Buckingham Palace aides have reportedly reworded a nursery rhyme to mock Prince Andrew over his roughly $12 million settlement with former Jeffrey Epstein sex slave Virginia Roberts Giuffre.
“The grand old Duke of York, he had 12 million quid. He gave it to someone he’d never met, for something he never did,” the new spin on the nursery rhyme goes, insiders told the Sunday Times.
The lyrics refer to the disgraced royal’s infamous 2019 interview with the BBC in which he claimed to have “no recollection” of ever meeting Giuffre — despite a photo in which he was seen with his arm around the then-17-year-old at now-convicted madam Ghislaine Maxwell’s home.
The sum of the settlement will not be publicly disclosed, according to papers filed last week in Manhattan federal court, but a source has told The Post the estimated total is $12 million.
Andrew, long dubbed “Randy Andy,” said in an unsigned letter submitted as an attachment to the settlement that he accepts that Giuffre has suffered as an “established victim” of sex abuse but does not admit any wrongdoing.
The prince — who was stripped of his military and royal titles in January — has long maintained his innocence.
