The old boy always had a wandering tidger... surprised it took this long to come out... one wonders whether he will visit the US sooner or later, the Yanks aren't one for European Royalty/Authority figures as far as the law is concerned (I recall Strauss-Kahn on his perp walk) and he may well find himself detained on entry for questioning!

However he'd feel right at home in Moscow... plenty of older fellas with girlies barely out of their teens... not flash though I hasten to add

Don't understand all this whingeing about being porked by a prince. Most people boast proudly about the slightest encounter with royalty (Philip shook my hand; Gran got a telegram from the queen on her hundredth birthday; we got an invite to Buck House garden party etc etc.) I would have thought that being shagged by an HRH would have been the crowning glory in any young girl's CV.

Last nights "HIGNFY "....." the perfect combination of elite and thick "......also included several other " less than flattering and complimentary " observations. The personal bank balance of £55m also got a mention.

Given the subsequent reaction, it's amusing to recall those on here who opined he had been "well advised ".....

How badly must you do your job for your own mother to fire you?.


.The Queen’s second son was summoned to a Buckingham Palace meeting on Wednesday, where it was revealed the Windsors were reducing the head count/making internal efficiencies/pivoting to video. People love to imagine the royal family is just like us, so this was just your standard meeting with your mother in which you’re decruited and offered the chance to retrain as someone who does even less work for a dazzling fortune. A lottery winner, perhaps, or bitcoin thief

Our neighbour baby sat while went to meet DoE.

The way I read it, she was minding her own business when the FBI called her. She is guilty too as she admitted procuring others too.

Wiggy, good article, hard to disagree. If you watch the 3rd series of The Crown I think it brings out the true characters although we thought the young Anne cool the rest of the character's, with wooden acting, seem very accurate.

I do get nauseated when women who were Royal Groupies in the 1980s come out to say they were molested and worse by the very people whom they followed.

I was on Mustique back in the late 1980's when a Royal party was there, and as usual everyone troops down to the only good bar on the island in the evening. Prince Andrew was there along with others of the group. I spoke with a couple of young Texan girls of extraordinary attraction who told me in no uncertain terms that their target for the night was Andrew. I have no idea what the age of majority was on Mustique in those days, but the girls certainly looked and acted as over 18.

It is women like that who are now trying to jump on the bandwagon of fame by claiming all kinds of infamy by people of position, when they were, in the vast majority of cases, very willing participants. As to the concept that Prince Andrew had women "procured" for him, that seems highly unlikely. When he walked into the room that I was in, a dozen women were his in a heartbeat. I call B...s..

Well if he's really idiotic he'll fly to the USA to answer questions - he'll never come back. He should say he'll answer any questions they want but in the UK.

So is your assertion that we should simply ignore every allegation because of the events you witnessed...

and of course the whole nature of the entire relationship with Epstein (convicted sex offender) remains unresolved..

wiggy, I am suggesting that a man of his attraction and position would never need to have a woman "procured" for him. There were so many enthusiastic amateurs of striking beauty who were available to him.

Women who are coming out now to say they were procured are highly likely to have been mis-informed as to the purpose of their contract. And if a girl has not worked out by 17 that she should be careful around young men, then she bears a responsibility for mis-adventure.

His relationship with Epstein, even back then when the latter's exploits were still conjecture, shows poor judgement, but even at his level that is not a hanging offence.

But still being pal's after Epstein's release from prison for sex offences is...in metaphorical terms.

I'm sure there were, but I'd hazard a guess that it's not impossible on occasions there might be times when it was easier to "order in"...........

And if a girl has not worked out by 17 that she should be careful around young men, then she bears a responsibility for mis-adventure.
You know, I'm really really not quite sure how to respond to that....

His relationship with Epstein, even back then when the latter's exploits were still conjecture, shows poor judgement, but even at his level that is not a hanging offence.
As clareprop has mentioned he was consorting with Epstein (including staying at the NY pad for several nights because "it was convenient") after Epstein was convicted as a sex offender, so I'm not sure where conjecture comes into it...

It the very least it all smacks of massively poor judgement perhaps coupled with a massive sense of entitlement.

It's that stay after Epstein's release that's a killer IMHO. You could argue you stick by your mates, even (or even especially) if you find their actions inexplicable and abhorrent , but to argue you stayed there for 4 days for convenience sake suggests a degree of forgiveness beyond belief.

I'm afraid he came across as so out of touch with the real world as to be menace to himself

And of course we have his brother, who had a similar upbringing, who will inherit the throne.
