers.

I think every mother would want to stick up for their children, but was it a wise choice lashing out at the media though.

I think the duchess is just an impulsive woman, who has made a few mistakes in her life, and has paid dearly for them.

I admire Sarah for sticking up for her daughter but she wasn´t very wise and should have thought before she spoke. I didn´t like the way she brought up that Beatrice had had learning difficulties and was dyslexic, I had had no idea of this before and I am sure that many people had never heard this either. I think it was unecessary. If she has overcome these difficulties then good for her but I don´t think it was kind of her mother to blurt them out to the media.

Actually, it's fairly common knowledge that both Beatrice and Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden are dyslexic. Both are very proud of having been able to cope with the condition, and thrived academicaly in spite of it.

Fergie, Duchess Of York: Journalist Fights Back In Princess Row |Sky News|Health

Quote:
The journalist accuses the Duchess of whipping up a publicity storm to plug her ITV show The Duchess In Hull in which Sarah is seen trying to re-educate a working-class family with unhealthy eating habits.
Allison Pearson is not impressed and says she refuses to take part in a slanging match that will "generate even more publicity for this world-class attention seeker".

I especially liked the comments following the Sky News article. Gee, I thought we were the only ones doubled over with laughter while reading the D---- Mail!

I read this article today and found it very interesting. It made me laugh when she said that Marie Antoinette said "let them eat cake" (really brioche if she ever said this at all) whereas Sarah said "let them eat cabbage". She didn´t really say this but the sense of what she said boiled down to that.....
Oh dear, boiled cabbage!

Well clearly not everyone was in favor of Ms Pearson's article. It was buried almost immediately the same day it was posted and there were only 7 comments allowed. The DM also posted a poll asking if Ms. Pearson was correct in criticizing Beatrice in such a manner and the majority disagreed with her.

Ouch! Although, I can't say that my opinon of Sarah is all that steallar either. Just when you think she's managed to get herself out of the media, up she pops again. And not always, and most often not, in the most respectful of ways.

never be polite to the devil it wil only call again

i am a chef and boiled cabbage if done properly is gorgeous but then my family is Irish Do it right they love it ,everyone, miss by fraction you will be cursed maybe that is what you were trying to say. the expectation upon a person is reflective of the reaction. I never felt that Sarah understood the British expectation of royalty but attempted in her own way to live up to them. She has kept mum about the details of her life then to a unbelievable degree. Those who think she is a money hungry bitch how much could she have got giving the dirt??????? She dropped the HRH without the court or queens decree and moved her life outside the UK . Play the hand you are given or leave the game!!!!!!!!!! She has played the only cards she had and god love her has played them well. If she had whimpered off to bankruptcy it would have suited the tabloids better!!!!!!!!!! Could anyone out there have done it better given her situation?????????? Speak up people but remember WE ARE ALL GENERALS AFTER THE BATTLE.

Now if HM gave that tiara as a personal gift to Sarah then it would be Sarah's regardless of what became of her marriage to the Duke of York. And she could do with it as she pleased; pass it on to one of her daughters, give it away, sell it. I guess the question is How was the tiara given to Sarah?
legally if the tiara was given to Sarah Duchess of York it is hers. IF it was given to the Duchess of York it is owned by the title itself. that is the legal opinion at least of a QC. It may be yet tested in court.

so the mail article wasn't so much in response to setting right the so called "lies" that sarah told so much as it was their turn to lash out. now that they've all had their say, why don't they all let it go??

I still wonder if they'll make it to King and Queen, though. QEII seems to be plotting for her grandson, William, to succeed her.

As far as Andrew, yes I hope he finds someone who makes him happy and that happiness probably would have to mean that that woman can fit into royal life and be acceptable to his family. Is that so hard? Prince Frederik has done it in Mary and Prince William has shown taste and judgement in at least choosing a girlfriend.
Have these women lowered the standards or changed them??? I Personally dont like several of them but If they change the perception that a person must marry without love I am in favour of their influence.
