Not sure if this is the right place to post this, but I found the most fascinating video of Sarah and Andrew just before they got married:



It's like a moment frozen in time, where they're young, happy, carefree, in love. So touching, I thought, seeing them larking about together, almost as if the cameras aren't there.*
Andrew seems mildly (and rather sweetly) embarrassed by Sarah using his pet name, but I can't work out what he says... Bunjee? Punjee? Can anyone shed light?*
I also enjoyed the conversation about Drones' (spelling?) restaurant which sounds wonderfully Wodehousian (The Drones Club, of course, being Bertie Wooster's regular haunt). Does anyone know anything about this place and whether it still exists?
And finally, does anyone think that Andrew sounds at times rather like one of Hugh Grant's diffident, embarrassed (but rather dishy) posh chaps from his romantic comedy roles? And I mean that as a compliment!*
A wonderful video, I think, though certainly tinged with a great deal of sadness - they seem such a wonderful couple, and it seems to me such a tragedy that their marriage had to end.

Sorry for rolling back the years, but I remember a while back a member
was wondering if there was any footage of Andrew and Sarah's engagement interview, I came across this.



I hope it's ok to put this here.

Sara and Andrew were so cute! They really believed in the fairy tale at the end of the tabloid garbage.

interesting the words used by the american voice over when describing the newspapers - "relentless" and "stalking" and that was 1986.

Doesnt change, regardless of the havoc the media and paps have caused.

Those two videos are fascinating. It is the first time I've seen their relationship in a romantic light, because all you hear about is the divorce and all sorts of troubles. I suspect Andrew was attracted to her vulnerable side. He senses she might need him, but is also drawn to her, because she has her own personality. He tries to give her advice on who to take advice from, but when she asserts herself, he doesn't push the point.

Very touching to see these videos.
[I wonder if the 'pet name' was "Budgie"?]

"Budgie" - you just might be right. That sounds more like a pet name than something like Bunjee and may be why Sarah used that name in her books. That would be so sweet.

Prince Andrew's great-great-great grandfather was King Christian IX of Denmark.

Christian IX was both Andrew's great-great-grandfather and great-great-great-grandfather.


Great-Great-Grandfather = Andrew - Philip (father) - Andrew (grandfather) - George I of the Hellenes (great-grandfather) - Christian IX of Denmark (Great-Great-Grandfather)

Great-Great-Great-Grandfather = Andrew - Elizabeth (mother) - George VI (grandfather) - George V (great-grandfather) - Alexandra (great-great-grandmother) - Christian - (great-great-great-grandfather)

We often forget that Andrew, and his siblings, have dual descent from both Queen Victoria and Christian IX through Elizabeth and Philip.

The other source of Christian in the BRF would be Prince Christian of Schleswig-Holstein who married Princess Helena - daughter of Queen Victoria but it is more likely to come from Christian IX.

Alexandra used Christian as a name for her eldest son - Albert Victor Christian Edward and George V used it as a name for his eldest son - Edward Albert Christian George Andrew Patrick David.

Otherwise it doesn't appear to have been used.

As Andrew is named for Philip's father (Andrew), Elizabeth's father (Albert), Philip's great-grandfather (Christian) and Elizabeth's great-grandfather (Edward VII - could be for her uncle of course) it seems there is some symmetry in his names.
