 Prince William Pushes King Charles to Take Action Against Prince Andrew, Says Royal Commentator

Prince William is reportedly instrumental in King Charles’ decision to expel Prince Andrew from the Royal Lodge, fuelled by a long-standing grudge. Writing for the Daily MailRoyal commentator Richard Kay suggested the Prince of Wales influenced the 75-year-old monarch to take a tough stance against his disgraced brother.

William has been at odds with Andrew, in particular over Andrew’s unwelcoming attitude towards Kate Middleton during the early days of their relationship. The Duke of York lost his royal status and military titles after a disastrous interview with BBC Newsnight, which highlighted his association with convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.

“The differences between the monarch and the heir persist, especially regarding the Prince Andrew scandal,” Richard wrote in his article for the media“William has long held a grudge against Andrew for not being welcoming when he first introduced the then Kate Middleton to the Royal Family and feels his father has been too soft on him. “It has led to speculation that it is William who is putting pressure on his father to evict the Duke of York from Royal Lodge, so that the Waleses can move in,” he explained.

It has been alleged that Prince William, as heir to the throne, has been a voice of reason in urging Prince Andrew to be removed from his office at Buckingham Palace and kept out of official royal duties. “William has been very clear about the need to distance the royal family from Andrew’s scandals,” a source close to the royal family said.

King Charles has now demanded that his younger brother leave Royal Lodge, a 30-room mansion, to move to a more modest residence at Frogmore Cottage, previously occupied by Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. However, Andrew is reluctant to give up the lavish property, citing a 75-year lease signed in his name following the death of Queen Elizabeth II.

“Andrew believes the lease entitles him to stay at Royal Lodge, but the King and William insist.” The source added. “This is more than a residence; it is about the image and integrity of the monarchy.”

The decision to move Andrew has not been without its challenges. The Duke of York has reportedly resisted the move, creating tension within the family. “There is a sense of betrayal on Andrew’s part, but the royal family is prioritising their public image,” the source explained.

William’s influence in this matter underscores his growing role within the royal family and his commitment to upholding its values. His insistence on removing Andrew from senior royal properties and duties reflects his dedication to restoring the reputation of the monarchy.
