A source has claimed that the Duke of Cambridge has a strong, negative opinion over his uncle and finds his behaviour “dangerous”. Prince William reportedly wants the Duke of York cut off and removed from the public view and if it was up to him, he would have already acted accordingly.
The source told the Daily Mail: “He has strong views on the Duke of York and believes his insistence in trying to cling on to a public role is highly dangerous for the institution.
“He would have cut him loose a long time ago if it had been up to him.
“He understands that when it comes to mother and son the situation is complicated, but honestly I think he just wishes he would vanish from public view.”
Many Express readers responded to these claims with enthusiasm, with some praising the future King over his strong stance and intentions.

Traditionally, the future KIng’s birthday, like other senior royals’ birthdays, would be marked by the flying of Union flags on UK Government buildings.

Prince Andrew, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, the Duchess of Cornwall, the Earl and Countess of Wessex and the Princess Royal have all been cut from the list.
The Sun reported the wider cull of family members was made to spare any embarrassment for Andrew.
