Prince Andrew has been dealt a major blow after KPMG, a sponsor of his flagship charitable project cut ties with the the royal amid scrutiny of his relationship with Jeffrey Epstein.

Andrew has faced intense criticism over his BBC interview with Emily Maitlis, in which he defended his friendship with the late disgraced financier and refuted claims he slept with one of Epstein’s alleged teenage “sex slaves”.
