Prince William’s role in stopping his uncle Prince Andrew appearing in public this week was splashed across front pages. 

The Daily Mail’s Diary Editor Richard Eden says this was an example of how he is ‘throwing his weight around more’, by refusing to appear at the Order of the Garter procession alongside his disgraced uncle Prince Andrew.

‘This was an example where he was saying “enough is enough”, no way am I going to be there,’ he tells our programme Palace Confidential. ‘It would have been a terrible look, it’s good, it’s reassuring that William knows that and he knows how damaging that is.’

The ongoing crisis over Prince Andrew’s royal role is more serious than Megxit argues The Mail on Sunday’s assistant editor Kate Mansey. She believes that the situation is ‘even more interesting and more important’ because Andrew’s demotion has been ‘foisted upon him’.

‘This is the modernisation of the monarchy in real time because here you’ve got your birthright, but for the first time you don’t just have to be born into your HRH, this is a totally new thing, that you have to continue to deserve it,’ she says. ‘Andrew feels very sore about it.’

‘The Palace, the Queen, other senior royals, Charles and William are stepping in to protect the monarchy, saying “no no, the monarchy is not something you’re born into any more, this is a privilege and you have to deserve it”,’ she adds.

This problem isn’t going away particularly quickly argues the Daily Mail’s Royal Editor Rebecca English, who points out that despite not appearing at the public Order of the Garter parade, he still attended the private occasions. This stubborn attitude will mean it remains a ‘running sore’ for the Royal Family.

‘Even though he was persuaded to step down from the ledge and not attend the public events, he attended the private lunch and the investiture at Windsor Castle,’ she tells the programme. 

‘And I think that’s really indicative of his state of mind, he is being dragged, screaming and kicking to actually take a proper step back. This is why I think it’s going to be a running sore for the family certainly for the foreseeable future.’
