I v'e often thougt of  Fergie and Diana  as exoset missiles  aimed at the traditional
Royal  Family,  ie  the  Windsors
  but then   its  so nostalgic  to  see them together

Poor  Diana is gone,  now  Fergie is all we have left.

I think I read that  Oprah is  sponcering a  6 part series all about
Fergie  and part one  is  airing  next monday .....
so  like it or not  , Fergie is  going to be on the media  big time
for  some time to come .  .... !

Luckily  Prince William and  Catherine are starting a new chapter and what
a wonderful start they made with the wedding in April 2011
As time goes by, the eccentric  Fergie will  fade into history !!!!

Please don't compare Diana and Sarah in the same sentence.  They were two completely different women, different mistakes and motives for those mistakes.  The only thing they ever had in common was that they both married into the royal family.

Fergie is partly the reason why I am very pro royalty marrying fellow royalty, they understand the role!

I've got to agree with you. I know she was popular, but IMHO, Diana was no great shakes as a royal spouse either. She didn't understand the role, although she at least behaved with some decorum most of the time. Sarah doesn't understand the difference between being "down to earth" and being trashy ...

Why do you say Diana didn't understand her role?  I think she understood it very well.  Her role was not the cause of her problems, it was her marriage.

According to the Daily Mail, Fergies sister Jane has said she has 'different memories’ of their childhood. Jane said ‘She’s not lying, that’s her experience, but my experience was that Mum was a wonderful woman and loved us both enormously and did the best she could.’

What Jane has said sounds like something of a rebuff, albeit a gentle one, to me.

I was under the impression that they were still married !! Anyway, married or not, they still seem to be very "chummy'.
How come she still uses the title, and why on earth does she take offence at not being allowed into the inner royal circle any more ?
 Prince Phillip has been proven to be right a few times. Although he was quite keen on Diana in the beginning, he changed his opinion of her quite quickly. i think he realised Fergie for the disaster she turned out to be from day 1.

I think Fergie is probably the biggest Royal disaster after Edward Vlll. I say "after" because he was brought up to be King, and was a dismal failure, and also behaved very improperly for a "real"  member of the royal family, born and bred. Fergie was born, but certainly not bred.
Apparently she is trying very hard at the moment, through the media, to "recoup" her "image". She now blames her mother for for being responsible for her bad behaviour.
Really, does this woman have a brain ?

Since their divorce i've been waiting to see what would happen if Andrew should remarry.
Gawd, can you imagine the repercussions?
I wonder then if the new wife would take the title of Duchess Of York.

Oooooohhhhhhhh can you just see Sarah's face and watching the new wife attend family functions should just about do Sarah the world of good.
That's the only way I can see her letting go.

Sarah is known as Sarah, Duchess of York, because that's the traditional style to denote being the divorced wife of a peer.  It's no different than with us commoners -  when Mary weds John Smith she becomes "Mrs. John Smith" or just "Mrs. Smith".  If they divorce, she becomes "Mary, Mrs. Smith" or "Mrs. Mary Smith".  If John remarries, his 2nd wife then becomes "Mrs. John Smith" / "Mrs. Smith", while Mary's style is unchanged.  Said another way, only the current wife can be "The" Mrs. Smith - any former wives use a slightly different form to show that they are NOT the current wife.

So if Andrew remarried, his new wife becomes "HRH The Duchess of York" while Sarah would still be "Sarah, Duchess of York".  The only way Sarah loses this style is if SHE remarries.

 Yes,  had n't thought of that, why on earth has nt  Andrew remaried in all these years ?
that would kind of put the lid on Sarah and the media could focus on his new, glamorous wife.
but then,   Andrew and Sarah  been sharing a house  for years,
its all very  strange.

  you can bet  Andrew has exasperated his ageing parent Prince Phillip
no end over the years
(  spose  you could say ditto   Prince Charles  too  )

I think that even if he remarries, she will still be flogging the "Duchess of York" thing to death to promote herself. I think she is wearing a bit thin after the last disaster. The only magazines who are really keen on her are the cheap trashy gossip ones,  and Oprah Winfrey. She must really be scraping the bottom of the barrel if she has to have Sarah Ferguson on her show !!

More than likely she will PAVLOV as she won't let us forget that SHE was the original first wife.

Actually, it wouldn't surprise me if they did remarry, or at least stay single and faithful to each other. I really think Andrew still loves her, for whatever reason. I don't think anything will happen until Prince Phillip is no longer with us, though, and he just turned 90 ...

It turns out that both Fergies daughters make an appearance on this ghastly show she is flogging. I think for members of the Royal Family to appear on a show like this is a deplorable!!!

They have both openly had other "friends" so I don't see any reason to romanticise any "faithfulness" here because there isn't any.  It's a form of immaturity in my opinion.  They can't make a legitimate couple together, yet they can't make the appropriate break normal for divorced couples either. 

And Eddie, agree with you totally.  I can't believe those girls are going on that TV program.  I would have thought they would need permission from the Queen for this...obviously not.
