Private meeting between Andrew and the siblings upset him
King Charles is said to be dissatisfied: His siblings Prince Edward and Princess Anne met Prince Andrew and were photographed by paparazzi. Too much for Charles, who no longer wants to see Andrew in public.
The relationship between King Charles, 74, and Prince Andrew, 62, seems to be becoming increasingly difficult. While Queen Elizabeth, † 96, was still quite merciful to her middle son when he was faced with a civil lawsuit for sexual abuse due to his involvement in the Epstein scandal, Charles is taking tougher measures as the new king.
Prince Andrew should no longer be in public
Just days before the Queen’s death, the monarch is said to have made it clear to his younger brother at an “emotional and tense” meeting at his Birkhall estate in Scotland that he would never return to royal service. Charles literally “taken him by surprise” and is said to have “almost made him cry”.
Private meeting of his siblings angers King Charles
Yes, the new king is definitely taking a harder line and wants Andrew out of sight as much as possible. This also shows his supposedly new reaction to a meeting between his three siblings. Prince Edward, 58, and Princess Anne, 72, really only wanted to take care of their brother, so they decided to go shooting with him on November 12 – two days before Charles’ 74th birthday. This resulted in photos showing the three siblings on the way in their cars. So it was more a private pleasure than a public appearance, but that was apparently too much for King Charles, as reported by the “Daily Mail”.
“King Charles was said to have been upset that Edward and Anne had met Andrew publicly and wanted to make it clear that he was not involved in the shooting. Anne and Edward were privately concerned for Andrew and wanted to check on him. But Charles is felt he shouldn’t be in the public eye. His Majesty wasn’t thrilled at all,” says an insider.
If the insider’s claim is true, one wonders how far Charles’ dislike of his brother will go if he doesn’t even allow him a seemingly private meeting with his siblings.
