Prince Andrew Quiz

Prince Andrew has been in the news recently – for all the wrong reasons! On November 20th 2019, he suspended his public duties following the negative reaction to his interview on Newsnight. The interview focused on Prince Andrew’s links to the convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, who committed suicide in August the same year, while in prison awaiting trial.
