This is the first time i've seen Sarahs coat of arms, where does it come from? Does any of it have any meaning?

Maybe one of the reasone the girls have consistently spent Christmas with the Queen and Andrew is that for the rest of the year the girls have mostly spent their time with Sarah so Andrew gets them on holidays.As for most of the extended royal family spending Xmas day with the queen ,I think it will be interesting to see what William and Catherine do after they are married.Catherine has a family that are not divorced so spending alternate Xmasses with them is quite feasible.

I've read for the first time about her coat of arms in Kitty Kelly's book "The British Royal Family".I don't remember for sure the meaning,but it was something like"There won't be happiness without unhappiness or sorrow"

According to Wikipedia:

The arms were granted to her father, Ronald Ferguson. She bears them on a lozenge.
The motto is ex adversis felicitas crescit (from adversity grows happiness).

I saw a clip of Sarah on Oprah's new network, OWN this morning. She was talking about her upcoming "Finding Sarah" show. Looks like it might be interesting. In her own words, she'll be "hanging out the dirty laundry".

I hope not! Surely there must be an end of this constant "dirty laundry" ??
It's never too late for Sarah to acquire some propriety and style.....

I'm sure that it will be quite an interesting thing to watch and it is a good way for Sarah to actively make some inroads into resolving her past debts but I am really questioning just what will be the outcome of "Finding Sarah".

Is it to be a documentary for our entertainment, to get the entire scoop of the foibles of Sarah? Is it a window where we sit in on actual 'therapy" that Sarah goes through? Will it actually have a positive impact on both the audience and Sarah herself? I feel somewhat ill at ease at the idea of ever taking seriously someone that wants me to believe that going into therapy in front of a national audience is the "real" thing and makes me wonder what will be more important... the therapy or the income generated from this. The downside I think to this program will be the definite line drawn separating Sarah, Duchess of York from Sarah Ferguson, reality celebrity.

I really do not expect a large audience for this show. I will probably watch it as unlike most Americans, I do have an interest in British royalty. All in all, I think that Sarah airing her problems on national TV ranks right up there with Lisa Rinna having her infamous lips reduced on TV Land's "Harry Loves Lisa".

Nor do I.
Sarah once generated a great deal of interest, but only while she was married to Andrew.
At this point, it's a case of what will it take to get this woman to go away?
The show may do all right until the wedding, but after that, I foresee a ratings crash.

I just wish there was some way of cleaning this "dirty laundry." Unless it's metaphorically sprinkled with detergent and left out in a rainstorm, I can't see what good it does re-airing it now and then.

Had I been in the cafe, I would not have recognized her. Although thin, she looks awful.

Because she is not thin by her complexion and it makes her look a bit ill,she hasn't the proportions of a slim woman

That is very interesting as I am sure we all thought that she ceased to be a member of the family on her divorce but this is an official site from the UK government so presumably she has some royal status - due to being the mother of the Queen's granddaughters no doubt. Diana of course was given royal family status on divorce so maybe - despite what everyone thought - it was given to both of them but just never made public with regard to Sarah or have the girls fought for their mother and had that status returned to her?

I wonder if that status will remain once Charles is King?

I wouldn't be surprised if her haggard look is for the show. Oprah loves the whole haggard to wonderful thing.

Ah yes, the power of a makeover.

That list of royal family members is a list of persons whose names and images can't be trademarked, according to this document. I'm not sure it has any other significance.
