Pancake Tossing Competition 2016

9th February 2016

Kate vs HM Queen

We touched a nerve today - Neil and Tina spark a feud over the story that the Queen travelled on a train (Costing £54 first class) and Kate travelled the same journey in a helicopter (Costing £3,000).

Neil claims Kate made a PR mistake but Tina thinks that we are too quick to judge and £3000 in the big scheme of things is not that much money - compared to the value added to the UK by the Royal Family - here are some of your thoughts.

Tina is right. The Queen would have entourage and security staff so would have the whole carriage booked. How many seats? Plus staff in another carriage taking up seats. Add up the whole cost. Kate is to be the next Queen of England. From a security perspective, that cost of the helicopter is minimal, not forgetting oh so convenient for her and the security detail. Andy.

I'm with Neil on this one. We all lead busy life's. But with the economy as it is at the moment I think Kate should have gone on the train. Besides Kate has got nannies and helpers with the children unlike most people. Yes she's a royal but if it's good enough for the Queen than it should be good enough for Kate.

I don't really care if the Royal's take the train or fly. It was Tina's comment that upset my husband and I was that £3000 wasn't a lot of money, tell that to a homeless person or someone who really needs that money.

Neil you're being ridiculous. 1. The queen owns a private jet for goodness sake. 2 they would've taken 4-5 cars and met her there. If it wasn't a pr stunt why didn't she ride back in one of those?
