Prince Andrew faces ‘disaster’
The Duke of York’s “car crash” Newsnight interview – in which he bizarrely claimed he doesn’t sweat – should warn him off giving evidence, Angela Levin says.
Writer Ms Levin, who has penned an authorised biography of Prince Harry, says Andrew had just three options to explore ahead of the civil case.
Speaking on talkRADIO this morning, Ms Levin said: “One was to ignore it, pretend it didn’t happen, he didn’t know anything about it.
“We’ve seen that hasn’t worked – it hasn’t gone away. He thought it would all disappear into the night. It hasn’t.
“The second one was to go to America and answer all the questions and nit-pick apart the accusations, which is quite dangerous.
“Remember how he was on Newsnight and then think of him on the stand, giving evidence.
“I think it would be a disaster for him.
“The third one is to try to worm out the fact that his accuser doesn’t have a case.”
