Queen's views on Prince Andrew scandal are 'absolutely off-limits' following scandal

The Queen’s views on the scandal surrounding disgraced Prince Andrew are “absolutely off-limits”, according to one royal expert.

Duncan Larcombe, former Royal editor at The Sun, said that no-one outside the close family circle would know the monarch’s views on the allegations engulfing her son.

Speaking at the end of a difficult year for the royal family, which has seen Prince Andrew accused of sleeping with a teenager trafficked by Jeffrey Epstein, Larcombe told Yahoo UK’s The Royal Special the Queen could “do without this kind of hassle”.
