It will never be too early or too late for a drama, most especially if it originated from the Royal Palace.
When people hear the words "car crash" and "Royal Family" together, it is obvious that they will remember what happened to Princess Diana in 1997. However, someone got up to break the trending list records.
Prince Andrew received backslash for agreeing to what turned out to be a TV interrogation about him and the Jeffrey Epstein scandal and for telling lies throughout the BBC interview.
The Duke of York denied sexual impropriety and his ties to pedophile Epstein, who took his life at the age of 66 even before facing his sex-trafficking charges.
Prince Andrew once again denied the claims made by Virginia Roberts Giuffre, who reportedly became a sex slave of the now-deceased Epstein. Giuffre revealed that she was forced to have sex with politicians, businessmen and Prince Andrew, which became the most-talked matter related to trafficking cases.
In the same interview, the Duke of York referred to all trafficking-related crimes as "unbecoming" and said later on that he did not regret being friends with Epstein.
Furthermore, Prince Andrew directly denied his reported meeting with Giuffre at Tramp Nightclub in London in 2001, where they allegedly had sex for the first time. Prince Andrew told the interviewer that the 2001 allegation did not happen since he took Princess Beatrice to Pizza Express that day -- although people did not buy his alibi.
Through "60 Minutes Australia", Giuffre publicized that she was trafficked and forced by Epstein to the "elite of the world." She also held a photo of her and Prince Andrew, which was taken in 2001, as proof of her story's authenticity.
"Prince Andrew should go to jail. I mean, is he ever going to? Probably not," Giuffre stated.
In 2015, Giuffre released court claims proving her allegations, but the Royal Palace defended the prince and denied the non-sense claims four years ago.
A Different Crash?
People who watched Prince Andrew's interview called it as a slow-motion crash.
A long-time Royal Family Supporter and Royal Central website editor Charlie Proctor expressed his frustration over the scorn-worthy answers by the Prince.
"I expected a train wreck. That was a plane crashing into an oil tanker, causing a tsunami, triggering a nuclear explosion level bad," Proctor wrote in a tweet.
Royal biographers and experts also conveyed their dismay regarding the decision of Prince Andrew to speak publicly about his relationship with Epstein.
"Unfortunately it was a sign of his arrogance. He has always been arrogant. The Queen's motto is don't complain don't explain. I think in her heart she will be extremely embarrassed," Royal biographer Angela Levin said about the "ill-judged" interview.
The departure of a senior member of the royal press team two weeks ago also proved how pompous Prince Andrew is.
Former BBC royal correspondent Jennie Bond compared the interview with what Princess Diana gave to Panorama two years before her death, but this one by Prince Andrew was even worse.
The Royal Family has sure been involved in numerous headline-worthy about "crashes" since 1997. This interview might already be the worst, but it could also be just a tip of what lies ahead.
A more controversial crash soon, maybe?
