In November 2019, the Duke of York stepped back as a working member of The Royal Family in the hope that such a move would keep him out of the spotlight. Yet more than two years later, Andrew still finds himself in a centre of a media storm, with Sunday’s newspapers promising to be unhappy reading for the 61-year-old.
The Sunday Times claims on their front page that Andrew may be required to stop using his Duke of York title should he lose his lawsuit in New York brought on by Jeffrey Epstein victim, Virginia Giuffre.
The paper reports that Andrew would be forced into “internal exile” should he lose, and would be forced to cut all links to his charities.
Prince Andrew has always strenuously denied accusations made by Giuffre.
Meanwhile, the Sunday Mirror’s front page splash features an interview with Giuffre’s ex-partner who supports the allegations made against the Duke.
The Sunday People’s headline reads ‘Andrew Must Go’ with the paper saying that military chiefs want to end their association with The Queen’s son for good.
There is no cheer for Andrew in the Daily Express either, with a lawyer telling the publication that the Duke must be quizzed by the Metropolitan Police.
The ongoing lawsuit in New York threatens to overshadow what is supposed to be a special year for The Queen and nation.
Platinum Jubilee plans are being finalised, with Prince Andrew unlikely to join The Royal Family at any of the public celebrations.
