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.
Thank you for sharing the facts cepe. I appreciate the time and effort you put into compiling this information.

As you pointed out Andrew is now in the press' targets for voicing his objections to their articles about him and his family. These types of stories are likely to continue until the press finds another BRF member to be their "click bait."

These are my thoughts exactly. I believe that the Queen is very conscious of costs.

Yes indeed, permission is required from the Queen whenever the royal helicopter is required for use. This was shown in a documentary about the Queen a few years or so ago, when it was required by the Duke of Gloucester - the equerry explained the circumstances as to why the helicopter was required and she gave her approval for its use. It will surely have been he same for the Duke of York.

More details about royal transportation can be discussed here:

Students from Prince Andrew High are off to Buckingham Palace for a once-in-a-lifetime meeting with their school’s namesake next month.

Teacher John Stewart said that students will already visit London as part of a 10-day trip to France and Britain taking in Canada’s First and Second World War history, including a visit to Vimy Ridge on the battle’s 100th anniversary, as well as a trip to the D-Day landing grounds in Normandy.

Almost on a whim, Stewart and his fellow teacher Ron Stewart (no relation) wrote a letter and then fired off an email to Prince Andrew’s office in London. Their message to the prince was simple.

“We’re both going to be in London. Let’s do lunch,” said Stewart.

Their perseverance paid off. Prince Andrew’s staff wrote back saying the prince would be in London during their visit. The students were also invited to a tour of Buckingham Palace if they arrived early enough.

“After the Vimy ceremony itself, which is the purpose of the trip, this is the most exciting part,” said Stewart.

And 'Kylie is someone that Her Majesty would welcome into the royal family with open arms. Everyone's hoping this romance goes the distance,' an insider allegedly told the magazine.

This is just so ridiculously stupid that I actually find it funny.

I'm almost tempted to lift my Daily Mail ban to click on this amusing article, but alas I won't.

It would be funny, though. Both Andrew and Prince Albert of Monaco were romantically linked to both Angie Everhart and Catherine Oxenberg. If this latest claim has merit they will also both now be linked to Kylie. A trifecta!

Meet The Royal Family's Tech Kingmaker

Quote:
"So what do you do?"

Queen Elizabeth II was looking up at Michael Rolph, a 35-year-old software nerd, who stood in a line of entrepreneurs in one of the state rooms of St. James's Palace.

The queen's second son, Prince Andrew, Duke of York, who perhaps had the most at stake in the conversation, stood nearby listening.

Nervously, Rolph replied that he ran a mobile app startup called Yoyo Wallet. And what, the queen asked, did Rolph think of the duke's big new project, the one where startups like Yoyo came to the palace to pitch their ideas to some of the most powerful business leaders and investors in the country?

Rolph explained that two years earlier, the duke's program had connected him to one of Britain's top coffee chains, and on this December day they were announcing a partnership.

"What took you so long?" the queen quipped.

Thank you for posting this Rudolph. I just read this.

It's nice to see Andrew getting some positive publicity for once.

My favorite tidbit was 'all eyes will be on Pippa Middleton's wedding to see if Kylie is on Prince Andrew's arm.'
Um, no, just no, on so many levels.
