PRINCE Andrew is making secret visits to see the Queen under cover of darkness as he plots a return to public duty.
His latest night-time trip to Windsor Castle took place last Tuesday.
Andy, 60, held a Covid-secure meeting with the Queen, 94, last week, arriving after dark.
One insider said: “This looked like a deliberate attempt not to be seen.”
He quit senior royal duties last November after his “car crash” Newsnight interview.
He’s also been dragged into Epstein ex-lover Ghislaine Maxwell’s prosecution and is set to feature heavily in her New York trial next year.
Palace officials deny any formal talks about a return.
And a source said: “What he wants and what the family are prepared to discuss are probably at odds.”
