In a BBC programme, Prince Andrew ‘wanted to remind the audience that he’s a prince.’
According to a royal analyst, in a new BBC broadcast honouring the life of Prince Philip, Prince Andrew wanted to remind the viewers that he is a prince.
Senior royals paid tribute to the Duke of Edinburgh, who died on April 9 at the age of 99, in the BBC documentary ‘Prince Philip: The Royal Family Remembers’, which aired last week.
The documentary was created to commemorate Philip’s 100th birthday, with some footage shot before the royal’s death two months before the event. Despite the breach that has developed between the Duke of Sussex and his family, members of the Royal Family shared genuine insights into the life of the Duke of Edinburgh, including Prince Harry, who spoke glowingly of his grandfather.
Despite the fact that the Queen did not participate in the interview, Philip’s four children, including Andrew, were present.
The Duke of York has been under fire in recent years for his association with Jeffrey Epstein, a convicted sex offender who died in prison in 2019.
More recently, he has been embroiled in a legal battle in New York following the filing of a civil case against him by Virginia Roberts Giuffre.
Ms Giuffre is suing Andrew for allegedly sexually assaulting her when she was 17, despite the Duke of York’s categorical denial.
“It didn’t happen,” he told Newsnight in 2019, “I can absolutely certainly guarantee you it never happened.”
“I have absolutely no recollection of ever meeting this lady.”
However, he has now been served with legal documents, and he must file a response with a New York court by October 29.
In his brief documentary cameo, Andrew allegedly tried to remind viewers that he is “a prince,” according to a royal analyst.
Ann Gripper hosts Pod Save the Queen, which features Daily Mirror royal editor Russell Myers.
“[Andrew’s] only contribution was ‘I remember being in the castle, or the palace,’” Mr Myers claimed.
Everything was thrown in to basically say, “Remember, I’m a prince.”
Andrew’s cameo was likewise described as “pompous as ever” by Mr Myers.
Other members of the family, on the other hand, were “actually pretty sincere,” according to him, and both Prince William and Harry came across nicely.
The Duke of York was compelled to withdraw from public life after a “car accident” Newsnight interview about his friendship with Epstein in November 2019. “Brinkwire News Summary.”
