Royal FEUD: ‘Liability’ Prince Andrew SNUBBED by Prince Charles
PRINCE Charles snubbed his “liability” brother Prince Andrew in favour of his own unconventional vision of the monarchy, it is revealed in a documentary.
Prince Charles’ vision for a future monarchy was evident on the balcony of Buckingham Palace as the Royal Family celebrated the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.
Six senior members were photographed together during the celebrations, with Prince Philip absent in hospital due to a bladder infection.
Charles’ vision, the “magnificent seven” consisted of himself, Queen Elizabeth II, Prince William, Prince Harry, Prince Philip, Camilla Parker Bowles and Kate Middleton.
In revealing Netflix documentary: “The Royal House of Windsor”, the narrator explains “Charles wanted a slimmed-down, value for money monarchy, with no embarrassing hangers-on.”
The show reveals Charles’ brother, Prince Andrew’s antics over the years have led to nicknames including “Randy Andy” and “Air Miles Andy”.
Vanity Fair’s Royal Correspondent Katie Nicholl said: “He has been a liability to the Royal Family.”
Charles’ vision would exclude Prince Andrew’s daughters, Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice.
The narrator adds: “This is Charles wanting to secure the longevity and future of the House of Windsor.”
However, Prince Andrew did not take this very well.
The exclusion also creates a large gap in wealth and public notoriety, which Prince Andrew and his children are not fans of.
Royal expert Phil Dampier reveals: “Prince Andrew thinks that when the Duke dies and the Queen winds down, there should be a greater role for him and his girls.
“This is a bit of a power struggle, which Charles won’t be happy about.”
In the footage, the narrator reveals: “Andrew was furious, he feared his daughters, the princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, were going to be side-lined.”
He wrote to the Queen, insisting his girls must keep their royal status.
However, it is thought that the Queen sided with the heir to the throne, Charles.
Eventually, Prince Andrew admitted defeat in this matter and took to Twitter to issue a personal statement to state his daughters are: “Modern, working young women who happen to be members of the royal family.”
It comes after Labour students demanded Prince Andrew resigned from his position as Chancellor of Huddersfield University over his “blasé attitude” to the murder of Jamal Khashoggi.
