Perhaps the reality of her situation has caught up with her. This is something that Prince Andrew can't help her with.

Maybe she is just said because she has had to cancel a free trip to Turkey for some sun and spa treatments, lol.

Others involved in this situation should share in the burden but they're going after Sarah as the high-profile name for now. And this is taking an obvious toll on her, by the looks of those photos.

Sarah has always had enough spunk to find a way to rise like the Phoenix. But when the Oprah documentary didn't open doors and her book failed to sell, I think that she lost some of the fight in her. And now this....she looks like she has given up. I'd be very concerned if I was her family.

Oh dear, that picture is really sad. And such varying interpretations here.

Her life certainly has a roller coaster quality to it.

Yes, Sarah certainly "lives large." No matter how we might feel about Sarah's various adventures, it must be a terribly stressful thing knowing that a country wants one's extradition.

Her family? Yes. The BRF in general is probably chuckling quietly to themselves at the idea that Fergie might not have the energy to get herself into any trouble for the foreseeable future. Now I'm far from a Fergie apologist but the timing of this is rather strange, this could've been done any time in the last three years but only now, in a Jubilee year, but far away enough from the actual celebration, does it pop up.

Things move more slowly in Ankara? I would not be surprised. Also, by waiting this length of time, the Turkish government asserts its own sovereignty but doesn't appear to be stomping its feet.

It is, after all, up to individual nations to control many things about what goes on inside of them. Turkish law is...Byzantine (so are the laws in my own adopted State of California - maybe the whole U.S. at this point).

It's something of a victimless crime, is it not?

I the general idea was that Sarah had done a good thing? Why should she be worried? Is she really in danger of extradion? And if it did happen, wouldn't it bring more attention to the issue which Turkey is embarrassed about?

She is in very real danger if she is extradited there to be spending the next 22+ years in prison - simply so that the Turkish government can make a point - that they will protect their laws and borders - forget about protecting and caring for their own children so long as they can make a political point on the international stage.

It is designed to embarass the BRF, Britain and the EU.

Yea, in this particular case, I think Sarah did a good thing. It might have been foolhardy, but it was brave.

I think she should actually get a bit of credit for that.

Well for the many posters about the Duchess of York you will have work for years, every 3 months something happened to her.

It's as though Turkey waited until after their State Visit to the UK was over. It would have been very awkward for Sarah to have been charged by Turkey and then have the State Visit, considering the President dropping in on her ex-mother-in-law.

Yes, which I think is why Turkey has spectacularly misfired on this. Turkey ends up looking petty, and the world is reminded of those orphanages. Bad move.

But is it a bad more? I don't know what people are like where you live Mermaid1962, but I live in Western Canada and the few people who even know about the arrest warrant...don't care. Sarah Ferguson is just not on their radar screen. They are not thinking about the orphanages...they are talking about the latest cold spell, the outrageous behavior of that boat captain, etc.

I'm thinking of Turkey's stated desire to become part of the European Union. Turkey's actions re Sarah can be interpreted as their wanting to cover up their barbaric orphanages rather than their desire to protect the privacy of the children.

Timing is interesting.

Sarah is looking pretty run-down but if she didn't want to be seen in that condition, she wouldn't have been. I did notice the nice Birkin bag in a to-die-for- blue on her lap in the car, so times are still pleasant enough for her.

When I saw pics of her in the black wig, I thought hmmmm....not a bad alternative for her (from her orphanage excursion in Turkey.)
