I personally see nothing wrong with Andrew playing and enjoying golf. I don't know why that has become a negative with regard to him, outside of the optics of the occasional helicopter to get to a course.

I honestly see it no different then polo for his nephews. They all have hobbies.

He is patron of a number of golf clubs and associations as well.

Even if he laid off flying a helicopter there it wouldn't help him. He has a reputation for being lazy and just golfing. In reality its because the press ignores most of the work he actually does. He could triple his engagements and people would call him lazy because he gets no press attention for work. Like his daughters, his work only gets attention when it can be spun into a holiday or some other kid of story.

Andrew often visits commonwealth countries, like Canada as he is very involved with our military, but gets no attention for it.

Just as he is currently in Australia for a 'whirlwind' visit that will see him here for nearly two weeks but ... there is no coverage in reality here at all of the visit.

His problem is two-fold at least

1) he doesn't have a wife so the reporters can't write endless stories about her wardrobe
2) he is disliked for his own actions - whether warranted or not is another issue - he has behaved like many other second sons/children but he has been villified almost since the day he married Fergie

Edward is much the same - hardly gets any coverage unless he is with Sophie. People would be surprised to see how little Sophie does in comparison to either of these princes - or even William and Harry - but she is often in the media and so people assume she is doing a lot more than she actually is.

NB I will be putting up an 'update on engagements' this weekend but it will be one update covering August to September (sorry I got behind and so won't be putting up a 'week-by-week for those 7 or so weeks but one full one and then back to weekly to the end of the year).
