How Royal Family Could Face ‘Absolute Tinderbox’ After Prince Andrew’s Retirement

The Royal Family has been slowly recovering from the fallout of the unprecedented interview Prince Andrew gave BBC Newsnight last month over his connection to disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein.

The Duke of York is believed to have met Epstein for the first time in 1999 to then meet on several occasions through the years – even after the billionaire was first convicted for charges of soliciting for prostitution and procuring minors for prostitution. Prince Andrew has since been forced to resign from royal duties due to the backlash the interview caused but Daily Mirror’s Royal Editor Russell Myers warned the Royal Family could soon face an “absolute tinderbox” should Epstein’s former partner and Andrew’s friend, Ghislaine Maxwell, agree to talk about her side of the story.
