Charlotte Briggs, 47 — who worked at the palace in 1996 — served as a maid for the Duke of York for a period of time, which she doesn't have fond memories of.
After exposing Andrew for his demanding behavior that often had her "left in tears," Briggs still has no regrets about her statements. (In speaking to The Sun on Thursday, January 20, Briggs called out the 61-year-old royal for his "entitled" attitude).
After detailing the backlash she has received since releasing her statements about Andrew, Briggs told Daily Mail on Friday January 21, "I don't give a toss what Prince Andrew feels," adding that "he is a horrible, nasty man."
"It has been more than 26 years and I did sign a [privacy agreement] under the official secrets act," she continued. "But my husband and I saw the TV program during the week when his teddy bears were mentioned and he said it was a good time for me to speak about what happened to me too." (A new documentary revealed that Andrew in his late thirties would "shout and scream" if his plush toys were not lined up properly, per New York Post).
"When I was in the supermarket someone accused me of cashing in on him, but I'm entitled to speak about what happened to me even though it was so long ago," Briggs said on Friday. "I am not sorry at all. But I have been hurt by some of the remarks against me."
In her original statement to The Sun, Briggs remembered Andrew blowing up at her after she left a small gap in his curtains, asking her, "Can't you f***ing do anything right?"
"This man fought for his country in the Falklands but couldn't stand up to close his own curtains," she explained. "It was utterly ridiculous but spoke volumes about him."
"Andrew definitely put a downer on things," she added. "He thinks he's above everyone."
"I'd been there six months when the job to become Andrew's maid came up. He'd moved back to the palace after his divorce from [Sarah Ferguson]," Briggs continued. "Nobody wanted the job because of his reputation for tantrums and sweary outbursts."
She eventually left the position because of Andrew's behavior, telling the outlet that she may have stayed longer had she been assigned to a different member of the royal family.
Briggs' unfavorable comments about the Duke are likely going to cost him when it comes to his upcoming trial, where he is facing a civil suit filed by Virginia Giuffre.
The now 38-year-old mother — who was also a victim of Jeffrey Epstein's abuse — alleged that she was forced to have sex with Andrew when she was only 17 years old.
Despite attempts from Andrew's legal team to have the case dismissed, the judge decided that the royal will be going to trial in a U.S. court to address the lawsuit.
Consequently, The Queen has stripped her son of his royal patronages and military titles in light of the horrific scandal.
