Following the relinquishing of their royal titles, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex received a warm endorsement from Harry’s uncle, Prince Andrew, last night.
Speaking to newsmen from the holiday isle of Mustique, where he has been laying somewhat low since being linked to dead paedophile, Jeffrey Epstein, Andrew said: “Now look here, nobody likes this sort of scandal. It puts the royal family in a very poor light indeed.
“I dread to think of the effect all this is having on my mother.
“However, I have to say that, in this instance, giving up their royal privileges was the very least they could do, and I’m glad they’ve had the common decency to do so.
“I have a small inkling of what they have been going through, due to my own, very minor, issue with underage girls and my friendship with the convicted paedophile chappie and his links to human trafficking, but nothing on this scale.
“I wish them well in the future, although I won’t be having any contact after this rather shameful business.
“I mean to say, one does have one’s own moral standing to consider doesn’t one?”
Harry and Meghan will be reunited in Canada later this week and will spend a few weeks there along with baby Archie, while the Daily Mail and The Express feverishly try to work out how to castigate them over their relinquishing of their titles and repayment of the £3 million of taxpayers money used to refurbish their Frogmore Cottage home.
