A ROYAL expert has claimed that Prince Andrew is "probably very depressed" about not being included in the Order of the Garter procession on Monday.

The Order of the Garter is an annual tradition which sees the monarch and the rest of the royal family honour the Knights of the Garter at a special event on the grounds of Windsor Castle.

Ingrid Seward, a royal commentator, told GB News that Andrew is probably "completely lost" but "unable to do anything".

Seward added: "Especially seeing all his family riding at the trooping on Saturday when only a few years before he was doing the same thing".

Prince Andrew was snubbed last year, making this the second year in a row.

The oldest order of chivalry in Britain, the Order of the Garterfounded by Edward III in 1348 to recognise contributions to public service – with the King nominating a select few each year.

Most senior working royals are also members, including King Charles and Queen Camilla.
