Prince Andrew: Expert on chances of return to public life

Prince Andrew is the “only person in the world” that is “clinging on” to a return to public life with the royal family, an expert has said.

Andrew, 61, is facing a sex abuse lawsuit in the United States and stepped back from public life after a disastrous interview on the BBC’s Newsnight nearly two years ago.

It was reported yesterday in the Sunday Times that his siblings Prince Charles, Princess Anne and Prince Edward ruled in a meeting earlier this year that Andrew faces no way back to public life.

Meanwhile, a source also said that Prince William has been “annoyed” with this uncle’s attitude since the scandal has emerged, saying it’s what “really gets” to him.

The source said: “Any suggestion there isn’t gratitude for the institution, anything that could lead the public to think that senior members of the family aren’t grateful for their position, (William thinks) is really dangerous.”

And speaking on ITV’s Lorraine, the Mirror’s royal editor Russell Myers said: “I think he [Andrew] is the only person in the entire world at the moment who is clinging to the aspect that he could return.

“But Prince William will obviously be taking over one day, I think we’ve seen him really come to the fore in his new role of being a trusted lieutenant of the Queen and Charles as well.

“What really gets him, was what a source said is Andrew’s sense of entitlement and the way he has handled himself throughout this whole saga.

“It does seem like they are closing ranks on him and he is becoming quite isolated.”

His comments come as Virginia Giuffre is suing the prince in New York for allegedly sexually assaulting her when she was a teenager.

She claims she was trafficked by Jeffrey Epstein, the duke’s former friend, to have sex with Andrew when she was aged 17 and a minor under US law.

Andrew has strenuously denied all the allegations.
