The British Court has only 3 titled Princesses , Eugenie, Beatrice and Louise.
It is a shame to see how badly they are dressed; surely their mother's taste.

What about The Princess Anne - the Queen's daughter and Princess Alexandra - a male line granddaughter of a monarch namely George V? She is as much a titled Princess as Beatrice, Eugenie and Louise.

Those entitled to use HRH Prince are - Philip, Charles, Andrew, Edward, William, Harry, James?, Richard of Gloucester, Edward of Kent and Michael of Kent.
Those entitle to use HRH Princess are - Anne, Beatrice, Eugenie, Louise? and Alexandra.

The 1917 LPs clearly say children of the monarch and male line grandchildren of the monarch. All of the above, except Philip who was granted the Prince title by separate LPs in 1957, meet that criteria. James and Louise don't use it with the approval of the Queen and I for one respect both their parents' and the will of the monarch and thus don't normally include them in these lists as that is not the way they are titled and I believe that the parents and the monarch's stated views on this take priority over other's opinions.

Iluvberte , I wrote about the new generation . I know quite well for the Princess Royal and Princess Alexandra. Perhaps I am wrong for Louise ?
Reason more that the only entitled daughters of the Duke of York should be dressed at least as RHH.
At royal evenings events they should be there with their father and not always to charities evenings , I am sure Fergie is paid for coming..

If you only meant the new generation then you should have said so rather than saying "The British Court has only 3 titled Princesses , Eugenie, Beatrice and Louise."

The Queen has let it be known that she approves the fact that Louise and James are not using the HRH Prince/Princess style and there are some who interpret that as having the same effect as a LPs.

As the Yorks live with both their parents I see no reason why they shouldn't attend events with their mother and/or their father.

They do attend things with their father but as they are the major royal functions the Yorks tend to be overlooked with The Queen and Prince of Wales in attendance while the charity events are ones they get greater publicity for attending as they are usually the only royals there.

I've been thinking the same thing! Actually I think Eugenie looks equally like both parents, now, but when she was younger, I only saw Andrew in her.

BTW, Pic number 3 from the girls leaving Annabel's shows not only Eugenie but also her Aunt, Sarah's elder sister Jane Ferguson.
I think you're right! Sharp eyes. Isn't her last name Luedecke (not sure of the spelling) now, though?

It used to be Luedecke but Jane reverted to her maiden name of Ferguson when she divorced her second husband about 5 years ago. Occasionally the British press still use Luedecke whereas here in Sydney she is always called Jane Ferguson.

Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York, speaks at a UN press conference to
brief the press on the current situation in Chile and need for aid following
the massive 8.8 earthquake that struck the central part of the country
of Chile on Feb 27, 2010.
The press conference took place at the United Nations on March 5, 2010
in New York City.

Why does Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York speak at a UN press conference? Does she have a job with the UN?

She is heavily involved in a charity called 'Children in Crisis' and it may very well have been related to that situation that she was asked to address the UN press conference. As I understand it the situation was simply a press conference given at the UN but the people who were asked to speak aren't necessarily associated directly with the UN but the UN can call in spokespeople from agencies that have expertise in the area being discussed and Sarah, due to her association with the aforementioned charity would be one such person.

Sarah was at the UN press conference partly to announce that she would be sending a team of wealthy donors to Chile later in the month, and partly to announce an internet networking initiative for mothers that she's been planning. (From these two articles):

Well I beg to differ with the Duchess calling Diana her "best friend". Currently reading Donald Spoto's "Diana: The Last Year" and that year they were decidedly estranged. Sarah had just gotten busted for the Johnny Bryan affair and it came to light in the sessions she had with an occultist she was rather bed-hopping and jealous of Diana calling her "Blondie" in a derogatory way. Doesn't sound like "best friends" to me.
I am also wondering how many times does one "re-invent" themselves??
