It is no secret to anyone that the Scandal of Prince Andrew, is splashing Buckingham Palace and very directly to Queen Elizabeth this, after having made the decision to pay out of her own pocket for her son’s lawyers. Faced with this move by the monarch, criticism has begun to damage her image.
For Royal Correspondent Katie Nicholl, the Queen’s decision to pay for the Duke of York’s legal defence “is damaging her image”.
“The queen is giving him shelter. She is letting him stay in Balmoral and is allowing him to take refuge under her skirt. And I think that’s detrimental to their image, especially in the United States,” he said.
According to the aforementioned expert, the Duke of York would not have enough money to be able to pay his own lawyers.
Prince Andrew’s defense expanded after he hired attorney Melissa Lerner, who joined Andrew Brettler. For many this move will make the bill in millions of pounds, which according to the ‘Telegraph’, queen Elizabeth II will pay.
The Duke of York has until October 29 to respond to the complaint of Virginia Giuffre, who says she was forced to have sex with him when he was 17 years old in the London home of Jeffrey Epstein’s partner, in addition to abusing her on two more occasions.
