I agree, many people on the property programmes, say I built or I did such and such, when in fact they financed it and that is all. At least be honest about it! I can't quite see Edward prancing about in a pinny with a feather duster in his hand... or perhaps I can!

"Prancing about" being the key phrase here!

Good for her if she doesn't lead people to believe she's an "ordinary" housewife who cooks/cleans/cares for her own children. As Skydragon said, be honest about your lifestyle. Again, I'm just making an assumption. She might do exactly what she says she does. And Edward, too.

Actually I can see them doing some of the housework still, nothing surprises me with those two. I don't believe your statement Bella about Sophie not lifting a finger to do anything, or being dishonest in what she says about cooking/cleaning/or caring for their children.

I have met them before and they seem a very happy and down to earth couple.

Thanks for the link Claire about Prince Edward in New York.

Must be a filthy house then, with Edward away so much and Sophie admitting Edward did it.

Nothing wrong with having a dusty house, I should know.

Back on topic now, does anyone know how long Prince Edward US trip is??

From the 'article'
Quote:
No sooner had the magazine appeared than Buckingham Palace let it be known that it was seen as "a serious error of judgment" - which is right royal understatement.
I have searched and searched and I have been unable to find ANY statement from BP regarding this. The Mail needs to get over it, because they are in danger of becoming a laughing stock!

He is today in Mississippi and then takes a week off. I'm hopeing that this involves a trip to Denmark. Then next Friday he is back to California before going on to Canada for a bit.
He was on Fox and Friends earlier with Miss America.

Thanks for all those links Claire the article from the New York affair was quite patronising but a snapshot of 'life on the road'. It must be difficult to be all things. The Hello thing seems to have taken on a life of it' s own I must say I was surprised with the pre wedding interview but the article in the paper says it all and I hope it doesn't happen again.

Thank you Claire for the Fox link. Is he one of the few royals that gives interviews on morning television when outside the UK? I remember in 2006 when he was in Australia appearing on Sunrise.

This was enjoyable to watch. He seems to have some of Prince Charles's mannerisms but doesn't sound so "posh" as either of his brothers. Thank you, Claire. You always seem to find nice stuff.

I think that it is quite a coup for the Duke of Edinburgh Awards to be the Miss America Charity next year.
