Mr Page claimed on one occasion he entered Prince Andrew’s bedroom and saw 72 stuffed teddy bears on the Duke of York’s bed.
He recalled a “laminated card” with the image of the bed, complete with the line-up of teddies, which was then shown to him by a colleague during an alarm check for the royal apartments.
The card would remain in a cabinet near the bed, according to Mr Page’s colleague, so that the maids could “put them back exactly like it’s in that picture”.
A long serving lady-in-waiting to the late Queen Elizabeth II has issued a warning about the relationship between the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, according to a royal biographer.
He then claimed: “If they don’t, he shouts and screams.”
Mr Page said he had served as a royal protection officer between the years of 1998 and 2004, based at Buckingham Palace.
The senior royals within his remit were the late Queen Elizabeth II, her husband, Prince Philip, and the Duke of York.
Mr Page recounted his first impression of Prince Andrew as “very obnoxious” and an “angry individual”.
As the only one of the Queen’s children who resided at Buckingham Palace at the time, Mr Page described his experiences as “purely” with the Duke of York, gaining what he claimed to be an insight into Prince Andrew’s behaviour towards members of the royal household, and all those who worked to maintain it.
Mr Page claimed the Queen’s second-youngest son would “fly off the handle” over small inconveniences, and that he would resort to being “verbally abusive”.
This would involve shouting and swearing, the former protection officer added, and would amount to an overly “rude individual”.
Mr Page then called the Duke of York the most “self-entitled” member of the Royal Family, adding: “He stuck out like a sore thumb.”
He was “definitely” favoured by the late monarch over her other children, Mr Page claimed, and that he was “left to get on with whatever he wanted”.
Unlike his siblings, the Duke of York has had his patronages and affiliations returned to the monarch, and has been largely absent from Royal Family events.
A Buckingham Palace statement in January said the decision had been made “with the Queen’s approval and agreement”.
The statement from the Palace said the Duke, in light of the case, “will continue not to undertake any public duties and is defending this case as a private citizen”.
The Duke remains largely away from Royal Family events, and new reports claim his elder brother, King Charles III, has confirmed he will not be permitted to return to working royal life.
