Prince Andrew interview: Was it the WokingHAM branch of Pizza Express?

FOLLOWING revelations that Prince Andrew enjoyed a night at Pizza Express in Woking, social media has been awash with claims that our branch was given a royal visit.

During a BBC Newsnight special last night, the prince made the claim that he wasn’t at a party held in the home of Ghislaine Maxwell – the day he was alleged to have met a 17-year-old Virginia Giuffre (nee Roberts) at a party organised by paedophile Jeffrey Epstein.

The prince said that on that day he had taken his daughter, Princess Beatrice, to the Woking branch of Pizza Express to celebrate her 13th birthday, before returning to their then home of Sunninghill Park, near Ascot.

People have taken to social media to express their disbelief over the prince’s story, with most correctly referring to the Woking branch the prince mentioned. However, some have opted for a bit of a Hawaiian, adding the ham to Woking, and confusing our Broad Street branch as the one 10 miles away.

Both branches are 10-and-a-half miles away from Prince Andrew’s then Sunninghill Park home.

BBC Radio 4 presenter Andrea Catherwood is one of those.

She noted: “Forgot inability to sweat, and memorable trips to Wokingham Pizza Express, that Andrew claims the only reason to see Epstein after 4 years( and his release from prison) was to stop the friendship was weirdest bit of @maitlis astonishing interview with #Prince Andrew”

Another wants Prince Andrew to become the new ambassador for Wokingham’s tourist board.

While others pondered if it was the prince who had got it wrong
