Andrew missed last month’s service with her Majesty after pictures emerged of him inside paedo pal Epstein’s mansion in 2010.

But he showed a display of unity riding alongside the Queen, who is currently spending her summer holiday at the Scottish residence.

She looked incredible in a bright pink coat and hat, which was adorned with white flowers.

Andrew has faced continued scrutiny over his relationship with paedo Epstein, who hanged himself on August 10 while awaiting trial for sex trafficking charges.

His public engagements in Northern Ireland have been cancelled by hosts over his friendship with the billionaire.

A ceremony at Portrush railway station to mark its £5million was among a string of events to be scrapped last week.

Cancellations at the station and other undisclosed venues were made by by the venue chiefs, not the Royal Family.

One organiser reportedly expressed concerns his presence would “change the narrative” surrounding their event.

ROYAL SEX CLAIMS

The Sun revealed today that Andrew allegedly tried to seduce Courtney Love after being introduced through Epstein.

While they did not sleep together, Courtney — widow of Nirvana rocker Kurt Cobain — has told friends Andrew was “very flirtatious”.

It is the latest of a long string of allegations made against Andrew since Epstein’s death.

The financier’s alleged sex slave Virginia Roberts claims she had sex with the prince aged 17 – which he strongly denies.

Ms Roberts, 36, who now uses the surname Giuffre, had her claims against the royal thrown out by a judge who deemed them “immaterial” to her defamation case against “madam” Ghislaine Maxwell.

Prince Andrew released a statement condemning his former pal, while Buckingham Palace said the Duke of York would help authorities in any investigations into the disgraced millionaire.

The Duke was last pictured with Epstein in New York in 2010 after the hedge fund manager had been released from prison and was a registered sex offender.

He was infamously pictured with his arm around Ms Roberts at Ms Maxwell’s home in London in 2001.

She once again spoke out about the Duke last month, saying Andrew should “come clean” about their alleged encounters.

At least five women who say they were abused by Epstein have filed lawsuits against his £458million estate after the paedo killed himself.

All said Epstein used a “vast enterprise” of associates to recruit them, subject them to unwanted sex acts and keep them under his control.

He was arrested on July 6 over claims he was involved in the sex-trafficking of dozens of girls as young as 14 from at least 2002 until 2005.
