Man heckles Prince Andrew during Queen Elizabeth's procession
"You're a sick old man"
Prince Andrew was heckled during his mother, Queen Elizabeth's procession in Edinburgh today.
The 62-year-old joined his siblings King Charles, Princess Anne, and Prince Edward for the somber event this afternoon.
As he walked behind his mother's coffin, a man yelled at the Duke of York.
The family was walking behind Queen Elizabeth's coffin when he yelled, "Andrew, you’re a sick old man" at him.
Officers quickly grabbed the man and pulled him out of the crowd.
They tackled the man to the ground as the family continued walking to Scotland's St Giles’ Cathedral.
According to The Express, the crowd started to chant "God Save the King" in a bid to drown out the man.
Prince Andrew stepped down as a working royal after he was accused of sexual assault.
Virginia Giuffre says she was sex trafficked to the disgraced royal by convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.
Giuffre alleges she was a minor when the prince met her in Ghislaine Maxwell's London home. She also claimed he assaulted her when she was an underage girl at locations in New York and the US Virgin Islands.
The sexual assault case was settled out of court in February 2022.
Prince Andrew had a close relationship with sex offenders Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell.
Andrew said he "regrets his association with Epstein, and commends the bravery of Ms. Giuffre and other survivors in standing up for themselves and others.”
"He pledges to demonstrate his regret for his association with Epstein by supporting the fight against the evils of sex trafficking, and by supporting its victims."
Giuffre said she was "regularly abused by Epstein and was lent out by Epstein to other powerful men for sexual purposes.”
She also alleges she was "forced to have sex with Prince Andrew at [Epstein’s] and Maxwell’s direction.”
