EPHRAIM HARDCASTLE: Prince Andrew wants to improve the status of his daughters by asking the Queen to allow their future husbands to have earldoms While all of the Queen's children got to be HRH, only those grandchildren born to the monarch's sons do so. Thus, Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie – daughters of Prince Andrew – are HRHs but Peter and Zara, children of Princess Anne, are not. Now Andrew wants to improve the status of his daughters by persuading the Queen and her heir Prince Charles to allow their future husbands to have earldoms. 'Otherwise his daughters' children will be commoners, defined as one of the ordinary or common people, as opposed to the aristocracy or to royalty,' my source explains. Imagine!

Prince Andrew’s public role has often attracted controversy but his private life is even more intriguing

Prince Andrew
I can reveal the Queen’s second son has been holding secret talks at Buckingham Palace with Father Michael Seed, the celebrity priest who helped convert Tony Blair, former Tory minister Ann Widdecombe and the Duchess of Kent to Roman Catholicism. It seems unlikely that Andrew, whose mother is Supreme Governor of the Church of England, would consider going over to Rome, so what was Fr Michael doing at the Palace? ‘I really cannot make any comment as I am a priest,’ he tells me. Adding to the intrigue, the meetings were not recorded in the Court Circular, the official record of royal engagements. Fr Michael, who is one of Britain’s most prominent Catholic priests, hit the headlines five years ago when he admitted arranging papal knighthoods for wealthy businessmen for money. Papal knigh

Photograph: Christopher Furlong/Getty Images Prince Andrew acted as a broker for a Kazakh oligarch who wanted to buy a London home from the Queen’s estate, documents released under the Freedom of Information Act have revealed. The Duke of York’s office tried to secure a crown estate property near Kensington Palace for the oil and gas tycoon Timur Kulibayev at the same time as his marital home of Sunninghill Park was being sold to the billionaire for £3m over the asking price. The duke was a government trade envoy at the time of the attempted deal for Kulibayev, son-in-law of the Kazakh president, Nursultan Nazarbayev. Its emergence is likely to fuel calls for further i

was a family affair at Royal Ascot on Friday for Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson. The former married couple reunited at the prestigious event to hang out with their eldest daughter Princess Beatrice – and they looked like they were having a great time.

Resplendent in a flattering midnight blue ensemble, Sarah Ferguson showed her support for the Silent No More Gynaecological Cancer Fund and The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity's campaign at a ladies' lunch The Duchess of York, who showcased a trim new figure for the occasion, joined socialites and IT girls at the annual ladies' lunch in support of the charity campaign held at Fortnum & Mason last week. Sporting a healthy glow from her recent jaunt to France, the 55-year-old was in high spirits as she lent her support to the charity campaign. The perennially chic businesswoman and mother-of-two joined Astrid Harbord, Lauren Kemp, Tina Hobley, Amanda Wakeley and Mika Simmons at the event, which aims to raise awareness among young women about gynaecological cancer and the symptoms.

Her Majesty The Queen, Prince Andrew
It was the wedding present from the Queen that fell into rack and ruin And now, after being derelict for the past eight years, the much-derided 'Tesco-style' mansion Sunninghill Park, which became a symbol of the Duke of York's failed marriage to Sarah Ferguson, is being demolished. Teams of workmen were at the site last week and were spotted in cherry-pickers removing red clay tiles before bulldozers moved in. The operation had been delayed while alternative roosts were found for at least 100 bats which had been seen around the building and emerging from holes in the roof. The Berkshire mansion was given to Prince Andrew and his bride following their wedding in 1986. The property was dubbed South York by critics because of its resemblance to oil baron J R Ewing's tasteless ranch Sout...

Her Majesty The Queen, Prince Andrew, Prince George
Those red shorts! It's not just Prince George and his father Prince William who have worn them for royal outings. Here, on Queen Elizabeth's 39th birthday a little more than 50 years ago, a 5-year-old Prince Andrew is seen rocking a crimson pair as the family gathers at Frogmore House, Windsor, in April 1965. In the Queen's arms is her youngest child, Prince Edward, who had turned one a month earlier, while Andrew's older brother, and heir to throne, Prince Charles was 16. Princess Anne was 14. Also pictured is family patriarch Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, who was 43. Catherine Duchess of Cambridge recently dressed her son in shorts that echoed those of dad William at the same age. Some observers believe she keenly looks at former royal portraits and fashions and has been qui...
