Prince Andrew ‘was in Coronation photo shoot’ but pics ‘won’t be released’

Prince Andrew was reportedly included in the photoshoot for King Charles’ Coronation alongside other members of the Royal Family, but they will never be released.

The King's younger brother, 63, who was booed as he arrived at Westminster Abbey for the Coronation ceremony, remains banned from royal duties following the fallout from his connections to the convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.

Andrew's presence at the historic occasion was kept as low-key as possible, and neither his name nor his title had a mention in the entire lengthy ceremony programme.

Ahead of the celebrations, Buckingham Palace confirmed neither Andrew and his nephew the Duke of Sussex, 38, would not have any formal role at the event as they are no longer working royals.

But Andrew is believed to have posed for photos with other royals for the Coronation, although his image was notably missing from those that have been released by Buckingham Palace this weekend.

It is reported that the Duke of York was with photographer Hugo Burnand and had some snaps taken of himself, having requested pictures being taken of him in his regalia, despite not being a working royal.

An insider told the Telegraph: "Andrew wanted to be included in the photoshoot and requested that there would be time in the schedule for him to be photographed. He wanted to make sure there was an official record of his participation in his brother’s Coronation.

"But it is unlikely the images will be released by the palace."

OK! has contacted Buckingham Palace for comment.

Prince Andrew left his role as a working royal after his close friendship with convicted paedophile Jeffrey came to light.

In a further damning strike against him, the Prince was also subsequently stripped of his royal HRH title in January 2022 following accusations of sexual assault against Virginia Giuffre – a teenage victim of Jeffrey.

Prince Andrew has always strenuously denied the allegations, but did agree to settle the case for an unspecified amount of money, thought to be in the millions.

Andrew denied the claims and paid millions in an out-of-court settlement in the US civil case.
