Queen’s nephew Linley is the royal blackmail victim

A nephew of the Queen is being named as the victim in the Royal blackmail plot. His name is now being widely touted on the internet, including the authoritative Huffington Post, quoting the Radar publication.

Royal Anecdotes

My wife is really eating this stuff up. The name in question is supposedly David Linley, son of Princess Margaret. Apparently the UK press is not allowed to name the victim of the blackmailing effort, because of his status as a member of the royal family. My wife and her friend spent most of yesterday trying to figure out who it was. Even this morning, while the blackmailers have been arrested, there’s precious little in the search engines (yet) about this unfolding drama. I figured I’d post it here as well to help spread the word.

  1. I am pretty sure its not David
    I have known him on and off for 2o years and he is very anti drugs.

  2. When will the British Establishment move into the internet age, and realize that gagging orders fail to suppress a name becoming public, but succeed in creating far greater interest in a scandal.

  3. @John – good point. Those are pretty archaic laws, and seemingly unenforceable these days. Now watch as I’m denied entry to the UK next month. :)

    @David – It’s probably all still rumors at this point – I’ve read comments like yours all around, and others who say it’s definitely him. Only time will tell.

  4. @David – for what it’s worth, Ted Haggard was apparently very anti-homosexual too, but look how that turned out.

    When it takes just the briefest look back at Royal history (recent and less so)to see that they have always enjoyed “playing the pink oboe” why on earth should we be surprised at their continuing antics. Time to grow up m’thinks!

  6. i’m pretty sure the reason why the naming of the royal has not been allowed is to prevent the course of law being prejudiced and would be afforded to even the man on the street, irrespective of his social status.
