As Prince Andrew prepares for yet another "royal comeback," it has been reported that working royal Prince Edward "will not fight" his older brother when it comes to leading the Crown. But one royal expert feels that both Edward and his wife, Sophie, Duchess of Edinburgh, "don't need to fight" the Jeffrey Epstein-connected Duke, since they are "both loved" by the public.

Prince Edward 'won't fight' Prince Andrew when it comes to leading the royal family.

"I don't think that Edward and Sophie need to fight, because they're very welcome and everybody likes them," royal author Angela Levin dished. "They do their jobs quietly. They haven't wanted to be in the middle of attention, so I don't think they want to fight Andrew. The difficulty is, is what on earth was Andrew doing, leading the royals and grinning from ear to ear with a very practiced army march, swinging his arms and walking, you know, very much as if he was back in the navy or the army."

After referencing Andrew's "grinning" lead of the royal procession to King Constantine's recent memorial service, Levin continued: "You don't see King Charles going first. It was very, very foolish of the aids not to recognize that that would make people angry, seeing Andrew go first."

There is currently a 'lack of senior working royals' in the British monarchy.

In addition to the King and Queen Camilla, the other senior working royals of the monarchy are: Prince William and Kate, Princess of Wales, Princess Anne, and Edward and Sophie.

In praise of the late Queen Elizabeth II's youngest child, Levin added: "Edward has been going around the world doing a lot of things that he likes, which [are] acting and seeing performances and helping people. I think the change came a couple of years ago when the Queen was very ill, but I don't think that there's anything nasty going on, in that they don't mind King Charles being out of the way while they do things."

She further observed: "I think they'd be very supportive of him, and they've been very supportive of the late Queen, and I don't think that they're a nasty couple by any means."

Levin also highlighted how the Duchess of Edinburgh was rumored to always be Elizabeth II's "favorite daughter-in-law."

"I mean, the Queen used to say that what she loved about Sophie was you didn't even know she was there, and she really liked that because she just got on with things, and I think that's what they that's what they do. But if you watch them on some of their engagements, they're roaring with laughter again. They're enjoying it; it's not a resentfulness there at all," the author concluded.

As of March 2024, Prince Andrew is not a working royal and is not allowed to use his "HRH" in public.
