Royal Tournament gets modern look.

THE traditional Royal Tournament will be scrapped to make way for a more modern festival in the Millennium, the Ministry of Defence said yesterday.

A special show by the armed forces in 2000 will mark the start of a new style for the 118-year-old military spectacle, which raises cash for service charities.

Defence Secretary George Robertson said: "This is a new beginning, not an end, of the Tournament. My aim is to make it more relevant while retaining an element of pageantry."
