Nothing romantic about it at all - the pictures give no impression of anything more casual friendship.

I heard somewhere that the ring was the engagement ring of one of the other couples who had just got engaged. Don't know if that is the case and the media have made a story where there isn't one.

Couple get engaged, go out to dinner to celebrate with friends and take a photo of the bill and ring to remind them of the event. Seems something that some people would do - tacky thing to do but I have heard of it happening.

^^ Actually I can relate to that. I keep ephemera. The image will serve as an interesting and informal reminder of where they were and what prices were like there at the time they celebrated their engagement. and the digital image will be more enduring than the bill itself.

Cele|bitchy | Prince Andrew & Monika Jakisic are ‘clearly smitten with each other’

It would be deemed wise for Prince Andrew to find a well-to-do discreet lady to date. I do not think he needs this kind of publicity.

If it is some other couple who are celebrating why did Monika tweet the photo? LOL For the attention she is getting of course there is nothing discreet about her. And if Andrew continues so will these stories. She tweeting cryptic pictures etc even if there is nothing between them she will encourage people to think there is for as long as possible. the calf's liver grossed me out I'm not into offal. I know Andrew didn't drink but I think it changed at some stage.

You "said a mouthful" there, Al_Bina. Of course, if he did date a lady like that, we'd never know, would we?

Thanks Iceflower. There is some lovely history if you read down in the DM article. The pictures of the squad are stunning.

There was a similar article on the DM - and the comments from the public were scathing about Andrew making these comments - a case of 'shooting down the message because of the messenger'.
