Brits should forgive Prince Andrew for his sex abuse scandal, says Archbishop of Canterbury
SHAMED Prince Andrew should be forgiven by the British people over his sex abuse scandal and multi-million pound payout, the Archbishop of Canterbury has claimed.
Most Rev Justin Welby says the Queen is “fully entitled” to have the disgraced Duke by her side in public.
In an interview with ITV News at 10 last night the Archbishop claims Andy, 62, is “seeking to make amends and I think that’s a very good thing”.
He added: “Forgiveness really does matter. I think we have become a very, very unforgiving society.”
The intervention comes on the eve of the Platinum Jubilee when Andrew is expected to appear with the Queen.
The Archbishop last night hit back against his ITV interview on forgiveness — claiming he was NOT speaking about Prince Andrew.

A spokesman for Justin Welby said: “He was making a broader point about the kind of society that he hopes the Platinum Jubilee inspires us to be.”
In the interview, Welby also said the Jubilee will “lift people’s spirit” and “something extraordinary to celebrate”.
But he has been forced to pull out of the celebrations after falling ill with Covid.
