According to royal biographer Tina Brown, even though convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein referred to Prince Andrew as an idiot behind his back, he was delighted to profit from the Duke’s position. Epstein was arrested in 2019 on allegations of sex trafficking and committed suicide in jail a month later.
In her upcoming book The Palace Papers, Tina Brown, the editor-in-chief of Vanity Fair in the 1990s before moving on to manage the Daily Beast until 2013, claims that Epstein boasted of leveraging Prince Andrew’s contacts to broker his deals with shady people. In exchange, describes Brown, Epstein made the ‘oversexed’ Andrew feel like a superstar. Epstein manipulated Prince Andrew, who was resentful of playing second fiddle to Prince Charles and was reliant on his Queen mommy for financial support.
Epstein, she alleged, would fly Andrew to ‘obscure foreign markets’ where governments couldn’t refuse to see him because he was a royal and would accompany him as an investment consultant to His Royal Highness. He would then negotiate deals for his own benefit.
Brown compared Andrew to a sex-obsessed adolescent. A source informed her that in 1993 the Prince offended the wife of US Ambassador to the UK, Walter Annenberg, when he spent two days viewing porn on cable when visiting them at their luxury estate in California.
According to a new book, Prince Andrew was a sex addict with an “obsession” for redheads supplied by Jeffrey Epstein. Author Ian Halperin, who published “Controversy: Sex, Lies, and Dirty Money by the World’s Powerful Elite,” disclosed confidential information about the British monarch.
Dozens of women have come forward or have testified that while they were minors, Epstein sexually attacked them with the aid of convicted sex trafficker Ghislaine Maxwell. Virginia Roberts Giuffre, who accused Prince Andrew of sexual assault, has negotiated an out-of-court settlement with Prince Andrew. Andrew will contribute money to Giuffre’s foundation that helps sexual assault victims, according to court records filed.
The settlement and gift amounts were not disclosed.
