I don't think Vanessa was really slamming B&E. Her point is one that I, and a lot of Britons share - B&E are really not required by the firm for the foreseeable future, and they should be free to...

How does Harry get paid to be royal and by whom? What government funding does Harry receive that should be open to questions from tax payers? And what taxpayer funding does Andrew receive?

I would pay no heed to that article in the Mail. Its absolute drivel, IMO. How would they know what may or may not have happened? Just an attempt to fill the papers

I broadly agree with you, B&E need to work independent of the BRF.

What was the story from Ascot Ladies Day?

I agree with you.

The York girls should focus on building their careers and lives independent of The Firm for now. It may be that in time they be called up on by Charles, or possibly William, to...

Exactly my point. Nobody knows where Peter works. It has been a while since he worked at RBS. I know the rough area where he works as I often shop / lunch in the area and have seen him, but I have no...

IMO, she may be required at some distant point in the future, say 15 years from now, when the Wessex couple, Andrew and Anne want to retire. Till then she should be free to live a normal life. who...

A parsimonious royal family is viewed quite positively these days. Rather be seen as tight than end up as their Russian cousins! :rofl:

Once William & Harry have a few children each, B & E will be very easily down to about tenth in the succession line.
