Prince Charles & William are ‘absolutely furious’ with messy Prince Andrew

Trooping the Colour 2018: The Queen's Birthday Parade

Buckingham Palace courtiers cannot problem-solve their way out of a paper bag, my God. It’s so striking to me that in the last years of Queen Elizabeth II’s reign, no one is capable of any kind of forward-thinking, anticipatory action or PR. Up until about one week ago, Buckingham Palace was totally fine with the Queen throwing a protective shield around Prince Andrew. He was still welcome at Balmoral and Windsor Castle, and sources let us know that they spent tons of time together. Courtiers were also fine with letting everyone know that Andrew had so much support from the Queen, she was the one footing all of his legal bills. And now that sh-t has gotten real and Virginia Giuffre’s lawsuit will likely NOT be thrown out, suddenly Buckingham Palace can’t distance themselves from Andrew fast enough. Suddenly, the Queen isn’t paying any of Andrew’s bills! Suddenly the Queen’s deep pockets are not on the table for any potential settlement between Andrew and Virginia.

As we heard last week, Andrew seemed to be offering £3 million to Giuffre to end this, under the guise of “that’s all he could possibly pay.” There was also a very strange report that Andrew’s lawyers perhaps offered $5 million and Virginia turned it down. Now we’re hearing – surprise – that Prince Charles and Prince William are furious, and that Andrew will not have access to any money from the Queen:

Prince Charles and Prince William are “absolutely furious” with Prince Andrew and want him to “sort out his own mess”. The Duke of Cornwall and Duke of Cambridge are understood to be fuming over suggestions the Queen may be asked to settle Prince Andrew’s mounting legal bills – although some sources have already said she will not.

A palace source told the Mirror: “They are both of the opinion that Andrew can sort out his own mess.”

It comes as the Duke of York is now trying to sell his £17million Swiss chalet as he attempts to raise the funds to pay for his ongoing legal battle with Virginia Giuffre. If the lawsuit gets the go-ahead and he loses, his accuser could also be awarded damages which legal experts predict could be as much as £3million. There is a possibility Andrew could make an 11th hour offer of a ­significant out-of-court settlement, but those with knowledge of the case have confirmed no ­discussions have taken place yet.

A source said: “It is crunch time for Andrew on several fronts. He is meeting all the costs himself so he needs to raise cash fast to pay bills which are increasing by the day. If there was the potential to settle, well, that is an option, but it is in no doubt that the Queen would not assist him in doing so.”

[From The Daily Mirror]

There’s more stuff in there about the Verbier chalet and how Andrew is desperate to push through the sale of his sole piece of real estate so that he can pay his own crushing legal bills. Again though, the Queen is absolutely paying his bills. She’s paying out of the Duchy of Lancaster funds. There doesn’t seem to be anything that Charles and William can do about it other than whine to the Daily Mirror. I mean, at least they’ve finally realized that the Queen looks horrible for supporting (in every way) her human-trafficker son, but again, the Queen is going to continue to support him. All of this “the Queen would never” messaging is the palace throwing a fit about how much this is going to cost them. I hope Virginia stays strong and gets at least $20 million out of these idiots.

  1. I wish I believed this, but the reality is those two need a new whipping boy now that they don’t have Harry and Meghan. Andrew is just the easy target.

    • WhoElse says:

      Exactly. People think Baldy and the unfortunate one are upset by all of this, but I agree with you: they are THRILLED. Charles’ cash-for-honors scandal was really getting going, with allegations that he himself was intricately involved and calls for Scotland Yard to look into it. Meanwhile, the Cambridge PR machine has been working overdrive these past few weeks to keep the rumors of the affair from spilling over from social media to print tabloids, at which point it will be inescapable. So Randy Andy making the rounds for being a corrupt idiot is good for them, in the short term…which is about as far as these people are capable of thinking.

  2. Oh_Hey says:

    Meanwhile this nonce is still HRH and walking around with unearned military titles while Harry for thrown out for the treasonous high crime of marrying a black girl and actually defending her.

    The second I heard that the queen had “stopped paying” Andrew’s bills my mind automatically tacked on the word publicly. He’s her favorite and will be her folly to the end.

    • MaryContrary says:

      This times one million.

    • Becks1 says:

      completely agree with everything you said. She’s still paying, they just don’t want that to be public knowledge.

      • Killfanora says:

        Of course she’s still paying. She has millions stashed away that she can use.

      • Jan90067 says:

        Killfanora, Ol’ Brenda is reported to PERSONALLY be worth HALF A *BILLION* pounds. Now, yes, this includes her horses, personal jewels, art, stocks, investments, and real estate, but I’d bet all *I* own, it includes a nice, tidy sum stashed in her off-shore accounts. She has more than enough she can put her hands on to help Mummy’s Favoruite Boy.

    • Christine says:


  3. Scorpion says:

    Lmao at the Courtiers trying to distance Betty from this mess. We all know that Betty is bankrolling Noncydrew’s and his family’s lifestyle 🤣

    • BothSidesNow says:

      Of course she is. She will also ensue that PedoAndy will be well taken care of in her will and will try to strong arm Chaz into ensuring that he does nothing to harm him. TQ and the courtiers can talk all they want, we ALL know the truth. TQ is certainly bankrolling his legal bills as well as ensuring he has plenty of pocket money as well.

      As for Baldimortm, when is he ever not angry? He has two emotions; raging with anger; clenching his jaw and shaking his tiny fists in anger. That’s all Baldimort has to offer.

    • ThatsNotOkay says:

      lol @ Noncydrew! ☠️

  4. Esmerelda says:

    I can well believe they’re furious. But I think the sudden distancing is about discouraging whatever other victims are thinking of coming forward: “Virginia will get some money, but he’ll be truly broke after this one, and the Queen will not pay for the next (and if she’s unalive Charles and William will definitely not pay a single penny for Andrew)”.
    I believe they know this one is lost, and they’re trying to save their wallets (I have the feeling they don’t care about the victims, there has been no message about justice or reparations or regret for broken lives).

    • Couch potato says:

      Yes, and also try to incourage Virginia to take a deal now when he still has some funds.

      • Stiil_sarah says:

        @ Couch Potato : Andrew AND Sarah Ferguson have always been financial disasters. They live large and then try to beg-borrow-steal enough to pay for everything after the fact. They like to have rich “friends” with dubious morals who pay for everything. This has been their story since they reached adulthood.

  5. RoyalBlue says:

    Nah, miss me with that. They were never furious all these years when Andrew was galivanting on the Lolita Express, spending the queen’s money like a sieve, making deals under the table and being front and centre at Trooping and other royal events. they are only furious that he was caught out, and that it is happening during the queen’s jubilee.

    • Mac says:

      I think Charles has been disgusted with Andrew for decades. I’m not sure he would have cut out the York princesses if he didn’t despise Andrew.

      • RoyalBlue says:

        But never that disgusted to remove his military titles, strip him of royal duties or make him find a job and pay for his lifestyle.

      • STRIPE says:

        @royal blue is Charles able to do those things now or is that in the Queens hands?

      • RoyalBlue says:

        Stripe I think charles has been regent for years (ever since he fired Geidt) and was the one who insisted that andrew step back from royal duties. he has a lot of power.

    • Tessa says:

      The only thing is Andrew may know too much Re: Charles. Charles may have to tread lightly.

      • RoyalBlue says:

        which is why i think it was andrew who leaked about charles’ involvement in the cash for citizenship and honors scandal. warning shot number one.

  6. jazzbaby1 says:

    So, are they angry he’s a degenerate or that his degeneracy is public knowledge?

  7. equality says:

    So Andrew’s situation is “messy” but things about H&M are described as “scandalous”? All these people are warped. Not taking up for Andrew but if I were him I would send out a few pics of PC and his pedophile buddies.

  8. A says:

    The last time Andrew had no money he…well, he got himself into this mess.

    • LaraW” says:

      This. What they actually need to do is pony up the payment for Andrew because he’s more vulnerable than ever to getting in deeper with bribery/cash for access/possible money laundering schemes. I’m certain that story about the $2M unsecured loan from the Luxembourg bank controlled by the Roland family is just the tip of the iceberg. The bank specializes in taking really shady clients that no other bank would touch.

      Andrew is not just a reputational risk— he’s a f-ckin security risk.

      • A says:

        Great points. I’m sure Chuck and Wills want people to think they’re tough on Andrew but the fact is it is not in their interest to leave him in charge of his own decisions and they know that, too.
        Of course an even better outcome would be for Andrew to rot in prison for the rest of his creepy life. But that won’t happen.

    • MissMarirose says:

      That’s a really good point that most so-called journalists covering this story are completely missing. There really needs to be an article analyzing how Andrew (and other royals) become pr and security risks when they associate with rich shady people like Epstein.

      • A says:

        It’s very clear to me that no journalist wants to touch this story at all and would be happier if they could ignore it altogether

      • Christine says:

        They did all ignore it altogether. We heard more push back about Harry and Archie having bare feet in a Christmas photo from these clowns than Andrew has ever faced.

  9. Amy Bee says:

    Yeah, I don’t believe this. Charles and William are really angry because the public is starting to rumble about the Queen funding Andrew’s defence and possibly paying for his settlement deal. They were fine with everything that was going on until last week.

    • BothSidesNow says:

      Yes Amy Bee!! You are spot on!! They have been quiet for months until now. Now all of a sudden we are hearing discontent regarding Chaz and the Bitter Brother. Give me a break! They could care less about PedoAndy, they are just angry that it has become public knowledge that TQ is paying his legal fees.

  10. jferber says:

    I agree with Esmerelda. It’s a cheapskate, poor-mouthing move when everyone knows they have more money than God because the English people have been bilked for centuries (and still are getting bilked–and lied to).

    • RoyalBlue says:

      Absolutely. in the past their ancestors were thieves who stole from the poor to give to themselves.
      they are rich beyond imagination and for generations to come they will never have to worry about where their next meal is coming from.

  11. Tessa says:

    Why is William giving so much power. Charles is next in line.

    • Anance says:

      The press likes to say Charles and William because Charles is deeply unpopular. No one cares what Charles thinks, he is incredibly rich and could bailout Andrew if he wished. (He doesn’t; prefers for his mom to foot the bill.)

  12. Mslove says:

    It’s must be time to remind the public that Charles & William are “furious” at Andrew again. Another example of all talk & no action. If Charles & William really cared, Andrew would be stripped of all titles & honors.

  13. LaraW” says:

    Jfc, this the hill the Queen has chosen to literally die on.

  14. Ariel says:

    So if the queen dies before the settlement of this occurs- does andrew have access to money once she is dead and charles is in charge? Does he have anything of his own?
    I mean, he can’t sell the Royal Lodge.

    • RoyalBlue says:

      Charles will control the purse strings of Lancaster and pay for him. This is the heart and soul of what primogeniture is about. The oldest controls all.

      • Gabby says:

        Ha! Then I hope the old bat cleans Lancaster out paying for Andy’s legal bills and upkeep. I think Andy probably has dirt on Prince Tampon which he can use for leverage.

    • AMA1977 says:

      I would imagine he would inherit something (maybe the majority, knowing TQ) from the queen’s “private” fortune and would probably have more money than he ever has before, which he would then promptly squander.

      • Jan90067 says:

        He will definitely inherit. Most likely got ££££££s from Phil, too. But I’m sure it’s still tied up and not been paid out yet. Estates that large take time.

        But yeah, he and Freeloader will squander it all in a few years. That’s a guarantee.

      • RoyalBlue says:

        Jan, and we will never know how many spawn Phil has out there that will be sharing in the dinero.

  15. WithTheAmerican says:

    If only she could sue the royal family for aiding and abetting rape of children.

  16. Harla says:

    They really can’t keep their stories straight, it’s been reported that Andy is selling the chalet in order to pay back what he owes on it but now he’s going to use that money to pay his legal fees and pay Virginia? How exactly can one pot of money be used for 2 separate things? The press and BP are really counting on the public to completely forget what was said just last week 🙄.

    • Jan90067 says:

      I still think Ol’ Brenda will have one of her shell cos. buy it up so he can get the money.

    • windyriver says:

      Maybe she’s already made her contribution. Apparently the outstanding money due on the chalet was (somehow) paid around last November, the original owner is out of it, it’s free for Andrew to sell – and there’s reportedly an unknown buyer interested. That’s if you believe the DM.

      A neighbor was quoted as saying they won’t be sorry to see the back of the family; all the paps show up whenever they’re there, block the roads, spoil the landscape (fumes from cars), plus Andrew’s situation is unseemly and isn’t the image they want for the area. (They actually said seedy but that’s the gist.). Tsk tsk.

  17. Lizzie says:

    I don’t often blame parents for adult child’s actions but here is an exception. If you, on your third try no less, raise a completely spoilt and entitled child then you are on the hook to pay the legal bills that result when a man believes he is above every law and rule of society just because he is your son.

  18. GR says:

    Let’s not forget that Charles has been shielding his own pedophile buddy, Bishop Peter Ball.

    • Jaded says:

      And let’s not forget Charles’s good friend and pedophile extraordinaire Jimmy Savile. This family is rotten to the core. If half of the horrible things they’ve done and are still doing ever got out the monarchy would crumble and they’d be led off in shackles.

      • Jan90067 says:

        And wasn’t Charles’ beloved mentor, Van Der Post, also accused?

      • Lizzie says:

        I always see reference to Jimmy Savile and try to remember to look him up. This time I will do my research.

      • Zapp Brannigan says:

        Van Der Post was 46 when he made a 14 year old girl pregnant, the girl had being put into his care for a journey back to the UK by her family. Charles thought this chap suitable to be William’s godfather.

      • Lizzie Bathory says:

        And Lord Mountbatten. I have to admit that after learning about the many sexual abusers in Charles’s orbit, including the allegations about Michael Fawcett, I really started to wonder just how “Uncle Dickie” mentored Charles.

  19. Athena says:

    The Chalet went up for sale two years ago and then the story went away which led me to believe the Queen paid the loan. The woman who sold it wanted her money she wouldn’t have gone silent if she didn’t receive her money. Big mistake of Sarah and Co. to go there during the holidays to remind everyone of the existence of the Chalet. If the queen did pay it off, Andrew could have sold it to his daughters for a pound, so it’s no longer his asset. I don’t believe this story that the Chalet is up for sale or in the process of being sold.

    One person that may now get a deposition is one of the woman who testified against Maxwell. The one who claimed Virginia introduced her to Epstein. In a recent interview she recalls Virginia telling her she slept with Andrew, showed her the picture as proof and also recalls Virginia not being upset about it. Would not be surprise me if his attorneys are already in touch with her.

    I don’t see how Virginia is going to get $5M or $20M from Andrew when she only got around $370k from Epstein.

    The queen may keep her head in the sand but her advisors should have settled this years ago. They dismissed Virginia as a young powerless American woman, what damage can she possibly do. Well now they know.

    • Anance says:

      100% true.

  20. Liz Version 700 says:

    Pretending they actually are furious and not relieved for the tabs to be after Andy I have a Question. Were they furious when he was actually hanging out with Epstein after his conviction and being photographed with minors? Or are they just annoyed that it is now causing a fuss? I think we all know …

  21. Jay says:

    So they’ve just now drawn the obvious conclusion that everybody else came to more than a decade ago. Congratulations, guys.

    Supposedly, between the various palaces, they pay millions for communications advisors in one form or another. They should either start listening to them or fire every. single. one of them.

  22. Mrs.Krabapple says:

    I’m probably in a very small minority here, but why SHOULDN’T the Queen pay for a settlement? I can see the outrage that she is paying the legal fees to defend Andrew, but when it comes to making payment to his victim(s), why shouldn’t the Queen do that? She enabled Andrew through the years so that he could get away with this for so long. If a victim needs to be compensated (and they should be), the queen was partially responsible, so she should be financially responsible for damages as well.

    • Emma says:

      I would just like to see this actually impact Andrew; I know he’s not going to jail in the US any time soon, but if a judge or jury finds him guilty and he at least has to pay or even his mother has to pay a sizable chunk of cash like $20 million, that’s some measure of justice. Bonus points if he offers a public apology or statement of some kind admitting his wrong.

      I think he and Sarah do have money saved up but like to pretend they’re in need so they can grift off others and don’t have to touch their principal.

      The queen isn’t on trial, so there’s just no current way to make her personally pay any restitution of any kind.

  23. Pat says:

    You’re right petty Betty isn’t on trial here but she should be. There’s got to be something she could be charged with, perhaps 🤔 having Charles and Andrew?😂😂😂😂
