Awkward moment: the unexpected question that took Prince Charles by surprise
The Prince Charles had an awkward moment on Thursday when he was asked about his brother, Andrew of York, on who weighs a complaint for sexual abuse committed during his years of friendship with the late tycoon and pederast Jeffrey Epstein.
“¿Can I ask your opinion about your brother’s situation??, asked a journalist from Sky News. It was after the heir to the British throne met in the north of Scotland with populations that in December were affected by the Arwen storm.
Carlos, 73, was indifferent to the question, according to a video record that the news network shared through social networks and declined to comment on the matter that caused a real commotion in Buckingham Palace.
Prince Andrew, 61, recently received a setback in the United States justice, which gave green light for the prince to face a civil suit for sexual assault.
Virginia Giuffre, one of the alleged victims of sexual trafficking of minors of the late Epstein, a friend of the Duke of York, filed the complaint last summer in which he assured that the prince sexually abused her when she was a minor, something that Andrés has flatly denied .
according to demand, the incident occurred at the London home of Ghislaine Maxwell, ex-partner and collaborator of Epstein, and also in the businessman’s properties in Manhattan and Little St. James, in the United States Virgin Islands.
After the progress of the case in the American Justice, Isabel II received the request of 150 military veterans to strip Andrés of his military duties in view of the scandal, a request to which he formally agreed on Wednesday.
“The Duke of York will continue to hold no public office and will defend himself in this case as a private citizen”, the palace specified in a brief statement.
