I don't believe it is. Anne for instance is correct when she says she won an Olympic medal, that was by her own effort. She trained with the horse, rode the horse, did the work.

Charles has never claimed to have started anything on his own, he says he set in motion etc, but as we have seen he keeps a very close watch on anything he is involved in and always pays tribute to the men and women in his employ.

Andrew appears to believe he has done all the work when one or two contracts are agreed, (I wonder how many fall through). Is it a job that could bring rewards for the UK without the involvement and excessive cost of Andrew, I believe it could. What is your opinion on the matter?

If Anne ever claimed that she won an Olympic medal then she would be incorrect as she never won an Olympic medal. She competed at the 1976 Olympics and Britian won no Equestrian medals at those games.

She did win European medals but not an Olympic one.

Quite correct Iluv Bertie. Though I'd say Zara is a strong contender at the next olympics!

Didn't Andrew commission a report of his efforts with his own money? If so, I think the rest of the UK ought to be privvy to the findings to see if his "job" is warrented all the perks he gets for doing it. That's only fair, IMO.

Oops, you are of course correct, it was the European three day event at Burghley, (how could I forget, I was there), but she did qualify and compete in the 1976, Montreal Olympics, and for that she had to work with her horse, so unlike Andrew, she is right in saying she did the work. Zara, of course cannot be included, as she is not in the same position as the children of HM. Anne certainly managed in a very short time, to do what some couldn't even dare dream about.

Very nice pictures. I quite like Beatrice's outfit, and I like to see her on duty with her father like this.

I must say that I agree, Russo. It appears that Prince Andrew has noticed as well as they are locking eyes in the second photo. :)

Well Angie Everhart's interview did say PA has an eye for the ladies. ..

I'm glad to see Prince Andrew visiting the troops. They need a boost of morale especially this time of year.

Article from Afghanistan by the Duke of York

He wrote the letter on his last evening in Afghanistan for publication by News of the World. He mentions the NOTW's donation of Christmas presents to the children of soldiers.

I think that it's unusual to see a letter like this written, as well.
