PRINCE Andrew is still at Balmoral despite the birth of his daughter Princess Beatrice’s first child, according to reports.

Andrew’s daughter Beatrice gave birth on Saturday, a few months on from her younger sister Eugenie’s baby son being born.

Sarah, Duchess of York – Andrew’s ex-wife – had been with Andrew at the royal family’s Scottish residence, but left at the weekend to be with Beatrice and her new granddaughter.

Andrew has been at the Aberdeenshire residence for a few weeks, leaving for the estate days before the first hearing into the sex assault claim brought against him by Virginia Roberts Giuffre. Andrew vehemently denies the allegations.

The National:

Last night Giuffre’s legal team claimed that the duke had been served with the lawsuit, with the paperwork delivered to his lawyer in the US.

Her lawyers said earlier this month the duke had officially been served, but his legal team disputed the claim.

One source told The Sun that they didn’t know when Andrew would be coming back to Windsor.

“Andrew has made it quite clear that he wasn't leaving Balmoral,” they said. “It would appear the advice to him was to stay in hiding and miss the whole thing.”

At the weekend, Princess Beatrice and husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi (above) shared their delight after the arrival of their daughter.

Her mother Sarah was described by a family friend as being “absolutely over the moon”.
