Prince Charles has found himself in an awkward situation recently as he was questioned about his brother Prince Andrew at a royal engagement.


Prince Charles was recently at a royal engagement in the North-East of Scotland when he was assisting in the clean-up operation following Storm Arwen that devastated some parts of Scotland.

While in attendance at this event, the Prince was asked by a journalist if he could comment on the recent allegations against his brother. This event took place less than 24 hours after Buckingham Palace announced Prince Andrew has been stripped of military honors and his HRH title so it was unsurprising that the Prince pretended he hadn't heard the question.

A clip of this incident was caught by Sky News who captioned the video, "Charles is seen in public for the first time since news broke of Andrew's military roles being given up as well as the title HRH. The heir to the throne chose not to respond to a question about his brother while on a walk in Scotland."

In the clip, the journalist asks, "Your Royal Highness can I ask your view on your brother's position, Prince Andrew?"

The reporter went to ask another question but Prince Charles continued to ignore him and instead continued with his royal duties.

Reportedly, the Queen, Prince Charles, and Prince William are 'absolutely furious' with Prince Andrew for 'bringing the Royal Family into disrepute' with his alleged behavior. 

Some have even suggested that Prince Andrew has no way back to royal life as the royal family is unwilling to forgive the Prince's actions that reflect on the whole family.

Although Prince Andrew has now been stripped of his titles and royal patronages his ex-wife Sarah Ferguson will retain her Duchess title

Prince Andrew's daughters, Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice, will also retain their titles and their place in the royal line of succession.
