THAILAND-ASEAN-SUMMIT

A leading Royal correspondent has told LBC that the decision to allow Prince Andrew to take part in his disastrous interview will have damaged The Queen.

Speaking to Nick Ferrari, Royal correspondent said: "This interview was his attempt to convince us a) that he didn't have sex with this woman Virginia Roberts three times, he said that three times in this interview.

"But also more importantly for us, the public, to forgive him for yet another lacks of judgement.

"I suspect today, we will see coming out of Buckingham Palace what will be Operation Protect The Queen. I suspect there will be briefings suggesting that she didn't [know]. "But I think that's shutting the stable door after the horse has bolted."

"The evidence is from Emily Maitlis, the interviewer, who has said twice now that this went 'higher up'. When Prince Andrew talks about 'higher up', he's not talking about the Queen's Private Secretary or the Master of the Household. He's talking about his mother, The Queen.

"That's important, because that shows that her judgement is also being questioned for allowing her residence, Buckingham Palace, to be used for this.
