Officially, a disgraced member of the British royal family is no longer welcome at Buckingham Palace.
According to The Sun, King Charles has notified Prince Andrew that he is to resign his official office at the royal home.
An source stated of the development, “Any presence at the Palace is officially over.”
Andrew will be prohibited from using the London castle as his official address.
“The King has made it clear. He isn’t a working royal. He’s on his own,” stated the insider.
After retiring from his royal duties in 2021, the Duke of York maintained a formal presence at the palace with Elizabeth II’s approval.
Andrew’s fall from favor with the royal family was a result of his friendship with the dead sexual offender Jeffrey Epstein.
This year, Andrew settled a lawsuit with an Epstein victim who claimed the prince sexually molested her.
Virginia Giuffre said that Andrew repeatedly raped her as a youngster between 2000 and 2002, including on Epstein’s notorious “Pedophile Island.”
In his settlement with Giuffre, the disgraced prince did not acknowledge to any wrongdoing. According to people acquainted with the dispute, Andrew paid Giuffre an estimated $12 million.
The Sun reports that Andrew will have a house on the royal grounds in Windsor.
After succeeding to the throne earlier this year, Charles denied Andrew’s requests to resume his royal duties.
