How Princess Eugenie and Beatrice could attempt to restore Prince Andrew's reputation

NewsHow Princess Eugenie and Beatrice could attempt to restore Prince Andrew's reputation

Coram-James told Express.co.uk: “For the time being, Andrew’s best hope of having his image restored is through his children.

“Were they to be brought into the fold, they would be wise not to initially make any comments about their father. They would need to further cement their trust and reputation with the British public.

“But, once their popularity had taken solid roots, and perhaps after a few years, they could start to make casual references to their father.

“The occasional compliment about him in public ‘well, of course, our parents were so loving to us as children’, and ‘my hero is my father’ type thing… things that daughters can say about their fathers with impunity, simply because they are their fathers!”

He added: “Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice have managed to pull an absolute blinder. They have evaded every scandal that the royals have been plunged into over the past three years.

“Whereas it might be said William and Kate are Teflon, it could be said that Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie are seemingly blemish less, insofar as no one ever seems to have a bad word to say about them.

“This could be a huge asset to the royal family. They have high popularity ratings and, in all probability, these would be higher if the public got to know them better.”

Coram-James continued: “They have managed to walk through a life of intense scrutiny and never put a foot wrong in the process. They have never been caught out, and it would appear never been seen to do anything that could bring the royals into disrepute.

“They have also managed to walk the tightrope between remaining close both with the bulk of the Royal Family, and the Sussexes, with whom they have remained close.”

In 2019, Prince Andrew – who is the second son of the late Queen – stepped back from royal duties due to his association with convicted paedophile Jeffrey Epstein.

Four years prior, Virginia Roberts Giuffre claimed that she had been forced to have sex with Andrew when she was 17.

Prince Andrew has continually denied the allegations made against him. In 2022, an out-of-court settlement was reached with Giuffre. This was made as no admission of guilt.

Coram-James then went onto discuss Eugenie – who recently welcomed her second child – and Beatrice’s futures in the monarchy.

He stated that King Charles III would be “wise” to bring his two nieces more prominently into the Firm.

He added: “This [would] be a tremendous boon to the institution of royalty.”
