Prince Andrew and Macca to team up to honour John Lennon

Wednesday June 17, 2009

He grew up during the height of Beatlemania and his childhood would have rung to the sounds of hits such as All You Need Is Love and Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.  

So Prince Andrew will, no doubt, appreciate the opportunity he has reportedly been offered to host a gala honouring late Beatles legend John Lennon later this month.  

The star-studded Love And Money event will take place in New York before a line-up of guests including the legendary musician's bandmate Paul McCartney - pictured in 2000 with the Prince - and widow Yoko Ono, reports the Daily Mail.  

Britain's Got Talent judge Simon Cowell is also expected to be in the audience.  

The ceremony will also give the Duke of York a chance to meet up with his ex-wife Sarah Ferguson, who is based in New York and is still close to the royal.  

He's said he enjoys visiting Sarah in America "as it’s quite nice just being known as the ex-husband - or not even recognized"
