Good morning all! This past weekend, Camilla Tominey had a piece in the Express reporting that Prince Andrew and Prince Charles are at odds again over the status of the York sisters.
Andrew, according to Tominey, wrote the Queen insisting that his girls be given full-time royal status.
The row escalated after Andrew, 56, wrote to his mother demanding that Beatrice and Eugenie carry out full-time royal duties supported by the Sovereign Grant – the public purse which funds the Royals’ work. The letter, originally drafted by the Duke’s private secretary and “gatekeeper” Amanda Thirsk, complained that the princesses were in danger of being overshadowed by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry when Charles becomes king.
