I really can't see that happening Demi Moore usually dates men a lot younger then her and Andrew is older then her? Could be just a rumour.

Demi is 54, Andrew 56. Her first 2 husbands were older, but since Ashton, she has gone young.

Besides according to US tabs she is dating a 30 year Aussie.

I don't think Demi would want to share Andrew with Sarah even if she was interested in the 1st place which I don't think she would be.

While the west coast of the US may be the locale most synonymous with the successful startup, however Prince Andrew, Duke of York believes the UK should not try to “emulate” its ecosystem, and instead stay true to its own.

Speaking to The Drum, the Duke, who is an avid supporter of entrepreneurship and former UK trade envoy, explained that his work illuminated the diversity of start-up scenes around the world.

Where is the outrage over Andrew being criticized for using the helicopter? When the Cambridges are the targets, people whine and call it a vendetta and petty, and claim they face criticism for doing the same thing other royaks do. But when Andrew is criticized, no one cares. Proof again that all the royaks get heat for the helicopter, not just the young ones

I think this story is lifted from the Sunday Express, which I read.

Prince Andrew's 45-minute helicopter journey costs taxpayers £3,000 | Royal | News | Daily Express

This is so pathetic. It's the usual part-truth storyline that doesn't give all the information which would result in a balanced article.

All the BRF use the helicopters as we know - but as DoY has just had a go at the media, then the media will have a go back. School ground stuff.

The Express article also has a go about overseas travel. Very misleading. DoY scheduled overseas travel amounted to 12 days. Another 4 were added when he took over a trip when Princess Royal was ill. Here's the list of #days

PoW 20
Camilla 17
William 22
Catherine 18
Harry 34
Duke of Y 12 + 4 (Anne's)
PR 35
Edward 30
Sophie 14
DGlos 6
DsG 5
DK 4
Alexandra 4

No o/seas travel for HMQ or DoE.

This is days of official engagements. It doesn't include, for example, Harry's stay in Africa.

The press can criticise anyone it wants but if it's a story about the Cambridges using the helicopter we'd already be at 50 comments from people here at TRF expressing their 'outrage'. With Andrew there are three posts.

Which goes to show it's people wanting to have a go at W&K rather than concern about using a helicopter for an official event.

Prince Andrew, Duke of York Current Events 7: February 2015

We have seen this same helicopter outrage article before. Charles, William, Kate were the previous subjects of helicopter abuse and now it's Andrew.

The helicopters are leased so they are paid for from the Sovereign grant if they are used or they sit there. The £3000 cost is if you went in from the street and rented a helicopter for a day. But that's not the situation here

All the royals use the helicopter including Anne and beloved Harry.

The Queen and Philip's train trip to Sandringham is basically the Hogwarts Express journey from Harry Potter. Those wizard kids could have just taken a portkey or floo to Hogwarts but let's make them all go to London and then take a 1/2 day train ride.

The Queen and Philip are in a first class cabin with no regular people in it. So that's more than 2 senior tickets. They don't have their luggage or Corgis with them. So that means the dogs and luggage are going to Sandringham via road plus all the staff that has to go to Sandringham for the 3 months that the Queen is there for. So moving the Queen to Sandringham isn't just the cost a of train ticket.

The Sovereign Grant Act also allows the Royal Household to determine it's own priorities. If the Queen thinks she needs two helicopters for travel, she leases two helicopters (which she does btw)

I could see people getting worked up if the helicopter was being used to take the royals to McDonalds for breakfast. But when the story is member of the royal family takes official helicopter to official royal event, it makes no sense, at least to me.

I think too that if the royal bird is to get off the ground, its the Queen's "OK" that gives it the go ahead to lift off. Would anyone dare to really cross the Queen's assent in the execution of official duties?

That was my understanding too, Osipi. The Queen approves each and every use of the helicopter. So if she thinks the use is warranted......who is anyone to complain?
