The Queen is a figurehead so no.

No but she could encourage him to go in the hope that they would keep him.

I don't think so. The Queen has powers to stop legal proceedings in the United Kingdom. She does not have the power to affect the US's system.

No, to get him to america there would have to be an arrest, and he would have to be charged with something, he has legally done nothing wrong, and if he had just kept his mouth shut he would be free and clear.

If she wants to keep respect she should encourage it.

They need a warrant before they can extradite anyone, and seeing that one has never been issued for Prince Andrew it's not going to happen.

In theory yes, in practise no.

I believe she does. Or should.

Do you honestly believe that the US would attempt to extradite Prince Andrew? Do you think the UK would try and extradite, oh, say Pelosi? Hell, why not Trump?
Never gonna happen.
