The first is certain. Clarence House has announced that Sir Michael Peat, long time principal private secretary to the Prince of Wales, is stepping down.
Sir Michael has been a significant part of palace life for 18 years having worked for both HM Queen Elizabeth as well as her son, Charles. A somewhat controversial figure, it seems that Sir Michael, an accountant by trade, leaves behind some very tight shoes to fill. Indeed.
The second is not so certain. Oprah Winfrey may be looking for someone else to star in 'Finding Sarah' on her new television network. The six-part programme is all about, you guessed it, Sarah Ferguson as she struggles, with the help of various professionals, to rehabilitate herself, her reputation, and her bank balance (perhaps not in that order) following her most recent indecent act.
Although the mogul is apparently denying it, the problem seems to be that the footage of Sarah's tearful trek through the dank forests of self-discovery is not very interesting. Really? Stay tuned.
