Prince Andrew has been called out for being a “vampire” for his move to sit down for his BBC Newsnight interview in November 2019.
PR expert Niki Christoff said on the Royally Obsessed podcast: "We know that his communications advisers didn't want him to do it," she said.
"One of them resigned before he even did the interview, so they were telling him what I would have told him which is, 'say nothing.'
"But Prince Andrew has, respectfully, the self-awareness of a vampire. He is not empathetic. His demeanour is not remorseful. He does not have any goodwill. So everything he says backfires.
"His team, I'm sure, was watching through their fingers. I was watching through my fingers. I couldn't believe it.”
