A royal expert has gone out and made a bold claim that Prince Andrew would have to be one of the worst royals a person could work for.
Back in October the Duke of York proudly walked his youngest daughter Princess Eugenie down the aisle on her wedding day to Jack Brooksbank.
The ceremony at St George’s Chapel in Windsor attracted media coverage all over the world, just like Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s nuptials in May.
However, following the big affair, there had been criticism surrounding the estimated AU$3.6 million cost to the taxpayer for the security bill, as well as reports that Prince Andrew wanted his daughter’s wedding to rival her cousin’s.
Royal biographer Duncan Larcombe speaks about the negativity surrounding the Duke of York and him being dubbed ‘Air Miles Andy’ for his extravagant use of the royal flight.
Previously speaking to Yahoo UK’s ‘The Royal Box,’ he said, “One of his old press secretaries once said to me that being the press officer for Prince Andrew is the worst job in the royal household, and that’s because he doesn’t listen.
“He will quite happily go to Switzerland to pick up an environmental award in a private jet.
“He’ll take the royal flight and run up a bill of over £100,000, in a royal helicopter, to play golf at St Andrews, it’s not rocket science.”
PR consultant Nick Ede thinks that Prince Andrew has to be careful about his messaging.
Ede says: “I think this wedding, hopefully from a PR point of view, will be really positive for the whole family.
“And the one thing about him is that we know he loves his kids, and he puts them number one first.”
But he’s not the only one to be labelled as hard to work with. Recently Meghan Markle has also been branded as “Duchess Difficult”.
The 37-year-old royal has come under a lot of heat in the past few weeks, after a number of her staff quit their jobs at Kensington Palace, reportedly due to her ‘diva demands’.
And now the Express claims that the Duchess of Sussex’ most trusted aides are calling out her behaviour, after she reportedly ordered St George’s chapel to be filled with air fresheners before her May wedding, due to its ‘musty odour’.
