US News 'Lock them all up and throw away the key': Virginia Roberts says Ghislaine Maxwell must be arrested and Prince Andrew belongs in jail as she accuses authorities of a cover up
The Queen Gave Cover to Soviet Spy Anthony Blunt at Buckingham Palace. ‘The Crown’ Will Tell Their Story.
You would think that the last place to look for a Soviet spy would be Buckingham Palace. But that’s exactly where he was. He had been there since 1945, appointed by Queen Elizabeth’s father, George VI, who was unaware of his double life. But that’s exactly where he was.
Virginia Roberts has said Ghislaine Maxwell should be arrested and that Prince Andrew belongs in jail - as she accuses the authorities of a cover up.
Ms Roberts, an alleged trafficking victim of paedophile Jeffrey Epstein, claims she had sex with the duke three times when she was 17, which he strenuously denies.
She alleges that after dancing with Andrew at Tramp nightclub, they later had sex at mews house in Belgravia, owned by the duke's friend Ghislaine Maxwell, on March 10, 2001.
Prince Andrew's regret over TV interview: Duke of York tells friends he wishes he'd expressed his 'great sympathy' for paedophile Jeffrey Epstein's victims in his disastrous BBC grilling
The Duke of York insisted he had 'great sympathy' for anyone abused by his late paedophile friend, and had been in the dark about the 'extent of his wrongdoing'.The Duke of York insisted he had ‘great sympathy’ for anyone abused by his late paedophile friend, and had been in the dark about the ‘extent of his wrongdoing’.
In a number of posts on her Twitter account today Ms Roberts agreed with other social media users suggesting the duo should face consequences from law enforcement.
In response to a post suggesting Prince Andrew should go to prison, she said: 'Well said - keep putting pressure on the authorities to hold each and everyone who participated, enabled or knew & did nothing accountable.
'No more charades, or games-time to start locking all the predators up!!!
'They put us in chains not it's their turn!'
In another post that suggested Ghislaine Maxwell be arrested, she said: 'Amen to that!!!'
She also blasts claims the photo of her with Andrew's arm around her lower back isn't doctored or fake.
So how DOES he pay for it all? The sums just don't add up on Prince Andrew's millionaire lifestyle (funded by his Navy pension and civil list income)... until you meet his oligarch chums
GUY ADAMS: Despite his ski chalet in Verbier (bottom left) and estate on the edge of Windsor Great Park (top left), in the early 2000s Prince Andrew wasn't very cash-rich. Enter Jeffrey EpsteinPrince Andrew’s long journey from dashing young Falklands War hero to the pasty-faced, 59-year-old Royal pariah who bumbled through Saturday’s extraordinary TV interview hinges on a simple question: what on Earth first attracted him to the billionaire paedophile Jeffrey Epstein?
In the picture of Ms Roberts - now known as Mrs Guiffre - shows Andrew with his arm around her waist at Ghislaine Maxwell's house, who can be seen in the background of the image.
Ms Roberts said: 'It does have a date stamp - on the back. There are so many ways I could poke holes in their 'doctored photo' but I don't need to.
'I know it's real, the FBI know its real, journos who've seen it know its real. Can't wait to hear their next excuse.'
It comes just a week after Prince Andrew's misguided attempt to repair his reputation and clarify his relationship with Epstein he was interviewed by the BBC's Emily Maitlis on Newsnight.
It went so badly the Queen was forced to step in and effectively fire him from public duties and the duke stepped back from all of his 230 patronages.
'I don't recall him staying with me': Britain's ex-consul general in New York casts doubt on Prince Andrew's claim he stayed with him not Epstein on fateful 'sex allegation' trip - in evidence presented to Palace just hours before duke stepped down
One of the most respected British diplomats of his generation, Sir Thomas Harris, tells the Mail that he has 'no recollection' of the prince staying at his official residence during the 2001 trip.When you’re accused of having sex with a teenager trafficked to the home of a billionaire paedophile with whom you spend extended periods, it pays to have a rock-solid alibi.
Now Buckingham Palace is bracing itself for yet further scrutiny as Ms Roberts is being interviewed on BBC Panorama this week. It will be broadcast on Monday next week.
Yesterday the Duchess of York's friends suggested Ms Roberts should face a TV 'grilling' similar to the one faced by Andrew.
A friend told The Telegraph: 'She [Virginia Roberts] should be properly cross examined and on all the evidence that doesn't stack up.
'She should be put on the rack. The BBC cannot drill him as they did, and just believe her, when there are lots of inconsistencies.'
In particular the friend of the duchess said the BBC should ask Virginia Roberts - now Mrs Giuffre - how much she had been paid for the photograph showing the Duke with his arm around her at the home of Ghislaine Maxwell.
The intervention may not prove welcome due to the demand to put Ms Roberts - an alleged victim of a paedophile and sex offender - under an intense media grilling.
Another annus horribilis? The Queen's difficult year
It's been a bad year for the monarchy. The Queen may even look back on 2019 as another "annus horribilis", with the fallout from Prince Andrew's association to Jeffrey Epstein continuing to gather pace.The Queen first used the Latin phrase - which means "terrible year" - in reference to the travesties the Royal Family endured in 1992.
The Duke of York's former wife Sarah Ferguson and daughter Princess Beatrice were among the key figures pressing him to go ahead with last weekend's car crash interview, it has been claimed.
The Duchess of York had been keen to end the speculation about Andrew's involvement with convicted paedophile and sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein ahead of Beatrice's wedding to property developer Edo Mapelli Mozzi next year.
Fergie is also believed to have been convinced that if the public could see the Duke – or 'my boy', as she is said to call him – talking in his own words about the scandal, they would be convinced that he was telling the truth.
Andrew's performance and its aftermath seem to have hit the Princess hard and she was tearful while hosting a party for her fiance's 36th birthday at the exclusive Mayfair nightclub Annabel's on Tuesday night.
One member of the Princess's circle said that what should have been a celebration was a solemn and awkward affair. Prince Andrew stepped down from Royal duties the following day.
'Beatrice was sombre and make-up-free for the birthday dinner,' the source said.
'She was probably worried that her mascara would run. She seemed quite tearful at times. In fact, Beatrice has been in tears every day since the interview went out.'
Does the Duke STILL not get it? Royal Family step in AGAIN and force Prince Andrew to cancel junket to Bahrain he was about to jet off on a day after 'stepping back' from public duties
Prince Andrew was set to fly to Bahrain to speak as the guest of honour at his beloved Pitch@Palace, but it emerged he won't be making the trip as the backlash continues of his friendship with Epstein.Video: Prince Andrew steps back from Royal duties (Time)
Princess Beatrice is due to marry her partner Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi next year but royal biographer Christopher Warwick said the scandal would probably mean her wedding will be a much smaller affair than that afforded to her sister.
Mr Warwick said: 'I think - fairly or unfairly - it has cast a shadow over the York family but more broadly his stepping back from official duties has kind of lifted that shadow that was about to be cast over the whole royal family.'
During the BBC interview, Andrew denied claims he had sex with a 17-year-old girl, Virginia Roberts, but admitted he had 'let the side down' when he visited Epstein's home in New York – two years after the billionaire financier's conviction for soliciting a minor for prostitution.
The duke was also attacked for what was seen by many as a lack of remorse over the friendship with the disgraced financier, who took his own life in prison earlier this year while awaiting trial on sex trafficking and conspiracy charges.
