Many thousands of words have been written about the art of crisis management in recent days, but for operatives on the ground there is always one over-riding objective; not to get left carrying the can.

Since the interview hit the airwaves, both have been fighting to kick the other into the PR sewer.

Prince Andrew, Duke of York wearing a suit and tie: Prince Andrew's association with late convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein has finally caught up to him: the Duke of York is officially stepping back from royal duties.Of course, the controversy that surrounds the Queen's son is not solely about this friendship. Virginia Giuffre, one of Epstein's accusers, has claimed that she was forced to have sex with Prince Andrew three times.This is by no means, however, the first scandal of this proportion to rock the British royal family. In this gallery, take a look at the dark secrets they'd rather hadn't got out.

The Mail’s diarist Sebastian Shakespeare says that “Fergie and Beatrice both cautioned him against doing the program, while his then private secretary Amanda Thirsk was more gung-ho, thinking it could offer him a chance to draw a line under his association with Jeffrey Epstein.”

Shakespeare quotes a source as saying: “Princess Beatrice and Sarah both advised Andrew against going ahead with the interview… However, he paid too much attention to Amanda, who was encouraging him, saying it would clear his name.”

The Mail vests much confidence in the fact that Fergie “did not attend the meeting with the BBC Newsnight team and was abroad when details of the interview were being finalized.”

The pro-Thirsk camp have sought to promulgate a theory that Fergie encouraged Andrew to do the interview, in a bid to clear the air ahead of Beatrice’s wedding to property developer Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi next year.

According to this reading of events, Fergie deputized Beatrice to stand in for her when she was overseas, which is how, as everyone agrees, Beatrice and Thirsk both attended a meeting with the Newsnight team at Buckingham Palace to discuss the scope of the interview.

That’s all.”

Well, yes, but at that one meeting it was finally agreed Andrew would do the interview.

Thirsk and the Yorks can cast all the aspersions on each other they want but the simple truth is that, whoever’s idea it was in the first place, neither of them actually stopped it.

The American socialite was a two-time divorcee and when Edward proposed, there was social and political uproar. The Church of England forbade him from marrying a divorced woman, and he was forced to abdicate the throne. This massive royal scandal changed the line of succession entirely, ultimately, pre-determining that 10-year-old Princess Elizabeth would become the future Queen of England.Getty Images
