Agreed. I remember the fire at Windsor Castle and Andrew being on site and helping to remove things. He was there at the time because he was doing research on something. Some journalists sneered, "What could he possibly be researching?"

The Duke of York

I love that he's proud to post pictures of his family on his site. I do wish the rest of the royal family would personalize the site and make the viewers and public feel welcomed.

I agree. It's a great site and it's obvious that he is very proud of his two daughters. That's a great sign in a man!

JMO but I disagree. I think posting personal pics just invites the press to be more intrusive.
In fairness I should say that I also disaagree with people posting personal pics on Facebook and other social media. I dont think they understand the amount of privacy they give up for themselves, family and friends.

Well, I really don't mean the royals should post very personal photos on the Monarchy website but at least help give the site a more welcoming feel to it. I liked the way the Danish royals had their website, especially Frederik & Mary. They seem to be really proud to show off their beautiful growing family. They also update their site with official portraits. The British royal family really don't take many official portraits or official photos and freshen up their site. I think the site is too dull.

Okay, I got off track here, lol.

I have tosay I don't see why Andrew needs his own website when Anne, Edward and Sophie don't. I can see why Charles has his own for him adn his family.
I wonder how much it costs...

It is a futile exercise. People have already formed their opinion about Prince Andrew and are unlikely to change them.

I can set up a website right now and it costs didley squat. Andrew already has staff, all of whom must be computer literate so he doesn't have to hire anyone new.

The same could have been said about Charles and Camilla in the 90s, but the two have gone on to revitalize their images. Andrew's made mistakes, but he's trying to draw focus to what he's done well.

It you read the royal central article (link in post#474 by me) it says that the costs are met privately.

Prince Charles is the Crown Prince. He is somewhat useful. He tries hard to be perceived as the valuable asset to the UK, tries hard to endear himself and his current wife to the British public like cheap present loving UK politicians.
Prince Andrew was just a spare. Now he is just a useless member of the British royal family, who carries some engagements on behalf of the British royal family. The aforementioned engagements may come to an end once Prince Charles ascends the throne. The same future may await Prince Henry after this summer.
