Many news sources were preoccupied with Prince Henry and Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex’s royal exit, or the trouble between Prince Henry and Prince William. However, we can’t take too much focus off of the scandal that’s been happening with Prince Andrew. And of course, we have the latest information.
For all of his life, Prince Andrew has lived a life of the highest privilege, having thrived in the royal spotlight. Despite going through a thunderous divorce from Sarah, Duchess of York, Prince Andrew came out unscathed in the public eye. Likewise, he’s utilized his inherited royal status to elevate his daughters, Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie while keeping the opportunity to reach some of the world’s major power players.
Then about a couple of years ago, the Duke of York’s reputation caught up with him. It was clear Prince Andrew was living in the latest news headlines. During the death of his friend who was also a convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, questions about the prince’s past came to light. There were talks surrounding the allegations of his inappropriate behavior with underage girls coming to the forefront.
Things got so heated, Prince Andrew stepped away from the royal life. Now we wonder if Prince Phillip and Queen Elizabeth disown him? Learn the latest details!
Queen Elizabeth II’s relationship with Prince Andrew
Queen Elizabeth II has always been very close with Prince Andrew. Amongst some of the latest information is the Duke of York’s ousting from the royal life which came after giving an explosive interview to BBC Newsnight. Rather than distance himself from Epstein, Prince Andrew stood confident, defending their relationship. According to some news sources, the prince also “came off as arrogant and boastful.”
Just three days after the interview, the latest news consisted of Prince Andrew releasing a statement saying, “It has become clear to me over the last few days that the circumstances relating to my former association with Jeffrey Epstein has become a major disruption to my family’s work and the valuable work going on in the many organizations and charities that I am proud to support.”
Queen Elizabeth II continued to privately support her son, being as though they’ve always had a close relationship.
Prince Phillip’s admiration for Prince Andrew
According to some of the latest news, Prince Phillip once admired Prince Andrew. Prince Phillip has been retired from his royal life for some years, Prince Phillip was supposedly instrumental in getting his son to step down from public life.
Express was informed that “It was a tense meeting and Phillip told his son he had to take punishment. There was no screaming or shouting but Phillip told him in no uncertain terms that he had to step down for the sake of the monarchy. Phillip doesn’t like trial by the media but he is so realistic enough to realize that Andrew’s actions were a danger to the very fabric of the Royal Family.”
Things were especially difficult for the Duke of Edinburgh who has always admired his son for his “playboy reputation”. But there’s little information regarding Prince Phillip having great regrets concerning the latest news with Prince Andrew. An insider informed The Sun, “Phillip regrets Andrew doesn’t know how to lead a simple life. He thinks he’s been too extravagant.”
Disowning Prince Andrew
As the latest intel, it’s clear that Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Phillip will never disown Prince Andrew. The Duke of York was not seen in Princess Beatrice’s public wedding photos. Additionally, we’re reporting that the Duke of York was not present in Prince Phillip’s 100th birthday celebration.
