‘Idiot’ Prince Andrew is ‘not at all bright,’ royal experts savagely declare


Prince Andrew’s bad attitude toward his royal staff has been revealed in a new book about the firm.

Valentine Low’s book “Courtiers: The Hidden Power Behind the Crown” details the royal family’s treatments of their Buckingham Palace staff.

One employee revealed in the bombshell novel how the Duke of York, 62, was rude to his castle workers.

“That arrogance could have stemmed from a lack of self-confidence. He is not at all bright,” Low wrote.

Low added that Andrew was “not easy to deal with” and “was very arrogant indeed.”

The royal expert also noted how he would often tell his mother, the late Queen Elizabeth, that his advisors were “all being nasty to me.”

According to a courtier that Low spoke to, the fact that Andrew “lashed out and was very rude to advisers like me was down to a total lack of self-confidence, and [an awareness] that he could always run to his mother and say, ‘They are all being nasty to me.’”

The father-of-two had been previously stripped of his royal duties and titles by his mom after being disgraced over his friendship with the late convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.

He subsequently paid a settlement to his sexual abuse accuser Virginia Giuffre in March.

A new Peacock series — entitled “Banished” — will take a look at the prince’s tumultuous life in the spotlight.

Dickie Arbiter, who was Queen Elizabeth’s spokesman from 1988 until 2000, joined other experts in in the series to discuss Andrew’s downfall.

The royal family’s former press secretary called him an “idiot” and the “runt of the litter” in the docuseries.

“Andrew always had this holier-than-thou, I’m-greater-than-everybody-else, the-queen-is-my-mom attitude,” Arbiter recalled of Andrew, who has often been referred to as the sovereign’s favorite son. “The problem is, the man’s an idiot,” he said.

Andrew is currently eighth in the line of succession to the British throne, with his older brother King Charles III acting as the current monarch.

However, Andrew reportedly “lobbied” his mother at one point to stop Charles from being king.

In the biography “Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall: From Outcast to Future Queen Consort,” author Angela Levin alleged that Andrew discussed with Princess Diana and his ex-wife Sarah Ferguson to prevent Charles, 73, from being crowned.

“When Diana was alive, through her friendship with Andrew’s wife Sarah, she plotted with Andrew to try to push Prince Charles aside so Prince Andrew could become regent to Prince William, who was then a teenager,” the book claimed, calling the moments “dark and strange” and full of “paranoia.”

“His behavior was very, very negative and extremely unpleasant to Queen [Elizabeth], who disagreed. I was told it was one of the rare occasions he didn’t get his way,” Levin alleged in the book.
