Prince Andrew to Step Down From Public Duties for the ‘Foreseeable Future’

Prince Andrew to Step Down From Public Duties for the ‘Foreseeable Future’.

On Nov.

20, British royal family member Prince Andrew announced his decision to step down from public duties.

.

Andrew, who has been widely criticized for his past relationship with Jeffrey Epstein, said it has caused a “major disruption” to his work.

.

It has become clear to me over the last few days that the circumstances relating to my former association with Jeffrey Epstein has become a major disruption to my family’s work and the valuable work going on in the many organizations and charities that I am proud to support, Prince Andrew, via CNN.

However, reports in the U.K. tell a different story, with an unnamed source saying Andrew was actually “banned” from royal duties by his mother, Queen Elizabeth II.

It was a devastating moment for both of them.

His reputation is in tatters … It is unlikely he will ever perform royal duties again.

He is disgraced, Source, to ‘The Sun’.

It is reported that Prince Andrew will now only appear at major events involving the royal family, such as during the annual Trooping of the Color.

.

This is not about personalities but about safeguarding the future of the institution of the monarchy itself … It is very sad.

Obviously, both the Queen and [Prince Charles] love Andrew … but the health of the monarchy is too important to risk, Source, to ‘The Sun’
