Prince Andrews prosecutor called him a "toad" after it emerged that he had regretted interviewing about his friendship with Jeffrey Epstein, which led him to resign from his royal duties.
Virginia Giuffre, who says the Duke of York had sex with her three times when she was traded by Epstein, shared her angry reaction shortly after she also announced that she was hospitalized with bacterial meningitis.
Andrew, 60, resigned from his royal duties in November after admitting that his friendship with the disgraceful financier Epstein had distracted his family's work.
It was a BBC Newsnight interview saying he didn't regret the friendship that did the most damage.

A source close to the Duke told The Sunday Times: "I don't think he regrets the intention behind the interview to clear the air for his family, royal family, and institution.
"But the fact that he couldn't adequately or adequately convey his compassion for the victims of Epstein is of course a source of regret."
Giuffre, who now lives in Cairns, Australia with her husband, tweeted: "Oh, the toad's seagull - he regrets the BBC interview, but not his" friendship "with Epstein because it gives him" great contacts "and more gave."
She added: "This man is not a prince, but a facet of the deceit that has proven that she can get away with it all."
She says she was 17 when the Duke had sex with her, and was therefore a minor under US law.

US attorney Geoffrey Berman, who heads the investigation into the disgraced financier, accused Andrew of "misrepresenting himself as eager and willing to cooperate."
Giuffre is in the hospital in Australia, where she is being treated for bacterial meningitis, which she speculated could be due in part to a lack of immune system and stress.
She tweeted: "Back in the hospital - again. Bacterial meningitis this time. Went to the rainforest with the family for a weekend and came back with something from the jungle. Day 3 just had to get a spine tap - talk about pain! Please send me some love vibes from all my friends on Twitter. "
