Prince Andrew may never return to public life after facing sex allegations, Prince Charles and Prince William fear.
As Prince Andrew faces civil charges in the US for rape in the first degree’, sexual battery and sexual abuse, senior royals believe it is the end of the game for Prince Andrew, according to British media reports.
“The prince loves his brother and has the ability to have sympathy for the slings and arrows that his brother endures, whatever the reasons may be. However, this will be unwelcome reputational damage to the institution. He has long ago concluded that it is probably an unsolvable problem,” a source told The Times.
A palace insider told the Daily Mail on August 11, “The family find themselves in an extraordinarily difficult and sensitive situation given the nature of the allegations.
“They are limited in what they can say publicly and now that the Duke of York is no longer a working royal, they are actually rather limited in what control they can exert over the situation privately,” the insider added.
According to the Daily Mail, “Prince Andrew is under no obligation to travel to America to defend himself against the allegations – which he has repeatedly denied – because courts can’t extradite citizens in civil cases. But legal experts say if he chooses not to take part in the case, he could still face a trial in the civil courts in his absence.”
