In the buzzing world of royal affairs and celebrity news, King Charles has recently found himself under intense scrutiny, accused of displaying a clear ‘double standard’ in his interactions with family members. Daniela Elser, an esteemed journalist, has brought this brewing controversy to light in an insightful piece for

The heart of the issue revolves around the contrasting treatment King Charles seems to be showing towards Prince Andrew and Prince Harry. Reports are surfacing that Prince Andrew, despite his past controversies, is set to be warmly reintegrated into the royal fold, known informally as "the Firm."

Daniela Elser does not mince her words when discussing this disparity. She opines, “Should the Duke of York be permitted the luxury of freely navigating his grand residence, it only seems fitting that priority be given to locating a suitable London residence for the Suss*xes." Elser further underscores her point by jestingly suggesting the King add this to his immediate checklist, alongside tasks like expanding his role in the Commonwealth and perhaps something as mundane as sock shopping.

What is unmistakably evident from Elser's observations is a sentiment echoing through various quarters of society. The different stances taken by the monarchy concerning Prince Andrew and Prince Harry, both of whom have had their share of scandals in recent times, project a distinct dichotomy in royal behavior.

Concluding her piece, Elser quips with a hint of irony, "We're witnessing a game of tinker, tailor, soldier... and an exasperated sigh."

It remains to be seen how this debate unfolds and whether the monarchy addresses these concerns. But one thing is for sure - the narrative of a ‘double standard’ within the royal family is gaining significant traction, and the world is watching closely.
