Andrew is reportedly refusing to see anyone following the Coronation as he refuses to budge from a property that has allegedly been reserved for Prince William and Princess Kate.
King Charles could reportedly cut of Andrew’s utilities to get him to leave
A source said to be in regular contact with Andrew told The Times that the King wouldn’t cut Andrew’s utilities off.
However, another source told the Mail on Sunday that Andrew fears there could be a genuine possibility of this happening.
They said: “He’s concerned now the Coronation is over, the knives are out. He’s worried that the royals might even turn off the utilities to get him out of there. But we’re dealing with human beings, not real estate.”
The source’s comments come as a flurry of reports emerge about the potential impending eviction of Andrew as sources suggest the Royal Lodge is being lined up for Prince William and Princess Kate.
Prince Andrew no longer carries out royal duties
The Royal Lodge was reportedly being lined up for William and Kate
A source reportedly said: “The lease is in the duke’s name so no one can take that away from him.
“It has never been suggested that it could be taken away from him. It’s a long lease with 80 to 90 years left on it.
“This is a lease between him and the Crown Estate. That’s not a matter for the King. It’s a matter for the chancellor of the exchequer.”
They added: “The only way you could get him to move out would be through an arrangement – he would have to agree.”
If Andrew wants to honour the lease on the Royal Lodge it would mean he would stay there until it expires.
The Mail on Sunday has previously reported that Andrew has become fragile in recent years, but that he refuses to budge from the property.
Andrew has been forced to step down from royal duties in recent years after he was accused of having sex with Virginia Giuffre when she was a teenager. He has always denied these claims.
The source told the Mail that Andrew is reportedly “refusing to see anybody” and asked whether it was fair that Andrew was being kicked out of the Royal Lodge.
More than just a question of eviction or no eviction, the Royal Family’s public arguments over mansions as the population gets poorer and the monarch gets richer, as revealed in the Sunday Times Rich List, have been scrutinised.
The King reportedly has double the wealth of his mother
One of the King’s most valuable assets is Balmoral Castle
The King reportedly has double the wealth of his late mother, Queen Elizabeth II, with more than £600 million.
It was reported last year that the King’s fortune has been built from his property assets and building house developments.
The most valuable assets in his possession are Sandringham and Balmoral. Both have thousands of acres of land.
The revelation comes as the UK’s cost of living crisis continues to deepen and food prices continue to rise ever higher.
