It WAS the 80s. We ALL had "big hair" a la "Dynasty" and "Dallas". I know I certainly did!

I had big hair but I never put a bow or flags etc in it. It just looked odd on a woman of 26 it did then and it really became more of a joke. I think just about every woman had a perm in those days and highlights!

We used to wear big bows, those lace headscarves like Madonna and huge scrunchies in our ponytails not to mention the Alice bands that we hip 1980s mums wore.

Well as a 20 something in the 80s I can categorically state that I never wore anything like that nor do I remember anyone wearing anything like that.

I agree.
Eugenie's boyfriend Jack looks like he found those jeans in a dumpster! If he must wear jeans to a nice restaurant, he should get a pair that fit well.

(Wonder why Dave Clark was MIA?)

Dave was probably at work, weekday an all. As for Jack's jeans, I see nothing wrong with a pair of straight legged jeans. They look fine on him.

Maybe Dave was planning a private romantic event for Beatrice when she got home from going out with her mother and sister.

Why get into criticising a private person. This is a royal forum - stick with the public/royal people.

Sometimes we need to think that maybe we are part of the problem with intrusion

When you are going out with a Royal you are fair game, IMO.

The jeans aren't very stylish, but I'm more concerned about the pink and blue socks and brown suede moccasins.

colourful socks seem to be quite common among guys in England, at least upper classes ones.

I like mocasins but I'm not liking to see them in this case

NO! he is not "fair game" That is really an awful comment. She is a junior royal with no formal duties at all; for goodness sake, surely they merit a break.

They're rolled up, and rolled badly. They sag and bag, and don't fit properly.
We'll have to agree to disagree; I don't think he looks fine at all.

As for criticizing private people, we criticize Chelsy, and Cressida, and Pippa. I don't see the difference.

There are reports on twitter and some showbiz sites that the Yorks (not sure about Beatrice) have been spotted in Verbier with Prince Harry and Cressida.


Niraj Tanna@IkonPictures
The royal party included Prince Harry, Cressida Bonas, Princess Eugiene, The Duke and Duchess of York. All seemed very happy. #verbier

Maybe we should re-examine that behaviour, rather than criticize people through whom we are living vicariously? Just playing 'Devil's Advocate'.

Further to Irish Eyes' post above, according to this article, all the York family are in Verbier (they normally all go together at this time of year for Andrew's birthday).

The fact that they are there with Harry and Cressida is interesting, as I think this is the first time for a while (at least since the Fake Sheik) that Sarah has been hanging about in the same place with another member of the RF who isn't Andrew or the girls.

I don't think they would be staying at the same place, but if Cressida is with Harry and also a very good friend of Beatrice and Eugenie, they must be hanging out together as a whole group quite a bit, I'd think (obviously Sarah pictured with Cressida on the article).
What do people think about that?

According to the Daily Mail Andrew rented a chalet where they all stayed.
(Sorry if this article has been posted somewhere else). Hopefully they all had a lovely time, it does seem to be a trip that the Yorks particularly enjoy. I just think Sarah would be wise not to comment (I'm sure the next time she is in the same place as reporters she will be asked about it).
A simple remark, "we had a great holiday" would equal "Exclusive, Fergie, my joy at Harry hoiday reunion" in the press. She wouldn't even have to mention his name.

Ah, so true. All the magazines and papers seem to want these days is hyped up sensationalism. Look at the discrepancy between the front page headings on the women's magazines, then at the actually content. (Not that i ever read women's mags

Back to the Yorks; i hope they had a great time and it's nice that they are able to go on holiday as a whole family.

Wonderful! So nice to see all three York ladies out supporting an important cause that's obviously very close to their hearts!

And I echoe comments above in hoping that had a fantastic holiday!
