A senior Royal has confirmed the Queen is pissed off and Charles wants him stripped of his Royal title and sent into exile for the stupidity,
ignorance and arrogance of appearing infront of the press in an unscreened interview.
They haven't mentioned or cited anything about how stupid, ignorant, naive or having any moral objection to his relationship with Epstein, inviting a
convicted pedophile and child sex trafficker to his daughters 18th birthday (which was attended by young children of the Royals) or for being a
repeat child rapist - they're cool with all that; it's the whole speaking to the press about it that's suddenly shown 'shocking lack of judgement and
awareness making his position as an active Royal untenable'.
The only current defence he's receiving from the Palace is over claims by various former politicians and government ministers that Andrew used the
phrase 'ni**er in the woodpile' to refer to Arabs when dining with the Saudi Royal Family and something along the lines of calling them 'A bunch of
camel #ers' - but that has potential serious implications to the Royals and National Security as a whole:
The MET had dropped their investigation into Andrew, Scotland Yard somehow cleared him late August - but word is that the FBI and Scotland Yard are
working together and there's mounting pressure on Scotland Yard to release details of their investigation and for the logs and records of Prince
Andrew's security detail to be released to expose his pizza lie and other things.
Because it's become such a big international story, there's no PR agent to stonewall press enquiries or destroy evidence, it's a rare occasion where
the press will have unlimited resources to keep this story running and authorities/home secretary under heavy scrutiny. There's decades of rumour,
conjecture and photographs/film of him meeting and greeting young women who may be overage but personally I'd be asking them why they aren't in school
but nothing that'd passs the criteria for proof/publication editors, lawyers and newspaper managers require to avoid libel.
So far it's not looking good for him. The Torygraph usually defend the royals and allow MI5/MI6 to write for them, it's the closest to State
controlled media the UK has and provides the best guide to deduce what tactics MI5/MI6 are using to manipulate public perception.
Instead of defending him they're one of they're hanging him out to dry and were the first to announce he was acting 'rogue' and didn't inform the
Queen until after the interview took place, broke every rule the Palace/Firm have and they're distancing themselves from him with former Palace staff
and Prince Andrew's former head of security going on the record saying he has to have full public police investigation and appear in court. They're
not asking for or hiding behind source anonymity when actively approaching the press and making such massive claims which means from experience they
know they won't face retribution or character assassination from the Palace or MI5/MI6.
With the election coming up - both Labour and Tory MPs, former aides, former members of government are actively approaching the press and spilling any
dirt and providing a treasure trove of sleaze and scandals about him. Again they're happy to put their name to their claims instead of asking for
anonymity and will be fully aware of the powers, potential and practical methods intel and the palace would usually be using.
It's a dramatic change - usually it's impossible to find someone willing to make a comment even off the record. Instead they're queuing up outside
radio, tv, newspapers. Providing scandals that'd been covered up for decades and have no fear of putting their face and name to the claims.
Personally I think he's been stripped of any Palace or Intel protection, it's become an open secret in press and political circles and open season has
been declared on him.
If he'd followed intel, pr, legal or palace advice he would have just asked for a super-injunction covering his links with Epstein making it illegal
for the press to write or report about any of this and had complete immunity from public scrutiny.
