Royal Family news – Prince Andrew ‘SNUBBED’ by Charles and William during Philip service after Queen shows her support


PRINCE Andrew was ‘shunned by the royal family and didn’t interact warmly with them’ at Prince Philip’s memorial despite walking in alongside The Queen.

The Duke of York, accompanied Her Majesty to the service but had little interaction with the rest of his family.

Andrew reportedly avoided receptions and drove straight back to Westminster with his mother after the service.

The Queen appeared to ‘look unequivocal’ in her support of her second son, while the rest of The Firm offered ‘no signs of support or encouragement’ and ‘pretended to not even see him’.

Body language expert Judi James explained to FEMAIL: “Andrew did not get the same sort of welcome [as the Queen gave him] from the other royals. 

“Only his mother threw him anything bordering on a “welcome back” smile and, rather than throw him subtle tie-signs of support or encouragement, most of the royals seemed to attempt to act as though they hadn’t even seen him. 

“Taking his place next to Edward he cut an isolated but defiant-looking figure, but there were no glances or even nods of greeting and no discernible eye contact. 

“The eye-avoidance looked deliberate, with most of the Firm staring pointedly ahead as though barely even aware of him.

“Edward and Sophie are often used as the buffers of the royal firm, famously chatting animatedly to avoid the frost between William and Harry on their last public outing, but there were no signs of warmth or connection between these brothers until the singing of the hymn.

“Andrew turned his head to speak to Edward and Sophie and they replied with the coolest of responses.”
