PRINCE Andrew has been blasted for carrying out no charity work since pledging to make amends for his sex abuse scandal.
The disgraced Duke of York, 61, has instead filled his days playing golf, horse riding and watching TV at his 31-bed Royal Lodge home.
He paid millions of pounds to sex abuse accuser Virginia Giuffre, 39, in an out-of-court settlement in February and made a donation to her anti-sex trafficking charity.
A statement at the time said the Duke would show his remorse by “supporting the fight against the evils of sex trafficking by supporting its victims”.
Several proposals to carry out charity work have “stalled” after Buckingham Palace permission was sought, The Sun understands.
Nigel Cawthorne, author of Prince Andrew: Epstein, Maxwell and the Palace, said: “Surely he can find a charity somewhere in the world that will have him?
“His reputation cannot get any worse and is a stain on the Royal Family but doing charity work will take the edge off and show a little bit of contrition.”
Sources claim the prince was keen to do voluntary work but has now “lost focus” after plans were routinely scuppered.
Working for a sex trafficking organisation has been ruled out and charities Andrew had close links with as a working royal have since distanced themselves.
But a pal said: “There are a number of charitable proposals under active consideration.”
Andrew lost his royal roles and right to use his HRH title in January.
Despite personal pleas from his daughters Beatrice and Eugenie, it is understood King Charles has ruled that there is no way back for him as a working royal or in public life.
A spokesman for the Duke of York did not want to comment last night.
