With a letter, the Duke of York, 62, not only paid tribute to the Queen, the “mother of the nation”, but above all to her “mum”.

“Mom, your love for a son, your compassion, your caring, your trust will always be cherished,” Andrew wrote.


“I have found your infinite knowledge and wisdom, without limits or limitations.”

Prince Andrew, often regarded as the favorite son of the sovereign who died on September 8 at the age of 96, was banned from all public appearances because of his friendship with pedophile Jeffrey Epstein and stripped of his military titles earlier this year following charges of sexually assaulting a 17-year-old girl, Virginia Giuffre.

Threatened with a lawsuit in the United States, he settled the lawsuits by paying millions of dollars.

In March, the Queen appeared to give him a sign of public support by entering Westminster Abbey holding his arm for a service in honor of Prince Philip, husband of Elizabeth II, who died a year earlier.

These images had provoked many outraged reactions.

His presence for ten days of tributes being paid across the UK caused headaches for the royal family.

In the past few days, when he and his siblings have appeared at the processions behind the coffin of Elizabeth II in Edinburgh and then in London, unlike the other siblings, he did not wear a uniform.

But out of “respect” for the Queen, he was still allowed to appear in military garb at the “Princes’ Vigil” on Friday when he, King Charles, Princess Anne and Prince Edward watched for 15 minutes, back to the coffin, their mother’s remains are on public display in Westminster Hall.

However, he should have no official role under Charles III. find who, according to the press, would have urged Elizabeth II to withdraw his titles so as not to damage the family’s reputation.
