Charles fears Andrew ‘rape’ accusation is ‘unsolvable problem’ that will consign his brother to the wilderness whatever its outcome – amid family concerns over Duke’s continued policy of silence
The Daily Mail: Prince Charles believes his brother will never return to public life, it was reported last night.
Andrew would be consigned to the wilderness – whatever the outcome of the lawsuit he now faces – because of the reputational damage done by his links to paedophile Jeffrey Epstein.
The future king is among the senior royals who have privately expressed concern over the handling of the Duke of York’s latest legal crisis as it emerged it could overshadow the Queen’s historic Platinum Jubilee.
A source told The Times: ‘The prince loves his brother and has the ability to have sympathy for the slings and arrows that his brother endures, whatever the reasons may be.’
The source added: ‘However, this will be unwelcome reputational damage to the institution.
‘He has long ago concluded that it is probably an unsolvable problem.’
The Daily Mail understands that both Charles and Prince William have doubts about the way such serious allegations have been dealt with by Andrew and his legal team.
More than 48 hours after Virginia Roberts Giuffre’s attorney in the US began civil proceedings accusing the 61-year-old royal of ‘rape in the first degree’, sexual battery and sexual abuse, there has been no reaction from Andrew’s camp.
