According to sources, Prince Andrew was allegedly mocked by palace aides who mocked him with nursery rhymes after his sexual exploitation was settled.
The royal family’s alleged slogan came after Prince Andrew’s ساتھ 12 million sexual exploitation settlement with Virginia Geffery.
Inspired by the nursery rhyme, the assistants are said to have jokingly shared the lyrics, stating: “Grand Old Duke of York, he had 12 million rupees.
“He gave it to someone he had never met, for something he had never done.”
The joke refers to Newsnight’s infamous Newsnight interview with the BBC’s Emily Metals in November 2019 – where Andrew said he had “no recollection” of ever meeting Ms Geoffrey.
He further added that he had no recollection of Gislaine Maxwell’s famous portrait of Ms Giuffre with her arms around her waist.
Andrew had previously asked if he had a hand in the photo.
But despite her denial and saying she had never met Virginia, she settled the rape case out of court this week for 12 million.
Most read in the Scottish Sun.
The Sunday Times also claimed that sources close to Andrew said that “it is a pity he was ever with Epstein.”
He added: “He regrets, especially the effects on his mother and her family.”
The same sources say that the figure of £ 12 million settlement is “out of millions”.
It was also reported that Andrew will appear in public on March 29 at a Thanksgiving service for Prince Philip at Westminster Abbey.
After that, the queen will decide if she can attend future “family” events, depending on how disturbing she is.
This includes his jubilee service at St. Paul’s Cathedral on June 3, in which Andrew will have no formal role.
It comes after news broke that Andrew would use the family loan to settle his £ 12 million financial settlement – when Charles persuaded his infamous brother to pay for his sexual exploitation.
The Prince of Wales has ordered the infamous Duke of York to “shut it down” and pay for the video witness statement accompanying lawyers for Virginia Roberts Gaffrey for fear of a “car accident”.
The capital of laughter
Royal sources say the heir to the throne met with the queen at Windsor Castle last Tuesday and then wrote a letter to his younger brother asking him to “understand”.
He feared Andy would be “sacked” by Virginia lawyer David Boyce because he was in Emily Mattles’ horrific Newsnight interview in November 2019, which forced him to resign from public duty.
According to sources close to the prince, the cash-strapped Duke of York, 61, is still waiting for his 17 million Swiss chalet revenue – the sale of which is expected to be completed “within weeks”.
That means Charles, 73, and Queen, 95, will sink into their personal funds to make sure Andrew can settle and donate before the March 17 deadline.
Andrew will be asked to repay his “bridging loan” once he has settled his troubled finances.
The significant change comes just three weeks after Andrew demanded a jury in a New York rape case, claiming the case was “not a marathon sprint.”
