Prince Andrew, pictured in Windsor this year, has been ‘isolated’ from his family and is the only member of the firm ‘clinging’ to the idea that he could ever return to public life, a royal editor has claimed Is

Speaking on ITV’s Lorraine, he said: ‘I think he’s the only person in the whole world at the moment who’s attached to this aspect that he can come back.’

39-year-old William, who is second in line to the throne, is said to have been involved in crisis talks with his grandmother and father over the decision to suspend Andrew from public duty.

It was also reported that Andrew’s siblings – Charles, Anne and Edward – also refused to return to public duty at a meeting in January.

Russell said The Duke of Cambridge, who is becoming a trusted ‘lieutenant’ to both the Queen and the Prince of Wales, is not particularly ‘a fan of his uncle’.

‘Prince William will obviously take over one day,’ he said. ‘I think we’ve seen him really come to the fore in his new role of being trusted lieutenant to the Queen and Charles.

The source added, ‘Not only does he think he’s a threat, but what he really gets is his sense of authority and the way he’s handled himself throughout this saga, making him a fan of his uncle Andrew. Not there.

‘This says a lot about the relationship between them and how he wants to settle this business before it causes further damage to the monarchy.’

He also speculates that ‘a certain person’ may have taken the idea ‘many years ago’ that the Duke of York is Her Majesty’s ‘favourite child’.

Russell said he was ‘shocked’ after Prince Philip’s death in April, when Andrew was ‘front and center’ of media coverage – the rest of the firm was angered by his ‘power play’ to protect his reputation.

“It looks like they are closing ranks on him together and he has become quite isolated,” he said.

According to royal expert Russell Myers, the firm is 'closing ranks' on Andrew out of fear he will cause further damage to the firm and is angered by his attempt to use the Duke of Edinburgh's death to back public favor.

According to The Sunday Times, a royal source said over the weekend: ‘There is no way for him to come back into the world, the family will never allow this to happen.

A third source was quoted as saying that Prince William is ‘triggered’ by his uncle’s alleged ‘ungrateful and ungrateful’ attitude towards his post, which Williams sees as a ‘risk’ and ‘a threat to the family’.

‘Any suggestion that there is no gratitude for the institution, anything that might lead anyone in the public to think that senior members of the royal family are not grateful for their position,’ [William thinks] Really dangerous,’ the Sunday Times quoted the source as saying.

MailOnline was told that Buckingham Palace was not commenting on the matter.

It comes after it was revealed that Andrew’s legal team would be allowed to review an earlier secret agreement that his lawyers hope will save him from a sexual abuse trial in the US.

A US district judge on Wednesday allowed lawyers for the Duke of York to obtain a copy of a confidential settlement between the late financier Epstein and Ms Giuffre.

Relatives, colleagues and even ex-wife Sarah Ferguson could be forced into court to answer questions about Prince Andrew, what the Duke should do At the end of this month in New York, a case of sexual abuse has got the green signal.

The Duke is preparing to privately hand over ‘personal documents’ in an intrusive process that could see relatives and royal aides being dragged into proceedings, reports Wire.

This could include ex-wife Sarah Ferguson, who remains loyal to the embattled Duke, who could face subpoenas if Andrew fails to work out his case.
