THE Queen has been inducted into the racing Hall of Fame for her ‘lifelong commitment’ to the sport – amid family meetings over Andrew’s desperate desire to return to public life.

The new honour comes on the back of her best year on the track, with more than £535,000 in earnings from her 33 wins on the Flat to date.

She is a regular at Royal Ascot and the Epsom Derby – with a trip with other members of the Royal Family already confirmed for next year.

But the honour has come at the end of another “annus horribilis” for Her Majesty following the death of her beloved husband Philip and the continued legal woes of her reported favourite son Andrew.

The prince has reportedly become “isolated” from the rest of the family as he is the “only person in the world clinging” on to the idea he can return to public life.

Read our Royal Family live blog below for the latest updates…

  • Andrew still faces prosecution in US over ‘sex case’

    PRINCE Andrew will still face prosecution in the US over Virginia Roberts’ sexual abuse claims despite the Met Police dropping the case.

    The force announced they were taking “no further action” after carrying out two reviews into claims made against the Duke of York.

    But although UK cops have now terminated their investigations into allegations made against him and Epstein, Andrew still has to face the music stateside.

    Virginia Roberts is attempting to sue the royal in a New York court after alleging that she was forced to have sex with him three times when she was 17.

    Andrew has vehemently denied the allegations – which have been examined by the Met on at least two previous occasions.

  • Where has Prince Andrew been lately?

    Prince Andrew spent most of August and September hiding from US lawyers at Balmoral, with the Queen.

    And it was reported yesterday that Prince William was “no fan” of Andrew, 61, who is facing a US sex abuse lawsuit.

    The Sun on Sunday revealed Andrew’s siblings Charles, Anne and Edward met nine months ago to agree there is no way back for him.

    It is also claimed the Met Police have spoken to Andrew’s accuser Virginia Roberts Giuffre.

    The duke denies her claims.

  • Andrew could still have to pay millions in ‘damages’ says legal experts

    The Duke of York could have to stump up millions in damages if a US jury finds he is liable, according to legal experts.

    If the court ruled in Roberts’ favour, it could see Andrew become the focus of a US criminal investigation linked to the accusations, Nick Goldstone, head of dispute resolution at international law firm Ince, said.

    US authorities could take “greater interest” into his alleged activity and pursue him for the alleged crimes.

  • Harry & Meg not returning ‘a great shame’

    A spokeswoman for the Sussexes confirmed on Saturday that the Duke would not be in attendance.

    And experts have said it will further harm the already strained relations between Harry, 37, and his brother William, 39.

    Royal expert and author Penny Junor said: “It is a great shame they are not coming. 

    “The longer they stay away the greater the rift and the more difficult it is to come back from.  They don’t come back and the rift continues. 

    “There is a lot of work to be done, it’s a shame they can’t come back. It shows they are not interested in making things work.”

  • Will George ever be King?

    The Royal Family “may never see Prince George become King”.

    Royal commentator Daniela Elser has pinpointed how the turmoil facing the Firm didn’t make a “pretty picture” for its future.

    Speaking about the change that will happen in the coming years as the Queen’s reign ends, she said: “When that mournful day comes, we might not be only saying goodbye to a truly iconic figure but farewelling the last and final Queen of the UK.

    “It will be up to her son, grandson and great-grandson what comes next; they will be fighting for nothing short of survival.”

  • Where is Prince Andrew in the line of succession?

    Prince Andrew is never likely to become king.

    He is currently NINTH in line to the throne behind Lilibeth – who was born in June – who is the granddaughter of future king Charles.

    But for 20 years between his birth and the birth of Prince William he was second in line. He was the first child born to a reigning monarch in over a century as Prince Charles and Princess Anne were born before Elizabeth came to the throne.

    Due to a law in place at the time where boys had precedence over girls Andrew pushed down his big sister Anne who had previously been second in line. That law was abolished in 2013 with Princess Charlotte being the first daughter not to be displaced by the birth of her little brother.

  • Andrew banned from lavish banquet with Charles & senior royals in fresh snub

    Prince Andrew was banned from a lavish banquet with Charles and senior royals in a fresh snub.

    The duke secretly attended a conference with Army colonels but was banished from dinner.

    Palace insiders confirmed Andrew was not allowed to represent the Grenadier Guards and asked to leave before the dinner and attended the conference privately.

    A source told us: “He sat at the back of the room. And was not allowed to dine with his brother.

    “It is quite a fall from grace.”

    A Clarence House spokesman said: “The Grenadier Guards were represented by the Regional Lieutenant-Colonel, who is Lieutenant-General Roland Walker.”

  • ‘Isolated’ Andrew ‘clinging on to public life return’

    The Duke of York is said to be ‘isolated form the Royal Family – and is the “only person in the world clinging” to the idea that he could return to public life, an expert has claimed.

    It comes as Virginia Roberts is attempting to sue the royal in a New York court after alleging that she was forced to have sex with him three times when she was 17.

    Royal editor Russel Myers has said he believes that the firm are “closing ranks” on the Duke of York, as they are afraid he will damage the family’s reputation further.

    Speaking on Lorraine earlier today, Mr Myers said: “I think he is the only person in the entire world at the moment who is clinging to the aspect that he could return.”

    He added: “It does seem they’re closing ranks together on him and he’s become quite isolated.”

  • Style it out

    MEGHAN Markle was seen making visits to the estate of a beauty marketing firm executive in a hint she may be about to launch her own cosmetic line.

    Meghan, 40, reportedly made visits to Guthy-Renker co-founder Bill Guthy’s home in Carpinteria, California, with husband Prince Harry, 37, and her mum Doria several times between February and March.

    Harry and Meghan had also flown on a private jet owned by the cosmetics firm during a tour of New York City, the Daily Mail reported

    There has since been speculation that Meghan could be about to launch her own cosmetics line – following in the footsteps of supermodel Cindy Crawford, Jennifer Lopez and Heidi Klum.

    The Sussexes were seen driving from Mr Guthy’s estate with Meghan beside him and her mum Doria Ragland in the backseat on March 1.

  • ‘No surprise’

    PRINCE Andrew grins while driving his Range Rover as cops dropped a sex claim probe against him without speaking to his accuser.

    Scotland Yard is taking no further action into allegations lodged in a US lawsuit, including “rape in the first degree”.

    The Duke of York strongly refutes the claims made by alleged victim ­Virginia Roberts Giuffre.

    And his friends last night brazenly said it was “no surprise” the Met had dropped its review into sex abuse allegations for a third time.

    Cops contacted Andrew’s £1,000-an-hour legal team after Met chief Dame Cressida Dick asked officers to review the case in August.

    It is not known if they spoke to Andrew. But The Sun understands the Met did not quiz 38-year-old Ms Giuffre, now living in Australia.

  • ‘It could be a disaster’ (Continued…)

    Attorney Andrew B. Brettler says the accuser had entered into a “settlement agreement” that would end her current claim against the prince.

    But Ms Levin said: “That’s a dead end as well.

    “It’s just not going to go away.”

    She said the suit is affecting the Royal Family “very badly” – and no matter what the outcome, the damage to Andrew’s reputation will be “permanent”.

    “Here’s the prince, the second son of Her Majesty, and he’s just going on and on and pretending in his rather pompous way he’s above all this nonsense,” she said.

    Despite a series of PR catastrophes in recent years, Andrew was reportedly so confident the case would collapse that he was plotting a return to the royal frontline.

    One source said: “There has been a dramatic shift in mood and the reality that this could not only go on for many months, if not years, as well as costing potentially millions of pounds is very real.”

  • Prince Andrew faces ‘disaster’

    The Duke of York’s “car crash” Newsnight interview – in which he bizarrely claimed he doesn’t sweat – should warn him off giving evidence, Angela Levin says.

    Writer Ms Levin, who has penned an authorised biography of Prince Harry, says Andrew had just three options to explore ahead of the civil case.

    Speaking on talkRADIO this morning, Ms Levin said: “One was to ignore it, pretend it didn’t happen, he didn’t know anything about it.

    “We’ve seen that hasn’t worked – it hasn’t gone away. He thought it would all disappear into the night. It hasn’t.

    “The second one was to go to America and answer all the questions and nit-pick apart the accusations, which is quite dangerous.

    “Remember how he was on Newsnight and then think of him on the stand, giving evidence.

    “I think it would be a disaster for him.

    “The third one is to try to worm out the fact that his accuser doesn’t have a case.”

  • Third wheeling

    Diana is the third wheel in Harry and Meghan’s marriage, claims a royal biographer.

    Andrew Morton, author of the bombshell biography Diana: In Her Own Words, has said that for both Harry and Meghan, “all roads lead back to Diana” and “every camera click and whirr” reminds them of their “terrible fate”.

    He continued to say that: “As the Sussexes embarked on their own journey together through Royal life, not a day went by without a reference, a memory or a decision that related in some way to Harry’s late mother. Diana was the third wheel in their marriage.”

  • Who was Princess Margaret?

    HRH Princess Margaret was born on August 21, 1930, at Glamis Castle in Scotland, to King George VI and Queen Elizabeth.

    She was the younger sister and only sibling of Queen Elizabeth II.

    For several days the registration of the princess’ birth was deliberately delayed in order to avoid her being numbered 13 and associated with its ‘unlucky’ connotations.

    In 1936 Princess Margaret’s world was turned upside down when her uncle King Edward VIII abdicated to marry divorcee, Wallis Simpson.

    It meant her father, a reluctant Prince George, would become King and that her sister Elizabeth was now the country’s future Queen.

    At the tender age of six, Margaret was second in line to the British throne.

  • Who is Prince Michael of Kent’s wife Princess Michael?

    Princess Michael of Kent, 75 – who was often called Princess Pushy – is married to the Queen’s paternal cousin Prince Michael of Kent.

    She is a member of the British Royal Family of German, Austrian, and Hungarian descent, who was born in Karlsbad, Germany, which is now located in Czechia. 

    Born in 1945, her father – who was a Nazi party member – divorced from her mother a year later and she moved to Australia in 1950, where she was educated.

    She then headed to London to study History of Fine and Decorative Art.

    Princess Michael was an interior designer before becoming an author, who penned a number of books on European royalty.

    Prince Michael is a paternal first cousin of the Queen and the grandson of King George V and Queen Mary.

  • Winner at Windsor

    THE QUEEN has been inducted into Racing’s Hall of Fame after her most successful year ever.

    And next year’s Epsom Derby will form part of her Jubilee celebrations as she marks 70 years on the throne.

  • Met Police drops Prince Andrew investigation

    The Met Police has dropped its investigation into Prince Andrew and Jeffrey Epstein.

    The force said it had carried out two reviews into claims made by women that they had been allegedly abused by Andrew and Epstein but would take “no further action”.

    A Met Police spokesperson said: “The Metropolitan Police Service continues to liaise with other law enforcement agencies who lead the investigation into matters related to Jeffrey Epstein.

    “As a matter of procedure MPS officers reviewed a document released in August 2021 as part of a US civil action. This review has concluded and we are taking no further action.

    “We also reviewed information passed to us by a media organisation in June 2021. This review is complete and no further action will be taken.”

  • Harry and Meghan to miss COP26

    The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will skip the highly anticipated Glasgow climate event, while the Queen, Prince Charles, Camilla, William and Kate are all set to attend.

    The Royal announcement comes weeks after Harry and Meghan attended the star-studded Global ­Citizen Live concert in New York — dubbed “Wokestock” — which demanded tough new eco laws to halve US emissions by 2030.

    It also pressed the “wealthiest nations” to deliver on a £70billion-a-year pledge to help developing countries go green.
