Prince Andrew’s announcement that he is to take a step back from royal duties, after his disastrous interview with me about his friendship with convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein has been the work of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s advantage, according to the office of Prince Charles’ biographer, Robert Jobson.

It is the opinion of Prince Andrew’s “early retirement” into a “new direction” for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

“I think that as a member of the royal family, there will effectively be retired early, Harry and Meghan don’t want to be a part of [the] whole show… there is a path in front of them right now,” he said recently at the Heirpod podcast.

“As she said to Charles when he is king, ‘Look, we don’t really see ourselves in this role, we wanted to create a different kind of role, I think he’s flexible in that,” he continued. “There’s no pressure, and they are now In the area of defining who they are and what they want-when they want to spend most of their time in the states or somewhere else, I don’t see that as a problem.”

The family dynamic will naturally shift when Prince Charles ascends to the throne, and Jobson, he will focus more on William’s family.

“I think Prince Charles would have to be flexible, because its core focus is on William and his family, and Meghan and Harry, are further down the totem pole,” he said.

The announcement was made only a few days before, Prince Andrew replied that he would go on to “step back” from the kingdom of life.

“It’s become clear to me in the last couple of days, and that the circumstances with respect to my former association with Jeffrey Epstein have been a cause for serious concern from my family, work, and the valuable work going on in many of the organizations and charities that I am proud to support,” according to a statement on the royal family’s Twitter account.

“That’s why I asked, your Majesty, if I may step back from public duties, in the not too distant future, and she has given her consent,” he said.

The statement concluded: “I was unequivocally sorry for my ill-judged association with Jeffrey Epstein. His suicide has left a lot of unanswered questions, in particular, are the victims of it, and I deeply sympathize with everyone who is involved in it and want to have some form of closure. I can only hope that, in time, they will be able to rebuild their lives. Of course, I’m willing to help out for a proper law enforcement agency with their investigation, if necessary.”
