Royal fans urge Jubilee boycott as Prince Andrew set for appearance with Queen

Royal fans have reacted with fury at the news that Prince Andrew is set to appear at a major royal event alongside the Queen next month.

Some have even called for a "boycott" of Her Majesty's Platinum Jubilee celebrations, which are set to commence on June 2.

On Saturday, the Telegraph reported that Andrew will join his mother for the Garter Day ceremony at Windsor Castle on June 13.

He is said to be attending in a private capacity as a Royal Knight.

The Telegraph also claimed that Andrew will be listed in the Court Circular with his HRH title on the following day.

He supposedly gave that title up when he faced a civil sex abuse trial in New York back in February.

Taking to Twitter, one royal watcher slammed the news as a "disgrace", adding: "The British public needs to wise up and boycott the Queen's Jubilee."

Another asked angrily: "WHAT MESSAGE IS THE QUEEN SENDING TO VICTIMS OF EPSTEIN?"

A third said: "What does HM know that justifies PA attending this prestigious event? To the outside world, the optics are untenable…"

While a fourth fumed: "Looks like Andrew back for Garter Day. Next will be The Sussexes.

"Love our Queen dearly but this is putting me off big time! The others are just scroungers living in luxury off of the Royal name. They don’t deserve it."

Someone else claimed it was "time to end the monarchy in the UK" if the Royal Family were set on bringing Andrew back into the Firm.

In February, Andrew agreed a settlement with Virginia Giuffre – thought to be around £12million – after she accused him of sexually abusing her when she was 17.

The settlement was not an admission of guilt.

Following the news of Andrew's upcoming appearance, royal commentator Daniela Elser slammed the Queen as "positively mule-ish" for refusing to cast him from the Royal Family.
