Prince Andrew has been torn apart over his ‘lack of self-awareness,’ despite the fact that he ‘thought the interview went well.’

Andrew Neil recently claimed that Prince Andrew’s “lack of self-awareness” caused him to be torn apart because he thought his infamous Newsnight interview with Emily Maitlis “went well.”

The Duke of York, 61, is awaiting the outcome of a US judge’s decision on whether or not a civil sex assault case against him will go to trial.

Virginia Roberts Giuffre has accused the Queen’s son of sexually assaulting her when she was 17 years old, and the Queen’s son has vehemently denied the allegations.

Ms Giuffre claims that her former friend, the late convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, was the one who introduced her to the Prince.

Andrew famously discussed his relationship with the disgraced financier in a BBC ‘Newsnight’ interview with Emily Maitlis.

The royal, on the other hand, has been chastised for the conversation, in which he displayed a “lack of self-awareness,” according to Andrew Neil.

In the recent Channel 5 documentary ‘2021: The Queen’s Terrible Year,’ the journalist discussed Andrew’s appearance on ‘Newsnight.’

“At the end of it, he thought he’d done rather well,” he said.

“This suggests he has no sense of judgment or self-awareness,” he continued.

The ‘Newsnight’ interview sparked a massive public outcry, and as a result, several companies and charities with which Andrew had ties have distanced themselves from him.

Andrew famously claimed he couldn’t sweat due to a medical condition during his conversation with Ms Maitlis.

The royal claimed that his military service in the Falkland Islands, during which he was shot at, caused his body to produce too much adrenaline, preventing him from sweating.

Ms Giuffre accused Andrew of being “profusely sweating,” and Andrew told Ms Maitlis that he disagreed with her.

In response to the negative reaction to the interview, Andrew stated that the Queen had given him permission to step down from his public duties for the “foreseeable future.”

The interview did not go as Andrew had hoped, according to Camilla Tominey of the Daily Telegraph, who also appeared in ‘2021: The Queen’s Terrible Year.’

“The Duke of York had hoped that it would clear the air, that he could get his version of events over with,” she explained.

“And that it would clear the slate for him, allowing him to resume his royal duties.”

“In fact, it proved to be a catastrophic mistake from which he has never fully recovered.”
