King Charles to Cut Funding for Prince Andrew over Latest Epstein Revelations

After the revelations exposed this week in the Jeffrey Epstein documents dumps, Britain’s King Charles III is responding by cutting taxpayer funding for his brother, Prince Andrew.

The Epstein docs revealed new allegations against Andrew, the Duke of York, and exposed the nature of his relationship with the pedophile to have been deeper than he claimed.

The latest tranche of papers claims the royal enjoyed daily massages and stayed in the “blue room” at Epstein’s Palm Beach lair.

Epsetin’s convicted sex trafficking accomplice Ghislaine Maxwell also claimed there was a Prince Andrew “puppet” at the pedophile’s New York property.

Victims have accused the royal of using it to grope a young woman.

The duke, who has consistently denied any wrongdoing, has also been accused of taking part in an “underage orgy.”

In a fresh blow to Andrew, Charles is now preparing to stop taxpayer money from being used to pay for Prince Andrew’s home security at Royal Lodge, it has been reported.

The Telegraph is reporting that he will have to fund the multi-million-pound security costs at Royal Lodge himself if he wants to stay in the 30-room mansion in Windsor Great Park.

The move will be seen as the monarch distancing himself publicly from his younger brother.

The news comes after the King had appeared to indicate that Andrew could be welcomed back into The Firm.

Less than two weeks ago, Andrew walked to church with the royal family on Christmas Day.

The UK’s Labour Party leader Sir Keir Starmer, the former director of public prosecutions, has now backed calls for Scotland Yard to launch an investigation into the claims made about Andrew.

New revelations from the unredacted legal papers show how Epstein’s former housekeeper claimed Andrew had daily massages.

The massages occurred when Andrew allegedly spent “weeks” at the pedophile financier’s Florida home.

Juan Alessi, who worked at Epstein’s Palm Beach residence, said both Andrew and his ex-wife Sarah, Duchess of York, were friends with Epstein and Maxwell.

It comes after a source told the Mirror that Charles has told his brother he “won’t be abandoned.”

“Charles promised his late mother he would not abandon Andrew once she was gone and that remains the situation unless, of course, he finds himself engaged in a criminal matter,” they said.

However, previous allegations that Andrew raped Epstein victim Virginia Robert Giuffre three times when she was 17, including during an “underage orgy,” resurfaced in newly-published court documents.

He strenuously denies the claims, saying he never met her.

Nevertheless, he paid millions to Giuffre in 2022 to settle a civil case out of court.

The Metropolitan Police said no new investigation has been launched.

Yet, Starmer said where “credible” accusations are made they should be investigated.

Sir Keir said: “I think wherever there’s a complaint made it’s inevitable that it should be looked at.‌

“I mean, we have to start with the victims here and look at what allegations have been made.

“I’ve seen the headlines on this, not the detail… but frankly whoever it is, where there are allegations, credible allegations made, then of course they should be looked at.”

Republic – the anti-monarchist group – reported the duke to Scotland Yard and is calling for the accusations to be properly investigated in the UK.

During his videotaped interview under oath in 2009, Alessi was questioned on Andrew’s relationship with Maxwell and Epstein.

Lawyer Katherine Ezell asked whether Andrew and Sarah ever had massages at the Florida home.

Alessi replied: “Prince Andrew did.

“I think Sarah was there only once and for a short time.

“I don’t think she slept in there. I cannot remember.

“I think she was visiting Wellington and she came to the house and we met her.

“But Prince Andrew, yes, Prince Andrew spent weeks with us.”

Ezell then asked: “Where would he sleep?”

Alessi said: “In the main room, the main guest bedroom. That was the blue room.”

The lawyer then said: “And, so, when he would come and stay, during that time would he frequently have massages?

Alessi replied: “I would say, daily massages.”

In a further interview under oath by an Epstein employee, who is labeled only as “the witness” in the documents, they claimed Maxwell took the pedophile financier to England “to introduce him to royalty.”

The staff member said there were “many pictures” of the duke with Epstein in the property they worked at.

In a resurfaced videotaped interview with Maxwell, the disgraced socialite said she did not know how Epstein met the duke and she insisted she did not introduce them.

Maxwell admitted, however, that there was a Duke of York puppet in Epstein’s New York apartment.

Andrew was accused by Johanna Sjoberg of groping her breast while posing with the puppet of himself in Epstein’s Manhattan home in 2001.

Maxwell said she did not recollect putting the hand of the caricature on Sjoberg’s breast.

“There was a puppet – not a puppet – there was a – I don’t know how would you describe it really… a caricature of Prince Andrew that was in Jeffrey’s home,” she said.

Maxwell has been imprisoned since July 2020, despite attempts by her defense counsel to have her released on bail.

She was sentenced to 20 years in prison at the federal court in the Southern District of New York in June 2022.
