The royal family decides that Prince Andrew has no way back


Prince Andrew is a "busted flush": the royal family decides there is no way back for Duke and he will never return to public duties six months after the car accident interview with Epstein

  • The royal family has no plans to review Prince Andrew's retirement from public life
  • At the end of last year, he resigned from his duties "for the foreseeable future"
  • This was followed by his Newsnight car accident interview with Emily Maitlis in November
  • Duke has since been exposed to more controversy that referred to him as the "busted flush".

The royal family has "no plans to review Prince Andrew's retirement after a series of controversies," sources said.

The afflicted king resigned from his duties "for the foreseeable future" after his car accident interview with Emily Maitlis last year.

Since then, the Duke of York has experienced a number of controversies that have led him to brand him as a "busted flush" with a "toxic" presence, the Sunday Times reported.

In the November interview, he tried to improve the record by talking about allegations that he had sex with 17-year-old Virginia Roberts three times, which he strictly denied.

But he was widely convicted of not showing remorse for his friendship with the convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.

The interview sparked days of catastrophic headlines and prompted a number of companies and charities to leave him.

In March, the Duke of York commissioned PR expert Mark Gallagher with the nickname "Backroom Fixer" to deal with the aftermath of the scandal.

Mr. Gallagher previously helped to relieve VIPs who were wrongly accused of pedophilia in 2014 by fantasist Carl Beech.

The prince faced further controversy earlier this month after £ 355,297 paid to his private secretary was classified as an "unauthorized trust service".

The Duke of York's longtime private secretary Amanda Thirsk, who resigned shortly after the catastrophic BBC Newsnight interview last year, received the money as payment for her work as a trustee of the Prince Andrew Charitable Trust (PACT).

The Queen's third son is currently in a dispute over a £ 6m debt with her ex-wife Sarah Ferguson for their £ 18m ski chalet in Verbier, Switzerland.

It was reported today that the queen should pay the debt after a French celebrity threatened to take the case to court.

Her Majesty will end the feud between the Duke and Duchess of York and Isabelle de Rouvre, who sold them the Swiss luxury chalet in 2014 for £ 18m.

The socialist is now pursuing her in court after claiming that she hadn't paid the remaining £ 6.7m for Chalet Helora.

An insider told Air Mail that the Queen would pay the debt itself to prevent Prince Andrew from being dragged through the courts.

Buckingham Palace declined to comment.
