Prince Andrew is not the only royal in Jeffrey Epstein’s black book
Jeffrey Epstein’s little black book of contacts was full of some of the richest & most powerful people in the world. From politicians to rock stars, Epstein entertained them on his private jet and at his luxurious mansions. Did some of these famous people like Prince Andrew, Duke of York partake in Jeffrey Epstein’s sex trafficking ring?
Since Jeffrey Epstein was exposed as a sex trafficker, powerful people like current U.S. President Donald Trump, Bill Clinton, and Prince Andrew were implicated in being involved. Prince Andrew was named by one of Epstein’s victims, Virginia Roberts-Guiffre, who claims she was forced to sleep with Prince Andrew three times.
It might not come as a surprise, but Prince Andrew isn’t the only royal who turns up in Jeffrey Epstein’s little black book of contacts. The Daily Sun got a hold of the book and found David Linley’s name in there, too.
Who is David Linley?
The other royal in Jeffrey Epstein’s book alongside Prince Andrew is David Linley. Also called David Armstrong-Jones, he’s HM Queen Elizabeth II’s nephew and the Earl of Snowdon. His mother was Queen Elizabeth’s younger sister, Princess Margaret. He is on the Board for Christie’s Auction House and owns the furniture company Linley’s.
Viscount Linley is first cousins with Prince Andrew, who also appears in Jeffrey Epstein’s little black book. Prince Andrew came under public fire for his friendship with Epstein, which has heated up again after Epstein’s apparent suicide and Ghislaine Maxwell’s arrest.
How did Linley know Jeffrey Epstein?
It’s unknown how Viscount Linley knew Jeffrey Epstein. Ghislaine Maxwell allegedly introduced Prince Andrew to Jeffrey Epstein in the 1990s. Maxwell’s father was media mogul Robert Maxwell, who owned The Daily Mirror and other European publications. The connection could also have been made by Prince Andrew himself.
It’s also unknown how Linley came to fly on Jeffrey Epstein’s “Lolita Express.” Was he flying with Prince Andrew, or alone? It’s also unclear how long Linley knew Epstein or whether he knew about Epstein’s illegal activity.
How involved is Linley with the Royal Family?
David Linley is on many charitable boards that the Royal Family has founded. Linley was asked by Prince Charles to serve as his second on the Prince’s Board before Charles asked his sons, William and Harry. Prince Andrew also served on the board before stepping down from royal duties due to his connections with Jeffrey Epstein.
How has this affected Linley’s personal life?
While it’s unclear of the cause, David Linley and his wife Serena are separating after twenty-six years of marriage. According to sources, the split is amicable. However, the announcement was made earlier this year, making us wonder if it had to do with Linley’s involvement with Jeffrey Epstein and Prince Andrew.
Will Linley be asked to come forward?
We’re not sure if Linley will be called to testify in the Jeffrey Epstein case or Ghislaine Maxwell’s upcoming trial. Prince Andrew might be called to testify, as he knew Jeffrey Epstein for a long time, but it’s unclear if he will cooperate with US authorities. Buckingham Palace denies any wrongdoing allegations against Prince Andrew.
Attorney Spencer Kuvin who represents many of Jeffrey Epstein’s victims encouraged people in Jeffrey Epstein’s little black book to come forward. While Prince Andrew expressed he would fully cooperate in the past, it appears he’s declining to come forward now. Likewise, Linley is providing no comment at this time, nor is Buckingham Palace.
Jeffrey Epstein’s accomplice Ghislaine Maxwell is now being held in custody until her trial in 2021. Here’s our article focusing on Maxwell and Epstein’s scandalous relationship.
