Given that he isn't, as far as anyone knows, guilty of anything it is a little worrying that he is pilloried so strongly as he is. He may be 'guilty' of being stupid, privileged, arrogant and many other things but not guilty of anything criminal. I bet there are a lot of people out there with morals less than he has who have jumped on this particular Royal bandwagon. There is no doubt he isn't brightest tool in the tool box but he has done only what many would like to do!!! Remember, he hasn't done anything illegal.

According to wikipedia there are at least 30,000 child prostitutes working in Thailand alone serving foreign sex tourists. Its not just Rolf Harris and Jimmy Saville who share that interest.

Ohh of course he still has his house, and his two daughters can support him from whatever they earn doing whatever they do (no idea really). Of course his ex still lives with him as well.
Looks like he may have to struggle through on his £249,000 (in 2011, would be more now) allowance from mummy. Poor sod, should we start a Go Fund Me page for him?

There is also an annual payment to the prince from the Privy Purse - the Queen's private income - recorded in 2011 as being £249,000.
Asked about whether this funding would continue, Buckingham Palace said only that the Duke of York's office was funded privately by the Queen.

he's a public figure - a senior member of the Royal Family. if any of them get accused of serious crimes, then he's getting it. nobody is saying he is guilty.

Hasn't done anything illegal you say? Charges could still be laid so he could be found guilty.

He's already admitted being guilty if being "too honourable".

KJMW Quote: "Given that he isn't, as far as anyone knows, guilty of anything it is a little worrying that he is pilloried so strongly as he is. He may be 'guilty' of being stupid, privileged, arrogant and many other things but not guilty of anything criminal."

Andrew is guilty of damaging the brand. Nowadays, outside of a few ceremonial duties, the Royal Family's duties are marketing, public relations, and promotion of British trade and industry. When someone (particularly someone outside of the U.K.) sees a royal at an event, the hope by the bureaucratic royal handlers is that people think of awe, majesty, remote dignity, and centuries of tradition - positive attributes. Now, if they see Andrew at an event, the first thought is of a fat, dirty old man. Definitely in the wrong direction.

During WWII, the bureaucrats put that other disreputable royal, the Duke of Windsor, on a large rock in the middle of the Atlantic known as Bermuda to keep him out of trouble. You might see Andrew becoming Governor-General of the island of St. Helena sometime soon.

I can't dispute what you have written but that doesn't make Prince Andrew guilty of anything does it?

And even if they don't charge him, he slept with a woman and admitted he doesn't remember her. They never forgive that.
Since Epstein's estate is being sued by his victims, maybe having Andrew face some litigation for damages is also in order. Her majesty wouldn't like that.
