Oh Fergie, you’ve really done it this time baby
Fergie has done it again and this time there won’t be any more agains – ever.
The royal family and the British public have had a gutful of the red headed bombshell they never really came to terms with in the first place, which is surprising considering her family’s royal and aristocratic background.
Sarah, Duchess of York is a direct descendant of King Charles II and she has known the Queen and the royal family since she was small child. Her Father, Major Ronnie Ferguson, was Prince Philip’s polo manager and the two men were great mates.
But things have changed; Fergie and Randy Andy got a divorce but remain living together even after Fergie was photographed having her toes sucked by her financial advisor.
Prince Phillip once said: “What’s the point of her!”
Well Phillip, I’ll that a step further: What’s the point of you and the royal family, mate?”
The News of the World’s sting worked.
Fergie, broke, sad, obviously under the influence of something or other fell for it hook line and sinker and in doing so brought the royal family into further disrepute.
She offered the fake “businessman” unfettered access to Andrew in return for half a million quid; she didn’t tell Andrew and asked the “businessman” to keep the deal private.
Now all this is fodder for gossip writers and others, and it must be excruciating for the Queen and the handful of her family who have retained any dignity at all – after all Fergie isn’t the only member of that family to have mucked up.
In Australia it’s grabbing headlines not because of the royal connection - the royals these days are nothing more than celebrities – but because in the main the royals have ceased to be of any note or significance to us. Whenever one of them pops in to see us the reaction is a big yawn.
So we should put the royals out of one of their miseries and sever the remaining connection by become a republic.
They will be then become a total irrelevance to this country and we can wish them good luck for their future.
