Ostensibly, the backside of the pooch is meant to represent the end/backside of 2019. Andrew and Sarah are not the BRF Brain Trust but i can't see them being quite so dumb and brazen to even implictly tell their detractors to kiss their rears


If one gives them the benefit of the doubt...

Of course it means the end of the year, but surely there are lots of other ways to say that with an image. The rear end of a dog? Really?

IMO - the card in general spreads the message/thought of "let's get this year over with and back to things that really matter".

You remind me a bit of Pride and Prejudice's Jane Bennet. Always thinking well of people or at least trying to. In the Sarah and Andrew case at least.
I suppose I am more like Elizabeth Bennet

Last year they had separate cards, this year apparently gave the emphasized need to put up a family front.

I still can't believe the Yorks dropped this Xmas card and right before the Sandringham walk. They could have chosen better imagery than a dog's rear end that leaving the year behind. The Sandringham walk is going to be more tense now.

Well, they do have a sense of humour, even if it is uncalled for.

At least the Yorks are consistent: tone deaf to the end.

I'm sure it was meant to be humorous, but instead it comes across as vulgar and self-involved.

As I said, consistent.

By the way it will be interesting to see how the RF deals with Andrew in the future, if all of them agree and act the same way?
Imagine if your son, brother ... had been in contact (or even commited that crime, still to be proofed) with someone like Epstein.
But the RF seems to lay back, wait and go on, in the end they joke about these stupid commonors who still adore them?
Bit as history tells, they really can do whatever they want

Merry Christmas to everyone here, may the light of our real newborn aking come into your lives!
You've summed it up perfectly. The card says, "2019 was a pain in the a.. but hopefully 2020 will mean the public forgetting all about our involvement with Epstein; Andrew returning to the royal fold and both of us getting to enjoy the hospitality of a new batch of shady billionaires. God bless us everyone! " They have no contrition AT ALL or an ounce of compassion, those abused woman are merely an irritation who have ruined THEIR year and who will hopefully disappear ASAP. Their attitude is quite sickening.

Do you think it will be more tense between the members of the BRF or with the public?

Exactly!
I think your interpretation is spot-on.

(Also, now that they are married, shouldn't Eugenie and Jack send their own cards?)

I don't think it will be tense at all, I don't think Andrew will show up for the walk.
He didn't attend Beatrice's engagement party. He may want to save his mother the embarrassment.

Something makes me think it'll be a few more years before the family can move on from the Andrew/Epstein scandal

I presume it's rather the hope of the poster who wishes it to be more tense with the public (and perhaps also between the BRF members). Anything for any kind of drama, it's what she thrives on.

I would think so, too, but they didn't last year either.

We'll see about Andrew showing up or not.

I just shake my head with them....They just cannot stop digging that hole.

Don't use Christmas Cards to make statements. Poor taste from the pic to the attitude.

Probably in their heads the hole shouldn't have been there in the first place.

Back to Epstein affair,
anyone who has not understood yet, look at this brilliant analysis:
YT The psychology of Prince Andrew by JCS Criminal Psychology
it tells almost all facts including his facial expressions, I only missed the details about his
( a liar's ) eyes movement.

As I said before it will be really interesting how the RF will treat him, because they surely know what he did, if he admitted or simply by knowing him..... ig is so clear. If they really ignore everything and go on, they fool the people. Let's see if people take this much longer.

Andrew's involvement with Epstein has its own thread. That being said and focusing on the family angle and how they "treat" Andrew, I would hope that the BRF treats all its members with unconditional love and that includes Andrew. Stand behind him, love him and support him and be there for him no matter what he's done or hasn't done. This by no means says that they'll condone mistakes and wrongdoings and goof ups and just plain bad behavior.

Its when things go awfully wrong and we make our grandest mistakes in life that we *need* the love and support of our families. This is what families do.

Usually York card has 4/5 photos
I imagine this is one last photo. I love dogs, I thought it was cute. Just like the year they put the puppies in the drawer
There is always a fun touch to the cards, some message written as it should be and Sarah always signs

But of course DM doesn't publish the full card.

Since Andrew has withdrawn from most of his patronages, I wonder if Beatrice will be allowed to take over?

It would be less awkward than to parcel them out among other family members, and it would keep up the illusion that it is temporary ...until it becomes clear that it isn't.

I believe I've read that Beatrice was involved with her father's Pitch@Palace and perhaps was on the board for that organization. If I'm not mistaken though, it'll be Andrew's private secretary, Amanda Thirsk that will head up the Pitch@Palace scheme now.

As Beatrice is not a working royal for the "Firm", I don't see her taking on any of the organizations and patronages that Andrew held in relation to his official royal roles in the "Firm". What will happen to those is anyone's guess at this point.

Prince Andrew has been spotted driving with an unknown woman around the Sandringham estate:
