Can you imagine the outrage if they were seen to be enjoying themselves!

That was after the main event when Andrew was probably partying for Britain and he does party so well in aid of the economy!

Ah, so you do admit that he does help the economy in some way!

On that we will have to take a raincheck! But I am sure he does a great deal for the economy when he purchases his Christmas Gifts.

Thanks for the links, evnovoros. Quite honestly, I'd have no problem at all sitting in the dark w Prince Andrew!

So much for the staid and boring reputation.

HA! That's nothing! The RF should see our family when we play RISK! Talk about vicious!
IMO, I don't think Andrew should say anything about sitting in the dark. It just seems like it's too forced and not sincere. Does that make sense?

I can imagine Andrew being competitive. He always reminded me of a jock despite his royal title and jocks are insanely competitive. Her Majesty? Well, she's into horse racing and I thought it funny when she said you have to have a bit of a gambler's mind to enjoy it because you have to think that your horse is going to be better than the next one.

Russo, that does it. I'm not playing RISK with you!

Well at least I'm not a poor sport! I have a brother who would get cheesed off and flip the board. If you know RISK, you know there are hundreds of games pieces that went flying!!!
Wonder how that would go over growing up . . . what would they say to each other??
Andrew: I'm not trading you the utilities for the orangie Mummy, then you'll have a Monopoly.
HM: If you don't you are going to bed without supper and you'll be grounded for a month!

Our family wasn't that bad! Actually I get a kick out of imagining the Queen and her family playing Monopoly. 'Now Charles and Andrew, I am your mother and the Queen, so I am going to take Park Place and Boardwalk and you'll just have to be satisfied with Baltic and Mediterranean. You can split the rents up between the two of you'

It would be really neat if the Queen had her own board of her kingdom, let's see Charles, you get Cornwall,

I read the Duke of Westminster was presented a Monopoly game that had all his properties on it.

Andrew could make one for charity. (What would be "Free Parking?" )Though at this time with this economy, seeing all the property they hold might upset the subjects.

Right, Russo. Not a very good PR move, I guess. But a game like that would be fun to see once the economy gets better.

The worst experience I ever had playing Monopoly was with a really gung-ho real estate agent. Never again.

In the real world, they would have fired the administrator of lighting and switch the lights off themselves. This would allow them an extra half hour or so to read a good book, instead of sitting in the dark.......

But that would really depend on who you were sitting in the dark with.
