Prince Andrew flew into such a furious rage in a senior Palace assistant that Prince Charles had to ask him to apologize, The Mail can reveal on Sunday.
A source close to the Duke of York – who is being closely watched over his ties with pedophile billionaire Jeffrey Epstein – confirmed the outburst last night and admitted that Andrew was very angry.
The friend, however, rejected a suggestion from a well-placed royal insider that the duke had physically attacked the highly respected assistant and added: "There were heated words on both sides, but the altercation was in no way physical.
A source close to the Duke of York (depicted on Saturday in Bruges in his role as Colonel of the Grenadier Guards) – who keeps a close eye on his ties with pedophile billionaire Jeffrey Epstein – confirmed the outburst last night, admitting that Andrew had & # 39; became very angry & # 39;
"It was a verbal dispute. It was a work-related issue. The duke became very angry that what he wanted was not possible. & # 39;
Prince Charles then heard of the queue and asked his brother to say sorry.
The source added: "The Duke explained the situation to the Prince of Wales and left it at that. There was no apology because there was nothing to apologize for. The duke maintains a good relationship with the Prince of Wales. & # 39;
A source close to Charles said that such an intervention would not be unusual. "He is the second oldest member of the family and is known for taking action when and where needed.
"He is usually well informed and intervenes where appropriate."
Last night, both Buckingham Palace and Clarence House refused to respond to the incident that took place in recent weeks.
A friend of Andrew's ex-wife, the Duchess of York, added, "The Duke never attacked anyone."
Andrew – who seemed tense yesterday during a military ceremony in Belgium – spent weeks in scandals surrounding his friendship with Epstein, who committed suicide last month after an arrest of sex trafficking of underage girls

Buckingham Palace has issued strong denials of Virginia Roberts Giuffre's allegations that she was forced to have sex with Prince Andrew when she was 17 years old.
She claims to have had sex with Andrew three times, including one orgy in London, at Epstein's house and in a & # 39; orgy & # 39; on his private island in the Caribbean.
She spoke in court in New York last month and said that he & # 39; knows what he did & # 39; and added: & # 39; I hope he comes across as clean. & # 39;
Friends of the duke fear that the scandal will affect his royal duties and work with charities.
Andrew appeared rattling during his visit to Belgium to attend a ceremony on the occasion of the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Bruges
Planned official appointments with Northern Ireland were canceled last week and there are doubts about his involvement in a youth golf tournament in Portrush this week.
Andrew appeared yesterday during his visit to Belgium rattling to attend a ceremony on the occasion of the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Bruges. A TV news reporter asked if he would collaborate with lawyers in America through his ties with Epstein. Andrew ignored the shouted question.
This is not the first time the duke has to deal with rude and rude staff.
In 2016, he reportedly rammed his Range Rover through closed park gates close to his Royal Lodge house in Windsor to avoid a one-mile detour. Back then, a park employee said he & # 39; has a little reputation for roaring around like Toad or Toad Hall and he seems to think he can do what he likes & # 39 ;.
Six years ago he would be armed against armed royal protection officers at Buckingham Palace who mistook him for an intruder.

As the British trade ambassador – a role he had to give up in 2011 when his association with convicted pedophile Epstein emerged – the Prince was chased by criticism of his rude behavior.
It was even claimed that his nickname among the British diplomatic community in the Gulf was HBH, His Buffoon Highness.
A former diplomat claimed that the monicker came from Andrew & # 39; s "childish obsession" with the exact opposite of what was agreed in meetings prior to the visit.
Simon Wilson, deputy head of the British mission to Bahrain from 2001 to 2005, said the duke traveled with many demands – including the instruction that drinking water should be served at room temperature.
