King Charles 'displeased' by Anne and Edward holding shooting party with disgraced Andrew days before His Maj's birthday | The Sun

KING Charles was left "displeased" after Princess Anne and Prince Edward held a shooting party with disgraced Prince Andrew, reports claim.

The royal siblings had gathered at Windsor last Saturday two days before His Majesty's 74th birthday.

King Charles was keen to distance himself from the gathering – and was left fuming that Andrew attended, the Mail on Sunday reports.

A source said: "King Charles was said to be displeased that Edward and Anne had been publicly meeting up with Andrew and wanted it made clear that he had not been part of the shoot.

"Anne and Edward had been privately concerned about Andrew and wanted to check on him.

"But Charles’s view is that he should not be in the public eye. His Majesty was not thrilled at all."

Andrew and the Monarch's relationship has remained frosty since they had a tense chat about the former's future within the Firm.

The Duke of York was left "utterly bereft" when told by his brother, then Prince Charles, he would not be welcomed back to royal duties.

He was reportedly left so "blindsided" by the meeting because aides had vowed to "get him back to work" despite his links to convicted paedophile Jeffrey Epstein.

His misguided belief continued after he paid a multi-million pound sum to Virginia Giuffre, who claimed he had sex with her when she was 17.

Andrew vehemently denied the allegations but was still stripped of his patronages and beloved military affiliations.

He is now said to be in "bad shape" and at a loss over how to spend his life.

The royal is often pictured riding alone in Windsor where he lives with ex-wife Sarah Ferguson.

Andrew is also understood to see his grandchildren and enjoys watching the cricket and golf.

It is understood he will be received by the King at Sandringham for Christmas – Charles' first as Monarch.

But Andrew will not be included in the Royal Family’s annual walk to St Mary Magdalene Church.
