Britain's Duke of York to discuss trade, investment with Thai Deputy PM

BANGKOK, June 8 (TNA) - His Royal Highness Prince Andrew, Britain's Duke of York, will discuss trade and investment with Thai Deputy Prime Minister and Commerce Minister Somkid Jatusripitak here Thursday with an aim to strengthen bilateral trade ties between the United Kingdom and Thailand.
Prince Andrew, who is a special UK representative for international trade and investment, arrived at Bangkok Military Airport on Wednesday, the first of the royal guests for the celebrations marking His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej's 60th anniversary of his accession to the throne.

Duke of York to talk trade with Somkid

In his mission to boost trade and investment between the United Kingdom and Thailand, His Royal Highness Prince Andrew, the Duke of York, will today meet caretaker Deputy Prime Minister Somkid Jatusripitak.
A source at the Commerce Ministry said the possibility of forming a free-trade agreement between the two countries would also be discussed.
The meeting will be arranged on the sidelines of the prince's visit to Thailand for the 60th anniversary of His Majesty the King's accession to the throne.

Prince Andrew, who will stay until Wednesday, is a special UK representative for international trade and investment. Each year he has at least five overseas visits to strengthen trade cooperation, and this year Thailand is his focus.

I so agree, HRH. I may be wrong but Angie Everhart doesn't strike me as a woman with a particular amount of class.

If they've chosen to be friends following the divorce, maybe not just for the kids but for themselves, who's to say he's wrong in doing that? Too many divorced couples are bitter and hateful towards each other; I think it's rather nice that despite all that has gone down between them, they can still be friends.

ysbel 09-08-2006 11:30 PM

I just hope they're not planning on re-marrying. That would be a mistake.

NO (thank God) they will NOT be in a royal act together.

The article is specific about that and says that she was invited at the British Memorial Garden site because she apparently has a special link with the 9/11 events considering that her charity (Chances for Children) was located in the towers and that one of the red-haided dolls that was sold by this organization was found at the site. Andrew is the ONE attending officially as a royal. And I don't believe that they will act together at the same event but I might just be wishing that.

TonyaR 09-09-2006 04:21 AM

They seem to have an extremely civil divorce. Regardless of what Sarah has done in the past, that speaks well for her character and her concern for her daughters that she's made an effort to get along with Andrew and be pleasant all of these years. It could so easily have gone another way....

Incas 09-09-2006 11:05 AM

I remember in an interview, Sarah mentioned that she was supposed to be at the WTC that day. Her charity, Children in Crisis, had an office with Canter Fitzgerald. Perhaps on a more personal level, Sarah wanted to participate in the anniversary service. That she is going with Andrew doesn't necessarily have to do with her relationship with her ex-husband.

CATS 09-09-2006 09:11 PM

I think it rather sad, some of the comments made about sarah. She is going to pay her respects to the British that were lost on 9/11, some who were her friends. In fact had she not been late that day it could have been her life that was lost too. Andrew had been on his way to New York that day when his plane was sent back to England. He could have ended up raising those girls on his own.

kimebear 09-09-2006 09:48 PM

Andrew and Sarah can't win. If they had a cool post-divorce relationship, they would have seen Sarah labeled "bitter". Having a good post-divorce relationship also brings out all the Sarah haters. She was married to him for several years, she is the mother of his children. They are going to have a relationship in some form for the rest of their lives. He has had plenty of opportunity to re-marry and has not done so. They obviously enjoy each other's company. Let it go already. If Andrew can forgive her, and he was the injured party, who are we to say otherwise?

Roslyn 09-10-2006 06:08 AM

Well we'll know what happens at the ceremony soon enough.

As for the relationship Andrew and Sarah have, I think it's splendid that they get on so well and that there has been no sniping and bitterness since the divorce. They are behaving like mature adults should, but seldom do.

I think it would be nice if they were secretly back together.

Yes, she was married to him but for a few years. If Andrew can forgive her, and he was the injured party, who are we to say otherwise? I'm just a concerned fan of Andrew:ermm: . I wonder if, after the infamous incidents and dishonors brought up on him by his ex-wife, he might not have a self-esteem problem and be afraid he's not worth of any true love. After all, Sarah's father said how much she was more in love with being part of the royal family than with Andrew. And her actions proved it.

Randy Andy with a self esteem problem? I don't think so. If he does have one, it pre-dates Sarah as he is living the exact same playboy life now as he was before he got married. I like Andrew. He was a brave soldier. But it does take two to make a marriage work. Sarah should not have had an affair, but he should have fought harder to have her with him during his naval duty when she asked to go. After all if it was okay for the queen (then princess) to go with her husband, a mere duchess should have been allowed the same. I think many women who are only allowed to be with their husbands for 30 days in a year would look for comfort elsewhere. Especially ones under the intense pressures of being in the royal family, disliked by many of the royals and members of the press who berated her constantly and public who couldn't stop comparing Diana to Sarah. I'm not excusing Sarah, because I do not believe in infidelity and she was wrong, but logically I can see how it happened. To keep rehashing the same nonsense over and over again (the affair, the affair, the toes, OH MY!!!!) just gets tiring and has no place in a current news thread. Andrew has his work activities, he dates and he spends time with his ex-wife. It works for him. All the freedom of dating whom he wants, and none of the responsibility of being a married man. When he wants family life, he calls Sarah and the girls and he has it. Maybe, just maybe, they both like it this way. As for what her father said, well, I've never heard this before. In any case, true or not, it was an inconsiderate thing for a father to do to his daughter in public (think Jon Voight with Angelina Jolie), so I do not hold a high opinion of him for doing it.

Zonk 09-10-2006 01:07 PM

Eloquently spoken Kimebear!

Many have said the same but alas to deaf ears.

Princess BellyFlop 09-10-2006 01:48 PM

Hey I just mentionned a possible explanation and did not list all the things I sincerely dislike about his infamous ex-wife because we all know about it.

As far as Andrew pre-Sarah playboy life, in my opinion it just brings water to my theory of a possible self-esteem problem because he was touched where it hurts the most when it became public knowledge that his royal wife was cheating on him while vacationning with their children, pictures and all. As a bully doesn't like to be bullied, a seducer doesn't like when his sincere life partner goes out to seduce others especially when the kids are around and when it becomes very very public.

I'm not deaf and I'm not blind either.

kimebear 09-10-2006 09:46 PM

Again, he has obviously forgiven her. That's good enough for me.

Warren 09-11-2006 12:06 AM

... and on that note of forgiveness we'll return to discussion of Duke of York "news", and preferably more current and relevant than Sarah's past indiscretions.

Andrew's fear for Fergie on 9/11

Prince Andrew has spoken about the worry and fear he felt for his ex-wife Sarah Ferguson, the day of the September 11 attacks on America. The Prince himself was on a flight to Atlanta at the time which was turned back.


Prince Andrew Set To Give 9/11 Speech In New York

Britain's Prince Andrew will publicly speak in New York today in remembrance of 9/11. The prince will make a speech in Manhattan, paying tribute to the families who lost loved ones in the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

kwanfan 09-11-2006 09:49 PM

9/11 must have been incredibly frightening for Beatrice and Eugenie. Knowing one parent had an office at the WTC and another was flying would have been very scary.

ysbel 09-11-2006 09:55 PM

I've never heard of Andrew being an inattentive father. I think he has always been praised for being an attentive father to his daughters. He shares custody with Sarah and seems to take the girls seriously.

I also haven't heard any recent wild stories of Andrew partying like he used to before he was married. He's settled down considerably since his pre-marriage days. The most controversial thing he does nowadays is play golf - much like most other well-heeled middle-aged men.

stellad 09-11-2006 10:00 PM

I have to agree with you Ysbel. If some of the articles are led to believe (in New Zealand) anyway, he is a doting father.

I think it says alot about the DOY that he has never publically spoken harshly about his ex wife nor any of her ridiculous antics. There have been many many opportunities for him to have hopped on the "dis Sarah" bandwagon and he never did. He could have played up the 'I am the Victim' theme after their divorce and probably could have garnered considerable support and sympathy from the general public at Sarah's expense. But he didn't go that route and for that you've got to respect him. I think it smacks of class and good example that he and Sarah have remained on such close terms. He really sets the bar for a dignified divorced man.

Zonk 09-12-2006 01:59 PM

I love that photo! I know its a serious occassion..and one can't get a read from just looking at a picture...but despite the divorce...you (or rather I) can tell that they have a connection that extends beyond their daughters. Its too bad they can't be together...but whatever works for them (in this case friendship) works for me!

I must say I agree with you, Bella. Prince Andrew came out of his divorce with real dignity, in spite of all dificulties, that were on the way.
I am glad they managed to mantain friendly and warm relationships after the divorce.

Prince Andrew and Sarah have set a wonderful example of how to get along well after they divorced. Their daughters seem well adjusted because of it. I think that the Prince and Sarah still do love each other. But royal life for Sarah just doesn't work. It was great to see them together on this 9/11 advent. Are there anymore pictures???

I am glad they managed to mantain friendly and warm relationships after the divorce.

Well of course he came out of his divorce with dignity -» he's simply a true prince.

You know, I alway thought Andrew was the nicest of the Windsor brothers; Charles seemed somewhat diffident and Edward always seemed the bratty kid brother but despite his Randy Andy past, Andrew just always seemed like a nice guy.

I liked the fact that he supported the Queen and acted as the public spokesperson for the family when her favorite home Windsor Castle burned down during the same time that he was going through the worst of his marriage breakup.

I think it says a lot about a man if he can look after his mum when his own life is going to pieces. :)

I would say Andrew was at a halloween party on the weekend. If go to getty images and conpair pictures on the 30 & 31, his hair has very little grey hair on the 30. Then on the 30 he really still has his grey hair.

Prince Andrew visits Chennai

There were no insulting security men around when The Duke of York arrived at functions in Chennai, quite unlike what the Chennai press endured when Bollywood actress Aishwarya Rai came to launch the exclusive Longines boutique recently.

Prince Andrew Meets Bollywood Movie Stars

Prince Andrew apparently likes to mingle with the stars no matter where he goes. Even if they're not "A" List Hollywood celebrities, that's okay too.
The royal recently made a trip to India this week where he got an exclusive taste of Bollywood.

Prince Andrew seems to do alot of work representing Britain in the economic field. I know there have been complaints about his first-class travel arrangements and the such but he does seem to always be on the go to promote Britain. You don't hear too much about him vacationing or having alot of fun. Seems it's strictly business.

seto 11-13-2006 09:02 AM

Andrew appears to be taking some time out of the spotlight. There are no dates for him doing anything in public other than the rememberance service.

seto 11-16-2006 03:07 PM

Sarah and the girls apparently were with Andrew in India there are pictures in hello magazine.

CATS 11-20-2006 02:45 PM

It was during the girls half term break, so they didn't miss any school.
