More than a year after losing his royal and military titles, Prince Andrew will be welcomed back to the royal family by none other than his older brother, a source close to the monarch has said The daily beast. King Charles III invited his disgraced brother to stay at Scotland’s Balmoral Castle, where Andrew was spotted carpooling with Prince William and Kate Middleton on Sunday.
“Andrew will never play the same ceremonial role within the family, he is no longer a working king and never will be. That’s clear,” said the source, described as a friend of the king. “But he’s part of the family. He is the king’s brother. He has not been found guilty of any crime and I think it’s fair to say that the King is making it clear that he will not turn his back on his brother.” The latest revelation is particularly shocking considering that Charles previously played a large part in excluding his brother from the King’s inner circle.In the final months of the late Queen Elizabeth’s reign, Andrew was banned from performing royal duties after establishing his close friendship with Jeffrey Epstein in a infamous BBC interview. Ultimately it was him stripped of its royal patronage in a sex abuse lawsuit filed by Virginia Giuffre, a victim of Epstein’s sex trafficking ring.
As for Andrew’s recent sighting with the Prince and Princess of Wales, a British biographer Andrew Lownie told The Daily Beast that the royal family used the pair “to get it.” [the royals] They’ve gotten out of a tight spot a lot lately, and once again, here they are doing the heavy lifting, solving problems they didn’t create.
Lownie continued: “So far the family have tried to distance themselves from Andrew but Ballet on Sunday suggests there has been a change of strategy. The question is why? Andrew is still very toxic… So why did you seem to do that? decided that they need to show him some kind of support and that they are all in this thing?”
