Ghislaine Maxwell’s guilty verdict is the final nail in the coffin for Prince Andrew
This is a comment piece by Ingrid Seward
PRINCE Andrew has been weighed in the court of public opinion and found wanting.
The verdict against Ghislaine Maxwell was enough to see to that.
He’s now perceived as a one-time close friend with not only a convicted paedophile, but also a convicted sex trafficker.
I think the public were shocked by the explicit revelations of the girls who gave evidence against Maxwell during the trial.
They were also shocked to see the photographs taken by Andrew on his mother’s private property — especially the one of Maxwell and Jeffrey Epstein relaxing at her log cabin on the Balmoral estate.
It shows an extraordinary lack of sense and judgment and is one of the reasons it’s so damaging to the Royal Family.
It’s arguably the final nail in the so-called coffin for Andrew.
And it’s quite sad because there are two faces to Andrew.
There’s the arrogant, royal face and then there is the loyal, kind face.
And he’s not an unkind person. His stupidity just knows no bounds.
It’s almost linked to the arrogance of the old-fashioned aristocracy who thought they were above the law.
