I am so glad that I am not the only one who feels that Andrew has been the target for negative responses. know that he isn't a perfect soul and has made mistakes, but I have noticed that he works a lot. Andrew seems to be constantly on the road in his quest to highlight British commerce. Maybe he has to be careful about choosing what events to go to? If there is a business-related party that he attends, it seems that the press always finds something wrong-- with the event, with Andrew's friends.
Royals have to be very careful about people they consort with; I guess the reporters think royals have to do background checks on their friends?

It isn't just the event's Andrew goes too it's also that he seems to attach a golfing holiday along with it and using the Royal Helicopters or private planes to attend events that has given him so much negative press. If he did as Anne did and was seen as trying to save money then he wouldn't give the press what they needed to be negative about him. Of course they would find something else but it would help him!

Good thought, Meadow. Now if Andrew could only hear your advice.

Wonder if Andrew can still wear his 30 year old clothes?

LOL That is funny unlike Anne, Andrew certainly doesn't have the same physique he did way back then. Anne reminds of my dad who used to say he was the same weight he was in 1944 and who could fit into clothes from 30 years ago. I did get a quick flash of Andrew in a dress....LOL

Anne's and Sophie's events are rarely covered by the national press. That's why we don't hear about them using helicopters or taking long-distance trips. Anne is in South Africa on tour right now. How much have we heard about that?

True, but Anne's trips usually have a charity tie in which is considered good and noble, while Andrew's trips are for business/economic reasons and we all know that business in nasty and dirty and has no merit. As for golf , well who ever heard of business deals being done on a golf course.

There always has to be one member of the royal family that the press can single out for special criticism. For the last few years that person has been Andrew.

And Andrew's daughters.
I agree with you; most of the bad press Andrew gets is quite unfair.

So that's where Sarah has been hiding lately; striking deals with Chinese Government and arranging meetings with Andrew.
She's far more dangerous that I'd thought.

Prince Andrew is on a week-long visit to India on behalf of The Queen to mark the Diamond Jubilee, 30 April 2012.
Yesterday, on 30 April, was the first day of the visit; he attended a business meeting in New Delhi.

Thanks for the information. I wonder will his tour receive much press coverage. I am guessing neither of his daugthers have come along then?

As far as I know, neither Beatrice nor Eugenie are with Prince Andrew. At least, most certainly not in official representatives (on behalf of the Queen).

I'm afraid if it's not a story including helicopter rides or meetings with 'controversial' millionaire businessmen, the British press don't want to know when it comes to Andrew.
