Prince Andrew is keeping an eye on Harry and Meghan’s life in America as he plans a new untitled career
- Andrew wants to ‘forge a new career’ and is interested in ‘business and charity’
- He’s been “keeping tabs on” Harry and Meghan’s life in the US in search of ideas.
- Insiders say he’ll shy away from Netflix-style projects, unlike the Sussexes
Prince Andrew has been “keeping an eye on” Harry and Meghan’s life in the US while he ponders his next career, it has been revealed.
The Duke of York, 62, was stripped of his royal titles and roles last year but insiders claim he is “less concerned” about the situation than people realise.
A source close to Andrew told The Sun that he has been following the Sussexes’ journey “very, very closely” as he ponders ways to “build a new career”.
The disgraced duke is believed to be planning a comeback that will restore his tarnished reputation. He is also reportedly considering legal action against his sex abuse accuser, Virginia Giuffre.

A source closed to Andrew claims he’s been following Harry and Meghan’s (pictured in 2017) journey “very, very closely” as he ponders ways to “forge a new career.”

Andrew is apparently impressed at how Harry and Meghan managed to “establish a new working life away from the royal family” in California.
The insider claimed he’s “very interested” in “business and charity” but would shy away from Netflix-style projects, unlike his nephew.
The king is also reportedly assembling his own team. He is understood to have recently lost his two-year communications officer.
Web has emailed Andrew’s representative for comment.
Andrew’s alleged attempt at making a living in America follows reports that his lawyers are taking steps to disclose legal documents involving Ms Giuffre in hopes it will “destroy” her story and restore his reputation.
The Duke of York paid Ms Giuffre an estimated £12million settlement after she claimed he had sex with her when she was 17, which he denies.
His legal team have asked for access to documents from a legal battle between Ms Giuffre, 39, and US attorney Alan Dershowitz, whom she previously accused of abuse but later admitted she had made a mistake, the Sunday Times reported.
The prince was stripped of all royal duties and his military titles in the aftermath of his 2019 BBC Newsnight interview, in which he expressed no regrets over his friendships with Ghislaine Maxwell and convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.

He has insisted Ms Giuffre’s claim of a sexual encounter in 2001 “did not take place” and questioned the validity of a photograph of the two taken at Maxwell’s Mews home.
Royal analysts believe the Queen has left him a sizeable inheritance and this has given him reassurance – should he wish – to pursue the legal challenge against Ms Giuffre.
Others suggest Andrew, recently branded as one of the most disliked royals, may be writing a memoir to try to clear his name after consistently denying Ms Giuffre’s allegations.
The Duke recently claimed to friends that a “mysterious development” will restore his disgraced reputation in the coming months.
