Prince Andrew’s fall from grace began in 2020 when his relationship with convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein came under the microscope.
After the royal gave a disastrous interview to the BBC denying that a teenage girl was “sex trafficked” to him on three occasions, he was gradually removed from high-profile public duties.
Prince Charles, Prince William and Kate are understood to be the royals most against any kind of reintegration of Prince Andrew back into public life.
That’s causing some anger from Prince Andrew’s daughters, according to royal commentator Neil Sean.
“There is a big story in the royal family that has remained largely under the radar, and it’s to do with Prince William, the Duchess of Cambridge, and William’s father Prince Charles,” Sean recently told The Express.
“According to very good sources, Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice are seemingly struggling to remain cordial with Prince William, Catherine, and Charles.
“It stems from the deal organized by William, the Queen, and Prince Charles to remove their father Prince Andrew from royal duties following his disgrace in recent years.”
Sean said the “thawing” between the two families in the past two years had been difficult.
“Prince William and Charles are doing this for the benefit of the monarchy,” he said.
“They are reading the public mood, which is saying that Andrew should permanently retire from public life.
“But Andrew wants to make a return which he thinks could be achieved by his daughters carrying out charitable work.”
Sean said when Prince Charles takes the throne, any kind of reinstatement of Prince Andrew would be highly unlikely.
Things could get even more complicated because Princess Beatrice and Eugenie have remained on good terms with Prince Harry and Meghan, while relations between the latter two and William and Kate have definitely cooled.
It’s understood Prince Charles desires a “slimmed down” monarchy that would not include official royal roles for Beatrice and Eugenie, let alone their father.
It was recently revealed that Princess Beatrice attended her father’s “train wreck” BBC interview in 2019.
The BBC producer who secured the interview, Sam McAlister, said she was taken back that the Princess wanted to be there as her father was grilled.
“Imagine speaking about the things we had to talk about in that tiny room, face-to-face with her father who is accused of those heinous acts,” McAlister said.
“To be frank, the only thing worse than speaking to a prospective interviewee about allegations of sexual impropriety and sex with a 17-year-old girl is having to do so in front of his daughter,” she wrote in her book Scoops: Behind The Scenes Of The BBC’s Most Shocking Interviews.
“Princess Beatrice was polite and engaged, but, unlike her father, she was obviously anxious about the meeting and clearly there to protect his interests.”
