Andrew certainly does. Yuck! He's too nice looking to have a bad hair day.

I have no idea, to tell the truth, The article doesn't state that.
I would assume Andrew drop her to hotel, if she's staying there. And since they've arrived separately, it might be possible.

She did. You can find the article, posted by Roslyn in this post.

Nobody has stated this.

As long as Sarah keeps blabbing her private life to the media and thus making it very "public" then it's only natural that people are going to respond and discuss it.

I don't see why Philip or anyone else would care whether Sarah stayed with Andrew or at Buck house. I think it's more likely Sarah that didn't want to stay on base and give up the social life in London (and of course all the toe sucking ). Why do the royal family always get accused of interfering in Sarah & Andrew's married life? It's been well documented that the Queen and Phillip made a point of staying out of their children's marital situations. Even when Chas & Diana were having their problems they allowed them to try to work things out their own way (even their affairs). It wasn't until Chas & Diana made it clear they wanted out of their marriage and things got out of control (publicly) that the Queen "allowed" them to divorce. So why should it have been any different for Andrew?
Nothing like using the Royal Family as a scapegoat!

It's amusing whenever anything controversial is brought up about Sarah her debts are always brought to the forefront. Yes she has paid off her debts. But they were her debts from her living a very extravagant, self-indulgent lifestyle and it's only right that she pay them off which btw her ex husband helped a lot by generously allowing her to live under his roof, maybe at the personal cost of his own social (dating) life.
Paying off her own debts doesn't make her a hero, it doesn't make her a saint and it doesn't make her any less tacky than she is.

What house is that? I thought he stayed at the palace when in London. Surely he wouldn't take her there, would he?

Still, that doesn't answer where he stays when in London. Neither of them are in London.r

He lives at Royal Lodge, Windsor which is only 20-30 minutes from central London.

I'm not sure what the toe sucking has to do with her early married life, but whatever. As to the other, she said in her autobiography that she'd wanted to go and live on base with Andrew and was told she couldn't. I assume that's where this information is coming from.

Mmmm, was she told she couldn't by senior naval officers, possibly worried about security on the base, did she say?

Has anyone seen the 3 bedroomed semi detached Andrew would have been eligible for at the time? Where would his or her protection officers have stayed.

I don't have a copy of the book still, but I think she said she was told by someone at the Palace. I suspect it wasn't the Queen herself who told her, but I also suspect the Palace officials wouldn't be doing this off their own bat without checking what the Queen's opinions were.

( http://www.thesun.co.uk/article/0,,2-2007000607,00.html )

You are not being stupid. Yes she stays at Royal Lodge with Andrew.

It is just outside central London and an easy commute.

Does Andrew commute between Windsor and London then whenever he has engagements in London? Does he never stay in London?

With the NI troubles and the death of his uncle by an IRA bomb in '79, security for Andrew and Sarah would have been uppermost in everyones mind I should think.

It is rather difficult to guard someone in a semi on a housing estate, very few officers, senior or junior have houses within the base. The camps really are just like large housing estates. Security would have been a nightmare, where would the protection men have slept, (there were very few women officers). It used to be hard enough for personel to get accomodation, with some on waiting lists and others taking out hirings.
Andrew would have been in officer quarters within the barracks, hardly suitable for a wife.

Perhaps someone who has the book can quote what she did say.
