According to reports, King Charles III has ordered that Prince Andrew no longer have access to a residence and offices at Buckingham Palace.

After their mother, Queen Elizabeth II, passed away, the 62-year-old royal, who had already been relieved of his official duties in the wake of a scandal in 2019, was reportedly taken in by his older brother Charles. Andrew had previously been granted access to the palace but had not been allowed back inside since that time. The royal enclave has reportedly been closed to him as well, as per sources.

Prior to a few years ago, news of the Duke of York’s involvement with Jeffrey Epstein, a convicted sex offender, made headlines. Outside of court, the royal resolved a civil dispute as Andrew was charged with having intercourse with Virginia Giuffre, who was 17 at the time, in addition.

Despite his denial of misconduct, Andrew quit his official position in May 2020. In January 2022, Queen Elizabeth II revoked the honorary military memberships and royal charitable patronages of the former working royal.

The fact that Prince Andrew was kicked out of his apartment is noteworthy, but Entertainment Tonight noted that the prince hadn’t been residing there regularly for some time. Instead, he has been residing at the Royal Lodge at Windsor with his ex-wife, Sarah “Fergie” Ferguson. He still appears to have access to the property for the time being.

It was well known that Queen Elizabeth detested controversy and royal family drama. She had a soft place for Andrew, too, and royal insiders were startled by how close the two remained even after the British royal was embroiled in a sex scandal.

Soon after Elizabeth’s passing in September 2022, Katie Nicholl, the royal correspondent for Vanity Fair, spoke with Fox News Digital. “[The queen] saw Andrew very, very regularly right up until her death. They remained incredibly close, and she was very protective of him.”

Nicholl continued by describing how, while doing research for a book about the royals, she looked into the reports that Andrew was the queen’s “favorite son.”

Nicholl said, “She asked him about the Epstein allegations and about his relationship with Virginia Giuffre. They had a very honest conversation, and Andrew assured her that he was innocent of those allegations. She believed him. This was her son after all. And she didn’t just believe him. She stood by him.”
