(This has already been posted on another thread so apologies for duplication)

It is a really balanced article and instead of the negative Telegraph/Mail angle, it focuses on the fact that DoY is rubbish at letting us all know (particularly the press) what his schedule is. It says there are criticisms of DoY's office.

I think that HMQ and PoW need to help sort that out cos it is doing some damage.
This was interesting. Whatever Andrew's motivation, its not a help to the monarchy. The days when royals can do as they will without any scrutiny or accountability are gone.

I haven't heard about it either. It sounds like a brilliant idea though. I've always thought that there should be more to education in our schools. I think giving kids bigger and greater opportunities through their schools would properly prepare them for the world.

Strangely one of the first schools to join this organisation in Australia was my old boarding school and my brother's school as well so I have been hearing about this organisation for about 30 years now.

Andrew has also a connection to Outward Bound - both of which have strong links back to Gordonstoun but most people only think of Edward and the DoE Awards with this sort of thing (Philip had been patron of both DoE and Outward Bound of course).

On October 11 the Duke of York, on behalf of the Queen, presented the Chatham House Prize at the Award Ceremony in the Banqueting House, Whitehall, London.

This year's winner was Hillary Clinton who received the prize "in recognition of her significant and impressive contribution to international diplomacy as US Secretary of State and her work on behalf of gender equality and opportunities for women and girls".

There has been speculation this past summer, because Sarah went to Balmoral the weekend immediately after Beatrice's 25th birthday.

There has been no announcement - just rumours and speculation.

Situation then is - maybe - but probably not.
