Charles is “displeased” that Prince Andrew showed up (and things are super tense with Edward over the title drama). King Charles is apparently upset over a family reunion that occurred last weekend, and the cause has nothing to do with leaky pens.
According to a recent Daily Mail claim, Charles’ siblings Princess Anne and Prince Edward convened at Windsor for a shooting party just a few days before Charles’ 74th birthday. And supposedly disgraced royal Prince Andrew was also present, which Charles did not like. According to the Daily Mail, King Charles has opted not to attend the shoot and is upset that Andrew was invited.
“King Charles was said to be displeased that Edward and Anne had been publicly meeting up with Andrew and wanted it made clear that he had not been part of the shoot. Anne and Edward had been privately concerned about Andrew and wanted to check on him. But Charles’s view is that he should not be in the public eye. His Majesty was not thrilled at all.”
According to the outlet, Andrew will spend Christmas with his family at Sandringham but will be unable to attend the royals’ customary stroll on Christmas Day. Meanwhile, it appears that relations between King Charles and Prince Edward are strained.
Mostly because Edward was supposed to inherit the Duke of Edinburgh title after his father died, but he still doesn’t have it, which a source close to the royal family “icily” stated “hasn’t gone unnoticed.” It’s unclear why Charles hasn’t given his younger brother the title, but it seems like the holidays in Sandringham will be tense this year.
