Thanks for posting that link, Nico. I enjoyed that video immensely. A nice biographical account of Andrew PB as well as info about the artist and the artistic process.

Mark Shand ashes to be scattered in India

It is unfortunate that Camilla will not be with her family.

It is a shame that there was a conflict in her schedule.

I am sure she would have liked to be with her family and to see her brother off for the last time.

Seems strange they couldn't do it at a different time !!

Not necessarily if you consider the number of people involved and the planning that had to go into it. Sometimes you can't make something work for everyone.

Ridiculous article. The Crown Estate is an independently managed body with proceeds profits going to the Treasury. The Royal Family have no influence over its management.

I think the biggest thing here that Shakespeare is omitting in this article and I've read the article three times now to see if perhaps *I* missed something. No where in the article does it state that Simon Parker-Bowles owns the land on which Green's is built.

He is not being forced by the Royal Family out of his restaurant, as you state Muriel, and his livelihood is being taken away by bullies but to me it seems like the Crown Estates already own the land and SP-B has been told by the landlord that his time there is up. If SP-B owned the land outright, it would stand to reason that some settlement had been made. The statement in the article by SP-B states "‘It’s true that we are being forced to close Duke Street due to the insatiable desire of the Crown Estate to redevelop,"

If Simon Parker-Bowles is a smart man, perhaps a workable solution would be to negotiate that Green's would become part of the renovations as it states the area is to include offices, restaurants and upscale apartments/living areas.

Then again, Perhaps this is all Shakespeare's overactive imagination and he's seen smoke from a candle and is yelling "Fire!". I don't trust anything out of this man's mouth.

Oh let it rest, Richard Kay! Why shouldn't he engage Annabel? She's a talented interior decorator who knows his tastes and with whom he works well and has for years. It's only natural he'll engage her for these projects.

It would make sense not to use her so it can't be media fodder. Typical of Charles to do this.

To be honest, I think if the BRF were to strive to avoid media fodder, they'd forevermore be holed up in a castle with a very deep moat and the drawbridge up.

To me, its just common sense to go with someone you know that can do the work as you want it to be done. I think most of us that had family that could expertly do a job for us, they'd be quite insulted if we went elsewhere with our business.

It's not new information. It was addressed in the Dumfries House restoration documentary and Annabel was in the doco.

Its not like he gave a multi million dollar public funded contract to her He hired her with personal money to do a personal job. One she is highly qualified to do and knows his style and taste.

Would any of us do different? If your Aunt was a florist, would you not hire her for your wedding? The queen uses her cousin as a party planner and no one cares.

Yes, although at times I suppose it can get a bit fraught (Peter Phillips and the Queen's 90th birthday Mall celebrations come to mind.) However, I'm sure Annabelle Elliot does a splendid job. She knows the couple's tastes, etc.

I think the Daily Fail journalists are on the prowl through their archives at this time of the year. Most royals are on holiday. No new Royal stories popping up.

The Queen hires her cousin Elizabeth Anson for party planning. She organized the party for the foreign royals ahead of the wedding of W&K. That's the same thing as Charles hiring Camilla's sister yet no outrage from the press.

The Queen can't be touched though but this is August.

August is bash Charles and Camilla month as the public have to be reminded how they destroyed the life of Diana.

Every year August sees story after story of how awful Charles and Camilla are. There are few, if any, royal engagements to give the press other stories and so they bring out all the anti-Charles and anti-Camilla stories.

They also often adding anti-William stories painting William as like Charles - the serious, even pompous entitled son while Harry is like Diana with the 'common' touch - whatever that means.

I suspect this is because William won't play ball and allow the press any chance to cover his growing family and a large percentage of the public are buying into the lazy William vs hardworking Harry hype (ignoring the fact that Harry does fewer engagements than William and has been unemployed for over a year - if that had been Beatrice who was unemployed for over a year the press would be on her back but Harry can do nothing much and the press still present him as somehow the best of the bunch).

William has his reasons for not allowing any real connection to develop between the public and his children - a few static pictures with no other humans in them with no real backgrounds - backgrounds that could be anywhere in the world does mean there isn't the emotional connection between the public and his children that existed between the public and earlier royal children through seeing them actually moving and connecting with their family.
