Oh, that and whipping up the usual "York Haters", and very successfully too.

And all the Andrew groupies came out too. Oh naughty people saying Andy did anything wrong let's blame the park worker.

Oh I don't think people can be condemned as "Groupies" merely for doubting the veracity of the source of a story.

Oh it's more than that isn't it. Andy can do no wrong ever for some.

Prince Andrew enjoys a late-night dinner with a glamorous blonde at a restaurant near Buckingham Palace (but he drove himself home)
Prince Andrew, 56, met a woman at trendy Japanese restaurant Kouzu
The pair entered separately and the woman left five minutes after the prince
Royal bit his nails as he left the meeting and appeared nervous

So, more disclosures about Andrew's dealings. I really can't say I'm at all surprised. What a source of great pride he is to the British Royal Family!

It'll be very interesting to see how this latest story plays out over the next few days. There seems to be actual evidence, not rumour and supposition.

His mother puts up with him because she is his mother and he is her favorite but Charles will not be so indulgent I suspect. Unless Andrew wants to find himself With no position, no responsibility and no backing from the monarch he really really needs to lay low and comport himself.

Tristan de Cunha is the most Remote inhabited archipelago( pop. 270) in then world... Thousands miles in either direction of the nearest lands and happens to be British Territory. Andrew might end up thereb LOL.

Prince Andrew’s continuing close relationship with questionably figures in Kazakhstan brings the royal family into disrepute
Andrew's stupidity is damaging to the monarchy's reputation and the republicans will again be rubbing their hands in glee because of him. But we must remember that this comes from the Daily Fail and everything that comes from them must be taken with a large pinch of salt.

The Queen loves all her children, and (as you wrote) she puts up with him because she is his mother, but also because she's a kind, caring, forgiving and non judgmental lady.

And I actually think that Charles will do the same because he is his brother, but also because he is a kind and caring man.

But if Andrew is found guilty of anything illegal, then the Queen and Charles (if it happens in his reign) have to do something. And that would have been a nightmare for our beloved Queen.

She has a lot of experience after her children many scandals, but she's 90 and it could have affected her health. So I really hope that doesn't happen.

Perhaps this should be discussed in this thread:

That reminds me of when The Duke of Windsor was the Governor of the Bahamas from 1940-1945. It would be funny to see Andrew stationed overseas, if the scandals continue to pile up. The royal version of a penalty box. I wonder which would be the most likely outpost...

That being said The Daily Fail can't be trusted, which is why I avoid clicking on them, so I'll wait until a more accurate source substantiates the allegations.

He might be made to care though, if any of the broadsheet newspapers (as distinct from the DM) go on a crusade about his alleged activities. What a great assignment for an investigative journalist that would be!
