So she was involved and actually chose the stylist, who then was approached by Palace staff.... And as soon as he had "bagged himself two of the queen's grand-daughters" (quote from article) he informs the world about his coup. So he must have been very sure that this would not be the immediate end to his chances with the Royals.... And then the next day Richard Kay reports.... Strange coincidences, IMHO.

I feel like giving Sarah a break - she miraculously (ok ok giving her a break is not in my nature but I'm trying) went with her heart with what was best for her girls and suggested a stylist who was appreciated by royals. Bottom line: the hair of the 2 York princesses looked great. And Sarah stayed in the back, caring for her girls. That is good. I'm happy and so is Sarah!

I highlighted the 2 items above, because in my mind a 'royal aide' is not the same as 'palace staff.' I don't believe Sarah has access to palace staff these days, or to any staff associated w/ any royal except employees of her ex, who would be aides to a royal (Andrew) for all we know she could have had Andrew's secretary give Pryce a ring. In any event, I doubt he'll ever touch Catherine's hair again since the Cambridges abhor tattle tales and he's been braying from the rooftops, IMO. Sarah has always been an attention seeker, so I doubt she's troubled by Pryce announcing he'd done her daughters hair.

Found this article about the dissolution of Sarah's charity in the US - raised over $500,000, gave $22,000 in charitable grants, according to tax documents. Article doesn't mention what happened to the lion's share of the money raised - expenses, salaries?

Here's another article, which @ least suggests that some of the money may have been spent on charity in other years, although it's unclear.

That does not sound good or add up. But then it's Sarah and it's not the first of her charities too fold.

Pryce is in a dilemma though; he needs name clients to open his own place. Yet these are the people who expect him to remain discreet.

As for the charity, that is the trouble with many of them, most of the money goes to pay administrative costs.

Sarah is apparently in Thailand recovering from surgery which is why she missed Eugenie's graduation. Not sure if her surgery also took place in Thailand (why Thailand over the UK?) or what she was operated on for.

IIRC she is friends with or has a biz relationship with someone in Thailand that has a 5 star resort/spa... perhaps that is where she went to recover. (she has run away there before.... details are fuzzy, but I'm sure someone will chime in with more info)

I would think that if one is recovering from surgery, the last thing they would want to do (and get doctor's approval for) is travel to another country to recuperate. This got me curious so I let my fingers tickle Google "Thailand popular surgeries" and up pops quite a few links for plastic surgery. Seems it is quite popular to head to Thailand for all your beauty updating procedures these days.

This is only a supposition but what the heck. Sarah is single, growing older and if she can afford it.. why not?

Sorry, but I think this is another lapse in Sarah's judgement -- who misses their daughter's college graduation to go to Thailand for surgery? Unless it was life-saving surgery ... there are just no excuses. Sad :(

But it would've been better to have that type of surgery after the graduation. I don't know many parents who would miss an important mile stone in their child's life for something as mundane as that.

Ack... mentioning the popularity of plastic surgery in Thailand was just an off the wall supposition of mine and has NO basis in any kind of reality as far as Sarah is concerned. We don't even know where she did have the surgery of any kind.

I just would think it odd to travel so extensively to recoup from surgery as it would probably be very uncomfortable. I know if it was me, I'd want to be close to home with family available should I need them. I don't have any clue of how it works in the UK, but wouldn't Sarah have some form of medical insurance (or NHS coverage) for any kind of necessary surgery? Here in the US though, most medical plans do not cover elective surgeries and it would be totally out of pocket.

She could have been in Thailand and expecting to return to Britain for the graduation when something happened that required surgery and is thus there recuperating.

I do think that sometimes people jump to the most negative conclusion rather than looking for a positive explanation.

Many universities also only allow two tickets for a graduation - Beatrice only had her mum and dad but not her sister - so it may have been a family decision that Eugenie would have her dad and sister so Sarah was able to schedule something else.

The Express report also says 'illness' not 'operation' - that comes from Richard Palmer.

There we have it folks. The voice of sane reasoning.

I did get a little carried away there didn't I? Whatever happened, if we're supposed to know, we'll be told soon enough.

well said Osipi and Ilivbertie. If you want something to really chew over have a look at my post on the Duke of York current events thread.

We'll know when we see her.
It's a fallacy that you can't tell when someone has had plastic surgery; it's quite obvious.

Well, if she did have plastic surgery, good for her and for anyone who can do that. A discreet nip and tuck is fine as long as it's not overly done, as is the case with Bruce Jenner, Joan Rivers, Priscilla Presley et al.

I wonder if the Thais and the Turks have a mutual extradition treaty. If they do this would be a good chance to nab her while she is recovering and less likely to flee.
