Prince Andrew Reportedly Wants Kevin Spacey To Testify In His Defense
One of the many, many photos floating around out there that make Prince Andrew look real guilty, is one taken in 2002 of Kevin Spacey and Ghislaine Maxwell yukking it up while seated in THE QUEEN’s extra fancy Laz-E-Boys located in the Throne Room at Buckingham Palace. Knowing the company he keeps, it’s logical to assume Kevin and Ghislaine were there at Andrew’s invitation. However, just as Andrew has tried to explain away that photo of him with his arm around his accuser Virginia Giuffre as Ghislaine looks on like a proud mama, according to The Sun, sources say that Andrew wants to further distance himself from Ghislaine by having Kevin testify on his behalf that he was the one, not Andrew, who invited her to fart into THE QUEEN’s cushions. Andrew apparently doesn’t even know how that woman got past the guards!
Yes, this knob reportedly thinks having Kevin Spacey testify on his behalf at the jury trial, that he wants, is going to have any outcome other than Andrew being laughed out of court. If these reports are true, Andrew hasn’t just been living under a rock his entire life, he’s been living under however many rocks it takes to build multiple palaces. Here’s the picture in question.

Looks innocent enough, just a couple of alleged sex offenders having a goof at their friend’s mom’s house. The Sun reports:
The Duke wants to distance himself from convicted Ghislaine Maxwell, who was infamously pictured larking around in Buckingham Palace’s throne room with the shamed actor in 2002.
The VIP tour was organized by Andrew — but he wants Spacey to tell jurors it was he who invited pal Maxwell.
A source said: “Andrew had invited Spacey for the tour of the Palace. She came with him — not as a guest of Andrew’s.”
The Duke of York, 61, claimed in legal documents this week that 60-year-old Maxwell was not a close friend of his despite snaps of them together, including one showing them his accuser Virginia Giuffre.
Sure. Sounds legit. If they were close friends, Andrew would have personally gone to New York to break off their friendship like he says he did when he realized his other friend, Ghislaine’s sex trafficking associate Jeffrey Epstein, wasn’t the upstanding citizen he thought him to be. Besides, you don’t invite Kevin Spacey to testify on your behalf unless you actually want him to slip into his Frank Underwood accent and give a fiery speech talking about “you can’t handle the truth!” and blowing up your entire spot. You want ants, leave a donut on the counter. You want a PERFORMANCE that eventually leads to your conviction, put Kevin Spacey on the witness stand. The Sun adds:
The insider added: “The snaps go right to the centre of the claims against Andrew, and an image of Ghislaine Maxwell in the most private space within Buckingham Palace looks very damning.
“But if Kevin can convince a jury he was the crucial link with Ghislaine, rather than Andrew, it distances the Prince from her somewhat — and that’s crucial.
“Andrew also believes such a gifted actor and public speaker could be a very compelling asset in front of a jury.”
Last night a spokesman for the Duke of York said of Spacey: “It is categorically untrue that any help has been offered or that we have accepted any.”
Oh, so they DID ask! Personally, I would like to see it! Is there a petition or something I can sign? I feel like if we all work together on this, we can definitely convince Kevin to testify. And not that we need further convincing that Andrew is full of it, The Sun notes that Ghislaine’s 2002 visit certainly wasn’t the only occasion that Ghislaine was allowed to kick it at Buckingham Palace. Or at Balmoral. Or at his own daughter’s 18th birthday party at Windsor Castle where she, Jeffrey, and Harvey Weinstein all “posed in fancy dress for a snap.” Poor Princess Beatrice is probably really good at Photoshop by now. The Sun adds:
… former royal protection officer Paul Page has told Vanity Fair that the socialite was able to “breeze into the Palace” despite being the daughter of disgraced media tycoon Robert Maxwell.
Mr Page added: “But that was neither here nor there to Prince Andrew.
“As far as he was concerned, she was allowed to come in and go as she pleased.”
Mr Page, who worked with Andrew between 1998 and 2004, went on: “We were instructed not to put her name in the visitors’ book.”
I fear Andrew’s only hope is that Johnnie Cochran rises from the dead to represent him with an “if the name’s not writ, you must acquit!” defense.
