Prince Andrew's public appearance, which was first reported by the BBC on Monday, will be his first since he settled an out-of-court financial settlement with his accuser Virginia Giuffre.

The amount that Prince Andrew has paid Ms Giuffre, 38, is confidential, the parties said in a joint statement attached to the filing back in February.

Andrew stepped down from royal duties in November 2019 but was present at his father's funeral in April 2021.

In January this year, the Queen stripped her second son of his prestigious honorary military titles and royal patronages, and he stopped using his HRH style.

One family member that will not be at the service, however, is Prince Harry. A spokesperson for the Duke confirmed he would be missing the event earlier this month, but added that Harry hopes to visit his grandmother, the Queen soon.

The decision comes after the father-of-two claimed during a preliminary hearing against the Home Office over his police protection in the UK that he "does not feel safe" in the country.

The Duke of Sussex had previously applied for a judicial review of a Home Office decision not to allow him to personally pay for police protection for himself and his family when they are in the UK after being told he would no longer be given the “same degree” of personal protective security when visiting from the US.

He wanted to bring his children, Archie, two, and eight-month-old Lilibet, to visit from the US, but he and his family are "unable to return to his home" because it is too dangerous, a legal representative for the Duke previously said.
