The new King of the United Kingdom, after Queen Elizabeth II passes away, will be Prince Charles. Queen Elizabeth II rules in a certain way, so it is normal that there will be some changes when her son comes to the throne. And the biggest changes will be regarding some members of the royal family. Those members don’t fit Prince Charles’ plans, and one of those people is his own brother, Prince Andrew.
There are rumors that Prince Charles wants to slim down the monarchy. And that means that he will be cutting off some of the members of the royal family. Maybe it’s normal for him to want a smaller monarchy, but it is strange that he wants to cut off his own brother. But the brothers are not on good terms for a long period of time now, so maybe it’s not that strange. If you want to know more about the relationship between the brothers and who else will be cut off from the royal family, keep reading.
The relationship between Prince Charles and Prince Andrew
You know that the relationship between the brothers, Prince William and Prince Harry was almost always great, but the relationship between brothers, Prince Charles and Prince Andrew was not. Sometimes it seems that the two of them don’t even speak the same language. They’ve had many misunderstandings in the past and still have now.

Why is that the case? Maybe because Prince Andrew was always jealous of Prince Charles because he is the one that will inherit the throne. And maybe because Prince Charles never liked the behavior of Prince Andrew, his non-stop partying, and the numerous nicknames he earned over the years, like “Randy Andy” or “Air Miles Andy”.
Maybe you remember and maybe you don’t, but there was a big scandal with Prince Andrew in 2015. This “sex-slave” scandal caused a big gap between the brothers. Andrew, of course, denied all the accusations, and he was furious that Charles didn’t support him. And on the other hand, Charles was furious because of the whole situation, and the was concerned about how that story affected the monarchy and the royal family.
Is Prince Charles trying to cut Prince Andrew out of the family?
This rumor was recently discussed in a documentary, called “The Royal Family at War”. In the documentary royal insiders said that Prince Charles doesn’t approve the behavior of his brother, Andrew. And that he thinks that his scandals and his friendship with some shady billionaire are a disgrace to the royal family. Charles thinks that Andrew’s behavior and the enormous travel bill will damage the so-called family firm. It’s an embarrassment to the family and a very big liability. There is no place for a playboy in the royal family.
And if this happens, Prince Andrew won’t be the only one who gets cut out
Not only Prince Andrew will be cut out from the royal family, but his daughters will also be too, Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice. The plan is that only his close family will be funded by taxpayers, which sounds pretty fair to the taxpayers. And that doesn’t include Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice. These rumors were heard by Prince Andrew, so he requested from his mother, Queen Elizabeth, that his daughters receive full-time royal duties. And he also wants to have a greater role for him and his daughters, when his mother and father die.
Prince Charles doesn’t agree with that, and it is possible that he will not give any role within the royal family to his brother and his daughters.
