Royal regift? Call it a long-term loan

Posted by Marilyn on May 11, 2006

Prince Andrew, Duke of York has a fondness for Canada having spent part of his youth attending Lakefield College in Peterborough, Ontario. Today he returned to Peterborough to donate three canoes to the Canadian Canoe museum. 

These canoes were official gifts to the royal family from Canada, and since the Queen and Prince Charles aren't using them, Prince Andrew decided to make a long-term loan to the museum.

    I wonder if Andrew has started to become more frugal due to press coverage of his spendthrift ways?

    I can imagine Prince Phillip still being keen to give it a go though
