Royal visit to Marlow this week

Bucks Free Press: The Duke Of York The Duke Of York

ONE of the Royal family will visit Marlow on Thursday.

The Duke Of York, Prince Andrew, is set to meet pupils at Great Marlow School in Bobmore Lane, as part of a Young Enterprise scheme.

The special guest will observe a Learn to Earn programme, designed to introduce students to budgeting and encouraging them to think about their future careers and lifestyles.

His Royal Highness will then meet a group of students who have set up their own business as part of the charity’s company programme, which introduces young people aged 15 to 19 to the world of business as they set up and run their own companies for a year.

Michael Mercieca, Young Enterprise CEO, said: “His Royal Highness is a strong supporter of student enterprise and he has worked tirelessly to encourage young people to aspire to be better than they thought they could be.”

That is a terrible picture of the Duke, I'm sure there are more flattering ones than that!
Hope the visit goes well and that much needed income is generated from all the well-wishers and journalists who will visit the town as a result! :)

Could they have not sent a royal that people know and recognise? This is like being told you're going to get a visit from a member of the Eastenders cast and that Winston dude (super-extra) turning up.

I suppose he was the only one left, as the more important Royals had more much needed engagements to make.

Better to send one, than none at all.

Quite right; why should they bother to send someone who's served in the military, and risked his life saving wounded soldiers from Sir Tristram & Sir Galahad. After all, it's not as if he's done anything useful, is it? What a nasty-minded bunch you people are.

Is Sir Tristram & Sir Galahad a euphemism for The Duchess of York?

He only served as a tick in the box for the Royals. He soon quit his post when the required time came around i.e. as soon as possible.

Will he be flying in to top up his airmiles?
Another pointless member of the freeloading benefit scrounging dysfunctional first family.
They live in a council house, don't work and receive state benefits.
Will Liz have to pay the bedroom tax?

You Lucky Lucky people, 'Airmiles Andy' is coming to your town. Maybe you could ask him about his work as ambassador for dodgy british arms firms, selling weapons to countries with appalling human rights records, who just love to 'grease' the occaisional palm.
It's time we abolished the (un) civil list.

If you're going to put your prejudices on public display, it pays to get your facts straight; he signed on for 12 years, and served from April 1979 until July 2001.

And do try to show an interest, even if it hurts:-
first he learned to fly the Gazelle and Sea King helicopters; his service in the Falklands included using his helicopter, with its chaff, as a decoy for Exocets, ensuring that the carriers did not get hit.
After the Falklands he became a helicopter warfare instructor, and served as a Lynx pilot on HMS Cambeltown for 3 years; he then passed his ship command exam in 1992, and commanded the minehunter HMS Cottesmore until 1994, after which he became senior pilot with 815NAS, finally going to the MOD, and working as an officer of the Diplomatic Directorate of the Naval Staff until his retirement.
Hardly makes him a freeloader, does it?

And all because he was a minor Royal given a leg up.
Wise up man. What gives a family of any country the right to demand tax from the people, the right to live in luxury and palaces?

You have evidence to back that up, or are you just giving your prejudices full reign, as usual?
I can think of 650 families, who are living off our taxes, while showing utter contempt for the voters who gave them the chance.

Make that 651. They are not prejudices, they are my opinions of which I am entitled to, living in a democracy. Respect my beliefs and I will respect yours. They way you are going on you would think that any one who disagrees or criticizes them should be sent to the tower. Hold on isn't communism.
