After his involvement in the Jeffrey Epstein sex scandal, Prince Andrew has been barred from all royal duties.
Prince Charles recently accepted a crucial patronage from the disgraced royal.
The Prince of Wales has taken over as patron of ‘The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra,’ a role formerly filled by Andrew.
“The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra is delighted to announce that The Prince of Wales has accepted an invitation to become the Orchestra’s Patron,”
the group announced in a statement on Tuesday in a statement with no mention of Andrew.
“The Prince of Wales has a life-long association with the Arts. During the pandemic His Royal Highness spoke about the importance of protecting the Arts, stressing their enormous importance to life in the UK and to the economy,”
the statement added.
This is Charles’s second patronage from Andrew after he was expelled over his notorious relations with convicted sex abuser Jeffrey Epstein.
Last November, the heir to the throne succeeded him as patron of York Minister Cathedral.
