Royal neighbour: More people prefer Andrew to Charles and Camilla who are 'more likely to argue on the lawn'
Charles and Camilla were branded 'the antisocial neighbors' in the survey
Despite being branded the 'Hot Mess Express' neighbor, a majority of people in a recently-conducted survey said that they would prefer to live next to Prince Andrew rather than Prince Charles and Camilla and even Andrew's daughters, Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice.
The survey posed a series of questions to 1,000 participants, to hypothetically determine, 'Which royal would you choose to be your neighbor?'
Harry and Meghan were the most favored overall, with 36.2% people thinking they were the most approachable royal couple. The fact that people could actually end up living next to the duo after 'Megxit' last month, also added to their popularity as most favored neighbors. William and Kate followed in a close second (26.3%) while Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip took the third place with 13.1% votes.
What's surprising, however, was that the fourth position was occupied by Prince Andrew, the Queen's son who was fired from his princely duties last year after he sat for a tell-all interview with BBC, where he opened up about his ties to pedophile billionaire Jeffrey Epstein. His brother Prince Charles and Charles' wife Camilla - the future heads of the British monarchy - scored less than Andrew when it came to people wanting them as neighbors.
In the absence of a royal income, many survey takers were concerned whether Andrew will be able to maintain the royal standards when it came to maintenance of his house and princely properties.
"Prince Andrew, who stepped back from his public duties in 2019, took the crown in some of the least favorable categories, with 37% saying he would likely have the messiest lawn... He was also dubbed the most nosy neighbor by 23% of respondents, and although the royals are known for unique hats, grandiose homes (do castles even count as homes?), and plenty of corgis, Prince Andrew was also voted by 24.5% of respondents as the royal most likely to have tacky home decor," the survey read.
That was not all. 32% of the voters believed that "he would be most likely to start a home renovation project and never finish it". However, before the Queen fired her own son last year, Andrew had already coughed up $9.7M for renovating his palatial home - the Royal Lodge. Hence, its highly unlikely that he would need to concern himself with any major renovations again in the near future.
Charles and Camilla, on the other hand, were branded 'The Antisocial Neighbors' as they were voted "the ones most likely to argue on the front lawn by 23.7%".
Meanwhile, people seem to care the least about Andrew's daughters Eugenie and Beatrice, despite them carrying the royal titles of "princess". They were termed 'The Forgotten Neighbors' with only 7% of the participants wanting to live next to them.
