I have always admired and respected the Duke of York. The British tabloids give him a hard time but HRH has always been a friend to Canada and it's nice when he speaks so fondly of his time at Lakefield College School in Lakefield, Ontario.

The Duke of York is a great man.

yes, I've been realizing it lately. At the beginning I didn't like him very much but now that I've been following his activities more closely, he's been growing on me

The Duke's specialities within the UK seem to be encouraging technology and empowering young people in pursuit of high-tech careers.

When he stepped down from his role as trade ambassador it was announced that he would be working with helping young people in pursuit of jobs/careers etc.

Mail Online mea culpa. Sort of.

The Mail Online backs down...
It wasn't an error, negligence, or a hatchet job by the journalist, just a "misunderstanding". Twice.

Clarifications and corrections | Mail Online

11 February 2013


Clarifications and corrections:
The Duke of York

Articles of 7 and 14 May 2012 said that the Duke of York had demanded a private plane, travelled in a chauffeur-driven Rolls-Royce and snubbed free accommodation for his official Diamond Jubilee visit to India.

We now accept that the Duke had no personal involvement in the decision to charter the plane, did not travel in a Rolls, and that the British High Commissioner’s residence was deemed too small for his party on this occasion.

We apologise to the Duke of York for the misunderstanding.

The comment section is disabled "for legal reasons". I wonder whether that could possibly mean Prince Andrew threatened to sue the paper?
In any case, this is hardly going to undo the damage done because how many are going to read the correction? Fewer than the original article, that's for sure.

He doesn't look so good. I think it's his hair and he seems really pale or is it just the lighting. Must of been a formal do he is wearing a tux.
