A former top British military Colonel, Tim Collins, publically called upon shamed Prince Andrew who has been implicated in the bizarre sex trafficking ring operated by Jeffrey Epstein to turn in his honorary military titles.

The Iraq war veteran is demanding that Prince Andrew “jump before he is pushed,” according to a report by The Mirror.

Although Prince Andrew claimed in a 2019 BBC interview that was impossible that he could have sexually assaulted Virginia Giuffre as the 38-year-old has claimed, Collins is demanding action because “The publicity surrounding [Prince Andrew] is embarrassing for everyone.”

“It is entirely up to him and what he decides to do at the end of the day,” the Belfast native said. “He will listen to advice from the rest of the royal family, he’s got his own mind, it’s going to be better for everybody if he took the decision and jumped rather than was pushed.”

“I don’t think he’ll ever ride the storm out. That is the bottom line because I think that the damage has been done,” he added.

The 61-year-old former officer predicts it’s only a matter of time before Prince Andrew makes the decision on his own.

“I think it’s a question of timing and I think that he’ll decide to jump or some more senior members of the royal family will say you’ve got to go,” Collins explained. ““There is one of two ways this could have gone – you either go immediately and say I’ll clear my name and come back, which is the right thing to do ­always or try, and tough it out. If you tough it out, you better hope to God that you come out of it.”

“The most likely outcome, in my opinion, is that he will be cleared and then at that point it will be the right point for him to say, ‘I haven’t been convicted of anything but the detritus around it means that I should make way for a younger royal in respect of the people I am Colonel-in-chief of’,” Collins said. “I don’t think we will have to wait very many weeks for that to happen.”

A survey of responses on social media showed that many agreed with Collins’ assessment and insist he should hang up his nine honorary titles, although some suggest it’s too late to avoid any embarrassment.
