I’ve been casually following Prince Andrew’s downfall, mainly to see at least one middle-aged white prominent male get some kind of consequences. In case you haven’t been paying attention, the short story is that he was a pal of Epstein and had been accused of sex with a 17 year-old girl (not associated with Epstein) by the girl herself. After a terrible interview with the BBC where he claimed that he liked to fly in Epstein’s private jet but he didn’t actually fuck any young girls, blah blah lie blah, his mom the Queen sacked him, and polite society is shunning him.
Of all the things I read about this affair, this shocked me the most:
On Friday, the Queen was spotted horse riding with Prince Andrew in the grounds of Windsor in what one royal expert said was an apparent show of support to her second son.
The Queen is 93 years old and she still rides a horse? That’s amazing.
