Prince Andrew ‘meeting with the Queen every day to repair his reputation’ ahead of Platinum Jubilee

Prince Andrew meets with the Queen every day as he desperately tries to restore his reputation with the public and his mother before his Platinum Jubilee.

The Duke of York, who earlier this year agreed to pay a large sum to settle the sexual abuse scandal case before it went to a jury, pays daily visits to the monarch at Windsor Castle.

According to royal insiders, he is allegedly driving the five miles from the Royal Lodge home for pre-lunch visits to ensure the Queen is “comfortable and cared for”.

Andrew, who was joined by two companions for a morning horseback ride in Windsor Great Park this morning, was stripped of all his honorary military titles and HRH designation in January in light of the civil sexual abuse case with Virginia Giuffre.

Ms Giuffre claims she was forced to have sex with the Duke three times when she was 17 under Epstein’s orders. Andrew has repeatedly denied the allegation.

A royal source told the Mirror: ‘Andrew is doing everything he can to make amends for the shame he brought to his family by being involved in such a scandal.

He wants to make it up to the queen, so he’s doing his best to see her as much as possible.

“The rest of the family apart from His Majesty are united in the sentiment that he should stay out of the spotlight and keep quiet after having left such a big stain on the family.”

Andrew drove to and from the trip in a Range Rover.  Like most of the royal family, he is known to be a great horseman.

The news comes after it emerged that Andrew, 62, will take part in the ceremony at Windsor Castle on June 13 along with other royals in what is one of the biggest ceremonies on the royal calendar.

His name will also appear in the following day’s Court Circular and he will attend Garter Day ceremonies as a Royal Knight.

Almost 700 years later, the Order is the oldest and highest ranking Order of Chivalry in Britain. Knights, now both men and women, used to be limited to the aristocracy, but today they are chosen from a variety of backgrounds, in recognition of their public service.

The iconic annual Garter Day procession, where the Queen and Knights parade in grand velvet robes, glittering regalia and plumed hats, is one of the most traditional ceremonies in the Queen’s calendar.

The Queen is sovereign of the Order and appoints the Knights of the Garter without input from ministers, meaning that Prince Andrew’s appointment was considered private.

There are now fears that Andrew’s attendance at the League Day celebrations could overshadow the event, especially after it was said that he agreed to withdraw from public life following the conclusion of the case.

Andrew was stripped of all his honorary military degrees and HRH designation in January in light of the civil sexual assault case with Virginia Giuffre, an Epstein victim who claimed Andrew sexually assaulted her when she was just 17 years old.

The Queen can appoint members of the Order of the Garter without any approval from ministers and recognizes those who have performed a great service to the public.

Prince Charles, left, is an automatic member of the Order, while Prince William, right, is a Royal Knight, which is an 'extra' title under the order that is reserved for members of the Family Real and does not count towards the limit.

The Order of the Garter is a 700-year tradition that recognizes great public service. Membership is limited to a maximum of 24 and is generally Lords and Ladies with The Queen, who left in 2018, appointing members as you see fit.
