Thought it might be a nice idea to have an official N-O thread dedicated to our tax-funded aristocratic relics of yesteryear. Bunch of arse.

 

Prince Edward: Duke of Edinburgh award death could make scheme more popular

By Greig Box-Turnbull 30/10/2009

Prince Edward has created outrage by suggesting the death of a boy doing a Duke of Edinburgh Award could attract more participants.

 

The Prince was visiting Sydney to mark the 50th anniversary of the adventure scheme when he made the extraordinary outburst.

 

He said he was not aware of the case of 17-year-old David Iredale, who died of dehydration after getting lost in the Bush in 2006.

 

But he told about how the death of a young British participant in the early years of the scheme boosted its popularity.

 

The prince, 45, declared: "Suddenly the award, which was new... its reputation among young people was, 'Wow, this is serious.

 

You could die doing this.'" Aussie commentators attacked his remarks as insensitive.

 

They also mocked the prince's fitness - referring to when he was 22 and forced to quit a Marine training course. David's mum Mary Anne refused to comment on Edward's remarks but blasted the Duke of Edinburgh Awards, adding: "It's not regulated well enough in Australia."

 

He's got a way to go before he matches the supreme performance of Philip, Harry or big brother Andy. But he's making progress.

The Facebook Princess Eugenie shows her party snaps and declares: I'm single and available

Unlike many royal portraits, these snaps of Princess Eugenie are unlikely to find their way into the National Gallery.

 

But then the younger daughter of the Duke of York has never been what you might call a traditional princess.

 

Whether hamming it up for the camera with her friends or downing shots of spirits on yet another raucous night out, 20-year-old Eugenie is revelling in her reputation as a party animal.

These little piggies: The princess and a girlfriend in a bizarre sticky-tape pose

That's the spirit: The-20-year old princess is seen downing a shot of spirits and poking her toungue out at the camera

 

The pictures show the Queen's granddaughter, who is sixth in line to the throne, drinking and dancing with pals on a variety of nights out, often clutching a packet of her favourite Marlboro Light cigarettes.

 

She can also been seen larking around with a roll of tape which she uses to create a grotesque 'piggy' face and sporting a variety of risque outfits showing off her curvaceous figure.

 

The images are on the Facebook page of a friend from Marlborough College, the £29,000-a year public school she attended until 2008. All can be freely accessed by the public.

 

There is also a link to Eugenie's own Facebook page which features a picture of her wearing a low-cut dress and posing provocatively with a giant ice cream at a fancy-dress party.

Risque: Eugenie shows off her figure and carouses with a male friend

 

The princess, who is about to embark on the second year of her degree in English Literature, History of Art and Politics at Newcastle University, declares that she is single and, romantically speaking, looking for 'random play'.

 

Like her elder sister Beatrice, she receives round-theclock police protection at a cost to the taxpayers of an estimated £500,000 a year.

 

Eugenie, younger daughter of Prince Andrew and his ex-wife, Sarah, Duchess of York, is a great favourite of the Queen. This summer she joined her grandmother on a cruise around Scotland  -  where evenings were spent playing board games and charades  -  looking demure in a pleated skirt and matching jacket.

 

But the photographs come as no surprise to those who know her. 'Even her father admits she is liable to be a bit of a tearaway,' says a family friend. 'She's a cross between Prince Harry and Princess Margaret.'

"Some Londoners agreed." :lol:

 

fucks sake though...what next?  always had a problem with the royal family, they're among the richest people in the country and should be treated as such, anyone saying otherwise should have a serious look at themselves

Don't have a problem with them tbh, no surprise there then. I actually have a bit of pride in our history and I'm not going to be held ashamed over it by some liberal, hippy do-gooders :pow:
