“It has been a busy week—together with, least importantly, the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, marking her seventy years on the throne,” cracked Oliver, who is British, of the 96-twelve months-used monarch’s festivities, together with, “It became once in total a four-day social gathering of the entirety that the Queen loves—with one key exception.”

(He has denied these allegations.) Virginia Giuffre alleged she became once one of those minors sex-trafficked to Prince Andrew and the royal settled alongside side her over it earlier this twelve months, whereas an employee on Epstein’s non-public island, dubbed “Pedophile Island,” claimed to have witnessed Prince Andrew “grinding” on a topless woman.
Prince Andrew reasonably with ease examined obvious for COVID-19 proper earlier than the ceremony, and thus became once MIA. Disaster averted!
“Per what most often occurs with files about Prince Andrew, that COVID take a look at will presumably with ease commit suicide in detention heart—or, you realize what? what?” requested Oliver. “Presumably he’ll pay us all millions of pounds to break bringing it up.”
