I saw just the headline of the Daily Mail article before I opened it and it was, "Sarah Duchess of York to marry Findus boss" or something like that, and I thought, "What, is this true?" I thought if it were this would be one of the first pieces of royal news to really surprise me.

Of course I've heard enough from around this forum to be skeptical of the Daily Mail and of course the headline was misleading, the article just quoted some unnamed "friend" who believed this Mr. Frantzen wanted to marry Sarah...

But actually when I saw that headline I realized how totally surprised I'd be if Sarah actually remarried someone other than Andrew. I don't actually think Sarah is "in love" with Andrew now exactly, but I don't think we'll ever see her married to anyone other than him.

I also think that while Sarah would do a lot of crazy things to maintain her lifestyle, she wouldn't marry for financial reasons. She's much too emotional for that. Also, I can see her having serious romantic relationships, but I can't see her marrying even a serious boyfriend. In fact, I believe she said in an interview several years ago that she isn't interested in remarriage.

I read that there will be a sequel to Sarah's "Duchess in Hull" reality show to be aired around Christmas--she'll check up on the family she visited. I don't live in Britain, though, so I could be wrong about this.

Sarah's going to find it more difficult to earn money as time passes, I think. Especially since a whole new generation of royals, including her own daughters, is taking over media attention...even in the U.S. I think once William marries people are going to be a lot more interested in him and Harry than in someone who was a member of the BRF fairly briefly back in the 80s.

Plus, it's true that women are perceived more negatively as they age than men, especially if you frequent the kind of Hollywood circles Sarah seems to like.

My feelings about Sarah vary--on the one hand, I like her "spunk" as a woman; on the other hand, I wish she were more careful about how she portrays herself. She's an interesting character, to say the least
Janet, there was another book that had that in it besides "Blood Feud" Is that correct? I've forgotten the title, it's over on the "Socialties" thread.
I think it was called, "Fergie and Me" or "The Duchess and me" written by the buddy of Johnny Bryant.
I think Sarah fell in love with Andrew AFTER all the crud happened. I think she loved him, certainly, but fell IN LOVE when the proverbial stuff hit the fan when he showed that he would stand by her.
Doesn't she hit 50 this year?

A touch premature! She was born 15 October 1959, so currently she's 48.

i don't know if she's started yet but she is scheduled to do a speaking tour. she'll be speaking in my hometown in september. the tour is called "my road to an authentic life". i'm not sure that she's representing weight watchers anymore is she?

I'm searching their site. I see they are calling her a "LifeTime Member" but I don't know if that means she's on their payroll.
Here's some, actually quite good, tips from her.

Those were very good tips from the Duchess. And she didn't mention the Royal Family once.

I suppose she has high speaking fees when asked to participate in any event.
I do not know about Weight Watchers, she looks like she is getting a bit round again. I have not seen her in any of their ads in a long time.

After being a member for over a stretch of time, one becomes a life long member. This is how they can get help and support to get back on the wagon if they fall off.

I've found out that the picture in the link I've posted yesterday
has been taken on August 7. At the moment Sarah and her girls
are in Sotogrande, Spain, they've visited a polo match on August 24:

Sarah, Sarah, Sarah tsk tsk, with all the money you have why on earth don't you do something with that straggly hair??? IMO, I think she woul look good with a blunt cut just touching her shoulders and bangs. She always seems to look so scruffy like she just go out of bed.

Oh give them a break! They are out there trying to stay healthy. It really annoys me when people are judged on such a superficial level.
I think Sarah and the girls are in a total no-win situation. Even if they were both poster girls for "heroin chic" and snorting rows, the only thing people would moan about would be their fashion sense and the size of their thighs!

Too true. If Sarah and Beatrice were not jogging, people would say "Why don't they exercise?". Since when does one need to look glamorous while working out?

Great pics, Ice!! Eugenie is a very pretty girl. Sarah needs to stay out of the sun (I hope she uses sun screen!). I wish B would wear something more flattering to her figure.

I think that Beatrice looks exactly like Andrew only with gorgeous red hair.
