Prince Andrew sex scandal has made life ‘easier’ for Beatrice and Eugenie
Prince Andrew’s involvement in a scandal has made things “easier” for his daughters, Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie, as it settles the dispute over their royal future.
This week, the Duke of York took center stage, accompanying the Queen to Prince Philip’s memorial service at Westminster Abbey. Andrew accompanied his mother from Windsor Castle and helped her enter the church through a side door to reduce the amount of walking for the 95-year-old monarch.

The Dean of Westminster, the Very Reverend Dr David Hoyle, was to show Her Majesty to her seat, while Andrew was to stroll home with his daughters Beatrice and Eugenie and their husbands. Andrew, on the other hand, took the initiative to accompany his mother to and from the front of the church, taking a front row seat himself.
It was his first public appearance since the settlement of the civil sexual assault case against him in the United States.
Virginia Giuffre has accused the Duke of sexually assaulting her when she was 17 in 2001, charges Andrew angrily refuted on several occasions.
After a New York judge denied Andrew’s requests for the case to be dismissed, signaling that it should go to trial, the parties reached an out-of-court settlement.
