Prince Andrew’s appearance on Prince Philip documentary enrages BBC viewers

Prince Andrew appeared on Prince Philip: The Royal Family Remembers on Wednesday evening, speaking about his late father, the Duke of Edinburgh, who died earlier this year.

The Queen’s son, 61, appeared in the documentary that was partly filmed ahead of the late Duke’s 100th birthday, just weeks before he passed away – and viewers were not happy to see him.

Prince Andrew currently lives at Balmoral, the Queen’s private estate in Scotland. He was served with court papers by Virginia Roberts Giuffre who had accused him for sexual abuse during her 17-year-old years.

He has repeatedly vowed to assist any law enforcement agencies and strongly denied any allegations against him.

Speaking to the camera, the Duke said: “My children had the most amazing relationship with their grandfather.”

The Duke’s two daughters, Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie of York also spoke of their grandfather, describing him as a “constant” in their lives.

A few seconds after Prince Andrew’s appearance, Twitter was flooded with angry viewers.

“Are the BBC beyond stupid? The Prince Philip tribute has begun with a tribute from amongst others the Duke of York – shame on them. Shame on them,” One.

While a second added: “@BBCOne are you being serious interviewing ‘HRH Prince Andrew’. Very disappointed that you feel that this is acceptable.”

“I can’t believe Prince Andrew is on The Royal Family Remembers,” tweeted a third.

The Duke said that he had taught his daughters to swim and to play Badminton. He also taught them all other sports.

“He taught me to drive,” before his sister Anne, The Princess Royal admitted that Prince Philip taught her and her siblings to drive from a young age.

Andrew’s legal team argues that he was not properly served papers in Virginia Giuffre, Jeffrey Epstein victim of sexual assault.

Ms Giuffre (38) accuses Andrew with abusing her at Epstein’s Manhattan residence and on the private estate of the paedophile billionaire in the Virgin Islands.

On Friday, September 17, the High Court gave his £1,000-a-day legal team seven days to challenge its landmark decision to hand Andrew’s legal team the papers in its own right.

Virginia Giuffre’s lawyers also stated that they had sent the lawsuit by FedEx and email to Andrew Brettler, the prince’s LA-based lawyer. Both copies were received Monday morning.

Andrew has 21 calendar days to respond to the US filing. Otherwise, he may face a default judge.

The Duke and Duchess of York have not been charged for any criminal wrongdoings.
