Duke of York marks Bruges anniversary in first major royal duty since Epstein death

Prince Andrew has attended a ceremony marking the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Bruges, his first major international event since the scandal over his friendship with paedophile financier Jeffrey Epstein re-emerged.

The Duke of York was present in his role as Colonel of the Grenadier Guards and laid a wreath at the Charles II memorial in the Belgian city on Saturday morning.

He was a guest of Prince Laurent of Belgium, the brother of King Phillipe, and the pair later inspected a guard of honour in the market square.

Andrew stared directly at the bank of photographers and camera crews waiting for him at the memorial, and fumbled with the wreath which had to be placed on a stand.
