Prince Andrew has been the talk of the town since the news about his alleged involvement in the infamous Jeffrey Epstein scandal broke. Since then, the former husband of Sarah Ferguson has been keeping a low profile, even missing some important royal events just to avoid another set of controversies.
The brother of Prince Charles reportedly remained in Windsor while his family headed off on a skiing holiday in Switzerland earlier this year. Prince Andrew allegedly decided to stay at Queen Elizabeth’s estate over the New Year period while Sarah Ferguson, Princess Beatrice, and Princess Eugenie enjoyed a family holiday together in the Swiss resort of Verbier.
Now, new reports claimed that “disgraced” Prince Andrew is trying to salvage his royal position through his daughters. Keep on reading to know more details.
Is Prince Andrew Secretly Plotting Against Prince Charles?
Globe Magazine reported that Prince Andrew begged Queen Elizabeth to force Camilla Parker-Bowles, Kate Middleton, and Meghan Markle to bow to his royal-blooded daughters – Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice.

An unnamed insider told the publication:
“Andrew’s desperately trying to salvage his royal status using his kids – and his daying mother! He detests Charles and wants revenge for being banished from royal life over his relationship with American s*x pervert Jeffrey Epstein. He blames his brother for making him a palace outcast as he faces a civil lawsuit in New York accusing him of raping Epstein s*x slave Virginia Giuffre when she was 17. But trying to humiliate royal wives is a recipe for disaster.”
Most, if not all, royal followers are aware that historic rules state blood family royals are always above all others. The same informant furthered:
“Woman who marry into royal family like Camilla, Kate and Meghan – who wed Prince Charles, Prince William, and Harry – are ranked lower than women born into their title. It’s a way to ensure full-blooded royals like Eugenie and Beatrice aren’t pushed aside.”
However, Prince Charles already cut Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice out of royal life despite Prince Andrew’s claims he never had s*x with Virginia Giuffre and did not know about the pervert ways of Jeffrey Epstein. Another source stated:
“Future king Charles declared Andrew’s girls ‘not working royals’ and despite his brother’s furious protests, stripped them of 24-hour taxpayer-funded police protection. The women, now both married mothers, have non-royal day jobs.”
Prince Andrew reportedly wants the princesses' status of his two daughters to be restored publicly within the palace. An unidentified tipster shared:
“Behind Charles’ back, he demanded his 95-year-old mother to order Camilla, Kate and Meghan – if she and Harry ever return from self-imposed California exile – to bow to his daughters. Andrew is Her Majesty’s favorite child and I’m told she agreed that as long as she is queen, Eugenie and Beatrice must be treated as full-blooded royals – curtsies included. Charles and William are furious – and refusing to allow their wives to company. As far as the future kings are concerned, Camilla or Kate will never play second fiddle to Andrew’s daughters – and you can be sure diva Meghan won’t bow to anyone! Andrew’s bid for revenge is backfiring big-time.”
Prince Andrew has yet to comment on these claims about him forcing Camilla Parker-Bowles, Kate Middleton, and Meghan Markle to bow to Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie. So, devoted supporters of Queen Elizabeth’s son should take all these unverified claims with a huge grain of salt until everything is proven true and correct.
Prince Andrew’s Former Maid Revealed An Odd Part Of Her Job
Meanwhile, a former maid of Prince Andrew shared one of the weirdest parts of her job: spending 60 minutes arranging the Duke of York’s collection of 72 teddy bears on a daily basis. Charlotte Briggs revealed to The Sun that she was tasked with the process of meticulously putting the stuffed animals in their places on the bed and around the royal’s room.
Charlotte, who worked at Buckingham Palace in the 1990s, told the publication:
"As soon as I got the job, I was told about the teddies and it was drilled into me how he wanted them. I even had a day's training. Everything had to be just right. It was so peculiar."
Prince Andrew’s ex-helper divulged there were a total of 72 bears from around the globe and most are dressed in sailor outfits. Charlotte Briggs claimed she arranged the collection each day so that the biggest teddy bears were put at the back, then placed in order of size to the smallest at the front.
Charlotte went on to say that she or another maid used a diagram to put the teddy bears in their designated positions around Prince Andrew’s room. The small bears were stacked in an unused fireplace while others were placed on the bed or around the room.
The favorite teddy bears of Prince Andrew were placed on mahogany thrones at his bedside. Charlotte Briggs recalled:
“It was so odd. After all, he was a grown man who had served in the Falklands. But he absolutely loved the teddies and was very clear about how he wanted them arranged."
This is not the first time someone talked about the teddy bear collection of Prince Andrew. In fact, former royal cop Paul Page previously revealed details of the Duke of York’s stuffed toy collection for ITV’s new documentary called Ghislaine, Prince Andrew, and the Pedophile.
Paul, at the time, told The Sun:
"It had about 50 or 60 stuffed toys positioned on the bed and basically there was a card the inspector showed us in a drawer and it was a picture of these bears all in situ. The reason for the laminated picture was if those bears weren't put back in the right order by the maids, he would shout and scream."
Prince Andrew, in 2010, reportedly revealed that he has always collected teddy bears. The father of Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie said he always buys little teddy bears wherever he goes.
