On the face of it, I am quite impressed by this visit. Well done Fergie.

Madame Verseau 08-25-2018 02:37 PM

This is bad timing. Fergie allegedly is being offered 15 million to do a tell all on the royals.

https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.clo...all-164810.amp

A month before Eugenie's wedding and this comes out. There is already friction in the family with Sarah and she's not as well off as believed, given how she lives. Sarah's net worth is 1 million USD.

tommy100 08-25-2018 02:43 PM

I always said there would be a big scandal involving Fergie just before Eugenie's wedding, I think the media will try to target her (fake sheikh style) and will also hold on to any dirt they already have ready to cause a big splash in the build up.

That said, I don't think this is it. Wasn't it said that Fergie didn't have to sign a non-disclosure unlike Diana in part so she was able to make money more easily as part of her divorce. I can't see her doing this nor getting paid that much for it!

Denville 08-26-2018 06:04 AM

I doubt if she didn't have to sign a non disclosure agreement.

tommy100 08-26-2018 06:14 AM

I found the telegraph article that first broke the details of her divorce settlement which were given to the paper by "senior sources in the Royal Household"

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/ukn...3-million.html
Furthermore, the Royal family did not insist on an all-binding confidentiality clause as part of the divorce settlement which has enabled the Duchess to cash in on her royal connections, including earning £2.2 million from writing her autobiography.

The late Diana, Princess of Wales received a £17 million from her divorce settlement but only in return for a watertight confidentiality agreement.

The article dismisses the idea that Sarah would participate in this project. It says she wouldn’t do that with her daughter’s wedding coming up and destroy the relationships she has some of the family.

Osipi 08-26-2018 07:07 AM

All I know is that if Sarah would have been offered cash to do a "tell all" about the British royal family, she would have done it long before now. Especially when things got a bit rough for her at times financially.

Its not in her character makeup, I believe, to sell out a family that she likes and admires. She still has a good relationship with many of them. Including the Queen.

Claire 08-26-2018 07:22 AM

Cant agree more - this cant be the first time there has been an offer. And if you really have to look at it her relationship with the royals is currently at its best. Many of the lesser royals have reached out to her for Andrew, Eugenie and Beatrice's sake. She wouldn't burn bridges now.

I think she'd do anything for money.
Some people have no thought for consequences, they are too consumed with their own greed.

tommy100 08-26-2018 07:53 AM

I'm not a big fan of Sarah but she certainly does seem to retain some sort of loyalty to the Queen and always speaks highly of her. I'm sure she realises that were she to "tell all" then the trips to Balmoral, living in Royal Lodge etc may have to stop.

However, Charles seems to have shown her little love so when he becomes King watch and see.

irish_royalist 08-26-2018 12:46 PM

I'm no fan of Fergie but there's no way she would write this book - she would be completely ostracised by her ex-husband and her daughters and their future families, not the mention the Queen - I just don't think 15 million is worth that, even to her.

I agree. I'm not the biggest fan of Sarah but even I don't believe this is something she would do. Me thinks that this "reporting" is a contribution to the silly season.

Mermaid1962 08-26-2018 02:44 PM

I don't believe that she had to, because she was able to write "My Story". Diana had to sign a non-disclosure agreement, but I'd not heard of Sarah signing one.

I haven't read My Story, that I cn remember. But I don't think that Sarah ever dissed the RF as a whole or Andrew, the way that Diana had done with her criticisms of Charles... so possibly the book was not transgressing a non disclosure agreement? I ge the feelng, from Sarah that she did not reveal any secrets and she didn't attack the RF, just the courtiers...

Not sure where they got the net worth of $1 mil. since they mention her weight watcher's money - and as we all know that disappeared w/ the most recent financial debacle a couple of years ago. Maybe they just plucked a nice round number out of the air :whistling:

Non-disclosure has nothing to do with criticizing or praising. It's a non-disclosure. If one was sign, Sarah wouldn't be able to discuss the things the NDA covers.

A beautiful interview from a beautiful person. I’m always behind Sarah and Andrew and whatever they decide to do or not to do in the future.

Osipi 11-09-2018 07:36 PM

Wonderful article that really gives a good insight into the person that is Sarah. Regardless of the "protocol police" and those that focus on what is wrong with Sarah, this article focuses on what is positive about Sarah and there's a whole lot of things to admire about this woman.

She is definitely her own person and stands by who she is and won't conform to what others wish her to be. She knows what is important to her and when something is important, she goes all out for it whether it be her family, her friends (it was nice to know just who she was hugging outside Windsor Castle before the wedding. It made complete sense) and her causes which reflect her open heart and humanity. Things mean something to Sarah and she embraces that.

She sees the good in people and that's what stays with her. No discouraging words come out of her mouth and that, in and of itself, is a positive aspect for any of us to have. She's had a rough go of things throughout her life at times but she's never lost touch with her inner child and the sense of joy and wonderment that children have is something we should all aspire to.

There's a whole lot of good to be admired in Sarah Ferguson and blessed are the people that really know her well. :smile:

I just can't see why Sarah would choose to do this interview. What does it achieve? If she has manage to work her way back into the royal fold gradually, why does she want to endanger it?

Because Sarah makes money by selling things - the article references her teas. To sell things she relies on her name recognition which is tied to her daughters’ and ex husband’s family. The York’s received a great deal of press from Eugenie’s wedding and Sarah was front and center as MOB, so she’s capitalizing on it.
Note she throws Diana’s name into the mix as well - even though it’s well known that Diana had cut her off and wasn’t speaking to her when she died.

Iluvbertie 11-11-2018 09:33 PM

Just because Diana wasn't speaking to Sarah when Diana died doesn't mean that Sarah doesn't have fond memories of her as both a friend and sister-in-law.

Diana was well-known for cutting off people for all sorts of reasons - and then taking them back when someone else had upset her.

Sarah, in all probability, would have been back in Diana's good books and out again many times over the past 21 years had Diana lived.

My point being there is no reason to introduce Diana into a conversation about Eugenie’s wedding, and to do so was just silly. The reference to using her mother’s purse was understandable, thinking about her deceased father would have made sense (although she didn’t mention him.) Sarah was simply name dropping, as she is wont to do.

Osipi 11-11-2018 10:42 PM

It could also have been that with the wedding of her daughter and involving the entire BRF, perhaps Sarah remembered back to the time she was still a member of the family and the closeness she shared with Diana.

One thing I never would accuse Sarah of, and this is just me, is having a personality that exhibits the use of guile.

Oh I think she tries to be Guiley… or whatever the word is!! :smile: She was probably dropping Di's name because she knows that it sells.. But she's so dim, poor thing that I think she doesn't realise that many people will remember that she and Diana were on bad terms.. and that they will laugh at the mention of Diana.. (of course a lot of people wont know or care but may buy her products because she is connected to the RF...
I think she has a "hard neck" as we say in Irleand and can unblushingly face things out.. Like her selling access to Andrew. Some people would never appear in public again after that fuss, but sarah can do it. But I agree that she's really quite a silly simple person, not very clever and in that sense she's her own worst enemy. She does stupid things, is amazed when they get a bad reaction and then goes on and does them again...

Sarah referred to Princess Eugenie as disabled and spoke of Princess Beatrice's dyslexia in this shambles. When you see this, and then combine that with her constant 'very proud of my girls' tweets, you do start wondering why she puts them in such a poor light, like they are little moppets taking baby steps.


Sophie and Edward and Charles and Anne and Mark Phillips don't post about how "proud" they are of their children.

I have no idea whether she was upset or not but since this was an interview to celebrate/push for her "re introduction" to the Firm and the York's place in it, she'd have been a huge fool to say anything negative publicly.

I know, she's away with the fairies, absolutely in denial about how insignificant her daughters are in the scheme of things. When that Queen dies that will become brutally apparent but I think she's so deluded that it will come as a complete shock.

Biri 11-22-2018 03:54 AM

I think she just wanted to say that she sees in Jack the same positive character traits that Albert had.

Osipi 11-22-2018 04:39 AM

I think that's what she meant too, Biri. If anything, Sarah is spontaneous and says what she's feeling at the moment. I don't, for one minute, think that Sarah has the conniving, calculating kind of mind that constructs an agenda to be put forth. I don't think that Sarah is all to big on being back in the "Firm" again either. I honestly think that the way things are right now with her being on friendly terms with the royal family and still close to Andrew is exactly how she likes things to be.

To be honest, I don't see much changing in the years to come. Sarah and Andrew will grow old together comfortably with each being free to do their own thing in their own way and have happy children and grandchildren around them.

She's spontaneous. The "if it feels good, do it" type of person that lives in the moment. Now, this can be a good thing or a bad thing and I do believe its gotten Sarah into some really hot water at times. As far as speaking out, actually she is a private citizen and can and do whatever she likes. That's one of the perks of being "divorced to Andrew" (her words).

I don't believe she's seriously thinking of rejoining the "Firm" anytime soon. She's been down that road and knows its not for her. The next time she'll be seen with the BRF will be at Beatrice's wedding. Until then, its her life to do with as she chooses. :smile:

I just can't seem to get my head around what she is trying to achieve with this renewed media onslaught. Is she trying to get the media attention because another business venture is brewing? If it has taken her as long as this to get some sort of acceptance again by the RF, why is she jeopardising it all?

suztav 12-03-2018 12:16 PM

Yes, she's made some really stupid choices and did her share to get ostracized from the RF. However, the same could be said of Charles, Diana, and Camilla. Charles is on tape telling Camilla that he wanted to be a tampon. Craps … that's a man who's going to anointed by the Archbishop of Canterbury as King! Pretty embarrassing stuff.

I think that she and Andrew will continue to be domestic partners -- and, if not legally -- pretty much a married couple.

JMHO!

All of which is/has been discussed for years in their threads. Some people are just wondering that since her daughter's wedding was a success and she attended Harry and Megan's wedding which why she wants to have another go around at media interviews which often lead to embarrassments for her. Nothing to do with her domestic arrangements with Andrew or other members of the family. She is a private citizen so she can do as she likes but is it wise for her?

I think that she and Andrew will continue to be domestic partners -- and, if not legally -- pretty much a married couple.

JMHO!

Of course you "forget" to tell that the taped conversation was a hidden trap and a media-leak of something what was ecxhanged between two private individuals. Ms Ferguson has the talent to bring herself in embarrassing situations by making media rounds and so make herself herself for questions which she can not escape. Sarah seems not able to see the fine line between royalty and celebrity, let alone to walk on it. With this round of media-blabbing she herself has unconsciously given the answer why there will be no remarriage.

I don't think she can help herself. She loves the limelight, craves attention, and has absolutely no sense of decorum.

If anyone could be said to be a poster-child for her own worst enemy, it's Fergie. She's a private individual and can do as she likes, but it's a shame her actions reflect on her daughters.

Osipi 12-03-2018 02:25 PM

One thing that can be said in Sarah's favor though is that when she does give interviews or talks to the press about something, she rarely, if ever, says something bad about someone else. She probably could have made a fortune writing a "tell all" book over the past decades but that's not her style. She tends to see the positives in people.

I don’t disagree that she brought on much herself, however many others in the royal family have out a wrong foot forward. Sophie is adored now, but let’s not forget when she was still working a caught in some type of sting operation with a reporter. If I recall correctly—- she basically said the Queen Mum was a bit tipsy all the time.

I don't like the way she is bringing Sept. 11 into her life narrative. She had a peripheral experience at best.

I live in an area that was devastated after the Towers went down. At least 30 people from my immediate neighborhood died. Lots of others have died or are dying from illnesses related to working on Ground Zero in the aftermath.

Because, I suspect, then you get a free trip or at least an open bar.

What happened on 9/11 has affected all of us in some way or another. Its not a matter of whose experience was worse or who was closer or the proverbial question of "where were you when 9/11 happened?". It affected us all personally in some way as it did for Sarah. Its a day that will never, ever be forgotten. We can all add 9/11 into our own life narrative when we really think about it. :smile:

"The former Sarah Ferguson, ex-wife of Britain's Prince Andrew, had an 8:45 a.m. meeting scheduled that day for her Chances for Children charity, which was based at the World Trade Center, but was running late, reports columnist Cindy Adams."
https://abcnews.go.com/Entertainment...=102496&page=1

Sarah was in New York that day and scheduled for a meeting in one of the towers--that would affect anyone. She probably knew people that were in the Towers. That is hardly peripheral.

I think people would have so much more respect for the Duchess if she could find some way to help people without so frequently being photographed at gaudy bashes cuddling up to so-called celebrities, often with little discretion or decorum.

Osipi 12-08-2018 01:56 PM

Correct me if I'm wrong but from where I'm sitting, the majority of the bashes that Sarah attends are to support charities and organizations. She even has quite a few of her own charities and causes that she promotes. :biggrin:

Maybe - not sure - haven't really counted.
Remind me what role she has with Artists for Peace or Dubai Cares?

Osipi 12-09-2018 02:41 PM

She may not be involved in it at all. She may be there in support of the people who are though. Perhaps some of the patrons of these charities and organizations are those that also turn up to support Sarah's incentives.

Sarah isn't limited to what she can support. She's private citizen so basically can do whatever floats her boat. ;)

Leopoldine 12-09-2018 08:08 PM

Sarah Ferguson's 9/11 modus operandi is worrying. She, in her recollection of her 9/11 experience, never fails to mention the Little Red doll found in the debris. Little Red books are now being sold on internet book sites with mentions of "a percentage" going to "charity".

I know that Osipi is right in that 9/11 affected many people regardless of where they were. Use of 9/11 as a money-maker for Sarah Ferguson is abhorrent.

Leopoldine 12-09-2018 08:18 PM

… And, I just got an email from Barnes and Noble that the Little Red Christmas book is available for for a special price. There is no mention of a contribution to charity.


I have never contacted B&N about this book. I have only mentioned it here.

Osipi 12-09-2018 08:24 PM

Just checked and there's a mess of Little Red books available at abebooks.com for dirt cheap if someone is looking for them. I've never been inclined to seek them out myself.

I do agree that using 9/11 to push the book sales is a pathetic thing to do and, to me, dishonors the meaning of what happened that day.

From what I gather, this is a special initiative for Street Child and "SarahSenses" is the brand name of the product. Don't know exactly where the "Dark Knights" come in but I do have to admit that an aromatherapy line is a pretty good idea as most people can and do use various scents and such to create a "mood". I've no idea what the price tag on these items will be and, to be frank, it probably will be more than I care to spend. There really is a good amount of places to get scents cheaper but I imagine the draw would be to support Street Child.

No. IMO, people take jabs at her because she ... fails to learn from her many mistakes, and provides ammunition to her critics to take jabs at her :smile:

:previous: The Duchess looks quite good in that black gown with her red hair.

I would imagine that the Duchess of York is in need of finding ways of making money that aren't too out there and unacceptable. My opinion on the matter is neutral. I have a friend who met the Duchess once years ago at a book-related function in New York.

But it's a bit of bad form if she spoke with Piers Morgan. It might help if DoY Sarah could find someone discreet and reputable who could help her with style, image and etiquette advice. She doesn't need to completely change her personality, but there is seemingly a learning curve issue. Good luck to her and her charitable projects.

Sarah wrote an open letter in connection with the #HelloToKindness campaign:

The best open letter for #HelloToKindness.

muriel 02-12-2019 04:38 AM

I have to agree with the point that Sarah is making. The tabloids are trying to portray Catherine and Meghan at war, just as they did with Diana and Sarah. Obviously happy families don't generate clicks in the way that warring women do. Having said that, two comments:

> In recent weeks, the DM seems to have dropped their story about Catherine and Meghan not getting on. The Markle's appear to make better copy!

> A lot of the "hate" that Meghan is apparently facing seems to be generated on social media. The problem with social media is that everybody has the ability to voice their opinion, and often, that opinion, if anonymous, can often be driven by all sorts of frustrations and pressures none of which may be related to Meghan per se.
