In November last year, Prince Andrew revealed he was stepping down for the “foreseeable future” in the wake of the Jeffrey Epstein scandal.

Why did he step down?

The royal confirmed he would no longer take on royal duties as he thought his relationship with the billionaire paedophile had caused “major disruption to his family’s work”.

He also said it caused disruption to “the valuable work” at the various organisations and charities he supports.

Andrew’s statement

He added: “I have asked Her Majesty if I may step back from public duties for the foreseeable future, and she has given her permission.

“I continue to unequivocally regret my ill-judged association with Jeffrey Epstein.

“His suicide has left many unanswered questions, particularly for his victims.

“I can only hope that, in time, they will be able to rebuild their lives. Of course, I am willing to help any appropriate law enforcement agency.”

In November 2019, Andrew appeared on Newsnight in an attempt to explain his friendship with Epstein.

He also denied ever meeting Virginia Giuffre, who accused him of having sex with her when she was a teen after being groomed by Epstein.
