The Duke of York stepped back from royal life in 2019 following the disastrous interview with the BBC over his relationship with convicted paedophile Jeffrey Epstein. But sources claim Andrew believes he can make a comeback.

A source said: “He still harbours thoughts that he can make a comeback.

“He genuinely thinks that’s possible.

“It’s promising that Ghislaine (Maxwell) doesn’t appear to plan to call him as a witness.

“He still does believe in his heart of hearts that he can return and that time will be a healer.

“He thinks he will be able to resume royal duties at some point and save his reputation.

“He hopes the public, if he’s supporting his mother in this difficult time, might give him the benefit of the doubt.

“He hopes there is a way back.”

However, a source close to the Royal Family said Prince Charles is “adamant” there is no way back for Andrew while allegations hang over him.

They told the MailOnline: “Prince Andrew might hope that this sad situation changes things, but Prince Charles is adamant there is no way back while allegations hang over him.

“He spoke on camera in a private capacity because this is a family event.

“No one can stop him doing that.”

It is believed Andrew has already asked the Queen to be allowed to temporarily step back as a senior royal.

Following Prince Philip’s death, Andrew made a public statement about his father.

In his tribute, Andrew said: “He was a remarkable man.

“I loved him as a father. He was so calm.

“If you had a problem, he would think about it.

“That’s the great thing that I always think about, that he was always somebody you could go to and he would always listen so it’s a great loss.

“We’ve lost almost the grandfather of the nation.

“And I feel very sorry and supportive of my mother who’s feeling it probably more than everybody else.”

In December, the Queen kicked off a new era for the Royal Family with an event attended by seven of her family members – with the group quickly being dubbed the “New Firm”.

Andrew, as well as Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, were notably absent from the line-up.

The New Firm included Prince Charles, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Princess Anne and Prince Edward and Sophie, Countess of Wessex.
