Prince Andrew has made a demand to Charles after reportedly refusing to leave Royal Lodge despite being asked to vacate the premises, royal sources have claimed.
The Royal Family is reportedly eager to shift the Duke of York, 63, from his home of 20 years as King Charles III shuffles the Firm’s senior members into new residences.
The 30-room mansion on the Crown Estate is expected to receive Prince William and Kate, the Princess of Wales.
Andrew would have to downsize and move into Frogmore Cottage, the former residence of Prince Harry and Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex. However, he is reportedly resisting relocation attempts, insiders have suggested.
Discussions about the move have so far been between officials but Andrew has insisted he would rather speak to his older brother face-to-face with friends of the Prince suggesting to Sky News he could come to a deal with the King if he just agreed to “do the right thing” and talk it out.
The friend also said Prince William should reach out “for a cup of tea” with his uncle to lay out a timeline that would suit both families.
Sources have told prominent US journalist Daphne Barak that the Prince is fearful that the royals may attempt to force him out.
Insiders said he worries building managers may turn off his gas, water and electricity, leaving him with little choice but to move into his new property.
Ms Barak, who is reportedly “very close” to people who are closest to the Prince, quoted her source as saying he is concerned the “knives are out” following the Coronation.
They said: “He’s concerned that now the Coronation is over, the knives are out.
“He’s worried that the royals might even turn off the utilities to get him out of there. But we’re dealing with human beings, not real estate.”
Another source added that he is seeking a meeting with the King, saying: “If Charles wants Andrew to play ball and help the family, aren’t there better ways of going about it? Why not do the decent thing, sit down and talk?”
