Piers Morgan blasts Prince Andrew over the loss of military honors, calling it an “utter humiliation.”
PIERS MORGAN has launched a scathing attack on Prince Andrew following the royal’s honours being revoked.
Following the latest ruling in Virginia Giuffre’s civil case against Prince Andrew, Piers Morgan, 56, gave a scathing assessment of the situation.
All of the Duke of York’s military titles and royal patronages were taken away from him today by the Queen.
The TV host responded to the latest news on Twitter, where he has a 7.9 million-strong following.
“The Duke of York’s military affiliations and Royal patronages have been returned to the Queen with the Queen’s approval and agreement,” according to a statement from Buckingham Palace.
“The Duke of York will continue to refuse to perform any public duties and is defending himself as a private citizen in this case.”
“Utter humiliation for Andrew but he only has himself to blame – and far worse is to come if he continues to try to stonewall his way out of any accountability re the serious allegations against him andamp; his relationship with EpsteinMaxwell,” the former Good Morning Britain host said.
Piers’ tweet received over 1,000 likes and 80 retweets just two hours after it was published.
The ongoing situation, according to one Twitter user, could be affecting the Queen.
“How horrible for HMTQ to have to deal with so much personal sadness in her later years,” Jodie88883853 tweeted.
“We all hope there will be some sense of peace when we get to this point in our lives!” (sic)
Buckingham Palace has confirmed that Prince Andrew will be unable to use his HRH title.
The decision comes after Judge Lewis A Caplan ruled that the civil case against Prince Andrew can go to trial.
Previously, the Duke’s lawyers had attempted to have the case dismissed.
Ms Giuffre and convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein signed a 2009 agreement in which Ms Giuffre agreed not to sue any “potential defendants,” according to the royal’s defense team.
He will face a civil case in the United States over allegations that he sexually abused Ms Giuffre when she was 17 years old in 2001.
Ms Guiffre claims that Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell arranged for her to be trafficked to Andrew and abused by him.
The accusations against the Queen’s son have been refuted.
“For the foregoing reasons, defendant’s motion to dismiss the complaint or for a more definite statement is denied,” Judge Kaplan wrote in his decision.
