The Duke of York should have taken part in the procession of the ceremony, but had to forgo it.
Prince Charles and Prince William reportedly prevented Prince Andrew of York from attending.
After a successful Platinum Jubilee, the party continues in Windsor. On Monday, June 13, 2022, the Order of the Garter ceremony was held. The Order of the Garter is the most prestigious of British chivalry. Prince Andrew of York, 62, lost his HRH because of the sexual assault case Virginia Giuffre accused him of. His prestigious title of Colonel of the Grenadier Guards was also stripped from him, among other things. On the other hand, the second son of Queen Elizabeth II of England, 96, remains a Knight of the Order of the Garter although he is removed from office, specifies the Mirror.
The last public appearance of Prince Andrew of York dates from March 29, 2022. The father of Beatrice of York and Eugenie of York then accompanied Queen Elizabeth II of England to go to the service of thanksgiving for the Prince Philip at Westminster Abbey. This Monday, June 13, the brother of prince Charles and princess Anne was expected during the traditional procession of the ceremony of the Order of the Garter of which he is still a member. But that did not happen, Prince Charles, his brother, 73, and Prince William, his nephew, 39, are said to have pressured Queen Elizabeth II of England not to grant him this privilege.
Prince Andrew: The Duke of York must stay behind the spotlight
Prince Charles and Prince William feared damage to the reputation of the royal family. “It is a decision taken by the house in the interests of the family, but also in the interests of the Duke of York,” a source told the Mirror. Thus, Prince Andrew of York only attended the private part of this prestigious ceremony. However, the second son of the Queen would like to resume his functions and his titles. Note that “the Queen had secret talks with her second son and members of the royal family to discuss his future,” says The Mirror.
