You know, that could be an excellent "Caption This" opportunity such as, "But Prince Andrew, that isn't a fabric top, it's my knickers!"

Hmm. I think there are others that can do better!

Those pics are too funny, Iceflower! I esp. like the expression on the woman's face. It's though she's looking at him thinking he's lost his mind. Even in mad laughter, Prince Andrew is still handsome!

He is most assuredly handsome but is it me, or is he getting a bit portly?

I think it depends on the photo. In some he looks heavier. I dunno . . . a man w a little meat on him is never really a bad thing. Esp. if it's P. Andrew!

He's rumoured to be the Queen's favourite child isn't he? He looks very relaxed at his engagements, seems genuine.

Well, yes,... when Edward isn't being rumored as favorite, ...or when Anne isn't being reported to have become very close to her mother and favored....
I guess the only one never to have held the rumored favorite position is Charles. It's all rumors, though.

Yeah, poor Charles is the odd one out, or at least I know he definitely isn't his father's favorite. Andrew was the favorite growing up, but I don't know about know, Anne shares her mother's love with horses and now with Zara they are 3 generations of horse finatics.

I heard they call Anne Princess Grumpy...not surprised...she always looks miserable. Andrew always looks so pleasant and seemingly a lot of fun to be around.

Definitely. The Queen's supposed favorite is all depending on the subjective view expressed. All the commentators have varying ideas about that one.
It's the same with the speculation about her "favorite" grandchild. No one knows really, but many have a theory about it.

I'd be grumpy too with all those damnedable paps around! I always laugh when I hear them quote her as saying "Naff off!"

I've heard Prince Andrew was his mother's favorite (if that's possible - I'm not a mum so I have no clue). I guess because she was already experienced having children and she was pretty comfortable in her role as HM, she was able to enjoy Andrew more than she was allowed her older two children. And I guess Andrew was a delightful baby. At least that's what I've heard.

I am a mother, and believe me, the "favorite" designation can change from day to day, hour to hour even.

I think he surely was a delightful baby and child. In the book Royal Children (Seward) there are the cutest pics of him and Edward growing up. Apparently, Andrew was a little troublemaker from the word go.

I am not a parent either but it has long been my suspicion that parents tend to have varying favortism towards their kids. I think each child is so unique, so a parent in a sense views each child as a kind of favorite but for a different reason(s) for each child.

I could never favor one child of mine to the other. I always told them I loved them both the same.

Yes but they have different traits. My eldest was witty and funny and a ham. My youngest was shy and introverted and had his own little things that he did well. A good mother can't favor one or the other. You appreciate them for who they are and for what they are.
