I hope Andrew is having a great time! There is nothing like a vacation flirt that is young and gorgeous. I am sure she will not be any less taken care off than by a younger person.

Hmmm. So she's single and only 25. Seems Randy Andy hasn't lost his touch. Good luck to him!

"Randy Andy" since when has he had that name?
Prince Albert is engaged to marry a woman who is twenty years younger than him.

'Randy Andy' was his nickname in the early 80s when he dated a number of young ladies. It stopped being used when he walked down the aisle with a certain red-head in 1986.

Seriously? Charles dated more girls than Andrew, I think. But then again Randy Charles doesn't fit as good as Randy Andy.

And Charles didn't marry someone who liked her toes sucked in public, but he still dated more girls.

I don't know much about Koo Stark, just looked her up, and she looks very pretty.
Is there a thread about Andrew's exes?
She looks/sounds like a wonderful woman.

Koo Stark from all I have heard was a thoroughly nice girl and if it hadn´t been for a rather silly scandal she would have probably been the Duchess of York. I read a biography and in it Koo was spoken of, very well I must say, and something that caught my eyes was a sentence that said more or less this "even Princess Anne who is not easily pleased said she was the nicest girl she had ever met" now that is a compliment and a half.
Actually she didn´t do much more than Kate did showing underwear at a fashion show, it was a film I believe but there wasn´t any more on show than Kate had, so it was just bad luck
To tell you the truth I never heard of any of Charles´s girlfriends except before his marriage when a girl was seen to stay at Balmoral and gossip ran rife about a royal wedding etc etc as everyone on TRF is very familiar with.

Oh I liked Koo. It has been said so did HM. I was just referring to the Randy Andy scandal. . . basically, that shot on the balacony was the shot that created the scandal. . ..

Yes in retrospect who knew that Koo was a bargain?!

You gotta remember it was the early 80's...so even the shower scene was scandalous.

But yes, Koo is an excellent example of inappropriate person (at least on canvas) who turns out to be a nice girl. She has never said a negative word about Andrew and as Warren mentioned when she was down on her duckets she never sold him out. I believe they are still friends. It was a sad turn of events to hear about her breast cancer, and I am glad she is still among the living. So many women (and men) die of the disease.

Given that Koo was in financial difficulty, it would have quite tempting to tell her story to get out of financial debt. The fact that she didn't says a lot about her character. This is someone who is loyal and trustworthy.

Exactly! Unlike an exwife who will attempt to sell access to him.

What a nice and worthy woman. If only he could date someone like that. A beautiful woman, with great character and a good moral center. Who can assist him in his duties.

Sorry...off topic.

I know this is a bit off topic but I read somewhere where they did a family tree and found out that Koo was related to Marsha Washington and some other prominent Americans. I'm just curious if this was true. Does she have any royal blood in her ancestry? Does anyone know? Just curious.

From The Article

Quote:
When Prince Andrew was pictured on a yacht getting touchy-feely with a woman half his age, the denials came thick and fast.
They're just friends, said a source, and anyway, she's married.
But now it turns out 25-year-old Alexandra Escat is in fact single - and the pair have since been seen jetting off together.

The Duke of York, 50, was seen engrossed in a playful conversation with the Filipino model on a luxury yacht last week.

Any reports on Andrew's whereabouts since Sardinia?
Sky.com reported he is back in Scotland with the girls, Richard Palmer, Daily Express (VIA Twitter) understands that he is in Spain?
