THE Queen is defiant that scandals involving Prince Andrew and Prince Harry will not ruin her final years on the throne, it has been claimed.
This week Andrew asked for a jury trial over rape allegations he denies, leaving royals convinced a public trial will cause IRREPARABLE damage to the Monarchy.
And Prince Harry and Meghan Markle continue to make headlines for all the wrong reasons, seeming to ignore anti-vaxx content on Spotify, failing to make content despite multi-million deals, and demanding UK police provide security.
But despite her disgraced son and wayward grandson, the Queen will do everything she can to ensure her final years on the throne don’t trash the memory of her 70 years of incredible service to the country.
Media lawyer Mark Stephens told the Mirror he couldn’t conceive that the Queen would allow Prince Andrew to press ahead with a public trial and overshadow this year’s Platinum Jubilee – possibly the final major milestone of her reign.
“It’s going to spark debate about the relevancy and appropriateness of the royal family and we’ve already seen that they moved very fast to strip him of his titles and that debate abated but the more detail that comes out the more there’s going to be a problem for the wider royal family.”
