Prince Andrew threw a tantrum over damaged trees at his mother’s Windsor estate, lashing out at a female gardener just days after getting court papers in his case of sexual abuse, a report said.
Tongue lashing for the lowly staffer “was over the top” leaving her “shaken and upset”, according to the UK Sun.
The royal family is facing allegations that he had sex with Virginia Roberts Giuffre three times when she was 17, at the behest of the late pedophile Jeffrey Epstein and Epstein’s now-convicted partner. Ghislaine Maxwell.
“Andrew is under a lot of stress, but that’s no reason to take it out on the staff who do their job. She had nothing to do with the damage and thought it was unfair. It’s just a few saplings after all,” a source told the outlet.
The gardener was one of several working on saplings at the Windsor compound when the “over-the-top” incident happened in October, the source said.
