One picture, attached to an article that was legally debunked written by Jane Gordon, is of Robert Palmer and Mary Ambrose taken in 1995 by a friend and future employer of Mary Ambrose. The woman who took the picture hired Mary Ambrose as her au pair the following year in 1996. Mary Ambrose is standing behind Robert Palmer in the picture, sporting short hair and holding a cocktail in one hand and food in the other. According to the woman who took the picture, Robert Palmer and his then wife, Susan Palmer, were in attendance at the party, which she and her husband were giving. They were friends with Robert Palmer. She also knew Mary Ambrose, and Ambrose requested an invitation to the party when she heard Robert Palmer was going to be there. She had met Robert Palmer previously and had a crush on him. The woman allowed her to attend the party and stated that when Robert Palmer arrived, Mary Ambrose proceeded to follow Robert Palmer around the party, resulting in the picture that she took. They definitely were not posing together, Mary Ambrose was following him in the background. She gave Mary Ambrose a copy of the photo, who proceeded to give it out to be attached to articles. The second photo of Robert Palmer and Mary Ambrose was a group shot taken by Richard Coble in 1999, a production assistant who worked for Robert Palmer. In this photo, Mary Ambrose is standing in front of Robert Palmer with her arms folded. According to Rod Adamson, who was also in the photo, the picture was taken in Hong Kong, when certain members of Robert Palmer's entourage followed him out to a private airfield to see him off on his flight. According to him, Mary Ambrose was part of the group that went to Hong Kong to see Robert Palmer's show and also part of the group that went out to the airfield to see him off. There were three other people that saw Palmer off, but were not in the picture. He mentioned that Susan Palmer was not in the picture because she was already in the helicopter.

Was Mary Ambrose the woman who sued the Estate of Robert Palmer featured in any of his video performances of Addicted to Love?

The answer is no, per EMI Records and Elizabeth Freund, the late Robert Palmer's publicist. Mary Ambrose did not appear in any videotaped performances of Addicted to Love. In fact, Mary Ambrose did not appear in any Robert Palmer videos at all. I am not trying to be rude, but Mary Ambrose was neither a model or a dancer. In pictures that I have seen of her, no offense, she is heavy set and not suited to either modeling or dancing. Mary Ambrose did contribute some backing vocals on Drive as well as backing vocals on Rhythm and Blues. It was known that Mary Ambrose was interested in entering the music business and Robert Palmer was kind enough to give her some experience in this range.

Is it true that Mary Ambrose Robert Palmers Estate Manager and sometimes date tried to sell a story to the tabloids stating that she and Robert Palmer had gotten secretly married in 1996?

Mary Ambrose was twenty-six years old at the time of Robert Palmers death, according to her late mother, Linda Ambrose. According to Mary Ambrose's brother Michael, she was born on June 9, 1977. For reasons that nobody could ascertain, Mary Ambrose herself and Mick Carter started announcing her age as thrity-six years old at the time of Robert Palmers death and that information got into print. Unfortunately for Mary Ambrose, people who did actually know her reported her correct age, ending the charade that she was a decade older.

Was Mary Ambrose who dated Robert Palmer in Paris with Robert Palmer when he died a Sun article stated this but I think they were wrong according to other info?

No she was not. At the time of Robert Palmer's death, he was no longer involved with Mary Ambrose romantically. The Sun article quote's Ambrose as calling the front desk of the Warwick de berri hotel and saying "My husband is not well. Call an ambulance. I beg you, call an ambulance." That conversation never took place as Mary Ambrose was not in Paris, France with Robert Palmer at the time of his death. What's more, Mary Ambrose was never married to Robert Palmer and he certainly was not her husband at any time. The person who was vacationing with Robert Palmer in Paris at the time of his death was Jack Bruce, in addition to which Robert Palmer was engaged to Geraldine Edwards by September of 2003, who happened to be one of the two inspirations for Penny Lane in Almost Famous, the other being Bebe Buell. Robert Palmer had been seriously dating her since his divorce from his second wife, Susan Palmer, in late 1999. Ambrose was not anywhere near Paris at the time of Robert Palmer's death.

What is Robert palmer's girlfriend Mary Ambrose doing now?

After the death of Robert Palmer, Mary Ambrose sued the Estate of Robert Palmer but did not prevail. Robert Palmer did die testate and although his Last Will and Testament was challenged by Ambrose, the Will eventually stood as written. Ambrose's final suit was brought in 2007, when her legal options were extinguised. Ambrose's luck did not hold after Robert Palmer's death and she is now serving time on a prison sentence for a 2011 conviction on a white collar crime. This is not her first time behind bars, she has also served time in 1997 and 2005. Most recently, Mary Ambrose has put up social networking sites alleging that she is living in Ticino, Switzerland residing in the home that she and Robert Palmer shared. Although Mary Ambrose resided with Robert Palmer as his estate manager and personal assistant, Robert Palmer was engaged to Geraldine Edwards at the time of his death, although he did date Ambrose prior to that. Also, the house was sold as part of the estate once it entered probate and was sold by Soteby's European/Swiss Real Estate Division in 2004, it's proceeds divided among the five Palmer children as were the wishes of the late Robert Palmer. Ambrose has most recently been living in Southern California according to members of her family prior to her incarceration. She will be elegible for parole in 2012, and more than likely will be released back into the community to spend the remainder of her sentence on parole. In 2011, Ambrose's parential rights were extingused by the State of California to her three children, born in 2001, 2002 and 2008 due to her competance as a parent. The children are now being reared by a relative of Ambrose's. None of the children belonged to Robert Palmer. Although Mary Ambrose has had her problems in the past, two of her cousins have backed her up on her most recent Web site, by the name of Susan and William. Although Ambrose has tried to present them as her sister and brother, they are in fact her cousins. William went so far as to claim that he is residing at the Palmer Estate with Mary Ambrose alleging still that Mary Ambrose did inherit the house. The house was in fact sold to a European Corporation in 2004. According to Mary Ambrose's uncle, Harvey Ambrose, his niece will not return to Southern California when she has completed serving her sentence. Ambrose has advised him that she will relocate to New York.

Did Mary Ambrose co-write love takes time on Robert Palmers Honey as she had said I thought he wrote it with Sharon O'neill who i was a fan of?

No, she did not. According to the liner notes on Honey, "Love Takes Time" was in fact written by Robert Palmer and Sharon O'Neill. According to Mary Ambrose's brother and many other witnesses, Mary Ambrose did not even meet Robert Palmer until late 1995. Honey was released in 1994. Mary Ambrose tried to claim credit for co-writing Aeroplane on Robert Palmer's Don't Explain. That song was written by Robert Palmer alone. Robert Palmer did allow her to do some back up singing on Rhythm and Blues and Drive, but on Rythm and Blues, B.J. Nash had to go over and correct Ambrose's contributions and on Drive Tina Ann Hart had to re-do Ambrose's contributions, also. Palmer did give Ambrose credit in the liner notes for both, though. At any rate, credit should be given where credit is due. Love Takes Time was co-written by Sharon O'Neill, not Mary Ambrose.

How did the rumor get started that Mary Ambrose the woman who sued the Estate of Robert Palmer was the sister of Christine Ambrose?

I am a friend of Mary Ambrose's brother, Michael. Mary Ambrose was born on June 9, 1977 in San Diego, California. She was raised in San Diego, California as well. I have read articles that state that Mary Ambrose was born in Ohio, but they don't specify the city. I don't know where they might have gotten their information, but it is not correct. In the same articles they state that Mary had five siblings. That information is not correct. Michael is Mary Ambrose's only sibling. Both Mary and Michael were born in San Diego. Their late father was a local weatherman and sometimes disk jockey who moved to San Diego in 1973.

What is the veracity of the article published by the Sunday Express titled Did Robert Palmer have an affair with Princess Diana The info does not seem right and it is amateurish Any info on this?

Yes, there is. The article "Did Robert Palmer Have An Affair With Princess Diana" was written by Camilla Tomely in 2010 and published in the Sunday Express. It was predicated on a blog posted by Ian Halperin, a professional Canadian Blogger, who posted this rumor on his web site. No affair ever took place between Robert Palmer and Princess Diana, per his publicist from the nineties, Suzanne Parkes. The alleged affair was to have taken place in 1994. Per Parkes, Robert Palmer had asked her to try and make an arrangement for him to meet Princess Diana socially. Parkes tried, but was unable to do so, stating that invitations to events with Princess Diana in attendence were extremely difficult to get invitations to, compounded by the fact that personnel representing the Royal House had final approval over all guest lists. Robert Palmer never did get to meet Princess Diana, per Parkes statement. There was no meeting and no affair. It was just a rumor. The article in general was ridden with errors throughout. The article states that Robert Palmer was living with Mary Ambrose, a past casual girlfriend of his in 1988. In 1988, Mary Ambrose was eleven years old. In addition to that, Robert Palmer was married to Susan Eileen Thatcher, his second wife, from 1979 till 1999. Mary Ambrose's family as well as Robert Palmer's friends and family have clearly stated that Robert Palmer met Mary Ambrose socially in 1995 in San Diego, California. Palmer and Ambrose dated on an informal basis from 2000 to early 2003, per both of Robert Palmer's publicists, Suzanne Parkes and Elizabeth Freud. Ambrose's family has also corroborated that information, as well as Palmer's family. Tomily then refers to Mary Ambrose as 'Robert Palmer's second wife and widow', following that up with a statement that Mary Ambrose had to take down her Facebook Account "amid allegations." As noted earlier, Susan Eileen Thatcher was Robert Palmer's second wife. Quite obviously, Robert Palmer and Mary Ambrose were never married. Both Suzanne Parkes and Elizabeth Freud have also publicly stated that Robert Palmer had ended his relationship with Mary Ambrose by early 2003, and that he was engaged to Geraldine Edwards, who he had been dating since his 1999 divorce from his second wife at the time of his death. This information was also corroborated by Ambrose's family as well as Palmer's. And according to Michael Ambrose, Mary Ambrose's brother, who was attempting to ameliorate some of the misreports about his sister, of which there were many, Mary Ambrose never had a Facebook account to take down. According to him, with no offense intended, Mary Ambrose is not computer literate, and had no original Facebook account to remove. The final line of the article is 'Mary Ambrose was unavailable for comment last night.' According to Michael Ambrose, Mary Ambrose was by then living with their mother in Coronado, California with her three children and in fact no attempt was made to contact his sister for comment to start with. The veracity of this article is poor, the information provided in the article mainly incorrect, from beginning to end. Elizabeth Freud has publicly debunked this article posthoumously on behalf of her late client, Robert Palmer.

Why did the late Robert Palmers manager Mick Carter make so many errors in reportage after Robert Palmers death?

It can be chalked up to a lack of knowledge about his client. Although Carter was personal friends with Robert Palmer, he did not know a lot about his personal life and that is where the reporting errors cropped up. They started with Carter reporting Mary Ambrose as Robert Palmer's partner vacationing with him in Paris at the time of his death. Robert Palmer's companion at the time of his death was Geraldine Edwards. The reason for this misreport was that Carter and Ambrose were very close and had a child together in 2001. According to Carter, he took Ambrose at her word, and announced Ambrose's name to the press. In addition to this, Carter announced Robert Palmer's divorce date from Susan Palmer as 1991. The correct divorce date was in 1999. He also quoted that Robert Palmer was in "Perfect Health" prior to his death. That was not correct. Robert Palmer was suffering from Hypertension and was being treated medically for that condition. Jack Bruce, another of Mick Carter's client's, was vacationing with Robert Palmer in Paris, France at the time of his death, not Mary Ambrose. And finally, Mick Carter reported that Robert Palmer was only married once and had only two children. Robert Palmer was married twice and had five children. His final reporting faux pas was telling the press that Robert Palmer was to be buried at his home in Lugano, Switzerland. That is not correct. There was a Memorial Service for Robert Palmer in Lugano, Switzerland, however, Robert Palmer was buried in London, England.
