Prince Andrew stripped of military titles, duties in "unprecedented" move for Royal Family

  • Publicado el 12 ene 2022
  • The stripping of Prince Andrew of his military titles and Royal patronages was an unprecedented move by Queen Elizabeth II, ET Canada's royal commentator Jamie Samhan told Global News on Thursday, saying the Queen had her reputation to defend and had there was no other choice.

    Samhan said it was a huge move, especially since it's said Andrew is one of the Queen's favourite children, so for her to do this it would have taken a lot of discussion before the move was made.

    On Wednesday, Andrew's lawyers failed to persuade a U.S. judge to dismiss Virginia Giuffre's civil lawsuit against him.

    The following day, more than 150 veterans signed an open letter calling for the Queen to strip her son the prince of his military titles, which Buckingham Palace announced she had done just that. It also said he would not continue to undertake any public duties and would defend the case against him as a private citizen.

    He'll either be shut up before he can squeal or threatened into silence. Remember what the Florida prosecutor said about why he gave JE a sweetheart deal for unspeakable crimes against children in a state that gives 99 years for even a PHOTO: "I was told to leave it alone, that he's intelligence." Our system is the opposite of a meritocracy, it's a Kakistocracy (rule by the absolute worst people in a society).

    "Oh when will this all end?" asks the Queen.
    "When you die" says I.
    I predict that Charles just may be the last British Monarch. That institution was built on an illusion and, like magic, once all is revealed, the illusion disappears. It was a good run and established a few grand traditions. Unfortunately, most of them are simply no longer relevant to today's world. Charles is unlikely to hold things together as well as his mother did... that's not to blame him but her "time" was a different time. Andrew's shenanigans a century ago would never have seen the light of day. Today, they'll hang him (figuratively speaking).

    there's so much pain & betrayal in this travesty. the root of this wickedness is self hate, which turns outward toward hating others. here's a young girl that is telling the world of her brokeness, victimization, need to be honored, all of us want. here's a man, now treated as a pariah by the public & a leper by his family. a man with memories of living like a king only to have sold his soul to the devil. God said hate is the same as murder. is murder a more heinous crime than rape? because that's what everyone on this board is guilty of. hounding ur own victims every day, like harry and meg, with ur desires to break them mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. that's what 'you' have become. all murderers. u make clear your demands for punishment toward all those you hate, scorn & murder. What, pray tell, do you demand, if anything, in justifyinig the damages you do to countless souls you've destroyed over years and years?

    A widow that had been driven in a windowless van to an undisclosed place in order to give birth related this tale before she passed away:

    _Don’t worry lassie you will be treated royally._ The kindly prison matron reassured me. I was filled with terror at the thought of what might happen to me here. As soon as we arrived, I was ushered into a large room that was spotlessly clean with fine linen sheets in which 12 other women were also giving birth. The lady in the bed next to mine was drenched in perspiration, but the high level of humidity did not bother me.

    _Lilabet has given birth._ Someone whispered at the very same moment that my own baby barged his way into this world.

    When the nurse held up my baby so that I could see him he promptly reached out with his little fingers and squeezed her nipple.

    Exhausted from the trip and the ordeal of giving birth I instantly fell into a deep sleep. When I finally awakened and opened my eyes two nurses stood before me. Much to my surprise each held a baby, as if presenting a dual birth offering. Two newborns that were identical in every respect. It was impossible to tell them apart.

    The one that seemed reserved I took into my arms.

    _A mother knows that is her child._ The nurse’s remark struck me, as strangely disconcerting. By the time I reached out to hold my other baby the nurse had already vanished. From that moment onward I felt a quiet misgiving.

    _No, luv, you didn’t have twins._ A lady in the room stated, as if in reply to a question that hung in my mind that I never had an opportunity to ask.

    She reminisced on her colourful past. Her sons had violated both the parson’s and headmaster’s daughters before they had even reached their teens. But when her sons conquered the virgin daughter of the local MP, citizens were outraged. They were expelled from the parish and prohibited from ever again setting foot into the county.

    Her sons were the finest men that she had ever known. Two of her sons had been executed by hanging at Belmarsh. A third had been struck dead by a stray bullet from a rival gang on a bank job. She was fiercely proud of him, as only a mother could be. The law never caught up with him. Today, she had just returned from visiting her daughter at Dochas.

    A disquiet lingered within her that seemed destined never to vanish.

    The mother could not understand what motivated her Paddy. He was a stranger, so unlike her other children. Instead of stealing money he earned it, never cheated, returned a purse full of cash that he had found to its rightful owner, organized bottle drives in order to raise funds to help support a struggling orphanage, had never strayed and remained faithful to his wife. To his mother his behavior seemed rather peculiar, verging on the bizarre and certainly unbecoming of her circle of acquaintances. His demeanour was regal with a princely bearing. Her son always bowed in greeting and then paused, as if assuming that others were delighted to return the salutation. Where had she gone wrong in rearing her child that so distorted his ways? Her mind was filled with trepidation at what the future might lay in store for her Paddy.

    _[Paddy resides in a borough of London, a stalwart member of the community and instinctively devotes not a small part of his time towards furthering the greater good of humanity. His was the very epitome of probity, honesty and honourable conduct. Some acclaim him a future ambassador; others champion him a prospective peer of the House of Lords.]_

    Did Paddy against all odds overcome adversity in his life or did the nurse give the queen the wrong baby? Both the nurse and his mother assert that Paddy is her son. Should Prince Andrew submit to a DNA analysis in order to dispel suspicion that his claim to a royal bloodline is spurious?

      Who is demanding it? Paddy's behaviour is _learnt_ anyway, Un. Andrew learnt all that, too, but things still went awry. Royals, you see, are as susceptible to evil tendencies as anybody else. Was Henry VIII faithful to his wives? How many unwed mothers did he make at court? Quite a few! Did all his wives survive being married to him (answer, in case you don't know: NO)? Plenty of royals have been nasty bits of work, Un. There is nothing inherently "better" about a royal as against anybody from any other background. None of what has happened surprises me particularly, and it would only make thick people think that perhaps Andrew was not a Windsor.

      @Papillon Dogs I suppose the question is, if you're really fine in your knowledge of it, why do you care? It doesn't affect you. It's an internet comment, and you're being hostile and taking it personally. Maybe you should resolve your own issues before you start caring so much what other people are posting about their personal beliefs... and I'm not religious. I'm just trying to understand what's making you so upset, as their comment has literally no bearing or any meaningful affect on you without some underlying issue that's wholly your own. Because not being religious myself, I find it trivially easy to just... move on to the next comment. I also don't like to eat certain types of seafood, personally, but I don't get offended when people on the internet post about their love of seafood because... strangers leaving comments on the internet about things I don't like has no affect on my life.

      I hope you can appease my curiosity, because this is a fascinating behavior of people on the internet.

      His knowledge is irrespective of whether he did it or not. Given the previous trials, this would follow. She did go after others; started with Epstein-guilty; Then was Ghislaine Maxwell-guilty; now is Prince Andrew (see a pattern?). And the victim would be the one who was sex trafficked.

    Such a sad situation, he was lured into
    I don't think that the Prince knew she was 17 , if this is true. How I look at it, it's kind of like, he was given women or a woman to sleep with as a service, sought of speak, you know, serving a man.
    America is a jungle, and not for Royaltys that's for sure, a monarchy has rules to follow
    In Andrew's situation if this is True, he probably did not think, of what he was getting into, that it was wrong, because it was all entertainment and a service Especially, that there are more people well know people, in America being involved with the deceased JE
    JE was seen with all kinds of well-known high profile Americans aswel
    I can't speak for the 17 year old, I am more into how much this whole thing has ruined some good people's lives & how much they were used as a bait for JEs own pleasures and sex addictions aswel, they were used and caught up in it
    The only person I'd say is to blame here the most is JE Girlfriend, Ghislaine Mabelie I do believe that her sentence & conviction was fair, she used everyone
    She is responsible for those young women getting them into bed with men, that she arranged aswel.

    I'm wondering why a 17 year old young woman would keep returning to people she knew were behaving wrongly? She knew right from wrong. They didn't kidnap her and hold her captive. She had a choice to leave and not return. I'd like to hear a psychological explanation for this. I also want to know why she collected 500,000.00 to agree not to sue anyone related to her dealings with Epstein, then turned around and sued Prince Andrew. Doesn't this make that agreement null and void? Why or why not?

      She did leave, eventually. Epstein sent her to Thailand to take "massage" lessons and there, she met Mr. Giuffre and married him and went to live in his country (Australia), sending Epstein a message saying that she was not coming back. She also cut off all contact with him.

      I guess you never heard of rape/abuse/etc. victims who return to their abusers. It sounds like you're trying to blame the victim. The agreement was with Epstein, not Andrew.
      For the sake of explanation, let's pretend my wife and I sexually abuse you for a number of years. I pay you off with you agreeing not to charge me later. Well, for one, that agreement does not supersede the law. And it also does not prevent you for going after my wife.
      I can not speak for the young lady. Why she spoke up now doesn't negate what Andrew did. The simple fact that this lowlife hid behind the settlement is what you should be more concerned with

    How many months before Virginia's 18th birthday did this allegedly take place? I think this is all nonsense and feel sorry for Andrew. So the fact that a few months differentiate her ability to behave in that manner that makes her accountable for her actions is resulting in this woman bringing shame to the royal family. If she was over the age of 16 in the UK, this wouldn't have received the same outrage. So for these reasons, I think it's all a big farce.
