Prince Andrew was still getting rides on the Lolita Express after Epstein’s 2006 arrest

Prince Andrew, the Duke of York, is in Northern Ireland today. He had a full itinerary for his Northern Ireland trip at one point, but several of the events on his schedule… canceled ON HIM. They told him not to come. They told him they didn’t want him. He still made the trip though, and today he was at a “youth golf tournament” at the Royal Portrush golf Course, where I assume he gave out some trophies and probably got to put his arms around some teenage girls, just like he did with Virginia Roberts.

Meanwhile, more information is still coming out about all of Andrew’s connections to Jeffrey Epstein. Did you know that Andrew invited Epstein – and Harvey Weinstein – to Princess Beatrice’s 18th birthday party at Windsor Castle? The party was just days before Epstein’s arrest in 2006, although Epstein actually knew he was being investigated since 2005.

Jeffrey Epstein attended the 18th birthday of pal Prince Andrew’s daughter Princess Beatrice just days before he was arrested on child-prostitution charges in 2006, according to a new report. Epstein flew in for the lavish, half-million-dollar soiree at Windsor Castle with his then-girlfriend and accused procuress Ghislane Maxwell, the Sun reported. Also reportedly in attendance was rape-accused movie mogul Harvey Weinstein.

The Duke of York is among several prominent men accused of sleeping with Epstein’s underage victims — a charge he has denied. But the birthday bash revelations just proves how close-knit the two men were, a source told the Sun.

“It goes to show how Epstein worked his way into the very heart of the British establishment — rubbing shoulders with royalty at a palace,” the person said. Epstein was arrested eight days after the July 15, 2006, party — but he and Andrew remained friends until 2010, the Sun reported.

But of course it’s not just that. Of course it’s not just “Andrew invited his gross rapist buddies to his teenage daughter’s birthday party at Windsor Castle.” No, Andrew also hitched a ride on Epstein’s plane weeks after the party, and weeks after Epstein had been arrested:

Prince Andrew flew on Jeffrey Epstein’s private jet weeks after the billionaire was arrested for having sex with underage girls. The Duke of York took a trip on the paedophile’s luxury Gulfstream on September 1, 2006. Epstein, who was not on board the flight from Luton to Edinburgh, had been arrested in July over solicitation of prostitution, eight days after attending Princess Beatrice’s 18th birthday celebrations.

The disgraced financier’s alleged madam Ghislaine Maxwell, 57, was among passengers heading to a private wedding on the flight.

A source told The Sun: “It is another example of Andrew’s close ties to the Epstein scandal. Weeks have gone by and yet new allegations are still emerging.”

Details of the flight were in a handwritten manifest kept by Epstein’s pilot, David Rodgers. It was among thousands of pages of court papers released last month. The Prince’s name appears beside Maxwell’s initials. Sources confirmed the duke was on board and was heading for a private wedding. The Gulfstream plane left Edinburgh the next day, with only Maxwell on board, for Newfoundland, then to Teterboro, New Jersey, US. It was not clear if the duke, 59, knew of Epstein’s arrest at the time but it had been reported in the US.

[From The Sun]

“It was not clear if the duke, 59, knew of Epstein’s arrest at the time but it had been reported in the US.” Oh my God, why are British outlets still bending over backwards to give Andrew the benefit of the doubt? “How could have known that his good friend had just been arrested in a sweeping investigation into rape, human trafficking, blackmail, etc! We really can’t ask a prince of the realm to keep up with the news or read a newspaper!” And what I always think about is how everyone called Epstein’s favorite private plane the Lolita Express. But how could Andrew have known? Why would we expect him to read the news? Jesus.

    Half a million on a birthday party?? Was there an uproar about that?
    It is so disgusting he invited those predators to his daughter’s birthday party with all of those young girls there.

    • (TheOG)@Jan90067 says:

      Yet… “Half a million on a BABY SHOWER!!!” HOW DARE SHE (even though “SHE” didn’t spend it, her friends did).

  2. BayTampaBay says:

    What I do not understand is why the BP courtiers did not tell Andrew “YOU CANNOT BE IN THE PRESENCE OF EPSTEIN”. Even if we accept the line that “Andrew did not know” (which I do not believe for one second) the BP courtiers did know as it is their job to know by vetting people in royal circles and the royal orbit.

    • shelley says:

      He is probably the type to do what he wants when he wants and has an “I’m the boss mentality.”

    • Becks1 says:

      His security detail would absolutely have known. Andrew knew. He didn’t care.

    • Bookworm says:

      The whole York family is disgusting, even the daughters.

      Andrew doesn’t care what anyone would have told him, and it was said recently that security can’t tell the BRF who to have at a private occasion.

      With that story the other day about Andrew having a big argument with a staff member who then got Charles involved, I think the staff are showing their own disgust at him.

      Then those organizations revoking their invitations to him was wonderful! He’s not going to get past this – he is ruined.

    • 10KTurtle says:

      There was another story this weekend about Charles having to force Andrew to apologize to an employee because:
      “Prince Andrew flew into such a furious rage at a senior Palace aide, It was a verbal dispute. It was a work-related issue. The Duke got very cross that what he wanted wasn’t possible.” -The Daily Mail

      So maybe someone did tell him not to, but “what Andrew wants, Andrew gets.” -10KTurtle, including epic eye roll

      • Mignionette says:

        I am guessing that he is being asked to step back from his engagements a little and that is what prompted his rage.

        That is the most likely scenario and if that is the case then it says a lot about him and how much in denial he is in.

        Often with men who abuse underage children, there is a degree of cognitive dissonance,

      • Nic919 says:

        BP also confirmed that something happened, which they rarely do. They downplay the physical assault but not the fact there was a dispute.

      • Digital Unicorn says:

        They also downplayed the apology, with a source saying Andrew didn’t apologise as he has done nothing wrong.

        Its interesting that it was Chuck who spoke to him and not Mummy – that says quite a lot to me and means that she and Phil is pretty much handing managing the family over to him. For decades Phil ruled the family with an iron fist.

        Prince Fat Fingers must have chaffed at being told off by big brother.

    • Sophie says:

      He sounds like a spoiled brat on top of being a pedophile. Remember when he rammed that gate open with his car because he didn’t want to drive the long way? I’m sure his people warned him and he ignored the warnings.

    • Tigerlily says:

      Even if palace staffers advised Andrew against consorting with Epstein, who’s to say he didn’t just ‘get cross’? And possibly assault said staff verbally and possibly physically? Oh but that could never happen….

  3. shelley says:

    His connection to the Lolita express was not merely for transportation – I wonder how many other young girls were forced to have sex with him? Virginia can’t be the only one.


      What other men other than alan Dershowitz has she been forced to have sex with. Was it really just those two, why hasn’t she named any others. There are other victims but none has publicly said Andrew yet thought or Dershowitz either

      • shelley says:

        Did you misunderstand my comment? I was wondering what other young girls were supplied to Andrew – NOT what other men Virginia was with.

        The second part of your comment seems sympathetic to Andy somehow. No, nothing’s been said publicly, but where there’s smoke there’s fire.


      If there where more woman claims of sex with Andy we would have heard them by now since it’s been 8 whole year’s since these allegations came out

      • Smices says:

        Johanna Sjoberg has also come forward against PA. Also, many of these girls were described as Eastern European and speaking little English.

      • kacy says:

        Do we think that most of these girls ended up in stable lives with ready access to news coverage? Several of them have already committed suicide. I would bet that a lot of them remained in prostitution once they aged out of Epsteins circles and died young from drug issues or work related violence. If they ended up in a position to speak up, they probably would be hesitant to do so, because they may not have told their husbands, etc…

      • whatWHAT? says:

        what’s the limit, STEPHANIE HAWKINS? how long is too long to come forward?

        you do know sometimes women don’t come forward because they think no one would believe them, until there are many who have the same accusation? or they don’t come forward out of shame? fear? and can you imagine the power that the ROYAL F*CKING FAMILY has? how much more power than just “some teenage wh*re”?

        you really sound like you’re defending these child rapists in both of your posts.

        Are you?

      • Jules says:

        Stephanie Hawkins- trolls are not welcome here. Please go away. Thanks!

  4. OriginalLala says:

    These people are all disgusting. Half a million on a birthday!? I wonder how much of that was actually paid by Pedo and how much by the taxpayer. I really dislike these vile people

    • Mar says:

      Right? But they want to crucify the Sussexes for any spendings?

      • whatWHAT? says:

        well, they want to crucify ONE of the Sussexes for ANYTHING.

        Prince Andrew – alleged pedophile, British Press: “well, he may not have known that Epstein had been arrested for having sex with children, give him a break!”

        Dutchess Megan, British Press: “HOW DARE SHE WRITE AN OP-ED FOR A MAGAZINE! FLOG HER!”

      • CynicalCeleste says:

        With respect, the sussexes are part of the family – paid public representatives of the family, in fact – that is doing nothing to help bring this to justice and therefore they are as complicit as any of them.

  5. Aims says:

    It just keeps on getting more gross. I haven’t remarked on this story, because it gives me all sorts of repulsion. At the very least, he was partying with a pervert, that’s the very least. Connect the dots.

    • MC2 says:

      And he KNEW he was a pervert. The “art” and furnishings in Epstein’s home was sick, the prince is not blind too.

  6. MellyMel says:

    This man is vile and the RF are tone-deaf as hell for having him go on trips like everything is a-okay! Sick.

  7. Maria says:

    What better reason do you need to bring this whole British monarchy down?

  8. MsAnneguish says:

    His security team would have known, which means Andrew would have known. What an indescribable douchenozzle.

    • Tigerlily says:

      Cannot imagine working for this arsehole. Not enough money in the world. Spoiled man-child unfortunately created by the Queen.

  9. ChillyWilly says:

    UGH, Andrew is so repugnant. And people are still letting him attend youth events??? For why??

    • Mignionette says:

      A lot of his patronages are actually using the press to subtly communicate to him that he should stay away, but as ever what Prince Andrew wants….

  10. Original Jenns says:

    “but he and Andrew remained friends until 2010, the Sun reported” WTF New York Post. Why even include that. Who cares if the Sun reported it, everyone and their accomplices know it’s lies.

  11. Burdzeye View says:

    Its becoming increasingly evident that PA is a vile individual. And his arrogance in carrying on with his schedule is repugnant….equally repugnant is the fact that BP and the Queen are covering up for him and acting as if its business as usual…it most certainly is not. He should be frogmarched to the nearest police station like the criminal he is and let them take it from there.

  12. blue36 says:

    The lawyers need to really go after him, the fact that he’s getting away with this is disgusting

  13. Charfromdarock says:

    He is disgusting. All those who have facilitated his grossness are disgusting.

    I was glad to see commenters slagging him off on the Royal Family Instagram. He knows what he did. We all know. I hope he becomes a pariah and is forced to retire from public life. Because sadly, I don’t think he will ever face justice via the legal systems.

  14. Liz version 700 says:

    Shocking… said no one at all… he is so entirely gross

  15. Mignionette says:

    I hope they find a boatload of tapes and this finally brings the monarchy down. UK Politicians are so embroiled with Brexit that if the proverbial hits the fan, the RF are T.O.A.S.T.
