service with his mother, the Queen, but skipped the 11 a.m. service and decided to stay at
Sandringham House with his father Prince Philip. According to palace sources, skipping the
11 a.m. service was a “personal decision” by Andrew who is still suffering from the
backlash from his BBC’s Newsnight interview. In the said interview, Andrew was asked about
his decision to keep his ties with convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein despite the latter’s
stint in jail. The prince said he did not entirely regret
his association with Epstein and also failed to express sympathy for victims of the late
billionaire. This sparked outrage from the public which
eventually forced to Andrew stepped down from his royal duties. Several companies also withdrew their support
to Andrew’s patronages. Prince Andrew’s scandal not only rocked the
royal family but also believed to have also affected the upcoming wedding of his eldest
daughter, Princess Beatrice. Reports indicated that Bea was forced to cancel
her engagement party due to her father’s controversy. The 31-year-old princess and her fiancé Edoardo
Mapelli Mozzi are expected to announce their wedding date after the Queen approved their
chosen date. The announcement is expected to happen in
the second week of January and the couple reportedly picked a date in early June 2020,
just before the Royal Ascots which is set to kick off on June 16 and will run through
June 20. Prince Andrew’s absence on the royal’s Christmas
Day church service is not the only one that is noticeable on the occasion. The recently hospitalized Prince Philip also
missed the service as well as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. The Duke of Edinburgh has been discharged
from the hospital on Christmas Ever but remained at Sandringham House. Harry and Meghan, on the other hand, reportedly
spent Christmas in Canada with the Suits actress’ mother.
