A tweet about Prince Andrew and his mother, Queen Elizabeth II, has gone viral, racking up thousands of shares.
Queen Elizabeth, 95, was recently diagnosed with Covid. Contrary to what one dubiously sourced gossip site would have you believe, she is currently fighting the illness.
Andrew, of course, has been living through his own pr nightmare since he was sued by Virginia Giuffre, who says she was forced to have sex with him when she was still a minor and under the control of convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein. Andrew eventually settled with Guiffre for an undisclosed sum.
The joking tweet referenced both stories:
