Riot Act or civilised lunch chat.
Prince Charles “read the riot act” to his brother Prince Andrew after dragging him to Sandringham for a showdown.
Andrew was summoned to Sandringham to meet Charles and their dad Prince Philip over a light lunch.
A royal source said: “It was all very civilised and calm but Charles calmly read him the riot act and told him there was no way back for him in the near future.
To “read the Riot Act” is a phrase meaning “to reprimand severely”, with the added sense of a stern warning.
