"When it comes to any public role for his brother, there is no way back," a royal insider spilled. "There has always been an agreement that Andrew would be permitted to attend private and family events, as is his right. But not public or official ones. That has not changed."
The move comes amid the documents showing that an Epstein s-- slave, Jane Doe 3, stated that she was forced to engage in sexual activity with the Duke of York. The files shared that the young girl was "forced to have sexual relations with this prince when she was a minor in three separate geographical locations."
Jane Doe 3 further revealed that the incidents occurred "in London — at Ghislaine Maxwell's apartment —, in New York, and on Epstein's private island in the U.S. Virgin Islands (in an orgy with numerous other under-aged girls)." The papers share how Epstein, who died in prison in August 2019, personally instructed the girl to "give the prince whatever he demanded," while Ghislaine Maxwell, who is currently serving a 20-year prison sentence for her crimes, "facilitated Prince Andrew's acts of sexual abuse by acting as a 'madame' for Epstein."
In response to reports submitted against Andrew due to the new allegations, the Metropolitan Police stated: "We are aware of the release of court documents in relation to Jeffrey Epstein. As with any matter, should new and relevant information be brought to our attention, we will assess it. No investigation has been launched."
Concerning the need for Andrew to fully disappear from the public and out of the opulent royal estate, a source told an outlet, "When it comes to family, it is difficult. But this association is just never going to go away. And that means he [Andrew] has to."
As The Royal Observer previously reported, efforts to throw the eighth in line to the throne out of his home of 21 years had somewhat cooled off during the autumn of 2023. "It’s not really true to say the King is trying to kick him out," a royal insider told an outlet in October of that year.
They continued: "He will have outsourced it to his team. He will be setting them the challenge of rationalizing the properties. That will have been the brief that will have gone out to his team. The King is pretty pragmatic. He knows his brother has got to have somewhere to live, and he loves his brother, so he was never going to chuck him out on his ear."
Andrew will likely now need to accept the fact that he is headed for the much smaller Frogmore Cottage.
