But next month, Prince Andrew's 50th birthday is expected to be a more muted affair, as it is his daughters Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie who are arranging it and not their mother, the Duchess of York.
I think the Yorks have been rather "muted" in their birthdays of late. Take for instance Eugenie's 18th, Beatrice's 21st and Sarah's 50th. All have been anything but extravagant. One would assume Andrew's party won't be a hugely wild gathering either. If he has a birthday party at his home in Windsor it would be far easier to keep it private.

Remember too the girls are at an age where they are capable of planning a party. After all if you wind the clock back 10 years they were far too young turning 12 and 10 years old.

Well with the economy in the toilet like it is, it wouldn't do for any of them to have an extravagant bash, now would it?

Apparently Andrew was at Eugenie's school yesterday to open a building there. She wasn't present, though.

Remember too that the tradition within the royal family is for large 21st birthdays but because of the significance of the dates surrounding Beatrice's 18th she was given the large 18th rather than 21st. Eugenie is more likely to have the large 21st in the same way that the Queen's children and other grandchildren have had.

Sarah's 50th of course wasn't a royal affair because she isn't royal but Andrew will be having a royal celebration in concert with his sister, who will be having her 60th this year. The same thing happened 10 years ago when it was a combined 40th and 50th given by the Queen.

You are very welcome, Opal! Here are more events he attended:

the development and creativity of people between ages 18 and 40. The
prize is a program designed by the British Council, that has rewarded the
talent and initiative of young entrepreneurs who belong to the design,

As much as I like Prince Andrew, I hope that he will face the same consequences as anyone else if the accident was caused by speeding or driver inattention. I also hope that the officer will be properly compensated for time missed from work because of this.

Airmiles Andy? Well, I've certainly been called worse

Prince Andrew talks frankly about living with Fergie again, denies being a freeloader - and launches a scathing attack on the greed of bankers and politicians.

Duke of York: Falklands turned me into a man

The Duke of York has spoken about his family, work and his aspirations for the future in a rare interview to mark his 50th birthday.

Having read the stories it seems that the officer was touched on the arm by the car and is back at work after no more than 10 days.

From reading it I would imagine that the penalty would be similar to here - a relatively small fine.

When I hit a young boy on a pedestrian crossing I was fined $AUS100 but the fine would now be about $AUS500 and a couple of points on my license.

That boy was hospitalised with a broken leg.

I am not condoning my actions, or Andrew's, but let's not turn this into a jailable offence.

By the way - when asked if I have a criminal conviction I am legally able to answer No because it was a traffic offence not a criminal offence - I don't know if there is that distinction in Britian for minor injuries like this.

I mind add I have twice been hit in the arm by cars as I was standing on footpaths and the cars were going a bit too fast and too close to the kurb (hit by the mirrors as is reported to have happened in this case) and didn't need any days off work or even to see a doctor - just had a small bruise on the arm for a couple of days.

I think that there is a lot of 'let's attack Andrew because he can't answer back and have another go at the royals' rather than a real criminal case here - not condoning Andrew not stopping but understanding that due to security concerns that is something the royals have been told not to do.

Andrew has given another interview.
They interviewed Beatrice as well, somehow. It looks like she was interviewed on the front lawn of maybe Royal Lodge? because there's a picture of her along with the article. It's too bad there are no video clips.

Sounds like the injuries were quite minor then. I remember Andrew being pilloried once because he didn't stop to help Sarah up when she stumbled while pregnant. If I remember correctly, he did look back but kept onto the waiting car as his training had taught him to. I certainly have no desire to recommend jail time for Andrew or to heap abuse on him. He gets much more of that than he deserves IMO.

The video of the interview with Andrew (and Beatrice) has been posted. I was hoping for that because I wanted to see Beatrice speak about her dad. I like the way Beatrice presents herself. Very open and friendly and no airs.

Well done. I like Andrew's speaking voice. Totally un stuffy.
