Duke of York, with public name Prince Andrew, today celebrates his 60th birthday.
Prince Andrew was embroiled in allegations in late 2019. relating to deceased sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, which he denied.
A now infamous BBC Newsnight interview saw the Royal Family member claim innocence after using a trip to a Pizza Express restaurant in Woking as an alibi.
Anyway, a party that the Royal Family was planning to throw in his honour has now been cancelled – but he is now holding his own do at the Royal Lodge in Windsor.
No word on who will be attending the party, but the official Royal Family Twitter account has wished Andrew a happy birthday, which might have seemed like the right idea at the time. Why? Check it out!
On this day in 1960, Prince Andrew was born at Buckingham Palace, the first child born to a reigning monarch for 103 years.

Even Sarah Ferguson, Prince Andrew’s former wife, wished him a happy birthday, which, once again, was probably not advisable.
