Simples. The point of the article is to make money by taking advantage of recent events and revived interest in Randy Andy to sell newspapers (or newspaper advertising - however it works in the digital age) by dredging up and printing an old story about something that was ostensibly perfectly legal if perhaps a bit iffy.

Recent reporting has blurred the lines between what is truly illegal activity and actions that, depending on your own point of view, are simply inappropriate/sleazy/immoral. And of course there are other issues like holding a person guilty by association.

Andrew's only real "crimes" may be a highly developed sense of entitlement, arrogance, a lack of empathy, a tendency to ignore servants or other people he deems unworthy of his attention, a fondness for liaisons with young women, a tendency to not commit to memory (or to quickly forget) those liaisons when they are with young women in the "unworthy of my attention" category, and a tendency to terminological inexactitude about the foregoing if he deems it warranted.

Looks like Andrew’s Pitch @ the Palace has moved.
I’m not sure if Andrew is still involved w/ his Pitch@the palace scheme & also I’m not sure that it’s appropriately named since there doesn’t seem to be any ‘palace’ involved anymore.
If Andrew shows up at its’ events in China & the Middle East, then we’ll know that he’s still a part of the organization I suppose.

I'm not surprised. This was one genuinely good initiative from Andrew so it'll be a shame if it has to stop completely. Perhaps it could be changed to just "Pitch" and obviously run under someone different?

The last that I've heard is that it has been renamed Pitch and will be headed up by Amanda Thirsk, Andrew's former private secretary, as CEO.

According to the following article from December, Pitch@Palace CIC was being wound up, whereas the directors of Pitch@Palace Global wanted the Duke of York to step away.

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/201...-quit-project/

Quote:
Pitch@Palace CIC, which is based in Buckingham Palace, is being wound up after trustees concluded it had no future in the wake of the Jeffrey Epstein scandal.

But the Duke is refusing to give up its sister company Pitch@Palace Global, prompting three of its directors to offer their resignations.

While Pitch@Palace CIC is a non-profit-making company and is controlled by the Prince Andrew Charitable Trust, the overseas arm Pitch@Palace Global is owned by the Duke himself and was set up to make profits by brokering deals between tech start-ups and wealthy investors.

[...]

The companies had also raised concerns that the Duke was mixing his charitable work with his business interests. Auditors advised the Duke and his team that Pitch@Palace Global, established to earn money from tech investments abroad, was too closely linked to Pitch@Palace CIC.
As a result, directors who sat on both boards were ordered to choose one or the other, resulting in a stream of resignations from each in early November. The Daily Telegraph can reveal that the directors urged the Duke to step away from the project, which he founded in 2014. They initially assumed he would go but the Duke has clung on to the initiative.
