I really think the DM is just using it as an excuse to reignite the Charles v Andrew fight again.
The BBC's Nick Whitchell said it was more likely Charles and Anne will be seen with the Queen in future

That could very well be. They've chosen a story line and are sticking to it: Good prince/Bad prince.

I don't think Charles will fill that role he has his own full agenda. I do see Andrew taking on some work with the Queen along with other family members

Interestingly, there was much on YouTube yesterday about Prince Andrew's angry rebuttal of any quarreling between himself and Charles and an emphatic denial that Charles has ever treated his daughters as anything other than loved nieces. I am interested at the timing.

A casual look at the diaries of both Charles and Anne would show that as an exercise in futility. I think we will see more of the Cambridge's, Harry, Andrew, Edward and Sophie.

I think we will also see a slight shuffling of duties between those family members, and largely dependent on who would be the most "appropriate" member to accompany HM. We may also see a bit more of Beatrice and Eugenie occasionally accompanying their grandmother as they already have.

The Duke of York will take a stroll down memory lane when he revisits his old school during a trip to Moray today.

Pupils at Gordonstoun will show Prince Andrew around its sprawling grounds on the outskirts of Lossiemouth.

The public school has educated generations of royals, including his older brother Charles.

The Duke of York first attended there in 1973, when he was just 13.

Gordonstoun principal, Lisa Kerr, said that the school’s youngsters had lined up a host of activities to keep their special guest amused.

"Prince Andrew wants to trademark his own project.
He has applied to the Intellectual Property Office (IPO) to register the name Pitch@Palace, the Dragons’ Den-type initiative he set up to help budding entrepreneurs."

The comments are absolutely scathing with many not even understanding what he is trying to do - thinking he is trying the trademark BP itself rather than an organisation.

That's because the title of the article is implying exactly that - that Pr. Andrew is trying to trademark the name of the palace. The DM is deliberately trying to create that impression.

A rare "political" comment by a member of the Royal Family : Prince Andrew, who has been long involved with promoting British international trade, speaks to the BBC on how UK businesses should "make best of Brexit" and focus on other markets overseas besides the EU-27.

I thought members of the BRF weren't supposed to publicly voice their political views? Charles has stated his before, but has been criticised for doing so. I'm not sure if Andrew should have stated his views on Brexit, given that it's such a topical and debated issue and that it's an unwritten rule that royalty and politics traditionally don't go together.

This isnt political as it is post the referendum. Royals could not say anythig that could influence the vote.

What he has said is true - there are risks and there are opportunities. No harm in stating the obvious.

Regardless if they were in favor or against a Brexit, I am sure all British will agree that they have to make the most the new situation. The comments of the duke seem sensible enough, though rather platitudinous. The latter is not a bad thing for a comment on such a sensitive matter by a royal.

Andrew has simply stated an obvious fact - there are business opportunities outside of the EU.

The only royal who actually can't say anything political is the monarch. The rest are able to do so but generally don't. Same as those royals who are also commoners are eligible to vote and/or stand for election to the House of Commons but again they don't. The royals who are also commoners by the way (Camilla, Kate, Harry, Beatrice, Eugenie, Sophie, Anne, Birgitte, Katherine, Michael, Marie-Christine and Alexandra). The others (Philip, Charles, William, Andrew, Edward, Richard and Edward) are peers of the realm and until 1999 were eligible to sit in the House of Lords with only Richard and the elder Edward not eligible to take up a seat in the newly reformed Lords - they chose not to do so but could have done so - as Earl Snowdon did for instance).

Thank you for the clarification, Iluvbertie. I had always presumed that all members of the immediate BRF had to steer clear from political discussions. I knew that other royals were eligible to vote, but I just didn't realise that it was only HM who technically wasn't allowed to air her political opinions.
