You really have a point there !

I think (IF) Andrew & Sarah want to get re-married, I think no one should get in their way and allow them to get married again. I doubt it would be a big wedding anyway. Probably a civil ceremony and blessing. Somewhere along the lines of Charles & Camilla's wedding.
And it's Andrew (re)marrying his spouse. Not someone altogether different with a tangled history. He would be reuniting his family. The church doesnt approve of divorce and the Queen is head of the church. The church would be more than happy to facilitate on this wedding. Though personally, I think the invitation to Balmoral may have been about the daughter's wedding.

Quite right, as far as we know Sarah only cheated with single men as opposed to Camilla, who herself was married to a notorious womanizer/cheat and Diana who had a couple of married lovers.
These rumors of possible remarriage sprang up a few years ago when Sarah did her Oprah series (saving Sarah) and died down when Andrew showed up @ Ascot w/ a date on his arm. Perhaps they have grown closer in the interim. Not sure what the point would be in remarriage, especially for Andrew, @ least as things are now he can protect his assets for his daughters rather than risking Sarah running through his inheritance. Plus they already live together and seem great friends, so why bother w/ remarriage? Is there some advantage that I can't think of?

Cannot see any advantage for Andrew. For Sarah of course it would mean getting her HRH back, no more whining about not being invited to a wedding or other big royal event, and of course easier access to Andrews cash.

The daughters' inheritances could be protected by a trust. The Church would approve of the marriage, which would be an advantage to Andrew in at least SOME remaining circles, and they would not need to remarry in a civil ceremony if they did not want to. They could be remarried at Windsor with a small group present, or some even smaller church if they liked, and the blessing would be part of the ceremony, not separated from the actual wedding as it was in the case of Charles and Camilla. The big trouble is whatever is unknown, for life throws zingers at people, and they would have to take seriously "for better or for worse." And assume that "worse" would play a part in their future, as it does in most people's lives. It would be very nice for them to attend Beatrice's wedding as a couple...a really great relief. So advantages all around.

The advantages are they would be able to be husband and wife again. They would be able to go on official engagements together and on official tours abroad. Andrew have been doing his official duties alone for a longtime now and I'm sure he would like to have a companion to accompany him again. Even Prince Charles have publically remarked how good it feels to have someone there with him on official duties and it makes a difference.

Also if they re-married, Andrew & Sarah would be able to go out and about with each other as a real couple again. Not walking ahead of one another but together.

Who knows what lies ahead for them but I do feel bad for Andrew though. He has to sit and watch his niece, nephews and siblings enjoy happy relationships and marriages and share their royal roles together, all while he's on his own and no longer have Sarah or anyone else beside him officially.

I say, let the man marry his ex-wife, if he wishes to do so.

All Sarah did was cheat with single men? Really, that makes it all better. Let's not forget she was carrying Andrews child during one of these "relationships" and somehow I don't think that would have given great comfort to Andrew. Would Sarah go back into Royal Duties? She didn't exactly endear herself last time around her work ethic and her behaviour was pretty bad. I don't trust Sarah and it will be interesting to see if anything actually happens or this is just someone fishing to get an idea how people would feel about it. I don't think the public is ready to welcome Sarah back in the fold she is living in a Royal house and has a lifestyle most people would love without any of the responsibilities. Really she and Andrew have the best of both worlds. I don't think them getting married would work any better the second time around to be honest. Underneath it all I just don't think Sarah has changed all that much. Andrew also has a lot more control now then he would if they did marry especially with the finances.

She is currently getting the perks, without the responsibilities. Why change the current arrangement? For HRH? Look where it got her the first go round. I think they know exactly what they are doing.

That's exactly what I think! Be together but don't marry, I can see them divorcing again.

A denial has been issued by Sarah's spokesperson: Sarah Ferguson and Prince Andrew are not rekindling romance - hellomagazine.com

So who floated the original story and why?

Andrew & Sarah continue to keep everyone on their toes and left wondering what they will do. They pretty much never rule anything in or out.

That's simple - speculation by the press. After they saw Sarah at Balmoral.

Probably the same people who made up the story about the Middletons having their own suite of rooms at KP. Its the silly season, fairly quiet on the royal front and so speculation becomes news.

Very true, there's a lot of speculations around when the royals are on holiday and the news and pictures are very slow. It happens year after year.

Beatrice will probably be announcing her engagement soon. Sarah was probably invited to Balmoral by the Queen to start removing some of the awkwardness. They can spend some time together now, and it won't be such a big deal at Beatrice's wedding. Otherwise the whole "Sarah back in the presence of the Royals" could overshadow B's day.

I've often had the thought that single young royal cousins will not be asked to be full time royals until (if ever) they get married. I just have always supposed that the firm wants to know what they are getting into, rather than being surprised (again) when a FT royal dates someone really out of bounds (Koo Stark comes to mind - though I am not trying to point a finger at Andrew - it could also be someone who cannot be discreet and needs to sound out on political issues, sometime with an arrest record, drug issues, etc. ).
I just have always thought they were smart to not go all in when a young single could fall in love with someone that is too outre'.

I would be surprised if Andrew and Sarah remarried. They can be a couple, live together (as they do!), she can accompany him on some family events and some of the lower profile engagements. If they remarry, she will have to choose between the jet set life she has led (Elton, Naomi Campbell, David Tang) for the mundane and hard working life of a relatively minor royal. Would she be prepared to make that sacrifice? Is she not better off continuing with the way things are, and enjoying the best of both worlds. At the moment, there are no expectations of her, no work responsibilities, and she is not answerable to anybody (other than herself, her daughters, and Andrew).

I'm not sure about that. The original article was written by Joe Little, Managing Editor of "Majesty Magazine." Their writers don't usually go out on a limb and indulge in gossip. That's why I think that the source for the article was well-placed.

I always with Andrew & Sarah well in whatever they do. Stay together, remarry each other or move on, I just hope they will be happy regardless. I respect they have managed to remain very close and have kept their family together.

I agree it's worth noting that "Majesty" is far from a gossip magazine.
I'm not reading too much into comments from Sarah's spokesperson either way. I think even IF the rumours are true, a lot would have to be sorted behind the scenes before they could confirm anything officially.
If as someone suggested they were testing to see what media/public reaction would be to a reunion, I think they would have been surprised by the amount of goodwill expressed. What has me curious is the report of them spending much of the winter in Verbier. What was all that about?
They like to keep us guessing, and I don't think they will put us in the picture any time soon.

The Church of England could use some increased popularity. If the royals patronize it by having weddings instead of long living-togethers, the C of E might go up a few notches in respect by the people. Do you realize what the percentage of those attending C of E services is? I believe it's in the single digits, low single digits. The people are probably irritated with its mamby pamby view on such things as long livings-together rather than marriage. The C of E used to be so strict it would not marry ANY divorced couple (if there were annulments I am not aware of them, but they may have occurred). Some great English novels are based on the tension of lovers not able to marry because of the C of E's strict attitude toward divorce; this has even figured prominently in Downton Abbey. I am NOT (heaven's no) encouraging a return to former stern rules, just saying the average bear would like some sort of standards?
So the D and D of York would not be the only ones getting some neat publicity if they remarry; the very Church they would wed in would get some good moves. Just my opinion...I'm not even in England. Over here in the US of A the Church has become a supine memorial figure languishing atop the tomb it will soon be interred in...JMO!
