As Andrew's reputation declines, sources close to Prince William revealed he's worried about his father's decision-making skills.

“Of course. Everyone knows there is a s---load more stuff that could come out on Andrew. That’s why William was so dismayed by the leniency shown to him at Christmas. He is utterly bemused by his father’s strategy," William's friend told an outlet.

Despite William's rumored thoughts, he is aware of the structure of his family.

“That’s not how the family dynamic works," the insider disclosed. "Charles is the king, so William has to go along with it. But he doesn’t have to like it.”

“William and his father agreed, in 2022, that Andrew should be kicked out of the royal family. Having ripped off the plaster, you have to question his judgment in walking to church with Andrew at Christmas, especially when they knew the Epstein affair was all going to be raked up again a few days later," a former courtier said.
