March 2008: The Telegraph reports today that Prince Charles and Camilla have hired Leander, from owner Sir Donald Gosling, for a four week tour of the Caribbean, in March.
They negotiated a reduced rate from the usual £40,000 a day fee. Among their list of destinations is volcano-stricken Montserrat. Sir Donald Gosling is the NCP car park tycoon.
According to the Telegraph, the Duchess of Cornwall has also holidayed on Leander in the South of France. They also mention that Leander was named after the warship Sir Donald served on.
This will be the first official UK royal use of a yacht, since the decomissioning of Britannia - which didn't even have a swimming pool - in 1997. Clarence House says by using Leander they will dramatically reduce costs and emissions from a typical tour of the islands.
Leander is currently in Falmouth Harbour in Antigua.

18 August 2008: Al Mirqab pulls in to Port Hercule… Here's a high res photo…
20 July 2008: Another super shot of Al Mirqab, this time in Kristiansand in Norway, sent in by Mark. We are very impressed by the Nokia N95 5 megapixel image quality!
16 June 2008: Nice new photo of Al Mirqab from Werner in the Heligoland.
27 April 2008: nice new photos of Al Mirqab from PB.
The new Al Mirqab, formerly known as Project May, was launched at the Wewelsfleth yard in April. It's one of the largest yachts ever built. Seems to borrow much of the exterior styling from Carinthia VII.
