A few weeks ago, royal insiders spilled that Prince Andrew is “refusing to budge“ from the $46 million Royal Lodge, despite his landlord, King Charles III, wanting his ass out. Andrew has reportedly launched into full squatter mode and is doing everything in his minuscule amounts of power to stay put. The first move in his playbook seems to be renovating Royal Lodge, hoping the uninhabitable construction site will buy him some time, all while keeping his nephew, Prince William, from moving in with Kate Middleton and their children.
According to Page Six, a source claims that construction on the Royal Lodge will continue until the end of the summer. Charles allegedly wants to shove Andrew in Frogmore Cottage, the property Prince Harry and Meghan Markle recently got booted out. But apparently, Andrew has lent Frogmore to his daughter, Princess Eugenie, who’s fresh out of the delivery room after giving birth to her second child. Of course, that’s probably just another move from Andrew’s Squatters Playbook since Charles wouldn’t get near the optics of kicking out a recovering mother and her baby with a 10-foot pole. Andrew must be snickering and thinking he’s slicker than the grease between his fish and chips! The disgraced prince is using what little he has left of his inheritance from THE QUEEN to fix up “the damp and mold problems,” according to Page Six:
Initially Andrew — who was forced out of royal duties after settling a sex-abuse case with Jeffrey Epstein accuser Virginia Roberts Giuffre in 2022 — had claimed he couldn’t afford to do the work on the 30-room property, which comes with a swimming pool and tennis court, and which he still shares with ex-wife Sarah Ferguson.
Charles was then going to use Andrew’s plea of poverty to push him out in favor of someone who could afford to do the repair work. Now that excuse is gone.
To add insult to insubordination, Andrew has loaned the house Charles had offered him instead — the five-bedroom Frogmore Cottage, where Prince Harry and Meghan lived — to his daughter Princess Eugenie.
Meanwhile, Andrew’s wheezing construction dust over his morning tea and living on plastic-protected furniture. A royal insider adds, “Andrew was advised that he should move out while work was undertaken because the house is virtually a building site but he’s refused because he’s so terrified that the property might be seized in his absence.”
This whole situation has probably got Andrew saying, “Dignity?? Never heard of her!” I’m almost in awe at this level of broke-boy behavior exhibited by a man born into royalty.
