Prince Andrew recently reacted to his nickname, “Party Prince.” Throughout his life, he has also been called Randy Andy, Air Miles Andy, and Playboy Prince for very different reasons.

While speaking with Emily Maitlis for BBC, the Duke of York said that his Party Prince moniker is not accurate. The dad of two also said that he doesn’t know where the title came from because he’s not the type of person who loves to party.

In fact, after he tied the knot with Sarah Ferguson, Prince Andrew was very happy and contented that he didn’t feel the need to socialize with other people. He didn’t also feel the need to go out and party.

Meanwhile, Prince Andrew’s "Playboy Prince" nickname was reportedly born after the public learned that the royal had approximately 15 girlfriends throughout his life. And after he divorced from Sarah Ferguson, Prince Andrew reportedly reverted back to his old life.

While speaking with Express, royal commentator Margaret Holder said that Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie’s father did not necessarily discourage the nickname.

“The playboy image is not one Prince Andrew discourages. He’s been seen many times on these party yachts and he thinks it enhances his reputation. Attracting luscious young ladies makes him feel young,” she said.

Prince Andrew also earned the nickname Air Miles Andy due to fondness for using helicopters to attend royal functions that he could otherwise reach on board a car. In 2009, he reportedly flew to Shoreham, West Sussex from London instead of traveling via a private vehicle for an hour and 30 minutes.

In related news, Prince Andrew denied the recent allegations that he had sex with underage women while hanging out with Jeffrey Epstein. The dad of two said that he never slept with Virginia Roberts, and he also received support from the Duchess of York and Buckingham Palace.

But, according to Spiked, Prince Andrew made a joke out of himself during the interview. After all, no one believed what he said.
