Yes I know it's a rubbish newspaper but the actual advert is shown.
...he should run his own baths.
You do realise that longevity runs in The Queen's family, she could easily live to 100 and reign that long as well. Don't count her out when she's not gone yet.

As for your "skivvy" article the advertisement itself states that it's for

"You will assist the Housekeeping team at Royal Lodge with;
- the cleaning and presentation of accomodation
- the care of antiques and specialist cleaning
- maiding and valetting service for guests
- assisting at receptions, dinners and other events

Where is "you will assist on running a bath for Prince Andrew" in there? It's the Daily Mail interpreting things to make Andrew specifically look bad.

There's no some people about it, I haven't seen any news stories or other people mentioning kicking Andrew out of his home with his two daughters for un-married Prince Henry other than one.

Let's end the speculative discussion on who will live at Royal Lodge when Charles is King.

In the Right now...right here...Queen Elizabeth II still reigns and its the home of The Duke of York.

Any additional speculative posts will be deleted without notice.

It was King George V who insisted that the name of Royal Lodge always be preceded by "The" with a capitalized "T".
King George declared, "People will know it's really royal."

In 1931 King George V gifted The Royal Lodge to the Duke and Duchess of York. Thereafter it became the family's country retreat.
