I have to admitt I do like the christmas card it's something different and it is kind of funny. But the thing is: it was made by Sarah during their family trip to India, so I don't think it's a 100% fun card but one with traditional clothes they wore to show their respect for the country they visited.

I hope some day Beatrice and Eugenie will look back on the photo with fondness. Personally, I think it was a really interesting photo and so Andy, a fun loving person at heart. It does take a brave man to put on that turban, and even braver for letting 500 of nearest and dearest to see it.

He is indeed a brave person to wear the turban and send it as a Xmas card...a great sense of fun.

Yes, I agree with Iceflower. The clothes are traditional North Indian wear and are very vibrant. Perhaps a visit to India, will change everybody's opinion.

The jollity on Prince Andrew's face is what makes it look amusing. Did anyone else notice the sunset and sunrise background themes?

STAFF and pupils gave a royal welcome to Prince Andrew when he officially opened a new sports centre.

Thanks, Avalon, for the links and the photos. I think Prince Andrew is looking quite handsome these days. Seems to be pretty busy, too.

After all, Sarah's father said how much she was more in love with being part of the royal family than with Andrew. And her actions proved it.
I do not believe that Andrew was faithful during their marriage either to be honest. I just think he was better at covering it up.

Sarah made some bad choices when she was married, however, she has gotten herself out of debt on her own, with Andrew has raised two lovely daughters and has a great relationship with her ex husband.

I think people need to get over what happened almost 20 years ago. Obviously Andrew has.

I agree people do need to get over Sarah's past. Everyone of us has made mistakes in life. I think it's wonderful how Sarah and Andrew get along, they seem to have a happy family life. If we can accept Camilla as the Prince of Wales wife and love of his life. Than why can't we accept Prince Andrews and Sarahs relationship?

Some people here will not 'get over it', while ever Sarah want's the perks of married life, without the responsibilities.

Dublin supermarket shoppers got more than they bargained for today when the Duke of York today swept through the store.
Security was tight at Tesco Clare Hall as Prince Andrew was ushered down the aisles.
Around 50 startled shoppers tried to snap pictures of him on mobile phones as Andrew, the UK's Special Representative for International Trade and Investment, visited the Irish capital to highlighted trade links between Ireland and the UK.
