It is ‘unlikely’ that Prince Andrew will ever appear on a Remembrance Day again

Prince Andrew celebration of 75 years of liberation of Brugge

For the past two years, we’ve seen the near constant media and courtier attacks on the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, and we’ve seen how those same people behave with regard to Prince Andrew’s criminal behavior, his shady finances, his friendship with the convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, and his reported rape and abuse of victims of human trafficking. The comparisons are startling. So in a week full of manufactured Sussex “drama,” a curious little item popped up on the Daily Mail regarding Prince Andrew. November will mark the one-year anniversary of Andrew’s disastrous BBC interview and his “stepping down” from full-time royal duties. I honestly thought he would be “back” by now. Andrew did too. But here we are, talking about how Andrew is being shoved away (quietly, respectfully) from any public appearances to mark Remembrance Day in November.

The Duke of York will not be present at this year’s Remembrance Sunday service at the Cenotaph and sources say it is ‘unlikely’ he will ever make an appearance again. Royal aides are said to have been ‘agonising’ over how to handle the predicament.

Plans for a significantly pared-down service this year are said to have given them the perfect excuse not to include the beleaguered prince in the traditional royal line-up on November 8.

Buckingham Palace is in the process of finalising the event but, subject to receiving appropriate advice, the Queen will again oversee the commemorations from the balcony of the Foreign and Commonwealth building overlooking the Cenotaph in Whitehall. The 94-year-old’s heir, the Prince of Wales, will lay a wreath on her behalf. She handed over this duty to him in 2017 due to her age.

Other members of the Royal Family who normally attend the event, organised by the Royal British Legion, are likely to lead commemorations elsewhere due to social distancing rules.

I would assume that Andrew has been told to not make any plans to join in any way. I would also assume that this is not the Queen’s call – clearly, she would love to have her favorite son involved on Remembrance Day or any day, really. Also: now I kind of wonder if William and Kate will be involved on Remembrance Day? Especially if they’re trying to do a limited, social-distanced ceremony? Hm.

Maybe Andrew can earn his way by washing her floors on Christmas Day so her staff can spend time with their families?

    “agonizing over how to handle the predicament”???????
    How’s this?????
    “Welllll Andy, you raped young women, refused to give up your friendship with a well known CONVICTED paedophile, then went on national tv and lied, lied, lied all the way through it. The OPTICS, think of the optics. Besides, if YOU show up, how can we blame the Sussexes for anything? So. Do us all a solid and watch from your favorite pizza joint, k? Kthanxs”
    There.

    Poor Andrew, said none of us.

  3. Elizabeth Regina says:

    How disappointing that the sweat free friend of a peadophile whose mummy had to bail out of debt will not be honouring brave men and women who fought to defend his country.

  4. Amy Bee says:

    If Andrew is going to banned from Remembrance Day, which is essentially a military event, how is he still holding on to his honorary military titles?

    • Myra says:

      Asking the right questions. This meaningless gesture is supposed to placate whom exactly.

    • fluffy_bunny says:

      How is it he can’t participate in a military ceremony because he brought shame upon the family and still hold honorary titles while Harry doesn’t and Harry’s only “sin” is loving and leaving the royal life for a black woman?

    Good. Keep the deadshit under lock and key, which should have been done years ago. Gag him as well. Tether him to a strong steel structure while you’re at it.

    I seriously doubt it was agonizing for Charles to lay down this edict. They’re hoping for out-of-sight, out-of-mind, but we will not forget that Andrew’s reaction to people’s horror at his friendship with sex trafficker-rapist Jeffrey Epstein was utter confusion, because said sex trafficker-rapist provided the idiot prince with good business contacts.

    aww poor little rapist seeing the teeniest little consequence for his actions. #abolishthemonarchy

  8. Jaded says:

    The only Remembrance Day he should have is remembering the vile sexual predator he was good friends with, the teenage women he forced himself on and how badly it’s messed them up.

  9. Charfromdarock says:

    The only place he should appear is a court of law.

  10. Sarah says:

    Good.

  11. HeyJude says:

    Ugh, those photos are gross everyone he’s always right up next to his mommy. 60-year-old grown grandfather and yet still mummy’s little randy lap dog.

  12. Sofia says:

    He will be missed.

    -Said no-one ever.
