I agree KF..no business there what so ever ....only reason he admits to making a mistake is because he got caught with his hands in the cookie jar IMO

This story is getting bigger by the day. This is just one of the stories being carried by the Telegraph. I have also posted it in the Royal Wedding thread as I am increasingly of the opinion that the rushed engagement/wedding is damage limitation in the hope it would take the flack for this story. The press has known about this for ten years. A story going around says it was about to break late last year and they kept the lid on it for a while longer.

P.S. The son of a very good friend of mine served under PA in the navy and he was generally loathed and regarded as an arrogant pig. And has Fergie been a fall guy for him?

It's really unravelling now and the papers are all on to it. I would imagine the palace has tried to keep a very tight lid on it but in the end the truth will out. According to the Telegarph there are major concerns at the highest level of Govt now and some secret meeting between PA and senior Govt official has taken place.

The Daily Mail reported about Andrew's visit to Epstein's NYC residence back in December, right after it occurred. I'm more apt to think his associations with Libya are the straw that broke the camel's back, so to speak. And perhaps Andrew's scandal is the diversion from a Middleton one. There's something about the Middleton camp that the media is sitting on~my women's intuition is sure of it!

Hanging by a thread: Major setback for Prince Andrew as Vince Cable refuses to back him as trade envoy

Quote
Prince Andrew's hopes of surviving as a UK trade envoy suffered a major setback last night when Business Secretary Vince Cable refused to say he should stay in the post.

Mr Cable, whose department is responsible for UK Trade and Investment (UKTI), where the Duke is a special representative, said he had made a ‘valuable contribution’ to UKTI’s work.

But crucially, asked if the Prince should continue in the role, Mr Cable’s spokeswoman said: ‘No comment.’

Former Foreign Office Minister: Why I thought Andrew should go – and still do

Quote
I first met the Duke of York back in November 2004 when he came to visit the Rhondda Sea Cadets in Llwynypia in my constituency.

The youngsters were really excited to have a Royal visit and I confess it all went swimmingly – or at least it did until we discovered the following day that he hadn’t driven to Rhondda as any sane person would.

^ Now we know why he was never tough with Fergie, why he has stood by her and why he has continued to support her. Birds of a feather and all that ...  hall-whistle

Who knew?   X-Mas_rolleyes

And, it makes me wonder what dirty little secrets Fergie knows about.  easter-think

I think that this is just the tip of the iceberg ... Andrew's cavorting with that young model on that yacht was nauseating for a man of his age and position.  ick

I think someone has been waiting to expose him, quite frankly, as he isn't very popular at all; he has rubbed many people the wrong way, and is arrogant, IMO. It's a shame because when I was growing up, he was always presented as the very sexy, hot Prince, whereas Charles was just the posh, boring future King.

I WILL NOT QUIT, VOWS 'SMEARED' PRINCE ANDREW

The Duke of York has told friends he believes he is the victim of a smear campaign and has no intention of standing down as the UK’s special representative for international trade and investment as he has done “nothing improper”.
Quote
“Does he need to change? Yes, he knows that. There will be a period of taking stock. But will he quit? No, and he has the full support of the Palace. He has been attacked from all sides and there are people who clearly want his scalp, but he insists he’s done nothing improper.”

Hanging out with a Sex offender that has been convicted of such a crime is Not Nothing!!! and it is very improper.  Who is this jerk trying to kid... himself.  And for the Palace backing him up what a Shame.  IMO this tells me that PA and the Ones backing him up.  That it's ok to hang and run with People that are Known Child Molesters.

"Taking stock"?  This sounds, to me, like the epitomy of arrogance and 'don't touch my robe' thinking.  What exactly does he mean by knowing he's done something wrong and then in the same train of thought to think that he can continue as before with no consequences?  This boggles my mind.  There has GOT to be some accountability and I'm sorry, but I'm rather disappointed in HM for not taking a stronger, global stand on this, son or no.

Well ... although this could be perceived as a smear campaign, Andrew is hardly a victim. In the wrong place at the wrong time with the wrong friends? Perhaps. However, his insolence in not taking more of the blame and shame for his bad judgments is reprehensible and will only lead to more anger on the part of those already insensed. And the pattern of bad judgment has obviously filtered down to his daughters' most recent choice in entertainment venue. ...

There's something very wrong with this picture. Why are the royals normalizing seedy behaviors and not even affected by the perversity of it all? Or so it seems! It's just not right to be condoning such sick & twisted behaviors that have seemingly pervaded the upper eschelons of British society. ...

I don't know that I agree Andrew should lose his position or step down as trade envoy, as I believe he's really not that bad compared to some of the company he keeps. Unfortunately, it's the way of the world in many business circles where power, wealth, and ingratiations have gone to men's heads. However, Andrew needs to turn his back on such company and be the better person by refusing to do business with such people. Ahhh, but then there would be money lost for Britain and apparently the most important point to his work is the almighty dollar! Such a shame.

Go figure, Charles hasn't at least been cavorting with models and underage KIDS! I am more than sure while the press bashed Charles, that they never realized what Adnrew would get up to! With anyone normal, siad man would be hanging by a rope.

Honestly, since KM has been permitted to marry PW - well, just the fact that she was allowed to keep intimate company with him for so many years, tells me everything I personally need to know about the Windsors.

And, let's not forget about UG - and the *cough* "hard line" that was taken over that.

The fact that a harder line hasn't been taken neither shocks nor impresses me.  bored3

^ True, KF, but I think Andrew went "under the radar" because once William and Harry came along, Andrew became redundant, literally.

I hope the same fate doesn't await Prince Harry.  nervous Look at Andrew's life in latter years: it's been one decadent display to another, a total wastrel and playboy, who seems to have no identity.

Prince Andrew woes a distraction as wedding nears
http://www.deseretnews.com/article/700116035/Prince-Andrew-woes-a-distraction-as-wedding-nears.html?s_cid=rss-5
Quote
Less than two months before a fairytale wedding anticipated by much of the world, Britain's royal family finds itself fighting an inconvenient distraction: revelations that Prince Andrew, the queen's second son, is friends with a convicted sex offender, was photographed with a teenage prostitute, and has been accused of ties to Moammar Gadhafi's Libyan regime.

The Duke of York also hosted the son of the Tunisian dictator shortly before a popular uprising drove him from power — and the buildup of embarrassment has sparked calls that he be stripped of his role as special U.K. trade representative.


So this is being seen as a fairytale wedding just like his Mother and Father...Then Prince William and Kate will be divorced in the near future.  Look how His mothers "fairytales wedding turned out to be"

So Prince Andrews headlines are taking away from the wedding oh poo
