Prince Andrew steps down from public duties
If only he had an island to hang out at and lay low.

LONDON (Reuters) - Britain’s Prince Andrew said on Wednesday he was stepping down from public duties for the foreseeable future after being engulfed in a scandal involving Jeffrey Epstein.

Andrew, Queen Elizabeth’s second son, denies an allegation that he had sex with a 17-year-old girl procured for him by his friend Epstein, the financier who killed himself in a U.S. prison while awaiting trial on sex trafficking charges.

The scandal has escalated since Andrew’s rambling explanations in a disastrous TV interview aired on Saturday left many viewers incredulous, and his apparent lack of compassion for Epstein’s victims drew widespread condemnation.

In a statement issued by Buckingham Palace, Andrew said the scrutiny had become a “major disruption” to the work of the royal family and the charities associated with him.

“Of course, I am willing to help any appropriate law enforcement agency with their investigations, if required.” LINK

Should be in jail for having sexual intercourse with underage children.

Maybe Prince Andrew and Hunter Biden could combine their expertise and open their own company.

I know of an island they could use that will likely soon be on the market.

The confidence of a man who knows the only implicating evidence died with Epstein.

Is that what people care about

Or is it the human trafficking aspect?

Hunter Biden does speak English so that's a good start.

I think 17 is legal in Louisiana, so long as there is no other angle, like prostitution.

Edit: or trafficking

Age of consent is 16 in the UK.

The actual bad part of this story is the trafficking aspect of the girl being passed around but it seems like all the media highlights is she was under 18.. which doesn't matter in most places.

Technically, that may be true. I thought she was 14 at the time.

This is blatantly untrue.

I'm curious who is stepping in to fill the vacuum of what must have been an incredibly burdensome work load. It's not like pedophile princes just fall out of a tree.

The media wants to continue to push that narrative. If you keep saying it, most people will eventually think it’s true
