Prince William allegedly wanted to ensure that Prince Andrew totally relinquished his role as a royal in the wake of his sex scandal.

Following a sex scandal, the Queen removed the Duke of York from his military titles and HRH rank, and he resigned from royal obligations. 

The claims were denied by Prince Andrew, who later secured an out-of-court settlement with his accuser. The agreement does not imply that the defendant is guilty.

Prince William appears to be playing a bigger role in keeping Prince Andrew hidden behind closed doors. 

According to the Daily Mail, Prince William has strong feelings about the Duke of York and believes that his desire to hold on to a public post is dangerous to the institution.

Another individual, an acquaintance, indicated that if it had been up to him, Prince William would have cut Prince Andrew loose a long time ago. 

This comes after Prince Andrew was reportedly angry when he was denied admission to Windsor Castle's grandiose Garter Day march earlier this month.

The Duke of York was reportedly persuaded by Prince Charles and Prince William to keep Prince Andrew hidden from the public eye at the ceremony. 

Prince Andrew was unhappy and bewildered by the decision after expecting to be a part of the celebration. 

Unfortunately, the Queen allegedly made the last decision as Andrew had purportedly been placed on the Order of Service.

Due to a positive COVID-19 test, Prince Andrew has previously missed the Queen's Platinum Jubilee celebrations. 

Insiders claimed that William and Charles agree on Andrew's public status in the future as a royal.

According to another tipster, they have identical opinions on the family's future goal, and William is "completely on the same page as his father, always has been, always will be."

It comes as Prince William and Kate Middleton plan to move from Kensington Palace to Adelaide Cottage near Windsor Castle in the coming weeks, easing William's transition towards taking on extra responsibilities from the Queen, who is suffering from mobility issues. 

Mirror mentioned that Prince William is known to phone his grandmother many times a week, and the Cambridges are expected to spend time with the monarch as a family.

Meanwhile, lawyers for an alleged victim of Jeffrey Epstein recently threatened to serve him with court paperwork.

The latest move placed Prince Andrew in a new legal bind. Caroline Kaufman, 28, claims Jeffrey Epstein raped her in December 2010 when she was 17 years old.

Her representatives believe that on the same night, Prince Andrew paid a visit to the pedophile financier in his New York home, and they are expecting a response from the Duke. 

During the visit, he was seen inside the Upper East Side mansion, and Kaufman's allies believe he will testify.

The court case makes no allegations of wrongdoing against Duke, nor does it claim that he was aware of Kaufman's assault. 

Spencer Kuvin, her lawyer, said he would explore presenting Andrew with legal documents in order to get a statement from him.

Kaufman claimed in her Manhattan Federal Court lawsuit against Epstein's $630 million legacy that she was invited to his home for a modeling interview. 

According to Express, she alleges she was then led to a massage parlor, where the millionaire allegedly raped her.
