Biographer A. N. WILSON writes that for first time in generations, the Queen lacks a wise

A. N. WILSON: Some of the Royal Family’s calamities in 2019 can be put down to bad luck; others to poor judgment. But at least one, however, is of such seriousness that, if it continues, I believe it could threaten the monarchy itself. I mean, of course, the Duke of York’s association with the sex criminal and paedophile Jeffrey Epstein, who committed suicide in a New York jail in the summer. The damage done to ‘the Firm’ by the Duke’s disastrous interview on the BBC with Emily Maitlis cannot be underestimated.

Grace Millane was a member of BDSM dating sites, jury hears

Grace Millane belonged to BDSM dating sites and asked a former partner to choke her in bed, a jury heard today. A statement from Grace's ex-boyfriend given to police revealed he and the 22-year-old university graduate from Essex used a system of safe words and signals to make sure she was never in danger during the BDSM sessions. The statement was read to the jury on Monday at the trial of a 27-year-old New Zealand man accused of strangling Grace to death at the end of a Tinder date. The defendant, who also cannot be named for legal reasons, claims Grace died accidentally during consensual sex at his apartment in Auckland last December, and insists she asked him to put his hands on her neck during intercourse. The trial also heard statements today from police that they had traced messages sent from Grace on two BDSM dating sites, called Whiplr and FetLife (inset).

New Jeffrey Epstein accuser who was 'assaulted by his female associate' says the financier used Prince Andrew as BAIT to get her to his private island when she was 15 - as she urges Duke to speak to the FBI

A woman who claims she was trafficked and abused by Jeffrey Epstein when she was 15 years old has launched legal proceedings against the wealthy paedophile’s estate. The women, who is named in court documents only as Jane Doe, alleges Epstein tried to lure her to his estate in the U.S. Virgin Islands by telling her Prince Andrew would be there. The victim says she was just 15 when a female associate of Epstein began grooming her for sex with Epstein by gifting her an iPod. The associate then sexually assaulted her before passing her off to the millionaire, it was reported. Though the duke has been accused of having sex with Epstein accuser Virginia Roberts at Epstein's island estate, there is no evidence that Prince Andrew would have been there when Jane Doe 15 was invited. The lawsuit is against Darren Indyke and Richard Kahn, the executors of Epstein's estate for undisclosed monetary damages.
