New book: Andrew ‘pressure’ Elizabeth to prevent Charles from becoming king


In a new book, sources revealed that British Prince Andrew “pressured” his mother, Queen Elizabeth II, to prevent his brother Charles from becoming King of England.

In the controversial biography: “Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall: From Unlikely to Future Queen Consort,” author Angela Levine alleged that Andrew conspired with Princess Diana and his ex-wife, Sarah Ferguson, to prevent Charles from being crowned king before Elizabeth died, according to a New York Post report. .

According to the book, which details Camilla’s life, Andrew fought hard against the marriage and union of Charles and Camilla, who are now King and Queen consort.

Levine, who has written several biographies of the lives of members of the royal family, attributes her information to a “major insider” who said Andrew conspired with Diana to “push Prince Charles aside”.

Instead of Andrew becoming king, Charles’s eldest son, William, was then in line for the throne, but not if the queen died before he turned 18.

The source told the author: “When Diana was alive, through her friendship with Sarah (Duchess of York), she plotted with Andrew to try to keep Prince Charles aside so that Andrew could become regent to Prince William, who was then a teenager.” The source described those times as “dark and strange” and filled with “paranoia”.

“His behavior was extremely negative and unpleasant for Queen Elizabeth…It was said to be one of the rare occasions when he did not get what he wanted…However, it appears that he was very angry that he could not somehow govern the country.” He has been very hostile to Camilla’s appearance and acceptance.”

According to the book, Levine claimed that Andrew was “very bad” and “toxic” towards Camilla, because he thought she was untrustworthy.

Charles and his brother Andrew had a tumultuous relationship over the years, especially after the Duke of York was stripped of his military titles, following a sexual assault case and the revelation of his relationship with Jeffrey Epstein. Even at his mother’s funeral, he was forbidden to wear his uniform.
