The Photo that Won't Go Away
I am fascinated by body language. I am by no means an expert, but look at this picture...I don't know about you, but I can tell you if this was me I would not be thrilled with the old guy's pelvic invasion in my personal space. It's creepy.
This picture was taken in 2001, it's Britain's Duke of York with Virginia Roberts. Roberts has since come forward allegedly accusing the Prince of underage sexual trysts.
Buckingham Palace has "categorically' denied that the Duke of York had "any form of sexual contact or relationship" with Virginia Roberts. But boy, oh boy...this photo is d-a-m-a-g-i-n-g.
Equally fascinating to me was the response to this very incriminating photo. You guessed it..."the photo was faked." Sources close to the Duke have cast doubt over the authenticity of the photo by claiming the Duke has "chubby" fingers and the person in this photo does not have chubby fingers! You have got to be kidding me?! That's the best you've got--a "chubby finger" defense. P-l-e-a-s-e.
I'll be watching to see how this rolls out. In the era of the #metoo movement, will it make a difference? Will the women be believed? Or will the wealthy who allegedly took part in this elite sex trafficking ring walk away?
