It came as Prince Andrew reportedly refused to leave the £30million Royal Lodge and became an increasingly isolated figure, who ‘spends his days watching TV in a dark room” of the ruined residence.

A friend of King Charles claimed life at Royal Lodge would become “increasingly cold and uncomfortable” for Andrew if he refused to hand over the keys.

The friend told The Times: “The only question now is when he will realize that he has become a prisoner of his own pride – and that handing over the keys will bring him far greater comfort and the continued support of his family. »

In the latest episode of the popular Disney+ series, Prince William made an unexpected visit to Wrexham AFC club to see an old friend.

“Prince William is here in Wrexham today because it’s St David’s Day, which is obviously the Welsh national holiday,” explained Humphrey Ker, executive director of Wrexham AFC.

“Only we don’t have a day off on St. David’s Day, which is a bit complicated!”

St. David’s Day, celebrated on March 1, is a day of widespread Welsh pride. It was also the day William, 41, met Wrexham AFC co-chairman Rob McElhenney at The Turf pub to join in the festivities.

“As the Prince of Wales, Prince William has to come and squeeze flesh and kiss babies and do all that kind of business that princes do,” Ker said. “For us it’s great that Wrexham Football Club and Wrexham as a whole have become a place that members of the Royal Family put on their itinerary when they come to visit Wales.”

It emerged that William and Ker had both attended Ludgrove School and Eton College. The prince remarked “it’s been a long time” during their warm handshake.

“I went to school with Prince William. I’ve known him since I was 7 or something,” Humphrey confessed. “We literally shared a room from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m.”

“A royal family shakeup is needed” – PR expert

King Charles was urged to ‘shake up the royal family’ by a PR expert after ‘the loss of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’.

Publicist Haddy Folivi spoke exclusively to GB News, saying the royal family needed to make drastic changes.

He claimed: “The royal family definitely needs a shake-up.

“With King Charles somewhat limited in what he can do in terms of work, there isn’t much Prince William and the Queen can do.

“The royals will therefore have to dip into the reserves and recruit more royals so that we, the taxpayers, feel like we are getting value for money.”
