A few days after Prince Andrew gave a television interview about his relationship with convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, people are still stunned by his answers and cast doubt on his choice to speak up.
The Duke of York's interview on BBC Newsnight was painful to watch, and the aftermath of the disastrous 50 minutes continued when some of his sponsors distance themselves from him, while others urge him to resign from government posts. Now fingers point to the one who advised the prince to give an interview, and some accuse his ex-wife Sarah Ferguson of standing behind this.
The Duchess persuaded Andrew to interview?
While Andrew was talking to journalist Emily Maitlis about his friendship with Epstein, and about the allegations that he had sexual relations with one of Epstein’s alleged victims when she was 17 years old, there were a lot of interesting points. being called a "car accident" and Fergie is blamed for it.
A royal insider told the Daily Mail that “Andrew relied heavily on Sarah. In fact, she was the prince's biggest champion, and he appreciates her opinion and experience. When the opportunity came for this interview, Sarah felt that this might be the best way to clarify his name, while giving the public a look at the real Andrew. ”
A source added: “[Fergie] back to the handle; and although it’s unusual for the prince to go on television, she felt that these were exceptional times and unusual circumstances. ”
However, the adviser to the Duchess of York insisted that this was not so.
Fergie was shocked by the Prince's interview
Ferguson adviser James Henderson said the Daily Mail message is inaccurate.
“The Duchess was from the country last week and last week in Hong Kong; China; Saudi Arabia and Venice did not participate in this program, which took place and was completed last week while it was abroad, ”Henderson explained.
In addition, other sources said that Fergie was shocked by the interview, and people close to the duchess accused Prince Secretary Amanda Tirsk.
“Amanda’s Tyrsk’s hands are everywhere,” Ferguson’s friend told The Telegraph. “The Duke is not very fast on his feet, since Amanda could lift him up to it. Amanda was the one who insisted on this. Fifty minutes with anyone on the same topic will be difficult. Even Newsnight [was] dumbfounded. "
In 2010, Fergie apologized for accepting an Epstein loan of $ 24,500. At that time, she called her decision "a giant error in judgment." She and Andrew got married in 1986, and in 1992 separated, and in 1996 divorced. They still remain close today and are reportedly living together in Windsor Park.
