According to the MailOnline, Prince William has spoken about his unhappiness toward his uncle, a royal source has revealed. The Duke of Cambridge is said to have made the call that Prince Andrew was removed from public life, something that was “the right thing to do,” a source told The Sunday Times. It comes as pressure mounts on Prince Andrew over his relationship with convicted paedophile Jeffrey Epstein.
A source said: “William is becoming more and more involved in decisions about the institution [monarchy] and he’s not a huge fan of his uncle Andrew.”
Prince Andrew released an official statement announcing his withdrawal from royal duty last Wednesday.
The statement read: “It has become clear to me over the last few days that the circumstances relating to my former association with Jeffrey Epstein has become a major disruption to my family’s work and the valuable work going on in the many organisations and charities that I am proud to support.
“Therefore, I have asked Her Majesty if I may step back from public duties for the foreseeable future, and she has given her permission.
“I continue to unequivocally regret my ill-judged association with Jeffrey Epstein.
“His suicide has left many unanswered questions, particularly for his victims, and I deeply sympathise with everyone who has been affected and wants some form of closure.”
The news comes after Prince William and wife Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, sent Twitter into meltdown as they posted a heartbreaking update about their Royal Family duties.
The couple spent time at the Tusk Awards before explaining how the event had impacted on their lives.
