Living With The Sins Of The Mother Or The Father

One of the problems of our modern society is the need for some people share their thoughts or give details of their private lives, which would best be kept private. From reality stars to royalty, there are some people who just can’t seem to resist the urge to share their thoughts or confess their ‘sins’, without appearing to care about the impact on their children or wider family. Sarah Ferguson, The Duchess of York is a serial offender in this respect and she has been at it again sharing what she thought about not being invited to the recent Royal Wedding.

Apart from her daughters rather wayward fashion sense the Duchess appears from all that is said to have raised two very nice daughters. She clearly loves them and they love her. When Princess Beatrice was asked a little while ago what she wanted to do in the future, she said that she wanted to be a ‘Mini Mummy’. I suspect other members of the Royal Family choked over the cornflakes at that one (think toe sucking) but good on Beatrice for declaring publicly how much she loves her mother. I do wonder sometimes if the Duchess for one moment considers the effect of what she does or says on her daughters. However one looks at it, they are forced to live with the sins of their mother constantly being played out in public.

Why doesn’t the Duchess learn to be quiet. She may well be hurt that she wasn’t invited to the wedding but why say so. Why keep reminding people why she might not have been invited. (Trying to sell access to her ex-husband was the last indiscretion in a line of indiscretions). I don’t pass judgement on what the Duchess has done, I just don’t see why she would keep reminding us all. Is it really fair for the sins of the mother to be constantly revisited on the innocent daughters. Money might be part of her motivation, but surely her daughters deserve better?

Much has been made recently in the press of the use of super injunctions by some famous men to cover up their infidelity and ‘protect their families’. Although many people have screamed about their apparent hypocrisy over their sudden concern for their families, I can’t help thinking that the injunctions do at least prevent any child having to live with the sins of their father in the public eye. Seeing the sins of the mother played out in public in the case of the Duchess of York, I can only feel thankful for that.
