Huh? I saw pictures of the Queen lined up with Camillas dad/children and William and Harry.... Was she only there for the formal pictures and not the actual wedding? (sorry I know wrong thread but...)

Maybe for Eugenie's 21st either her or her parents or possibly even the Quern said no we can't throw a huge expensive party in this climate with the recession, the scandals and the wedding less then a month away-? Just a guess.... But I'm surprised to not have at least a small event....

We are getting off topic....

The Queen's presence at the wedding of Charles & Camilla, what Eugenie does to celebrate her 21st birthday has nothing to do with Sarah's Current Events.

Thank you very much, Iceflower, for taking the time to browse the picture agencies for new Royal pics. I only wish you could find once in a while a pic of Sarah and/or her daughters leaving a museum or attending a vernissage or a concert. If they existed, I guess you'd find them - but then we had no pics of Catherine and her parents going to the ballet with Camilla, which seems to show that there is simply no interest of the media to cover such places in the evening. They obviously prefer to stand in front of in-places like bars and restaurants.

Celebrities know where to go when they want to be photographed. There are all sorts of restaurants in London that the media does not hang out at. Obviously Sarah wanted her picture taken with her two daughters.

Why would Sarah want her pictures taken with her daughters? Are you saying that Sarah is seeking publicity? Do you have anything to substantiate such a comment?

Standing outside a bar/restuarant...maybe they were standing outside because they were either arriving, leaving or waiting for their car?

I mean the paparazzi is so fierce in certain parts of the London, NYC, LA, Paris, etc.....and really, anyone can sell a photo nowadays and make a quick couple of thousands of dollars?

Quite right. It's quite easy to know when the "private photos" are a set up because they don't complain about their privacy being invaded. Staying in the public eye is key and being photographed leaving a bar/restaurant is as good a way t do it as possible for someone who is so disliked. It's not a shopping spree and they're not liquored up. Get the shots, move on.

Maybe Harry's bar is there favourite restaurant. They shouldn't avoid places just because the press hang out there. Hey, all these pictures can go in the family album.

A set-up? Then does Prince Andrew also want to cultivate publicity? Because he has also been photographed on several occasions leaving the same restaurant (Harry's Bar).

kakieanne made a comment and I pointed out examples of how celebs pull that trick. Sarah's post divorce life has been about keeping herself in the spotlight, Andrews isn't. There's a difference.

Remarkable. In that first picture, Beatrice has the look of the Princess Royal. I'd not seen that resemblance before.

I think that the staff of Harry's Bar are very loyal. I can't remember any reports of overheard conversations or anything like that. Perhaps that's another reason why celebrities like to go there.

Harry's Bar is a very very expensive establishment in Mayfair. Given all the negative publicity in recent months, I do believe there is a reasonably strong argument for these 3 to stay from expensive restaurants and bars, other than for charity related events.

Whilst there can always be arguments to the contrary, Catherine has very clearly demosntrated in the last few years that it is very possible to dissappear from public view if you so choose to.

Why should they disappear? The majority of the press that has been created about them is nonsense. The press are always going to hound the York girls and Sarah, they should not let that ruin their lives.

Whilst I agree that often the York girls are criticised in the press for no reason, this is a very different situation. Sarah has recently very nearly been bankrupt, and has embarrassed herself very publicly. The press did not make that up, Sarah is the only one to blame for the public spectacle that followed. Flashing her daughters inheritance by regularly dining out at expensive establishments is really not going to do any good.

I also don't think its fair to say that she is flashing her daughter's inheirtance by going to an expensive restuarant.

So because Sarah had money problem she can never go to a restuarant where the average meal is above a certain figure? Who's to say that her daughter's paid for the meal? She supposedly made some money from that Oprah show and goodness knows what else.

Is that how Sarah is going to be judged for now on....she had money problems so she can never be seen doing anything (shopping, on vacation, buying anything over a certain figure) that involves money?

I mean, its that realistic? She should just eat at middle income places?

I think Sarah will be judged by the mosaic of her life. Much of that mosaic is comprised of poor judgement, of which the money "problems" are part and parcel. It's especially true because Sarah repeats her money problems again and again. And now it has an added focus, because she has been getting her money fix from dubious or shady sources.

So yes. There will always be questions about where Sarah obtains her money and how it is being spent. Is it fair? Maybe, maybe not - but it's reality. Is it fair that she receives thousands of dollars in fees to speak at a single function whereas teachers get paid pittances which are begrudged them, either? I think not - but it's reality.

She placed the topic into play. So it's a fair topic.

The only people who are interested in Sarah are people who frequent this and other royal boards and the press. Of course, it's fair that she receives thousands of dollars for her speaking engagements. She's the one who speaks, it is a job. You cannot compare apples (Sarah) and oranges (teachers).

Personnally I do not believe that sarah is worth thousands of $ for a speech. What can she be an example for - a good one?

i read the book written by diana's housekeeper. in there she said the royals would get most items and services at a really good discount. some as much as 90%. so now i have to wonder, how much did she REALLY pay?

Good point; I've heard that the RF is usually comped for drinks and meals, for example.

There are some family members (like William) who insist on paying, but many do not.

(Catherine also seems the sort who pays her way; I read that the store where she bought her sapphire Issa dress tried to give it to her, but she insisted on paying).
