Prince Andrew’s relationship with Jeffrey Epstein cost him his royal patronages and his honorary military roles, including Colonel of the Grenadier Guards.
Virginia Roberts Guiffre alleged Andrew had sexually abused her and received a multimillion-dollar settlement but Andrew has denied the allegations.
As Andrew was walking in the procession of his mother, Queen Elizabeth’s coffin through Scotland, a heckler shouted at the Prince, “Andrew, you’re a sick old man.” Some in the crowd were not pleased and got physical with the heckler before police can be seen dragging him away.
“Powerful men should not be allowed to commit sexual crimes and get away with it,’ the young heckler said later.
Guiffre claimed that when she was 17, Andrew assaulted her at Epstein’s home.
“I am holding Prince Andrew accountable for what he did to me,” Guiffre said earlier.
“The powerful and rich are not exempt from being held responsible for their actions.
“I hope that other victims will see that it is possible not to live in silence and fear, but to reclaim one’s life by speaking out and demanding justice.
“I did not come to this decision lightly.
“As a mother and a wife, my family comes first — and I know that this action will subject me to further attacks by Prince Andrew and his surrogates — but I knew if I did not pursue this action, I would be letting them and victims everywhere down.”
“I can absolutely categorically tell you it never happened,” Prince Andrew said earlier.
“I have no recollection of ever meeting this lady, none whatsoever.”
