The Duke of York was leaving the Royal Family Christmas Day service when he gave a bemused fan some bizarre advice on how to stay warm.
Prince Andrew spoke to a woman who was standing amongst the crowd outside of the Sandringham estate. The video appears to show the 62-year-old Duke telling the woman to “stand on a newspaper” to keep warm.
A video shows Andrew talking with a group of people when he asked one woman if she has cold feet.
She responded, telling the royal she was “freezing”.
He replied: “Did you know the trick is to bring a newspaper? Stand on a newspaper and you insulate your feet.”

The lady he was speaking to said “thank you” before Andrew walked away.
A local, who filmed the interaction, said: “The whole thing was really odd.”
“I don’t imagine the woman will be testing his theory anytime soon,” they told The Sun.
The conversation took place on Christmas Day after the Royal Family left the building following their first festive service without Queen Elizabeth II.
Andrew is no longer allowed an office in the palace, a source claimed
Prince Andrew made a surprise appearance at the annual Christmas walkabout.
He walked behind senior members of the family as the crowds lined up outside of the St Mary Magdalene Church on the Norfolk estate.
King Charles was joined by Camilla, Queen Consort, at the head of the group, while Prince William and Kate followed behind them with their three children.
It comes after King Charles reportedly told Andrew he will no longer be allowed to have an office in Buckingham Palace or use the building as a corresponding address.
The Duke spoke with members of the public
A source told the Sun: “Any presence at the Palace is officially over.
“The King has made it clear. He isn’t a working royal. He’s on his own.”
The skeleton staff retained since he stepped down from public duty three years ago could now face redundancy.
