The Duke allowed mobile phones to be used in the state room at St James’s Palace for the finals of the competition.

The Duke has made some special exemptions to usual Palace protocol for #Pitchatpalace

This is a unique day at the Palace because we are encouraging you to use your phones and electronic gadgetry.As a result of that I've decided there's a bit of a thing going around about selfies.

The internet’s reaction has been pretty predictable:

Prince Andrew is taking selfies. Dismantle the internet. Dismantle it to the ground.
