As his chances to return to royal duties look beyond shot, Prince Andrew supposedly intends to spend the winter shooting whilst his live-in ex-wife moves into a £5 million London pad in Belgravia; who is paying for their lavish lifestyle?
This morning, The Sun revisited a story already published by the MailOnline in August and tried to claim they’d got hold of exclusive pictures of a house purchased by Sarah, Duchess of York for a sum variously estimated to be somewhere between £3 million ($3.4 million, €3.5 million or درهم12.4 million) and £5 million ($5.6 million, €5.8 million or درهم20.7 million) earlier this year.
In spite of the feckless lover of having her toes sucked continually being described as “continually on the verge of financial bankruptcy” and the ex-husband she still lives with having had to pay a sum estimated as high as £12 million ($13.5 million, €13.9 million or درهم49.6 million) to a woman he claimed never to have met, The Sun suggested the residence “certainly fit for royalty.”
Going further, the paper’s Rianne Ison quoted Sophie Smith of Zhoosh Paints as describing the décor as “sumptuous and welcoming” and “quite regal,” yet made no reference to how ‘Randy Andy’s’ still constant sidekick could have afforded such. The involvement of the DJ turned property developer and former owner of the mews house, Sebastian MacDonald-Hall, was not referenced either.
Elsewhere last week, the Daily Beast’s royal correspondent Tom Sykes reported that Prince Andrew is said to be “relaxed about [his] royal exclusion” and now, rather than “banging” them, “just want to shoot birds.”
Shot down previously for having described spending times with convicted sex offenders Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell as “straightforward shooting weekends,” the rotten ratbag royal, if you’ll believe the unnamed sources who spoke to Sykes, is “looking forward to a busy winter of social and personal events anchored around the pheasant shooting season, which got underway in the UK on 1st October.”
Continuing, Sykes added:
“For Andrew, it’s a passport to a winter of fun… He still has the support of a loyal group of friends in England and Scotland. The winter is quite a social time for him as he is still a prized guest at some really good shoots where he can rely on the discretion of the host and the other guests – and his presence isn’t likely to be revealed to the newspapers. I’m sure he is looking forward to a busy few months.”
Again, today, we conclude by asking a question that has only ever been responded to with a “no comment” by ‘Feckless Fergie’ and that is: “Given you’ve clearly got plenty of cash sloshing around to purchase Belgravia mews houses, did you ever repay the loans and other financial assistance you took from the since croaked paedophile Jeffrey Epstein?”
