The late Queen Elizabeth II took extra measures to ensure a "weak" Prince Andrew was kept close to the royal family and not exiled from them.

"Andrew was the weak one. She was always protecting him and all that certainly took its toll on her health at the end," a family friend of the royals spilled.

King Charles III is also 'standing by' scandal-laden Prince Andrew.

Sources claim this was both because the late monarch always had a "soft spot" for her rumored favorite child, and she felt that he could do less damage within the inner sanctum as opposed to being totally on his own in the world.

There are some basic things that you can do if you're a posh royal living in the country, and actually, he's been socially outcast from even some of those," royal journalist Charlotte Griffiths shared.

So he certainly can't do any charity work or any royal work of any kind. Especially now in the light of this second batch of documents. All of his friends have been asking, and they are big worriers that he can't even really go shooting or anything like that," she added.

The royal disgrace has been "locked in his room," and this follows a slew of royal analysts who have all largely agreed in the past week that King Charles III needs to intervene about his brother.

"The King is in a difficult position in so much as I think he made a mistake at Sandringham," former royal journalist Charles Rae told an outlet.

"That wasn’t an official royal outing; it was a family outing," Rae added when discussing the annual royal family walk to and from St Mary Magdalene Church to Sandringham House on Christmas. "He should have told Andrew not to turn up. I think he may well regret that decision. The King has tried to kick him out of the royal residences before."

Rae then added, "Andrew is a very arrogant man, and he loves to keep his royal trappings. He has got nothing left apart from riding his horse. The King is going to have to sit down and have a review of Andrew’s future in terms of the royal family. He won’t be kicked out, but he will certainly be curtailed in many ways."

Some of the papers showed that an Epstein s-- slave, Jane Doe 3, stated that she was forced to engage in sexual activity with the Duke of York. The papers shared that the underage girl was "forced to have sexual relations with this prince when she was a minor in three separate geographical locations."

The revelations have now pushed the ongoing "Andrew situation" the monarchy has faced for over four years into the "nuclear" territory when it comes to public perception. In what is being labeled a "royal disgrace for the ages" there are also fresh calls from anti-Crown activists for the King himself to publicly address the dire new evidence.
