DOTING QUEEN MADE AN­DREW A MON­STER

But pam­pered prince can’t out­run Ep­stein scan­dal & will pay up for first time in his life

Globe - - SPECIAL REPORT -

NO WON­DER Prince An­drew has turned into a dis­grace — his doting mom, Queen El­iz­a­beth, raised him to be a pam­pered, spoiled mon­ster by in­dulging every whim, es­pe­cially his crav­ings for wealth and women!

The 60-year-old prince, who’s ripped the monar­chy to shreds with his scan­dalous link to pe­dophile Jef­frey Ep­stein’s teenage sex slaves, was raised to have no real re­spon­si­bil­ity

— since big brother

Charles is heir to the throne — and en­cour­aged to fol­low every self­ish de­sire, palace sources squeal.

“Of her four kids, An­drew was al­ways her fa­vorite,” dishes a royal in­sider. “No mat­ter what he did, wild par­ties, crazy spend­ing, Her Majesty let him off the hook.

“He was able to push the bound­aries to the limits — and be­yond — and get away with it.”

But the queen wasn’t the only one! His movie-star looks and quick smile made Andy adored by the pub­lic. Young An­drew was like a rock star in the ’80s — mobbed by girls who screamed and fainted over the “prince charm­ing,” who made Charles look like a weird stick-in-the-mud.

So it’s no sur­prise he’s now run to his mom beg­ging for an­other bailout, cry­ing he was put in the poor­house by pay­ing $15 mil­lion in black­mail to kinkster Ep­stein, in­sid­ers say.

But even El­iz­a­beth has fi­nally had enough. She pub­licly axed his $300,000 yearly al­lowance, and sources say she’s re­fus­ing to write an $8.1 mil­lion check so An­drew can avoid evic­tion after fail­ing to pay the mort­gage on his posh chalet!

Trou­ble fol­lows the dis­grace­ful Duke of York like a dog track­ing a bone, ac­cord­ing to author Nigel Cawthorne. In his ex­plo­sive ex­posé, Prince

An­drew: The End of the Monar­chy and Ep­stein, Cawthorne says An­drew’s tem­per tantrums and stub­born­ness led nanny Ma­bel An­der­son to tag him “Baby Grum­pling.”

“An­drew … was al­ways get­ting up to mis­chief, such as re­mov­ing all the tubes from Ma­bel’s ra­dio or ty­ing the sen­tries’ shoelaces to­gether,” he writes. “Some­how, An­drew was al­ways for­given — even when he sprin­kled itch­ing pow­der in his mother’s bed or climbed on to the roof of Buck­ing­ham Palace to turn the TV an­tenna so that the queen wouldn’t be able to watch the rac­ing at Sandown Park.”

By age eight, he was a “bit of a bully” at his Heather­down prep school, says the author. At Scot­land’s Gor­don­stoun board­ing school, he was slammed as “boast­ful, big­headed” and named “The Snig­gerer” for telling dirty jokes.

How­ever, at 16, he was de­scribed as “six feet of sex ap­peal” and mobbed by girls dur­ing a visit to Canada for the Mon­treal Olympics.

A body­guard claims the prince was al­ways a snotty jerk “throw­ing things on the ground and de­mand­ing [guards] “f***ing pick them up,” says the book.

At the Royal Naval Col­lege, a fel­low student says, “He played the big ‘I am the prince’ rou­tine, seemed rather ar­ro­gant” and was the only one al­lowed to have a car, notes the book.

In his 20s, he trig­gered scan­dals with af­fairs with nude model Vicki Hodge and ac­tress Koo Stark. But things got worse.

After his ten-year mar­riage to Sarah Fer­gu­son crashed and burned in scan­dal in 1996, An­drew met Ep­stein through the bil­lion­aire’s then-mis­tress Ghis­laine Maxwell, daugh­ter of me­dia ty­coon Robert Maxwell. Over the next dozen years he par­tied hardy with the con­victed child rapist — even after Ep­stein served time for sex crimes!

Ep­stein is be­lieved to have se­cretly video­taped the prince in com­pro­mis­ing po­si­tions at his pri­vate Caribbean is­land, Man­hat­tan man­sion and New Mex­ico ranch.

Sources tell GLOBE the randy royal was se­cretly in­dicted by a fed­eral grand jury and is fac­ing ex­tra­di­tion to the U.S. One of Ep­stein’s teen slaves, Vir­ginia Roberts Gi­uf­fre, claims she was forced to bed the prince when she was just 17. An­drew de­nies the charge.

But there’s no deny­ing he was also an out­ra­geous spender

— de­spite hav­ing no real in­come. In 2010, his bill as a royal en­voy was $190,000 for ho­tels and $542,000 for travel with his horde of ser­vants and body­guards. Sources say he traded his royal sta­tus for cash in se­cre­tive busi­ness deals.

Now the brat’s broke and in dan­ger of go­ing to jail for his links to Ep­stein, who died un­der sus­pi­cious cir­cum­stances in a fed­eral prison cell last Au­gust.

“An­drew’s had the most priv­i­leged life any­one can imag­ine,” says the in­sider. “Sure the queen spoiled him, but re­ally, he’s to blame.

“He’s an ar­ro­gant jerk with no sense of shame and will richly de­serve what he gets.”

The royal spoiled brat has al­ways got­ten away with ev­ery­thing, but now he’s fac­ing ex­tra­di­tion to the U.S. for his ties to the Ep­stein sex scan­dal, sources say Prince An­drew and his older brother, Charles, were mobbed by pretty Cana­dian girls An­drew was pals with pe­dophile Jef­frey Ep­stein
