This is a good way to distribute packages to those who really deserve it. The Yorks have long been generous to charities and have contacts and means of managing the task.
I like seeing their busy assembly line and them in work clothes.

The Royal connection also gives a big shout out to NHS workers.

It's great that the Yorks are doing this - Eugenie has mentioned the NHS in an Instagram post, too, IIRC.

Great work. By the way, Sarah, makeup is our friend.

Possibly because whilst they aren't remarried they're both free to conduct their lives as they please somewhat below the radar. Andrew has been pictured with a number of young women on yachts and there are accounts of others (over 18), Sarah has been pictured with other men over the years and no one's really questioned it except recently. They're free to do whatever suits them apart and together.

Sarah doesn't have to do official duties (pre Andrew's forced retirement) and be an official member, which didn't exactly suit her. She's free to do what she wants (within a lot of reason) on that score too.

Then there are the rumours that Philip and others have officially said (literally) "over my dead body" although obviously that's not confirmed.

It was mostly a rhetorical question; though it will be interesting to see whether there will be a remarriage once the Duke's parents are gone. Especially since Andrew is no longer in an official royal role, such role would no longer be expected of Sarah - and she can continue her charity engagements she already undertakes.

While I believe the Duke and Duchess of York have developed a more of a brother/sister bond at this point in their lives more than a romantic one, I believe it would be pointless for anyone to try to come between them in an outside relationship.

They appear to have an us-against-them siege mentality and are tightly bound together ...for ever. They understand and accept one another completely.

Charles does not hold them in great favor and may possibly shunt them out of Royal Lodge if their funds dwindle and they cannot afford staff and upkeep.

Marina Mowatt has a tidy place on the Windsor estate, they can do something like that.

Charles has no control over his residence. Royal Lodge is owned by the crown estate, and has been leased to Andrew. Andrew may have to clean his own floors or such if he cant cover servants cost (I highly doubt that would happen) but his lease is secure. Because of the money he spent on renovations, he doesn't pay an annual rent for the lease (which is 75 year lease). If he chose to move out before 2029 (25 years into his lease) he would get some of the money he paid into it back.

The property also comes with some cottages and out buildings. If he was short for money he could do as Edward does, and rent out some of those buildings. Edward pays very little of his annual rent on his home, as they rent out their outer buildings to a company. Andrew could and would likely do much the same if he isn't already.

Not surprised. I knew that HMQ would pay off the debt from the beginning.

Does this mean she now owns the chalet? If so, I hope she turns it over to Beatrice and Eugenie.

ETA: The article refutes the statement that the queen is settling the debt.

I thought Fergie and Andrew owned a chalet in Switzerland together. How many houses do they own? Anyone know?

Other than the chalet in the news recently, Andrew and Fergie own no homes at all I'm aware of. Andrew resides at Royal Lodge in Windsor but that's owned by the Crown Estates. Andrew has a long term lease there of 75 years as Countessmeout has posted a few posts back.

The chalet is the one that is about to be paid off 'by the Queen' if you believe the headlines for via sale if you read the articles.

They own no homes at all.

Sarah was given some money, as part of her divorce settlement to buy a home, but no home has ever been bought. I have no idea what has happened to that money but in the normal course of events it can't be spent on anything else other than what it was given to the spouse for ....

When Andrew took over Royal Lodge, after the Queen Mother's death, he paid a 75 year lease but I am sure I have read that he extended that to 99 years - about the same time that Edward paid the 99 year lease on Bagshot. Andrew got a lower rate of lease because he paid for the refurbishment himself, rather than have the Crown Estate pay for it.

Your comment is odd considering there’s a denial of this being true, in the article.

“But a spokesman for Andrew denied the Queen's involvement in the chalet debt last night, saying: 'The Queen will not be stepping in to settle the debt.”

Daily Mail articles are good for fish and chips.

It always amazes me how the DM and DE get away with writing one thing in the headlines and contradicts the headlines in the article (and so many people only read the headlines and so get the wrong information).

Sorry. 75% of the article reiterates that the Queen is settling the debt. It is only at the end of the article that says otherwise.
