Frankly this adds fuel to the fire. Not only does it contain numerous typos, but these rumours have been going around for years and he supposedly chooses now to release a statement quashing the rumours. It's silly, and slightly attention seeking. I'm surprised The Queen allowed this.

I must say, it seems the Princesses have taken a page more from their grandmother than their parents when it comes to commenting on anything other than the focus of the event to which they were invited. Kudos to them for knowing when to keep their mouths shut. But I can't help being curious if they feel that their parents runaway comments are merited...or embarassing.

Typical Sarah, from the article:
"On Friday, Sarah said: 'Both the Duke and myself, we could not be more proud of this moment because these are two girls that work so hard in their own careers, have taken time off today to spread the word of teen cancer, which is so important, and then go back to work.'"
She goes on to brag about what great parents her daughters had, true or not, it's tacky for her to brag about herself like that.
Then she purports to speak for Andrew - the man can speak for himself & doesn't need his ex throwing his name into the mix.
Finally she makes ridiculous statements that these girls have 'worked so hard' on their careers and they took time off from work to attend, while probably true about Eugenie, it's obvious that Beatrice has made a career of flitting about, job to job with lengthy unemployed stints between employment, frequently visiting foreign destinations, in just the past month she's been documented in New York with her mother and the mid east 'unofficially' with her father. Sarah's just adding fuel to the fire w/ her easily disproved claims about Beatrice.
I sometimes wonder if Sarah believes if you repeat a lie often enough people will forget the truth.

No mention of the engagement rumors surrounding Euegine.

Glad he's setting the record straight though.

Wow, I thought Sarah's lawsuit for £25million over the fake sheikh was an embraasment... Now we are right back on top toe sucking form. It defies believe (and makes a mockery of charity work) for beatrice and eugenie to turn up at an event launching them as patrons of a charity and for their mother to turn it into an event all about them. How wonderful are her daughters, how wonderful she and Andrew are as parents, look at us the perfect royals. Well I'm sorry but this is cheap pr stunt, where was the talk about what the girls wanted to achieve as patrons, where was the hard hitting fact based speech highlighting why cancer for teenagers is so terrible and what this chairty does to help them? Oh wait, let's be honest this wasn't about charity this was about the girls getting points for turning up and their mother having a dig at the media in what amounted to her own personal press conference. I'd love to have heard Prince Philip's reaction to this... Honestly the best thing the York's could do it to find a way to keep Sarah from doing anything like this again. As for the statement from Andrew, its so poorly written i can only imagine he wrote it in a huff and sent it out, possibly without consulting the BP communication dept.

Duke of York issues extraordinary personal denial of rift with Prince Charles over royal status of Beatrice and Eugenie

Here we go.

I'm so over this family. They can't stop reminding us all that they are princess's and how wonderful they are. They do some work for charity we should be so thankful !!
Why does anyone even bother with Fergie ? Is Anne's first husband in the news giving statements etc etc ?

i would take that family instead of those who can't stop whining about how difficult and the worse thing in the world to have a title (spoiler alert it isn't ) .

you think they bother with fergie! princess diana died 20 years ago and they still drag her name in every article that is remotely related to any royals .

there is people who see whatever prince henry and william do isn't bad or stepping on the wrong foot because of their mother and see whatever the york princesses do is wrong and bad because of their mother .

for the first time i can't critic sarah for being proud of her daughters any parents would proud of their children and Brag About Their Kids .

prince harry made a fuss and released a statement because the paparazzi are following the girl he is dating who were a public figure and an actress before she started dating him but sarah is out of line when she is urging the media to stop criticizing her daughters for every single thing they do or say no matter if it is good or not they always find a way to critic them .

The thing is you have to draw a line somewhere. We have seen in the United States if you dont deny something it will just fester. Heard of the birther movement and associated frivolous lawsuits as well as pizzagate that has nearly lead to gun violence due to internet rumors about a politician. The current news about the duke of york asking for titles is just a variant on the same old theme of wanting roles for his daughters. Logically does that make any sense due to the fact that they run in titles circles but have never dated anyone with a title. These rumors about what prince Andrew wants for the girls have been around since 2008 I have used google to look. Only this time 8 years later has he given a statement on this subject --- that is 8 whole years since that has started and it had never died. Everyone even assumes its true without knowing anything. Eugenie does she live in Kensington place? Maybe she does or maybe not but everyone assumes its true because some sleazy rag said so. DM readers also repeat the lies in comments that Andrew demanded his daughter be princesses. It takes all of a minute to search why they are princesses but people still repeat the same old lies for no reason. I guess they are poorly educated I dont know. But practice discernment in what you read and where you read it from

I think what I come away with mostly when reading about Sarah or anything she's saying or doing is that she very much comes across as if, even though she is divorced, she is still very much The Duchess of York. Even on Twitter it seems that she's @SarahTheDuchess.

I get that they're a close family and a united family as far as divorced parents go but sometimes I feel Sarah just cannot let go of her royal status even one little bit and that is what is important to her.

I have never heard anyone tell people what a wonderful mother she is more than Sarah. And her daughters are princess's don't forget. Oh and she's still a duchess and don't you forget her and Andrew still love each other.
Also still best buddies with the Queen etc.
Just that little problem of money but there is usually someone to help out.

so you would prefer the other scenario " i'm still diana , princess of wales my children are princes and my son is going to be the king but i don't wont my husband to be the king he never loved me he cheated on me with another woman while we were married we now almost hate each other his family never accepted me they are trying to obstacle me while i'm trying to help charities " would that make you and the press consider her the divine angel that they portray diana as ?!

I There are parts of that statement that don't even make any sense, it just comes across as a badly written rant. He also loves writing 'the princesses' and 'as gradaughters of the Queen' just incase any of us had forgotten. I dread to think what Charles will make of this. I think he will be livid that his name is being brought up in this statement as I don't think for one second he's been consulted before it's gone out.

I think Andrew did the right thing. This has been building for weeks - stories about his daughters from anonymous sources; splits in the BRf etc etc. ALL believed not because we know they are true but because he isn't popular. And the media when they cant attack him directly take it out on his children. That's the truth of it.

There is absolutely no evidence for any of these stories. There is no evidence for the reduction of the BRF - it is interpretation of information and that doesn't mean its true.

We don't se the impact these stories have on the girls - he does. And all I'm seeing is a man defending his daughters.

And don't just look at Andrew - in the past few months William and Harry have also issued statements. BRF have had enough of it and they now have direct access to the public.

Changing times

Clarence house is a different matter. I totally believe that Charles will not be happy about this. Also what proof can you ever show in regards to any press stories? Things are only ever truly proved or disproved through time. It will be the same with this story. When Charles is King we'll see then if these reports about him and Andrew have been true or not. I'd personally go for the former.

Which parts don't make sense? It all makes sense to me.

Why would Charles be unhappy?

People will either think that he knew nothing about it so no problem for him

And if he did know about it then he is confirming there is no breach - what's wrong with that?
