Speaking to Kate Thornton during an episode of Royal Beat, Daily Mirror royal editor Russell Myers said ‘nobody knew the whole story’ of what Prince Andrew would be discussing on Newsnight.

He said, ‘Well, I don’t think he said [the Queen] the full story… he sort of told her he was going to do an interview, no one really knew the full story of what he was going to discuss with Newsnight.

“I mean anyone who knew what he was going to discuss would have just told him not to participate in it.”

The interview is now set to be dramatized in a new film called ‘Scoop’, which will be based on the new book by Sam McAlister, the woman who landed the Duke of York encounter over her friendship with pedophile Jeffrey Epstein .

Your honorary screenwriter Peter Moffat is writing the film adaptation, which will tell the story of the genesis of the interview.

In the now infamous encounter with presenter Emily Maitlis, Prince Andrew denied having sex with Virginia Giuffre, who said she was trafficked by Epstein on three occasions, including when she was 17 – still a minor under US law.

Andrew came under renewed pressure last month to tell the FBI about his pedophile friend Jeffrey Epstein after Ghislaine Maxwell was jailed.

His victims say the Duke and other “cowardly” associates of Epstein who “hide behind power and prestige” should be targeted by the authorities.

Andrew has largely withdrawn from public life since reaching a £12million out-of-court settlement this year with Epstein victim Virginia Roberts (now Giuffre), who accused the Duke of raped her. He has always denied the allegations.
