Prince Andrew would have secretly planned with Princess Diana and his ex-wife Sarah Ferguson to try to prevent Charles from becoming king, and his son William from taking his place on the throne, claims an explosive new biography.
According to the Daily Mail, the Duke of York, lobbying “tough” his mother Elizabeth II, wanted William to take the throne when the queen died, with Andrew himself acting as regent if this happened before William’s eldest son. Charles turned 18 years old.
It is also said that Andrew “pressured” the queen to prevent Charles from marrying Camilla Parker Bowles, claiming that she was not “unreliable” or aristocratic enough.
The accusations are part of royal biographer Angela Levin’s new book, “Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall: From Outcast to Queen Consort,” which will be published on September 29 in United Kingdom.
Levin also maintains that Andrés was “poisonous” about Camilla with Elizabeth II. “He tried to persuade the queen to block Charles from marrying Camilla by being quite venomous, mean, useless and very unpleasant about Camilla,” he notes, citing palace insiders.
‘His behavior was very, very negative and extremely unpleasant for the queen (Elizabeth II), who did not agree. I was told it was one of the rare times she didn’t get her way,” the source added.
The British press points out that Andrew and Charles have a tense relationship, with the king seeking to reduce the monarchy in a move that could expel the Duke of York’s daughters, Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie.
The king reportedly does not want Andrew to play any royal role in the future, following revelations about his dealings with billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, who was found hanged in a New York prison in 2019 while awaiting trial on charges. that he ran a network that used underage girls for sexual relations.
