The Depth of the Connection Between Epstein and Prince Andrew
It is clear that Jeffrey Epstein is not someone the royal family wants to be associated with, but they are through Prince Andrew.
Epstein was an American financier who specialised in investments for the ultra-wealthy. It is unclear how he started this business or where the initial investment money came from. In 2008, he pleaded guilty to soliciting a fourteen-year-old and served thirteen months. He was arrested again in July 2019 and committed suicide a month later whilst in custody.
Epstein and Prince Andrew Meet
Prince Andrew admits to meeting Epstein in 1999 after Ghislaine Maxwell introduced them; although Andrew has stated they were not that close, they attended several functions together, including a holiday on a yacht in Thailand that Epstein paid for. Andrew has also stayed with him on several occasions in his New York apartment, Palm Beach and on his private island.
Epstein also attended Princess Beatrice’s eighteenth birthday at Winsor Castle in 2006, two months after the arrest warrant was issued. However, Prince Andrew states that he was unaware of this and did not invite Epstein; instead, he came as Maxwell’s plus one. He made these claims in the same documentary where he stated that he stayed with Epstein when he was breaking off the relationship because it was convenient.
During this interview, he also stated that he was not with Roberts but in Pizza Express, Woking with his family. Can you remember what you did two years ago on a specific night? He also made the ludicrous statement that he could not sweat as he was injured during the war.
The interview was primarily seen as one of the biggest facades ever and did little for Andrew’s reputation. However, this was not the only area where his conduct was questionable. After Epstein was released from prison for his first offence, Prince Andrew met with him to negotiate a deal where the financier paid off £15000 of debt, Sarah Ferguson; his ex-wife had run-up.
The Charges Against the Prince
It is also reported that in 2015, Prince Andrew had sex with the then fifteen-year-old Virginia Roberts Giuffre. However, Prince Andrew states he can’t remember the meeting even though pictures exist of the two together.
I have heard people saying that Giuffre was old enough to know better, that she knew what she was getting into and is now trying to make money off the monarchy. The fact remains that whether Giuffre was a minor or not, Prince Andrew used his position to elicit sex from a younger woman. The police see this as an offence; it is why teacher-students relationships are banned, as it is an abuse of power, regardless of the age of both parties.
Standard grooming practices make victims seem complicit in the crime, when in fact, they are just as much a victim. These cases have been brought to light with the Rotherham sex scandal and have been mentioned with allegations against Michael Jackson. Some questions need to be answered by Prince Andrew on these allegations.
Another factor that points to Prince Andrew’s guilt is an email that he sent to Maxwell; this message was sent days after Andrew had been named in court documents:
Let me know when we can talk. Got some specific questions to ask you about Virginia Roberts — Prince Andrew
In August 2019, a second girl came forward to say that she had sex with Prince Andrew. Shortly after this revelation, Epstein committed suicide in prison.
The US attorney dealing with the case, Geoffrey Berman, states that Andrew had offered no help and had refused to speak to them. Furthermore, Scotland Yard has declined to confirm Prince Andrew’s location on the night of the alleged assault even though they keep a daily record of the whereabouts of the royal family. They legally destroy these every two years, so the case has likely been held up long enough to remove them.
Two aspects of this story have recently come to light, which may further alter the public’s opinion on Prince Andrew. The first is speculation has occurred that it was Sarah Ferguson that introduced Prince Andrew to Epstein. She had been caught previously selling introductions to her husband for £500000. At the time, she thought she was selling an introduction to an Indian businessman, who later turned out to be an undercover journalist. Did she do the same to Epstein? We already know that she was short of money.
The second revelation is that Epstein was a Mossad agent blackmailing prominent political figures for secrets to send back to Israel. This would make sense as Robert Maxwell, Ghislaine’s father, was accused of a similar crime. Was Prince Andrew a victim of this set-up? If so, what secrets did he have to sell?
I do not believe that we will ever get the answers that ultimately uncovers whether Prince Andrew is guilty or his connection with Epstein. Royalty and the institution will ensure that he never answers for his crimes if any, as it could lead to the end of the monarchy. The best that anyone can hope, especially the girls caught up in this terrible life, is that Maxwell speaks the truth on trial, the whole truth and not just her truth.
