It is a known fact that Queen Elizabeth II is an opinionated leader who is not shy to say exactly how she feels about her own children.
In the past few months, Prince Andrew, Duke of York, who is the third child of Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, has been grabbing negative headlines after it was revealed that he has very close ties to both late convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein and the financier’s former girlfriend, Ghislaine Maxwell.
Epstein’s accuser, Virginia Giuffre, (formerly known as Virginia Roberts), has accused both Epstein and U.K.’s Prince Andrew of sexually abusing her at the age of 17.
Giuffre did a bombshell interview where she confessed that she was introduced to Prince Andrew in 2001, they hade dinner, danced at Tramp night club in London, and they had sex at Maxwell’s house in Belgravia.
She stated: “He is the most hideous dancer I’ve ever seen in my life. His sweat was like it was raining basically everywhere.”
Giuffre went on to explain that Maxwell gave her instructions to follow before having sex with the prince.
She added: “In the car, Ghislaine tells me that I have to do for Andrew what I do for Jeffrey and that just made me sick.”
In the Prince Andrew & the Epstein Scandal: The Newsnight Interview, the prince was quizzed about Epstein’s sex trafficking allegations, and he said this: “We now know that at the time, there was no indication to me or anybody else that that was what he was doing and certainly when I saw him either in the United States. And if there was, you have to remember that at the time I was Patron of the NSPCC’s Full Stop campaign so I was close up with what was going on in those time about getting rid of abuse to children, so I knew what the things were to look for, but I never saw them.”
The BBC Newsnight interview was a fiasco, the Queen did not like what she saw, and not many believed the prince, which is why he was booted from his role as a working royal.
Yet, the Queen left many baffled when she decided to publicly step out with Andrew — the pair went horse
horse riding and attended church service in Norfolk.
However, the reality is that the Queen knows exactly who her son is and does not have a high opinion of him. According to ITV, via a royal insider, this is how the Queen feels about her son: “Even his mother is said to have once observed that her middle son is ‘not always a ray of sunshine.'”
Prince Charles does not think the world of his brother and once described him as a “fizzy drink that has been shaken up, and the top is taken off.”
Things are getting exposed.
