My friend Nancy went to see Sarah's discussion in Des Moines. She said it was very interesting. From the way she described it, Sarah seems like a person who is very eager to please, and she's obviously very high energy. (The talk was sold-out, by the way.)

Hi, everybody! The weather's a bit better so I'm back today.

This week, CNN Asia's show called TalkAsia has the Duchess of York as its guest.

Here is the transcipt of the interview : http://www.cnn.com/2006/WORLD/asiapcf/01/27/talkasia.duchess.script/index.html


some of her quotes :

Quote:

I think I'm Irish, and I have red hair, and Andrew still calls me the hurricane. And I think I do believe very strongly, when I feel that I want to get a word out. Hence the reason why I think that I'm very proud to be able to do my job. Because, to be able to speak on a public stage with a passion, you've got to speak it from the heart. And yes, when I married Andrew, I married with my heart. I didn't, he happened to be a prince, but I married my man, and I married a sailor, and a prince, and you know, but I married with my heart. And I think that's why I'm so proud to be on the public stage, speaking for children now, because I'm speaking from here.
Quote:

I think the secret to be a mum is to give quality. You can spend all day with your children, but be on the mobile telephone, watching tele, and speaking to five other people and not, you can ignore your child. Beatrice and Eugenie and I have such amazingly strong bonds that when we are together, no one else exists. I mean, I flew from, where did I come from, I can't even remember, I flew from Los Angeles to London to Hong Kong. Well, you know, most normal people would go Los Angeles/Hong Kong. You know, it's kind of on the way. Back to London, I just wanted to give Beatrice a hug. She needed it, so I went London for a hug, and I took her out of school, and I went and bought here a toasted cheese sandwich in the local tea shop. And, you know what, we had two hours together, and I promise you, she said 'mum, it's been the best time I've had in years,' because in that two hours we were in a tea shop, laughing. She was able to, I turned everything off, no telephones, and she was able to say 'Mummy, these are my problems, this is what I need, what do you think of this.' Dealt with. (LH: Amazing) That's what it's about, isn't it? (LH: That is, that is.) And I think Andrew and I uphold family unity, we both believe in co-parenting, he is absolutely, 100% behind me in every way, and I with him. And we actually are the happiest divorced couple in the world. And we live in the same house. And when the girls arrive from school, we all live together, you know.
Quote:

There's many things I would like to do, yes, and there's many places I want to visit. The most important thing I want to do is I want to get up to the Tibetan Plateau (?) in China to see how those greenhouses are going for the children up there that really have no chance of getting fresh fruits or vegetables during when the winter hits. I want to go to Kashmir and see if I can help rebuild the situation, because in two or three weeks time that cold and that bad weather is going to hit those children that have been hit by an earthquake already. Those are the kinds of things that I want to achieve. I want to really make a difference through the eyes and voices, with children, because it's my passion. I don't know, it's just in me, and now I've embraced it, it took me a long time to embrace it, because to really do it, you've got to really do it. And you do kick and scream against it for a bit, because you think, no, okay. But then you suddenly go, no, you know what, I'm determined and I can do it. And my children have said they will share their mum. So, you know, my girls now have their mum, but they know that sometimes during the year they have to share their mum.

I'm confused. A few years ago it was reported that Sarah had moved out of Sunninghill to a house of her own "just up the road." Recently Andrew has moved into Royal Lodge at Windsor, formerly the Queen Mother's Windsor residence. Does Sarah's statement mean that when in the UK she is based at Windsor with Andrew?

purple_platinum 01-29-2006 12:16 PM

yes, i read that news too. i thought she has another house.
anyhow, does she still based in Britain, or does she now live in US? what city?

branchg 01-29-2006 01:08 PM

She does have her own house, but she also has her own suite of rooms in Royal Lodge with the permission of the Queen.

madalx2 01-29-2006 05:23 PM

When did the Queen give her permission? I heard that she said "no" during the Christmas Holiday. I guess Andrew does not want to re-marry. Can you emagine Andrew inviting a woman back to HIS HOUSE, "oh don't mined her she's just my ex-wife."???????

Martine 01-30-2006 12:13 PM

yeh i heard that the queen had said 'no' to Sarah living in Royal Lodge. I think she is probably staying there anyway (in an unofficial way) when she is england, cause she has no house in engeland at the moment, she spoke of buying an appartment in ny too

madalx2 01-30-2006 06:10 PM

It was reported near the end of 2005 that Sarah did get a new apartment in NY and that Andrew and Sarah were apartment hunting for Beatrice for her gap year.

iowabelle 01-30-2006 07:48 PM

The Duchess told Tony Danza that she had purchased an apartment in New York. I noticed that he was calling her the "Duchess of New York"!

Here is a link to the Good Morning America Website. They have a 4 minute video with Sarah and 2 ladies that lost weight with Weight Watchers.

Sorry I couldn't post a direct link to the video. :(

:mad: GRRRRR!!!! grrrrrrr! grrrrrr :mad: Sarah wants her cake and she wants to eat it all! How convenient to mention Andrew in US interviews and let everyone guessing whether or not their living arrangements are «marital» or not. They are when she needs his status to promote herself and they are not when she feels like having fun with another man in Argentina or vacation places. I feel that she is taking advantage of Andrew again. By keeping publicly a family image with him she makes sure that no other woman can be in his life - and she has to do that because her main asset is her relation with Andrew. She does a lot of stuff to avoid having to explain to American TV hosts why another woman is HRH The Duchess of York while she would be Sarah, Duchess of York. Grrrrr grrr grrrr

Lady Marmalade 01-31-2006 07:56 PM

I still think the woman rocks. She has shown such class and has paid her debt...in full.

She is a modern woman who has never publicly said anything against the royals and is indeed a true lady.

Princess BellyFlop I agree with you. It's like she is using Andrew. In one interview she says that she does not want to be a part of the Royal Family and then in another she wants to send time with them (ie. she was upset that she was not invited to Charles' wedding). Like Prince Phillip reportedly told her "either you're in or you're out...". I totally understand wanting to be with her girls and raise them with Andrew (each parent supporting the other). Demi Moore and Bruce Wills are America's version of the happiest divorced couple. Bruce moved across the street to stay close to their children. I hope that some day Andrew can look at himself in a mirror and forgive himself. He did the best he could with the information he had at the time (Sarah amitted in her book that she did not tell Andrew what she needed). He deserviced to be loved and supported UNCONDIONTIONALY. I think she more affraid of lossing her title Duchess of York.

Zonk 01-31-2006 09:19 PM

In her interview regarding the Royal Family, she doesn't say she doesn't want to be a part of the family. I believe she states that they don't want her to be a part of the family again. Probably talking about Prince Phillip.

I agree with a previous poster who says that Sarah would never remarry Andrew and become a member of the royal family because its too stifling. I love Sarah, but I am the first to admit she has made some mistakes. With that in mind, I agree that she wants the best of both worlds. She likes the recognition that comes with being Sarah, Duchess of York and I am sure she doesn't want another Duchess of York running around the world(bears in mind why King George VI and Queen Elizabeth didn't want a parade of HRH Duchess of Windsors running all over Europe!) She also likes the financial opportunities that are available to her.

it seems to me that she has really aged!
