Prince Andrew's charity office is leaving Buckingham Palace, the royal press office confirmed on Saturday.

"The Duke will continue to work on Pitch and will look at how he takes this forward outside of his public duties, and outside of Buckingham Palace," the palace said in a statement. "We recognize there will be a period of time while this transition takes place."

Prince Andrew Gets Candid, and Britain Is Appalled

  Prince Andrew Gets Candid, and Britain Is Appalled When members of the British royal family consent to warts-and-all television interviews about their troubled private lives, it generally has the effect of roiling the waters rather than calming them. So when Prince Andrew set out to explain his friendship with the financier and convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein in a BBC interview broadcast Saturday night, it backfired predictably.

Prince Andrew was also forced to cancel a planned trip to Bahrain with his Pitch@ Palace initiative as questions have been raised about whether he Buckingham Palace did not confirm he had cut his ties to the organization, but said that going forward “he is looking at how to take Pitch forward outside

The office of Pitch@Palace, Andrew's charity that connects entrepreneurs with companies, was located inside the palace, but will now continue unaffiliated and simply be called "Pitch," the Telegraph reports. The charity's financial backers have been abandoning ship since news of the royal's relationship with Epstein became public. Barclays, KPMG, Standard Chartered, and Inmarsat, have all pulled out, the London Times reports.

Esptein owned a money management firm that purported to only take on clients with at least $1 billion in wealth. A New Yorker investigation found that Epstein secured at least $7.5 million in donations to MIT's influential Media Lab from clients Bill Gates and Leon Black.

Organizations distance themselves from Prince Andrew after interview defending relationship with Jeffrey Epstein

  Organizations distance themselves from Prince Andrew after interview defending relationship with Jeffrey Epstein The University of Huddersfield, Outward Bound and AstraZeneca are among those reviewing their links to the prince.Andrew’s close ties with Epstein, who hanged himself in a New York prison cell in August, already cost him one job years ago. Andrew quit as a trade envoy for the United Kingdom in 2011, after a photo of him strolling with Epstein in Central Park caused a media furor and raised questions about his judgment.

The fallout from Prince Andrew 's bombshell BBC interview continues. According to The Times of London, the royal is moving his private office out of Buckingham Palace amid the backlash over his ties to late financier Jeffrey Epstein. Buckingham Palace said in a statement that the Duke of York

DISGRACED Prince Andrew has been forced to move his office from Buckingham Palace , just days after he was sacked from Royal duties. According to The Times, The Duke of York was told that he would have to clear his staff and find a new office to continue his work elsewhere.

Epstein died in a Manhattan prison in August and his death has been ruled a suicide. Andrew stayed in Epstein's home after he was convicted of sexual offenses in 2008. The royal has since apologized for staying with Epstein after his conviction, but has continued to face intense scrutiny over the relationship and his alleged sexual assault made possible by Epstein.

Virginia Giuffre, 35, has claimed she was sex-trafficked by Epstein to Andrew, among other powerful men, and sexually assaulted by the royal when she was 17-years-old. Andrew has adamantly denied the assault — or ever meeting Giuffre —despite a photo that shows Andrew with his arm around a young Giuffre.

During his BBC interview, Andrew defended his relationship with Epstein and failed to express sympathy for his many alleged victims. Public scrutiny will likely intensify after Giuffre's own interview with the BBC airs on Monday Dec. 2, The Associated Press reports.
