Prince Andrew is currently facing a lot of pressure to vacate his home in the Royal Lodge.
King Charles, his elder brother is said to want him out of his home and get him to move into the Frogmore cottage which Prince Harry and his family used to reside in.
However, the Duke of York is not having it, as he has decided to remain put in his home of over 20 years, even while extensive work is being carried out in the 30 rooms mansion.
New information has been brought to light that perhaps the late queen may have ensured Andrew keep his home.
Money inherited from the late monarch has made it possible for Andrew to foot the bills for the repairs needed in the Royal Lodge.
A source close to the royals, claims Andrew was left an enormous sum of his mother’s will, which has enabled him to pay for the upkeep of his home.
“There was money left to the family by the Queen,” the source said. “Details of the exact amounts and to whom will never be revealed because the papers have been sealed.”
“That’s where Andrew is getting the money from to repair Royal Lodge.”
“He’s been quite open about where the money has come from because he doesn’t want people to think he has come up with it through other means.”
Andrew bought a 75-year lease on the property in 2003, following the death of the Queen Mother in 2002.
King Charles is adamant to downsize his property portfolio and has urged Andrew to move into the Frogmore cottage.
This gives the Prince and Princess of Wales and their three children the avenue to move into the Royal Lodge, as their current Windsor residence is deemed too small for the family of five.
Prince Williams and Kate currently reside in Adelaide Cottage in Windsor, having moved from their apartment in Kensington Palace, London last October.
But the four-bedroom home has been deemed “unsuitable” for an extended stay as the young family requires more room.
The King has no authority to remove Andrew from Royal Lodge because it is owned by the Crown Estate, an arms-length property empire that makes money for the Government.
