I can't say with absolute certainty, but it's my understanding that she was recovering when she started spending time with the Prince of Wales and so wasn't at her thinnest.

I don't see anything in that picture that would suggest anorexia. She may indeed have faced that issue but in that picture it is not evident. I think people tend to fling around the term much too freely, JMO.

Lady Sarah has spoken publicly about her struggle with anorexia. IIRC she stated that for a while she lived on little more than vodka and cigarettes.

Has this wedding taken place yet?? Harry and George were close as children and seem to have remained fairly since. Would imagine you would see Harry attending but maybe the wedding managed to remain under the radar without press and paps. Guessing it could have taken place in South Africa without anyone being aware of it

I have no clue if the wedding has taken place. I haven't heard anything about it. A surprise to me. Perhaps someone on here knows more about it.

I just googled "McCorquodale Moore wedding" and came up with this, which looks legitimate:

Thanks for that

Interesting no personal guest pictures or mobile phones allowed. And no kids at wedding.

If anyone attends it will be Harry more likely than William - and even then its a push if he goes.

George's looks have really changed, perhaps because of weight gain. He and Harry used to look so much more alike.

Also, I hope Lady Sarah likes to ride the hunt with the band on live foxes.
She had some health issues around her upbringing, she had Anorexia, drank heavily as a teenager, and smokes, plus time outdoors a lot can add up, not to mention family drama.

Numerous people assume Lady Sarah Spencer was born with the title of Her Ladyship. However this is not true. Sarah did not become Lady Sarah until 1975 when her father became the 8th Earl Spencer.

That's true, before that all the Spencer girls/young women were called "The Honorable" before their names, i believe.

If I don't mistake, Her Ladyship is a form of address (and not a title) used to address to Baronesses, Countesses and Marchionesses. So Her Ladyship isn't and has never been the proper form of address to Lady Sarah.

It would appear Harry is spending the remainder of the summer doing conservation work in south africa - perfect timing for his cousin George's wedding in a weeks time.

When Lady Sarah Spencer was dating Prince Charles, she learned that a mere weekend at Windsor Castle demanded a suitcase full of clothes. A typical day might require a riding habit for Her Ladyship for the morning, a day-dress for lunch, a skirt for tea, and a long dress for dinner.
