Yeah, look at Christie Brinkley and Billy Joel.

I would hope that Sarah wouldn't be allowed anywhere near Sandringham and Balmoral.
Holidays are suppose to get you away from the places you see on a day to day basis.
Everyone has a holiday abroad, nothing wrong with it.

The Queen and DoE don't holiday abroad. They holiday at their family's holiday homes - Balmoral and Sandringham.

Just a little bit harsh Lumutqueen IMO, but sure we are all very entitled to our opinion. I think Sandringham and Balmoral has a lot of bittersweet memories for them anyhow.
They have always been very consistent about having a family holiday, and I'm sure they will all be anxious that doesn't change this year.

Sarah was only permitted back to Balmoral once since being banished from there mid-vacation after her adultery was shown in living color on the front page; that once was in the very recent past.

Andrew and the girls have always been welcome there without her and many is the year that they have gone without her, happily enjoying Scotland.

We will know soon if she has permanently worn out her welcome there, as I imagine that she has. Why should the Queen spoil her and her family's own holiday by having Sarah underfoot?

To have her along is to invite along all the baggage that she carries, dragging the cartload of bad behaviour that follows her like a miasma. Better she continue to mooch off her celebrity friends and continue her summer-long holiday away from Balmoral.

Oh gosh, you really aren't a fan.

Of course Sarah's behaviour in the early 90's was dreadful, no arguments there.
The points I would make are:-
(1) Could any man including Andrew be so forgiving if every story/rumour written about her was true?
(2) Andrew has been brillant to her since the divorce, but he did put both his navy career and his royal duties before his wife during their marriage.
No woman would find that easy, his wife should have come first at least some of the time.
(3) Post divorce, up until the recent scandal did she do a whole lot wrong?

Yeah definately it's nice Andrew gets time on his own with the girls in Scotland, but they have had many a happy holiday with her also.

Anyway just my thoughts, they mightn't be worth much

Good grief! It was an official event with 300 people attending! What a misleading title for this article. It sounds like he and the Libyan had a cozy private tete-a-tete from the headline.

God forbid the Daily Mail let anything like the facts get in the way of a good story.

This is an increase of more than 20% on last year.Of those, nearly 550 engagements were in his capacity as The UK’s Special Representative for International Trade and Investment, in addition to his other Royal, Military and Patronage duties.

No Sarah in Scotland. Andrew's birthday is up soon as well - I'll bake a nice cupcake for him.

Andrew's birthday was in February.
This trip is a family celebration for Andrew's 50th and Anne's 60th which is on the 14th because I don't think Philip celebrated with Sarah and the girls back in Feb.

I was thinking the same but isn't Beatrice's birthday on the 8th and I doubt Sarah will miss that, and I'm sure she won't be too welcome in Scotland.

Oh, so the cupcake has to be frozen until then? No, no....I'll eat it. Sheesh. The sacrifices I must make for the DoY.

She has before, many a time. Sarah was not welcome at Balmoral for many August birthdays before this one, and she's not welcome now.

Most years Andrew and the girls would stay south until at least after Beatrice's birthday and I see no reason why they would stay at Balmoral if it means Beatrice's mother can't be with her daughter on her daughter's birthday. Not even the most hard-hearted person would expect that.

As they have already celebrated Anne's birthday on the cruise there is no reason for them to stay at Balmoral just to be with her on that day - she is an aunt afterall.

Given a choice between my mother on my birthday or my aunt on hers guess who would win. These people are flesh and bone and blood is thicker than water.

Peter and Zara would, I hope be with their mother for her birthday but the rest of the family, siblings and neices and nephews - not necessarily. If the official 60th birthday celebration was on the actual day then yes I would expect them there but not when that birthday has already been celebrated.

Correct.
Generally they holiday in reverse order. That is, the girls holiday in Europe with their parents before they go on to Balmoral- normally mid-August. Once or twice in recent years Sarah invitation to Balmoral has come because Beatrice would have been celebrating her birthday.

This year with the cruise occurring they would have had to simply rearrange their dates. I've just read Prince Andrew has been spotted in Sardinia so it is more than likely the girls are somewhere in Europe too now.

Sardinia with a mystery brunette.

Also says his house was raided whilst on the cruise.
And rather annoyingly they refer to Sarah as The Duchess.
