Prince Andrew hosted a very special tea on Monday to benefit a cause that has brought his family together in the spirit of charity.

In 2012, Andrew visited India as part of the celebrations for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee. While there, he met Aloka Mitra, founder of the Women's Interlink Foundation (WIF) in Kolkata, West Bengal.

Andrew learned that the foundation helps victims of human trafficking and domestic abuse by helping them learn a trade. One of the skills they are taught is how to make silk garments.

The prince was so moved by the group's efforts that he immediately called his ex-wife, Sarah "Fergie" Ferguson.

The Duke himself took that picture, using a timer I believe. It was taken at Balmoral.

This is an annual event for the York woman as a result of the 11th September events and Sarah's closeness to some of the people who were caught up in that disaster.

Did you read the caption for their photograph? "Beatrice Ferguson, Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York, and Eugenie Ferguson". Prince Philip would be apoplectic if he read that, and Andrew wouldn't be much better.

Is it possible that in NY the girls are actually using their mother's maiden name as their surname rather than York or Mountbatten-Windsor? Just a thought.

Getty made a mistake in labeling their names.

Beatrice looks more like her normal self but still a tad different. She looks perhaps like she may have lost some wight? Not sure.

The three look healthy, happy and well.

It's possible, I suppose, but I consider it highly unlikely, unless they've had a major blue with their father that we don't know about.

Sounds like a scene from that trashy American TV show, The Royals.

Seriously, members of the royal family are expected to show some decorum. That kind of decadent partying doesn't happen very often in other royal houses, does it ?

That just sounds trashy and childish for a 25 year old to dress up as disney characters my six year old niece had the same party without the 7 dwarfs following her around which is just beyond tacky and tasteless. The Yorks sure do know how to waste money don't they it would of cost them or should I say Andrew a fortune. How is affording to live this lifestyle?

I must admit that what shocked me about that party, was the attendance of the" dwarfs" (sorry, I wish I could know a less offensive word)...

No words, if I think those people were paid to entertain the whole circus... I wonde why the accepted that in the first place!

One term I've heard often is "little people" and that seems to be the politically correct terms these days.

Actually, I think the 7 little people were hired through an entertainment company. This is probably what they do for a living and to be honest, $100 each per hour is pretty good pay if you ask me.

So if somebody is lucky to be tall, he can work as an actor or entertainer. If somebody is shorter he can't be an actor or entertainer, it's unacceptable. Nice!

This is what they do as a living. I think I read somewhere that one of them, at least, worked as one of the goblins in Harry Potter (or they had the same agent as the actor who played Griphook). They may be 'shorter than average' but they are trying to make the most of what they have been dealt and that means playing roles such as 'dwarfs', 'elves', 'goblins' in movies, on stage, and at parties etc.
