On Wednesday, Andrew announced he was stepping back from public duties "for the foreseeable future" after a humiliating BBC interview in which he defended his friendship with Epstein and denied the charge he had sex with an underage girl in NY.

Under-fire royal Prince Andrew has cut ties with a children and young people's charity. "We have always said there would be a period of transition", the spokeswoman says.

The royal's words did little to ease the suffering of victims and he is expected to face charges in any case he is found to be involved in "as the Federal Bureau of Investigation and lawyers for some of Epstein's alleged victims wanted to talk to him under oath". "The series of events will now be known simply as "Pitch" and will continue to be run by the Duke's former private secretary Amanda Thirsk", the outlet said.


But it appears that his tarnished reputation left Andrew with little choice but to step back from any leadership roles, private or public.

The RPO announced its decision to part company with the Duke of York in an official statement this afternoon, saying that the Prince will cease being Patron "with immediate effect". "The RPO would like to express its gratitude to His Royal Highness for his support of the Orchestra over the past 15 years".

It has also been reported Buckingham Palace was disturbed by the mention of Andrew's relationship with Epstein in the ITV election debate on Tuesday.


Ms Thirsk can even tackle the Duke of York Sharp Digital Endeavor Award after the duke stop his lifestyles as a working royal on Wednesday. The Times said senior aides and the Prince of Wales advised the Queen that Andrew should be withdrawn from public life after concerns the scandal was overshadowing the democratic process.

In a statement, the pharmaceutical giant said: "Our three-year partnership with Pitch@Palace is due to expire at the end of this year and is now being reviewed".
