Piers Morgan has dubbed Prince Andrew a ‘snivelling little coward’ over his settlement with Virginia Giuffre, which The Queen will reportedly help him pay

Writing in his column for The Sun, the ex-Good Morning Britain host claimed the Royal’s denials about the case ‘weren’t worth the paper they were written on’. 

He penned: “He settled, revealing his supposed defiance to be a sham.

“We don’t know how much Andrew’s paid Giuffre, though it will be many millions of pounds – thought to be £12million – including a substantial donation to her charity in support of victims’ rights.

“But we do know that by paying a massive cheque to avoid a showdown in court, he’s confirmed himself to be a snivelling little coward whose denials and demands weren’t worth the paper they were written on.

“And we also know that by doing so, he has destroyed what’s left of his shattered reputation.”

The 56-year-old went on to say that the statement about the Duke of York’s case made him ‘puke,’ writing: There can be no way back to any form of public life for The Queen’s second, and some say favourite, son.

“He must be immediately stripped of all remaining titles and privileges that come with being a Prince and despatched to the ignominious obscurity that his appalling behaviour demands.”

Morgan was referring to the statement that reads: “It is known that Jeffrey Epstein trafficked countless young girls over many years.

“Prince Andrew regrets his association with Epstein and commends the bravery of Ms Giuffre and other survivors in standing up for themselves and others.

“He pledges to demonstrate his regret for his association with Epstein by supporting the fight against the evils of sex trafficking, and by supporting its victims.”

“Prince Andrew intends to make a substantial donation to Ms Giuffre’s charity in support of victims’ rights.”

It concluded by saying that the Royal had ‘never intended to malign Ms Giuffre’s character’.
