I totally agree! That was a really bothersome photo.

Is Prince Andrew currently involved in a serious relationship? Is anyone in this forum into astrology?
Not that much. I use it as a lark. Here's a free site that's interesting.

alabe.com

I think Sarah learned a lesson from the Wyatt/Johnny Bryan fiasco pics and that she'll never be doing that again.
But what's Prince Andrew doing with her? I can't help but think it's some sort of smoke and mirrors for him, he doesn't have to commit to any woman and move on because he's got Sarah. . . .

Thanks for the news enovoros, it's just so pity that i don't have chances to be back and getting some photos of the Duke taken. Hope that he will have a great time there, and won't get sick with the current weather, as it is extremely hot right now both in Hanoi or Ho Chi Minh City.

I wish I could have seen the show. Jimmy at the Olympics with his long grey hair. Boy did he change the world and my life. I will always love that crazy little Angel. Hopefully we will see him still. Love Led Zeppelin.

Wasn't the Duke's trip to Vietnam postponed?

Does this mean that this article was made up from thin air?

Wonder if he does the ironing himself?

Pics 9.9.2008

Britain's Prince Andrew with Vietnamese Prime Minister Nguyen Tan
Dung in Ho Chi Minh City on September 9, 2008. Prince Andrew is
on an official visit to mark the 35th anniversary of the establishment
of diplomatic relations between the two countries.

Looking at pic 3 it seems to me as if Andrew prefered water -
that's nice

His expression and posture in the first picture look just like Prince Philip!

Mon Dieu!!!! So many links and pics!!! Thank you everyone. My heart's all aflutter. He's def. my fav prince and he looks like he's dropped some more weight (looks fabulous, of course!) but he does have the tendency - at times - to look like a deer in the headlights, so to speak. But he's still adorable!

Not surprising. In a lot of Asian countries they tend to "toast" in the "yam sing" style. Frequently and drain the glass each time. It is a wise man who know's his limit and Prince Andrew is bright enough to know he needs a clear head during his trade meetings.

Britain is lucky that they have such a personable trade ambassador and diplomat who seems absolutely made for the job, as most international
Trade Ministers do not represent the cult of "youth". Wisdom, age, and more importantly, status are very, very important assets.

Do you know the whole tradition??
Sounds like the Hawaiian Jaycees to me! They have Banzai parties with lethal Kool-Aid and keep draining the glass!

From what I've read I was under the impression that Andrew doesn't drink alcohol, period.
