Will King Charles allow Prince Andrew to test his title of Royal Highness again?
There is speculation that King Charles III could allow his brother Prince Andrew to test his title of royal highness again amid Harry’s damaging stunts against the royal family.
The Duke of York, who lost that privilege after his alleged links to convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, wants to be called by his HRH title again, according to a new report.
Queen Elizabeth II stripped her favorite son Andrew of his royal titles, military affiliations and sponsorships in his life because of the scandal and ordered the disgraced royal not to use his HRH status.
Now Princess Beatrice and Eugenie’s father is reportedly seeking the king’s consent to use that status as a test again. His plan is to use it in a “quiet” way, whatever that means. However, this will only happen if King Charles III offers his consent.
Andrew is well aware that he will never return to royal duties and that he will never regain the patronages that his mother took away from him. But the latest Daily Mail report details how perplexed Prince Andrew is at not being able to use his HRH status.
There has been no confirmation or indication that this will happen, but the Duke of York will certainly try.
However, some royal experts believe King Charles will not allow Prince Andrew to use the title as he knows the decision could cause greater damage to the monarch and the royal family amid persistent attacks by Harry and Meghan on the company.
