Speaking of royal documentaries!

Let’s give equal coverage to the documentary about Prince Andrew as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s. Tonight on Channel 4 in the UK, there will be a documentary about Prince Andrew’s friendship with dead rapist pedophile Jeffrey Epstein. According to “court papers filed by Epstein accuser Virginia Giuffre in 2015”, the Queen’s second son allegedly participated in an orgy with Jeffrey Epstein and nine other women on Epstein’s private Caribbean island. 

Virginia Roberts Giuffre is the woman pictured with Andrew in that now-infamous photo where his arm is around her waist, with alleged madam Ghislaine Maxwell standing nearby. Buckingham Palace and Prince Andrew have denied many times that he’s done anything wrong, that he knew nothing of Epstein’s crimes. They’ve insisted that Virginia is not telling the truth. A judge deemed her account “immaterial and impertinent” in 2015. Since then, however, a lot of new information has come out about the handling of the Epstein case, which is why she’s using her voice now, along with other victims, to find out how Epstein was protected for so long and expose the people who enabled him. 

Her claims about the orgy, and more, evidently, will be broadcast in England tonight. Will it be front page news tomorrow? 

In other Prince Andrew news, a private investigator who was hired by Epstein’s victims told the Sunday Times this weekend that Epstein had 13 different phone numbers for Andrew. Per Page Six:

“Gumshoe Mike Fisten, who dogged the late sex perv for a decade on behalf of victims, found an address book of Epstein’s at his Palm Beach mansion — and it was “a treasure trove of Jeffrey’s activities,” he told the Sunday Times of London Saturday.

“It really took us out of south Florida and took us around the globe,” he said.

“For instance, if looking at the section in London, you could pick out the Duke of York, which is Prince Andrew. And … it shows Buckingham Palace,” he said. “He has 13 phone numbers to contact the duke.”

Andrew, as we know, has tried to downplay his relationship with Epstein. That certainly sounds casual, no? If the pedophile sex trafficker has 13 different numbers for you to reach you wherever you are, I mean, sure, they weren’t close at all. 

But, you know, there haven’t been nearly the same amount of headlines about this than you would expect. Nobody seems as scandalised by this as they are about Meghan’s nail polish or baby shower.
