Piers Morgan, 56, could be labelled an avid Royalist, often voicing his support for the Queen and other members of the Royal Family, but he feared for her health amid the scandal surrounding Prince Andrew. Her Majesty is still carrying out her royal duties at the impressive age of 95, and the former Good Morning Britain presenter branded it “outrageous” that she is being “dragged into” the disgraceful situation allegedly involving her son.
It’s an outrageous, totally unacceptable situation
In his latest column for The Sun, he unleashed his fury about the “snivelling little coward”.
He penned: “The prospect of Her Majesty being dragged into this repulsive sewer at the age of 95, with all the salacious global headlines that would have inevitably ensued, was an outrageous, totally unacceptable situation which could have inflicted terminal damage on the Monarchy.
“So, he’s thrown in the towel and doled out the dollars to get himself off the rap, which at least will spare his poor mother, his family, and the country, any more of this deeply unedifying saga.
“But let’s be very clear: for a senior member of the Royal Family to pay a small fortune to settle a case involving alleged sexual abuse of a minor is the most serious scandal to hit the Monarchy in modern times.
“And the court of public opinion has swiftly concluded that by buying off his accuser, Andrew’s shown that once again, it’s one rule for the rich and powerful, another for the rest of them.”
He went on to make it very clear that there’s “no going back” from this drama and “Andrew’s now finished”.
The prince was stripped of his royal titles and Piers called for the rest to be removed with immediate effect.
“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,” the TV star stated.
It comes after he reportedly reached a “settlement in principle” with Virginia Giuffre, in the civil sex claim filed in the US, according to court documents.
Ms Giuffre had been suing the Duke of York over claims he sexually assaulted her on three occasions when she was 17, something he has repeatedly denied.
A letter submitted to the United States District Court on Tuesday showed the parties had reached a “settlement in principle” of an undisclosed sum, which is reported to be substantial.
After news reports began to circulate, Piers was among those who weighed in on the settlement.
He tutted: “By paying a massive cheque to avoid a showdown in court, [Andrew]’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.”
In the document written by Ms Giuffre’s lawyer, David Boies, and Andrew’s lawyers, it was stated the duke would make a “substantial donation” to Ms Giuffre’s charity which supports victims rights.
It also said Prince Andrew “regrets his association with Jeffrey Epstein” and “commended” the bravery of Ms Giuffre and “other survivors”.
“Forgive me while I puke,” responded Piers.
