Prince Andrew's Name Gone From WebsiteWochit Postables
Ian Forsyth/Getty Pitch @Palace, the startup-mentoring platform founded by Prince Andrew, has removed mention of the British royal from its website's home page. The prince has come under fire over his friendship with the disgraced US financier Jeffrey Epstein, who killed himself in jail last year while facing sex-trafficking charges. Andrew defended his friendship with Epstein in a damaging November BBC interview, during which he discussed allegations of sexual misconduct made against him by a US woman, Virginia Giuffre. Andrew stepped down from his role as head of Pitch@Palace after the interview, though some images of him remain on the platform's website.
