It's his choice. It's none of our business.

I agree, that's his ex-wife and that's the mother of his children. If he want to help her in any way he can, that's his business. I would like to think I would do the samething for my ex-wife, if we were good friends.

Gee, I'm sorry I seemed to offend so many people with my question re: Sarah's finances. I thought it was a fair question since she put the info out herself that she is often broke. I just wondered how she supports herself. The picture I saw of her skiing did not show Andrew or the girls anywhere near so I had no way of knowing she was a guest of theirs.

I admire Andrew. Even though they are no longer legally married, he seems to be keeping his marriage vows. How many girlfriends has he had since they divorced? I don't know; perhaps someone can clue me.

I don't give a whit about how he spends his money. I just think that they are "life partners."

Further to Irish Eyes' post above, according to this article, all the York family are in Verbier (they normally all go together at this time of year for Andrew's birthday).

The fact that they are there with Harry and Cressida is interesting, as I think this is the first time for a while (at least since the Fake Sheik) that Sarah has been hanging about in the same place with another member of the RF who isn't Andrew or the girls.

I don't think they would be staying at the same place, but if Cressida is with Harry and also a very good friend of Beatrice and Eugenie, they must be hanging out together as a whole group quite a bit, I'd think (obviously Sarah pictured with Cressida on the article).
What do people think about that?

According to the Daily Mail Andrew rented a chalet where they all stayed.
(Sorry if this article has been posted somewhere else). Hopefully they all had a lovely time, it does seem to be a trip that the Yorks particularly enjoy. I just think Sarah would be wise not to comment (I'm sure the next time she is in the same place as reporters she will be asked about it).
A simple remark, "we had a great holiday" would equal "Exclusive, Fergie, my joy at Harry hoiday reunion" in the press. She wouldn't even have to mention his name.

Ah, so true. All the magazines and papers seem to want these days is hyped up sensationalism. Look at the discrepancy between the front page headings on the women's magazines, then at the actually content. (Not that i ever read women's mags

Back to the Yorks; i hope they had a great time and it's nice that they are able to go on holiday as a whole family.

Wonderful! So nice to see all three York ladies out supporting an important cause that's obviously very close to their hearts!

And I echoe comments above in hoping that had a fantastic holiday!

I agree, I think the the Yorks work very well together in supporting great causes. Sarah seems to work very hard for her patronages.

I don't think she has patronages any more, does she?

(I know she has certain charities but are those the same as patronages?)

Yes she is - you dont have t be a member of the BRF to be a patron.

Here is the full list from Wiki. The first one is the charity mentioned in tbhe post above.

1990, The Duchess became patron of The Teenage Cancer Trust and has since opened most of the charities various units, including those at Middlesex Hospital, University College London, St James’s University Hospital, Cardiff University Hospital and Royal Marsden Hospital

1993, The Duchess founded Children in Crisis a children’s charity focused on education and grant making to international programs. The Duchess serves as Founder and Life President.

2003, The Duchess joined the American Cancer Society at a congressional briefing. Sarah, Duchess of York, was a founding supporter of The American Cancer Society’s Great American Weigh In, an annual campaign (modelled after the Society’s Great American Smoke Out) aimed at raising awareness of the link between excess weight and cancer.

2006, The Duchess established The Sarah Ferguson Foundation based in Toronto, which derives funds from Sarah's commercial work and private donations with the aim of supporting charities internationally that serve children and families in dire need. Included under this umbrella organisation is her patronage of several British charities, including Mental Disability Rights International, the Teenage Cancer Trust,[55] Tommy's, and the Motor Neurone Disease Association
2008, The Duchess became patron of Humanitas, a charity focused on providing children with education, healthcare and family support

2010, The Duchess became a supporter of The Mullany Fund, whose aim is to support UK students wishing to study medicine or physiotherapy.

2011, The Duchess became the global ambassador for Not For Sale, a charity focused on human slavery

Yes, Sarah still have her patronages that she supports. She became patron of The Teenage Cancer Trust in 1990. She's Founder and Life President of Children in Crisis since 1993. Sarah is also patron of the Mental Disability Rights International and the Motor Neurone Disease Association. In 2008, Sarah became patron of Humanitas, a charity focused on providing children with education, healthcare and family support. In 2010, she became a supporter of The Mullany Fund, whose aim is to support UK students wishing to study medicine or physiotherapy and in 2011, Sarah became the global ambassadorfor Not For Sale, a charity focused on human slavery.

While I certainly appreciate your info, and Sarah's patronages, may I strongly object to your referring Sarah as "The Duchess".
She is not "The Duchess" anymore, since the year she came out of BRF (divorced).
"Duchess of York" is just her style, in simple words, a surname since doesnt have one (a marital one). It is not a title she enjoys anymore..

For goodness sake.

We know she isn't The Duchess anymore, it looks like the information was taken directly from Wikipedia, so whomever provided the information to Wikipedia used the Big T instead of the little T. And cepe copied and pasted the information to answer a question on what patronages Sarah supported in the past and those she continues to support now.

You are more than welcome to edit the information in Wikipedia, but I am afraid its a losing battle. This reminds me of the time when someone posted some pics of Sarah in a Current Events thread, and Getty Images referred to Sarah's title incorrectly, and the discussion it created at the time. All the member did was cut and paste what Getty called Sarah nothing more and nothing less, and you would think that Sarah, the member and Getty were in some super conspiracy to get Sarah's official title back!

The BRF doesn't claim her. The British press refers to her correctly, so do the people who follow royalty and understand the schematics of styles and titles.

What do you expect when the general public (or at least the press) refer to Kate Middleton, Camilla Parker Bowles and Sophie Rhys Jones instead of their correct titles?
