Prince Andrew still plans to walk to church with the royal family on Christmas Day

The British Royal family arrive at Sandringham to celebrate Christmas Day

I can’t keep up with all of the sordid stories about Prince Andrew. In the aftermath of his catastrophic BBC Newsnight interview, the British papers and tabloids have done an okay job of digging up some new information and combining that new info with regurgitated older stories about the prince. Some examples: there is a second woman – who doesn’t want her name out there – who says Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell trafficked her to Andrew as well. Another person came forward and claimed that in the ‘90s and early ‘00s, Andrew was “particularly fond” of “having two women massaging him at once according to former friends, who revealed how models would sit on his lap at high society dinner parties.” There’s also some stories about how Andrew made a deal with a shady tycoon for use of the tycoon’s private jet. Mess. But just FYI: the Queen still plans to invite Andrew for the Christmas Day church-walk at Sandringham.

Prince Andrew is set to make his first public appearance since his catastrophic BBC Newsnight interview alongside the Queen on Christmas Day. He will join the royal family at church in Sandringham, where the public gathers to watch the royals, to gain an idea of the public’s opinion on him since the disastrous interview about his friendship with billionaire paedophile, Jeffrey Epstein.

The Duke of York was forced to step down from his public duties last month as a result of the fallout from ill-judged comments in the interview, such as describing Epstein’s paedophilia as simply ‘unbecoming’ and saying he didn’t regret his friendship with the sex offender.

The Queen traditionally attends the Christmas Day morning service at St Mary Magdalene Church alongside other royals. Often the family will walk to the church and back again, on the monarch’s Norfolk estate, and interact with members of the public. A Buckingham Palace spokesman told The Times: ‘The Duke of York is still a part of the royal family and you can expect to see him at family occasions.’

[From The Daily Mail]

Lord, I hope Shadow King Charles steps in and saves the Queen from herself yet again. You know she’s the one doing this and encouraging this. This is HER m.o., her tone-deaf instinct to protect her favorite son. This was what those first 72 hours were like post-interview too – the Queen ordered her courtiers to continue to defend and protect Andrew. It was only days later that the story began to change, and that was likely when Charles had a fit. That’s about to happen again – Charles seems to be the only one around the Queen willing to tell her that her actions re: Andrew are damaging the monarchy. Think of the PR disaster of Andrew slithering to church alongside the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and the Queen and Charles and Camilla.

    First of course he plans to do the church walk, as he feels he has not done anything wrong.

    Second, Harry and Meghan looks like pr masterminds for planning to be away from the royal family for Christmas this year, well played. I would be going nuts if I was any other family member expected to trot along beside Andrew in support of him.

    • Darla says:

      Are they still going to be away for Christmas? I was just wondering that. This is so disgusting of the queen, and also, doesn’t she think about the rest of her family? So now the younger royals have to be seen christmasing it up with this guy?

      • FC says:

        I hope H&M stay in England for the holiday but volunteer at a soup kitchen on Christmas day. Or even better, a shelter for abused and exploited women.

    • Spicecake38 says:

      I suspected all along that this(Andrew),amongst other things are the reason H&M and babe will be incognito and good for them!👏👏👏
      The two most criticized for everything are the ones who are proving to have the most common sense and are taking the moral high ground-to heck with what anyone else says!

    • Mrs.Krabapple says:

      But how can the royal family treat him like a criminal without actually ADMITTING he’s a criminal? If they admit it’s true, Andrew has to face criminal charges, restitution, etc. And they dont want THAT. So how can they shun him without admitting it’s all true?

      • @hoangworld says:

        They could quietly retire him the way Princess Margaret was years ago over various things. The queen is the one with the track record of knighting him, giving him GCVO! That’s the Garter for the family. Harry isn’t admitted to it yet!!! Am sure she gave green light for the badly planned engagement party now redone. The queen is tone deaf because she is so privileged. Her advisors helped her navigate a lot of the politics of her job but comes family and she is blind.

      • noway says:

        I don’t think Prince Phillip will show up for the church stroll either, so if Andrew doesn’t show up, let’s all pray for that, then it’s like he’s retired. They aren’t necessarily admitting he’s a criminal. Which is okay I guess. Honestly, I don’t need them to accuse him of being a criminal. They are his family. It doesn’t matter what they think. I just want him to go away from public view. He should privately talk to all legal sources about this, and if he didn’t do anything they can prosecute please still leave public view cause it’s still gross. I’m just tired of hearing about him and his problems with being shunned which is the least he deserves. Please this is disgusting, and as far as prosecution please let’s get the madam of the sex ring, Maxwell. What she did is just as disgusting as Epstein, if not worse as the young girls trusted her.

    • Enny says:

      OK, TQ is ancient and I won’t begrudge her sharing what may be her last Xmas with her entire family, but can’t he just enter through a back door or something? Geez Louise…

  2. Chica1971 says:

    Oh boy! Guess he really thinks he is above the law. Thank goodness , Harry and Meghan won’t be blame for this sh**tshow. Given that another girl came forward, BP should know better, Andrew is not being truthful and this DRIP Drip drip is not good.

    • MoonTheLoon says:

      Don’t worry. The hateful Royal Reporters and courtiers will find a way to make it their fault. It’s a life’s mission, that.

      • HMC says:

        But of course. How can they be royals if they won’t hang out with sex traffickers and rapists?

  3. Rogue says:

    Roya from the Times reported that the Cambridges were considering having George& Charlotte among on the Sandringham walk (as I had speculated weeks ago) but were reconsidering if Andrew joined the walk.

    If there is anybody remotely smart in the royal household they will advise to keep Andrew hidden for a good while.

    • Digital Unicorn says:

      Of course they are – using children to distract from the family sex offender and financial crook.

    • (TheOG)@Jan90067 says:

      TQ will probably ride to and from church with Pedo. I’m laying odds on that. This way, even in the public lines up to boo, he’s not there to direct it at. Also, I doubt RPOs would allow signs calling him a POS Pedo along the way. Shame.

      • AnnaKist says:

        I was thinking the same. I saw a documentary the other day, and the Queen looks really doddery, much more so than her mum was at the same age. A car, probably with tinted windows, would save the queen’s legs, as well as hiding her sexpest son from view, while still keeping up appearances. Mind you, there are still many, many supporters of this family. I mean, who else would bother standing around on a freezing English Winter’s morning in the hope of catching a glimpse of this lot? Not me. I’d be rugged up in front of the fire with a pot of tea and a cat. Or doggie. But, it’s Summer here, and likely to be a scorcher on Christmas Day, so I’ll be in my cotton shortie pyjamas in the air con with a pot of tea and a cat. And doggies.

      • Maria says:

        Yes, he will probably ride with her. Problem is, BP is still denying that he was involved, so they can’t very well forbid him to accompany the family to church.

  4. Hannah says:

    Good Grief! I have NO words. Is nobody with 2 brain cells left to rub together advising HM just how bad this looks for the entire RF. That’s it. That’s all I got. SMDH

    • HK9 says:

      The only one it seems that has sense is Charles. Hopefully, he’s able to get Andrew out of the church walk business. It seems as if the Queen & the courtiers don’t have a clue how bad this is.

      • CuriousCole says:

        I’m curious to know what Anne’s take is on all this. I suspect she has the same sense as Charles and together they’d prove formidable in changing the Queen’s directive.

    • BayouBish says:

      This is the royal version of ‘not my child…he’s an angel.’

  5. Mellie says:

    I hope someone throws a bag of $hit on him.

    • MoonTheLoon says:

      The photos that would come of it would be hilarious! LOL

    • carmen says:

      lol I’m sure there are people who would pay money to see that!!!

    • Snap Happy says:

      First thing I thought was someone should bring a bunch of eggs.

    • (TheOG)@Jan90067 says:

      Sadly, not gonna happen. Wouldn’t the RPOs or reg. police search bags/people that are allowed to line up along the road? I doubt they’d let just any John & Jane Q. Public wander near TRF.

      • Bex says:

        I suspect that being as this takes place on a private estate that the so-called public are people who live and work on the estate. Being as they rely on the rf to have a roof over their heads and money in their pockets, I doubt that there’ll be any booing or eggs thrown.

    • Amy Too says:

      I really hope if he walks that people Boo at him. Loudly. And I really hope that George and Charlotte aren’t there because that would probably make people think twice about Booing and calling Andrew names. And if he’s there, and if it’s truly to “gauge how the public feels about him,” then there NEEDS to be protests. Loud, long, and super embarrassing for the royal family. They need to realize that they can’t just do whatever they want because they know that the people will be too awed by their majestic presence to even look at them sideways. That time is over. It’s time to stop the automatic curtsying and cheering for these people.

    • Spicecake38 says:

      I was hoping for rotten tomatoes and eggs!
      Seriously,I hope some people will Boo,when he gleefully walks by in all his perverted idiocy!

    • My3cents says:

      Walk of shame.

  6. Annie .. says:

    The problem is that the Christmas walk is not a ln official engagement or anything. It is a family affair, a family going to church (with photographers and everything, but still).
    This is why we see even not working royal members of the family like the Philips.

    I agree that Andrew is trash, but I get why he will be there. He is still a member of that family.

    Maybe instead of walking he could take the car?

    • Ainsley7 says:

      Or he could either skip church or go to the earlier service that the Queen goes to if he insists on going. The Queen goes to church twice on Christmas and the earlier service isn’t quite so public. Usually just some pap shots around the car. That would at least minimize the damage.

    • Anners says:

      My question is why he even bothers going to church. Surely he can’t believe any of the doctrine. I’ll give you I’m not all that up to date on CoE tenets, but I’m pretty sure No Christian religion is all that supportive of paedophiles who traffic underage teens. And it’s not like he’s showing a drop of remorse, either. Filthy hypocrites, the lot of them.

  7. Kiera says:

    Honestly if I lived in the UK I would get my butt up to that church and protest. If they are going to be stupid enough to have him walk then they should have to hear what the people think. Rabble rabble

  8. aquarius64 says:

    Gheez I can’t believe this. Do the Windsors want pockets of the crowd holding up signs and chant “Lock him up” as Andrew walks pass? This is a PR disaster waiting to happen. Right now the press is calling all body language and lip reading “experts” to see if they are available to give their take on the Sandringham Stroll for the new round of stories. The Cambridges can’t get out of it (no one else either now); they announced they will be there and “sources” made the point William played a role of Andrew getting the boot from royal public life. The Sussexes were smart to avoid this garbage. The walk to church at Christmas is officially the Walk of Shame.

  9. Eleonor says:

    I feel like Charles and probably Prince Philip might throw an hell of fit on this mess, to keep Andrew under lock.

  10. Annie .. says:

    Also, as someone mentioned above, it was speculated that this would be George and Charlotte’s first Christmas walk and it would make sense. This is the age William and Harry strated going, and more recently, the Philips girls.

    But with Andrew’s scandal so fresh and with him there, I don’t know .
    I kinda hope the Cambridges take the kids anyways, simply cause I love seeing the kiddies, but who knows

  11. African Violet says:

    Would people show up and show their disgust?

  12. Darla says:

    Listen, Harry and Meghan were not “smart” to avoid this. They were avoiding this due to other issues, namely they way they have been treated. It’s worked out very well for them no doubt, but they didn’t read the tea leaves and know this was coming.

    I don’t feel that William and Kate should have to appear with him either. Certainly they should not subject their children to this, nor allow pictures that will be around the rest of their children’s lives.

    • Lala11_7 says:

      How can you say that Meghan & Harry didn’t read the tea leaves regarding this? How they weren’t smart to avoid this BS? Their issues pale in comparison to THIS…THIS is what they worked hard to avoid…NOTHING else…As front and center as Andrew was BEFORE that interview? And how the Queen was acting like…”everything is normal” regarding this horror? It takes bold and savvy folks in those circumstances to make sure they avoid EXACTLY what’s happening…and you HAVE to be smart to perfectly forecast and avoid the blowback…

      You don’t have to give them their due…but history AND the present sure is!

      • Laur says:

        It’s pure luck that they made different plans, they can’t be the ONLY people in the RF who worked out this was going to blow up, Harry’s hardly the smartest tool in the box.

        This entire family is corrupt, and has been for hundreds of years. Just because they don’t have political power any more doesn’t make them less corrupt now. Don’t forget all of their shady associations and known paedophiles who have been linked with them prior to the Epstein mess. There are more skeletons in their collective closets that we’ll never hear about.

      • noway says:

        I don’t agree with either assertion on the Sussexes missing this, I think I’ll go with their word which was they are taking a well deserved in my opinion family break. I’m sure just like W&K they wanted the other non royal side of the family and friends to see their new family at Christmas. They have done quite a few projects since Archie was born, and the media has been hard on them. I think they did need a break. The one thing you can say is all of this Andrew stuff, has quieted the crap on the Sussexes for a while at least. Maybe they can have a nice holiday.

    • Lucy De Blois says:

      I have the felling Will and Kate will go. With the kids, I don’t know. But they know pretty well the press won’t through them under the bus, unlike Harry and Meghan (if they were there). And I bet anything H&M somehow knew Andrew’s scandal was going to blow (Harry is a senior royal, even if many trolls say the contrary, and he participates of the meetings and have access to inteligence services). So, they wanted to get as far as possible from the blow, or else, BP/KP would take them as a target to deflect the attention from the real news. And, of course, they wanted to be far from being the favorite punch bags of the bad press.

      • Darla says:


      • Becks1 says:

        I think H&M are skipping Christmas at Sandringham for a variety of reasons, and I do think Andrew is one of them. I think after seeing the Queen ride to church with Andrew at Balmoral, they probably realized what a ticking time bomb Andrew was (I don’t think that’s because they are super savvy and/or psychic, most of us on here were saying the Andrew situation was about to blow up, it seemed obvious to everyone except the Queen et al) and I feel like that was probably part of their choice to just bow out of Christmas. No photo ops of Meghan and Harry walking with Andrew.

        But like I said, I don’t think it was the only reason, and I feel like they probably would have skipped Christmas there anyway, without Andrew, but after the fallout from the interview, they probably feel very confident in their decision.

      • Jumpingthesnark says:

        Will and Kaye missed their window to go to the Midds for Xmas. I doubt they will have the kids do their first church walk this year. Andrew will overshadow it, they don’t want that, even the incompetent courtiers would have to agree because the kids are higher in succession than Andrew. They can reasonably wait a year or 2 at the kids ages.

      • GreenGirl says:

        I don’t think Meghan and Harry necessarily knew the stories with Andrew would blow up like they did when they initially decided to skip. However, I think it’s only solidified their decision not to go. If they had any doubts about making the right decision then, they don’t any more!

  13. Rapunzel says:

    Too bad the Pizza Express in Woking is closed on Christmas day or they could send him there.

    I hope Prince “I can’t sweat” is met by protesters throwing antiperspirants at him.

    • Pineapple says:

      Oooooooh Rapunzel, nicely done!! Throwing antiperspirants … genius. Pedophile rapist walking to church, too bad they are not Catholic. My gosh, this world, it is going to make my head explode.

      • Enn says:

        You do know that many Catholics, myself included, are disgusted by the Church’s “solution” of moving pedophile priests from parish to parish and yet struggling with our faith in light of it? We’re trying to reconcile the tenets of our faith and beliefs with the appalling actions of what are essentially religious politicians.

        Making a cheap Catholic joke is not a good look, and is disrespectful to the victims.

      • Erinn says:

        Hahahaha, as if the catholics are the only ones abusing kids. They’re just the ones getting caught, and they’re the easy scapegoats right now. There’s a whole lot of finger pointing from religious folks who are perfectly content with hiding their own molesters – it’s definitely in their best interest to keep the focus on the catholic church.

    • Birds eye view says:

      lol!! I would like to be one of them…he is a POS and should NOT be seen anywhere near th other royals at Xmas especially if the kids r going to be there…NO-ONE want a to see Andrew again..i hope Charles throws another wobbly and stops this.

  14. Sofia says:

    Of course he is.

  15. p says:

    Huge mistake Queeny. Andrew can never be seen again with the royal family, family event or not.

  16. emmy says:

    Hopefully nobody saves anyone from themselves and this whole thing ends soon. Burn it down, let H&M live in L. A. or something. W&Kate should be relieved as well.

  17. b says:

    If he walks, he will get booed.

  18. Sarah says:

    If you plan to be in the crowd for this walk, now is the time to start letting those tomatoes rot su they are perfect for throwing on Xmas morning.

  19. Rogue says:

    Andrew is still part of the family but he has made the family and institution look bad (rightly imho) such that it’s been a UK election topic. He’s had people question the Queen’s judgement (rightly again) and has had charities and orgs drop him which would have been unthinkable for a royal previously. Unlikely he will ever face a serious probe/consequences into his connection with Epstein so least he can do is lay low.

    My thinking with the Cambridges kids making a Sandringham appearance is that the media will surely pressure for a point of interest (no feud gate unlike last year and even if Andrew shows up will that get enough clicks, would they care to get body analysts in to see body language between him and e.g. Charles?) plus the family might want to end this terrible year with some good PR and everybody loves the kiddies.

    • Also, if the Cambridge children walk, whatever protestors might be in the crowd will probably tamp down their actions because of young children present. I think the children will walk to deflect from Andrew — as that’s the kind of PR behavior the royals practice. Without H&M present to deflect from Andrew, the children will be used.

      • Harla says:

        But there are always young children present even if the Cambridge children aren’t there. There’s the Phillip’s 2 daughters, the Wessex’s daughter and son, not to mention children in the crowd.

      • Nic919 says:

        It’s pretty gross if they trot out George and Charlotte to divert from pedo Andy. Charlotte wouldn’t be the age that the others tended to do the walk and George is borderline. If William and Kate truly want their kids to have a normal life they shouldn’t be using them as pawns to divert the media from pedo Andy. Claims of a normal life only go so far when you use your kids for positive PR. If Andy skips the walk then that’s different, but if he’s there the kids should stay with Carole and Mike.

  20. Mary says:

    This is exactly the sort of perverted result that will happen with the Queen’s “never complain, never explain” (ust forge on ahead) policy.

    Also, the Queen iand Andrew are daft if they think they can gauge the public’s opinion of Andrew l by the demeanor of the monarchists that show up at Sandringham Church on Xmas to cheer the Royal family on. Like someone else said above, I hope people show up to protest the Christmas walk (whether Andrew is there or not).

  21. OriginalLala says:

    I hope he/the BRF is met with protesters. These people are gross, time to go.

  22. Sassy says:

    Why should they shun him now? They all been knew of his connections to Epstein and have been happily chatting it up with him and strolling along side him since Epstein went to jail the first time. Now it’s suddenly an embarrassment to be around Andrew.

    • Harla says:

      I don’t believe that the family’s reaction has to do with Epstein or Andrew raping young women, it’s all about the money and perks that Andrew (and the rest of them) receive from “friends”. Now that that cat’s out of the bag, now they take action.

    • Tourmaline says:

      Right, the accusations and photo from Virginia Roberts have been public for almost 5 years —-and none of the Royal Family shunned him for all that time. What’s changed is his awful decision to give that interview which put him in a media furor. But let’s not act surprised that he will not be made persona non grata with this bunch. After all they only took his public duties away with reluctance due to other entities not wanting to associate with him.

      • Stephanie Hawkins says:

        They probably think it’s bs anyway. Charlie wanted Andrew out regardless of Virginia. They don’t care about her. This has been around since 2011 before William wedding and Andrew still went

  23. Digital Unicorn says:

    Hmm, I think this story is a float to see the public reaction to him doing the pap walk. A 2nd girl has now come forward to say she also had sex with Prince Porky Fingers and she is currently talking to the Feds.

    Him walking with the family on Boxing day is really the worst PR move in the history of PR moves and tells me that Chuck is struggling to persuade Mummy to cut Andrew loose. The Fail had another piece about his financial crookery and they called for a public enquiry into how he got his fortune. The Queen has to realise that this is going to get so much worse and she is damaging the Monarchy by continuing to allow him to be publicaly part of the family,

    • Guest2.0 says:

      Interesting how things turn out. According to the RRs and courtiers Harry & Meghan would be the ones to “bring down the monarchy, not the Monarch’s son.

  24. Jen says:

    Good. I say let him walk. Let people protest. Let people see this disgusting family for who they are instead of making excuse after excuse for the Queen.

  25. sue denim says:

    for some reason I’m thinking of Charles in all of this, imagining how hard it must have always been for him to see his mother favor such an awful, pale comparison to himself. I’m no big fan of Charles but I do think he’s tried his best to earn his way to his role through education and service, def w missteps along the way but at least he’s tried. So…there’s something flawed w the Queen too, fundamentally, and long before the current revelations, for her to favor PA so.

    • BayTampaBay says:

      Charles will make a good King.

    • Enn says:

      Agree with you 100%.

    • Sam Louise says:

      Agree wholeheartedly. I never thought I’d say this, but, I’m looking forward to Charles becoming king.

      • sue denim says:

        I actually think the monarchy may not survive brexit and a transition to PC, and personally I think it’s long past its expiration date. I was just thinking more about the family dynamics and the queen’s limitations as a mother, and just seeing it from PC’s pov w all of this.

    • noway says:

      I think Charles will make a good King, but it is funny how the opinion has changed over the years. Not too long ago everyone wanted to bypass Charles for William. So the winds of society change quite readily.

  26. Becks1 says:

    I don’t think he’s going to do it. I agree this is a test balloon to see what the reaction is.

    On the flip side, maybe the royal family really is that dense when it comes to PR and they think this will be totally fine.

    • Nic919 says:

      They thought the car ride with the Queen the day after Epstein died was a good idea. I really don’t think they see how bad this is. Maybe Charles does but that’s about it.

  27. Myra says:

    Royal Family without Harry/Meghan reminds me why I really didn’t follow them before…BORING

  28. Lisa says:

    Very stupid thing to do. Just glad Harry and Meghan are away from the mess.

  29. Babs says:

    I think I’m the only one that doesn’t want Andrew to go away quietly. I want him to burn the whole thing down on his way out, LOL. 😂😂I also believe the queen is petty and she wants the monarchy to end with her. Thats why shes sabotaging everything Charles would inherit. I think she be like, if I can’t have it no one else will. 😁😁😁

    • Dorothy says:

      Makes sense actually 🤷🏽‍♀️-adjusts tin foil hat proudly

    • SIPNBUBBLY says:

      This is the best theory I’ve seen in a while. 😂

    • booboocita says:

      Don’t know about the Queen, but I’d be willing to bet good money that that’s exactly what Andrew intends. He’s not ever going to be king unless some terrible freak accident wipes out Harry, William, and all their progeny. And his older brother makes no secret of his disdain for him. Andrew’s egotistical, narcissistic mindset is just the sort that would think, if not me, and no one likes me, then why not wipe out the entire Firm? That’ll show them …

  30. Jamie says:

    I wonder who will walk next to him. Maybe Bea since she’s already been dragged into Andrew’s mess, but she doesn’t need to be giving people another reminder.
    The photos of Andrew walking to church with the rest of the family will be everywhere; who (besides the Queen) would want to be seen next to him at this point?

  31. Becklu says:

    Like I’m truly shocked at the arrogance of this man and not all at the same time. But like wow?!? Just wow- I’m basically speechless.

    • (TheOG)@Jan90067 says:

      I feel the same way. But then again, the unmitigated arrogance of Pedo is off the scale. I truly believe that *he* believes he didn’t do ANYTHING wrong, that it wasn’t “rape” (as in, who *wouldn’t* want to be with (in HIS mind) a handsome (GAG) member of the BRF). These trafficked girls were just toys, vessels for HIS enjoyment, and nothing more. Not flesh and blood females with feelings of their own.

      I’m sure Pedo STILL doesn’t understand what was “wrong” about anything he’s done, with Epstein, with the victims, or with his shady dealings (financial and giving away govt. info to his “buddies” for compensation).

      • Becklu says:

        Oh yeah you’re completely right but it so shocking that anyone can be that obtuse. But he doesn’t think he was wrong so you’re right. I can’t believe no one is telling the royal family nope. Or the queen can’t see it. But I saw up thread that maybe this is a test balloon, and I hope that is true and he doesn’t walk.

      • Louisa says:

        Pretty sure his mother feels the same. Doesn’t think he did anything wrong.

      • Jane'sWastedTalent says:

        Agree 100%.

  32. Lucy says:

    This fool is unbelievable. He really thinks he’s superior and untouchable, and has his out-of-touch aging Mummy wrapped around his finger. If the Windsors (especially the Queen) couldn’t see that Epstein & co was a problem, it means they’re surrounded by those types so much that it never occurs to them. There are so many other pedos that the other family members have been close to, like Rolf Harris, Jimmy Savile (Charles’ friend) and Charles’ pedo bishop friend that he kept making excuses for and even housed on Duchy of Cornwall lands. The Queen knighted most of them too. So they’re all problematic, not just Andrew. The whole thing is rotten.

    • Laur says:

      Absolutely agree. Let’s not forget all of these people think they are chosen by God and that they are better than us by virtue of their birth. The entire thing is financially and morally corrupt and disgusting and we should get rid of them. And those who think Harry is the second coming since he met Meghan need a reality check. He grew up in this family, he’s just as corrupt as the rest of them. She deserves better and she’s probably realising what a mess of a family she’s married into.

    • Elisa says:

      ITA, and especially Charles connection to the pedo bishop hardly got any attention in the recent media coverage. That’s why I`m convinced Charles is pulling a lot of strings with the media.

  33. Lucy De Blois says:

    No. The security will never, ever allow it.

  34. adastraperaspera says:

    Perp walk.

  35. Enn says:

    Charles’ blood pressure must be through the roof.

  36. ShazBot says:

    Do they really think that the people who go line up on Christmas day to watch the Royal Family walk by are a good gauge of the public? If he was ever going to get a decent reception, it would be from those exact people.

  37. Tourmaline says:

    Has anyone protested him at an appearance anywhere thus far? I kind of doubt anyone will bother to trek up to Sandringham to do so.

  38. kerwood says:

    Of course he’s going to walk. As far as he and apparently most of his family are concerned, he hasn’t done anything wrong. I hope the Queen forces Normal Bill and Keen Katie to walk beside him to protect him from protests and flying objects.

    I think this is a good and smart move on the Sussexes part, but I KNOW that this is going to be turned around to make it ALL ABOUT HOW HORRIBLE THEY ARE. How they’re breaking the Queen’s heart and how it could be Prince Phillip’s LAST pap walk. They’ll cover up for the sex offender by throwing the Sussexes to the wolves. AGAIN.

    • Nic919 says:

      Somehow I don’t think Phillip will attend. I think if he went last year it was by car, but I think he’s skipping everything he can.

  39. Lady D says:

    My dream is an airplane waving a Prince Pedo banner over the church, warning the crowd. Or have someone monkey with the PA system at the church so the masses are greeted and then warned to keep their children close, there’s a pedophile in the crowd.

    • (TheOG)@Jan90067 says:

      Thing is, Pedo goes for teenage girls, not “little” kids (ie: boys, too). It would be better if they warned them to keep their teenaged girls close. More on point.

    • RoyalBlue says:

      And while we’re at it, keep his grubby hands off the collection basket.

      The only redemption for Andy will come when he admits to his follies, apologizes to the victims, offers to speak to the authorities, swears off crown property and income and then volunteer in soup kitchens forever. It’s the Christian way, confess and penance.

  40. aquarius64 says:

    If they bring the kids out for the walk if could backfire for using them as human shields. And some guy made a death threat on George at five years of age. Let’s not assume no one won’t get ugly because children are present.

  41. Valiantly Varnished says:

    You know when The Sussexes decided to spend Christmas elsewhere sooo many people were complaining about the “optics”. And all I have to say to that is…LOLOL.
    Let’s talk about the “optics” of The DoLittles and Chaz and Cam walking to Church next to Pedo Andy. LOLOL.

  42. Lisabella says:

    In a PERFECT WORLD, I’d love to see NO ONE come out to see the Royals do their walk to Xmas church services.

  43. DP says:

    The Sussex’s are smart to stay away!

  44. Ann says:

    Charles (and William) and others can choose to NOT walk if Andrew walks. If the Queen and Andrew walk, but no one else . . . OMG. That would be epic. What’s she going to do . . . fire them?

  45. Jaded says:

    I would love to see Andrew do the church walk while a crowd of protesters plasters him with rotten eggs and tomatoes yelling “Off to the Tower you effin’ pedo! “Off With Your Head you feckless c*nt!”

  46. Marianne says:

    Is the Royal Christmas Walk for the Glory of God, or for the GLORY of the royal family?? I personally think it’s shameful for the royal family to make a BIG PR stunt out of going to church services celebrating Christ’s birth.. They are showing off… And as far as Andrew walking goes?? People better watch getting too close, lightning may be striking close by..

    • Mary says:

      That is why, to me, this really is a PUBLIC Royal event (and not a private one) and he should not be allowed to take part therein. Let him walk to the early morning, private, service.

  47. Charfromdarock says:

    This is superficial I know, but he looks like he is rotting from the inside out.

  48. heygingersnaps says:

    I hope he does it if only to show how tone deaf the queen really is.

  49. Eugh says:

    May he be pelted with 1000 Art Basel bananas

  50. Sparkly says:

    They really are inept, even their crisis managers. Why would he need to walk Sandringham to gauge public interest? Sites like this have been trying to hold him accountable, real and trash news have been covering it, I’ve seen people are over the Instagram for months calling them out, his interview bombed horribly and people made it well known what they think of him…and that’s outside of the fact that pedophilia (or whatever the semantic word for teens), rape, and sex trafficking are common sense dealbreakers for any remotely decent human being.

  51. PrincessK says:

    I think he will come through the back entrance.
