THE band behind the viral hit “Boris Johnson is a F****** C***” are hoping to make a statement in the charts over the Jubilee weekend with their take on Prince Andrew.

Essex punk band The K***s released “Prince Andrew Is A Sweaty N****” to mark the Queen’s 70th year on the throne – and it’s already sitting just outside the top 10 on the official UK charts in 12th position.

The group’s 2020 take on the Prime Minister made it to fifth place in the top 40 – and it’s thought that the take-down of the Queen’s son will surpass that.

The song refers to Prince Andrew’s reported £12 million settlement with Virginia Giuffre, one of Jeffrey Epstein’s victims who also accused the member of the royal family of sexually abusing her when she was 17.

The prince was cast out of the working monarchy and no longer uses his HRH style after the allegations emerged. He denies the claims.

Lyrics to The K**** song, which is based on the Grand Old Duke of York rhyme, go: “The grand old Duke of York, he said he didn’t sweat. So why did he pay 12 million quid to a girl he’d never met?”

Explaining why they released the song, the band said: “The timing this year felt perfect, given Prince Andrew’s bizarre, shameful, and cowardly behaviour as he attempted to dodge any sort of accountability for the alleged sexual assault on Virginia Giuffre, followed by the attempt to sweep it all under the carpet with an out-of court settlement.”

Andrew had been set to join the wider royal family at a high-profile event in St Paul’s Cathedral on Friday – but he tested positive for Covid the day before.

A Buckingham Palace spokesperson said: “After undertaking a routine test The Duke has tested positive for Covid and with regret will no longer be attending tomorrow’s service.”

It is understood Andrew saw the Queen in the last few days but has been undertaking regular testing and has not seen her since he tested positive.
