The Duchess of York has now settled unpaid bills after three firms who'd worked for her went to court in a bid to get their money, her spokeswoman said.
Two of the companies are known to be accountants MJ Brooks and Shades photographic studio. The third is an unamed law firm, though all refused to comment on the matter.
Sources close to Sarah – who struggled with debts in the Nineties - have emphasised that she isn't in any financial difficulty.
"I have no idea how it got to this stage, but there are no concerns about her personal finances, and to suggest otherwise would be wrong," one told the Daily Mail.
Her official spokeswoman said: "All of these matters have now been dealt with.
"The Duchess employs a team of accountants to deal with her personal finances.
"As far as her personal finances are concerned, this is a private matter."
