Despite the Queen’s support for Andrew, palace aides were reportedly unwelcome to the idea of Andrew resurrecting his titles because they knew the public would likely surprise or shock the public – especially after the settlement.
A plan to test support for Andrew was stopped and any prospect of another plan was nullified by the Queen’s death, according to the Telegraph.
King Charles is also said to be unlikely to support the revival of his titles because it could suggest Andrew is back in the royal fold and as a result threaten the Royal Family’s reputation.
However, he is thought to be supportive of the Duke of York – who he knows is ostracised and lacking purpose – and has held talks in recent weeks.
