Prince Andrew is probably still getting money from the Queen’s Lancaster funds


The royal reporters have worked themselves into a spiteful lather about the astronomical “cost” of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s security. All of the usual suspects have latched onto the criticism too, just like they did with all of the other anti-Sussex talking points – “I used to like Meghan, but then [whatever nasty story] happened, so now I am filled with an unreasonable bile towards her and her alone.” For what it’s worth, I think somewhere, somehow, the Queen or Charles will be picking up the costs of the Sussexes’ security. I’m sure if we ever do find out, there will be even more criticism because HOW DARE THEY.

Meanwhile, while Meg and Harry exist, it’s funny how no one ever looks at how much the other royal figures cost, huh? Isn’t it soooo weird that His Royal Highness Prince Andrew, the Duke of York, still has royal protection and a giant mansion (the Royal Lodge) and his daughter will have her wedding reception at Buckingham Palace. All of this despite the fact that Andrew was “fired” from royal work because he’s a rapist of human-trafficking victims and he was BFFs with a now-dead pedophile? And if that’s not all, there’s some evidence that the Queen is still very much funding Andrew’s life:

Prince Andrew is still earning money from the Queen after being banned from carrying out royal duties and stripped of £250,000 in public funds, it is reported. The Duke of York stepped down from public duties after his car-crash BBC Newsnight interview about his friendship with billionaire paedophile Jeffrey Epstein.

Despite having stepped down from royal duties in the aftermath, Andrew is reportedly earning money from the Queen’s private funds. A royal insider told Daily Star he is receiving an income from the Duchy of Lancaster – a private estate owned by the Queen which consist of 18,480 hectares of land in the country. It includes assets in Cheshire, Staffordshire, Derbyshire, Lincolnshire, Yorkshire, Lancashire and the Savoy Estate in London. The body earns Her Majesty around £21million a year, although it is not known how much of this is paid to Andrew.

Oh for real? It’s so crazy that none of those nitpicking Royal Rota journalists are trying to figure out just how much money Andrew might be getting from the Queen and where that money is going. Plus, Andrew has his own money – that was why so many people had issues with his sketchy business deals for years. He was a self-dealing “trade ambassador” who likely amassed millions from some of the shadiest businesses, governments and despots in the world. But Mummy still has to fund her favorite child’s lifestyle! Mummy’s favorite still gets royal protection too, and a big mansion! Thank God no one really cares about how much money is being spent on non-working royals, right??

    Disgusting! Lost for words!

      And water is wet. OF COURSE she’s slipping him big bucks. Mummy’s favorite boy can’t be “without” all that a “blood prince” in “entitled to”.

      He should be out on his arse… preferably in a 6′x8′ cell.

  2. Carobell says:

    This situation reminds me of Tony Blair having to tell the Queen she needed to say something about Diana.

    How is it possible that she can be SO BAD at reading the mood of the people?

    Is it because she was brought up literally to think she was representing G-d on earth, and therefore her blood can do no wrong?

    Does she just not care about the women he abused because they aren’t aristocratic and therefore were fair game?

    I just don’t get it.

    I get wanting to protect your child, I’d do anything for my daughter but at a certain point don’t you realize you are doing more harm than good?

    • AnnaKist says:

      All of the above, Carobell. Regardless of ones’s opinion of the Diana Years, before and after her death, Queen and the rest of them have learned nothing. Had they taken any lessons from that era, they’d have supported Harry and Meghan, and she certainly wouldn’t have allowed them to be cast aside and treated so shabbily, irrespective of whether or not they always planned to live a more independent life in Britain or elsewhere. Geez, if simple folk like us can work this stuff out, what was the point of their ultra-expensive education, posh upbringing, riches, opportunities and endless entitlement?

      Andrew is an old perv, and always has been. Now he’s a sponger as well.

    • Lizzie says:

      Her usual SOP is do nothing. AKA never complain, never explain. Most of the time it works to do nothing and wait for a scandal to blow over. She doesn’t pick up when/why it doesn’t work.

      • Mary says:

        @Lizzie, that was never the Queen’s mantra, not when she is letting her courtiers bash her own relatives by leaking things to the Press. She does plenty of explaining through her minions leaking to the Royal reporters. Oh yeah, and in those leaks, an awful lot of complaining is going on!

  3. Valiantly Varnished says:

    Well OF COURSE he is. Pedo Andy has no other source of income now that his personal bank, Epstein, is dead.

  4. Becks1 says:

    Of course he is. Mummy isn’t going to leave him to fend for himself, in his mansion, etc.

  6. Dutch says:

    The Queen doesn’t decide who gets protection. As for giving him private money, of course she is.
    I would like to volunteer, as an American taxpayer, to remove that burden from TQ. Come on over Andy, chat with the FBI and we will be happy to support you for the next 20-30 years or so…

    • Nahema says:

      Lol that would be brilliant. I wish he would speak to the FBI. It looks completely awful that he isn’t and that he continues to have royal perks like the tax payer funded security.

      I don’t have any issue with his daughter’s wedding. They’re no part of this and still the Queens grandchildren but Andrew needs to take responsibility for his actions.

  7. ItReallyIsYou,NotMe says:

    Random thought, but the reference to the Duchy of Lancaster caught my eye. I have been intrigued by the story of John of Lancaster and Katherine Swynford since I read a fictionalized version of it as a teenager (Katherine by Anya Seton). Over the years, I have looked to see if someone has written a non-fiction version of the story but I have never found one. If you want a moment to feel better/worse? That the world isn’t falling apart now, it’s always a mess, read that book.

    • GloryS says:

      Well, Alison Weir wrote a book about her, non-fiction, but it was really, really boring. There are other books available on Amazon.

      As an additional bit of “useless information” her sister Philipa married Geoffrey Chaucer, the author of the Canterbury Tales.

  8. Spikey says:

    Ugh. The header image. I want to punch him.

    Does anybody know how the finances of royal spares are usually handled? Are there “protocols” in place for people like Margaret, Edward, Anne etc.? Or for the Queens father had he not ascended? Is there a difference in what the second / third / fourth child of a reigning monarch is entitled to vs. the brother or sister of the monarch? Thanks.

    I’m wondering about the options once Charles and William are king(s).

  9. Jaded says:

    There’s apparently some new evidence about to drop that Prince Pervert met with Virginia Roberts despite claiming he had ‘no recollection’ of her and did not go to Tramps with her as he was scarfing pizza in Stoke. It’s supposed to be made public shortly in a new batch of American civil lawsuits. So we can all hope this will keep the fires of righteous indignation burning and maybe mummy will finally realize what a monster she birthed.

  10. Lola says:

    So as much as I think Andrew is a nasty piece of work and should be banished from public view, the Lancaster funds are privately held. The Queen can do whatever she wants, even if it looks bad. The security costs for the Sussex’s would be borne out of public funds, hence the outcry.

    • Chrome says:

      The Duchies of Cornwall and Lancaster are NOT the private property of the Windsors. They belong to the Crown (ie the nation) and are held in trust by the current monarch (Lancaster) and Prince of Wales (Cornwall) from which they can derive an income for their activities. If the monarchy was abolished the money from both duchies would revert to the UK Treasury.

  11. GR says:

    I love how the Mirror says the Duke of Yuck is “earning” money from the queen’s funds.

  12. Andrew’s Nemesis says:

    It’s cognitive dissonance, all cognitive dissonance. The mere existence of a ‘royal’ family is the utmost in tortured thinking (‘I’m free!!’ ‘…long may she reign over us’). The public only care about those who fill their tabloids or who have escaped the human zoo (the Wail sycophants even claim that Kween’s hideous raspberry soufflé dress emphasises her ‘incredible beauty’ and ‘regal’ stance). To many of them AbuserAndy is just not that interesting. They’d rather spend their time hounding the two royals who are trying not to cost anything at all.
    The democratisation of the Internet has revealed, beyond anything else, that the general public is not very bright

  13. JRenee says:

    And he will continue to be financially taken care of by Charles when the time comes. He and Fergie have shown that they will do whatever with whomever yo live a pampered life. The money will continue to keep those 2 quiet.
    The Queen will never abandon him…he won’t be punished for the crimes against children either. Very sad situation
