Prince Andrew ‘furious’ as King Charles may ban him from ceremonial robes: report
Prince Andrew is reportedly “furious” that his brother King Charles could prevent him from wearing a robe for the coronation.
The disgraced royal, who was famously stripped of his royal and military honors by his late mother, Queen Elizabeth II, wore a set of velvet robes marking his status as a Knight of the Garter on May 6. can be banned.
A resource told the Mirror that the Duke of York was “left completely in the dark” on the dress code for the upcoming celebration, while other members of the royal family have already been told the specifics.
“Andrew is furious. He is already not playing a role and now he feels that he is being disrespected and asked for something that he fully deserves. [wear]” added the insider.
The King’s coronation will reportedly be a “collar day” – meaning members of the Order of the Garter will dress to reflect their respective knighthoods.
But for Andrew, a lounge suite could potentially be on the cards, the outlet added.
The Post has approached Buckingham Palace for comment.
Confusion over Andrew’s coronation outfit came after he stepped back from royal duties following a sexual assault case filed by Virginia Guiffre.
Giffre has long claimed that Epstein asked her to have “disgusting” sex with Shahi three times, starting in 2001 when she was just 17 years old.
Andrew’s lawyers said he “categorically denies Giffre’s false allegations against him.” He settled the case out of court last February for an undisclosed amount.
This is not the first time that a scandal-plagued royal has faced suspicion over traditional attire.
During last June’s Garter Day procession in Windsor, Andrew’s mother banned him from wearing his ceremonial robes after he stopped using his HRH (“His Royal Highness”) moniker.
While he is still a Royal Knight of the Garter and a Knight Grand Cross of the Royal Victorian Order, he was told face-to-face by his mother that he would no longer be known as Her Royal Highness following her association with pedophile Jeffrey Epstein. .
The monarch, who was 96 when she died in September, broke the news to the father-of-two at Windsor Castle in January last year.
In the same month, he also stripped him of his military titles.
