Prince Andrew has reportedly been booted out of the posh Buckingham Palace apartment on the directives of King Charles, a news report has stated. According to The Sun, the disgraced Duke of York “was told he can no longer use his suite of rooms”.
He has already been forced to close the office there.
The report claimed that all his treasured possessions have been moved out while the renovation takes place.
It comes nearly a year after Andrew’s £12million payout to Virginia Giuffre, whose claims of sexual abuse left his reputation in tatters.
A source told the publication: “The King has made it clear that Buckingham Palace is no place for Prince Andrew.
“First his office closed last year and now his sleeping quarters.
“Andrew loved having a suite at Buckingham Palace where he not only set up for marital life with Sarah Ferguson but used it as a bachelor’s pad after his divorce.
“He brought back a string of new girlfriends to his home in the Palace – even model Caprice. A bachelor’s flat in St James’s Palace doesn’t have the same allure for a single man.”
The Palace is undergoing a £369million rebuilding project over 10 years, which includes gutting and renovating Andrew’s suite, known as the Chamber Floor.

He later agreed a huge payout to settle a US lawsuit brought against him by Ms Giuffre.
The Sun revealed on Christmas Eve that he was forced to close his Palace office and told not to use it as an address.
The news report further claimed that discussions are underway to find him accommodation in London, possibly St James’s Palace.
He is expected to keep his 31-room Royal Lodge in Windsor, where he lives with ex-wife Sarah Ferguson.
He was photographed driving there yesterday.
Renovation work at Buckingham Palace is expected to be finished in 2027.
