The Royal Family are exempt from Freedom of Information requests and can veto BBC programmes. Why do we put up with this? (Independent, Jan 4, 2015):

Their unchecked influence and lack of transparency defies belief

As you know by now, Prince Andrew has been accused by a woman known as Jane Doe 3 of being “forced” by Jeremy Epstein to have sex with him when she was a teenager.

He was named in court documents in the US, although not as a party, and the tabloids have been full of further salacious claims. Buckingham Palace forcefully denies these allegations.

The story will not end there, but for now that is all we can say on this particular scandal. It should, however, raise questions about our monarchy, its role and position, the devious, secret way it operates.
