PRINCE Andrew is being lined up to accompany the Queen to the Epsom Derby on Platinum Jubilee weekend, reports claim.
The news comes as the duke, who settled a sex abuse case earlier this year, was mired in a fresh financial scandal over the weekend.
The disgraced son of the Queen, 62, will chaperone Her Majesty to the Epsom race meet in June, insiders said.
It is another tip-toe into the limelight following his controversial central role at at Prince Philip’s memorial last week.
A source said: “He was meant to stay invisible during the Platinum Jubilee so there is no way he will be at events like Trooping the Colour.
“But the Queen needs a chaperone on all occasions at the moment due to her mobility issues and Andrew has earmarked the Derby as the one he will accompany her at.
“He just doesn’t seem to understand the public outcry.”
Meanwhile, the Duke has also been linked to a massive money-laundering con.
Turkish multi-millionairess Nebahat Evyap Isbilen alleges banker Selman Turk tricked her out of almost £40million, with £1.1million going to Andrew.
