Prince Andrew insisted today it was far too soon to resume international travel to the US after the COVID-19 crisis.
He says we should all wait much longer, possibly as much as 25 years, before lifting travel restrictions.
The Duke of York made his announcement “out of concern for the welfare of British travellers”, insists a royal pal.
But sceptical royal watchers insist it has a lot more to do with the fact that cops in the US now want him to testify about his relationship with sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.
Royal biographer Lorraine Fisher, 34, said: “It might appear at first glance that Prince Andrew simply has our best welfare at heart.
“But it seems there may be a little more to his concern about travelling to the US than meets the eye.”
The Duke, speaking outside Pizza Express in Woking while waiting for it to reopen, has denied any wrongdoing.
