    In what sense is this honorable? I don't understand.

    Andrew also said he stayed at Epstein’s home in New York after the financier’s conviction because he was “too honorable”. Epstein had pleaded guilty in 2008 to Florida state prostitution charges.

    “It was a convenient place to stay,” Andrew said. “But at the time I felt it was the honorable and right thing to do and I admit fully that my judgment was probably colored by my tendency to be too honorable but that’s just the way it is.”

    In what sense is this honorable? I don't understand.

      You dont understand because it makes no sense. He flew to New York to tell Epstein that he could no longer be he friend because he was a sex offender (because its "not the sort of thing you do over the phone") but he stayed in Epstein's house for 4 days because it was convenient and the honourable thing to do and he has a tendency to be too honourable. Feels like an episode of the Thick of It.

      I have no clue. He seems to just be spewing stuff to cover his ass. This statement makes it seem like he's trying to take the opportunity to sound like a great person.

    "If I am forced to give a statement and if I'm advised that it's in my best interest, I will give a statement, because of duty" This man makes no sense. How disconnected from reality is he?

    He appeared to be open to giving a statement under oath, saying in the interview: “If push came to shove and the legal advice was to do so, then I would be duty bound to do so.”

    "If I am forced to give a statement and if I'm advised that it's in my best interest, I will give a statement, because of duty"

      Well he’s Queen Elizabeth’s son. So, definitely very disconnected from reality.
