Second, the Duke of York attended Russian fashion week in Moscow at least twice, in 2004 and 2006.
Moreover, what was he doing at a Matthew Williamson catwalk show in Moscow? Oh yes, he was the UK special representative for trade. How convenient. This is the role that had him tagged as Air Miles Andy.
According to another English fashion designer, Jenny Packham, the Royal demanded she attend a VIP reception where he was holding court alone with young Russian models.
I know this is a shock…not..
According to Buckingham Palace, the Duke’s appearances were a part of his allegedly official duties.
Then Prince Andrew later that day enraged the designer at British Day at the 2006 Russian Fashion Week.
Its quite a story (see clip below). She was angry about his behaviour for a long time.
We have seen Jenny’s designs and they are absolutely beautiful.
