It's been said that Fergie and Andrew never learn, but Eugenie ought to know better after all the blunders her parents have made in the past.

I was genuinely referring to things that have happened previously. But whilst to some extent I agree for me it depends on what the situation Eugenie walked into. It could have been "there's a real princess coming to your party", like would you really turn a kid down? Or was she told the whole situation and how it came about, and still went?

The whole issue has stemmed from the fact someone released pictures of put them on social media. Can anyone tell me where they came from? Was it one of the beckhams accounts?

Yes Beckham posted 2 pictures and then another one with some explaining to do (I guess someone 'asked' him to clarify).

However, I disagree that you can compare the goings on in London with somebody having a birthday party. All that had to happen is for nobody to post pictures. Then nobody would know. Harper Beckham can have a birthday party, a princess experience one because she's allowed. You cannot blame Harper for her parents and who she was born to. It's like attacking Eugenie for Sarah's mistakes. Shouldn't happen.

Whilst this situation is a huge failure on the PR part, live goes on. Atrocities happen, if you're going to say the above then you might as well say that the State Visit shouldn't happen because look at all those ladies in tiaras.


State visits are for political reasons we all know that ..can't be compared to the birthday party

It can. As for a political visit you certainly don't need a gigantic banquet, horse guards on parade and the full pomp and ceremony. Felipe can turn up, meet The Queen, speak in parliament and go home. We have the pomp for tradition. Therefore if you're going to say a kid can't have a birthday party because people have died, what about the other celebrations going on in the world? We've got to carry on.

Really I never said a child can't have a birthday party that is just twisting my words for the sake of it. You can see the difference. But anyway I'm out of Internet next few days so you can twist away

York Family News and Pictures 2: September 2015

I have to say; I do think that the whole birthday location was a bit extravagant. I'm sure Harper wouldn't have cared less if she had gone to a local hall or had the party at home - as long as there's some fun games, a bouncy castle and face painting, young children generally aren't really fussed about where they have their birthdays.

They are responsible. The party was held in Andrew's private apartments at BP and at the York family invitation and the refreshments paid for by Andrew.

There is no other way they could have had the party at BP otherwise. It is never for rent to private parties.

The party was in the 'private' apartments. The issue isn't with the royals having a private birthday party for their friends but that the friends happen to be the Beckhams - who are loathed by so many people - and the fact that it was the Yorks who hosted the party - and they are loathed by even more of the people.

If this had been Anne hosting them in her private apartment there, or Edward, then it wouldn't be garnering anywhere near the animosity.

The second issue is the releasing of the photos. Most of the royals have private events in their private apartments which they pay for themselves but the visitors don't advertise the facts by posting photos of the event everywhere - that was tacky by the Beckhams and only adds to the dislike of this family and the York's.

What I can see happening is a ban on the royal family having such private events with friends inside BP or KP or CH due to this - which would be unfortunate but could easily be the fall-out.

Might have been better all around if Andrew had insisted on the party being held at Royal Lodge instead of BP. Royal Lodge seemed to be good enough for his daughters' birthday parties. I just don't think the Yorks thought this thing through much. They probably also never figured that the Beckhams would go so public with the photos either.

It'll be a mistake that's never repeated again. That's for sure.

It seems that I missed that part of the report. I edited that particular part of my post.

I saw the pictures, and he doesn't seem to be enjoying himself. But, his default expression is somewhat stern, so what do I know.

I wonder if he's just lonely, and that's why he puts up with Fergie?

I know he once proposed marriage to another woman after the divorce, but she turned him down.
And unlike Charles, he doesn't seem to have a close circle of friends.

Andrew and Sarah has always been soulmates. They don't move on because they want to be together. Even the late Queen Mother knew that.

The only time I think Andrew is lonely is when he's on official engagements and tours. It's lonely doing all that work on your own and for so many years.

I've always admired Prince Andrew, ever since the Falklands conflict.

I'm his age. I saw him in the paper, with that rose when he came back from the South Atlantic. All I cared about at the time was ....what any empty-headed young person cared about --- the weekend.

Still, he registered. He was so handsome. Google "Prince Andrew Young". He was quite that cat's meow.

Nowadays, I still admire him. I like his fortitude, I like his ..royal aplomb, if that's the term. HRH The Princess Margaret is deceased, so someone has to carry the trident.
