Prince Harry talked about the involvement of Prince Andrew with the late convicted paedophile Jeffrey Epstein and labelled it a “shameful scandal.”
Prince Harry Commented On Prince Andrew’s Assault Scandal
The husband of Meghan Markle addressed the topic in his explosive memoir called Spare, which made Prince Harry the very first member of the royal family to speak publicly about the allegations Prince Andrew faced.
Most, if not all, royal fans can recall that the father of Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie settled a lawsuit against him from Virginia Giuffre, an American woman who claimed Jeffrey Epstein trafficked her and alleged Prince Andrew had sexually assaulted her when she was still a minor.
The uncle of Prince Harry has vehemently denied the allegations and did not accept any liability as part of the settlement. The subject was raised in the controversial memoir of Prince Harry in relation to his security arrangements after he and Meghan stepped away from their roles as senior working royals.
Prince Harry Talked About The Removal Of His Family’s Royal Security
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been in a row with the royal family and the British government over the arrangements of their security. In Spare, the Duke of Sussex divulged that when his wife asked him whether their protection would ever be removed, he said:
“Never. Not in this climate of hate. And not after what happened to my mother."
Prince Harry, as per Daily Mail, added:
“Also, not in the wake of my Uncle Andrew. He was embroiled in a shameful scandal, accused of the sexual assault of a young woman, and no one had so much as suggested that he lose his security. Whatever grievances people had against us, sex crimes weren’t on the list.”
No other member of the royal family has ever talked publicly about Prince Andrew, who is no longer using his HRH title and lost his military titles in 2022.
After Prince Harry and Meghan Markle moved to America, they stopped receiving security services provided by the Firm.
King Charles reportedly provided financial assistance to help cover the cost of the royal couple’s private security in the United States. However, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were left to cover at least some of the multi-million-pound expense themselves.
