Yes, and also a couples of days ago he attended the special tv program "The Greatest Debate on Earth". The show was presented by BBC journalist Stephen Sackur and took place at the DR Concert Hall in Copenhagen.
The liders invited were, President Calderon, Prime Minister of Sweden (Currently Sweden is the Presidency of the EU), Prime Minister of Australia, President of Maldives, and the Minister of enviroment of South Africa.

You can watch the whole debate here. (In English) Very interesting debate btw.

Quite unlikely. I think it would be negligent to believe the Duke of York was invited over his mother, or even his elder brother for that matter. It's more likely that the Queen asked Andrew to go in her name as her official representative to the Thai court for the celebration. Just as she has done with her cousins and children all her reign. Most recently the Princess Royal's undertaking to Melbourne after the disasterous 'Black Saturday' bushfires in February of this year. She too was asked by her mother to attend in her place.

There appears to be no real familiarity between Andrew and the TRF which could suggest he was the intended recipient of the invitation.

As you youserself say, it is HM prerogative to not attend, and to have no one close to the throne represent her (I mean either her husband or children) would have been quite the snub.

(note: perhaps a mod could move this particular exchange to a more appropriate thread?)

Well, it was Prime Minister, Gordon Brown who attend the dinner in representation of the British Goverment. It would had been extrange to me that Prince Andrew attend instead of the Prime Miniter.

After all, COP15 is a political gathering of Heads of Government. The Heads of Government would have been the ones invited to the gala dinner as represenatives of thier nations and Heads of State.

Yep and he was placed next to Mary. I guess Gordon wasn't happy. He left Britain the way the usually does when it's the big events, indicating the "Gordon will save the world" moment. Well, it didn't happen, probably not his fault, but being seated at the dinner next to a Danish princess certainly wasn't on his mind, rather Hillary, Angela Merkel, Obama or at least Queen Margrethe ...

I don't know... I somehow thought the whole gala banquet thing was not really appropriate. It didn't really fit.
I cannot really explain what it is, but it's somehow ridiculous to see the world leaders attending such a festive event hosted by Royals.
... after all there was nothing to celebrate in the end.

I'm fairly sure the photos were taken during the speeches. Everyone is gazing into the middle distance looking slightly bored - not just Gordon Brown.

Q Margrethe, P Mary and P Marie all looked exceptional at this dinner.

Pity that the crown princess's dresser / designer aren't a bit more careful about ensuring that the dress length doesn't exceed coat length. P Marie is very careful about details like this and looks more regal as a result. Her entrance with Joachim is very elegant, though still black and that is a pity.
