The Queen’s second son recently became a grandfather for the first time when Princess Eugenie welcomed son August Brooksbank in February.

Soon he will welcome his second grandchild as Princess Beatrice is expecting.

His grooms could be seen riding by his side and seemed to share in the joke with the royal as well.

Andrew’s outing comes weeks after his eldest daughter Princess Beatrice announced on July 17 last year that she is expecting a baby with her Italian property developer husband Edo.

The reports come as royal experts predicted that the Duke of York was “trying to rehabilitate himself” and return to the royal fold – despite his brother Prince Charles pushing plans for a slimmed-down monarchy.

Royal pundit Richard Fitzwilliams told MailOnline that Andrew “would obviously like to be rehabilitated,” but first needs to answer FBI questions about his ties to Jeffrey Epstein.

Prince Andrew stepped down from royal duties in November 2019 after a disastrous Newsnight interview criticizing his friendship with convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.

His latest appearance, however, comes after it was suggested that Prince Charles is planning to downsize the monarchy in the wake of his father’s death and after Prince Harry and Meghan Markle decided to trade royal life for LA.

Last month, the Duke of York sat next to the Queen at his father’s funeral before setting off in his new £220,000 Bentley.

On April 11, he also spoke to television cameras outside the Royal Chapel of All Saints at the Royal Lodge in Windsor, two days after his father’s death.

That appearance, where he paid tribute to the Duke of Edinburgh, marked the first time he had addressed cameras directly since his car accident interview about his friendship with Epstein.
