Prince Andrew at 50

The Prince Andrew celebrates his 50th birthday tomorrow, Friday 19th February, 2010.

HRH will be abroad, marking the occasion in Verbier with his ex-wife Sarah, Duchess of York and their daughters, TRH Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie.

The family will host a private celebratory dinner in the Swiss Alps ski-resort.

Next Thursday, 25th February, Prince Andrew will attend an official birthday reception at Buckingham Palace for around 300 guests.

The Queen, the Duke of Edinburgh and other senior members of the royal family will be there, alongside representatives of Prince Andrew's charities, patronages and military regiments.

The English National Ballet, of which HRH is patron, will be among the acts performing in the Grand Ballroom of the palace, to mark the occasion.

TRH Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie and Sarah, Duchess of York are also planning a private party for family and friends at St James's Palace the following evening.

Prince Andrew is apparently tee-total and will be adhering to his choice beverage, still water, rather than champagne, for his 50th birthday celebrations.
