Is the Prince Andrew Photo fake?

Using your knowledge as a photographer, looking at shadows, chromatic aberration, perspective, relative quality etc..., is the photo a fake?

IMHO I think it is a fake in that both PA and VRG have been added to the base photo of GM. Not too useful for PA as the bit of them together looks more real and he would probably know more about that. Perhaps saying his hand may be "fake" is a better answer in the long run, time will tell.

This is the source of the photo I based it on. https://www.thedailybeast.com/lawyer...-prince-andrew


What do you think?

Re: Is the Prince Andrew Photo fake?

Absolutely agree...

Andrew has on hell of a long left arm if the picture is not a fake.

And anyway I believe his story, not because I am a Royalist (I am sort of but not totally), but its the latest in a long run of this sort of smear. They have tried it on many men in the public view, including Edward Heath, for whom I have the utmost respect. (he was a sailor after all).

I think the BBC again has shown a tremendous bias against Andrew, taken up by most of the press...…….

Why now, not 30 years ago...……………...

I have to agree. Listening to an interview with a BBC journalist earlier today it sounded like a character assassination on 'that sort of person'.

It might have something to do with the fact that we have a General Election coming up, and one of the party leaders (and his sidekick) would dearly like to destroy our Royalty, defence of the realm, public schools, the church, and indeed anything else to do with 'the establishment'.

Just watch the way he sings our national Anthem with such gusto.

Re: Is the Prince Andrew Photo fake?

I think it's genuine and that he is a nasty piece of work, not a hint of empathy for the abused victims.
Is it really credible he can recount exactly what he was doing on a specific day all those years ago?

Personally think he is another one of those people who thinks he can get away with anything because of his position

As to smearing other prominent people in the past, pretty sure some of them were guilty
Cyril Smith for instance and no doubt some truth in the unpleasantness that occurred at Dolphin Square too.

Public also took some convincing what the Catholic child molesters were up to.

I agree he didn't show a hint of empathy for anyone. I would like to think, and I am fairly sure his two brothers and sister would be a little more human in the same circumstances.

I am not sure that he is a nasty piece of work per se, but I do think his upbringing and the life he has led have probably sucked every ounce of empathy from his backbone.

No wonder Harry and William want to live their own lives.

I am not going to escalate this discussion, and this is my last take on the matter.

We really cannot judge others unless we really know the facts, including me.

I just thought that Andrew was defending his corner re the sex allegation. The issue of the now known peado was not a part of the argument as far as I can understand. His lack of empathy was not because he did not have empathy, but because it not an issue if his denial was genuine. I have known "criminals/lawbreakers", but I am not guilty of their crimes by association....

That's it, my 2p worth.....zipped......

Excellent advice ! In this instance it is advisable to leave comments and judgements to those far better equipped to determine the truth.

Re: Is the Prince Andrew Photo fake?

I believe these allegations not only because of his total lack of empathy for the victims whom he ignored completely and was only focussed on his own situation.

He did not even condemn his "mate" despite him being a convicted paedophile - and don't even suggest that "he was not awsre" of the allegations snd prosecution of Epstein - if that was the case then MI6 ned sacking as I have no doubt that they were responsible for vetting his contacts

Also I don't understand why tbe intervuewer didn't even question him about the video of him waving goodbye to a young woman leaving Epstein's house

And as for his pathetic excuse for why he stayed with Epstein for four days after his release - come on be serious...

I would submit that Mr Corbyn has made his wishes quite clear during public televised speeches in recent weeks, and by his own behaviour at state events.

His links with and support for terrorist organisations are also deeply worrying. Likewise John McDonnell, who has a plaque in his office honouring IRA 'martyrs'.

Anyhow, on to other things.

Re: Is the Prince Andrew Photo fake?

Whether or not anything about the original photo is a fake, the press have dug up quite a few of Andrew partying with attractive women and he has hands on in some of them and is very chummy in others.

I think it all went wrong for him when he was prevented by the Establishment from marrying Koo Stark. That's not to excuse his behaviour.
