Prince Andrew: Brexit will bring opportunities

Posted on June 16th, 2017

Prince Andrew, who was a trade envoy for Great Britain from 2001 to 2011, has told the BBC that UK businesses should make the most of international opportunities arising from Brexit.

But he conceded that there will be several years of uncertainty and upheaval and he was "as much in the dark as anyone else" about what was going to happen.

It is very unusual for members of the Royal Family to comment on political issues and Prince Andrew is the first to speak out about Brexit.

He told the BBC's Sharanjit Leyl that firms were cautious about Brexit, but that the UK "should be engaging with as many different markets as we possibly can and looking at the best of things rather than necessarily the worst of things", adding: "The world is your oyster."
