I'm all for Sarah's involvement in good causes, and I think that she's doing better than she was; but why, why, why does she come out with such statements? She veers from self-loathing to grandiose. It's two sides of the same egocentric coin, perhaps.

I think Fergie is probably a kind and generous person but oh, so self-absorbed! How many times have we seen her on TV shows talking endlessly about herself and her psyche and her problems and her past? I just wish the media would get over her and give her and us some peace!

Sarah is the one courting the press. She did the Oprah show which did not make Sarah look good at all. She is the one posing for the cameras etc. We don't see her for ages so she can be private when she wants too. It's also her who looks for things to promote which include going on tv shows etc. Sarah could step away she just doesn't want too she loves the attention when it suits her and when she can have some sort of finacial gain. I don't think she will ever change in her mind she is way more important then what she actually is.

I tend to agree with both the above posts. I do believe Sarah has worked hard for her charities over the years, but at the same time she has worked hard to promote herself - both as a person who was once married to a prince and as a business woman with all her various commercial interests.

I give her credit for trying hard and being a good mother and the fact that she and Andrew are still so close. Nonetheless, she is inconsistent sometimes - she has talked about her self doubts and problems for years and years and then says she's stronger and better now, but after a while it is back to talking about the difficulties times etc.

Beatrice and Eugenie may well have donated her to the world, but what a strange thing to say - and certainly it doesn't apply to the part of the world I live!

That link is showing an un-related article. Or are my eyes not open all the way yet?

Agreed. She seems to do well for a time and then slips back into the same old pattern of landing in trouble and then trying to redeem herself by engaging in psycho-babble followed by vowing to do better to doing better and then falling back again.

She's currently on an upswing and seems to be doing well. She looks slimmer and is engaged in some good things. I sincerely hope that she has turned a real corner this time and there won't be another crash.

I rather like Sarah and hope that she finds fulfillment.

I do not see Sarah as having worked hard for her charities at all. I wonder if they are more of a cover for her so that she can fly around the world on the charity's expense, attend parties and whatnot.

Recently in the UK news a story broke about a celebrity whom had set up a charity which received millions but less than 10% of the donations were actually used towards those in need.

I have expected a story like this to be reported on the Duchess of York for YEARS....

If you read any of the biographies written about her (w/o her consent) there is more than a few alllusions to this.....

I totally agree with you I doubt Sarah does anything without first thinking what's the upside for me. Setting up charities is the latest way to make a living it would seem by the number of celebs charities

Oh dear, I'm afraid it WAS another fashion fail. The trouble is, I think, that the sisters both like unusual patterns and designs but they don't choose outfits that suit their body types. Eugenie in particular could be seen to real advantage as she is a very pretty girl, if only she would consult a stylist. She could still have fun with her clothing but would know more about what suits her and what doesn't.

OK. This is something I've just come across and something I'd never heard before and I'm wondering just how credible this is. The article claims that HM bought a residence in 1997 for Sarah, Beatrice and Eugenie but according to the article, Sarah turned it down stating it would be too expensive to maintain.

See inside the stunning $6.1 million home the Queen bought for Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie - AOL

According to the Telegraph though, the divorce settlement was to include "£500,000 provided by the Queen for her to buy a new house for her and her children."

Duchess of York's divorce settlement was worth £3 million - Telegraph

Odd. Very Odd.
