Royal Family News: Prince Andrew Refused A Ceremonial Role During King Charles’ Coronation
British Royal Family news says that with all the talk about whether or not Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will attend King Charles’ Coronation or not, let’s not forget that there’s also Prince Andrew that the royals have to deal with.
There’s a new report that says while the Duke of York will most likely be there for the festivities, he has been refused a ceremonial role during the actual Coronation. Here’s what you need to know.
Royal Family News – Prince Andrew Refused A Ceremonial Role During King Charles’ Coronation
While there’s no doubt that Prince Andrew has really been trying his darn best to carve a new role out for himself despite the fact that he’s been accused of sexual assault, it looks like he will be attending King Charles’ Coronation, but won’t have a signifiant role in it.
Instead, he’ll be taking a back seat while Prince William and his other royal siblings might perform his ceremonial duties for him.
The Daily Mail writes, “Andrew is still a Knight of the Garter, the ancient order of chivalry dating back to 1348, and, traditionally, Garter Knights have performed significant roles during Coronation ceremonies.
When the late Queen was crowned in 1953, four Knights of the Garter were chosen to support her majesty by standing at the four corners of the Coronation Chair during the anointing. Some have suggested that Prince William and the King’s three siblings – Anne, Andrew and Edward – could perform the job.”

Needless to say, many royal critics sure did have a lot to say on the matter. They commented on the report with, “Andrew is a parasite and should be the poster child for why the UK should become a republic,” along with, “What happened to ‘no public appearances’. This farce of an event is a public one not a private family one. He should not be there. I don’t know a single person who wants to see his smug, lying, arrogant face.”
So far Andrew himself has not made any comments about the matter. Watch this space.
