PRINCE ANDREW BOOED…
PRINCE Andrew was seen laughing as he left King Charles’ coronation in ceremonial robes after being booed by crowds. The disgraced Duke was relegated to the bench for his brother’s grand crowning today.
However, Prince Harry was spotted wearing a suit as he arrived for the ceremony. Harry – wearing a dark morning suit and medals – attended the coronation ceremony at Westminster Abbey without wife Meghan, 41, or children Archie, who turned four today, and Lilibet, one.
And he sat in the third row – back behind his brother William as he is no longer a working royal.
And similarly, Prince Andrew was seated amongst the crowd for the coronation – taking a backseat.
He had earlier been driven down The Mall in a state car towards Westminster Abbey, with members of the crowd in a grandstand in front of Buckingham Palace booing as he went past.
Prince Andrew, 63, and squabbling California-based Prince Harry, 38, were among royals who took a back-seat as they arrived.
Neither have a ceremonial role and will not appear in the carriages or processions.
Despite the snub, Harry and Andrew sat inside the Abbey with other members of the Royal Family.
Harry was spotted sitting in the third row next to Princess Eugenie‘s husband Jack Brooksbank.
On his other side was Princess Alexandra, 86 — Queen Elizabeth’s cousin.
The Duke of York, who was also in the third row, was spotted laughing heartily as he left the ceremony.
Last June, Andrew did not appear alongside senior members of the family at the annual Order of the Garter ceremony at Windsor Castle despite being a Knight of the Garter.
It comes as…
Andrew was engulfed in a sex scandal with Virginia Roberts that rocked the royal family.
In 2019, Virginia has claimed that she had sex with Prince Andrew in a toilet when she was 17, after a night where he had allegedly been plying her with vodka in a posh London club.
The royal has vehemently denied the accusations against him, branding them “false” and “without foundation”.
On February 15, 2022, it was announced that Prince Andrew settled the lawsuit – sparing him a humiliating court battle.
Charles waved to thousands of cheering royal fans today as he was driven into Buckingham Palace before his landmark crowning.
His Majesty was joined by his family and world leaders at Westminster Abbey as he pledged his life to the country.
The monarch made the solemn oath alongside Queen Camilla in a service attended by world leaders, celebs and royals.
