Prince Andrew is reportedly concerned that the new series of The Crown will besmirch his squeaky-clean reputation.
Those close to the Duke of York say he is worried that embarrassing aspects of his intensely private personal life will be thrust into the spotlight by the Netflix hit.
A source said: “All Andy really likes to do in his down time is relax with a pizza and some dough balls and stay out of trouble.
“However, he’s anxious that the series might have turned up some past dirt on him, like the fact that he once dated Koo Stark who was in a soft-core porn film. That’s pretty serious stuff.
“Or they might make a thing about him being a general gadabout and wastrel who spends lots of money. He just doesn’t want people to think badly of him.
“Having always been so well loved and respected by the British public, this level of scrutiny will be stressful for him. He might even spontaneously start sweating again.
“It’s a shame, because usually when he gets involved with something American everything turns out so well for him.”
