PRINCE Andrew forced a maid to run up four flights of stairs to close his curtains — as he sat next to them.
Former Buckingham Palace worker Charlotte Briggs was left in tears by the “demanding and entitled” Duke of York’s foul-mouthed rants.
Lazy Prince Andrew blew his top at a tiny gap in his curtains and yelled at his maid: “Can’t you f***ing do anything right?”
The Duke of York’s former servant Charlotte Briggs suffered his sweary outburst as she ran up and down stairs to deal with heavy drapes yards from where he was sitting.
Charlotte, 47, said she was left in tears and ended up hiding behind curtains to avoid the bad-tempered and “entitled” royal.
She added: “This man fought for his country in the Falklands but couldn’t stand up to close his own curtains.
“It was utterly ridiculous but spoke volumes about him.
“Andrew definitely put a downer on things. He thinks he’s above everyone.” In contrast, Charlotte said other royals, including Princes Charles and Edward, were “wonderful”.
She was 21 when she started work at Buckingham Palace in January 1996. Within six months she got the job “nobody wanted” — being maid to Andrew shortly after his divorce from Sarah Ferguson.
The grumpy Duke, then 36 and a veteran of the Falklands War, frequently flew off the handle and expected everything to be done for him.
