Queen Elizabeth is reportedly ‘irritated’ by Prince Charles’ continued disapproval of her disgraced younger brother Prince Andrew, reported USA Weekly.
Prince Andrew raised eyebrows after he was featured prominently at his late father Prince Philip’s memorial on March 29. Shortly after, the news that he was preparing to attend the Epsom Derby with the queen also began to circulate.
In the midst of this, a fountain poured into US Weekly that Prince Charles was vehemently against Andrew appearing at Philip’s memorial, let alone playing a key role in it.
According to the source: “Queen Elizabeth is irritated with Prince Charles for giving his opinion where they don’t want it.”
“She doesn’t need him to direct her on how to handle the scandal,” the source added.
The comment comes after it was reported that it was the Queen’s decision to allow Andrew, known as her favorite son, to accompany her to the memorial.
Prince Andrew continues to draw public ire after he was accused of engaging in sexual activity with a minor. The woman, named Virginia Giuffre in her lawsuit, accused the Duke of York of sexually assaulting her in the early 2000s.
Andrew settled the case out of court in early March 2022.
