(PatriotWise.com) – According to a brand-new biography of Queen Elizabeth II, the monarch’s response to the Epstein issue involving Prince Andrew was simply one word.
Prince Andrew was stripped of all titles and responsibilities by the Queen in early January after he was sued by one of Jeffery Epstein’s victims.
Revealed earlier in March, Virginia Giuffre claimed Prince Andrew had sexually assaulted her at Epstein’s residence. The civil complaint was ultimately dropped when the two reached a financial deal.
Gyles Brandreth, a close family friend of the Royal family, wrote the book, “An Intimate Portrait.” It demonstrates that the Queen didn’t take her time to respond to the crisis surrounding Andrew’s sexual abuse.
She allegedly gave a single-word response, “intriguing.”
The book continues by describing the Queen’s affection for her son and how she got to know him well before the issue came to light.
The Queen “showed us how much she loved him by bringing him riding with her through Windsor Great Park in the rain and making sure there were photographers on hand to record the moment,” Brandwreth wrote in the book.
Following the passing of the Queen, Prince Andrew largely avoided the news.
However, a Scottish man heckled Andrew during the Queen’s procession, shouting at him, “you sick old man.”
During the Queen’s burial procession, a Royal Family supporter claimed he tackled the heckler because he thought the man was about to attack King Charles.
In Edinburgh, Craig Thomson, 34, pushed the protester heckling Prince Andrew to the ground within a few feet of the new king.
The construction worker, who has since been exonerated, said it was madness. I believed that all I was doing was acting responsibly.
If I hadn’t taken action, I believe the issue may have gotten far worse.
Thousands of people witnessed the solemn journey of Her Majesty’s funeral from the city’s Palace of Holyroodhouse to St Giles’ Cathedral on October 12. Craig Thomson, of Prestonpans, East Lothian, was one of them.
King Charles, his sister, Princess Royal, and his brothers, the Dukes of York and Wessex, followed it on foot.
