According to a new book, Prince Andrew pushed Queen Elizabeth II to keep his brother from becoming king. Angela Levin’s new biography, «Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall: From Outcast to Future Queen Consort,» claims that Andrew, Duke of York, and Sarah, Duchess of York, plotted with Princess Diana to prevent King Charles III from taking the throne. According to The Daily Mail, a senior palace insider told Levin, «When Diana was alive, through her friendship with Andrew’s wife Sarah, [Duchess of York], she plotted with Andrew to try to push Prince Charles aside so Prince Andrew could become Regent to Prince William, who was then a teenager.» The inside source added, «His behavior was very, very negative and extremely unpleasant to Queen [Elizabeth], who disagreed. I was told it was one of the rare occasions he didn’t get his way.»
Not only did Andrew try to keep his brother from becoming king, but Levin’s book also alleges he was «hostile» to Queen Camilla and «lobbied» his mother against Charles marrying her. Now that his brother is king, you can bet he hasn’t forgotten his brother’s betrayal. The New York Post reported that at Queen Elizabeth’s funeral, Andrew wasn’t allowed to don his military uniform. There will likely be big changes for Andrew in the coming months.
