Prince Andrew is set to be absent for Trooping the Colour today, following the settlement of sexual assault claims with his accuser.

The Prince, who usually attends the event as colonel of the Grenadier Guards, riding out by the Queen's side as the regiment's representative, has been snubbed from the event.

Andrew was stripped of his title the Duke of York earlier this year, and since has reduced his active participation in the Royal Family.

It has been reported that the Prince has met with The Queen every day in the run up to the Jubilee celebrations.

"He wants to make it up to the Queen which is why he is doing all he can to see her as much as possible.

"The rest of the family, apart from Her Majesty, are united in feeling that he should stay out of the limelight and keep quiet having left such a stain on the family".

The Prince alongside Meghan and Harry have been prohibited from appearing on the Buckingham Palace balcony, as only working Royals are permitted.

62-year-old Andrew repeatedly denied allegations that he sexually assaulted Virginia Giuffre.

The Prince forked out £12million in an out-of-court settlement, before the case went to a civil trial in the US.
