  • Queen donned a blue hat with feather details and a patterned pale green jacket

The Queen cut an elegant figure as she headed to The Royal Chapel of All Saints at Windsor Great Park this morning.

The monarch appeared stoic during her weekly drive to worship just hours after her second son appeared in a 'car crash' interview about his relationship with billionaire paedophile Jeffrey Epstein - denying he ever had sex with the financier's 'sex slave' Virginia Roberts. 

Her Majesty donned a blue straw hat with feather details and a patterned pale green and blue jacquard jacket with a button-down feature and brooch as she rode alone in the back passenger seat of the royal car. 

She looked straight ahead after a source close to Prince Andrew claimed he wouldn't 'do anything without discussing it with her majesty first', while a spokesperson for Buckingham Palace said 'the Queen is aware of the interview'.

Showing her penchant for pearls, the Queen completed the look with a pearl drop earring, which perfectly complemented her patterned jacket.

Her weekly visit to church comes the morning after the Queen's second son, Prince Andrew, Duke of York, was slammed for a 'PR disaster' with BBC Newsnight presenter Emily Maitlis.

Piers Morgan led the fierce online backlash against Prince Andrew as he branded the Royal's car crash interview last night as 'desperate toe-curdling bulls***'. 

The Good Morning Britain presenter, 54, heaped praise on Newsnight interrogator Emily Maitlis's 'brilliant forensic dissection', but questioned why the Duke of York agreed to be grilled for an hour on his friendship with paedophile billionaire Jeffrey Epstein.

He tweeted: 'This is one of the most astonishing interviews I've ever watched. Brilliant forensic dissection by @maitlis - desperate, toe-curling bulls*** from Prince Andrew. Why on earth did he do this? Insane.'

The 'no holds barred' interview saw the Prince quizzed on his relationship with Epstein - and he again denied ever having sex with the financier's 'sex slave' Virginia Roberts.

The Duke, 59, faced a flurry of questions about his links to the paedophile, who was found dead aged 66 earlier this year in a New York prison cell while being held on sex trafficking charges.

Andrew maintained he does not recall meeting Miss Roberts and did not spend time with her at Tramp Nightclub in London on March 10, 2001, after which she claims the pair first had sex.

He denied he slept with her on three separate occasions, saying the encounter in 2001 did not happen because he had taken his daughter Princess Beatrice to Pizza Express in Woking for a party, and they spent the rest of the day together.

But social media users were sceptical following the 9pm show on Saturday.

TV presenter Carol Vorderman tweeted: '#PrinceAndrew So I didn't speak to him for 4 years because it wasn't appropriate, but when he was released from prison for sex offences I didn't ring him..no.., I flew to America to tell him in person that I STILL wasn't going to talk to him...RUN THAT BY ME AGAIN.'

Rose McGowan, an actress and #MeToo movement figurehead, posted: 'Can Prince Andrew not remember Virginia Roberts, his accuser, because there were so many young girls? Am I hearing this right?'

Craig Meighan wrote: 'The Prince Andrew excuse: ''I couldn't have done the sweaty molesting because I wasn't sweating that year'' is absolutely astonishingly bad for an adult human.'

BBC presenter Jeremy Vine said he was 'struggling with the Woking angle?'
