The Duchess

Does anyone else out there feel sorry for Fergie?
I find it pretty disgusting that she was only given about 21,000.00 a year to live on and then constantly criticized
every time she tried to find a career.
This latest incident was an obvious entrapment set up by a Tabloid sting, she did not seek these people, they courted her for sometime,
tempting her with money.
If the Queen of England was smart she would have made sure that the mother of her grandchildren was given a
substantial allowance so she didn't have to go out begging.
I am not suggesting that the Duchess is with out blame, but I do think she was desperate and no one was helping her.

This excerpt is from The Mirror in the UK.

"It has been four years since their divorce was finalised, but Prince Andrew and Fergie have remained the best of pals.

And yesterday the unique bond between the royal “odd couple” was evident again – as Andrew pardoned his ex-wife’s latest monumental indiscretion.

He told her he forgave her after she was exposed in newspaper sting operation trying to sell an introduction to him to a bogus businessmen for £500,000.

And in an astonishing show of loyalty to the woman he has loved for 25 years, the Duke of York promised she could stay in his house “as long as you like”.

After emotional talks with the couple’s daughters Beatrice and Eugenie, he has vowed to dig Fergie out of her financial problems and help her to recover from the depths of despair.

It will shock royal courtiers and annoy his parents, particularly Prince Philip, who wanted Andrew to make a clean break after their divorce in 1996.
But many will welcome the move at a time when friends fear she may be “suicidal”. Those closest to her say she has been a “quivering wreck” since the scandal broke."


Maybe it's time the Media in the UK started investigating something more important and egregious, like BP and the oil spell in the Gulf.

The British tabloids seem to be the most salacious in the world. God forbid they write about anything real.

Ah, but spewing venom is so much more interesting than spewing oil.

I feel for her!! She was hung out to dry! I guess being English, not to mention a princess, and an independent fireball type person isn't a good mix!!!
