Prince Andrew will refuse any efforts to get him out of his royal mansion despite new claims over his links with paedophile Jeffrey Epstein.


Prince Andrew 'vows to REFUSE efforts to get him out of royal mansion'

The Duke of York has reportedly vowed to fight any attempt made by King Charles to evict him from Royal Lodge, his ten-bedroom Windsor home since 2003, following the release of court documents detailing a slew of sexual assault allegations.


The King is said to want to remove his brother from his Berkshire residence and move him into the smaller Frogmore Cottage, which had belonged to Harry and Meghan before they left for the US.


But Andrew has so far refused requests by Charles to move and is not planning on letting up anytime soon, according to The Mirror.


A source close to Andrew told the newspaper: 'Andrew is going nowhere. The King can't force him out. He has a cast iron lease that he has absolutely every intention of honouring.'

The explosive documents have thrust the Duke of York's relationship with paedophile Jeffrey Epstein back into the spotlight with claims that the prince committed 'acts of sexual abuse' and took part in an 'underage orgy'.

Well-placed sources have told the Mail that while the court claims were not a surprise, they will have served to 'crystallise' King Charles's determination to solve the 'Andrew problem' decisively.


Plans were already in train to evict Andrew from Royal Lodge in keeping with his 'downgraded' status but it is understood the King will redouble his efforts to move his brother in the coming months.


The release of the court documents are believed to have also strengthened the King's resolve that his brother will never be allowed to resume Royal duties.


A source told the Mail: 'When it comes to any public role for his brother, there is no way back.


'There has always been an agreement that Andrew would be permitted to attend private and family events, as is his right. But not public or official ones. That has not changed.'


The Telegraph has also reported that Charles is preparing to stop paying for the Prince's home security at Royal Lodge as he tries to distance himself publicly from his younger brother,


It means Andrew will have to fund the multi-million pound security costs at Royal Lodge himself if he wants to stay in the 30-room mansion in Windsor Great Park.


It comes as the Prince was last night facing more humiliation after it was revealed that sex trafficker Ghislaine Maxwell was ordered to search her phone, computer and thousands of emails for his name along with the words 'sex toy' and 'erotic'. 


The documents revealed how Maxwell's lawyers were instructed to scour all her electronic devices for any mention of the Prince, other acquaintances of paedophile Jeffrey Epstein and a string of sordid words.


These included 'Prince', 'Andrew', 'Duke', York', 'Royal', 'underage', 'massage', 'slave', 'sex', 'nipple' and 'dildo', according to the devastating legal papers.


Details of the hugely embarrassing search – part of a 2015 defamation case brought by Andrew's accuser Virginia Giuffre, née Roberts, against Maxwell – are revealed in a trove of 130 documents, totalling more than 1,300 pages, which were released this weekend.


It is not known what the search uncovered, with Maxwell's lawyers claiming it was a 'wild goose chase'. The case was settled before it came to court.


Last night, a source close to the Duke of York told the MoS how Andrew had been left reeling by the lurid new claims.


'He doesn't have the emotional bandwidth to deal with this,' the source said. 'He has locked himself away in a room and has no idea how to respond. He's devastated.'


In another day of astonishing revelations on Saturday:


  • Scotland Yard was urged by a former chief superintendent to interview the personal protection officers who accompanied Prince Andrew on trips to meet Epstein
  • Epstein's 'house manager', Alfredo Rodriguez, was questioned under oath about whether Prince Andrew and Maxwell had 'a romantic relationship', legal files reveal;
  • Mr Rodriguez claimed that 'many' pictures of Epstein and Andrew posing together were displayed at Epstein's Florida mansion, where the financier abused hundreds of young girls;
  • King Charles is reportedly preparing to withdraw funding for security at his brother's 30-room Windsor mansion, Royal Lodge;
  • New emails reveal the panic that gripped Maxwell and her advisers after Andrew was first accused in court papers of abusing Giuffre;
  • Maxwell swam naked at Epstein's Caribbean island where his recruits were made to massage her while she was undressed, documents claim.
  • The furore surrounding Andrew, who is still eighth in line to the throne, shows no sign of abating after hundreds of documents were made public over three days.


The court files were sealed in 2017 but published after requests from media firms.
