The naked sister of the queen
Everyone knows the Queen's younger sister, Margaret. Some time ago she was at any solemn event and always looked luxurious and expensive. Thanks to royal privileges that allow having all the best. However, she also loved to stand out with something scandalous and unexpected from such a person as she. Her first trick is considered to be a relationship with Peter Townsend, who was 17 years older than her. When Margaret was 22, the couple decided to get married. The family threatened her with the loss of her royal status and the girl calmed down. Some period later, she married photographer Anthony Armstrong-Jones. There were various rumors from alcohol and drugs, and ending with strange connections with also well-known Mick Jagger and Peter Sellers. However, these were trifles. The scandal waited for the Margaret after the robbers of her branch of Lloyds Bank unveiled her naked pictures with her extramarital lover. This sensational story was the foundation of “The Bank Job” with Jason Statham as the main character.
The Nazi costume for Prince Harry
Probably if you were the grandson of the Queen, you would restrain yourself from some crazy acts. However, Prince Harry didn’t interfere with his royal status. Nothing bothered him when he appeared in a suit with a swastika on one of his friend's party. Or rather it was Nazi Afrika Korps uniform. This was unacceptable for such a person as he and it was noted by the press. This caused great dissatisfaction with the Britain’s Jewish community, given that this happened 2 weeks before Holocaust Memorial Day. This incident was in all newspapers around the world, so most people were shocked. Under the pressure of his grandmother, young Prince made a public apology and called this suit an unsuccessful choice for a costume party. Unlike his more responsible brother, William, Harry was also caught smoking marijuana three years earlier. This story quickly subsided, and the reputation of the Prince improved after he was accepted into the Sandhurst Military Academy. Most likely this is because of his royal status, which he so often ignored.
Kate’s topless photos
Kate Middleton relatively recently became a part of the royal family of Great Britain. After she married Prince William, she became granddaughter-in-law for the Queen and a new role model for the whole of England. But at the same time, everyone started to carp at her and look for flaws. And as you know, the one who searches always finds. Barely a year after the wedding, the couple was vacationing in Provence, France. Kate decided to sunbathe topless a little bit and paparazzi captured this moment with great distances. French magazines have earned a lot from this news. After the photos were published, they plunged the Queen into shock. In this case, the royal family appealed to the French paparazzi with the request not to climb into their personal life. It really was not entirely acceptable on their part; because the crown does not mean that you are not a human and should be perfect all the time.
Indecent acts on the Queen’s royal yacht
Paul Burrell is a former butler of Princess Diana and after her death; he gave interviews and appeared on television several times. But what he said it is not very important. More recently, he admitted that he was gay and had been a very long time. Then one of the most notorious scandals came up, which could cause terrible consequences for the Queen and the naval army at its period. In the last century, same-sex relationships were illegal in the UK military. But this didn’t prevent higher ranks to make secret meetings. In 1981, dozen people from the Royal Navy did some indecent acts on the Queen’s royal yacht, Britannia. As Borrell was a friend of the royal family, he was also invited there. Having found out about this the Queen personally talked to the guy and advised him to find a girlfriend. It seems that it is not necessary to tell how Elisabeth was surprised that her employees were engaged in same-sex, and even on her yacht.
Secret correspondence of Prince Charles with his ex
In 1981, Charles married the beautiful Diane. The press and ordinary people loved her and treated her with respect. It’s not a secret that Prince was in relationships with Camilla Parker Bowles before. There was a rumor that after their brake up, they continued to chat. They kept in touch so well that Charles spent the night before the wedding with his ex. After the divorce from Princess Diana, he returned to Camilla. As a result, this led to the indignation of the rest of the royal family and press condemnations. However, this was not the end. After the secret correspondence between Charles and Camille were promulgated, a scandal began that affected the reputation of the Crown. The conversation between them can not be called romantic, but rather humorous. Charles was saing odd quotes sometimes. It's very funny to read how the Prince says that he wants to live in Camilla's trousers. In response, she offers him the role of panties. And Charles answers “Or, God forbid, a Tampax”. People with a good imagination represent tampon with his face.
Prince Philip is а racist
It remains a mystery, as the Queen allowed her husband Prince Philip talk politically incorrect jokes. Such cases were much in their 70 years life together. Here are some of them. During the meeting between Prince Philip and the President of Nigeria, the second one has been standing in traditional African apparel. The Prince reacted very unexpectedly to such a greeting and asked why the president looked as if he was going to bed. Another incident occurred during his visit to China. He told a British student that if he stayed here for a long time, he would return home with slitty eyes. Another case was at the electronic factory when Prince called a bunch of fuse box that “…it was put in by an Indian”. Media has always criticized his comments and sometimes even laughed at his political ignorance. Being a representative of the country is very responsible work. A wrong expression can destroy relations with allies. It’s advised to Royal family not to send Prince Philip to avoid unpleasant consequences.
Diana’s affair and her lover
As already mentioned Charles was not entirely faithful husband and kept a secret correspondence with his ex at that time. Diana was also not a diligent wife and had extramarital secrets. After 5 years with Charles, she was fed up with a marriage and decided to switch to Officer James Hewitt. According to their mutual friends, she sent him many love letters. In 1995, this ceased to be a secret, as Diana confessed to this in an interview. This was the reason that rumors began to circulate about the real father of Prince Harry. This gossip quickly died down as it turned out that their romance began after the boy's birth. Diana always spoke very gently about their relationship, but not the fact that the officer was breeding them. After her death, he offered to sell love letters from the Princess for £ 10 million. This act afflicted the entire royal family and their response was harsh, as this was a betrayal of Princess Diana.
What could be worse than Nazi clothing? No clothing!
As you already understood, it will again be about Prince Harry. This time, he was photographed not in an unsuccessful Nazi suit, but in his birthday suit. This event occurred at the end of the summer in 2012. Prince decided to arrange an inappropriate photo session during his trip to Vegas, where he was in not the best condition. Together with his friends, he stopped at Wynn hotel. During the party, the guys decided to play strip billiards. Everything would be fine, and photos would be better if he was not naked. In the photo, his highness covered his royal dignity with one hand, and the second hand held the naked girl. It seems that it’s not very convenient to play billiards in this look. These photos shattered the family's trust in relation to Harry. As at other times, he had to apologize for what he had done, but this time it took him a whole month. As a result, he said that it was a very shameful party and it will not happen again. It seems that Harry had to already realize that he shouldn’t walk naked in the presence of cameras.
Prince Andrew’s lecherous scandal
This story can not be called an ordinary prank. Prince Andrew, the Queen’s third child was accused of sexual harassment in 2015. Very significant evidence was provided and this story did not go away for a long time from the first pages of the newspapers. Virginia Roberts, who was 17 at that time, claims to be in sexual slavery to the rich and influential Jeffery Epstein. The banker not only used the girl by himself but also exchanged her with other high-ranking officials. One of them was Prince Andrew. In her words, she was forced to have sex with him more than once. In case if she didn’t agree, Epstein threatened to kill or kidnap her. In the future, the banker was accused of pedophilia. However, this case has not been closed yet. Photos provided by the girl, where she together with Andrew doesn’t prove the sexual relationship between them. However, even a hint of the possibility of such a situation already offends the Queen.
Mark Phillips’ cheated his wife
The Queen has only one daughter, Princess Anna, whom she loves very much and was happy that she was getting married in 1973. Her husband became Lieutenant Mark Phillips. The wedding itself was very luxurious and can compete with the modern Super Bowl with the number of viewers. But the happiness didn’t last long. In the 1980s, Mark was seen in a secret relationship with Heather Tonkin. She was an art teacher from New Zealand. She gave birth to a child from Mark, that paternity was confirmed by DNA test sometime later. Such it was impossible to close from the press and especially from Anna. In 1992 the couple finally divorced. Princess didn’t waste time and very quickly found a replacement. An interesting fact is that two children from the first marriage, Peter and Zara became the first grandsons of the monarch for 500 years who didn’t inherit the royal title. It's very sad considering in what scandalous story they got involved.
Charles was dating Diana's sister when they met
Initially, Charles was in a relationship with the young and beautiful Lady Sarah Spencer. In 1977, the couple was invited to a party where his that period girlfriend introduced her younger sister, Diana. She was only 16; she was a modest sweet girl. This was the beginning of the romance, which today's journalists call the brightest in the history of the royal family. Charles didn’t want to leave Sarah for her younger sister. He chose a slow but correct tactic and began to move cautiously towards Diana. Three years later the Prince broke up with the eldest Spencer and concentrate on the youngest one during a joint holiday. It's a pity when you miss the chance to become a next Princess, and it's even more offensive when her younger sister becomes the one instead of you. Although looking through what a terrible marriage Diana went through and that it ended in a divorce anyway, maybe Sara was the luckiest sister.
The press was often called Sarah Ferguson as “Fergie”, and after a marriage to Prince Andrew in 1986, she did not leave the pages of newspapers. This caused irritation in the royal family, as she constantly tried to attract attention to herself. After 8 years, their happy life came to an end and the couple began to live separately. Duchess of York was seen with a lot of men. However, one case caused a shock and even disgust for most. One sunny day, Sarah sunbathing topless on the French Riviera and John Bryan gently enveloped her leg kisses with. Photos of the Texas businessman holding in his mouth the fingers of the ex-princess appeared on the pages of The Daily Mirror at the same day. This immediately spoiled the image of the royal person. People were dissatisfied with what extravagant life she was living for their own taxes. Fortunately for Queen Elizabeth, Fergie and Andrew’s divorce proceedings ended in 1996.
Edward VIII abdicated and married
Let's return to the 30th years of the last century. At that period, the young prince Edward VIII became involved in captivity by one of the first biggest scandals of the British family. After he became a King there was a question about marriage. At that time there were even more severe laws for the monarchical family, which also concerned marriage. Unfortunately, Edward fell in love with Wallis Simpson. You might ask why their relationship was forbidden. To begin with, at that time she had already been divorced twice, and she was also a citizen of America. There was a question before the young King about whether he agrees to marry her and abdicated, or subordinates royal status and remains on the throne. In the end, he chose to stay with the girl and gave royal powers to his brother. Later, along with FBI files, new data were revealed. The wife of the former King was a Nazi sympathizer. She communicated with the German ambassador and handed him British secrets. Did the royal family feel her infidelity or not, but they certainly didn’t like her.
Criticism of the royal family from Diana’s brother
Diana Spencer was so tired of the status of a princess that she was happy and cut off the peace after a divorce from Charles. The way the royal family treated her and the marriage as a whole very shook her a lot. However, the loss of the title “Her Royal Highness” didn’t become a cause for the press and they continued to get interested in her life. The fact of her death in August 1997 was a shock to all and even triggered a series of fanatical suicides. A large number of people wanted to comment on this loss. The most memorable speech was by her brother, Charles Spencer. The guy restrained his resentment and tenderly spoke of his sister. It was clearly visible that he condemned the royal family and the press as a whole for the unworthy treatment towards her. He said that maybe if not a divorce from Charles, things could be different. And it would even be better if she never became a Princess and did not know all these royal things.
Sarah Ferguson tried to sell her ex-husband
Since the divorce of Sara and Prince Andrew, it's been almost 15 years, and the woman still can not give up the drama around her. During this time, her company Hartmoor had collapsed and she managed to get into a strong financial crisis and plunge into debt. The journalists began to call her not “Fergie” but “The Duchess of Debts”. At that moment, she remembered her ex-husband, Prince Andrew and decided to make some money on him. One businessman offered Sarah half a million pounds for the meeting with the Prince. It was the very tempting offer, considering that it would cover most of her debts. However, this profitable affair was a mistake of her life… The businessman was actually a cunning journalist from News of the World. In addition to the fact that Fergie did not receive her fee, she was filmed. This event greatly offended the royal family and closed the door for her to the wedding of William and Kate.
