Preparations are already underway for Prince Philip’s 100th birthday celebration, which will take place in June 2021. However, the party will reportedly be bittersweet because of the recent scandal surrounding Prince Andrew. According to a royal expert, the scandal has forced Prince Philip to make the “toughest decision of his life.”

Prince Philip’s second-oldest son — Prince Andrew — got caught up in the Jeffrey Epstein scandal in 2019. Even though the story is no longer making headlines in the United States, the Duke of York is still suffering serious fallout from his relationship with Epstein. Not to mention the subsequent BBC interview he gave about the situation.
Philip’s connection to Epstein has been so toxic, he has been pulled out of the royal spotlight. He didn’t appear in his own daughter’s wedding photos when Princess Beatrice married Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi. And, according to Express, there are rumors swirling that he will soon lose his HRH title.
