PRINCE Andrew has been spotted leading the royal family at a memorial service despite no longer being a working royal.

On Tuesday, numerous members of the royal family were due to attend a thanksgiving service for the life of King Constantine II of Greece.

The Greek king died in January 2023 and was the godfather of Prince William.

However, William pulled out of the event at the last minute due to a “personal matter”.

While Camilla was named as leading the royal party at the service at St George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle, footage shows Prince Andrew at the head of the pack leading ex-wife Sarah Ferguson, daughters Beatrice and Eugenie, Princess Anne and other royals into the venue.

It has since been clarified that Andrew was invited to attend by the Greek family and will not return to public duties.

Still, Andrew’s attendance at the public event has caused anger in some quarters.

The CEO of anti-monarchy campaign group Republic, Graham Smith, wrote on X/Twitter: “Prince Andrew back at an official engagement, rather than visiting a police station.

“The Greek family who invited him obviously have no qualms about inviting a man facing such serious accusations.

“And for the record, they haven't been a royal family since 1973.”

Photographs of Andrew smiling as he walked into the venue also attracted backlash from people on social media.

One said: “Prince Andrew leading the royals into church basically stepping in for Prince William.

“So much for keeping a low profile”.

While another said: “I’d be laughing too living off the long suffering taxpayers expense”.

Prince Andrew stepped down from public duties in 2019 after a disastrous BBC interview during which he was questioned about his association with paedophile and financier Jeffrey Epstein.
