Based on the charges leveled against Queen Elizabeth II’s son and his ties to the late convicted sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein, Peacock’s Prince Andrew: Banished explores these topics.
In His New Documentary, Peacock Looks At One Of The Biggest Scandals In The History Of The British Royal Family.
Prince Andrew: Banished Is About The Sexual Assault Claims Made By Virginia Giuffre Against Prince Andrew And His Connections With Convicted Sex Offenders Jeffrey Epstein And Ghislaine Maxwell, Who Were Both Charged With Multiple Federal Sex Trafficking Charges.
Maxwell Helped Epstein Do Bad Things, So In June 2022, He Was Found Guilty And Given A 20-Year Prison Sentence. Epstein Killed Himself In Prison In 2019 Before He Went To Court.
The Streamer’s Description Says That The Documentary “Tells The Tumultuous Story Of Prince Andrew, Duke Of York, Who Was Once Seen As The Handsome, Loved Son Of Queen Elizabeth Ii And A Decorated Naval Officer, And Whose Behavior As A Royal Brought Scandal And Disgrace To The British Royal Family’s 1200 Years Of History.”
Giuffre Sued The Royal In 2019, Saying That Between 1999 And 2002, She Was Forced To Have Sex With Him Three Times, In London, New York, And On A Private Island In The Caribbean. She Was Too Young To Do What Was Said To Have Happened.
Andrew Denied The Claims In An Interview With Bbc News In November 2019. He Said, “I Have No Memory Of Ever Meeting This Woman, None At All.”
Andrew Was Kicked Out Of The Military And Given No More Royal Duties By The Queen A Month Before The Lawsuit Was Settled In February 2022. In The Settlement, He Did Not Admit To Any Wrongdoing.
In The Trailer For The Documentary, Journalist Helen Kirwan-Taylor Says That Prince Andrew Thought He Was More Than Just A Royal. He Thought He Was A Well-Known Person.
In 1999, He Became Friends With Epstein Because Of How Well-Known He Was. After Epstein Died, Prince Andrew Said In A Statement That He Had Never Seen Epstein Do Anything Strange.
“Through New Interviews With Palace Insiders, Journalists, Members Of Andrew’s Social Circle, And The Legal Team That Brought The Allegations To Light, The Documentary Takes A Deep Dive Into The World Of Privilege, Jealousy, Desire, And Greed That Pushed Andrew First Into The Orbit Of Notorious Sex Offenders Jeffrey Epstein And Ghislaine Maxwell, And Then Into A Sordid Sex Trafficking Scandal That Threatens To Bring Down The House Of Windsor.”
The Documentary Was Made By Jamie Crawford, Who Was Also An Executive Producer And The Director. Jennifer Harkness, Laura Michalchyshyn, Sam Sniderman, Nina Burleigh, Emma Cooper, And Barbara Shearer Were Also Executive Producers.
Nick Mckinney Is A Senior Producer, And Frank Ombres Is Another Producer Who Works With Him.
