Prince Andrew ‘visiting Queen every day to make amends over shame he’s brought on family’

Reports suggest it has not been received well by other royals

Prince Andrew is regularly dropping in on the Queen at home as he tries to ‘make amends’, a report claims.

According to the Mirror, the Queen‘s disgraced second son hopes to redeem himself with his mother amid the Platinum Jubilee.

Andrew is reportedly visiting Windsor every day – driving five miles from his own home – in order to restore his reputation.

It comes just a few months after the 62-year-old settled a sex abuse scandal case out of court.

Andrew to return to royal duties?

Last weekend the Telegraph reported Andrew may attend the upcoming Garter Day on June 13.

Andrew is expected to be at Windsor Castle for the ceremony – and is listed in the next day’s Court Circular.

The startling development comes two years after he permanently retired from public duties as a working royal in May 2020.

Andrew was also stripped of his military titles earlier this year and can longer style himself as HRH in an official capacity.

These moves were made before he settled with Virginia Giuffre in February.

She had accused Andrew of sexually assaulting her when she was 17. He has always denied the allegations.
