Eugenie doesn't reside at the Palace but her father does. There probably are private tea parties held by family members from time to time, only the invitees don't tend to post about the private occasion on social media!

Eugenie also seems to be very friendly, last week she was spotted passing by a newly wed couple emerging from a registry office and happily posed with them.

Andrew does have his London apartment at BP and the reports are that the door still says TRH The Duke and Duchess of York. Sarah spends quite a bit of time at that apartment as well - even sometimes having afternoon tea with the Queen when they are both there on the same day and have free time in their schedule.

I suspect that this was a private party arranged by Beckham and Andrew that Beckham then made public while others who do the same thing don't publicise it realising that it is a private matter and should be kept as such.

This may even make it harder for the royals to have private events with their friends at places like BP as people see this situation as BP for hire rather than seeing it as the home of many members of the BRF who want to have their friends over for parties or other events.

I have never believed that Sarah has tea with the Queen. I never seen anything to prove to me it happens. This whole birthday party at the palace has Sarah somehow benefiting written all over it.

I'm tending to believe that Sarah does have a good relationship with the Queen. Not only at times at BP, but Sarah has also been invited to stay at Balmoral with the Queen. Just has to clear out before Philip arrives though as he's reported not to think too highly of Sarah at all.

This whole "party at the palace" for the Beckhams is just another flub that reflects badly on the Yorks. Andrew, of course with apartments at BP, does have the right to invite friends over for tea and such but his mistake was to omit warning the Beckhams from going public with it as they blatantly did. It put BP as a whole in a bad light. It put the Yorks in a bad light and also made the Beckhams look like celebrity publicity seekers. Not a good thing at all.

That tea party has Fergie written all over it!

Sure, she denies it, because there's a backlash in the press. But I don't think Andrew would have thought of it on his own and as for paying for it...really?

She couldn't have managed it without Andrew; he constantly enables her.
And her daughters love her dearly and try to ease her way, but she is such a huge liability for them and often makes them look bad.

I'd advise the York girls to distance themselves, but family is family and should stick together.

That said, Fergie would do them all a huge favor if she removed to Switzerland like she said she intended to do, and leaves them alone for a while.

(And I'm another who doesn't believe she's on great terms with the Queen. I remember quite a few negative things Fergie has said, and the Queen probably remembers too! She'd have to be a saint to overlook all that!)

I see the media put Sarah's name up, because they know who'll receive the most hate.

Folks, it was a tea party! Why are people so upset about a tea party?

Beckham had gone to extreme lengths in order to get his knighthood but ended up in disgrace. He needs new access to the royals to smoothen public opinion and what is better to have his daugther celebrate at Beckingham sorry Buckingham Palace.
Talking of disgrace, I can imagine that Fergie (or Andrew) is a more than willing helper.

I hope everyone keeps in mind- anything and everything that's held at Buckingham Palace is with The Queen's authority and permission. If there was a, TEA PARTY, event held there, she agreed to it.

I don't think it would have been presented as it was and if she did approve it doesn't mean it was a good idea. No one is denying that a tea party was held there are no ifs about it. Now they are just deciding who will take the blame. I bet the Queen and Phillip just wish she would disappear. Sarah and Andrew never learn. If David hadn't put it on his Instagram I wonder who would be next to have a princess party at the palace experience

It was a *private* tea party also at the invitation of the Yorks. The way it was portrayed in the media made it sound like the Beckhams were able to rent out Buckingham Palace like some folks can rent out places at Kensington Palace to hold events. The Queen actually had nothing to do with it. Andrew is able to invite friends over for tea in his apartments which is basically what happened here.

David Beckham may have received an order but one of the things most pointed out was that he wore it to Will and Kate's wedding and wore it incorrectly. This is the difference between royalty and celebrity. Beckham's big mistake was making this event public. He was after the publicity rather than thinking of any backlash it may cause. The Yorks were also careless.

Andrew didn't invite friends over he or Sarah threw a party for a 6 year old and her friends. It's not like posh didn't have room to have a party and she asked her bestie could she use her place. Anyway her and David have to top that birthday next year. Good luck with that

- David later was forced to clarify the event 'wasn't the palace opening the gates for Harper's birthday party'
- A family spokesman also clarified that the event was a private function organised by the Duchess of York
- However, her representative has now distanced her from organising the event and said was her ex-husband

That says it all, to me it looks as Fergie, who is desperate for attention and redemption, just as Beckham is, made it happen and both did not think about the backslash. We've been there before, what's new?
As usual it all ends in chaos and denials and the blaming game, what an embarrassment for everybody involved, yet again.

Regardless of if it was Sarah or Andrew, the fact remains that what came out of it made it seem like Buckingham Palace is "for rent" to anyone with enough money to fork over to have a "palace" party for their kid. It didn't help matters that Eugenie posed with the little girls which made her look like a "princess for hire". I'm sure that Andrew will hear about it from his mother but we'll never know about it. Either way, the Yorks were careless in not setting certain parameters for this "tea party" and making sure that as it was a private party, it should remain private.

How soon is BP being closed down for renovations? Right now I'm thinking the quicker the better.

Everybody knows that with Beckham, nothing remains private. That's the point for him and his business model after being out of job as footballer and icon.

To be honest, I'm not that familiar with the Beckhams at all as I don't follow celebrities but in this case, I do believe the blame doesn't fall on them but rather on the Yorks. If they know this guy, they know how he operates and it was a severe lack of judgement to not ensure that a private visit to the palace remained private and out of the public eye.

From what I've been reading, its been stated that the general public touring Buckingham Palace are not allowed to use their cameras and take photos while in the palace. Seeing as Andrew has lived at BP just about all his life, its a rule he should have known about and asked the Beckhams not to take photographs.

All in all it was another thing for the media to bash the Yorks about and in this case, I'd go as far as to say it was deserved. It didn't do the royal family and those that run BP any favors either.

In one sense I don't see anyone as having done anything wrong. If i was a member of the RF and could invite my friends little girl around to celebrate her birthday in Princess style would I do it? Yes of course. Likewise if I was friends with a member of the RF and had a daughter who loved being a 'Princess' and they invited us around for afternoon tea to celebrate her birthday would I accept, yes I would.

IMO I don't feel comfortable with this because I don't think the Beckhams and Yorks are that good friends that they see each other enough for it just to have come up in conversation. As such it makes you think that either the Beckhams or Yorks engineered the situation into this for their own benefit in some way (not necessarily financial).

I wouldn't be surprised if Beckham paid Fergie a lot of money to get access. Wouldn't be the first time for her to do something like that.

I think it's very important to not spread any rumors about this event. We all know everyone is worked about this tea party (I really don't know why) but I think it's very important to try to stay away from unfounded rumors about Sarah, Duchess of York, Prince Andrew and Princess Eugenie.

Sarah's past selling access to her husband means it doesn't take a lot for the media to suggest thats what has been done here.
