Prince Andrew ’s siblings were reportedly nowhere to be seen during the underfire royal’s 60 th birthday bash.
But, that didn’t stop top businessmen and politicians from attending the party at Royal Lodge, the Windsor residence he shares with ex-wife Sarah Ferguson.
It is understood a group of 50 pals were at the bash last week, but others were invited who declared themselves “unavailable”.
A source told The Daily Mail: "Neither of Andrew’s brothers was there, nor Princess Anne, but it was a wonderful party.
"A really good range of people."
