However all his treasured possessions have been shifted out while renovation takes place — and they will never return now his older brother Charles is King.

Andrew has been told that if he wants to sleep in London he must move into new digs, nearby St. James’s Palace a possible option.

The bombshell comes almost a year later Andrew’s £12million sexual abuse lawsuit payout that Virginia Giuffre.

And it is the latest blow dished out to the divorced father of two since Charles succeeded their late mother the Queen to the throne last September.

A source said last night:The King has made it clear that Buckingham Palace is no place for Prince Andrew.

“First his office closed last year and now his sleeping quarters.

“Andrew loved having a suite at Buckingham Palace where he was not only set up for marital life with Sarah Ferguson but used it as a bachelor’s pad after his divorce.

“He brought back a string of new girlfriends to his home in the Palace — even model Caprice. A bachelor’s flat in St James’s Palace doesn’t have the same allure for a single man.”

The Palace is undergoing a £369million, ten-year rebuilding project which includes gutting and renovating Andrew’s suite, known as the Chamber Floor.

Last year, The Sun revealed Andrew liked to surround himself in his royal bed with five teddy bears or other stuffed animals, which had to be in specific positions.

Staff drew a sketch on how they should be arranged, including a teddy holding a heart, hippos, plus cushions with “Daddy”, “Ducks” and “Prince” on them.

If they were not set out as he liked, he would throw a tantrum, it was claimed.

Mementos of his Royal Navy helicopter days were also dotted around, including upturned military shell cases which served as ashtrays.

The door was labeled “The Duke and Duchess of York” years after he split from Sarah in 1992. Dozens of pics of his ex-wife, now 63, plus daughters Beatrice34, and Eugenie32, filled the suite.

It was also revealed that the prince would be awakened there every morning by a footman who set down a “calling tray” containing a pot of tea, a china cup and a saucer.

However, last January Andrew was stripped of his military roles and royal patronages amid links to the disgraced paedophile Jeffrey Epstein.

He later agreed to a huge payout to settle a US lawsuit brought against him by Ms. Giuffre — but did not admit any crime or misconduct.

The Sun revealed on Christmas Eve that he was forced to close his Palace office and told not to use it as an address.

Meanwhile, it has been reported that Andrew has been confidently telling friends while out shooting of a big development that could restore his shattered reputation.

A source said: “He says details are about to be made public which will change people’s perceptions of him. He says that it will happen next month.”

It is understood that discussions are under way to find him accommodation in London.
