Prince Andrew’s bizarre TV interview about his ties to convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein gobsmacked many Britons — but not renowned royal watcher Nigel Cawthorne.
Andrew vehemently denied to the BBC that he had ever sex with any of Epstein’s underage “slaves,” yet seemed unsympathetic toward the young women.
The prince’s performance fell in line for Cawthorne, who has written a new book about the youngest child of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip.
“Prince Andrew: The End of the Monarchy and Epstein,” coming out May 28, paints Andrew as a spoiled, indulged boy who grew to become an entitled, obnoxious man.
In an adaptation of the book in the Daily Mail, Cawthorne reveals Andrew had “seven nurseries in four palaces, endless sumptuous treats and far more of his mother’s attention” than his older brother, Charles, and sister Anne — and could even annoy his father with his high-handed manner.
One time, while the royal family was watching a popular British soap opera, Andrew shouted: “Oh God, look at all those common people” — to which Phillip shot back: “If it wasn’t for people like that, you would not be sitting here.”
