Prince Philip will not leave Prince Harry out of his will, despite fractious relations between his grandson and the rest of the Royal Family, reports suggest.
The Queen’s late husband is thought to have left some £30 million to benefactors will Prince Harry set to inherit a ‘tidy sum’. Philip’s son Prince Andrew, who has been caught up in a string of lurid allegations about his relationship with the paedophile Jeffrey Epstein, is also expected to benefit.
His wife is expected to receive the majority of the estimated total, but three of the Duke of Edinburgh’s aides are also expected to benefit. Meanwhile one source said Philip’s Grandchildren will have been ‘sorted out quite a while ago’ – meaning recent tensions would not have impacted the will.
The Insider told Fabulous: ‘Unlike some other royals, Prince Philip will be generous to the three men who looked after him.
‘These include his private secretary Brigadier Archie Miller Bakewell, his page William Henderson and valet Stephen Niedojadlo.’
Philip died last month, just a few weeks shy of his 100th birthday.
Harry and Andrew attended the funeral, with the former returning from America where he had given a bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey, making a host of damning allegations about the Royal Family.
The insider continued: ‘Philip was not the sort of character to punish a grandson [like Harry] for misbehaving.
‘He was a very fair, even-handed and lovely man. Never held a grudge’, The Sun reported.
The source added that the dukes’s children – Prince Charles, Princess Anne, Prince Edward and Prince Andrew – have been told they can ‘take what they want’ from his collection of 13,000 books in his library at Buckingham Palace.
The Royal Family traditionally pass on their wealth within the family, and generally to those next in line.
Wills were historically made public but have not been for some time.
But one peer, David McClure, has called for the will to be made public.
The royal finance expert said: ‘If it’s good enough for all citizens why shouldn’t it be good enough for the Royal Family?’
