Prince Andrew left his father’s funeral in back of his new £220,000 Bentley

Prince Andrew left the Duke of Edinburgh‘s funeral in the back of his new £220,000 racing-green Bentley which he had fitted with personalised number plates.

The Duke of York, 61, sat in the back of the 200mph green Bentley Flying Spur – which was blue when first delivered in September before being spray-painted.

The motor, with its personalised number plate, was pictured driving out of Windsor Castle on the way to nearby Royal Lodge, the home Andrew shares with ex-wife Sarah Ferguson, 61. 

Just hours earlier, Prince Andrew walked behind his father’s coffin as it was slowly carried to St George’s Chapel in Windsor on the back of a custom-built Land Rover hearse.

Inside the chapel, Andrew sat closest to the Queen – with the family still separated by countless empty chairs due to social distancing rules.

The duke’s appearance at the funeral came 18-months after he stepped back from Royal duties after his disastrous Newsnight interview over his friendship with Jeffrey Epstein.

The new Bentley joins a fleet of luxury motors belonging to Andrew – including a £115,000 petrol-hybrid Range Rover, The Sun reports.

Prince Andrew was seen in the back of the car, which replaces an old Bentley the duke owned. 

It was this week revealed that Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson made regular visits to see the Queen after Prince Philip’s death.

The Queen was left sitting on her own during the Duke of Edinburgh’s funeral on Saturday in tear-jerking images that shocked the nation. 

However, the royals have rushed to her side following Philip’s death, led by Andrew and his ex-wife with sources saying that Prince Edward and Sophie Wessex have also spent ‘a lot of time’ supporting her.  

As the Queen returns to life without her husband of 73 years she will also be staying at Windsor Castle with a ‘bubble’ of 22 Royal household staff, including some of her closest aides. 

It was today revealed that the Windsor ‘bubble’ will be the only group joining her for her 95th birthday on Wednesday – her first without Philip in seven decades. 

Plans to mark the day with a new portrait of her are set to be shelved because she is still in the official period of royal mourning for her beloved husband.
