Prince Andrew has been forced out of Buckingham Palace after his Jeffrey Epstein controversy.
Recently, Epstein defended his friend Epstein during a BBC interview. Epstein, who recently died in prison, was convicted of a multitude of sexual crimes. Prince Andrew was also implicated of sex crimes by one victim.
The Duke of York has apparently been asked to leave the Buckingham Palace, where had an office for his private charity Pitch. According to The Times, he will continue to work for the charity.
A Buckingham Palace spokesperson said, “The Duke will continue to work on Pitch and will look at how he takes this forward outside of his public duties, and outside of Buckingham Palace. We recognize there will be a period of time while this transition takes place.”
Other charities have made the active effort of removing themselves from the Duke. This includes the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. After their refusal to work with him, the Duke stepped down voluntarily from the English National Ballet and other charities.
Despite seemingly distancing themselves from him, Prince Andrew’s family seems to be on good terms with him. He was seen horseback riding with Queen Elizabeth II. Additionally, his title and income from the Queen’s Privy Purse has not been touched.
His ex-wife Sarah Fergusson said in a public statement, “I am deeply supportive and proud of this giant of a principled man, that dares to put his shoulder to the wind and stands firm with his sense of honour and truth.”
However, Prince Andrew’s daughter’s Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugene have not yet spoken up for their dad.
