‘Lots to give!’ Andrew ‘dreaming of comeback’ after Queen engagement

309

PRINCE ANDREW’s ambition to return to royal life remains “undimmed” despite the mixed reception he received for appearing at a major royal event on the arm of the Queen in recent weeks, a source has claimed.

At the end of last month the Duke of York, 62, made headlines after accompanying the monarch to a memorial service for the late Prince Philip, who died last April. The occasion marked Prince Andrew’s first public appearance since reaching a settlement in his sexual abuse civil case with accuser Virginia Giuffre.

The settlement is not an admission of guilt and Andrew vehemently denies the claims.

Andrew’s willingness to place himself in the public eye at such a high-profile royal event caused further speculation over a possible comeback into the spotlight for the Duke, as sources claim the royal still harbours ambitions of a public role.

One source told The Times: “In the past, he has done a lot of good things for charities, also in his capacity as UK trade ambassador.

“If he is rehabilitated, then I think he can do a lot of good. The settlement had no admission of guilt.”

While another added: “There are rightfully some questions of him but there is rarely a balanced judgment of him in the media. He has a lot to give to people who will let him give.”

One more said: “His ambition to return to public life and his belief that he can be of service remains undimmed. But he is the only one who sees it that way.”

Prince Harry appears to have picked up a habit from Meghan Markle’s speech, a royal expert has claimed.

Harry, 37, and Meghan Markle, 40, have become “too big for their boots”, according to royal biographer Angela Levin in a discussion on Meghan’s application to trademark the word ‘Archetypes’.

The Duchess of Sussex has recently unveiled her first Spotify series – a podcast about female stereotypes, in which she vows to investigate “labels that try to hold women back” called Archetypes.

Ms Levin pointed out that Meghan’s speeches have impacted the way Harry speaks in public.
