Andrew, does the Army want him representing them?

From behind the Times paywall. This man is deluded, arrogant, and a hunt. I have the greatest of sympathy for Her Majesty having this for a son, she does not deserve this in her latter years in particularly in view of her service to the country and the armed forces.

The Duke of York has asked the Queen to reinstate him as colonel of the Grenadier Guards as part of a plan towards returning to public life, it was reported yesterday.

Prince Andrew is also believed to have asked that his daughters, Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie, be made working royals.

Today, as a member of the Order of the Garter, the duke is expected to attend the Garter Day service at Windsor Castle. A source told The Sunday Telegraph: “The colonelcy of the Grenadier Guards was his most coveted title and he wants it back. Having remained a counsellor of state, he also believes he should be included at royal and state events.

“Most importantly for him is his status as an HRH and ‘prince of the blood’ and he feels that should be reinstated and his position recognised and respected.”


Andrew’s appearance in full regalia at the ceremony for the Order of the Garter, Britain’s oldest and most senior order of chivalry, will be his first official outing since the Duke of Edinburgh’s memorial service in March when he accompanied the Queen to Westminster Abbey.

His spokesman declined to comment.
A senior palace source told The Sunday Times: “Clearly at some point soon, thought will have to be given to how to support the duke as, away from the public gaze, he seeks to slowly rebuild his life in a different direction. There is of course a real awareness and sensitivity to public feelings. There is also recognition that the task of starting to support him as he begins to rebuild his life will be the first step on a long road and one that should not be played out every day in the glare of the public spotlight.”
Suggestions that Andrew, 62, could move to Scotland are understood to be wide of the mark. In January his military titles and royal patronages were returned to the Queen and it was announced that he would stop using the style His Royal Highness in an official capacity. In February he paid about £12 million to settle a civil case in the US with Virginia Giuffre, 38, who accused him of sexual abuse. He has always denied any wrongdoing.

Been told in very clear terms to crawl back under his rock and stay there.

But no, keeps trying to emerge and gets all upset to find himself about as welcome as a turd in a swimming pool.
