Meghan Markle and Prince Harry left no stone unturned to call out the monarchy during their Oprah Winfrey interview earlier this month. 
That being said, there was one subject that remained off-limits for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex: the sexual abuse case against Prince Andrew.
Despite many wondering why the couple refrained from commenting on the controversy surrounding the Duke of York, royal expert and author Anna Pasternak has given her take as to why the topic remained untouched.
In an interview with Fox News, she said: “I supposed it could be said that he wasnt relevant. It could also be out of loyalty and respect for his daughter, Princess Eugenie, who is close to both Harry and Meghan.
And if thats the reason, I think thats rather charming because I think Eugenie has been a very good friend to both of them, she shared.
“Its believed that [Eugenie] is probably the only member of the royal family who is the closest to them and has kept in touch We dont know the reason, but one can only suspect that maybe out of respect for her, they didnt want to go into her father, added Pasternak.
Prince Andrew was accused of being involved with late financier and convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein. He was also accused by a woman named Virginia Roberts Giuffre of being sexually abused by the royal when she was 17.
