Prince Andrew's moments fleeting in S5 of 'The Crown' - likely so we don't feel too sorry for him

Prince Andrew may be the Queen’s second son, but his character’s presence in season five of The Crown is fleeting. As the new series of the hit show lands on Netflix, Yahoo UK’s royal executive editor Omid Scobie takes us through the limited and entirely fictional scene during which Prince Andrew – played by James Murray – prepares his mother for another embarrassing tabloid scandal involving his then-wife Sarah Ferguson. Cracking jokes and displaying sensitivity and empathy for Sarah, Andrew is gone before you know it. Scobie explores why the Duke of York’s disgrace in recent years has likely impacted his character’s screen time, despite the fact in reality Andrew was a major player in what made 1992 so scandalous.
