Like Prince Harry, Andrew is the younger brother of a future King. Though often viewed as the Queen’s favorite son, the Duke of York has faced criticism for his pampered, jet-setting lifestyle, and for his somewhat questionable friendships, namely with a Kazakh billionaire tycoon and disgraced U.S. financier Jeffrey Epstein. Since the breakdown of his marriage to Sarah Ferguson in 1992 and subsequent divorce, Andrew’s peripatetic love life has also gathered significant media attention. Among the most bizarre rumors: in 2006, Courtney Love claimed that Andrew once knocked on her door in the middle of the night seeking female company. A spokesperson admitted the prince had visited Love’s house on the evening in question but insisted it was for a social event and that allegations he went looking for girls were “absolute nonsense.”
