Was it something he said ?

I was just looking at Royal events scheduled for the Jubilee year. The Royal family will be doing a lot of foreign travel this year, representing the Queen by visiting lots of the countries that were coloured pink on old maps: assorted realms, Commonwealth countries, Crown dependencies and British Overseas Territories.

The blurb on the Jubilee website states: 'Her Majesty has asked that these visits include the following', with a list of who is going where.
For example:
Prince Harry, and Prince Edward and his wife are being sent to tour the Caribbean. Prince Andew is off to India. Charles and Camilla seem to be travelling the furthest, visiting Australia and Canada, via Papua New Guinea and the Channel Islands.

The Duke of Kent is down for the Falkland Isands and Uganda. He must have said something to annoy the Queen to get picked for those two jolly holiday spots.

I suspect the Duke of Kent lost bigtime in the Balmoral gin rummy tournament at Christmas. He ought to be grateful that he didn't get requisitioned as this year's British entry for Eurovision as well...
