Prince Andrew, as an adult, has a collection of dozens of soft toys that must be correctly placed in her bed or else screams abuse at her family staff, a former royal employee has claimed in a TV documentary to be shown on Tuesday evenings in the UK
The assistant, Paul Page, said in an interview for the documentary, By ITV Ghislaine, Prince Andrew and the Pedophile, which traces his relationship with Ghislaine Maxwell and suggests that they may be lovers, that a multilayer diagram is kept in a drawer in the Andrew’s bedroom at Buckingham Palace showing exactly how his beloved soft toy collection should be organized, along with cushions emblazoned with words like “Daddy,” “Ducks” and “Prince.”
The multi-layer instructions say: “When DOY is staying overnight, place a small cotton ball and cushion under it one by one.
“When making the bed, place the plush & cushion next to the stuffed animal on the left side with the necklace.”
Page, who worked as a security guard from 1998 to 2004, told the TV show: “It had about 50 or 60 stuffed toys placed on the bed and basically had a card that the inspector gave him. We look in the drawer and there are pictures of these bears all in place.
“The reason for the layered painting is that if those bears are not put in the correct order by the maid, he will scream and scream.”
Page is jailed for a £3 million scam in 2009, however he is not the only witness to the duke’s uncanny love.
Follow Mirror, Writer Elizabeth Day has also seen teddies and said, “It seems rather strange for a grown man to enjoy a stuffed toy.”
After his wedding to Sarah Ferguson, his brother Prince Edward tied a large brown teddy bear to their away carriage.
And in 2010, Andrew himself revealed: “I have always collected teddy bears. Everywhere I go in the Navy, I usually buy a little teddy bear, so I have a collection from all over the world, one kind or another. ”
Away from soft toy pleasures, it was reported today that the queen is considering how to strip Andrew and Prince Harry of the last remaining constitutional roles as Counselor of State. There are four Counselors of State — the rest are William and Charles — and the position means they theoretically take over the queen’s official duties should she be incompetent.
A royal source told Daily mail: “It’s a real problem the palace is trying to solve. Can you imagine the Duke of York having to sign official documents, for example, since the Prince of Wales and the Duke of Cambridge are both overseas, and the Queen is ill? It is no exaggeration to say that it could put the monarchy in jeopardy.”
