No one in my real life can be bothered.

We have the same problem! LOL My daughters know a little about Diana/Charles and their boys...only because I've talked about it...but they have little interest in them. My son and his wife have lived in Germany 3 years and been several places in Europe (to include Ireland and England) could care less about any royalty unless you are talking about long past history. Where did I go wrong as a parent?

Its pretty much the same in my real life. I rarely if ever hear anyone taling about the RF except for an occasional usually dismissive comment...

I truly don't understand why they let her continue with Andrew's Pitch-program. She has shown to be not very understanding of Andrew's position and how to go about that; not the best person to be the keyperson in his new semi-job.

"The Home Office is said to be recommending a major downgrade of security for the Duke of York after he withdrew from public duties, it has been claimed."

More aptly fit would be his golf caddies. Or golf ball washers. Or golf cart drivers. Or....

But seriously, if Andrew is no longer working, he shouldn't have security around the clock.

"The Met Police have come under fire after refusing to reveal where the royal's protection team was on the day Virginia Giuffre - who was trafficked by paedophile Jeffrey Epstein - claimed to have had sex with Andrew when she was 17. The Duke of York said he was at Pizza Express in Woking."

I’m not surprised. A request like that, from the Mirror, was always going to be rejected.

Elsewhere it reads like this:"The infamous UK Police department Scotland Yard is refusing to reveal Prince Andrew’s location on the night that he is accused of being with Virginia Giuffre, one of the young girls trafficked by Jeffrey Epstein who was underage at the time she claims the Duke had sex with her."

"In a statement responding to the inquiry, Scotland Yard said that revealing information about the disgraced prince’s whereabouts on the night in question could “undermine the safeguarding of national security,” according to the Sun."

It would allow those with a criminal intent to gain an operational advantage over the MPS and place those who the MPS have confirmed are afforded protection, as well as protection officers, and members of the public at risk,” the statement continued."

"US federal prosecutors and the FBI have asked to interview Prince Andrew about the deceased sex offender Jeffrey Epstein but he has not responded, said Geoffrey Berman, US attorney for the southern district of New York, on Monday."

Well, that’s pretty credible, a statement from a US atty. in the district that was prosecuting Epstein. My guess would be the FBI/US Atty.’s office are interested in learning about Andrew’s good friend Ghislaine Maxwell.

So Andrew’s been avoiding the FBI? That’s serious. If he as innocent as people love to claim then why isn’t he cooperating like the palace claimed he would?

Perhaps Andrew feels that he should be "honorable" and not rat out and snitch on his good friend, Ghislaine.

It's all nice and good that he's been supporting the Queen during Megxit, but it would help even more if he would cooperate with prosecutors - like he promised - so that his mother wouldn't have to suffer (and the BRF overall) even more.

Which makes him on par with good old fashioned gangsters, but even they turned rat, lol

The palace also avoiding answering the royal correspondents about this. The jokes truly write themselves? Think we getting another summit?

I suspect Andrew promised to cooperate because he arrogantly believed they’d never dare question him. They tried, he and/or his legal advisors resisted most likely thinking the fact he was asked and did not cooperate would not become public knowledge, and now the US atty. has made Andrew’s resistance public knowledge.
I assume this means Andrew will not be visiting the USA in the near future.

Andrew should allow himself to be interviewed, the fact he "might" be obstructing the interview process after openly admitting to effectively want to be interviewed does not look good in any light.

However, I take issue with Buckingham Palace being required to comment on something when Andrew is no longer a working royal, he has no offices at BP and he should have a PR person talking for him from his office. Don't tie in BP and therefore The Queen when there's no need.
