Great photos, Ice! P Andrew looks fabulous. Pss E looks more relaxed than in earlier photos. Maybe the wine helps.

Thanks so much for linking us up with these pictures, iceflower. I'm pleased to see that Eugenie got to meet a provincial governor. Looks like some of the pre-trip speculation wasn't accurate, because these daytime events certainly aren't "tourist sites."

She looks her best when simply dressed doesn´t she? She seems to be carrying off the trip very well, perhaps after all it will be a good learning trip for her.

That's what I'm hoping. I think that she looks very well put-together and gracious. She looks like a working princess.

You are all most welcome

Me too, I feel it's a good experience for Eugenie, she looks interested,
charming, communicative and ready to learn a lot more from her father.
And I like the fact that Andrew seems to treat her like a serious and
equal companion.

Great Photos, thanks for all the posting. Just kind of proves that PSS Eugenie knows when to dress appropriately. She dresses trendy for clubbing but I thought she looked marvelous for the diplomatic visits. I think it is a very good learning tool for her.

ITA! Eugenie looks like a working princess and she and Andrew have very nice body language around each other...they look like they make a great team.

It is my understanding that she receives an amount to spend and does so at her discretion. Someone please correct me if I am wrong but I thought she paid her staff/retainers/family out of the funds paid to her

Don't you know it.

Let me just say I don't agree with frivilous spending, royal or not. Like the hiring of a private helicopter to fly 50 miles for lunch. But business people do it, esp. VIPs. I understand taxpayers aren't footing the bill for CEOs and such, before anyone happily points it out. But it's not such an unusual thing. And they don't mention the circumstances behind it and the importance of his job to attend this lunch. They need to let go of the golf thing; it's totally accepted - and often even expected, at least here in the US - that a business conference/retreat/whatever will often include some sort of recreation for participants and often that recreation is golf. And as for enjoying himself on some private yacht, so what? The guy can't have a few hours of down time? How many conventioners or biz travelers are "working" the Entire time they're on a biz trip? Not many.

Once again, I don't see that big of a deal with all this, but then I'm not a British taxpayer (thank God - no offense). He is working for his country, after all, and I think it is important. And meeting w a royal is always going to surpass your average celeb or CEO or whatnot. So just the fact the he is who he is will generate interest, and that's part of what it's all about.

Which makes me wonder why HM doesn't buy him a plane and a helicopter for his specific use. Try and get self-sufficient more and off the tax payers dole. I think that would go a long way to changing the "AirMiles Andy" image people have of him.

Very interesting links, evnovoros. Thanks. I wonder if his office will really reimburse the "convicted drug smuggler" or what. Something about this whole thing seems kinda shady.

When I read the headline, I thought that the "smuggler" had unloaded crates and crates of weapons by use by terrorists. Turned out that it was one machine gun to give the guy some kind of strange "street cred." In any case, this doesn't look like a good person to have in the circle of a British HRH.
