Oh dear, talk about a right royal stink. The Duchess of York has been caught on camera offering to sell access to her ex-hubby Prince Andrew for cash.
The News of the World says a “desperate” Sarah Ferguson was filmed offering an undercover reporter posing as a wealthy businessman the chance to meet Andrew, who works as a special representative for UK Trade & Investment, for £500,000.
The tab claims she took a down-payment of $40,000 cash for the intro, quoting her as saying, “Look after me and he’ll look after you . . . you’ll get it back tenfold. I can open any door you want.”
On the video soundtrack, the duchess allegedly tells the undercover reporter to have some dough wired to her UK bank account, saying: “£500,000 when you can, to me, open doors.”
And although Andrew apparently knew nothing of his exe’s shenanigans, she told the reporter: “Andrew said to me, ‘Tell him 500,000′.
“He knows that he’s had to underwrite me up to now because I’ve got no money. So if you want to meet him in your business, look after me and he’ll look after you … you’ll get it back tenfold.”
It’s true, she is skinters.
“I have not got a bean to my name. I’m a taxpayer, a British taxpayer and I left the royal family for freedom and in freedom it means I am bereft. I’m hopeless,” she adds.
“Do you understand that I absolutely have not a pot to piss in?” she concluded.
Oh, the scandal! Is this the end of the road for the flame haired toff? Someone has some serious explaining to do…
