Prince Andrew Could Be ‘Canceled’ Under King Charles

  Prince Andrew Could Be ‘Canceled’ Under King Charles Prince Andrew has always been his mother’s favorite child, and the defiant messaging from Buckingham Palace on Monday—as the dust settled on Andrew’s disastrous BBC interview, and an allegation was made that he had used the n-word in a meeting with a Foreign Office official—was that he retained the full confidence of the monarch. A senior royal source told the Evening Standard: “His Royal Highness has the backing of the Queen and his close family, they believe in him totally and think he has shown strength for telling the truth and admitting errors he has made. There is no question of him being ordered to reduce his duties. He wants to get on with his job. He has told the truth, in detail.

The event, hosted by Governor-General Dame Patsy Reddy, drew to a close a second busy day of engagements for Charles and Camilla on their New Zealand royal tour. 

The tour now moves to Waitangi, a significant region in the history of New Zealand where a treaty was signed on the relationship between the Maori and Crown.
