Royals are not supposed to voice opinions on politics, but Andrew spoke about the referendum result and Donald Trump at a business dinner at windsor
The Prince was apparently speaking at an event in Windsor
The royal is alleged to made the remarks at a private business dinner at Windsor Castle last Thursday.
The monarchy are meant to stay out of politics but the Prince allegedly broke with the convention by voicing fears about the result of Donald Trump winning the US election at the same time Britain was heading for Brexit .
“There was a vote here recently where we agreed to leave one organisation, and there’s a man in the US who it seems wants to leave every organisation.
“Combined, they could tear things apart. But despite what people vote for, entrepreneurship will continue,” he told the business gathering.
The Prince, a former trade envoy, was speaking to an audience of technology entrepreneurs and venture capitalists who support his Pitch@Palace.
The scheme was set up by Andrew three years ago and gives firms the chance to pitch business ideas to “a global audience of influencers.”
Pro- Brexit Labour MP John Mann told Mail Online: “He cannot have it both ways. He cannot have all the privileges of being in the Royal Family and then get involved in politics.
“If he is going to be in the Royal Family then he has to keep quiet about these things.”
Buckingham Palace declined to comment.
During the Referendum campaign Buckingham Palace took the unusual step of complaining to the press watchdog after it was claimed the Queen had privately backed Brexit .
It has since emerged Her Majesty stands to lose £1million a year in EU farm subsidies as a result of the vote to leave.
Her Majesty currently receives £700,000 a year in support for her Sandringham estate in Norfolk and £300,000 a year for land around Windsor Castle.
Prince Charles also benefits from the EU hand outs, with the Duchy of Cornwall getting £129,000 a year.
British farmers receive around £3billion a year in subsidies under the Common Agricultural Policy.
Chancellor Philip Hammond has said he will match the EU funding after Britain leaves the EU but only until 2020.
