I agree very much, I have discovered this hard truth since graduating from university myself! Trades are the way of the future; there are too many university degrees and not enough jobs, especially in the humanities. Good for Prince Andrew for jumping on the bandwagon and recognizing this.

Hmm. It seems that for all the sniping and Air Miles Andy jokes the Government still knows which side of their bread is buttered and called on Prince Andrew to do what he does best. Royal diplomacy, so that they don't have to resort to diplomatic glad-handing.

I know that human rights activists are all a'flutter about it but sometimes I have to believe that our way is not the right way for everyone. Democracy is an hereditary custom for us, we have learnt it and we have lived it, as did our parents, grandparents and so on. Our style of government has continued to evolve over time . . . hey women even got the vote, but that is our system. It is not Bahrain's.

His Royal Highness will be attending a number of events to do with GREAT British Week during his visit as well, which is aimed to focus on core priorities including including Education, Young People & Skills & Entrepreneurship.
But, while Prince Andrew is the highly visible front, I am sure the government is trying to put their case for Human Rights, etc. via diplomatic dialogue. An international Royal Snub would merely create more distance and less opportunity for dialogue of any description.

The Express are hoping to have the video online tomorrow.

This is such a good cause - I wish PA lots of luck and best wishes for working to get young people into employment.

I've seen the pictures elsewhere - the guy is standing there with his hands in his pockets - some romance!

I think this is a wind-up against Fergie.

The tone of the article is ambiguous. Prince Andrew can do whatever he wishes.

I agree. He's single and a minor Royal and can-within reason-date whomever he wants.

Since his divorce, Prince Andrew has dated lots of models, most notably Angie Everhart which was reportedly a serious relationship.

He likes models and socialites like most men in his position.
