I admit that Prince Andrew should know about different cultures and modify the way he talks accordingly, but if this was a “raucous” lunch as described, he won’t have been the only one talking like that. His remarks are probably, therefore, being quoted out of context.

What stands out a mile here is that an American woman was shocked by a British man’s humour. British humour is like that, and she should, equally, have known that! British people laugh at different things, and our humour tends to include more “allowable” areas than other nations’.
