Prince Charles wrote handwritten letters to Jimmy Savile several times asking for help with the royal family’s image, knowing the presenter was connected to many institutions across the country
Prince Charles has enlisted predatory pedophile Jimmy Savile for help with royal family public relations, letters show.
The future king wrote handwritten letters to the notorious TV host, who was later revealed to be a sex beast who used his position of power and influence to rape and assault teenagers.
Savile’s advice and ideas have even been seen by the Queen and Prince Phillip, and now the letters will be featured in a new television documentary for the first time ever.
Charles knew that fundraiser Savile was connected to many institutions across the country – but there is no indication that neither the prince nor any member of the royal family knew of Savile’s wrongdoing.
After a series of PR blunders involving the now-disgraced Prince Andrew and his then-wife Sarah Ferguson, Charles approached Savile to try and improve the family’s image.
The star then reportedly drew up an action plan, which was viewed by the Queen and Prince Phillip, according to the new documentary released today on Netflix.
A letter Charles wrote in Sandringham on 14 January 1989 said: ‘I may be wrong but you’re the guy who knows what’s going on.
“What I really need is a list of suggestions from you. I really want to get to parts of the country that others can’t.”
Savile’s philanthropy has been a front for horrific sexual assaults on hundreds of vulnerable victims ranging in age from five to 75.
Through his work for Stoke Mandeville Hospital, Bucks, he came into contact with the Prince and Princess of Wales in the 1980s.
Princess Diana opened her spinal injury unit in 1983.
Charles also sought advice on disaster response following Andrew’s performance following the Pan Am Flight 103 bombing.
Prince Andrew had been sent to the site but was heavily criticized for saying it was “much worse for Americans,” adding it was “only a matter of time” before a plane “fell out of the sky.” ” may be.
Charles then wrote a lengthy letter to Savile on January 27, 1989, which read: “I am enclosing a copy of my memo on disasters containing your points, which I showed my father. He showed HM”
The day after the Lockerbie disaster, Charles turned to “Jimmy” again for help with Fergie, whose behavior was becoming increasingly embarrassing.
Andrew’s then-wife fell increasingly out of favor with the British press and much of the anger directed at the royal family for not attending a Lockerbie memorial fell on her, it has been reported.
He wrote: “I wonder if you would ever be ready to meet my sister-in-law the Duchess of York? I can’t help feeling that it would be extremely useful to her if you could. I think she could use some of your no-nonsense common sense.”
On April 16, 1990, Charles asked for help with a speech he was giving at London’s Guildhall.
He wrote: “You understand what moves people so well and you are wonderfully skeptical and practical. Can you take a look at this draft and tell me how you think we can best reach out to people?”
Then on July 4th he wrote from Highgrove House: ‘Dear Jimmy, I cannot tell you how grateful I am for the most useful assistance you gave to my recent Guildhall speech.
“It was really kind of you to take the trouble to put these great notes together and give me so much food for thought.
“Whether you think the end result makes sense is another matter. Thanks again and heartily, Charles.”
The documentary Jimmy Savile: A British Horror Story shows how Savile made contacts at the highest levels of society, including then Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher and senior police officers.
