Fury as Prince Edward takes £37,000 taxpayer-funded private jet for 133-mile trip between engagements (when the train would have cost £250)

    Queen's youngest son travelled between Poole in Dorset and Tamworth today
    Normal hire cost of plane for this distance would be £37,150 for a one-way trip
    Anti-monarchy campaign group blasted Earl of Wessex for 'extravagance'

http://www.dailymail.co.u...ommemoration-service.html

Andy isn't the only one collecting airmiles. And none of them should ever claim to be "frugal". Snare

I love how BP justify it by saying that it helps to do this as it reduces the levels of inconvenience for the general public due to his security entail... that would never have been an issue as when royals travel on public planes they get special measures in place anyway. One woman tweeted a couple of years ago that she saw sophie and Louise skipping the queues at the airport when they were traveling with Louise’s school for a trip. Even on private trips they get special treatment.

Do their passports stare anywhere that they are royalty?

I generally think Ed and Sophie are one of the better reps - apart from Anne - and then something like this comes out - as he does not have a daytime job why not spread the events so he can take train or car ?? It just smaks of entitlement big time - which will end when he is no longer son of reigning monarch

I think so.

I remember there was a image of the name page of Diana's many years ago which stated her name as HRH The Princess of Wales so I would assume Sophie's is HRH The Countess of Wessex.

I don't understand how the security detail would inconvenience anyone in Edward's case, wouldn't it just be him boarding a train with a few other guys? Would they really need to rope off everything and bring in the bomb sniffing dogs just for him to get on a train?

Yes, their titles are listed as well as full names.

It's a cheap excuse. If Liz can travel regularly on "normal" trains like every other person, then so can Ed. And all the others.

Judging by how infrequently we see James riding i'm going to assume he doesn't like it as much as his sister and dad.  Even Sophie is rarely see on horseback nowadays, although it is nice that it's something Louise and her dad can do together.
