Prince Andrew news – Queen's son 'should be quaking in his boots in case convicted Ghislaine Maxwell names names'

GHISLAINE Maxwell’s conviction should leave Prince Andrew “quaking in his boots” a lawyer of Jefferey Epstein's victims has said.

Maxwell was convicted of sex trafficking and grooming girls – meaning she faces the rest of her life behind bars – with a potential sentence of 65 years.

Maxwell and Andrew are believed to have known each other for the better part of two decades and she is alleged to have introduced him to Jeffrey Epstein.

Los Angeles attorney Lisa Bloom told DailyMail.com, "He should be quaking in his boots, because this shows that a jury is willing to come back with a guilty verdict even if the accusers are not perfect, as no human being is.

"I think he should be very concerned," she said.

    Harry and William's titles

    As well as his obvious title of Prince, Harry became the Duke of Sussex when he and Meghan married.

    And as Meghan holds the female titles for Scotland and Northern Ireland, he is the holder of the male counterparts making him the Earl of Dumbarton and Baron Kilkeel.

    Like his brother, William was born a Prince but inherited the title of Duke of Cambridge when he married Kate Middleton in April 2011.

    And as with Harry, William’s title also differs to Earl of Strathearn when in Scotland and Baron Carrickfergus in Northern Ireland.

    Meghan's titles

    While she has officially stepped down from royal duties Meghan has managed to cling on to several titles.

    The Queen bestowed her with the honour of the Duchess of Sussex after she married her grandson, Prince Harry in May 2018.

    And with Harry as her husband she automatically inherited the female counterparts of his own titles including  the Scottish title Countess of Dumbarton as well as the Northern Irish style Baroness Kilkeel.

    Harry is ‘restless’ claims Diana’s astrologer

    Debbie Frank, who was also a close confidante of Harry’s late mother, claims that it will take the Duke of Sussex “years to let go of his old life.”

    Speaking to Hello! Debbie analysed Virgo Harry’s upcoming year, revealing that his star sign is typically restless and prone to anxiety.

    She explained: “Harry is still going through a major internal process over a number of years which involves a lot of soul-searching and letting go of his old life.

    “It's a sensitive time for him as a Virgo with a mind that races and is prone to anxiety.”

    Commenting on the upcoming Queen's Platinum Jubilee celebrations in June, she commented that Harry was likely to feel “awkward and out of step.”

    The Duke reportedly wants to be included in next year’s four-day bonanza for the Queen, with plans being released by Buckingham Palace in June.

    The Palace confirmed that Brits will be given a four-day Bank Holiday weekend so they can celebrate the Queen’s 70th year on the throne next June.

    Virginia Roberts says ‘others must be held accountable’

    Virginia Roberts Giuffre says "others must be held accountable" after Ghislaine Maxwell was found guilty of sex trafficking.

    Ms Roberts reacted after the trial in New York where Maxwell was found guilty on five of six counts of grooming girls for Jeffrey Epstein’s paedophile ring.

    The 38-year-old, who is staying with family in Australia, tweeted: “My soul yearned for justice for years and today the jury gave me just that.

    “I will remember this day always.

    “Having lived with the horrors of Maxwell’s abuse, my heart goes out to the many other girls and young women who suffered at her hands and whose lives she destroyed.

    “I hope that today is not the end but rather another step in justice being served. Maxwell did not act alone. Others must be held accountable. I have faith that they will be.”

    Ms Roberts claims the Prince abused her on multiple occasions in 2001 – something the royal strongly denies.

    Maxwell was able to “just breeze into the Palace"

    Former royal protection officer Paul Page has now told Vanity Fair during that time Maxwell was able to “just breeze into the Palace like she was one of the royal family”.

    The Duke of York was first spotted with her and Epstein at a tennis tournament at Donald Trump's resort Mar-a-Lago in February 2000.

    It was reported the duo were together at least eight times in the year 2000 – and were seen a various nightspots in London.

    Andrew, Epstein, and Maxwell – along with Donald and his then girlfriend Melania – were pictured together in one striking image at Mar-a-Lago in December 2000.

    And during this period, Epstein and Ghislaine are said to have introduced the royal to the then 17-year-old Virginia Roberts.

    ‘Could be bad news’ for Prince Andrew (Continued…)

    GHISLAINE Maxwell and the multi-millionaire paedophile Jeffery Epstein are believed to have been dating at the time – and the Duke is believed to have subsequently struck up a friendship with Epstein.

    That friendship has come under intense scrutiny and one of the multi-millionaire’s sex slaves is currently suing the royal.

    He has strenuously denied any wrongdoing and strongly refuted the allegations made in the lawsuit.

    A legal source connected with Maxwell's case told The Mail on Sunday a guilty verdict in the case could spell trouble for the royal.

    “This could be bad news for Prince Andrew and other high-profile men who hung out with Ghislaine and Jeffrey Epstein," the source said.

    “It is possible she will begin to co-operate and tell what she knows in an attempt to lessen her jail term."

    Geo.Tv has reported that: “There are some [experts] who still cling to the hope that Harry won't disgrace his grandmother [in his upcoming book].

    Royal author Phil Dampier previously told Fabulous: “Lady Louise is definitely a favourite of the Queen and I can see her having an important role in the Royal Family in the future.

    “Her Majesty sees a lot of Edward and Sophie and their children at Windsor Castle as they live nearby at Bagshot Park.

    “The Queen is very close to her mother Sophie and of course there has always been a bond between them because Sophie nearly died giving birth and Louise has had her eye condition to cope with.

    “But she has grown into a lovely and intelligent young woman and the Queen adores her.”

    Inside Queen’s afternoons with Prince Edward & Sophie’s children

    The Countess of Wessex, 56, and her husband Prince Edward, 57, live just 11 miles from Her Majesty's residence at Windsor Castle, making it easy for them to have tea with the monarch "on a regular basis".

    The proud parents, whose children Lady Louise, 18, and James, Viscount Severn, 14, live with them in Bagshot Park, Surrey, are understood to have spent Christmas Day with the Queen on Saturday.

    And according to Sophie Wessex, the family is particularly "fortunate" to live so close to the monarch.

    She told Royals Monthly: "We're a lot more fortunate because we live so close to the Queen, so when she spends a lot of time at Windsor on the weekends, our children are more fortunate because they can go over and have tea with her on a regular basis."

    An expert has reported that The Queen will be “having words” with Prince William over his use of helicopters.

    According to the Daily Mail’s Richard Eden, the Queen will be talking to William about his use of helicopters when he and the rest of the Cambridges visit her at Windsor Castle over the Christmas period.

    He adds that the monarch is concerned about using helicopters after a crash killed Air Commodore John Blount and three crew lost their lives with an inquest blaming metal fatigue in the gearbox for the crash. No royals were on board.

    A source told the newspaper: “It put her off completely. That’s why she’s so worried about William and his family.”

    Crossbow laws could be tightened

    The Home Secretary has ordered a review of crossbow laws after an armed intruder scaled Windsor Castle and threatened to kill the Queen on Christmas Day.

    Priti Patel could tighten rules that allow adults to buy the "lethal" weapon without any identification or background checks.

    The teenager had allegedly scaled a fence at Windsor Castle – where Her Majesty was due to celebrate Christmas with her family.

    He was 500 metres from the Queen’s private apartments, inside the castle grounds.

    Princess Charlotte is the spitting image of her great-grandmother

    THE resemblance between the Queen and her great-granddaughter Princess Charlotte is uncanny.

    As Royal enthusiasts can't help but notice the striking similarities between the pair as they compare pictures of them at the same ages.

    Both royal ladies have the same facial features from nose, eyes, mouth to a similar dark hair colour.

    One person wrote on Twitter:"I've always said I see so much of Her Majesty, The Queen, in little Princess Charlotte. She’s got the Queen’s eyes!"

    Another wrote: "She really is a Windsor! Such a gorgeous girl!', while a third added: "I’ve always thought Princess Charlotte was a mix of the Queen and Prince William."

    Recap: Harry & Meghan's bombshell interview

    In what some have dubbed the TV event of 2021, Meghan and Harry gave an exclusive, tell-all interview to Oprah Winfrey.

    The couple sparked royal uproar after accusing an unnamed senior member of the Firm of racism and suggesting other family members were jealous of Meghan.

    They also told Kate was the one who had made Meghan cry during a row over bridesmaid dresses, and Harry felt "trapped within the system" like his brother and dad.

    Their other bombshell claims included being cut off financially after Megxit and how the Duchess of Sussex had contemplated suicide while pregnant.

    'Financial remedies' for Meghan Markle

    A Sunday newspaper has agreed "financial remedies" with the Duchess of Sussex after a court ruled that it had breached her privacy by publishing extracts from a letter to her father.

    The move ends a dispute between the duchess and The Mail on Sunday dating back nearly four years and means that the case will not be heard by the country's most senior judges at the Supreme Court.

    The Mail on Sunday published a note on page one directing readers to a short story on page three of Sunday's newspaper, which reported that a financial settlement had been agreed with Meghan.

    The newspaper referred to High Court rulings in January and May, in which a judge found that in addition to breaching the duchess's privacy The Mail on Sunday had infringed her copyright by publishing the letter, which was written to Thomas Markle in 2018.

    Whoopi Goldberg shuts down TV host's Meghan Markle rant

    Meghan McCain said during a chat on The View: "Monarchies are stupid, the American experiment is the way to go.

    "And if we have two American women, Meghan Markle and Oprah Winfrey, who have single-handedly finished what George Washington and our revolutionary counterparts did, I’m all for it."

    Whoopi seemed to have enough of Meghan's rant on the Duke and Duchess of Sussex responded with a simple: "Okay" after a few seconds of silence.

      Tom Walker 'owes owes Kate royalties'

      Tom Walker reckons he owes The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, royalties after she gave his festive song a boost in the charts.

      The pair joined for a surprise collaboration of his track For Those Who Can't Be Here for ITV's Royal Carols: Together At Christmas and the song has surged in the charts since.

      In fact, it even went to No3 in the iTunes chart on the 26 December.

      Tom said: "It was so well charts received, I probably owe her royalties now. She sent me a letter thanking me for the opportunity but it should be me thanking her. The song has jumped 57 places in the charts. It was a wonderful experience and she was so warm. She made the effort to thank all the musicians but it was us who felt so grateful to be part of something so special.

      "We met for a rehearsal beforehand and I gave her a recording of the track Tom without the piano part so she could practise. It was obvious she had taken the time to perfect it. She was brilliant.

      "You think the Royal Family almost don't get nervous, they're so used to the spotlight. But this was obviously a very different, new experience for her."

      Meg & Harry fans spark fury as they try to cancel critic

      Fans of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have tried to cancel a critic of the couple, but it appears their efforts have backfired.

      On December 28, fiarist and royal commentator Richard Eden wrote on Twitter: “I genuinely worry that Prince Harry and #Meghan’s criticism of unnamed ‘racist’ royals has increased the danger of attacks on the #Royal Family.

      “Security needs to be stepped up as a result.”

      However, his tweet appeared to anger fans of Meghan and Harry, with one Twitter user writing: “I think you’re right Richard, although it’s a danger they live with daily.”

      Prince Harry's letter 'tells you where his head is at'

      According to a royal expert Prince Harry wrote an emotional letter to the family of a fallen military hero shortly before Christmas, which "tells you where his head is at".

      Nathan Hunt served in Afghanistan with Harry in 2008, but sadly took his own life in 2018 after suffering from severe mental health troubles, which his parents believe were linked to his military service.

      Nathan’s parents turned to Harry in a bid to have their son’s name put on an armed forces memorial, and in a letter back to them The Duke said: “I deeply empathise with what your family is going through and so wish I could assist formally, had I been in the same role I once was."

      Speaking about this, royal expert Russell Myers said: “We have heard, certainly over the last few months and the last couple of years after Harry was stripped of his military titles, about how disappointed he was of that.”

      Mr Myers said: “I think Harry really does get bad press some of the time," but added “but when Harry is speaking from the heart, I think that that is to be applauded.

      “And the fact that he reached out in this way by just saying ‘I deeply empathise with what your family is going through and I so wish that I could assist formally had I been in the role that I once was’."
