 Prince Andrew - Duncan
It has been alleged that the Queen's second son, Prince Andrew, indulged in illegal(?) sexual activity while in the USA some years ago.

www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-50448579

The Prince has been interviewed for television purposes by Emily Maitlis.

It is believed some newspapers are also running this story.

Been all over Radio 5 since small hours.

Raises more questions than it answers. Andrew must be hoping Ghislaine MAxwell keeps her trap shut......

I would suggest Andrew holidays in the New Forest rather than New York.

It was Maxwell's house, she's in the photograph. Has she said anything about it, if she hasn't is that significant?

I have just decided I shouldn't care about this.
 Prince Andrew - smokie
I've been aware of this stuff for some time. thanks to Private Eye I think. My recollection is that it has been suggested that the Maxwell lady had acted as some kind of procurer for the dead man. If so it's probably in her interests just to keep her head down.

The Royal Family have just denied ever knowing or meeting Prince Andrew. The Queen says she was in a chip shop in Slough when he was born.

Wow Turns out the prince and I use the same Pizza Express. I hope they put a royal warrant on the door,
 Prince Andrew - R.P.
The only warrant he'll be seeing is an arrest warrant. Maybe the final nail in the monarchy. Self awareness seems to be a genetic thing amongst the male side. Outdated, outmoded and out of step with "their" citizens.

I don't really feel the need to excuse him, but they can't really help but be out of touch. They grow up in palaces with servants, and everybody they meet fawns. And he had Prince Philip for a dad, so maybe genes do play a part.

There are some royals who try to look down the other end of the telescope but they are likely to get it hilariously wrong, like Charles.

Anne is probably the most admired member of the family apart from HM, but she's not exactly user-friendly.

Royalty isn't what it used to be in Henry VIII's time, thank glub.

Leave him alone, he's a bloke with no job and no prospects, surprised JC hasn't offered him free broadband and adult education.

I don't believe that Prince Philip is his genetic father.
Wasn't Lord Porchester alleged to have been his father?

Doesn't need a friend's house. He owns a chalet in Verbier worth over £10M.

It occurred to me last night, whilst watching the TV News, that surely PA was subject to very close protection for all of his life to date. This means that there must be independent verification of where he was at any particular time.

A visit to Pizza Express would have been accompanied , or at least observed.

Will the FBI interviewing all the protection officers?

He is guilty of only one thing, poor judgement.

Yes, I know Timpsons the shoe repairers employ lots of convicted criminals, but that is different to refriending a child abuser, by a member of the Royal Family.

"Timpsons the shoe repairers employ lots of convicted criminals"

Of course, now it makes sense. The HQ is in Wythenshaw, next to where my old man used to work and find his Cortina up on bricks.

Reports surfacing that mum has taken away his pocket money and told him to pack up his toys. No more golfing trips by private jets and helicopters at taxpayers expense and he's been advised not to travel to US territories. Poor chap must be struggling to comprehend what all the fuss is about.

There has been a suggestion that a promotion to Admiral has also sunk.
 Prince Andrew - smokie
Maybe Rear Admiral would be more fitting?

Nah!
I think his existing rank of Vice Admiral covers more roles.

Pressure group Republic branded the move "offensive to our armed forces" and a "self-serving royal indulgence".

There is so much going on at the moment, that I don't know if that is a pun.

He probably expected to get that promotion with no sweat.

What did they expect after the Harry Dunn events ?
Expect a Trump tweet.

Wisely, in his own interests, Randy Andy is taking the Fifth.
 Prince Andrew 'uncooperative' over Epstein inquiry - Lemma
Irrespective of whether he cooperates or not, he is already confirmed as, at minimum, a completely disreputable person. That he reneges on a commitment previously given just degrades his already destroyed public persona even further. Time for a pizza?

I doubt the slightest connection though it did occur to me that a Cold War type swap could be arranged, perhaps at a NATO base in Iceland.

Damned if he does, damned if he doesn't.

Mind you he hasn't said he won't be cooperative.

He'll be taking all his holidays in the UK.

No real hardship as he has a wide choice of homes to choose from and more comfortable than some "US holiday camps"

I have no sympathy for the prince - seems an arrogant womaniser with a fondness for youth over experience by all accounts.

But I have no sympathy for the young lady who I suspect is simply motivated by a desire for money and notoriety/fame.

If she had a case she should have pursued it years ago.

I'm not sure waiting for years means she only after money, unless Prince Andrew has suddenly come into money?
 Prince Andrew 'uncooperative' over Epstein inquiry - Bromptonaut
>> But I have no sympathy for the young lady who I suspect is simply motivated
>> by a desire for money and notoriety/fame.

If you look at her personal history that seems a tad unfair. That she was groomed and trafficked for the use of Epstein and his friends is beyond dispute. She's now a campaigner on the issue; I doubt that anyone trying the same tricks now would face significantly more obstruction the Epstein and his friends did.

>> If she had a case she should have pursued it years ago.

She's only had the opportunity recently because of a window opened in the laws of New York State which disapplied limitations for a defined period earlier this year.
 Prince Andrew 'uncooperative' over Epstein inquiry - No FM2R
It's impossible to know from here.

If it's true, then everything she does is justified and her motivation is almost secondary. If it is true what does her timeframe matter? How can we say "she SHOULD have pursued it earlier"? Why? WTF does that matter in the context of what was done to her? *If* it is true.

I doubt she is just after money, but if she is, so what? Why shouldn't chase after whatever she wants? Does a mercenary motive make what was done to her ignorable or somehow less serious? Again, *if* it is true.

If it is not true then she should be dealt with appropriately.

But if it is true then pretty much nobody has any right to comment on what she should or should not do.
