During Prince Andrew's car crash Newsnight interview, a BBC photographer - Mark Harrison – reportedly captured a photo of the duke that will shake up the monarchy if it goes viral. The former BBC photographer hasn’t commented much on the image except that it would ‘embarrass Prince Andrew and the Royal Family’ if it were released.
Further disgrace for the disgraced
The Sun has reported that Prince Andrew has seen the picture and insisted that it should never be made public. However, Harrison has hinted it may be used in the forthcoming film on the Newsnight interview. Producers are permitted to reproduce their own interpretation of the jaw-dropping image as a dramatisation.
The original photograph was seen by a source close to the Newsnight interview who claimed that if it were made public, it will be so upsetting, especially if it is decontextualized. The source added:
Our jaws dropped to the floor when we saw it. It would cause Andrew much embarrassment – and imagine how high the bar has to be to cause him embarrassment after everything that has happened.
Everything that’s kept hidden eventually comes to the surface, either when the time is right or when the price is right. The source added:
There is, of course, a chance that it will at some point come out for all to see, perhaps if the price is right. Of course, the movie about the interview is happening so that is a possibility.'
The duke stated in the bombshell Newsnight interview that he is unable to sweat and that he was in a Pizza Express in Woking, Surrey, on the night that Virginia Giuffre claims they had sex. However, Harrison - an award-winning portrait photographer – insists that there are many things from that interview that were made public. He said:
It has been seen by only a few people but it would be a big deal for the Royal Family. There is a lot more from that day that is not yet in the public domain.
It would take a lot for the picture to be embarrassing for the already fallen from grace Prince Andrew. Amidst this, revelations like these only make people wonder what might the picture hold.
