Queen in ‘despair’ over her familys actions, says royal expert

The Queen will be "in despair" over the actions of some of her children and grandchildren, Royal expert Jennie Bond has told OK!.

In recent days, Prince Andrew has been under the spotlight thanks to a new ITV documentary presented by Ranvir Singh, called Ghislaine, Prince Andrew and the Paedophile.

In the documentary, Ranvir delved into the the accusations made against Ghislaine Maxwell, Jeffrey Epstein and Prince Andrew, who is set to face a civil trial regarding a sexual assault claim. The Duke of York has vehemently denied all accusations.

Following confirmation that the civil trial will take place, it was revealed last week that Andrew has lost his honorary military titles and is no longer be able to use the term HRH.

Speaking exclusively to OK!, royal expert Jennie Bond explained: "I think The Queen will be holding her hands up in despair with her children and some of her grandchildren."

The expert added that there should be some "equity" after Prince Harry's military titles were stripped when he stepped back as a senior royal in 2020.

She said: "Everybody feels for the Queen now with the Andrew debacle, but I think there has to be some equity between Harry and Andrew now. There was the argument and it probably wasn't correct, but if Harry has been stripped of his titles then Andrew should have been some time ago."

Harry also made headlines this week as it's been reported that he could be planning to take legal action against the British government if he is denied police protection when he visits the UK.

The Duke of Sussex issued a "pre-protocol" letter to the Home Office suggesting his lawyers will seek judicial review if continued police security isn’t provided by the UK when he and his family are in the country. Harry's lawyers made it clear he is happy to pay for the added protection.

According to Jennie, Prince Andrew's security should be revised too.

She said: "If Harry is not going to be allowed to have security over here unless he's staying in a royal residence then perhaps Andrew's security should be looked at too."

On the other hand, the expert says Harry should look at the life he has chosen after moving to the US.

She explains: "There has to be some kind of equity between the two of them but Harry needs to look at himself, he's chosen this way of life, he wants to be regarded as a royal citizen, and he can't pick and choose like this."

Jennie added that Prince Harry can't have it both ways.

She explained: "He can't be treated as a royal with all of the trimmings while he's over here and then swan off back to the states and say that you're not. I don't think the penny's quite dropped yet."

Harry moved to the US in 2020 after he and wife Meghan Markle decided to step back from senior royals, and they now raise their two children – Archie and Lilibet – in California.
