London, March 4 (Reuters): Britain’s Prince Charles was quizzed by one of his own servants yesterday as part of a probe into the collapse of royal butler Paul Burrell’s theft trial and allegations of fraud and gay rape among his staff.
A spokeswoman for the heir-to-the-throne said Sir Michael Peat, his private secretary, questioned his boss as part of an internal investigation launched in November after one of the worst bout of scandal to hit the House of Windsor.
“Sir Michael Peat spoke to the Prince today. He had always made it clear that towards the end of the review he would be talking to the Prince and we are at that stage now,” she said. She said the results of the inquiry were expected mid-March and would be made“totally public”.
