Is Prince Philip More Upset With Prince Harry Than His Disgraced Son?

Prince Philip is treating Prince Harry and Prince Andrew like they committed similar crimes, but the FBI disagrees.

  • In a new book, it was revealed that Prince Philip thinks Prince Harry is in “dereliction of duty.”
  • The Duke of Edinburgh believes his grandson is acting far beneath his station thanks to his move to the U.S. with Meghan Markle.
  • Why does Prince Phillip feel his grandson is in “dereliction,” but his son Prince Andrew — still wanted by the FBI for questioning in the Jeffrey Epstein case — once again just skates on by?

Prince Harry must be exhausted.

After fully repaying the cost of Frogmore Cottage’s renovations and getting a blockbuster Netflix deal, the younger Windsor is probably wondering why he’s the subject of a new report featuring his own grandfather. Prince Philip allegedly feels his grandson is in “dereliction of duty” now that he’s no longer a working member of the British royal family.

And, once again, the Duke of Sussex — like everyone else with sense — has to be wondering why there’s not nearly the same amount of embarrassment amongst the elder royals about the disgusting behavior of Prince Andrew.

According To A New Book, Prince Harry Is No Different Than Prince Andrew In Prince Philip’s Eyes

Prince Philip allegedly felt so ashamed of Prince Harry and his “dereliction of duty” that he detailed his woes to one Ingrid Seward, who turned around and wrote a book about it all (and the book will drop October 20th, in case anyone cares).

He has struggled greatly, for example, with what he sees as his grandson Harry’s dereliction of duty, giving up his homeland and everything he cared about for a life of self-centered celebrity in North America. [He] has found it hard to understand exactly what it was that made his grandson’s life so unbearable. As far as Philip was concerned, Harry and Meghan had everything going for them: a beautiful home, a healthy son, and a unique opportunity to make a global impact with their charity work.

Apparently, the Duke of Edinburgh never saw the ridiculous headlines that all but accused Meghan Markle of capital murder because she eats avocados. Nor does he see the continuing venom lobbed Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s way that continuously (and with no basis in fact) accuses Markle of being a social-climbing gold digger, mostly written by bitter British women with rotten crumpets that can’t get over the fact that “their Harry” didn’t choose them.

But Prince Andrew’s Actions Somehow Weren’t In “Dereliction Of Duty”?

Let’s once again be clear: Prince Harry did nothing wrong nor illegal by marrying Meghan Markle. It’s too bad that Penelope Brumsgrove & the rotten crumpet brigade doesn’t like it, but at this point, they’re going to have to accept the fact that “their Harry” is happily married with a child — and not to them.

Prince Andrew, on the other hand, did do something wrong. So much so that the FBI wants him in the United States for questioning about his ties to disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein — to which the Duke of York has insisted that he will not offer his cooperation. He explains it in greater detail in the video below.

Don’t think that the British public is cheering for Prince Andrew, either. They’re finally getting so disgusted with “Randy Andy” that protests against him have begun to mount outside Buckingham Palace.

And what’s Prince Philip’s answer to all of this? His poor, persecuted son made a “failure in judgment.” Allegedly raping little girls? Prince Philip apparently sees Andrew’s actions as “distasteful.” Refusing to cooperate with the FBI in a criminal investigation? Prince Philip sees that as “a tragedy.”

No, Your Majesty. What’s “distasteful” is that you have harsher words for Prince Harry — who committed no crime save for offending the rotten crumpet brigade — than you do for Prince Andrew. Even if Prince Harry had truly “gone Hollywood” and decided to fritter away the rest of his days chasing a fanciful dream of being an Oscar-winning actor, that is nowhere near as bad as Prince Andrew’s alleged illegal behavior. Anyone who suggests otherwise needs to ask themselves why they think this is so.
