Oprah must be a secret Royals fan. She’s trying to save them from any more indiscreet money-grubbing on Sarah’s part.
Sarah’s pretty good at this sort of thing and will probably turn in a decent performance.
But if previous behavior is any indication, she’ll be in money trouble again in a few.
She's not saving the Royals. The Queen exlimpfies proper Royal behavior. She'd never appear on Oprah — she has no use for sob sisters. True Royals keep their upper lip stiff. The sniveling behaviour of Fergie (and Diana, before that) has done great damage to the monarchy.
(I realize that the U.S. fought a revolution, to create a republic -- so this Tory doesn't expect much sympathy on this forum. Just try to understand that the Queen symbolizes our (Britain, Canada, Australia, etc.) nation. Under our modern constitutional monarchies, the Queen is not a ruler -- Parliament is supreme. So long as the Royals behave like our present Queen, I want them around. If they start behaving like Fergie -- then I have no more use for them.)
She’s a social climber like all celebrities. Hate the establishment until they get to be a part of it.
