No surprise as there hasn't been anything posted since he stood down from royal duties. The same with his other social media outlets - nothing since that announcement so they are all effectively dead.

Understandable, but it is a pity that the York princesses' biographies have gone with it. I don't understand why Prince and Princess Michael of Kent are given their own biography on the royal family website and additionally have their own websites, but Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie of York do not.

Agreed. One cant even argue its because the Yorks are not working royals as neither are Prince and Princess Michael. Their work is private as well.

Its sad how little recognition those girls got even before this from the family. The family doesn't even have to pay them/make them working royals. Some simple recognition of their work would give the RF good press boost.

Odd, when I looked at the website for the royal family the only Kent I saw was the Duke, no mention of Prince & Princess Michael of Kent - perhaps I’m looking at the wrong place?
At this time the York name equals bad press due to the actions of Andrew and Sarah, thus mentioning Eugenie or Beatrice always gives the press an excuse to dredge up the scandals of their parents. It’s not ‘fair,’ but for the time being the York daughters generate more negative press towards the RF than positive. Hopefully with time and as they start their own families they’ll be seen as distinct from their parents and no longer unfairly tarnished with guilt by association.

I have had the thought that more recognition could actually help to counter the myths that they do not work and are simply dependents (financially and otherwise) on their parents.

Thanks for the links, I suspected I was unable to navigate the site properly.

I also looked at the Websites front page, and the Wessexes are listed before Prince Andrew, w/Andrew getting a small frame next to Princess Anne. The only other Royals with small frames are the spouses.

Were you perhaps looking on the "Royal Family" page? For some reason I don't understand, the Duchess of Kent and Prince and Princess Michael are not listed on it. And it cannot be due to their status as non-working royals, as the Duke of Edinburgh, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, and the Duke of York are, in contrast, listed.

I think they've listed them in order of succession w/their spouses; that's why I'm surprised that the Wessexes are listed before the Andrew.

But the Kents (other than the Duke) are not listed at all.

I suppose they made that the cut off point, because even on the same page for the succession list, they stopped at #18; they didn't include the Gloucesters or the Kents.

Why should the DoY be looking "sheepish" and "abashed" after walking his blameless daughter down the aisle at her wedding?

As her father it was his obligation and his right.

Andrew is too arrogant and stupid to be "sheepish" or abashed. He should feel it but he wotn.

I don't think its up to us to decide how Andrew should act, think and feel. We're not him. Only person that can tell me how I should be is the person I meet in the mirror.

He’s literally driving from one place to another, I mean bottom of the barrel reporting or what.

Because he’s leaving onto public roads, same reason The Queen and Prince Philip were papped going to and from Beatrices’ wedding on Friday.
