Prince Harry’s close friendship with his first cousin Princess Eugenie could be tested by the contents of his upcoming memoir, which is due to be published in 2022. Two royal experts questioned whether Harry and Meghan were going to “deal with the Prince Andrew question”, which they have both avoided commenting on so far. 

Royal expert Molly Mulshine claimed: “It’s interesting how close she is with Harry and Meghan and how close all of the Yorks are or seem to be with Harry and Meghan because I want to know when are Harry and Meghan gonna deal with the Andrew question.

“They have never talked about the allegations against Prince Andrew who is obviously Fergie’s ex-husband who she still lives with and co-parents with.

“This is something I really want to see how they navigate, especially with Harry’s upcoming memoir.

“That is going to be interesting – is he just going to ignore it, is he going to talk about it because it seems like those two families are very, very close compared especially to everyone else now.”

Prince Harry recently stayed with his cousin at Frogmore Cottage when he returned to the UK to unveil a statue in Princess Diana’s honour. 

Princess Eugenie, her husband Jack Brooksbank, and their 6-month-old baby August currently reside in the nine-bedroom residence, which was formerly the home of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. 

Harry stayed with the couple whilst isolating for several days after returning from California. 

The cousins have been close friends since childhood and during their twenties, were part of the same West London party set. Eugenie is close friends with both of Harry’s former girlfriends, Cressida Bonas and Chelsy Davy. 

So far, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have avoided commenting on the controversy surrounding Prince Andrew’s friendship with the disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein. 

The Duke of York became acquainted with the convicted sex offender in 1999, after being introduced through their mutual friend, Ghislaine Maxwell. 

Prince Andrew came under scrutiny in 2011 after images appeared of him in Central Park with Epstein, shortly after he had been released from custody.

Jeffrey Epstein had been sentenced to 18 months in 2008 after he was found guilty of procuring a person under 18 for prostitution and felony solicitation of prostitution. 

It later emerged that Prince Andrew had secured £15,000 from Epstein to assist his ex-wife Sarah Ferguson with her financial troubles. 

In 2019, Epstein was rearrested on charges of sex trafficking after a number of women accused him of grooming and sexual exploitation. He died in prison on August 10, 2019 in an apparent suicide. 

Ghislaine Maxwell is currently awaiting trial for her role in the enticement of minors and sex trafficking.

Public court documents named Prince Andrew and one victim claimed to have sexual content with the Prince on three occasions. 

This led the Duke to participate in a “no holds barred” interview with BBC Newsnight’s Emily Maitlis, which was described as a “car crash” and a “PR disaster”. 

He claimed to have “no recollection” of meeting the claimant and could not have been participating in sexual activity on that said day, as he was taking his daughter to Pizza Express in Woking. 

He also said he had “no regrets” over his friendship with Epstein but acknowledged that he should not have visited him in New York following his initial release from prison. 

The interview led to the Duke of York resigning from public office and standing down from all formal engagements. 

Buckingham Palace released a statement to say: “The Duke of York unequivocally regrets his ill-judged association with Jeffrey Epstein.

“Epstein’s suicide left many unanswered questions, particularly for his victims. The Duke deeply sympathises with those affected who want some form of closure.

“It is his hope that, in time, they will be able to rebuild their lives. The Duke is willing to help any appropriate law enforcement agency with their investigations, if required.

“The Duke has already stated that he did not see, witness, or suspect any behaviour of the sort that subsequently led to Jeffrey Epstein’s arrest and conviction. He deplores the exploitation of any human being and would not condone, participate in, or encourage any such behaviour.”
