Prince Andrew's infamous BBC interview about Jeffrey Epstein to be turned into movie: What to know
Queen Elizabeth ‘remained incredibly close’ to Prince Andrew ‘right up until her death,’ royal author claims
Katie Nicholl, Vanity Fair's royal correspondent and author of 'The New Royals,' spoke to Fox News Digital about the late monarch's close relationship with the Duke of York during the months leading up to her death.
The story behind Prince Andrew's BBC interview regarding his alleged friendship with Jeffrey Epstein is being turned into a Netflix movie.
Prince Andrew was interviewed for "Newsnight" in 2019 where he spoke on touchy topics including allegations of sexual assault from Virginia Giuffre, then Virginia Roberts.
"Scoop" is set to tell the behind-the-scenes story of the interview with journalist Emily Maitlis. It will be based on the chapters of a book by the former "Newsnight" producer Sam McAlister titled "Scoops: Behind the Scenes of the BBC's Most Shocking Interviews," which explores the negotiations with Andrew and his team, the rehearsals and the aftermath.
The televised interview was famously slammed by viewers and described as a disaster for the disgraced royal.
