Sarah was always seen as a hoyden, more used to running around the stables than a demure young woman. If she didn't know how to behave when she married, there was, IMO, very little hope of her changing. HM takes a lot of criticism for not being more hands on, apart from the stock 'that is not how it's done in the aristocratic or royal classes', she has always been incredibly busy representing the country. If her own parents couldn't tutor her, it would have been a lot to ask a mother in law to do.

Forgive my ignorance, Sky, but who/what is Sinitta? I'm in the dark here.

I think she is a he. . .

Murphy's Mom, I suggest you read "My Story" By Sarah Ferguson. You can find it at any local library. The "Men in Grey" tried to teach her the proper protocol but if you don't listen. . . .

But can anyone tell me who this gorgeous woman is with Sarah and her daughter?
According to the small print down the right-hand side of the photo, it's Kelly Rowland, whoever that might be.

Well, say about Sarah whatever you want, but she certainly has been busy those last few weeks!! (maybe the old bankaccount needs an injection for Christmas??)

Infant obesity??! I agree one's never too young to develop healthy eating habits but I didn't know there was even such a thing. Yes, Sarah has been busy.

Infant obesity has been a problem in the USA for at least the past 10 years. Primarily due to overfeeding, rewarding a crying infant with food (especially something they like) teaches them (even at an early age) that food is there for comfort. It can become a vicious cycle that can continue into adulthood.

Perhaps you would be kind enough to share the information on how much she is making from these appearances. I haven't been able to find it anywhere.

I would like to know this too. One would hope nothing, or at least no profit to herself.

Hey, I was just kidding!! But since she is no longer a Royal or a very famous celebrity, it's utterly possible that she doesn't do this things for free. It's not like her children's books are selling millions and millions of copies is it?!

There is a difference between paid public speaking engagements and the appearances for charities and benefits that she supports. Yes, Sarah has to earn a living as a private citizen, but that need is not mutually exclusive from an interest in charitable work. The booking agent she uses for her public appearances also includes such clients as Maya Angelou and Buzz Aldrin, so it is not as if a public speaker cannot also have a social conscience in their offtime.

Has anyone seen Sarah's velvet cloak in the new Avon catalogue? Someone said they saw her pic somewhere (I can't seem to find anything) and that she made reference to a relative being given a cloak for loyalty to the The Crown - years ago - and now she is selling or endorsing some sort of throw through Avon. I'm sure one of you can track this down - if it's indeed true. Thanks.
