Prince Andrew has bowed to mounting pressure and resigned from his post as the U.K's Special Representative for International Trade and Investment.
The decision had looked increasingly inevitable over the last few days after it emerged that the Prince, fourth in line to the British throne, was friendly with a convicted sex offender, financier Jeffrey Epstein.
But, amazingly enough, it wasn't this controversial relationship that did for the Prince.
And it wasn't the news that Prince Andrew might have close personal links with Saif Gaddafi, son of the Libyan leader.
It wasn't even the claim that the Prince is a close friend of the convicted gun smuggler Tarek Kaituni.
No, it turns out that the straw that broke the camel's back for Prince Edward was the discovery that he's a lifelong fan of Black Lace, the duo responsible for the cringe worthy single "Agadoo".
Not only is the Prince a regular attender at the bleached blondes' concerts, but he's an honorary member of their fan club.
This particular character flaw was a step too far.
