Sarah's half-sisters, although blonde, look a great deal like the Major--especially around the eyebrows.

He's owns a frozen food company called Findus. You can do a Google search on him.
I hope she marries him.

Thanks! That would be weird though if she remarries him, many are still hoping for a remarriage between Fergie & P. Andrew.

I'd be really shocked if either Sarah or Andrew remarries, honestly. For one -- and this isn't meant as criticism -- I think she'd be reluctant to give up the use of the moniker "Sarah, Duchess of York." She's very identified with that name, and I don't think she'd want to lose it.

Also, a spokesperson for Geir Frantzen said a while ago that he had a "long-term partner" back home in Norway. I think Sarah said the same thing in an interview, so I can't see Sarah marrying him. She says she isn't able to find a partner, but sometimes I wonder if she deliberately only sees men she knows won't marry her. I'm not even sure Sarah's relationship with Geir is romantic, or if they're just friends. I remember when Count Gaddo della Gherardesca was called her boyfriend, yet I think he was separated but not divorced from his wife. And when he was asked about his relationship with Sarah, he gave some cryptic comment such as, "we're friends with a deep connection."

Sarah was on The Today Show yesterday (Friday) for a segment they've been running called Duchess for a Day. She goes out and interviews people who should be honored for community activities and then brings them back to the studio for special rewards. Haven't seen the other segments but it was interesting.

I am sorry I missed that. There has been nothing said about it in the papers here in Michigan or on the News, for that matter. It would have been interesting to see Sarah; although I have to confess that I rarely get up that early to watch TV. :-( Thank you for the head's up on Sarah, iowabelle. (I would have gotten up early to see Sarah...)

Uses her title to the MAX. She would have to recreate herself.

Way too many "We's", imo. Well said, ada. I think I will pass on getting up early to see anymore...

from the article-

She's now on my payroll, a mum of three, with a criminal record for assaulting another mum. Like her, I've made mistakes. I wanted to give her another chance.'
No Sarah, not quite the same. She doesn't appear to have any idea of reality for many of these people. She wants to try helping out at CAB or any of the advice centers that really help those who are in need!

I really admire her. The Duchess is helping people in a way she's comfortable with. And if she's helping her profile at the same time then good for her!

I would assume that the goal is for these people to start to reinvest some pride into their community and manage the project themselves. That was the vision behind her previous project in Hull and I would assume that the Duchess has located an area where any investment has failed in the past due to the attitudes and lifestyles of residents.
I got the impression from the article that the Duchess works with residents desperate for change and empowers them to make those changes.
