The royal establishment and the royal-commentator industry moves back and forth on “the Sussex drama” and “the Prince Andrew drama.” One day, those commentators want to pair the Sussexes with Prince Andrew, like they’re all equally scandalous, equally controversial, equally disappointing to the Queen. The next day, they forget all about the Queen’s blatant efforts to protect and shield Andrew and they make it all about how Meghan and Harry are simply the worst. The fact that we have such a stark contrast – in the same timeline – between how these two storylines are handled is a remarkable thing. One royal figure was bullied, smeared and faced an endless barrage of racist harassmen. She was then punished by being stripped of her “royal” status after she dared to push back. The other royal figure raped a trafficked teenager, refuses to even submit to an FBI interview about his criminal behavior, and still holds and uses his HRH and his royal status. He still lives in his giant royal mansion, and attends church with the Queen. As I said, the contrast is stark. God bless Gloria Allred for continuing to remind everyone of Prince Andrew’s criminal acts:
This weekend, Londoners may have spotted Prince Andrew’s face plastered on the side of an American-styled yellow school bus circling Buckingham Palace. “If you see this man,” the bus’s sign stated, “please ask him to call the FBI to answer their questions.” The message included a number to the FBI’s national press office, as well as the address to U.S. lawyer Gloria Allred’s website. Allred, who represents several victims of Jeffrey Epstein’s sex trafficking ring, tells HarpersBAZAAR.com in a statement why she organized the blunt advertisement.
“I have been urging him to speak with the FBI re Jeffrey Epstein on radio and television and by sending a letter to his home in Dec. 2019. I represent 5 victims of Jeffrey Epstein and I have filed 3 lawsuits in New York on behalf of 3 of his victims whom he sexually abused when they were underage,” Allred says. “He did not respond to my letter and as far as I know he did not respond to the U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York who held a press conference recently and also urged Prince Andrew to speak with the FBI.”
In her statement to BAZAAR.com, Allred continues, “I believe that victims have been denied justice in the case of Jeffrey Epstein. At the very least they deserve the truth. Prince Andrew could and should provide what he knows to the FBI, because they are still conducting an investigation into who may have conspired with Jeffrey Epstein to sex traffic underage girls to him.”
This just reminded me of the fact that the day after Jeffrey Epstein’s mysterious death in a New York prison, Prince Andrew and the Queen were all smiles as they rode to church together (see photo below). I still feel like… there should absolutely be more conspiracy theories about this, especially in regards to Andrew and the Queen’s involvement. Anyway… yes, it should be a blaring headline in all of the British papers that Andrew is still hiding from the FBI after repeatedly promising that he would cooperate with authorities. I wonder why it’s not a headline. Oh right. Because Meghan.
