Prince Andrew plans to walk Princess Beatrice down the aisle at wedding amid Epstein scandal: report

Prince Andrew is still planning on walking his daughter Princess Beatrice down the aisle at her wedding amid the Jeffrey Epstein sex scandal, according to a new report.

The disgraced Duke of York, 59, recently stepped down from his public royal duties after a woman came forward alleging she was forced to have sex with the prince nearly two decades ago. But a source told Entertainment Tonight that the scandal will not impact his fatherly duties on Beatrice's big day.
