Long considered the good pupil of the royal family, the prince william now makes its voice heard, like it or not! A central figure in the Jubilee ceremonies, where he notably paraded on horseback in the company of his father, Prince Charles, the heir to the throne no longer hesitates to oppose his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II.
And especially when it concerns Prince Andrew of York, his uncle, entangled in the case of pedophilia of Jeffrey Epstein. Implicated by the main complainant, the son of the Queen of England had to pay a heavy sum to avoid a media trial. An unsatisfactory conclusion for the husband of Kate Middleton, who now refuses that he participates in any public family outing.
This Monday, June 13, in particular, when they were all gathered for a ceremony in tribute to the Military Order of the Garter. Announced in recent weeks, the Duke of York was expected in the company of his brothers and sisters, Prince Charles, Princess Anne and Prince Edward. But it was without counting on Prince William, who would have threatened his grandmother not to come if he were to meet his uncle there. According to DailyMailit would have been very clear: “It’s him or me!“he would have struck at his grandmother, supported by his father.
The queen therefore gave in to the argument of her grandson who refuses that the royal family be steeped in this kind of story. Present in Windsor, the Duke of York therefore did not appear with the others at the chapel of Saint-Georges. Dressed in traditional costume, the Duke of Cambridge was there, accompanied among others by Kate Middleton, very chic in a royal blue coat dress by Alexander McQueen.
Andrew of York, meanwhile, contented himself with a private lunch with the guests of honor, far from the media … and surely far from his nephew and Kate Middleton, already in favor of leaving him away for the Jubilee.
A wish granted: just like Prince Harry, Prince Andrew had been deprived of a balcony at Buckingham Palace for the Trooping The Color parade. Expected the next day at mass, he had sent a discreet press release explaining that he was affected by the Covid-19 and would therefore be absent.
A contamination that had surely relieved the royal family. His two daughters, on the other hand, were present: Eugenie of York also took the opportunity to introduce her son August to the public. Beatrice, meanwhile, was only accompanied by her husband Edoardo.
