I thought Sarah's face looked different too, but I couldn't pinpoint what it was. I thought maybe she was wearing more makeup than usual, plus I think Sarah's face has changed in the last couple of years due to aging.

As for being less expressive, part of that seemed to be her approach to this interview. She seemed calmer than usual to me.

Part of me thinks that Sarah went on at such length about her feelings for Andrew for the benefit of people in the palace who don't want her with him. Kind of like her way of saying, "You can keep me out of the palace, but you can't keep me away from him." Especially since I recently saw her on the Today Show where she said it "wasn't too late" (to get back together with Andrew) but she didn't think "they want the redhead back in the palace."

Yes she's never been very discreet.

Cool

As long as Prince Philip is alive, Sarah won't be marrying Andrew even if they both want to. Philip wouldn't stand for it.

I think Sarah just ate to much the day before or the same day, that is why her face looks so blown up (i speak from experience, ha ha). Because there are pics from her after the interview in which her face looks like usual.

I saw that in the paper also! This article from the UK Telegraph has a few quotes from Alice herself. I wonder if it will be a church wedding? perhaps at the village church in Dummer? Who knows! It's sad her father isn't here to give her away, perhaps her brother Andrew (not the Prince) might do it. BTW that photo isn't recent- it was taken when she was in her late teens.

Well, standards have been changed from what they were in the 'old days'. If the POW is allowed to marry a woman with as much baggage as Camilla then why shouldn't Andrew and Sarah reconsile seriously?

One reason is that they don't appear to actually want to do so.
Philip is supposed to be the reason but is that really the case or more the fact that Sarah and Andrew enjoy being a couple without the additional stuff that goes along with being royal whereas Camilla has embraced that to be with the man she loves Sarah prefers to do her own thing rather than live in the gold fish bowl again.
She has the best of both worlds - a man who loves her and her children without the additional responsibilities that being a royal wife has.

Cool

In Sarah's case, if the story is true, the Prince was especially outraged at Sarah's behaviour with the infamous topless pictures with her boyfriend. The Prince felt she humiliated the entire Royal Family especially his son Andrew which is a normal parent's reaction. We know that the Prince is not shy about his feelings and expressing them. There was a story circulating a couple of years ago that when Sarah was invited to Sandringham for Christmas, she wore out her welcome by "giving unwanted advice to the Queen and Prince Philip." Don't know if it is true.
The Queen and Philip weren't happy about Camilla either, but Charles was firm that she was to be by his side and be his wife. They were not faithful to either's mate, but as far as I know there were never any pictures of them during their long affair and certainly not to the extent of Sarah's. I'm only going to say she used poor judgement as all of us have at some point in our lives.

I think if Andrew went to his family and said she's non negotiable as CHarles did, they could remarry. But I dont think she wants the white hot glare of the spotlight. Though once William and Harry marry, the focus will be well off Sarah and Andrew.

I don't want to get too much into Charles and Camilla in the Sarah thread, but Charles and Camilla did have the private details of their relationship leaked to the public--through the Camillagate tapes. I think the difference, though, is that members of the royal family could argue that Charles and Camilla's privacy was invaded after they'd made every reasonable effort at discretion. I think that Sarah's privacy was invaded in exactly the same illegitimate way when those topless pictures were taken; but in fairness, the pictures weren't an isolated incident. Sarah was pretty much a walking media disaster in the late 80s/early 90s. Camilla, who never made a fuss and a quietly supported Charles behind the scenes, must have seemed like a jewel by comparison.

I think the big difference is that Camilla was willing to play by the rules of a royal mistress, and Sarah at that time (egged on by Diana) had completely lost patience with palace rules.

I do think that Sarah loves her freedom, but based on some recent interviews I've seen with her, she seems to be changing. This quote stood out to me when I read it (it's from an interview in Parade posted here a while back): "I think I’ve just recently understood that I could have had the royal life that I loved and my freedom, too,” she says. Leaning forward, she quietly adds, “I was too young to know that I could have had both.”

And then she says, "the Queen knows from me that I would have lived that part of my life differently if I had known what I know now,” she says. “I’m 50 years old, and I only caught on when I was 49."

To me it sounds like Sarah has a newfound respect for "the rules" after helping produce the Young Victoria--it sounds like she realizes she didn't have to leave the palace in order to be herself: she just had to learn to choose her battles. That's why I still would not put it past Sarah to return to the royal family if she had the chance. She never sounds (to me) like she is totally content with her freedom--more like she is always living with regrets.

Sarah reminds me of Lucille Ball[redhead] and Andrew of Desi Arnaz & their love story.Sarah is Andrew's Lucy. These two will never be apart. I think timing was against them. I hope Sarah makes loads of money from the movie "The Young Victoria."

I think that it's a size too small. Other than that, it would probably look very good on her.

It think it suites her very well. And also, it is just a diner date not a gala evening.
