and what's his salary on this? Sky, you were able to get ahold of that article for the Naval officer's pay, is there anything about what he makes being the UK's Roving Financial Ambassador?

Really? He appears sometimes in a military context as well or on other engagements in the UK. His most high-profile jobs seem to be his foreign ones, though.

Andrew doesn't receive a salary for his role as ambassador for trade and industry. You'll find this stated on his official site as well as the UK trade and industry site.

"The Duke is not paid for his work as Special Representative however his travel expenses are met by UK Trade and Investment and the Department of Transport."

I just love photo nr. 3. The look on that little girl's face, like she is thinking:"Are you a real Prince and can I actually touch you?" Priceless!!

.... but so that we are clear, that is not funds from the state. That is money provided privately to Andrew by the Queen

What goes around comes around! The state is getting a great service at a very cut rate.

Call it snobbery, but there are doors that will open for a Royal Prince that would remain resolutely closed for any other "Representative" employed in such a role. And, they would have to pay that person an exhorbitant salary to enable him to maintain the lifestyle that would enable him to move in the circles that Prince Andrew does.

However, that would not guarantee him an entree into those circles just as being "Royal" wouldn't compensate for an inferior intellect so;
Conclusion: Money well spent, and cheap at twice the price.

Can't agree with that at all MARG. He is seen as a pompous overpaid lounger, who uses the state to have super holidays that even include his daughter. In most big companies, the decisions are made by the CEO's who knowing money is involved and they are quite happy to see the head of a trade mission, whether it is a prince or not. It is money that talks!

Prince Andrew makes a quick trip to Canada

New building at Lakefield College School brings Duke of York back for ribbon-cutting ceremony.

Date: 2008-10-18
By Jessica Lovell


"It's an enormous pleasure to be in Canada, also what I would describe as at home, here," said the prince as he stepped up to the podium.
Prince Andrew, he Duke of York, spent only a short time at Lakefield College School, when he attended as an exchange student in 1977. He maintains his relationship with the school as a trustee of the school and of the Lakefield College School Foundation.

His experience at Lakefield left an impression on him, and it is not unusual for him to return from time to time for special events in the area.

At the risk of not having the specifics to hand: If the Queen's civil list payments broadly just about cover the costs of the monarchy, suggesting that because the Queen receives funding from the state (to cover expenses she incurs is her role as head of state!), the state is subsisiding the existence of her children is a bit disingenous, and IMO, quite misleading.
