Prince Andrew Still Receives $335K From Queen Elizabeth Per Year, Works As Fixer For The Rich
Prince Andrew continues to maintain a lavish lifestyle even after he stepped down from his royal duties.
In its January 18 issue, National Enquirer claimed that Prince Andrew has sources of income that he hasn’t disclosed to the public.
A source alleged that one of the things that the Duke of York does is to work as a fixer for the rich and famous.
After building relationships with wealthy businessmen, Prince Andrew teams up with them in his business ventures.
The tabloid also claimed that an ongoing investigation revealed that Sarah Ferguson’s ex-husband has been secretly trading his blue blood roots to make huge sums of money from shady tycoons.
On top of this, Prince Andrew still receives $335,000 a year from Queen Elizabeth even though he no longer works as a senior royal.
“There is a mystery where Andrew’s money comes from. He still gets $335,000 annual allowance from the queen’s personal finances and a $26,000 naval pension but that’s a drop in the bucket for his jet-set lifestyle,” the source said.
The source added that Prince Andrew became wealthy a few years ago after he used his position as a British trade envoy to kickstart some successful businesses.
And after his role as a British trade envoy ended in 2011, Prince Andrew started engaging inside jobs.
However, one should take the tabloid’s claims with a grain of salt.
Since they said that no one knows where Prince Andrew’s money is coming from, even the tabloid doesn’t know just how rich he is.
It is evident that they are just speculating on Prince Andrew’s sources of income and business.
The tabloid was also unable to provide concrete proof regarding Prince Andrew’s business dealings, so it’s best to tread carefully when reading the tabloid’s allegations.
Meanwhile, Prince Andrew also made headlines today amid reports that Princess Eugenie has moved in with him and Ferguson again.
In the latest episode of the Heir Pod podcast, Finding Freedom author Omid Scobie revealed that Princess Eugenie is currently residing at the Royal Lodge in Windsor.
Prior to the move, Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank lived at Frogmore Cottage for six weeks.
According to reports, they made a secret deal with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to rent out the property.
But after just six weeks, the royal couple decided to leave Frogmore Cottage and move into their old house.
