The King evicts Prince Andrew from Buckingham Palace with the disgraced royal no longer allowed to use the building

The King is preventing the Duke of York from using Buckingham Palace following a series of scandals involving his former friendship with sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.

The Sun reports that Prince Andrew is no longer allowed to have an office in the building or use the palace’s address for correspondence.

Prior to stepping down from royal duties in late 2019, the Duke had a number of staff working for him in Buckingham Palace, including a private secretary and press officers.

Following on from his Newsnight interview which saw him quit public life, he has retained a skeleton number of staff at his office.

This will now close, with Prince Andrew facing the prospect of employing staff from his own finances.

A source told The Sun: “Any presence at the Palace is officially over.

“The King has made it clear. He isn’t a working royal. He’s on his own.”

Buckingham Palace declined to comment on the reports.

The Duke of York is currently living at Royal Lodge in Windsor, which he is likely to keep.
