That's really strange, the last pic...I say how pathetic this is. The first picture she does not have hooded eyelids, but the last pic does. This does not happen. Someone may have hooded eyelids and then have surgery to remove the extra skin and give the eye a more "open" appearance.
This is such a blatant example of change and people just accept it as is...that it's Sarah Ferguson...

AP – A 'dress of tears' by Aminaka Wilmont hangs above the bed in Queen Mary II's bedchamber in Kensington …
Slideshow:Princess Diana's former home being rebranded 'The Enchanted Palace' By GREGORY KATZ, Associated Press Writer Gregory Katz, Associated Press Writer – Thu Mar 25, 11:52 am ET
LONDON – Princess Diana's former home, Kensington Palace, will be rebranded "The Enchanted Palace" Friday to lure tourists from other popular London sights, like Madame Tussauds waxworks and the Tower of London, where the Crown Jewels are displayed (behind very thick glass).
In this interactive age, it's not enough for a stately palace to offer royal art, staid banquet rooms, and roped-off thrones, so curators have opted for fashion, performance art, and a bit of Alice in Wonderland fantasy. The exhibit, meant to draw viewers into the lives of past palace residents, uses intense lighting, actors and musicians to set the mood. One man even coaxes sound from a saw with a violin bow.
The tone is set by the Room of Royal Sorrows. No, it's not about Diana and her fractured fairytale marriage to Prince Charles; it's a dramatization of the emotional torment of Queen Mary II as she tried in vain a produce an heir. It is set in her bedchamber, giving the display an unsettling authenticity. On the bed is a figure of the queen, dressed in blue, face hidden.
"The first time you walk into the room, it has an aura of sadness, but also incredible beauty," said designer Marcus Wilmont, part of the team that decorated the room and came up with the outfit worn by the mannequin representing Queen Mary. "She tried really hard, but she had many miscarriages. She was a very loved queen, and we wanted to try to capture her spirit."
The somber tone is set by dozens of antique glass bottles known as "tear catchers." In times of mourning, tears were put in the bottles "to catch the sorrow" even though they would soon evaporate, Wilmont said
Visitors are given a chance to leave a handwritten note stating the last time they cried.
Not every display is laced with tragedy. One of Diana's elegant ball gowns is on display, and Vivienne Westwood, one of Britain's most revered designers, came up with a fanciful — and fantastic — dress designed to be worn by a rebellious princess.
The room where British kings met with advisers, foreign diplomats and occasionally the public has also been redone, with a colorful new throne that visitors are encouraged to try out. A Room of Enlightenment features a bust of Isaac Newton topped by a Stephen Jones hat that includes a mock red apple, covered with rhinestones, to commemorate Newton's moment of illumination.
The exhibit also includes The Room of Royal Secrets and the Rooms of Lost Childhood, all to evoke the bittersweet nature of real royal life as lived, not imagined. Many royals are portrayed as lonely and isolated despite the magnificent sweeping views of Kensington Gardens and the multimillion dollar art collection that lines the interior palace walls.
"We really wanted to try something completely different that gave us a way to take a fresh look at the palace's history and the lives of the people who lived here," said Alexandra Kim, one of the curators of the two-year show. "We want people to connect with the emotions."

Here's a thought. Sarah (or was it Farah) claimed that she was scheduled to be at the World Trade Center the morning of 9-11 for a meeting. She claims that her limo pulled up to the WTC just after the first plane hit and that she just got back into the limo and ditched the meeting for her own safety.
What if that's a cover story? What if the real Sarah was indeed in one of the Twin Towers already and was one of the 3000 plus victims? Maybe that's why Harry left the wreath.
Actually Sarah Ferguson was the guest on Good Morning America that morning as they broke away to report the bulletin. I remember seeing the coverage, but I notice that particular part is difficult to find.

NEW YORK — The news came into Matt Lauer’s ear as he interviewed a Howard Hughes biographer on what felt like another slow news day in the summer of shark attacks and Chandra Levy.
“Go to commercial,” “Today” executive producer Jonathan Wald told him tersely. “Breaking news: A plane has hit the World Trade Center.”
That’s all anyone knew at 8:50 a.m. ET on Tuesday, Sept. 11, 2001. “Good Morning America” hurried out of an interview with Sarah Ferguson, CBS’ “The Early Show” cut off a cooking segment. Lauer and hundreds of other TV journalists in New York, Washington and southwest Pennsylvania didn’t know it then, but they were about to cover the biggest story of their lives.
From the transcript of Larry King Live Sept 11, 2002: (It's confusing as they jump back and forth from video clips and Ferguson doesn't answer the question asked.)
SARAH FERGUSON, OFFICES DESTROYED AT WTC: Well, I just woke up, and the girls and I work up together and we just went, you know, we've got to remember. You know, it's about thinking how lucky we are that we're here today, you know? KING: What's the status now of the charity? Your offices are gone; what happened?
FERGUSON: Well, thanks to Credit Suisse First Boston and then Michael Bloomberg, we now have regrouped the charity and we're starting again. And we're now rebuilding, not only in Afghanistan, but all over America, we're giving children a chance to dream and grow.
And we feel it's very strong because September 11 has really given us an opportunity to say, listen, OK, there's great devastation and great disaster but, you know what? We've got to give our children a place to have their dreams and a chance for them to know that there is a way forward and not -- it's not just devastation, there is a future.
KING: You were, as memory serves me, you were at "Good Morning America," right, the morning of the tragedy?
FERGUSON: I was, Larry, yes. I was just leaving "Good Morning America" studios on my way down to my office on the 101st floor. And John S. Sullivan (ph), who works for me, suddenly turned to me and said, look up at the screens, you know, this devastation is happening.
And I just really couldn't believe what with going on. I didn't really understand what was happening. I thought that air traffic control couldn't have made such a mistake. I didn't really think of terrorism.
And then, suddenly, the devastation hit and I just -- I simply was lost for words, and I didn't really know what we could do. The most important thing for me was to think, what happened to Cantor Fitzgerald, because we were lucky enough that Howard and Allison (ph) Lutnick had given us an office within Cantor Fitzgerald. And to think of all those people there, I just wanted to help, but I didn't know what to do. It was such a difficult position to be in.
KING: Did you lose any staff that day?
FERGUSON: Well, we didn't -- I didn't lose any immediate staff, Larry. But what we lost were so many good colleagues and so many friends, because we were part of the Cantor Fitzgerald family. And Howard Lutnick has been amazing over these months and all over these years to give us an office space.
I'm in the middle of moving house this weekend, let me actually have a chance to sit and write something coherent about it. There is something very strange about that whole Good Morning America broadcast that morning, I've watched the first hour ahead of the bulletin several times and there were clearly doubles being used on that broadcast. I'll make a separate thread though, not to derail the convo.
Oh, gosh, Im tired of that... The same thing repeated over and over til saturation... I lost count how many times they said some personalities are related to my voivod, Vlad. How much truth is in all these? Not too much, Id say. But the attention and publicity matters, u see... PATTINSON, the TWILIGHT series, dark hero related to Vlad, another supposedly dark hero. Connect the dots. Bullsh*t! I said it before and I say it again now: the Dracula myth is zero and has nothing to do with Vlad. It was just an idiot's imagination, namely Bram Stoker's. Vlad was a man ahead of his time, a great leader, really charismatic and his gloomy side - excessively sometimes - was more the invention of his enemies. Even nowadays he is underrated and despised by many local idiots who swallow the official historical crap. Its like those white Americans (lets say an example) who, trying to seem more interesting and exotic - add a black person or a Native American one or both - in their family tree. I also mite be related to Vlad (eheee, Im dreaming) and noone would know that

How is it you feel that way about Vlad? I don't disagree and I suppose if today's history was not to be written by the victors, people of the future would be putting Papa Bush, Programmed Obama, the Rockefellers and the Rothchilds in the same category. So Vlad impaled, today our leaders do much, much worse.
