Thanks a lot for posting the pics, Avalon, the only thing I'm still a bit confused about is: What exactly did she do there???!!

And Skydragon, it was worth a try but I have to say as well that her outfit wasn't that perfect, well, that golden coat was spunky but together with her hairdo it all went a bit wrong

while i like sarah, i have to agree here. "iconic" is a term that being thrown around as much as "hero".

All I can say is there are about 6 women on the planet who look good in those long sweater coat things, and Sarah isnt one of them. My sister, who is an absolute stick, has one of those and she looks like a lumpy carpet in it!

It's almost reminiscent of King Henry VIII's robe as he stands for his official portrait.

Who are we to criticize the fashion choices of an icon? (LOL)

Sarah had Beatrice and Eugenie with her at Hearts & Hooves, and the princesses were featured picking up accidents. Now, that's the glamorous part of being a princess!

Rosie O'Donnell told Sarah Ferguson on The View that she had stopped talking to a close friend because she was sending her 13 year old son to boarding school in the fall. Sarah replied that boarding school previded a secure and stable environment for children to learn and grow. Rosie's response was, why even have children if you plan to send them off to boarding school. Sarah said that in the UK boys start boarding school at the age of 7. Sarah said that her daughters have attended boarding school since the age of 13, she can go visit her girls every day at school if she wants to see them. Rosie said she did not like the idea of boarding school because the children are not at home with there families and are being raised by strangers in a strange place.

Interesting that Rosie was so against boarding school. At the least, Andrew and Sarah would have had nannies (again, non-family members) playing major roles in raising the children, so what's the real difference?

At least Andrew waited until the girls were in highschool before sending them to boarding school.

How sad to fall out with someone because they are not living their life as you want them to! Most boarding schools offer more than state schools or home education, to most children.

Exactly, but most people are unable/unwilling to admit that their child was bought up with the help of the nanny.

What is a nanny? All I know is that they look after your kids.

The one thing that I found odd, is when Sarah said she sent one girl to an all girls school, while the other one went to a co-ed school, both as full boarders.

My thought was, that had Andrew and Sarah remained married, their schedule would have been full of royal duties, with plenty of trips abroad.

As single parents, especially with Sarah travelling for her various enterprises, childcare would have been difficult without help (a nanny or some sort of regular minder).

It's my understanding that the girls went to different schools because they had different interests.
