FLASHBACK to March 5 1989:
HRH Prince Edward takes over from DJ Andi Bird (left) at a 24 hour sponsored disco dance in Basildon. Monies raised will be shared between local youth group and the duke of Edinburgh’s Award special projects committee of which the prince is Chairman.
Go-ahead Prince Edward was aged 24 at the time. One day all the cool kids would be wearing double-breasted suits and cufflinks.
