when its a friday night, thats what people do. They go out, have a few drinks. I think what people are getting upset about is the fact that they believe that the girls are spending tax payers money during this recession!
doesnt the duchess make her own money?

The taxpayers would be paying for their security on a Friday night whether they were in a club, a hospital, an orphanage, a palace, a brothel or a nunnery.

That is the whole point, paying for their security, all the time, whether they are going for a holiday, having a night out or whatever they please to do, there are these security personnel standing around and having to be paid for standing around.

That's an astute observation, Jo. We don't hear much about her regular friends, do we?

That makes more sense as I am sure that that was what I read when William's results came out but the article I read about Bea's results had those for William (when they are actually Harry's).

However all the articles still say that Bea's results were better than William's based on her two As and a B to his one A, one B and one C.

I think a lot of it has to do with the parents behavior, like you said, Udy, in numerous posts: as the twig is bent, so grows the tree.
(Sorry I'm not witty enough this evening. I think Russo needs some wine. . . . It is Friday after all! )

"As the twig is bent, so grows the tree"?? LOVE your take on the old adage! I said it in numerous posts but Never as witty as you put it.

That's so true, Skydragon. It might not be "fair", but it's true.

To a certain extent, I must agree with the idea that "Trudeaumania" didn't end with that first election that Pierre Elliott Trudeau won.

But, you have to admit that the Kennedys are seen (by some) as the American version of royalty, and the Trudeaus (albeit in a much lesser sense than the Queen or even the Kennedys) as Canada's elite family.

I wonder how much of an issue the girls' behavior would be if they didn't have their taxpayer-funded security? I think somewhat, but nowhere near the extent that it is.

I just have to wonder how many people really Care if the York princesses have security or not?! It seems to me that it just brings more attention to them. Maybe that is the idea...

I think everyone has had the opportunity to share their opinions on the girls by now. Let's get back to this being Beatrice's Current Events thread.

Thanks!

Willingly, but she doesn´t seem to have any current affairs, which in a way I suppose is a good sign.

If the size of the bags are any indication, it appears that she plans on staying a couple of weeks! It will be interesting to see if she will be hounded by the press as she is in London...or if she will even be recognized.

That plum-coloured bag is gorgeous! I wonder what she'll be doing? Visiting friends, perhaps.

When royals travel, I'm assuming they go first class? What about their assistants and security?
