Royals move to protect Prince Andrew amid 'sex slave allegations'

Epstein - who is Prince Andrew’s pal - was found unresponsive in his jail cell Saturday morning.
The 66-year-old was accused of sexually abusing dozens of underage girls and had pleaded not guilty to federal charges of sex trafficking and conspiracy. Mr Epsetin was facing up to 45 years in prison if found guilty.
Andrew has denied accusations he indulged in sex sessions with underaged girls, allegedly supplied to him by Epstein.
Now Her Majesty has offered Andrew and Fergie a place to escape the scandal at her place in Balmoral.
It is understood Andrew and Fergie took separate flights to Scotland with Fergie staying at Craigowan, a shooting lodge on the estate, while Andrew will stay in Balmoral Castle with the rest of the royal family.
One royal aide revealed: “They are both facing some grim times. Balmoral is a very quiet, very remote place where people can work things out in total calm.
