The Queen is still fuming.
Queen Elizabeth II reportedly held an emergency meeting with Prince Charles to discuss Prince Andrew, who has been heavily caught up in a scandal over his longtime friendship with convicted pedophile and child trafficker Jeffrey Epstein.
The two gathered at Sandringham to chat about “family matters,” The Sun reported.
A royal source said: “Both had hoped the Duke of York could perhaps be rehabilitated back into public life in time but that is now looking increasingly unlikely.”
The Sun revealed that a UK police probe into Andy’s US paedo pal Jeffrey Epstein could be reopened after it was dropped in 2016.
The news came 24 hours after a US law chief shamed the Duke by revealing the FBI tried to quiz him over Epstein but got “zero co-operation”.
The FBI has a witness who says she saw Andrew dancing with “sex slave” Virginia Roberts Giuffre at London’s Tramp nightclub in 2001.
A source reportedly close to the Duke told The Sun: “The Duke is more than happy to talk to the FBI but he hasn’t been approached by them yet. He is angry about the way this is being portrayed.”
But The Daily Mail, another British paper, said that’s not the case.
“Prince Andrew ignored a letter sent to his home from one of Jeffrey Epstein’s victims who begged him to speak to the FBI ‘in the interests of justice’, according to a lawyer for one of the victims,” the Mail reported.
Gloria Allred represents Jane Doe 15, who claims she was abused by Epstein when she was 15 years old, and sent the letter on her behalf to the Duke of York saying his testimony could help her find ‘peace’.
Allred said that at first, she sent it to Andrew’s lawyers in the UK back in December.
But when his lawyers told her to send it directly to Prince Andrew, she never got a response – despite a FedEx delivery receipt confirming the royal had received it.
Prince Andrew in November sat down for an interview with the BCC about his friendship with Epstein, the convicted pedophile whose death in prison in August was ruled a suicide.
It did not go well.
After the disastrous interview, Prince Andrew announced that he was stepping back from his official duties. Now, he’s been kicked out of his offices at Buckingham Palace.
Andrew’s mother, the Queen, authorized her son’s eviction from the London palace in what is just “the latest humiliation for the beleaguered” Duke of York, The Times of London reported.
“It has become clear to me over the last few days that the circumstances relating to my former association with Jeffrey Epstein has become a major disruption to my family’s work and the valuable work going on in the many organisations and charities that I am proud to support,” Andrew said in a statement.
Prince Andrew palled around with Epstein for years, visiting his Manhattan penthouse, his Florida mansion, and his private island in the Caribbean. At one point, when the two were together in London, the prince was pictured with Guiffre, who claims that he had sex with her when she was just 17 years old.
Andrew has vehemently denied the pair ever had sex, but Guiffre has detailed the evening several times, including once in a lawsuit against Epstein.
