In addition to being pictured with his mother during this time, Andrew also spent several weeks with her at Balmoral Castle in Scotland during the summer holidays.

Prince Andrew Remembers His Mother
Prince Andrew has shared a sweet, never-before-seen photo of himself and Queen Elizabeth II in honor of her 95th birthday.
The scandal-plagued royal shared the touching pic on Instagram Friday and wrote, “I asked Her Majesty to wish everyone a Happy Birthday as she’s been doing since 1952. This year, I am delighted to share this beautiful image with you all.”
The photo was taken in 2006 at Windsor Castle when Prince Andrew was serving as an Air Force helicopter pilot during his service for Britain’s Royal Navy. In it, he can be seen smiling next to the queen; both look stylish and happy as they pose for the camera with arms crossed over their chests.
The pair have known each other for more than 50 years—they first met when Prince Charles took Princess Anne down the aisle at Westminster Abbey in 1973—but this is one of only three times they’ve ever been photographed together (the other two were taken by Cecil Beaton).
