There are fears that Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie will have their roles in the royal family challenged following their father Prince Andrew's effective "sacking" from royal duties.

The prince has spent the last months battling the rumours surrounding his relationship with sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, and faced public outrage following a "train wreck" BBC interview on the topic last week.

On Wednesday he officially "stepped back" from royal duties, effectively resigning from public life as a royal, a decision which could have consequences for his daughters.

Andrew has made a tremendous effort to keep Beatrice and Eugenie close to the Queen in order Andrew didn’t respond, but the answer seemed obvious, especially to his handlers in Buckingham Also, for the sake of his daughters, Andrew didn’t want to cause a commotion at Buckingham Palace.

Both Beatrice and Eugenie have stayed out of the drama that has surrounded their father for weeks, but that may not be enough to protect their roles as royals.

Neither are considered senior royals yet, meaning their royal duties are limited and both have day jobs that they work between charity causes and royal events.

Prince Andrew reportedly always wanted more for his girls and has pushed for Beatrice and Eugenie to have their own senior roles within the royal family, but that may never happen now that he has resigned from his own role.

The scandal surrounding Andrew's departure from public duties, as well as the ongoing drama in regard to his connection to Epstein, means it's unlikely the princesses will be seeing a promotion any time soon.

BBC royal correspondent Peter Hunt tweeted: "Andrew's daughters, Princess Beatrice and Eugenie will now have to focus exclusively on their non-royal day jobs. Their father can no longer champion their part-time royal roles."

Stepping down also means that Andrew will lose his almost $475,000 salary, parts of which were used to help fund Beatrice and Eugenie's lives.

Though both women earn their own salaries in their day jobs, Beatrice in finance and Eugenie as a director at a London art gallery, the loss of royal funding could affect them.

But more pressing is Beatrice's upcoming wedding, which was set to be the next great royal occasion but has had a shadow cast over it by the recent scandals.

However, 9Honey's royal columnist Victoria Arbiter says the controversy surrounding Prince Andrew won't necessarily ruin the upcoming royal wedding.

"This will have cast a black cloud over the planning stages, but hopefully Beatrice will be judged on her own merits as opposed to those of her father," Arbiter tells 9Honey.

"She is not the guilty party here, and her wedding day should be celebrated in the same way as any other bride."

Prince Andrew 'may never return to public life' .
Just over a week after Prince Andrew "stepped back" from royal duties, royal sources have suggested that he "may never return to public life." The Duke of York was forced to give up his responsibilities following his 'train wreck' interview about his relationship with Jeffrey Epstein, in which he claimed the paedophile acted in a "manner that was unbecoming".
