What is going on in Andrew's case is a Testimonium de Auditu (a case based on hearsay). "A friend of a colleague of mine thought that the boy often had blue and bruised spots" (via-via suggesting there might be domestic violence). This is not accepted as evidence and might also not hang like a cloud above someone.

So Buckingham Palace is the one being consistent here: there is no case against the Duke, allegations uttered in media as a fall-out from another case are categorically denied and it was time for this promotion in rank given the "timetable" for such promotions.

They are both fully honorary. It is not that the Duke of York suddenly is expected in the Admiralty to discuss tactics and strategies of Her Majesty's fleet.

Prince Michael has never been in service of the Navy and his appointment in the Royal Navy Reserve is therefore honorary. The Duke of York however was a high-ranked naval officier by profession.

Duke of York opens new travel tech incubator - The Wharf
Quote:
The UK’s first-ever incubator for travel technology startups has been opened by the Duke of York on the South Bank.

Traveltech Lab offers workspace for 30 people within the riverside offices of London & Partners, the Mayor’s promotional company for London in partnership with The Trampery, a Shoreditch-based social enterprise.

At the opening, Gatwick Airport was confirmed as the first corporate partner of the new incubator.

More than 100 companies applied for space, including businesses from Germany, China and the US.

L&P CEO Gordon Innes said: “As well as being one of the world’s foremost tourism destinations, London is also a leading global hotspot for tech innovation.

The Duke of York bridles at the question. “Excuse me, what the hell am I doing now?” says the indignant fifth in line to the throne. All I asked was whether he would make a good entrepreneur.

“I am being entrepreneurial by setting this up,” Prince Andrew waves his arm around the room. “So therefore, yes, I am a serial entrepreneur. My staff are giggling because they get really fed up with the good ideas that I come up with.” He affects a voice: “Oh, we’ve got to do another one now, have we?”

We are sitting in the most unregal of settings: Wayra, an incubator space for fledgling companies off Tottenham Court Road. It has exposed ceilings, chipboard seats and orange picnic tables piled with mounds of cake. At least the Smeg fridges have a Union Jack design.

Prince Andrew spotted wearing a new £12,000 Apple Watch at Buckingham Palace event* | Daily Mail Online

This at a time when the Queen/ Buckingham Palace grey men are being criticised for sacking long term staff and throwing them out of their homes! I believe that Andrew got this watch as a 'gift' from Apple, no-one else. He is an absolute disgrace!

Personally I don't see it as a big deal. All it tells me is that perhaps Andrew likes the newfangled gadgets fresh off the assembly line. Whether or not it was a gift or a purchase by Andrew, I would bet my last peanut butter cup that he can well afford it.

It's tacky but Andrew isn't exactly known for his smarts I doubt it occurred to him it would upset people. Probably a gift and it worked it got noticed and now Apple have some free publicity a Prince wearing their watch. I doubt it would change what is happening staff wise at the Palace, the Royals are always getting gifts etc.

While I'm not a Andrew fan I can't see anything wrong in getting a watch. My 2 sons have got their apple watch they can afford them and love new technology.
So he's got the dearest one big deal he's done far worse. He working with young people in start up business ( well I think it's something like that )so would be interested in any thing new

Why is he an absolute disgrace? I have seen these watches at the Apple Store over here in Dijon (in the Bourgondie) and they really look amazing. They cost between 400 and 600 Euro depending on the version. You will not get a Patek Philippe, a Breguet, a Jaeger-Le Coultre or a Vacheron horloge for that amount...




To balance Andrew's spending of 400-600 Euro somewhat. Here you see (then) Princess Máxima sporting a Patek Philippe horloge of... 23.000 Euro: http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...5&d=1380443772 So all by all, the Brits have a bargain with Andrew...
