A Wife for Prince Andrew, Duke of York
 
I would like to start a thread on people's opinions regarding if they would support a remarriage between Andrew and Sarah, why/why not. For me, i would support it, but for them, i think they are happy as they are.

lizz70 12-20-2005 10:57 AM

Yes I would. they have maintained a good relationship for all these years. They still care for one another. The press and the royal family gave Sarah such a hard time and she went off the rails.

Now, times are different, the royal family is different esp since Princess Diana died, they had to come down from their pedestal and be more realistic.

Sarah deserves to be happy. She has struggled with being picked on for her looks, picked on for everything she has done but she has also been an excellent mother, worked hard to get herself out of debt and done a lot of good work, sometimes very low key without the accolades.

She and Andrew still care about each other and we should let them be together without criticism. Maybe if they were private citizens, they would be back together by now.

Australian 12-20-2005 11:01 AM

Yes i completely agree with this. But maybe they are friendly and happy with each other now that they arnt married anymore and work best together as friends and parents and perhaps not as a married couple? I admire this couple for still maintaining a good relationship after the marriage collapsed

ysbel 12-20-2005 11:04 AM

Yes I would support a remarriage for both of them but to somebody else. Sarah said she wasn't cut out to be royal and Andrew is going to carry around that baggage with him no matter how much they care about each other.

I'd like for them each to find someone new. Maybe now that the kids are grown, they will.

lizz70 12-20-2005 11:05 AM

Perhaps they are better as friends rather than lovers or spouses. I don't thnk anyone can be hypocritical about her bringing the house of windsor into disrepute, especially after charles married his long term mistress.

I think they like it better this way, they can just go about their lives and spend time with each other away from the spotlight.

lizz70 12-20-2005 11:06 AM

It would be great to see Sarah find happiness again, whether with Andrew or someone new. she deserves it - she had a rough ride.

pollyemma 12-20-2005 11:07 AM

their remarrying is about the only thing that would make her palateable to me again.

it would just be great not to see her on Larry King Live or Oprah every week. which would be the case if she remarried.

but seriously though, she and andrew get along great. he's not been the same since the divorce and I think it's near impossible for him to find a woman who'll marry him with all the baggage of being the second duchess or york.

it would be great for both of them if they remarried.

lizz70 12-20-2005 11:08 AM

LOL....yes, they do love royalty in America for sure lol, lol

Australian 12-20-2005 11:09 AM

They still seem like a happy and fun family. Their behaviour towards each other and towards the girls really reminds me of the way Princess Alexandra and Prince Joachim of Denmark conduct themselves after divorce. I'm not comparing Sarah to Alexandra, just noting how both of them still have a happy family after a broken marriage and can be civil to each other.

purple_platinum 12-20-2005 11:16 AM

Why not?!

i think they showed a divorce couple can still maintain balanced & civil relationship... they're great with their children or at family occassion...

so, if a re-marriage if what it takes to be happy.. then, why not??

Mahoogie 12-20-2005 11:25 AM

I like this couple..they look good together as always..With their adorable girls, they look beautiful as a family...I wish them all the best..hope its not too late...

zeap 12-20-2005 01:12 PM

I rather not having a Monarchy at all if they let that woman back into the Firm...

Toledo 12-20-2005 02:04 PM

They seem to be now best of friends, maybe it's time they move on with other partners.

Don't worry, I'm counting on King Will and Queen Kate to save the monarchy when their turn comes! :)
The lady of York will be but an historical curiosity, like Wallis and so many others in the past.

selrahc4 12-20-2005 04:02 PM

I wouldn't like to see them re-marry. I think they're best suited to be "just friends". I think Sarah would be an enjoyable person to know, but I think she is not suited to be royal.

I do wish Prince Andrew would find someone to share his life and work. Seeing his elder brother so happy and content with his wife at his side makes me feel sad for The Duke of York.

ysbel 12-20-2005 04:10 PM

Well since there's another thread about whether William is the savior of the monarchy, I won't start one here.

I don't think Sarah coming back into the Royal Family would hurt the monarchy but it would be hard on Sarah.

I don't think the BRF has changed much since Sarah left it. Now that the other royals have re-married we see what type of woman fits in the Royal Family. Sophie and Camilla don't speak to the press and just go about their business (except for the time Sophie was tricked by the fake sheik but I doubt that will happen again) but Sarah was born to talk and talk a lot so that situation would still be intolerable for her.

houri 12-20-2005 05:26 PM

it will be nice to see them togather againe , it seems that Prince Andrew have feeling for her ( it just my opinion ) .

HRHAmy 12-20-2005 09:44 PM

I would love to see it and I think there's a good possibility since neither one has remarried and hasn't had a serious relationship since the divorce. I think they were made for each other! I hope they do remarry in a small ceremony like Charles and Camilla:)

Margrethe II 12-20-2005 09:52 PM

Yeah, I would support a reunion of the Duke & Duchess of York :)

If this did become reality, would Sarah be reinstated the style of Her Royal Highness?

"MII"

gattica28 12-20-2005 10:04 PM

If Charles and Camilla can marry...so Andrew and Fergie can re-marry! Its time to forgive and move on!

Logic would dictate that the answer is YES THE Duchess of York etc. as she would be the wife of HRH THE Duke of York etc. Any wife of Andrew would have these titles.

sara1981 12-20-2005 10:46 PM

we have wait and see what happened if Prince Andrew and Sarah,Duchess of York would getting remarried again and happy each other like past in their wedding day and marriages years they later the Duchess of York had admit as affair with busniessman and Prince Andrew found out in the taboilds about it and agree to separation in 1992 and they divorces in 1996 for while if HM Queen think Prince Andrew and Sarah,Duchess of York would getting remarried again if HM says no they respect her.

grim_lady 12-20-2005 10:47 PM

I agree gattica! People make mistakes but then again it's also great to forgive. But at the same time I don't see them ever getting back together but anything can happen.

crisiñaki 12-20-2005 11:45 PM

They have a great relationship the way it is, but I don't think they would remarry, they have to move on and find new partners...

I think I would like to see them remarry but I don't think that's what they want to. They are happy just as they are, parents to their daughters, good friends. I think they still have feelings for each other but they are better off as they are.

I think this as well, definately.

lady_windsor 12-21-2005 05:25 AM

I would also love to see them remay. I think they are both very great people to their children and all....i dont want them to be old and lonely...they deserve each other and they deserve to be happy...however the chances are very small..i would really love to see them married someday but i dont think it will ever happen

I think they love one another but, are not in love.

Married or not, I would just like them both to be happy, which they seem to be right now.:) As do their daughters, although it is not wise to base your own life on what your children may or may not want you to do, they tend to grow up and leave to live their own lives.
From the outside it would be wonderful but, we don't know if Andrew has got over the betrayal enough to trust her again and we don't know if she feels she needs a permanent man in her life!

Princejohnny25 12-21-2005 12:30 PM

I would support a remarriage. With the current royal family not much attention would be payed on her. It would be on Camilla and the Princes of Wales. Also Beatric and Eugiene would take up a lot of the press. They would not have as much pressure and burden of royalty. I think Andrew still loves her deeply. I think his love for her is making it hard for him to move on. They both need to figure out where they are going, whether to remarry or both move on. If they wont remarry each other I would love for them to find someone else to marry or be with.

Lady Marmalade 12-21-2005 12:40 PM

Why not? How wonderful would that be if they wanted to re-marry? Both are more mature and wisened. I truly believe had they married a little later in life a doing some more growing up, they would have stayed married.

But, I would only want them to re-marry if that is what they both wholly wanted and without any influence from the parents, siblings, courtiers, etc. Their daughters' approval would be all that should be important to them.

Am I Bothered 12-21-2005 01:47 PM

One word... NO

Princess BellyFlop 12-21-2005 03:42 PM

No, no York re-marriage.
I do not believe that we should forget that a spouse got into a toe-sucking session with her accountant while on vacations with her children and by going so she not only cheated on her beloved husband but publicly humiliated him and HIM is the lovely and adorable Prince Andrew!

Andrew acted as a true prince by keeping his mouth shout and remaining courteaous to his former wife. If he was to remarry Sarah, it would be humiliating again after all she has done!

saphills 12-21-2005 03:54 PM

I read somewhere that they still love each other, I would like it.

Princejohnny25 12-21-2005 06:53 PM

Come on people, its not up to you whether she is fogivable for her PAST mistakes. She lived through them and came out stronger. The Queen respects her and her and Andrew still love each other. If they want to remarry than there is no reason not to support them. She does a lot of good work. She is unique. There is no mold as to what a princess should be and she made her role fit her. She was a modern princess. She still does good even though she doesnt have to. If Andrew will take her back then God bless him and let the church bells ring. You cant have a perfect royal family. They are a normal family and you will get many different personalities in it.

Am I Bothered 12-21-2005 08:19 PM

You're right, its not up to us, if P Andrew and her family forgive her then who am I to disagree. I just wouldn't support it and I think that is the general feeling here in Britain (of course I don't claim to speak for everyone)...
That could all change of course, with the right PR, I mean, people have warmed to Camilla, including some of her sternest critics...

My personal opinion, is that I don't support a re-marriage. But thats only because I think that marriage and divorce are serious decisions, and have a huge impact especially on children involved. I just hope that whatever they decide, its for good...

branchg 12-21-2005 09:19 PM

I am not sure they really would want to remarry, especially since Sarah has made it clear on a number of occasions that she is happier being on her own, rather than having duties and responsibilities as HRH.

I think they are firm in their love for the girls and being together as a family for them, which is certainly wonderful. But, I doubt we will ever see a remarriage.

I think Prince Philip would be adamantly against it and I can't see the Queen taking a stand against her husband on a remarriage. The Duke makes most of the decisions when it comes to family matters.

I don't think the problem is the Queen...I think the problem is with her husband, the Duke of Edinburgh. From what I gather, he cannot stand Fergie and what she did to Andrew and the embarrassment she caused the Royals. In his eyes, she could never redeem herself.

Princejohnny25 12-21-2005 10:51 PM

Yes but the Duke of Edinburough is old. If Andrew wants to remarry then he will. The Queen will have to approve so not to cause a scandal. Andrew is a grown man and he can definitly stand up to his father, especially since it was his father who made his life and marriage harder. I heard that Andrew was the Queens favourite son so if he wanted to remarry Im sure she would support him. And its not like hes second in line to the throne anymore. Beatric and Eugiene are almost adults and living on their own. A remarriage wouldnt affect them that much. But I do see your point on why Britian might be hesitant to accept her as one of its ambassadors. Its different with Camilla. People didnt know her at all. Now that she is in the limelight people get to know her and warm to her. People know the Duchess of York though. They know who she is and her recent celebrity life has made her more open. They know what they will be inviting back to the RF. I can understand your point. But hey, we americans love her so if you wont take her back were glad to keep her.

pollyemma 12-22-2005 12:47 PM

Fergie has a new boyfriend (allegedly) we may have to wait awhile for her remarriage to andrew.

ysbel 12-22-2005 01:01 PM

Good for Sarah! Now I hope that Andrew gets off his duff and finds someone special. He's too nice not to find a good woman to settle down with.

Could anyone here post that controversial tabloid pic of fergie and her accountant ( the toe-sucking ones )..Its not that I intend to dig graves of the past, am just curious about that tabloid pic which led to the yorks divorce and Prince Philip's rage..I havent seen that tabloid pic..

Zonk 12-28-2005 09:44 AM

I say let bygones be bygones. If Andrew has forgiven her...does it matter what the rest of us think. And not to bring up the Camillla situation again...but if she can be accepted into the fold...why can't Sarah? Or is forgiveness, committing adultrey, and making a mistake only available for a few?

Aussie Princess 12-28-2005 09:54 AM

If they got back together, great, though I don't think it will happen, I agree they have a good thing going as they are, friends and co-parents. they handles the divorce remarkably well i think, in the end, and Beatrice says in her tattler story that they have had a very close family unit since the divorce. i don't think it will happen because they are happy with things as they are and it works for them.

I totally agree. There does seem to be a different set of standards, not just coming from the RF, but also from the public, how the Princes' wives should behave. There were endless comparisons of Sarah to Diana during their marriages, clothes, childrearing etc. I think it's great for her and Andrew to be on such good terms inspite of the divorce. It's rare even among the general public, and I'm sure it's been a great relief for their two girls.

Queen Marie 01-01-2006 07:55 AM

If Sarah is uncomfortable with life as a royal, then I don't think they should remarry. That's no reason however, for her and Andrew not to be a couple. Living together and not being married isn't frowned upon so much these days. That way, they would both still have the freedom to do what they want career wise.
If they do wish to remarry, I certainly wouldn't object as I'm sure it would be a well thought through decision this time around.

branchg 01-01-2006 02:32 PM

I think Sarah and Andrew should just leave things as they are if they are comfortable with their arrangement and happy along with their children. Re-marriage is the romantic ideal but I don't see it happening.

BeatrixFan 01-01-2006 02:42 PM

Sarah's played celebrity for far too long. She couldn't expect to be welcomed back into the Royal fold as an equal.

A Wife for Prince Andrew, Duke of York
 
He's tall, handsome and a Prince too. He is gorgeous in a tuxedo and looks fabulous in uniform. So why is Prince Andrew, Duke of York still single years after his divorce from Sarah Ferguson? Is there not one woman out there who can make the stern-faced royal happy again and end his obvious loneliness?

crisiñaki 03-21-2006 07:48 PM

I don't think Andrew has understood where does he stand with Fergie, sometimes she's all let's-get-back and other times she's I'm-living-in-NY so as long as they don't resolve their situation neither one would get a significant other, they are too attached to each other to think about other people

I agree but I kinda want them to get back together! They were a good couple! And genuinely seem in love with each other even though they are not together anymore!

He's too good for Sarah Ferguson. Surely there is someone out there for him who will respect him while they are married.

I think the answer to this question is that Andrew probably thinks that Sarah is the only wife and mother to him and his kids and that he obviously still deeply loves Sarah. And sees her as irreplaceable

When a man in this family loves, he really loves to death:cool:

ysbel 03-24-2006 08:03 AM

As Andrew is one of my favorite royals, I sincerely hope he finds someone special.

I think there is a lot of feeling between Andrew and Sarah, not least of which the two wonderful daughters they share, but if they can't live together I do hope they can each find someone they can live with.

As Beatrice and Eugenie are becoming grown up, we may see some new relationships for both Sarah and Andrew.

kelly1972 03-24-2006 08:55 AM

I would really like Andrew to meet someone special and fall in love with them. Even though it would be wonderful for him and Sarah to get re-married I have a feeling that it would never happen in Prince Philip's lifetime as he is well know for his utter dislike of Sarah. Andrew still is a very nice looking man for someone in their midforties and I wish him happiness.

I've always thought Prince Andrew was the more handsome of the "Windsor sons". Everyone offers up opinions of the guy, but he seems fairly decent. I'm surprised he hasn't remarried or at least engaged in a long-term relationship. Maybe he still carries the torch for his ex wife. I dunno but there's something rather lonely about him.

Maybe he is religious and sticks to his marriage vows ("till death will us part") so there is a chance we have to wait till his wife exits this life. Just like his brother Charles waited till his marriage was divorced not only by court but by death as well before he married Camilla. ;)

I wish that Andrew would move on quickly but the news that Beatrice insisted and got her mother to be present at Andrew's Order of the Garter ceremony kills me.

Zonk 06-08-2006 03:46 PM

You know what..you can't help who you love. As long as its not a destructive kind of love...I don't see the problem with Andrew still loving Sarah. We only know what we hear and read in the papers. What holds them together must be something..cause they have both dated other people since their divorce.

I don't blame Beatrice if she did have anything to do with that. I mean they seem to be giving the girls mixed messages, they live together, do things together, this would probably give the girls a lot of hope that they're parents would re-marry. I do wonder how Fergie would handle seeing Andrew with a new women? I am pretty sure no women would want her husband living with his ex-wife. So Fergie would probably have to move out. I do see Andrew getting married again whether to Sarah or someone else.

According to I believe the Daily Mail, Andrew is said to be dating the American Angie Everhart, a red-head and model who's dated a string of high profile men including Albert of Monaco. Mind you, according to the paper Everhart even attended Beatrice's b-day bash, was seen talking, at the bash, with Andrew for supposedly hours, and, get this, was also seen dancing with none other than the Duchess of York herself. The two ladies supposedly got along swimmingly.

And as for Andrew, pre-Everhart, not having been in long term relationships, that's just not true according to the British press. He's dated a high profile business woman whose name escapes me at the moment, for years, but supposedly 'dropped' her fairly recently.

No, there would be one HRH the Duchess of York (where Duchess of York is a royal title) and one Sarah, Duchess of York, (where Duchess of York is like a last name for a divorced wife of a peer).

More than a decade later, neither one is seriously linked to anyone else. They still have it for one another. I would love to see them remarried later in life when the social scene grows tired for them and they are settled. It would not happen in the Queen's or Philips lifetimes though. I think Sarah has too much respect for the Queen to ask her to endure the media frenzy of a remarriage. I would be disappointed in Charles if he tried to interfere if that was their decision. He is no innocent bystander in the extramarital affairs department. More discretion does not equal less sin. People in glass castles should not throw stones.:p

Frankly speaking I think the status quo would be best for both of them- sarah can never fit back into the rigorous role of being a royal wife with all its pressures etc - andrew probably loves sarah and vice versa but at the same time he likes his privacy and independence so if they can sustain a good relationship post-divorce then they should not interfere with it and just take it as it comes.The worst thing is if they got remarried and both were terribly unhappy all over again

seto 08-07-2006 01:48 PM

If andrew were to remarry would he have to follow the same procedure as charles meaning civil service and blessing or could he remarry in the church?

BeatrixFan 08-07-2006 02:18 PM

He'd have the same style marriages as Charles.

Now, times are different, the royal family is different esp since Princess Diana died, they had to come down from their pedestal and be more realistic.

Sarah deserves to be happy. She has struggled with being picked on for her looks, picked on for everything she has done but she has also been an excellent mother, worked hard to get herself out of debt and done a lot of good work, sometimes very low key without the accolades.

She and Andrew still care about each other and we should let them be together without criticism. Maybe if they were private citizens, they would be back together by now.

Sarah had everything, her husband's love, 2 kids, a wonderful home, but she got bored as P. Andrew was often away as he was in The Royal Navy- so she did what she did, Prince Andrew did not deserve it, very different from Diana' situation, well, if he still loves her, it's alright, but I know Sarah did change , though to state she does deserve his love, don't know, not really sure !

Princess BellyFlop 08-08-2006 12:52 AM

MAybe Andrew keeps this facade relationship with Sarah so he can enjoy a princely bachelor's life without the press harassing him. Sarah is front for him and in return he maintains her royal aura and gives her a royal place to stay when in England.

Incas 08-10-2006 01:47 AM

That's an interesting idea. Whatever the reason each held privately, they do seem to have a special bond that transcended divorce. I think the McCartneys should have hired Andrew and Sarah's divorce lawyers instead of Charles and Diana's. They would have done their Beatrice a huge favor.

seto 08-10-2006 12:36 PM

I think it takes two to make a marriage work andrew played his part in the break up. But the fact that they loved and still love and care about each other is really quite nice. I really don't think either of them was ready for marriage and that is why it failed. Neither thought of what they were doing or giving up maybe blinded by love.

qui mal y pense 08-10-2006 01:24 PM

I agree. I don't think they had a choice about the divorce, but they were both much younger and stupider then. I think they have always cared deeply for each other and have really made up and ARE together. The fact that they don't share a public life would only be a plus in a royal relationship. It leaves no room for speculation, pressure, gossip and intrusion- well, sort of, if you count us out.

Incas 08-10-2006 10:36 PM

I don't think youth and mental intelligence had anything to do with Andrew and Sarah's marriage or divorce. They made the "right" decisions at the various times of their relationship. It's always easier to look at some years later and say they should have/could have, etc.

I also think that both were adjusted to and lived two different lifestyles that clashed between the two of them--from commanding to less formality--that may have been a thorn in their marriage. But of course only speculation.

I'm not so sure about this. Again, we don't know these people personally so it's hard to say but from what's been presented publically it seems Sarah's cheating (and not just once) was the main issue at hand. Who can blame Andrew, though I believe it was more pressure from his family (namely his father) which brought about the divorce than from him. He obviously still has strong feelings for his ex and who's to say that if they weren't royals and if their dirty laundry hadn't been hung out for the world to see they might not have gotten divorced. Many couples work out their problems, even infidelity. Tho it is hard to turn the other cheek when your wife is out gallavanting across the globe with shady social-climbers in toe (sorry) and her indiscretions are splashed across the front pages of various tabloids.

I say Sarah is more at fault here. I think that's how most ppl see it. She knew the sort of family she was marrying into and she knew of Andrew's obligations to his military career as well. She could always have turned down his proposal. To throw these things up after the fact is weak.

have to agree with you here. as much as i like sarah, she had to know that in her position she'd be alone a lot of the time...simply because she's a military wife. as for the family she married into, she had to know she'd be caught eventually.

madalx2 08-12-2006 02:10 PM

Bella and Duchess, I agree with you both! Her father was in the military and knew that there would be long seperations. She was friends with Diana before getting involved with Andrew, so she knew the problems Diana was having with the family.

I read the book Maj. Ferguson wrote (Sarah stopped talking to him for close to a year because of it). He stated that he believed Sarah was more in love with the Royal Family them she was with Andrew. He also talkes about the conversation he was in on when Andrew offered the resign from the Navy to be home more for her and she told him to stay in. Per Sarah's own father, Andrew was willing to work on the marriage it was Sarah who was not.

seto 08-12-2006 02:17 PM

Well I think sarah has done a great job of turning her life around and she and andrew obviously love and like each other. Which I think is very good for their daughters to see.:smile:

Very true. And it does say something for both Andrew and Sarah that they have made the effort to put their daughters first. If only all divorced couples could do this.

Duchess 08-12-2006 04:18 PM

totally agree with you. she has indeed done a great job of turning her life around. she's like any one else...we all have illusions about how married life will be and then we find out how different it is.

misselle 08-13-2006 10:18 PM

Sarah wasn't happy in the marriage;she was a Navy wife,often left alone for months on end.She received no support from Buckingham Palace.She was often compared to the Princess of Wales and always came up lacking...Sarah was constantly criticized for her weight,her fashion sense,the faces she made while talking animatedly with someone...Then she cheated,more than once;there are also whisperings that the Duke of York had flings.Sarah should have known about being a Navy wife,yes,that's true.And Diana must have warned her about life in the Royal Family.But all of that is past;Sarah has done a good job at raising her daughters;Andrew had been understanding and supportive.Sarah has turned herself into an astute business woman who still has time to serve her charities.
I think that Sarah and Andrew still love each other;it would be great if they could remarry.But,I've heard that the Duke of Edinburgh and Sarah are not on speaking terms so remarriage doesn't seem like an option at this time.

Elspeth 08-13-2006 10:25 PM

In her autobiography Sarah says she'd asked to accompany Andrew on his postings and live in Navy housing so they could be together but her request was denied. When Prince Philip was in the Navy, Princess Elizabeth accompanied him for long stretches, even leaving her children behind in England while she was with her husband. It's interesting that although it was OK for the heir to the throne, whose father was not in good health, was allowed to do that but the wife of a younger son was not.

Zonk 08-13-2006 10:36 PM

Its also interesting to note that when Elizabeth was with Phillip, her kids (in this case Charles and Anne) were being raised by nannies and Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother. When Andrew and Edwards were born, she made a conscious effort to spend more time with them. Of course, she was more relaxed in her role as Queen. Perhaps, Sarah's request to spend more time with Andrew was denied because of this. Either way...Sarah couldn't win. I remember when they went on a long trip overseas (was it Australia or something) Sarah didn't bring Beatrice along (it was for four to six weeks) and you would have thought she officially abandoned the child they way the press howled.

misselle 08-13-2006 10:44 PM

Yes,it seemed like Sarah could do nothing right.The Queen left her children with the nannies when she had to go on official trips;but Diana changed things when she insisted that she take William along on the Australian tour.Sarah had stated that she felt the "gray people,"the officials at Buckingham Palace had it in for her;she was advised by palace officials that it would be better for Beatrice to remain in England.She probably would not have been allowed to take Beatrice if she had asked.

seto 08-26-2006 02:48 PM

I just read on the royal news sight that andrew and angie everhart are serious so say friends. Would the royals allow him to marry angie?

Lady Bluffton 08-27-2006 10:04 PM

If Koo Stark didn't cut it for the royal family, I don't think Ms. Everhart would either.

(Check out her wikipedia entry.)

She is rumored to have had an affair with "shock jock" radio personality Howard Stern, and was married "briefly" to Ashley Hamilton, the son of the perpetually tanned George Hamilton and pseduo-stepson (?) of Rod Stewart (Ashley's mom is Alana Stewart).

Don't think it will happen.

Incas 08-27-2006 10:24 PM

Regardless of Ms Everhart's suitability, I just find it laughable that a 50-something man who doesn't have a real chance of inheriting the crown needs to be "allowed" to marry anyone. And they said the same about his older brother before April 2005.

I think Angie Everhart's main obstacle to becoming the next Duchess of York would probably be a few of her B-movies where she appears nude and is involved in 'love' scenes. Her past marriage years ago and her many boyfriends probably isn't enough to sink her but 'Love in Paris' is, unfortunately. I do think it's great that Andrew has seemingly moved on from Sarah, thank goodness. If the BRF can buy up Angie's past compromising photographic positions and keep them out of the public domain, maybe they have a chance. She just might make a great duchcess.

Zonk 08-28-2006 06:05 PM

He won't marry Angie. That past...I knew her movies would do her in. I am glad he is dating..although I wouldn't be sad to see him remarry Sarah.

If he likes red head..why can't he find a nice quiet girl who has red hair?

scooter 08-28-2006 07:31 PM

Well, Queen Elizabeth and the Duke of E are both elderly. When they die, I would think King Charles would have some sympathy for his brother's position. Also, why would it be a problem for the Anglican church for them to remarry? I would think they would be in favor..'till death do you part and all that. It's not exactly the same as marrying some one that you had been carrying on with. If that's ok, why shouldn't Sarah and Andrew be remarried?
