Six reports of Prince Andrew summit, from William’s fury to the Queen’s ‘lifeline’

Prince Andrew was stripped of his royal patronage and military titles this week, just a day after it was revealed he was going to court for a civil trial.

The decision means the Duke of York has been completely removed from official royal life and will go on to become a normal citizen, according to the Mirror.

On Thursday (13 January) the Queen told him she would no longer use the title of Her Royal Highness in any official capacity.

But Shikhar is said to have not proceeded straight ahead, his lawyer walked into the car park and the prince was stunned by the result.

Here are six key revelations from Windsor Castle as it was decided “the ax should fall sharply” on Andrew’s royal career.

Part of ‘Furious’ William



Prince William is reportedly 'angry' at his uncle for tarnishing the royal family.
Prince William is reportedly ‘angry’ at his uncle for tarnishing the royal family.

Prince William has been “incandescent” over how his uncle has behaved during the legal saga.

The Queen ruthlessly made up her mind on Wednesday, and it took some help for her to reach her conclusion.

The Mirror understands that the enraged Duke is angry at his uncle for defaming the royal family.

A source said: “The Prince of Wales and the Duke of Cambridge are completely attuned to their view that the Duke of York has presided over a complete and utter disaster.”

It is believed that detailed discussions within the William family had been going on for weeks with the need for conscious action.

Andrew ‘shell-shocked’ by decision



Sources say Andrew had no idea about Thursday's news.

Andrew did not see the decision coming and a source described him as “shell-shocked” at the move.

The brutal call came less than 24 hours after New York Judge Lewis Kaplan ruled Andrews to face civil trial. He denies the allegations.

The source said he was shocked and added: “Given the strength with which Judge Kaplan welcomed our arguments, we are surprised by the decision.

“However, this was not a decision on the merits of Ms. Giuffre’s allegations. The Duke will continue to defend himself against these claims.”

Queen confronts Andrew face to face



The Queen is understood to have broken the news personally.

The Queen is understood to have scuttled the decision in a face-off to middle son Andrew.

During a private audience, the Emperor told his son that he would no longer be known as His Royal Highness “in any official capacity” – and would be left to fight his case as a private citizen.

The Duke of York, with a rocky face, was prompted to sit with his mother for 90 minutes at Windsor Castle, a few miles from their home, the Royal Lodge, on Thursday morning.

He informed them about the decision and an official announcement was made hours later.

Andrew ‘tried to bring a lawyer’ to the summit

Sources say Prince Andrew tried to bring his personal lawyer to the summit.

He was taken to Windsor Castle by his brief, Gary Bloxsom, but was swiftly told that he would not be allowed inside with him.

Instead, he waited outside in the car, reports the Daily Mail.

Mr. Bloxsom’s involvement may indicate that Andrew was seeking legal advice before confronting his mother.

Queen’s ‘financial lifeline’



The Queen will still pay the bill for the safety of her son.

Prince Andrew fears financial ruin amid ongoing sex scandal.

A rising legal bill and a possible £10million settlement with her accuser have left her counting the cost of being deported from the royal family.

But Rani has offered a lifeline to her son.

She will not hold any legal bills, but sources have confirmed Andrew will not lose his security details.

If the Queen is released, the Queen will personally bear the cost of her £300,000 security.

Discussion ‘lasted for hours’

The Queen and Prince William spoke at length in their private quarters before making the decision.

A royal source said last night the Duke of Cambridge was locked in talks with his grandson “for over an hour”.

William, 39, is understood to have made sure no stone was left unturned.

Prince Charles also attended the summit. He spoke to the Queen over the phone from Scotland, where she is currently living.

Andrew and the Queen spoke for more than 90 minutes, it was claimed, as he dropped the bomb.
