Prince Andrew has called off a trip to Bahrain as the chaos over his relationship with Jeffrey Epstein continues, it has been reported.

The Prince was expected to travel to the Middle East this weekend as part of his Pitch@Palace project but has cancelled plans following reported pressure from his royal family.

It has also been reported his private secretary, Amanda Thirsk, has been sacked from her palace-funded role and will instead become the chief executive of the programme which is a private project operated by the Prince.

Despite the Prince stepping back from public life, The Duke of York will be continuing with Pitch@Palace “outside and entirely separate from the palace”, a Buckingham Palace spokeswoman said.
