Prince Andrew flashed a smile as he reemerged to drive his Range Rover around the grounds of Windsor Castle on Monday morning.

A friend of the disgraced Duke of York said Andrew is "refusing to budge" from his $37 million royal lodge, which served as his home for two decades, causing a further divide, RadarOnline.com has learned amid brewing tension in the royal family.

"He's concerned that now the coronation is over, the knives are out," the pal said. "He's worried that the royals might even turn off the utilities to get him out of there. But we're dealing with human beings, not real estate."

King Charles wants to move his brother to the smaller Frogmore Cottage that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle once lived in before they relocated to California, but Andrew is allegedly pushing to stay put at the 30-bedroom home he resides in with ex-wife Sarah Ferguson.

Insiders said that Andrew is eager to convince Charles to reconsider his eviction plans amid claims the property is being eyed for Prince William and his wife, Kate Middleton.

Plus, the eviction allegedly came because Andrew is no longer a "working royal" due to his now-settled sex assault lawsuit brought forth by his accuser, Virginia Giuffre.

Andrew was stripped of his royal and military honors last year by his late mother, Queen Elizabeth.

It's believed the animosity may not be over yet, as sources said that Andrew has other plans if his brother Charles doesn't restore his palace paycheck and privileges.

RadarOnline.com exclusively learned that Andrew is apparently considering writing a tell-all that would put Harry's to shame. "What Andrew can reveal about certain members of his family would blow the lid off," one tipster said. "Andrew has access to information that could prove embarrassing to Charles and, indeed, the whole family."
