Right Royal Mystery

October 31st, 2007 (05:17 pm)

Okay, so this "member of the Royal family" that people are apparently attempting to blackmail over remarks made by an aide (involving a sex act alledgedly performed on the male aide), has been named by Italian newspapers, US Fox TV news in the states, and is all over teh interwebs I hear.

Someone want to put me out of my mysterymisery and tell me who? Pls?

(Current betting at work is 2-1 Beatice, 3-1 Prince Edward and 500-1 Princess Margaret of Kent)

You were actually almost close, I guess. Supposedly it was the Queen's nephew

As the person above said - Lord Linley is the name I've been hearing around. A member of the Queen's family but not really a royal at the moment. (unless the Queen, Charles, William, Harry, Andrew, Beatrice, Eugenie, Edward, Louise, unborn Wessex, Anne, Peter and Zara should all die at the same time without procreating more.)

I would have thought 'Not a member of the immediate family' would have procluded Bea and Prince Edward. My guess was either one of Princess Margaret's two, or one of the younger members of the Kents or Gloucesters. Probably not Marina Ogilvy because no-one would bother blackmailing her over things that she does/did publically.

Then I read the comment with the answer, and so can pat myself on the back! Although, to be honest, as it seems all the evidence of him doing anything about which he could be blackmailed is a video of an aide saying that these things happened, I would probably take the whole thing with a pinch of salt - would David Linley even have aides?

And if he wants to have sex with them who would care, except his wife?
Going to the police is such wonderfully correct behaviour - I mean he could just have asked Harry to shoot the buggers!

And it is just not in the class of this bit of political blackmail mentioned by missmurchison!
