Princess Beatrice was very distraught over her father Prince Andrew's disastrous interview on the BBC regarding his ties to now-deceased convicted pedophile, Jeffrey Epstein. The princess, 31 was at her fiance's birthday party when it all went down.
Beatrice's mother, Sarah Ferguson arranged the interview, in hopes that her ex-husband could explain his ties to Epstein.
According to a source in The Mail on Sunday, “Initially, Beatrice was skeptical that a television interview, which would inevitably delve into her father’s private life, was such a good idea,” “But by the end of the meeting she was convinced by the Newsnight team and Amanda Thirsk [Prince Andrew’s private secretary] that they had no choice — that it was the only way to put all the rumors behind them.”
Prince Andrew's Ties To Convicted Pedophile Jeffrey Epstein
Prince Andrew’s November 17 BBC interview was a PR nightmare that led to him stepping down from his royal duties. His mother, Queen Elizabeth II, even canceled his 60th birthday party. He swore up and down, unconvincingly, during the interview that he didn’t know Epstein well, but he deceived the public. He claimed he didn’t know about his highly-publicized sex crimes. He even invited Epstein to Beatrice’s 18th birthday party in 2006, and an arrest warrant for sexual assault of a minor had been issued for Epstein earlier that year.
Prince Andrew: What Did He Know About Epstein?
Prince Andrew was friends with Epstein and this proves it by his words—“I admit fully that my judgment was probably colored by my tendency to be too honorable,” the prince said of traveling to New York in 2010 to visit Epstein after his prison release — which he claims was to break off their friendship in person. Even wilder, he claimed that Virginia Roberts, who alleged that she slept with him at Epstein’s mansion when she was just 17, wasn’t telling the truth because she noted he “sweated profusely.” That can’t be true, according to Andrew, because he allegedly contracted a medical condition while fighting in the Falklands War that limits his sweating.
The fact that Epstein, 66, so-called committed suicide in his jail cell in August 2019 after being indicted on sex trafficking of minors and conspiracy charges. Now the news broke that he was murdered and never committed suicide in the first place.
What's Next For Prince Andrew
What's next for Prince Andrew? The future is uncertain at this point.
Prince Andrew said that his former association with Epstein has become a disruption to his family's work. He stepped down on November 20 from his royal duties. It was an absolute disgrace to the royals.
When Princess Beatrice watched her Dad during the interview, it was an 'awkward' and somber moment. Beatrice has been in tears since that interview with her father.
Princess Beatrice and Eugenie will continue with royal engagements.
