Say there was someone who knew what was going on, and who could no longer be watched over? The Royal inner circle is not one that is entered, or left for that matter, very easily. The case of Harry and Meghan at the moment is taking so much attention as this is something that just does not really happen. The last time it did was Princess Diana…
It is not as if any evidence of fowl play was absent. An unofficial statement came at the time from the two young princes. Tearfully, the newly motherless William and Harry claimed it was the press that brought Diana to her end. Not only metaphorically with the relentless bombardment of photographers that Diana constantly endured, but more directly pointing to the press motorbikes that hounded the car moments before it swerved off the road and crashed. Still now the wounds show on the princes, in particular Harry as he currently fights against the attention of the press, saying only a few months ago that ‘I will not be bullied into playing a game that killed my Mum’.
The media would be the perfect cover – an easy alibi for such blatant harassment. A media notably controlled in large at the time by Robert Maxwell, friend to Prince Andrew, and father of the girlfriend and accomplice to Epstein, Ghislaine Maxwell. Robert himself was found dead a few years after, having “fallen” overboard from his yacht and drowned. Mysterious deaths seem to be ripe in such friend groups.
Whilst this may now only be spinning threads, there is a very intricate web connecting all of these people. Epstein was not only boasting when he talks of all the people he knew, his reach appears to spread to every corner and crevice of the elite world. It is a world that appears to protect its own turning a blind eye to dark acts occurring and all feeling safe in the knowledge that to expose one would be to expose everything, and no one wants that. What other unsavoury individuals the House of Windsor may be fraternising with is left open for discussion.
The whole ordeal has again shown, amongst other things, that not even the sanctity of the Crown can avoid tarnish. While it is unlikely that the Royal family will soon be exposed as a group of extraterrestrial lizards, we may find out that they might not be much better.
