Hmm a house worth £1.5million to live in...didn't Sarah once say she got little in the divorce? Clearly she's always had a bit of an issue with money and its worth.

Birch Hall is stunning and would have been a perfect home for Sarah to have lived with her children. But it would have indeed required a substantial amount of money for upkeep.

What I will never understand is why Andrew and Sarah did not purchase a home like Birch Hall after their wedding. HMQ offered them their choice of a home as a wedding gift and instead of choosing a beautiful stately historic estate, they squandered millions on the construction of ugly (imo) Sunninghill Park aka "SouthYork".

Which today lies abandoned and in ruins.

IIRC Sunninghill Park was bulldozed after Andrew sold it to a friend/developer etc.

Here’s a link about Sunninghill Parks demolition - it appears the billionaire who purchased it has erected his replacement mansion after demolishing the one the York’s built. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/art...RGER-home.html

If I recall correctly, the money was for a house purchased by a trust in Beatrice and Eugenie's names, and Sarah would have been allowed to live there with her daughters. Sarah did not own it personally, and was not given money for her living expenses. I could be mis-remembering, but that's what I recall reading at the time of the divorce.

This article states that Andrew says the Queen will not pay off his chalet debt. https://uk.news.yahoo.com/prince-and...133629234.html
The claim is that the chalet is on the market & the sale should pay off the debt which he and Sarah failed to pay in Dec. 2019. Given that the York’s previous property Sunninghill languished on the market w/out a buyer for several years, I don’t blame the former owner of the chalet for suing the Yorks for their breach of contract, particularly given Sarah’s track record of not honoring her debts - which has become something of a lifestyle for Sarah.

The problem with the Divorce settlement was she didn't got. Consider they had similar pre-nups if is understandable. But Diana was able to get a piece of Charles stocks, bonds and properties. Andrew's just didn't have these.
Take that into consideration that she really wanted to live it up when she was in American and you can see why the money didn't last and she run up debts.

That's how I remember reading it, too.

"Last week Their Royal Highnesses @yorkiebea and Princess Eugenie joined a group of young people we have supported @TheChristieNHS for a special Zoom call.

Their Royal Highnesses led a fascinating conversation on the challenges young people face during the Coronavirus crisis."

Camilla Tominey, Associated Editor and royal correspondent of The Telegraph has written a piece about Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie, particularly on family life. The article is behind the paywall. There is collage of three pictures in near the heading: Eugenie and Jack's wedding, Beatrice and Eugenie in school uniform with Sarah, Duchess of York behind them, Beatrice and Edoardo's wedding. This collage has the caption, "First marriage and now motherhood beckon as the ninth and tenth in line to the throne continue to carve a path outside of ‘The Firm’."

As Eugenie announces her pregnancy and Beatrice enjoys stepmotherhood, the York sisters are starting their own happy families at last

I would say February and March also count as "early 2021"!

I saw the second picture in a Tatler article with Sarah, Duchess of York taking Princess Princess Eugenie and Zenouska Mowatt to school in 1992 (11th September). I do think by "school", it probably means a nursery that is part of a school. The Tatler article itself was talking about Zenouska Mowatt.

Link to the Tatler article: https://www.tatler.com/article/who-is-zenouska-mowatt

I also found two pictures on Getty Image

Princess Eugenie (23rd March 1990) and Zenouska Mowatt (26th May 1990) are born only around two months apart

Would it be to much to hope for that a royal re-wedding between the Duke and Duchess of York, who already live together in an ersatz marriage, would be a way to re-introduce them both to life as working royals...

Naïve for sure, but it seems to me a joyous thought regardless, knowing how committed they are to each other and that time heals all wounds, even royal ones
