You've decided he is guilty then.

Of causing embarrassment by association (with disgraced person, which he has admitted)? Most people will have already decided. Why else would he have rushed to give up all those patronages and all public engagements if he and particularly the Queen were just fine with the situation?

Sallyann,

It is a he said/she said situation, but with a certain amount of additional circumstantial evidence on one side. I think he probably is guilty, but you are right to point out that one shouldn't decide guilt without knowing all the evidence.

It's the woman involved and her three kids and husband I feel sorry for as well, now that she has been plastered all over the worlds media, her neighbours and school will know who she is and what has gone on, one just hopes she and the family have a close tightknit circle of friends and family that can shield her kids from all of this.

If the TV shows have any truth behind them, then his daddy, HRH the D of E, certainly sowed some wild oats in the 50s when he went off in the Brittannia for 3 months for a tour of Africa. When are those 90-year-old women going to feebly put their arthritic hands up and say "#me too!"

Which, without more solid evidence, makes the remainder of your post somewhat worthless.

Guilty? He committed no crime in London where the age of consent is 16, but if he was alleged to have been with an under-18 years old female in the US Virgin Islands there would be a case.

Alleged possibility of involvement with people trafficking?

We know she was 17 in both London and New York the following months but the USVI was the following year I believe. Was she still 17, that has not been quoted as specifically.

the royal family were... well royal... once upon a time... my mum would almost curtsy if the queen popped up on the tv... their power seeped through the tube in those days.

now losing their influence and prestige amongst the great unwashed
andy's fate mirrors the decline of the monarchy generally
