Prince Andrew accuser Virginia Roberts says Diana was kicked out of Royal family for less as she slams lack of apology

VIRGINIA Roberts has praised a tweet blasting Prince Andrew insisting Diana was kicked out of the royal family for "much less.”

The American former sex slave, 35, alleges she was forced to romp with the Duke of York, 59, while she was a 17-year-old trafficked victim of paedo Jeffrey Epstein – a claim Andrew strongly denies.

The royal was sacked last month by the Queen after a car crash Newsnight interview in which he said he did not regret his friendship with convicted sex offender Epstein.

Andrew was also slammed for saying he did not remember meeting Virginia – or dancing with her at a London nightclub – despite the pair being photographed together.

Today, Ms Roberts thanked crime YouTuber Shaun Attwood for his post blasting the royal for not saying sorry to her.

He wrote: “Still no apology from the @TheDukeOfYork to @VRSVirginia.”

'STILL NO APOLOGY'

Attwood added that Princess Diana was “stripped of her #HRH for much less.”

This is a reference to Diana losing her official title following her 1996 divorce from Prince Charles.

Virginia replied directly to Attwood, writing: “@shaunattwood Thank you for your tireless dedication in your very informative doco’s!!

“Great work mate- hope you keep it up!!”

Attwood, who is a convicted drug dealer, has made numerous YouTube videos discussing the Epstein case.

The Brit is an author and public speaker who discusses his experiences in jail.

Epstein, 66, was jailed in 2008 for having sex with a minor but was controversially released 13 months later after striking a sweetheart deal with prosecutors in Florida.

Prince Andrew was subsequently pictured walking through Central Park in New York with the multi-millionaire hedge fund manager in 2010 - after his jail stint.

The financier was arrested again in July this year and hit with sex trafficking charges after more than 40 women claimed they were abused by him at his various homes.

Epstein, despite being one of America's most high profile felons, committed suicide in August in his jail cell at a maximum security prison in Manhattan.

Prince Andrew vehemently denies all allegations of sexual misconduct made against him.
