This also marks a royal family shake-up as Queen Consort Camilla has taken on a key role stripped from Prince Andrew, Prince William and Kate Middleton have been honoured with new titles.
A report also said that Prince Andrew, despite being stood down from his position as a working royal almost three years ago, was still “blindsided” and “utterly bereft” by the outcome of the conversation. The Daily Mail reported that Prince Andrew was again reduced to tears a second time, after being told he was banned from wearing a military uniform to their mother's funeral.
“Naive as it may sound, he always had hopes of regaining his position as a senior royal,” the report said.
