watch it! He's not and idiot and if you have no time for him why bother posting? What antics has Andrew done that are really no surprise to The Firm?

Prince Andrew in Melbourne

Hi everyone, i'm not sure if this has been posted yet, i couldn't see it anywhere. Prince Andrew is in Melbourne for a conference with two members of the Greek royal family.


Article from The Advertiser, Sept 27, 2005.

The king, the prince and the most unlikely conversation.

Once upon a time a king and two princes proceeded to leafy Ivanhoe in faraway Melbourne and posed for photographs on a school oval. The whole unlikely scenario was played out in a clearing mist early yesterday morning amid top security and no advance warning at Ivanhoe Grammar School.

Prince Andrew and King Constantine of the Hellenes are in Melbourne for the 2005 Round Square International Conference.

Round Square is an international network of schools and for a week students and staff from 19 countries will talk about unity, tolerance and understanding. King Constantine had to flee his homeland of Greece after a military coup in 1967 and now lives in London with his son, Prince Nikolas, who is also at the conference.

King Constantine is conference chairman and Prince Andrew, in Melbourne on a private visit, is a Round Square patron.

But Grand Final footy and the Ashes cricket were the hot topics of discussion yesterday as the conference was opened.

According to the BBC article, Good Morning America is going to be filmed at Buckingham Palace next week. Prince Andrew will be giving an interview about tourism on the program:

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/entertainment/4297698.stm



Palace date for US breakfast show

Diane Sawyer is a well-known Good Morning America presenter

US breakfast programme Good Morning America is to be broadcast live from Buckingham Palace and Windsor Castle in the UK next week.

The Queen has given her permission for the ABC show to film at her homes, and at Holyroodhouse, in Edinburgh.

Good Morning America is watched by around five million US viewers every day and it is hoped that the shows will boost tourism to Great Britain.

The Queen will be at Balmoral during the filming.

'Delighted'

A Palace spokesman said: "We're delighted that ABC has agreed to broadcast their flagship breakfast programme in the UK, especially at such an important time for the tourist industry.

The Queen will not be at Buckingham Palace during filming



"The Queen has given her approval."

The programmes will be filmed live at lunchtime UK time and the Duke of York has given ABC an interview about the tourism industry.

On Thursday ABC will broadcast from Windsor Castle's state rooms, including the grand Waterloo Chamber and St George's Hall, as well as St George's Chapel.

The following day the presenters will be at Buckingham Palace including in the Throne Room and the White Drawing Room, as well as at Holyroodhouse.

Ben Sherwood, executive producer of the show, said the programme was honoured to have been given permission by the Queen.

"ABC News will give millions of viewers an extraordinary, unprecedented live look inside the Royal Palaces. "We look forward to an unforgettable, live transatlantic television event."

Prince Andrew criticised

From the Daily mail
Prince Pompous in airport security row

Prince Andrew has been accused of arrogance after refusing to go through an airport security check.


He was prevented from boarding a Qantas jet to New Zealand because he would not be screened by guards at Melbourne airport in Australia. After a tense stand-off, he reluctantly agreed to be searched with a hand detector. The scan took ten seconds.


Airport and security officials expressed surprise at the prince's actions.

They believed he would have understood the importance of security in the wake of the London bombings.

A Group 4 security worker at the airport said: "Who does he think he is? What a pompous p****.

"Everyone has to go through security screening.

"He should be happy to do so and set an example." Officials said last Wednesday's incident showed no one was exempt from Australia's airport security procedures.

I'm actually surprised that Andrew - second son of her Majesty - was asked to go through security check when he is on an official trip representing his mother. If he had been on a private trip then maybe they could have asked him to go through the security check but on an official visit? Come on!! I can understand his reaction. I doubt that the officials at the Melbourne airport demand the same security check from their Prime Minister for example or from the chief of state of another country. Doesn't Andrew have diplomatic immunity?

flight

To be honest I don't care who you are security is for everyone. Does anyone know if people who fly on private jets have to go through security? I was thinking maybe that since he was on a public flight that was the difference.

My question is would they try that with the american president? I think it goes too far for the airport staff to call him pompus and arrogant, as it not something he is use to doing. I mean they have to think of his secerity, so they can't have just anyone running a scanner over him. Besides they also said he needed to be an example to other people I highly doubt there was any one else there but his entourage. Also I remember one time Prince Andrew forgot his passport at home when he went to the US(they had sent over later) and they trusted him. So I think if the US can trust him, then Australia (a member of the British Commenwealth) should too.

There is no diplomatic immunity when it comes to Australian airport security. The Prime Minister of Papua-New Guinea caused a stink when he had to undergo a security check at Brisbane airport earlier this year. It is disappointing that Prince Andrew chose to react in the way he did.

No what is disappointing is that the Australian officials acted the way they did,- I hardly doubt that their own prince, (hmm maybe they forgot that that Andrew is still THEIR prince as well???) would blow a country up that his family rules!

I suggest the next time John Howard comes to England that we give him and his aides a security search and see how well they like that...

I certainly understand Andrew's reaction, he is not only a public figure but the second son of the Queen of Australia (and Britain and Canada). Technically he is not a stranger to Australia, but the son of their head of state. And he was sent to a room to think about his attitude, that's quite condescending from the airport autorities.

The president of the u.s. doesn't fly comercial air. Maybe that was the problem if he was boarding with everyone else then maybe they treated him like everyone else. I wonder if Prince charles would have had to be searched?

i think Andrew's reaction was terrible. with the way the world is today, he should be setting an example. how long does it take to go through a security check, and the officials would probably have gone about it very quickly if he'd just co operated. shame on him!

There was also an airplane searching incident with the Prince of Asturias and Letizia before their wedding. They didn't want to be searched either.

I'm pretty sure that if it is the law, Bush or any other American President, would not refuse to do it. If it has to be done, then EVERYONE should do it.
