Do you really want an answer to that?You're the child of the Monarch, you've spent your life entirely in the public eye. You understand from painful experience that the media would LOVE to crush you completely.
Would you really be so stupid as to do what he's alleged to have done?
A woman has alleged that she was repeatedly forced to have sexual relations with Prince Andrew as part of a lawsuit that claims an American investment banker passed her around rich and powerful friends as a “sex slave” while she was still underage.
The accusation was made in a lawsuit brought by women who say they were exploited by Jeffrey Epstein, an American multi-millionaire who was convicted of soliciting sex with an underage girl in 2008, reports the Guardian.
The Duke is also on good terms with Timur Kulibayev, whose father-in-law is President of Kazakhstan and who paid a generous £15m – £3m more than the guide price – for Sunninghill Park, the Duke and Duchess of York's former marital home. And Abu Dhabi's rulers think so highly of him that last year they gave him free use of a four-bedroom town house, said to be worth £1m.
But the revelation that provoked calls for his resignation last March was his continued friendship with an American financier, Jeffrey Epstein, who was sentenced to 18 months in prison in Florida for soliciting prostitution. The billionaire hedge fund manager was reported to have had sexual contact with a large number of teenage girls, many of whom have civil cases against him.
The Duke has known Epstein for years. In 1999, he invited the financier and his girlfriend Ghislaine Maxwell, daughter of the disgraced media mogul Robert Maxwell, to Balmoral. He also met Victoria Roberts, whom Epstein hired as a "travelling masseuse" when she was 15 years old. There is no evidence that the Duke knew Epstein was an alleged child molester before the offences came to light, but he certainly should have known by last December, when he flew to New York to spend four days as Epstein's guest. His office also knew that last year Epstein paid £15,000 to Johnny O'Sullivan, the former personal assistant to the Prince's former wife, Sarah Ferguson, to help the Duchess sort out of her mounting debts.
Just the way the American legal system works. There may well be some truth in the lawsuit as it stands and the bloke the suit is aimed at has done time for the offences. Chuck in a couple of high profile names for effect.
My bold on both articles
DOY would be absolutely bonkers to have become involved in this and no doubt the press are going to milk this for all it is worth....
The press convicted Jimmy Saville after all didn't they.
Does not 'minor' in the US usually mean under-21?
It shows the danger of prominent people associating with dodgy ones in any way.
You're going to have to explain that one as it reads like US citizens aren't allowed sex with non americans?16-18 depending on the State, but the US has PROTECT Act 2003, which forbids citizens from sexual acts with either US nationals or foreigners both within the US and in foreign countries.
