Well actually, is he required to go through the checks? The Queen certainly isn't but I suppose it depends on what capacity he was there as. Either way, he's not exactly a terrorism suspect is he?

I think Andrew should queue for over an hour in a queue and paid his own airfare like the rest of us.

And if the Royals want to set a good example maybe they should pay inheritance tax.
