I actually think itís worse that Peter is shilling milk to a 90% lactose intolerant race then Michael selling access to Putin. Michael took a call from someone that wanted to sell something to the Russians. Michael said sure, it would cost $X. Why would Michael need to research this guy, maybe he never comes up with the money and itís all moot. After the money came through, the real research would happen. Michael isnít a magician, maybe Putin wouldnít meet. Putin doesnít need Michael. Putin would only meet if the seller had something interesting. And if it was a terrorist selling bombs, I doubt theyíd go through Michael to get to Putin.

I find this one an interesting little issue and I am drawn to what you have said about it.  He is selling access, not secrets.  This sort of thing happens in business all the time, and politics.  Isn't this essentially what lobbyists do?  I think Michael is cashing in on his own identity and family history as well as his cousin's.  He has his HRH because he is the grandson of a king, not because of any connection to the current monarch, and he has strong and long-standing Russian interests and connections.  He's not a public servant so why shouldn't he cash in on his position and connections? 

I agree - it happens all the time - people get jobs because of who they know or promotions or some sort of pay off - ie a fully paid holiday in a nice place for a favour done.

Just look at consulting firms who place candidates for money - it is all about being a middle man for those that want connections.

If he wants to "be in business making introductions" then while there maybe some distasteful elements at either end it is not illegal. In Australia just see where ex politicians end up - trading on their past job where they were paid a lot of money by the taxpayer. Michael was never a paid civil servant or politician

I donít disagree with your point, but I doubt it was just introductions, especially since heís been doing this for decades. This stinks to high heaven, and I wonder if there isnít more to come.

 I would say there probably is more to come and it won't it wont be pretty.

Love the posture and foot placement on that little girl!  Here's hoping she is well on the road to recovery and will be reminiscing about this event for decades to come.

Not really, BP is an adept hand at damage control.

Prior to Andy's nuclear explosion interview, BP's damage control on the Epstein thing was spot on. Plus Prince Michael hasn't been accused of a crime by a victim.

I completely agree LF. The prevailing story is that cash for access was to Russian officials, not British, and no minors were involved. Whether thatís the whole story - who knows? But Prince Michael is unlikely to try ham-handed damage control.

Same! The person who shared about the visit also had some nice things to say about Princes Michael. No doubt she steps in it frequently but it seems like she has a decent side too.

I'm glad she's feeling a bit recovered and back on her feet. Blood clots can be very serious.

Happy birthday to an unapologetically unique princess from the old mold. Thank goodness they don't make them like her anymore Blush
I love the look on HM's face in this pic. Makes me nostalgic for brighter days.
