Bella, CNN carried a lot of the articles. I am trying to find their stories but I'm having a bit of trouble. You can look on cnn.com

Sarah might not be to everyone's taste (including mine, usually), but I do believe that she has a kind heart. Some of her impulsive nature comes out in impulsive kindness--and who could possibly fault her for that?

Thank you, Russophile! It's just so tragic! I can't imagine how their families must feel.

I agree w Mermaid that Sarah has a kind heart. I've always thought she was very genuine about alot of things.

Thanks, as alwys, giov, for another link!

I never thought Sarah had a mean bone in her body. She is too impulsive and strong willed at the same time to make a good royal wife. But as a human being I am sure she is quite kind.
That tragedy of the young couple coupled with the loss of the little girl in Portugal and the disappearance of the student from Alabama in Aruba, highlight how sometimes a vacation can turn into tragedy. What a pity.

Both Sarah and Princess Eugenie look really good in this photo. Red suits them both.

Sarah certainly have a very wide circle of friends. The red gowns set off the copper tones in both ladies' hair colour. I don't recall seeing Eugenie in such bright coloured outfits before. It's a good colour on her.

Great picture! I like the red lipstick on Eugenie as well.

I am afraid I am going to have to disagree. I think they both looked terrible, especially Sarah. Her hair was a mess 9didn't look like she had had it done), too much cleavage (who wants to see saggy boobs!) and the dress was just too loud for her. I know red is a very difficult to wear well, especially if you are not in the first flushes of youth, but this really did not work for Sarah. She really did end up looking pretty rough, just not classy!

Sarah looks reasonably well, altough I don't like her fascination with low-cuts. But Eugenie... With that red lipstick, she looks way older then she is. And it doesn't suit her. She's such a pretty girl - why spoil it all painting your face like a clown?

I'm not fond of Sarah's low-cuts either, but I thought that it was a picture of a mother and daughter looking close and happy together. And Eugenie was covered up, which I also appreciated.

I did appreciate Eugenie's covered up outfit as well - kind of rare for Sarah's daughter to wear such "modest" outfits.
And it was a nice picture of a mother and daughter as well. Nevertheless, I found Eugenie's make up just way too much - that red lipstick just ruins every other impression from the picture.

I have to agree with you, amandamrgt! It made for a nice picture but it did nothing for me as far as the way they looked. Sarah will just never get it, will she? She is getting Old and she continues to overlook that fact. I am totally fed up with her bosoms and stringy hair, and her silly outfits! Eugenie is the beauty in the family, without a doubt. Hopefully she will not take after her mother or her older sister with their fashion sense. (Or lack thereof!)

Fully agree with you. Sarah and Beatrice have both a difficult relationship with their sense of dress, lets hope E escapes it!

I actually thought they looked good, it's just that Sarah needs to take more care with her make up and hair. She seems to be very hit or miss and since she's in the public eye all the time, she needs, IMO, to be hit all the time!!

The girls have nice faces--but ungainly shapes. I guess like their mother they will fight weight but apparently are doing so. The DoY really doesn't seem to care about herself much--hair, makeup, grooming--but she goes out looking like that and apparently doesn't think a thing about it. I'm more self-conscious---and vain.

Everyone has good and bad days, not to mention how one sees in the mirror are different from how others perceive them. Given that Sarah appears neat and tidy in all the photos I've seem, I'd say she cares about personal grooming as much as most ordinary people. She may not be a high maintenance type, but she is a working woman who travels a lot and seems to try to be there for her girls. IMO, it's a bit harsh to demand Sarah to look smashing all the time.

Going back for a moment to the red outfits on Sarah and Beatrice: I liked the color on both of them however their dresses should have been reversed. Beatrice should have worn the lower cut one with arms bare and Sarah, if she had class and taste would have covered up more. I don't mind her hair long--but can't she have it appear groomed? Can you imagine having Sarah as your mother and trying to decide how to dress? Eugenie does better I think, and Beatrice often looks frumpy--like her mom.

It's safe for me to say this as they will never meet me or hear of me or know me. :)

This may be a little ugly of me but I was a single, working mother and it took a lot of effort to keep myself looking neat but I think I did.

If I had a team of people looking after the kids, cooking for me, dressing me and available to do my hair, etc. I think I could handle it. An array of servants would have made my life in a virtual palatial home bearable. Not to mention first class travel and plenty of advisors for everything. I don't think she's had to sweat anything except how to get out of having a photo of her toes being sucked in newspapers.

That's a lot of assumption on how many and what type of staff she actually has.

Technically, it was the arch of her foot being kissed, not the toe getting sucked. It was easier to make a headline out of toe than arch. And isn't that ancient history? God knows what each of us has in our past what wouldn't, shouldn't, be dragged out at every turn.
