Prince Andrew will be ‘sneaked back’ into royal life even as he avoids the FBI

Duke of York Pitch@Palace event

HRH Prince Andrew, the Duke of York and Mummy’s Favorite Large Adult Son, did not attend the Commonwealth Day service at Westminster Abbey. We knew ahead of time that he would not be there. The conspiracists among us might even suggest that all of the Sussex and Cambridge drama was merely a smokescreen thrown up by Liz of House Petty to draw focus away from her favorite son. As it turns out, Mummy also allowed her predator son to attend a memorial service for a courtier yesterday:

Prince Andrew returned to royal life yesterday — as he “shut the door” on co-operating with the Jeffrey Epstein paedophile probe. The under-fire Duke of York, 60, attended a memorial service for a senior courtier with Her Majesty’s blessing while she was at Westminster Abbey.

His comeback will shock many — and the fact it came when the Queen was at the Commonwealth Day Service will fuel suspicion that he was being “sneaked back” into royal life.

Pals say he is on a high after hiring new lawyers to defend his name in the US. One said: “He was dipping his toe in the water by going to the service but plans to go to more engagements soon. He’s innocent. He doesn’t see why he shouldn’t return to royal duties. He still has a lot to offer.”

Buckingham Palace said Andrew went to the memorial for Sir Malcolm Ross at St George’s Chapel in Windsor in a “personal” capacity. Sir Malcolm died last October, aged 76.

Andrew stepped down from public life last year after failing to show sympathy for Epstein’s victims in a Newsnight interview. Epstein killed himself in prison.

This is the problem with the royal family and the royal reporters who cover them in a f–king nutshell: “Andrew stepped down from public life last year after failing to show sympathy for Epstein’s victims in a Newsnight interview.” Ah, yes, because everyone knows that Andrew’s biggest crime was a mere lack of sympathy. Not the actual crimes of human trafficking, sexual abuse, rape and statutory rape. Not because he was spent the interview lying and caping for his BFF, the dead rapist human trafficker Jeffrey Epstein.

In case you missed it with the smokescreen Cambridge-Sussex drama, I did a story about how Andrew has hired a lawyer who specializes in extradition cases. And in America, a US Attorney has said publicly that Andrew has “closed the door” on cooperating:

Prince Andrew has refused to cooperate in the investigation of Jeffrey Epstein’s network of enablers, the U.S. attorney in Manhattan said Monday.

“Contrary to Prince Andrew’s very public offer to cooperate with our investigation into Epstein’s co-conspirators, an offer that was conveyed via press release, Prince Andrew has now completely shut the door on voluntary cooperation,” U.S. Attorney Geoffrey Berman said, adding that his office is “considering its options.”

Federal investigators have been trying for months to speak with Andrew, a longtime friend of Epstein, who has been accused by one alleged victim of sexual abuse.

Not that I would expect the Windsors to employ logic, nor would I expect the royal reporters to actually call these motherf–kers out, but it certainly LOOKS BAD that Andrew and his dear mummy keep on insisting on his utter innocence, all while HRH Andrew is assembling a legal team to fight even being *questioned* by the FBI? And why aren’t more of these nitpicking royal reporters even bothered by the Queen’s attempts to rehabilitate Andrew’s public image… while all of this is still happening, while he’s actively avoiding the FBI?

    Maybe Andrew is the Queen’s favorite because they have similar personalities.

    So she sees nothing wrong with him avoiding the FBI or any other law enforcement agency.

    • And who is paying for this new team of lawyers? I’ll bet Mummy.

      • Ruby_Woo says:

        This is what annoys me the most. The press nitpics literally everything Harry and Meghan might spend on, yet you have a man who is battling to not be questioned about sex crimes and not one reporter has mentioned who is paying for it. Gross!

  2. OriginalLala says:

    He is avoiding the FBI because he is guilty and also a super entitled, privileged rapist who think his “birthright” (*barf*) as a prince protects him from consequences.

    • kellebelle says:

      I just cannot with this arrogant, POS liar. I’ve lost all respect for that family. Harry and Meghan made a very wise move, very.

    • Redgrl says:

      @original – just when I think the cesspool can’t get worse it does. His shady business dealings, his known associations with oligarchs, dictators and human rights abusers, his sexual abuse of girls – it’s just disgusting. I hope the FBI and whatever other agencies can assist hound him until the day he dies in disgrace. (Preferably in jail, but I’m too cynical to believe that’s going to happen).

      • lizzieb says:

        Didn’t he also hang with arms dealers? Amazing how he was able to amass a large fortune on his cut of deals. Few aboveboard things pay so much. Since we haven’t heard of him being involved in new tech or medical discoveries I have to suspect some shady deals during his time as trade facilitator or whatever his title was.

  3. MsIam says:

    There was a tweet by Richard Palmer who accused the Sussexes of only wanting press around them that were “sycophantic and unwilling to ask the hard questions”. I almost spit my coffee out at that one. The RR are not going to touch Andrew with a twenty-foot pole.

    • Well MisIAm —- maybe to Palmer a hard question is: Meghan why did you break royal protocol and disrespect the Queen by wearing that color nail polish? Whereas most of us would think a hard question might be defined as: Andrew just why the f*** are you so lawyered up if you didn’t do anything?

    • Ruby_Woo says:

      Didn’t Richard accuse the queen for breaking the law because the Sussexes didn’t want to disclose Archie’s godparents? I remember him tweeting how he had spent an entire 24hours just researching this. He should have been researching Andrew’s legal funds!

  4. emme says:

    I hope the FBI keeps on him! This is crazy.

  5. Spikey says:

    “He doesn’t see why he shouldn’t return to royal duties. He still has a lot to offer.”

    What exactly does he have to offer? If he had a successful track record of “influence peddling” wouldn’t we have heard about it? Wouldn’t every article about him lead with “Prince Sh*thead who secured the funding of Dubai’s largest sewage treatment plant” or something like that? Instead we read about how he’s Mummy’s favourite… huh.

    • Ruby_Woo says:

      Well after his awful interview, there were so many reports that Andrew’s stepping down was a real loss to the charities he represented… really? And they kept talking about his Pitch in Palace scheme, which I had never heard of. Then it turned out that he was actually taking a cut of profits from the Pitch scheme, so much for helping others!

  6. nicegirl says:

    I’m barfing in my shoe over this asshole. And his mother. Unbelievable gall.

  7. Andrew’s Nemesis says:

    Any British constitutional lawyers on here? If I were to set up a petition to be heard in the House (as is the law if the number of signatories reaches a certain amount) could the government compel him to cooperate with law enforcement officials?

    • Insomia says:

      NO no one in the uk can understand why the queen has always from the start always favoured him.

  8. nicegirl says:

    Liz of House Petty!!!!! Love love love this

  9. nicegirl says:

    He’s the worst, scariest, ugliest, sweatiest vampire. Barftastic this one and his Mumsy. DIS GUST

  10. GR says:

    I think part of the problem with hereditary titles and royalty is that most of them genuinely believe that they are better than the peons. I wonder how the rf/rr/courtiers would be reacting if the Duke of Yuck had raped girls with titles.

    • Snazzy says:

      exactly this. they truly believe they are better. He would have never raped girls with titles as they are not “lesser”, like everyone else is. this family makes me want to barf

  11. Lyn says:

    I’m quite surprised the FBI have been dogged with this, thought they would have backed iff by now or been made to. I wonder if maybe they have hard evidence against him. I always remember reading that they never ask you questions they dont already have the answer or some proof to. And they better if they are coming for the Queen of England’s son.

    • I will bet that the worst that will ever happen to Andrew has already been done by Queen being made to force him to step down — not for his probable illegal behavior with Epstein —- but because he gave a PR disaster of an interview that got some rumbles. He’s never going to be deposed, extradited or held accountable. And even this current family “punishment” only seems to be temporary.

  12. Jay says:

    Congrats to the Cambridges, you’ve successfully pushed out Meghan and Harry to make room for this creep at aaaaall the balcony waves and church strolls. Good plan!

  13. Elizabeth says:

    I had the weirdest dream last night, that the Dukes of Gloucester and Kent got together and decided he was humiliating the Family. They threw him into a basement room at the Palace and put him before a firing squad, then hung his body from the balcony while millions of people cheered. In my defense, I will say that I’ve been sick and I may have had a fever.

    • Olenna says:

      OMG! I hope you’re on the mend ’cause that sounded like a nightmare!

      • Elizabeth says:

        Sinus infection. Strong antibiotics, sleeping with a cough drop in my mouth and Kleenex in each hand, lots and lots of yogurt, etc. Wouldn’t wish it on my worst enemy.
