Royal Family fans saying the same thing about 'disgusting' Prince … – The Sun

A MUSICAL following the life of Prince Andrew aired via Channel 4 on Thursday, leaving Royal Family fans in shock.
The satirical show, titled Prince Andrew: The Musical, looked back on the life of the controversial duke leaving many royals fans baffled as to why it was produced in the first place.
Taking to social media, one tweeted: "I’m sorry but this @Channel4 musical about #PrinceAndrew is disgusting."
While another added: "Even as a joke/satire, come on. No one wants to see anything about him on TV."
And a third penned: "I hope everyone involved in that Prince Andrew musical on channel 4 is so mortified with themselves. Yes even the runners."

Camilla, 75, is said to have become Charles III’s “strength and stay” – the term used by the late Queen to describe Prince Philip – during his first 100 days as king.
The Queen Consort has become a “wise sounding board” for the monarch – and is also one of the few people who will “stand up to him”.
A source said: “It's taken quite a while to get there, but many people who once thought that Camilla was the problem have come to see that she is actually part of the solution.”
Camilla is set to drop the term ‘Consort’ from her title and become known simply as ‘Queen’, it emerged on Fridau.
She will be called Queen Camilla after King Charles’ Coronation at Westminster Abbey in May, it was reported.
And Prince William and Kate’s son Prince Louis, four, is likely to inherit the Duke of Edinburgh title from his late great-grandfather, Prince Philip.
Many courtiers have stopped using the term ‘Consort’ when referring to Camilla, 75, it was claimed.
A source told the Daily Mail: “Some have dropped the 'Consort' already — it's worth noting that she now has 'Queen's Companions' instead of ladies-in-waiting — but there's no fixed plan. People will just find themselves saying it naturally.”
King Charles on Saturday led Britain's tributes to former pope Benedict XVI, who has died aged 95, praising his efforts to "promote peace" between Catholic and Protestant communities.
The king acknowledged the former pontiff's "constant efforts to promote peace and goodwill to all people, and to strengthen the relationship between the global Anglican Communion and the Roman Catholic Church," adding he received the news with "deep sadness."
Champions of sport and the community top King Charles's first New Year's Honours list.
Three Scots footie stars are being handed MBEs as Queen rocker Brian May, 75, is knighted.
Captain of The Scottish national team, Andy Robertson, is rewarded for services to football, charity and young people.
The Liverpool ace, 28, originally of Giffnock near Glasgow, has earned 60 caps with Scotland and won the Champions League and English Premier League with the Reds.
In 2020, ex-Queen's Park and Dundee United player Robertson launched AR26, giving kids "equal access to training, support and job opportunities".
He said at the time: "I recognise I am in a fortunate position in which I can use my voice and connections to influence change."
Footie aces Jen Beattie and Kim Little also netted MBEs.
Noreen Riols, one of the last surviving female members of the French section of the Special Operations Executive – known as "Churchill's Secret Army" – has dedicated her MBE to the memory of her late "comrades".
As a member of the British espionage and sabotage organisation, Mrs Riols, 96, trained agents ahead of their deployment to occupied France.
She is named in the overseas section of the New Years Honours list for her services to UK/France relations and Second World War education.
The published author of some 10 books told the PA news agency: "I am thrilled to bits. It is a great surprise but I am thrilled to bits."
She added: "I would like to dedicate it to the memory of those comrades of mine in SOE. It isn't really my honour. I share it with my comrades in the SOE."
Born in Malta to English parents, Mrs Riols joined the SOE aged 18 in 1943 because she spoke fluent French.
England women's record goalscorer Ellen White said she was both lucky and honoured to end a "crazy" year by becoming an MBE.
White, who scored 52 goals in 113 England appearances, retired as a player in August after helping the Lionesses to Euro 2022 glory and announced she was pregnant earlier this month.
The 33-year-old former Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester City striker told the PA news agency: "It's been a crazy year to be honest.
"We obviously had an incredible summer with the Euros and then to announce my retirement, then announcing me and my husband were going to have a baby and then to top it all off, ending the year with an MBE.
"So it's been an incredible year and I feel really lucky and honoured."
England captain Leah Williamson was made an OBE while White's other team-mates Lucy Bronze and Beth Mead also became MBEs.
Lionesses head coach Sarina Wiegman was also made a CBE on the Overseas List.
A journalist who was sued by Russian oligarch Roman Abramovich over claims of his close relationship with Vladimir Putin has been made an MBE.
Catherine Belton, the author of Putin's People, has urged the Government to introduce a law to tackle strategic lawsuits against public participation (Slapps), which see wealthy individuals or organisations launch costly cases against critics.
Ms Belton and HarperCollins settled a defamation case with Mr Abramovich after her book included Russian billionaire Sergei Pugachev's claims that Mr Abramovich purchased Chelsea football club in 2003 at Putin's command.
It was one of several lawsuits the author and publishers faced from Russian billionaires as well as oil company Rosneft.
Speaking to the PA news agency about being made an MBE in the wake of the cases, Ms Belton said: "It's really incredible.
"You couldn't really have a greater contrast between now and last year when we were just emerging from a really bruising settlement with Roman Abramovich.
"It was the end of the year when we'd faced four legal cases from four Russian billionaires and one from the Kremlin's oil company.
"It was so stressful and I was so grateful to Harper Collins for standing behind me and fighting them all the way but at the end of it, we had to reach a settlement with Roman Abramovich."
Actor and broadcaster David Harewood has said he has accepted becoming an OBE on behalf of other people whose contributions to society have gone unnoticed.
The 57-year-old, who found fame in US drama series Homeland, has been named on the New Year Honours list for services to drama and charity after he became a prominent voice for mental health support and against racism.
Harewood told his Instagram followers on Saturday that it is "one of those days" when the "ground shifts" beneath him as he combines the different elements of his black British identity.
He added: "An award from a new King should be cause for massive celebration, and yet already I hear the chorus of self defeating voices rattling around my head, thoughts of 'Empire' and subjugation confusing the picture and again shifting the earth underneath.
"I stop for a moment and think of all the others whose contributions have gone unnoticed and unpaid for and accept this award on their behalf, and continue to speak truth to power whenever and wherever I see the need."
In various documentaries, Harewood has explored racism and mental health.
In 2019, he created a one-off BBC documentary titled Psychosis And Me, which saw him retrace his steps and delve into his breakdown after being sectioned aged 23.
The acclaimed actor later backed the launch of a new online platform, (Just ask a question) – which helps prevent people with mental health problems "reaching crisis stage" – by founder Danny Gray, who previously appeared on Dragons' Den.
Essex-born Sir Grayson, who calls himself a "tranny potter", often explores fashion, conformity and prejudice in his work and appears in public as his female alter-ego, Claire.
He also explained his knighthood is "extra special" as him being named in the New Year's Honours List is about his achievements, not class.
He said: "I'm very flattered and honoured and coming from a kind of working-class background, it kind of feels like…I'm definitely on a winning streak.
"(The knighthood) feels extra special, because it's about what I've achieved, I suppose, rather than any class position I hold.
"It's not necessarily a smooth fit, but I quite like that.
"I think it's very cool that they've given it to me because you know, I could be a liability."
Sir Grayson last night told his followers on Instagram, while posting a picture of himself wearing a medieval knight costume, that he was not "quite ready" for the news.
Sir Grayson Perry has said he never considered turning down his knighthood because "it's more interesting to be inside the tent and you can have more fun".
The 62-year-old artist, writer and broadcaster – known for his tapestries, ceramic works and cross-dressing – has been made a Knight Bachelor for services to the arts.
Speaking to Channel 4 News about his honour, Sir Grayson was asked if he had considered turning it down, to which he replied: "No, I mean, I've always been very much of the opinion that it's more interesting to be inside the tent and you can have more fun."
However, he said the knighthood will not stop him from being a "rebel".
"Nowadays, we live in an age where there's a lot of injustices on all sides," he said.
"And I think that might be my job, I always think of myself as an equal opportunity piss-taker."
Ex-footballer and broadcaster Chris Kamara received an MBE (Member of the Order of the British Empire) in the New Year Honour list 2023.
Kamara has been awarded for services to football, as well as his charity and anti-racism work.
Chris had to step down from the majority of his broadcasting jobs due to his health after being diagnosed with apraxia of speech and an underactive thyroid.
He turned 65 on Christmas day.

With King Charles aiming to create a slimmed-down monarchy, the royal family roles are expecting a lot of change that will affect the younger generation of The Firm.
This includes the youngest child of Prince William and Kate – Prince Louis – who might receive a title which held a significant connection to the late Queen.
Looking into the future of Prince Louis, when he one day marries, he might inherit the role of the Duke of York which is currently held by Prince Andrew.
While Prince Andrew is still alive, the title will belong to him.
The Duke of York title is given to the monarch’s second-eldest son, so when Prince William becomes King and if the title is vacant, Prince Louis will take hold of it.
Whether someone gets an honour is decided by the honours committee.
Honours committees are made up of both senior civil servants and people who are independent of government with an independent chairperson.
All nominees are checked by various government departments to make sure they're suitable for honour and this may include checks by HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) before their recommendations are passed on to the Prime Minister, and then the King.
Once all recipients have been decided and checks have been completed, the Central Chancery of the Orders of Knighthood at St James's Palace then arranges for the recipients to be presented with their medals by the King or other members of the Royal Family.
New year's honours are judged on a number of achievements such as:
The honours system recognises individual achievements such as the ones above, in fields including:
To receive an honour, the recipient must still be actively involved in what you’re nominating them for.
The only honours which can be awarded after someone’s death are gallantry awards.
The honours system recognises people from all walks of life who have made achievements in public life and/or committed themselves to serving and helping the UK.
Any British national or citizen of the 15 Commonwealth realms can be nominated for honours in the British honours system.
This could be anyone, regardless of if they are in the public eye, can be recognised for their service and contribution to their respective fields in the UK and abroad.
The New Year Honours is a part of the British honours system, with New Year's Day being marked by naming new members of orders of chivalry and recipients of other official honours.
Some other Commonwealth realms also mark this day in this way, marking the achievements and service of extraordinary people across the Commonwealth.
The awards are presented by or in the name of the reigning monarch, King Charles or his vice-regal representative, which has often been filled by the Prince of Wales.
British honours are also published in supplements to the London Gazette each year.
A mobile advert plugging Channel 4's Prince Andrew: The Musical was displayed at Woking Pizza Express last week.
The Duke of York said he took daughter Beatrice to a party there in 2001 on the day Virginia Giuffre claims she first met and had sex with him.
A van bearing the slogan "If you miss it, you'd better have a decent alibi" drove around the Surrey diner.
The musical was shown from 9pm last night.
It was described as a satirical send-up and included Andrew's 2019 interview with BBC Newsnight's Emily Maitlis in which he gave the alibi.
Kieran Hodgson plays Andrew and Emma Sidi is Ms Maitlis.
Andrew settled his US sex assault case with Ms Giuffre out of court in February. The agreement was not an admission of guilt and he has always denied her allegations.
Queen Consort Camilla, 75, took her five grandchildren to the ABBA Voyage virtual gig in Stratford three days before Christmas, according to the Daily Mail.
Amazingly, none of the audience recognised her, even though she was reportedly dancing in the stands.
Camilla is understood to be a fan of the Swedish supergroup and attended a fundraising royal gala performance of Mamma Mia! with King Charles in 2004.
Prince Harry will be tough on William and Kate in his book but less critical of King Charles, a publishing insider has said.
A source told The Sunday Times they did not see how the brothers' relationship could recover once Harry's memoir Spare is published on January 10, They said: "I think the book will be worse for the Royal Family than they are expecting.
"Everything is laid bare. Charles comes out of it better than I had expected, but it's tough on William, in particular, and even Kate gets a bit of a broadside.
"There are these minute details, and a description of the fight between the brothers. I can't see how Harry and William will be able to reconcile after this."
The Duke of Sussex, who received an £18.4million advance for the memoir, will also explore his grief following the death of his mother and the permanent emotional wound that has left.
The source added: "The overall impression is this is a man who never recovered from the trauma of his mother dying so young."
The highly anticipated book is ghostwritten by JR Moehringer, a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist who previously ghosted tennis ace Andre Agassi's autobiography.
Shopper Frank Aldridge told The Sun how he was left in shock while browsing through Amazon to find a toy machete promoted with a mocked-up image of Prince George.
The image used was that taken by Matt Porteous to celebrate the Prince’s third birthday in 2016.
He was wearing shorts and a striped, whale-logo jumper from Pepa & Co.
The photo was hijacked and used to promote a wooden machete sold by Zhou-long.
Frank Aldridge said: “I nearly dropped my cup of tea while I was browsing present ideas for my grandkids.
“There was Prince George looking like an extra from Pirates of the Caribbean.
“I don’t suppose this has the royal seal of approval.”
Amazon said: “All sellers must follow our guidelines and those who do not will be subject to action including potential removal of their account.
“The image in question has been removed.”
Historian David Starkey said King Charles is playing a ‘clever long game’ with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
Starkey told GB News: “I don’t think they matter much, look at the opinion polls today.
“I mean, a near majority of people not only say they don’t much like them, but they actually want them stripped of their titles.
“With every passing day, I think with every desperate attempt at taking a little molehill of grievance and trying to turn it into a vast, vast Himalayas of resentment, they become less relevant.
“What I think Charles is doing is actually playing a rather clever long game.”
He added: “He’s just letting events take their course, which I think is a very wise thing to do.”
King Charles sent his condolences to Pope Francis following the death of Pope Benedict.
Released on the Royal Family’s website, the message reads: “Your Holiness, I received the news of the death of your predecessor, Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI, with deep sadness.
“I remember with fondness my meeting with His Holiness during my visit to the Vatican in 2009.
“His visit to the UK in 2010 was important in strengthening the relations between the Holy See and the United Kingdom.
“I also recall his constant efforts to promote peace and goodwill to all people, and to strengthen the relationship between the global Anglican Communion and the Roman Catholic Church.
“My wife and I send you our continued good wishes for your own pontificate.”
The former Pope died this morning aged 95.
Queen guitarist Brian May received a Knighthood for services to music and charity in the 2023 New Year Honours list.
Queen performed at the Queen’s platinum Jubilee concert last summer.
May said: “I’m happy and grateful to receive this honour.
“I will regard the knighthood not so much as a reward, but more as a charge – a commission – for me to continue to fight for justice – to be a voice for those who have no voice.
“I will endeavour to be worthy – to be that Knight in Shining Armour.”
Ex-footballer and broadcaster Chris Kamara received an MBE (Member of the Order of the British Empire) in the New Year Honour list 2023.
Kamara has been awarded for services to football, as well as his charity and anti-racism work.
Chris had to step down from the majority of his broadcasting jobs due to his health after being diagnosed with apraxia of speech and an underactive thyroid.
He turned 65 on Christmas day.
Lionesses forward Beth Mead received an MBE (Member of the Order of the British Empire) in the 2023 New Year Honours list for services to football.
Mead won the golden boot as top scorer in the 2022 Women’s European Championship, which England historically won.
She was also voted BBC Sports Personality of the Year less than two weeks ago and is one of four of the championship-winning team to be awarded honours.
