Prince Andrew latest news – Duke ‘asked BBC’s Emily Maitlis if he should talk about sweat issues before shock interview’


PRINCE Andrew asked the BBC whether he should discuss his sweating problems ahead of his bombshell interview, Emily Maitlis has revealed.

In 2019 the Duke of York gave an interview to the BBC about his relationship with Jeffrey Epstein, during which he discussed the sex abuse claims against himself which he attempted to debunk by claiming he was unable to sweat.

Today the BBC presenter who interviewed him, Emily Maitlis, wrote a blog revealing how Prince Andrew actually quizzed her on whether he should discussing the sweating issue when they say down to chat.

The news comes as Andrew’s fate hangs in the balance as a judge deliberates whether to throw out Virginia Roberts’ lawsuit against him.

On Tuesday, lawyers for the Duke argued in New York that Virginia Giuffre’s civil lawsuit should be dropped.

They claim a secret 2009 deal she made with billionaire paedophile Jeffrey Epstein exempts him from legal action.

Judge Kaplan said on Tuesday afternoon that he would come to a decision “pretty soon” on whether Virginia Giuffre’s civil case against Andrew can be dismissed.
