Man calls Prince Andrew "a sick old man" during Queen Elizabeth's procession
"You're a sick old man"
Prince Andrew was heckled during his mother, Queen Elizabeth's procession in Edinburgh this afternoon.
The 62-year-old joined his siblings King Charles, Princess Anne, and Prince Edward for the somber event this afternoon.
As he walked behind his mother's coffin, a man yelled at the Duke of York.
The family was walking behind Queen Elizabeth's coffin when he yelled, "Andrew, you’re a sick old man" at the Andrew.
Officers quickly grabbed the man and pulled him out of the crowd.
They tackled the man to the ground as the family continued walking to Scotland's St Giles’ Cathedral.
According to The Express, the crowd started to chant "God Save the King" in a bid to drown out the man.
Prince Andrew stepped down as a working royal after he was accused of sexual assault.
Virginia Giuffre says she was sex trafficked to the disgraced royal by convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.
Giuffre says she was a minor when the prince attacked her in Maxwell's London home. She also claimed he assaulted her when she was an underage girl at locations in New York and the U.S Virgin Islands.
Prince Andrew had a close relationship with sex offenders Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell.
The sexual assault case was settled out of court in February 2022.
Andrew said he "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."
Giuffre said she was "regularly abused by Epstein and was lent out by Epstein to other powerful men for sexual purposes.”
She was also "forced to have sex with Prince Andrew at [Epstein’s] and Maxwell’s direction.”
