Why are they stepping down or as I call it, distancing?
My guess: Prince Andrew. Tomorrow night, ABC will air the promised, reportedly squashed bomb-shell story that reveals disturbing reports of Prince Andrew’s connections with Jeffrey Epstein, that was exposed late last year from reporter Amy Robach. Robach, caught on a LIVE mic, was heard saying “the Palace” (as in Buckingham) demanded ABC to squash a story that could damage Prince Andrew. It’s possible that the story may air tomorrow night. Since this story broke last year, Prince Andrew was asked to step down from his royal duties.
