New reports suggest that three members of the royal family didn’t go to the 60th birthday party of the disgraced Prince Andrew, following his disastrous interview regarding his involvement and personal ties with Jeffrey Epstein.
The Daily Mail was the first to report that Andrew’s 60th birthday party was fraught with problems following the aforementioned Epstein scandal, with the Queen eliminating plans for a great party while at the same time sending out abrupt invites to replace those who were no longer going to come.
While his party drew a crowd of 50 people, none of the senior royals attended, The Daily Mail reported. For instance, Sebastian Shakespeare claims his older brother, Prince Charles, wasn’t there and neither was Prince Edward or Princess Anne.
Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip posted a baby photo tribute of Prince Andrew earlier in the day, but that accrued some heat on social media. It’s not clear if either party attended their son’s birthday party. One guest who spoke with the publication revealed that Andrew’s brothers and Anne weren’t there, but it still managed to be a good party.

This week in Thailand, The Duke of York visited HRH Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn, the Princess Debaratanarajasuda, sister of King Maha Vajiralongkorn, at the Sa Pathum Palace. In 2017, The Duke, on behalf of The Queen, attended the funeral of Princess Sirindhorn’s father, King Bhumibol Adulyadej.
Reports claim that Bernie Ecclestone, the Formula 1 boss, was there as was Sir John Standing and also Guy Sangster. Liu Xiaoming, China’s UK ambassador, was also there. Sources claim that the party ended with a few games in the spirit of the royal family.
Andrew has denied his involvement with Jeffrey Epstein since the connection was first made. Moreover, the FBI purportedly wants to conduct an interview with the royal family member, but they haven’t been able to contact him.
As it was previously reported, Jeffrey Epstein hung himself in jail back in the summer of 2019, however, since his death, many conspiracy theories have suggested that he was killed due to his connections with the elite of many countries and nations, including politicians and celebrities. Prince Andrew was just one of them.
Some royal insiders have suggested that Prince Andrew’s involvement with Jeffrey played a role in Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s exit from the family.
