Prince Andrew continues to offer support and maintain a close bond with King Charles as the monarch in his battle with cancer.

The Duke of York is paying regular visits to King Charles in a bid to ‘boost’ him according to royal author Angela Levin.

Andrew was seen on Easter Sunday at St George’s Chapel in Windsor as he made a surprise appearance at the King’s first public appearance since his diagnosis.

Speaking on GBN America, Levin said it is a sign of the family ‘sticking together’ during a tough time.

“We all saw him going down for Christmas at the church in Windsor”, she said.

“We have to have the difference between a working royal and a part of the family.

“King Charles believes that the family needs to stick together.

“He has actually visited Charles many times and tried to boost him and be kind and nice. So I don’t think you can say, ‘now you can’t come to church’.

“I think that’s what people are thinking. He didn’t go over to shake hands with the many people who were there that may have taken their hands away, well they might or might not.”

Speaking on Andrew ‘going first’ at the service as the royals arrived at the chapel, Levin said this is because the Duke of York was deemed the ‘least important’.

“I think that’s the rules with the Royal Family”, he said.

“The least important goes first and the most important, the King and Queen, go last, so he went first.

“So in an ironic way, they think of him as the lowest one as he’s leading them into church.”

It comes ahead of a brand new Netflix production dramatising Andrew’s explosive BBC Newsnight interview in 2019.

‘Scoop’ will shed a light on Andrew’s decision to address his friendship with convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.

The interview was widely regarded as a ‘car crash’ and has resulted in damage to the Duke’s reputation, but he has always denied any wrongdoing.
