The news comes after Andrew’s former role of Colonel of the Grenadier Guards was given to King Charles’ wife, Queen Consort Camilla, earlier this week.
A source told The Sun newspaper: “Any presence at the Palace is officially over.
Former Home Office minister Norman Baker said of the decision: “Armed protection has always been a status symbol for the likes of Prince Andrew.
“Of course he should pay it himself and not burden the taxpayer because he is a private individual and carries out no public duties.”.
However, Andrew – who will join his brother Charles, his own ex-wife Sarah Ferguson, and other members of the family for Christmas at Sandringham – is believed to be retaining his Royal Lodge home on the Windsor estate. »
