I doubt it would change what is happening staff wise at the Palace, the Royals are always getting gifts etc.

By the way there not tacky
What a well reasoned and absolutely ordinary explanation royal rob. And judging by how quickly the "kids" around here acquire cutting edge technology, it's not even conspicuous consumption.

The Daily Mail just can't decide if Andrew is a Victim or a Villain. They led the media lynch mob against Andrew after he is one of several prominent men named as sexual predators in a private civil suit in the US. Truth is not the issue here, paper sales are, and the DM happily made hay while the sun shone accusing him of not even showing any remorse for sins. Tried and convicted by the DM.

Then came a story that showed him in a shockingly good way so they reported it.Their use of the word "after" in the headliner is an attempt to slime their way out of their stand by intimating the story came after the accusations, perhaps trying to rehabilitate his image? Yet the article itself makes it clear this story predates their very own slime attack.

However, Andrew can do no right in the eyes of the DM so then comes this absurd article about Andrew's Apple watch being somehow connected to the bureaucratic royal retrenchment and we have forum members putting forth Andrew as the face of royal budget cuts, twirling his metaphorical moustache and checking his watch as he oversees the eviction of dismissed servants out into the street!

Give us a break, the DM is quite bad enough without our own members getting carried away.

Andrew may not alway make wise choices, but that does not mean he is evil, and he certainly hasn't "brought shame on the BRF". That was the DM and it's cohorts, ably assisted by those who have spent decades denouncing the York family for every real or imagined sin.

Unlike Mr Dershowitz, it is a given that Andrew will not be suing the DM et al for defamation and libel. Shame that!

The Duke of York was installed as the new chancellor of Huddersfield University yesterday; and he gave the Vulcan salute as a farewell to the outgoing chancellor, Sir Patrick Stewart! Prince Andrew gives Vulcan salute to Patrick Stewart at university ceremony | UK news | The Guardian

I noticed on Twitter that there was a birthday party for Sir Patrick Stewart yesterday as well, and Sarah and Andrew were both there. Sarah was also at Huddersfield College a few weeks ago, choosing designs for Andrew and Sarah's charity, Key to Freedom. They are both involved in the college.

It is no wonder that Beatrice's mouth is open so often (along with the wide open eyes), so many pictures of Andrew show him laughing with his mouth wide open .... very unattractive. I'm not really trying to be mean but it is interesting that HM has seemed to always be so aware of what she is doing (how she appears) and it doesn't seemed to have rubbed off on Andrew in the slightest.

Of course, we only see the pictures that the papers and the paps want us to see. I'm sure that there are just as many, if not more, pictures taken where they look as decorous as can be. It's just that the papers, especially the Daily Fail, have it in for the Yorks and publish the most unflattering pictures they can find.

Do you think he was very angry when this happened?

Prince Andrew in command at Buckingham Palace says EPHRAIM HARDCASTLE | Daily Mail Online



Two years ago, armed police failed to recognise him as he strolled in the gardens and ordered him to lie face down. A friend gave him a St Christopher medallion inscribed: ‘I am the Duke of York.’

It would be rather insulting to not be recognized on the grounds of the place one grew up in and lived in for years.

Not just their 'National Day' but the 50th anniversary of their independence from the Malay Confederation.
