The source added: "When it comes to any public role for his brother, there is no way back. There has always been an agreement that Andrew would be permitted to attend private and family events, as is his right. But not public or official ones. That has not changed."

Per reports from The Telegraph, King Charles is also making arrangements to cease covering his younger brother's home security expenses at the Royal Lodge.

The extensive list of searched terms included various keywords such as "Prince," "Andrew," "Duke," "York," "Royal, " "underage," "massage," "slave," "sex," "nipple," and "dildo" related to Andrew, Epstein and their associates.
