In an article about William and Kate's visit to Yellowknife, one sentence mentions that Prince Andrew is planning to pay a private visit to Yellowknife later this summer. Interesting - as a Canadian, I'm happy that he still sees Canada as a favourite place to visit. I wonder what he will do in Yellowknife?

Years ago when Andrew and Sarah visited Canada, didn't they take some private time and vacation in Yellowknife? I seem to recall that they took a canoe trip.

Yes, they did. I think Andrew had done some kind of wilderness excursion with his fellow students when he was a student at Lakefield College in Ontario, and he wanted to repeat the experience with Sarah. (According to her autobiography, the only thing she enjoyed about it was getting some alone time with Andrew!)

I just read this piece about Andrew's plans for his trip to Canada.

It sounds like he is revisiting happier times.

There won't be a "King Charles". More likely he will be King George.

I think things will change for Andrew when Charles gets more power. He does get away with alot because he is the Queens favourite. Sarah seems to be around more because of what she can still get out of him then love. The Palace have already said Beatrice and Eugenie won't be working royals so that dream for Andrew is over it won't change with Charles in charge. If he continues to cause problems in his role that too will go sooner rather then later. His recent spending on travel was ridicules even in a bad year he spent double that the queen and Charles did.

I noticed one glaring error in this article: The Queen didn't leave Sarah "penniless" after the York divorce.

With a profligate former wife and two coming-of-age daughters to support, according to an insider, Andrew has complained that it’s hard to make do on a yearly stipend of $408,000.
You live for free, don't pay for your expenses on your job and find it hard to live on 400K? I'll take a tenth, pay my own rent and smile.

Give me 400k to live on with no expenses and all I would have to do is show up, be polite & smile for a few pictures......please you wouldn't hear a peep out of me.......You would just see me doing backwards handsprings to the bank & hope I don't break my neck in the process........just a little joke!!

How do you know? I think a King Charles III would be fine no matter the history. This modern generation doesn't know its history anyway so the negative implications are rather moot IMO.
I am also interested in King Charles III's take on his brother and What Andrew's role will be under the new Kingship--if any. However Russo can wait. She hopes HM lives for a long, long time yet!

I still like to think in ages in the future he'd be reflected on as Charles the Green. For me there's been too many Georges.

So now the press is insisting that William and Kate should be trade ambassadors, predicated on the success of their recent tour.

Where does that leave Andrew? The press says he won't be affected, but I wonder?

The article about Andrew's doubling of his travel costs can be found here:

Excerpt:

Duke of York Prince Andrew doubles his travel bill By Steve Doughty
Last updated at 1:31 AM on 5th July 2011

The Duke of York more than doubled his spending of public money on foreign trips to promote British business, it emerged yesterday.

Prince Andrew, dubbed Airmiles Andy for his lavish travel bill, racked up £358,763 in journeys to Asia and the Middle East.

One trade trip took in Saudi Arabia and Bahrain just months before the Gulf state was engulfed in unrest and rioting against its rulers in which at least 30 people are said to have died.
