A 'crowned' Prince Andrew endures the 'Crossing the Line' ceremony in 1982.
Never-before-seen photos have emerged to show the hilarious moment Prince Andrew was mercilessly ridiculed as part of a Royal Naval initiation 36 years ago.
The young officer was made to take part in a Crossing the Line ceremony to mark the first time he passed the equator as a seaman.
In a nod to Prince Andrew's Royal background, the photos show him sat on makeshift throne with a cardboard crown placed on his head.
Alarmingly, a seaman dressed as the barber is seen approaching the then second-in-line to the throne with a very large meat clever covered in imitation blood.
