CAUSE Andrew was allegedly taunted by Palace aides, who taunted him with a rhyme following his sexual abuse, according to sources.
The stupidity, which is said to be run down in the royal family, emerged in the wake of Prince Andrew’s £12million sex abuse settlement with Virginia Giuffre.
Inspired by the childish tune, aides are said to have jokingly shared the lyrics: “Great Duke of York, he has 12 million songs.
“He gave it to someone he’d never met, for something he’d never done.”
Jibe mentions notoriety Night interview with the BBC’s Emily Maitlis in November 2019 – where Andrew said he had “no recollection” of ever meeting Ms Giuffre.
He also said he no longer remembers the famous photo of him with his arm around Miss Giuffre’s waist at Ghislaine Maxwell’s house.
Andrew also previously questioned whether it was his own hand in the image.
But despite his denials and sayings he never met Virginia, he settled the out-of-court sexual abuse case for the alleged £12m this week.
The Sunday Times also claimed that sources close to Andrew said he “really regrets that he was involved with Epstein”.
They added: “He deeply regrets it, especially for the impact it has had on his mother and his family.”
The same sources said the £12m payout figure was “millions”.
It is also reported that Andrew will be making a public appearance at a thanksgiving service for Prince Philip at Westminster Abbey on March 29.
The Queen will then decide whether he can attend future “family” events based on how distracted he is.
That includes her consecration at St Paul’s Cathedral on June 3, where Andrew will not have any official role.
This happened after it was reported that Andrew will use the family loan to fund his £12m financial settlement – after Charles convinced his disgraced brother to pay his sex abuse accuser.
Royal sources said the heir to the throne met the Queen last Tuesday at Windsor Castle and then wrote to his younger brother urging him to “see meaning”.
They fear Andy will be “skewed” by Virginia attorney David Boies like he was to Emily Maitlis in his gruesome Newsnight interview in November 2019, which prompted him to resign from public service.
According to sources close to the prince, the 61-year-old Duke of York is still waiting for the proceeds of his £17m Swiss chalet – with the sale expected to close. to “within weeks”.
That means Charles, 73, and the Queen, 95, will instead dip into their personal funds to ensure Andrew can make payments and make charitable contributions ahead of the March 17 deadline.
Andrew will be required to pay back his “bridging loan” as he settles his troubled finances.
The remarkable change comes just three weeks after Andrew asked for a New York sex abuse jury trial to declare the case “a marathon not a sprint.” .
