London Lite Friday, 16 October 2009 11 A PARTY at a five-star hotel with the Presleys would be most peoples idea of a dream night. But for Sarah Ferguson, this was austerity in action as she celebrated her 50th birthday with a so-called budget celebration. If this is a credit crunch birthday, we cant wait for her 51st...despite the former Duchess of York claiming she was toning down the extravagance of her party, she still hired a room at Londons plush Lanesborough Hotel. And she invited Elviss daughter Lisa Marie Presley, who brought her mum Priscilla. Fergies ex-hus- band Prince Andrew showed up and the couples daughters, Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice, were there in miniskirts and high heels. Socialite Tamara Beckwith and Fergies rumoured boyfriend, frozen food tycoon Geir Frantzen, were also in attend- ance. Fergie did her best to forget her alleged financial difficulties by bopping until 2am. Taking a leaf out of their mothers book, Eugenie and Beatrice then headed on to Annabels nightclub where they continued partying. The bash came as the Duke of York was being advised by auditors PriceWaterhouseCoopers on cutting his budget to improve his image.
