KEY POINTS

  • Prince Andrew celebrated his 60th birthday with Sarah Ferguson and their friends
  • Prince Andrew's siblings did not attend his party in Windsor
  • Prince Andrew is rumored to have been dumped by his siblings 

Prince Andrew was reportedly dumped by his siblings on his 60th birthday.

According to New Idea, the Duke of York was snubbed by Prince Charles, Princess Anne, and Prince Edward who didn’t attend his party in Windsor. However, Sarah Ferguson was present at the bash.

“Neither of Andrew’s brothers was there, nor was Anne, but it was a wonderful party… A really good range of people,” the source told Daily Mail.

However, it is unlikely for Prince Charles, Princess Anne, and Prince Edward to have dumped their brother by not attending his birthday party. It is more likely that they were busy on the said date because of their personal or professional engagements.

Throughout the past couple of months, there have been rumors suggesting that Prince Charles is upset with Prince Andrew due to the latter’s involvement with Jeffrey Epstein. But the royal siblings managed to debunk the allegations when they stepped out in public to attending a church service on Christmas Day.

Princess Anne and Prince Edward have not released a statement regarding Prince Andrew’s sexual abuse case. But there hasn’t been any indication that the royal siblings are at odds with each other.

While they were growing up, Prince Andrew was reportedly distant and different from his siblings. During an interview on “Good Morning Britain,” Princess Diana’s former royal butler, Paul Burrell, described the Duke of York as someone who is quite solitary.

“He doesn’t mix with his siblings very much, only on public occasions. He is out on his own,” Burrell said.

According to Burrell, Prince Andrew and his siblings didn’t also grow up communicating with their parents, Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip. So, when they got older, they also grew up to be independent individuals.

But Princess Anne previously denied the claims that the Queen was a distant mother. She said that there hasn’t been any indication that suggests the monarch wasn’t caring for her four children.
