Prince Andrew is unlikely to be forced out of his home by King Charles’ royal reshuffle amid questions around his future within the royal institution, a royal commentator has claimed.
As the late Queen’s second son, Andrew once held a prominent position within the royal set-up and is eighth in line to the throne.
However, the prince was stripped of his military titles and the use of HRH after a bizarre BBC Newsnight interview where he was challenged over an alleged friendship with convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.

The Duke of York subsequently reached a settlement with his accuser Virginia Giuffre and has consistently denied allegations of sexual abuse brought against him.
Now, royal expert Russell Myers has suggested Andrew’s alleged fears he and his ex-wife Sarah Ferguson might be moved on from their royal lodging in Windsor are misplaced.
“They won’t be getting kicked out,” he suggested. “There’s been a lot of discussion about where Andrew’s money will come from, how he will finance his lifestyle.”
The Sunday Times’ royal editor Roya Nikkah agreed, adding: “The Queen would have looked after him.”
Andrew and Fergie currently reside in a Grade II-listed mansion on the Windsor estate, which was leased to the prince following the Queen Mother’s death.
As a result, the prince reportedly remained close to the Queen before her death last month and attended her funeral with other Royal Family members – though he was not allowed to wear his military uniform as a non-working member of the family.

Despite his central role at the funeral, Andrew appears unlikely to return to public life amid Charles’ reported plans to slim down the monarchy, reducing the number of central working royals.
As well as slipping out of the view of public life, the exiled prince appears to have reignited his relationship with Fergie, who he divorced from in 1996.
After the Queen’s death, the pair have taken on the role of caring for the late monarch’s beloved corgis, with Fergie admitting it was a “big honour” to take on the duty.
