Royal biographer Ingrid Seward claimed the Duke of York is considering modelling himself on the Duke of Sussex.
Writing for the Sun, Ms Seward said: “Since the Duke was stripped of his royal titles and patronages, he has likened his own situation to that of his nephew Prince Harry.
“And he is contemplating following in the footsteps of the younger royal, feeling there might be the possibility of a new life for him in the world of broadcasting, public speaking, television and even publishing.”
Ms Seward added that Andrew would “probably need to move to America” but would “certainly wouldn’t take such a leap” until the FBI’s investigation into Jeffrey Epstein has “settled down”.
The royal expert said the Duke still has contacts in the US from when he was the UK’s trade representative.
Ms Seward added: “But, for the moment at least, he has plenty of other things to worry about.”
Andrew and Harry stepped back as working royals for very different reasons.
Harry and Meghan Markle quit royal duties in March 2020 for new lives of personal and financial freedom in California.
The couple have since signed lucrative deals with Netflix and Spotify as they pursue new careers away from the monarchy.

The Duke has always strenuously denied the allegations against him.
Although the parties have settled the case, the agreement is not an admission of guilt from Andrew.
In a sign of the Duke’s future status, questions have been raised over whether he will attend a memorial service for Prince Philip.
He is also facing calls to give up his Duke of York title.
Royal experts have said it is unlikely Andrew can ever return to public duties.
Royal author Penny Junor said the agreement made it appear “as though he has finally been humbled”.
Joe Little, of Majesty magazine, added that Andrew will “forever be tainted”.
