I am glad/hope there isn't a rift between Charles and Andrew. They're grown men, too old to be fighting.

HM is 90 now, and could live another 10+ years, like her mother. Maybe they're planning to have her children all retire when she passes, with the exception of Charles?

Air miles Andy up to his old tricks: Prince Andrew's helicopter jaunt costs you £3,000

THE Duke of York took a helicopter flight costing the taxpayer thousands of pounds to a royal engagement just seven miles away from Sandringham – despite planning to spend Christmas there in a fortnight’s time.

If they retire they do not get free lodgings. I wonder how will they pay thei houses then. And people will not accepts them getting the priveledges without working.

I think he's never had to pay for anything so he has no idea how much things cost. Very out of touch.  thumbsdown

Andrew paid the lease on Royal Lodge for 75 years so he will have lodgings for the rest of his life and for most, if not all, of his daughters' lives.

The helicopter story is a beat-up.

All the royals use helicopters all over the country for a range of engagements and many of them will be near a royal home or be close to where they will be for some other reason or other within a couple of weeks. This is just another '*despise* on Andrew' story probably as he has called out the media for the stories about his family in recent weeks.

What's a shame is that he continues to get away with this. It's no wonder Charles doesn't want him or his kids involved as a working royal in the slimmed down monarchy. It's also no wonder that he and his ex-wife and kids try to get back at Charles by interfering with Harry's life.

^ At least he was working during his trips. Although I do think he should cut back on spending, money is tight for many families these days and it doesn't look good.

On each of those visits he has been meeting with business people and often with the local Head of State.

I suspect that just as Charles, Camilla, William and Kate are being used to help with Brexit in Europe they government is using Andrew in that role in Asia and the Middle East where he already has many contacts.

I know the rumours that Charles plans a 'smaller royal family' but that is all they are - rumours. The origin of those rumours is a comment allegedly made by Charles in a 'Way Ahead Group' meeting in 1992. That group has been disbanded.

The suggestion also was never that the current working members of the family would stop doing so but rather that only William and Harry and their spouses would be required in the next generation.

That is even contradicted by the fact that I have heard that Beatrice wasn't told until 2011 that she wouldn't be needed ever and that was after she had started university. She had asked a number of times and been told she would be working in much the same was that Princess Alexandra has done and then after William and Kate's wedding was told 'you will never be working for the family'. The only other person who has now been told that is Eugenie, according to my sources.

Charles better wake up and smell the coffee about Bea and Eugenie. They do a good job for the Firm. Never embarrass. They do it right. Unlike Council Cath and his two spawn. Harry was doing a good job until all this recent disaster with his spouting off and with the girl friend. Willy performs unbelievably poorly. Bea and Eugenie cannot help who their parents are. These girls should be given a larger role.

^

They are articulate and intelligent and know how to behave when carrying out Royal duties.  They can also emphasise with people in a way council Cath can't.  They don't crotch and butt  flash, point or guffaw in an unseemingly manner either.  They behaved with dignity in the Ascot carriages not in the open mouthed idiotic way Cath did.  PA is said to be proud of their abilities  to do  excellent job.

They really need to be considered. Harry and Oh So Weak Willy do not want the job. The Viper and Her Council Estate Daughter do but they don't count. Move the two loser boys aside and give it to Beatrice or Eugenie.

I like that Bea and Eugenie, even though they could benefit from a stylist to find clothes that are more flattering to their figures, never flash their privates in public. We don't have any photos of their bare bottoms, breasts, or frontal area.  thankyou The same cannot be said about Kate or Meghan.  thumbsdown

If it's true that Bea was told in 2011 that she wouldn't be needed to work for the Firm, that just confirms that Kate doesn't like the York sisters. They didn't get along before the engagement so Kate wanted to get rid of them once she married in. The problem is that William, Kate, and Harry are lazy (bare minimum that they can get away with) as far as doing appearances and the RF could benefit from Bea and Eugenie doing some appearances. Also shows how stubborn PW is that he still married Kate even though his family didn't like her.

Bea and Eugie are lovely and would do a great job, unfortunately for them their uncle Charles is a greedy and insecure man, who does not want to pay for them and does not want to share the spotlight with others.

^ Charles is a short sighted fool then. Those two princesses do good work. His two spawn are severely damaged and Council Cath and that actress are total embarrassments.

The Monarchy will be on a very slippery slope once the Queen goes.  If Chaz has any sense he would sideline embarrassing Cath and use the York girls who behave with decorum, warmth and genuine compassion and QE likes them too.  Prince Andrew needs to pull his socks up and repair his reputation.

Beatrice and Eugenie are blood princesses with titles. IMO they should be working for "The Firm". I know Kate probably doesn't like them (skating event, fashion show in the pre-engagement years), but does Charles forget they are his nieces, not some random strangers? Even if he doesn't get along well with his brother (maybe resents him being the "favourite" child even though Andrew is 11 years younger and they basically didn't even grow up together because they were so far apart in age), he is still family.
