Prince Andrew won’t attend this year’s Remembrance Sunday service and ‘unlikely’ to again after Jeffrey Epstein scandal


PRINCE Andrew won’t attend this year’s Remembrance Sunday service and is “unlikely” to ever again after the Jeffrey Epstein scandal.

Andrew, 60, will not be included in this year’s service at the Cenotaph on November 8.

The prince is unlikely to appear at the service ever again, the Daily Mail reported.

Sources told the newspaper that his connection to disgraced financier and convicted paedophile Jeffrey Epstein means he is no longer welcome at annual Remembrance Sunday services.

The Queen is expected to oversee this year’s service from the balcony of the Foreign and Commonwealth Building.

Prince Charles will lay a wreath at the Cenotaph in Whitehall on her behalf.

Due to social-distancing rules, other members of the Royal Family are expected to lead commemorations elsewhere this year.

Andrew failed to publicly congratulate his daughter Princess Eugenie after she announced she was pregnant with her first child on Friday.

In July, Andrew was left out of official pictures released yesterday of his other daughter Beatrice’s surprise wedding – even though he walked her down the aisle.

Two photos were sent out by Buckingham Palace – one featured the Princess and her new husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi while the other showed the newlyweds with the Queen and Prince Philip.

But there was no place for the bride’s father.


The Duke of York has kept a low profile since being embroiled in the Jeffrey Epstein scandal.

He hasn’t posted on his social media pages since November last year when he announced he would be stepping back from royal duties.

The Royal is currently under increasing pressure from the FBI to cooperate with them about his friendship with the dead paedophile financier. 

He held crisis talks with the Queen at Balmoral over his involvement in the scandal.

It comes after Virginia Giuffre accused British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell of arranging for her to have sex with Prince Andrew three times in 2001.

Andrew has vehemently denied allegations he slept with Epstein’s sex slave Virginia Roberts.

He also denies he was aware of any wrongdoing by the billionaire financier when they were friends.

The royal’s lawyers have also insisted he has repeatedly offered to speak to the US authorities.

He officially stepped back from public life after a disastrous interview with Emily Maitlis on Newsnight.
