Prince Andrew has no way of returning to royal life after scandal

Prince Andrew will apparently never return to his former royal role, as it has been suggested that the Royal Family ‘will never let this happen’ following recent allegations.


Prince Andrew will apparently never return to any form of royal role after stepping down from his former duties for the foreseeable future in November 2019 following the Jeffrey Epstein scandal. As one of the Queen’s children, the Duke of York was once important in royal life and was the patron of a number of charities and organizations and regularly carried out his own royal engagements while supporting the queen.

In recent months, however, Prince Andrew has rarely been seen in public, although he was spotted this summer visiting the Queen at Balmoral during her annual summer vacation. It came as reports revealed Virginia Guiffre had made allegations about her in federal court in New York.

Since then, speculation about a possible trial of Prince Andrew has increased, although the royal strongly denies all the allegations and nothing has yet been confirmed. Despite this, it is now claimed that there is “no way in the world” that Prince Andrew will be allowed to return to royal life in light of the recent scandals.

According to The Mirror, an insider suggested that Prince Andrew’s siblings Prince Charles, Princess Anne and Prince Edward agreed at a meeting last January that there was “no turning back “for their brother. The source claimed: “Nine months ago Charles, Anne and Edward had a meeting, a summit and agreed there was no way for him to come back.”

And it seems that this opinion has held all these months after the trial of Virginia Giuffre filed in New York. The Sunday Times reports that a source close to Prince Charles said that although the prince “loves his brother”, the scandal is “causing undesirable damage to the reputation of the institution”.

They added that this would have convinced the Prince of Wales that “a return for the Duke is clearly not possible, as the specter of it lifts its head with hideous regularity”.

“There is no way he will ever return, the family will never let him happen,” a royal source told the publication.

While Prince Charles’ eldest son Prince William would agree, having previously attended so-called crisis talks with his father and grandmother over Andrew’s decision to leave public life.

The Sunday Times reports that a source close to the Duke of Cambridge has suggested that what “really attracts him” is his uncle’s “gracious and ungrateful attitude” to his royal position, which they allege whom Prince William considers a “threat to the family”. .

The reports come just weeks after Prince Andrew appeared in the new documentary about Prince Philip alongside his siblings and many of the Queen’s grandchildren as they shared memories of the late Duke of Edinburgh and celebrated its extraordinary heritage. After the documentary aired, however, many royal fans criticized the BBC for Prince Andrew’s involvement amid the ongoing scandal.

As speculation about the allegations continues, it seems unlikely that Prince Andrew will ever return to his old role.
