Despite being only a few weeks into the new year, the 95-year-old monarch has been put through the wringer, having made the decision to strip Prince Andrew of his military titles and royal patronages and dealing with Prince Harry’s recent security concerns, should he return to the UK. Speaking to OK! royal expert Jennie Bond said the monarch is likely to be particularly upset by the antics of her son and grandson.
She said: “I think The Queen will be holding her hands up in despair with her children and some of her grandchildren.
“Everybody feels for the Queen now with the Andrew debacle, but I think there has to be some equity between Harry and Andrew now.
“There was the argument, and it probably wasn’t correct, but if Harry has been stripped of his titles, then Andrew should have been some time ago.”
Over the last few days Prince Andrew has been in the spotlight following an explosive ITV documentary.

This suggests his lawyers will seek a judicial review if police protection isn’t provided when he and his family are in the UK.
The Duke has offered to pay for his security when in the country.
A statement from the Duke said: “Prince Harry inherited a security risk at birth, for life.
“He remains sixth in line to the throne, served two tours of combat duty in Afghanistan, and in recent years his family has been subjected to well-documented neo-Nazi and extremist threats.
“The UK will always be Prince Harry’s home and a country he wants his wife and children to be safe in. With the lack of police protection, comes too great a personal risk.”
