Prince Andrew already secured a near permanent position in the headlines after his alleged involvement with Jeffrey Epstein came out, now it seems his past tussle with Palace guards, over being denied access to enter the Palace, has come to light.
A source recently came forward to reveal one of Prince Andrew’s past spats from as early as 2013. The source reiterated Prince Andrew’s exchange of words with a Palace guard who denied him entrance.
During their interview with the Daily Mirror, the source began by saying, “He was incredibly, incredibly angry. It was very much a case of guns being pointed at him and ‘halt who goes there.’”
During the course of their verbal spat, the prince asked enquired, “Don’t you know who I am?” and reportedly “made his thoughts plain” during the heated bashing.
The source added it got pretty heated because he just kept repeating himself ‘Don’t you know who I am?’ He felt the officers had sneaked up on him and believed they had behaved disrespectfully towards him.
“He gave them a proper dressing down, shouting at them like a schoolteacher before he walked back to the main house – completely livid.”
Later, Prince Andrew issued a statement claiming, “The police have a difficult job to do balancing security for the Royal Family and deterring intruders, and sometimes they get it wrong. I am grateful for their apology and look forward to a safe walk in the garden in the future.”
