No truth in rumours of royal clash over Beatrice and Eugenie, Duke of York says

Updated: 

The Duke of York has said there is "no truth" in rumours of a rift between him and the Prince of Wales over his daughters' participation as members of the Royal Family.

Making a rare public statement, Andrew posted a link on Twitter in response to recent rumours regarding Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice.

He said: "It is a complete fabrication to suggest I have asked for any future husbands of the Princesses to have titles.

"There is no truth to the story that there could be a split between The Prince of Wales and I over my daughters' participation as members of the Royal Family and any continued speculation is pointless."
