Andrew won’t be able to edge back into The Firm under Charles, claims expert


DISGRACED Prince Andrew has no chance of clawing his way back into the senior royal fold when Charles becomes King, an expert says.

The disgraced royal, 62, appears in a list of appointments to Her Maj in an official Ministry of Defence document published weeks after he settled an alleged sex assault case.

The Duke, who is no longer allowed to use his HRH title in any official capacity, always denied wrongdoing and the settlement accepted no liability in the matter.

But a royal expert has dismissed the possibility of Andrew being able to claw his way back under Charles‘ reign after daughters Eugenie & Beatrice recently stepped up.

Jonathan Sacerdoti told Express.co.uk: “I can’t see any way that the Royal Family would try to push Prince Andrew, front and centre again anytime soon.

“I think that corresponds with an era when we’re seeing the Royal Family slim down anyway, in terms of who’s put out there to do a lot of public work.

“I think that the Queen has divided more of her role to the next generations in order to alleviate the burden on her at her old age, and that is entirely reasonable.”

The expert also said this move would align with Charles’ reported view to slim down the Monarchy.

  • Kate ‘mirrors’ daughter Charlotte in Commonwealth Games snaps, claims expert

    A body language expert has claimed that Kate Middleton at times “mirrored” her daughter while they were together at the Commonwealth Games.

    Body language pro Judi James had this to say: “Kate is known for her smile and laughter in public, but these poses show her looking a lot more spontaneous.

    “At one point she sits open-mouthed in what looks like playful shock or indignation.

    “Kate appears to be taking her lead from Charlotte and mirroring her slightly, which clearly shows they are sharing the fun and losing themselves in the moment.

    “Charlotte’s dramatic facial expressions that include sticking out her tongue, widening her eyes and looking totally engrossed show an immersion that could only come from a lack of shyness and self-awareness.

    “It is so good to see Kate following suit, even in a more subtle way.”

  • Prince Andrew’s chances of making a comeback to royal life are slim

    A royal expert has claimed that Prince Andrew has a very low chance of making his way back into the public eye as a working royal.

    Following the Epstein sex scandal, Prince Andrew has been pushed out of his royal duties.

    Despite this, the Queen has involved him (albeit very minimally) in certain events, such as Prince Philips funeral.

    However, a royal commentator has said that under Prince Charles, Andrew’s older brother, he has no chance of making a comeback.

    Jonathan Sacerdoti told the Express: “I can’t see any way that the royal family would try to push Prince Andrew, front and centre again any time soon.”

    He continued: “In due course when Prince Charles is the Monarch I think we will see even more steps to slim down the working royal family.

    “Part of the reason for that will be to avoid any controversies about individuals or to avoid putting anyone out there who feel they might not command the same level of respect that the Monarch themselves commands.”

  • Charlotte is using the Queen as a ‘body language role model’, expert claims

    The young royal clearly looks up to Her Majesty, according to body language pro Judi James.

    Charlotte was spotted out with her parents at the Commonwealth Games this week.

    Discussing the moment Charlotte shook the hand of Dominica swimmer Warren Lawrence, Judi said: “We’ve seen her shaking hands in a very royal meet and greet ritual before, but she has often needed a little nudging to do so.

    “Here though she looks quite keen to shake hands and is actually enjoying the process.

    “Her arm is held up at a very assured angle and she uses eye contact and an eye smile as she performs a pretty convincing ‘social’ mouth smile.

    “The angle of her hand and her facial expression are so similar to the Queen’s there is a hint she might have been using ‘Gan Gan’ as her body language role model.”
